Alright. Just a quick question. I'm going to be traveling to Germany next year to live there for 3 months. What should I expect? The furthest I've traveled is from central Alberta to Victoria, BC. Pic semi related, I'm Canadian

My gf and I are going to Barcelona in may. We'll be landing to the Girona Airport at about 10.30 pm, and then we will reach the citycentre by bus and finally go to the hotel by taxi. I have a couple of questions here: will we surely find a bus to the centre at that time? Is it safe? Are taxies expensive there? Are we going to be screwed over by a taxi driver? (where I live taxi drivers are quite dishonests with foreginers) Any general tip?

Hey /trv, I want to discuss means of funding travel, and alternative travel methods. Recently I have enrolled in a course run by a company know as Trekforce. Trekforce and companies like it provide guided expeditions to various places around the world while also offering chances at conservation work. They also provide an expedition leadership training course, which is what I am enrolled in. The course is 4 months long, 3 1/2 of which are spent in Belize, a South American country bordering Guatemala, and the other 2 weeks are spent in Wales. The course provides you with the credentials to work for various expedition companies. Your travel expenses are paid for, plus you receive pay for the expeditions themselves. This program caught my eye when looking for ways to fund my travel while on the road. I was always drawn to the adventure aspect that it offers so I immediately looked into it and now, after a few months of comparing my options, research, and hard thinking, I decided to go for it. Now I am enrolled to leave in January of 2015. Basically, I just want to hear some thoughts, opinions, and any experiences anyone has had with this or anything similar. I also want to hear about alternative methods of travel and ways to fund your travel perpetually. Here is the link to the Trekforce website if any on you are interested. http://www.trekforce.org.uk/

Remote, isolated places

Remote, isolated places 28 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Okay, /trv/, I've been couch travelling for so long, Google Earth and forums. But now I have a shitty job that gives me some money to save up, and I want to take at least one big trip. Thing is, I don't want to see the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben. I want to go somewhere where I can feel absolutely alone, small, like an actual explorer. I have a few ideas (some of them over my spending limit) but I need your suggestions. >hiking in Greenland The land there is all communal, so you can hike anywhere you want. >trek to Lo Manthang Small village that used to be a thriving feudal government. It became very desolate after trade in salt was cut off when Tibet was invaded. Now the area is a culturally protected area, takes a couple days to get there by foot. My last option, apart from your suggestions >drive up to Canada along the Dempster Highway I'll strap a kayak on the roof, and all the money I'd need is for gas. This goes right up to the northern coast, becomes very rural, hundreds of kilometers between towns. (Pic semi-related, Salar de Uyuni. I want to feel like this, not pose next to the leaning tower with a fanny pack on.)

Anyone here know any good neighborhoods/historical districts here in North America that still have that late 19th/early 20th century architectural look of Columbia from Bioshock Infinite (other than of course "Main street USA" in the Disney theme parks)

Hey /trv/, I like dogs, and am willing to travel the world with one. What breed of dog would be the best to travel the world with you? This includes backpacking, hiking, adaptability to climate, defense, and well around people.

Do you obey these signs when you encounter them in your travels? You see these all over Japan. In public, outdoor areas, even some sidewalks. I just ignored them and went ahead and photographed anything that caught my fancy. If you don't want your Buddha statues and shinto shrines photographed, it's not my fault they're right on the sidewalk.

I have an opportunity to go to Ukraine for 3 months. I was born there, and speak fluent Russian, but I haven't been there in over 10 years, and so I am worried it will be awkward. If I go, I would be staying in Odessa. But I'm sort of scared to leave the U.S., and not too sure if it's safe for an american. Is it worth going? I have a bad feeling about it, but maybe it's because I've lived in the same place for the last couple of years. I would be staying at my dad's house. What can I do over there? 3 months is a long time.

Africa 49 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So, I've seen this posted around a lot, and I know most people are saying they've done it, and haven't. I'm considering doing something like this (pic related). So my question is, how different is it to backpack through these areas of Africa, then say Europe, aside form the obvious. I'll be looking at hitchhiking, buses, hostels, possible couchsurfing. How well do the more western style of traveling carry over to somewhere like Africa. I'm not implying Africa isn't a well rounded, up and coming, technology savvy country, because I know alot of parts are just as modern as any other major cities. I just want to know culture differences, whether someone who has traveled Europe, would find something like this ALOT harder. >tl,dr >23yo white British backpacker wants to travel Africa, am I simplifying how easy it could be?
