Hi /trv/ I am 21 and want to travel on my own and meet people. Where is a good place to start? I am happy to backpack and stay in hostels. I love hot countries and beaches. I would happily spend my holiday chilling/traveling with a cute girl but I don't want to pay for her so I am guessing that rules out meeting locals?

Hey, /trv/,

After many years of flying many places, I had my first new airline experience in a long time last weekend on a SWISS flight from SFO to ZRH. It used “biometric boarding,” where we looked at a camera and got let on to the plane rather than scanning boarding passes. Curious to know how widespread this new thing is, or whether it’s restricted to a few airports (SFO seems exactly the type of place to try this sort of thing out; if I had to guess they are probably also using it in Seattle and Boston).

Not interested in stoking paranoid fantasies, but I also wonder where the images being compared came from—electronic passport photos, I assume? Nobody was photographed at check-in.

Probably sideways picture unrelated.

Where do you scan boarding pass? I just get it, then go through a gate scan my passport, smile on camera and then only show it to the airplane carrier. I obviously also go through xrey check
>>
>>2071197
>Where do you scan boarding pass?
In every other flight I can remember getting on, you scan it (or they scan it) right before you walk onto the jetway. Here nothing at all was scanned, just the picture. Was totally new to me, and I have traveled pretty widely, including in the aforementioned UK, where I have scanned a boarding pass to get through little gates leading to security (in American airports this check is typically done by some airport employee who looks at the boarding passes and sometimes documents).

Same technology, different point along the transit route. This was at departure boarding, not arrival immigration. I did read that the facial recognition is courtesy of the CBP cloud, though.

I actually look forward to the expansion of this stuff; they’ve got my face on file already, might as well use it to save me from standing in lines or speed them up. (I didn’t actually notice any decrease in boarding time, but Lufthansa claims it’s shaving 9-10 minutes off the process).

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
>also known as /sqt/ (Stupid Questions Thread)

For most of your quick one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If your question is specific to a popular destination (such as Japan, Thailand, Italy, France, etc.), check to see if there is a relevant thread before asking it here.

If your question is about an administrative or procedural matter (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), try to be as specific as possible. Such information may include, but is not limited to: your nationality, where you're going, any layover points, etc. These details do get missed quite often, and they sometimes can make a difference.

If you are planning a trip and would like some help, try to have some idea of what you want to do. Nobody here can read your mind; tell us your hobbies & interests, at least.

If your questions pertain to COVID-19 in some way, the answer to most of them is "We don't know."

All information in this thread and any external URLs are for reference only. Use at your own risk.

You mean those quarantine hotels for when you arrive back in Canada? I've heard they're gonna do away with that. Otherwise, I've also heard that it can be easily avoided if you re-enter Canada via land border (apparently no quarantine requirement there), or if you re-enter through Alberta (apparently they're the only province that won't enforce quarantine requirements).

If this information isn't outdated, then all you gotta do is:
>A. Fly into the US, then drive into Canada
>B. Fly into Alberta, then fly/drive to your home province (if you don't already live in Alberta)
>C. Wait for the quarantine bullshit to be lifted

So I finished booking everything and it came out to $1850 (2 flights, rental car, 3-hotels). I had forgotten that because I'm a AAA member, I had some discount rates, and so I paid the same rate as I would have for a non-refundable fee but with the option to cancel. Also, with Hertz, I ended up paying $615 (added the insurance just in case). They clarified that I only needed to pay a daily fee of $6 for the toll roads, so that came out cheaper than I was fearing. Hopefully we are not forced to lockdown and then cancel everything, but fortunately I will be able to get my money back for worst case scenario. I ended up not going the Airbnb route since a few places I was interested in were bitchy about cancellation, and led me to just go the hotel route. Anyway, looking forward to seeing the famous fall colors of New England.

Going to Seattle at the end of the month. Been there once before but only for two days so I only did the big touristy stuff (Space Needle, Pike Place Market, etc). Going for a full week this time and looking for other interesting things to do. I plan on doing some driving over to Snoqualmie so I can see some of the locations they used when filming Twin Peaks but other than that I don't have anything specific in mind. Any recommendations for stuff to see would be appreciated; I tend to like nature-related things (botanical gardens, arboretums, etc) and I'm alright with museums but I'm not a big food person.

Looking to stay to Mexico while I wait for other countries to open up. FYI Mexico has virtually no restrictions on tourists - no test/vaccine required.

That said I've never been there so I'm unfamiliar. Can anyone help me with:

Transportation: How to get around? Is it easy to hail a taxi and not get scammed? Do we agree to the fare beforehand or are there meters in the cans?

Safety: I plan on staying in Yucatan. Ive heard this is one of the safest places in Mexico. Can anyone corroborate?

Food: Any recommendations/cautions? Coming from Texas there is Mexican food everywhere, but is there anything I should know?

Sightseeing/day or weekend trips: I'm not technically on vacation as I am a remote software engineer. As I said I plan on staying in Yucatan, so does anyone have any recommendations?

Op if you want a safe and chill place to go by american standards then Yucatan is the only option. Lots of cool ruins that are almost free to enter and cenotes are cool too.

Just moved 3 weeks ago and I'll be staying in the USA for about 4 months and I'm already struggling with my mobile data. My mobile company is a bitch and I'm getting monthly like 2gb of data instead of my regular 15gb. They told me that data doesn't work the same on roaming and some other bullshit.

So my dear American anons can you tell me which carrier will suit the best for me?

I want to buy a new SIM and I don't want to stick to a plan or something like that. I think that around 10/15gb per month will be more than enough.

How much is a good price for 10/15gb per month? I really don't care about calls or sms

Wich one has better reception? I don't need 5g atm

Phone is fully unlocked

Thanks

T-mobile has always been the cheapest for me, but I pay for a family plan and also use a military discount.

If you know some Americans, you can maybe even ask if you can pay to be added to their family plan.

No idea if the solo plan is worth it.
>>
>>2071767
P.S. T-mobile works best in cities. I heard reception is no so great in rural areas.

If you want the best reception, usually Verizon is the one, but they some weirdo technology that won't work with a SIM based phone. Also, they're the most expensive.

This has got to be the most boring city to ever plague the East coast.

Getting stuck in the very middle seat between two fat fucks on a 15 hour flight to europe.

The Russian guy at the moscow airport really hooked me up on the way back though so kind of made up for it. Window seat next to the emergency exit next to a single small babushka

Also the bathrooms on the plane were the worst I've seen in my life. To this day I wake up in cold sweats thinking about them

First time flying ever, Seattle to Amsterdam in economy. Sitting next to some fat black lady, her folds of fat spilling over into my seat.

1/3 of the way into the flight a woman screams from the back, "OH MY GOD, HE'S HAVING A HEART ATTACK." Random medical personal get called to the back. Have to land in Winnipeg or something, I don't remember where. Dude is carted out looks like he had a stroke or something. Sit on the ground for three hours because they don't have customs so we can't disembark. The airport was not designed to handle an A330, they have to manually weigh the aircraft while they refuel the tanks so they can get the correct load. Eventually takeoff and make it to Amsterdam.
