Hey /trv/, So I'm going to Mazatlan at the end of April with a couple buddies (got a pretty excellent deal at the Riu Emerald Bay). Any recommendations for must see destinations while I'm there and general advice on the Mazatlan area? We are all in our twenties so I was hoping you guys could recommend some bars/clubs as well.

Hey guys. Simple question. I am 23, British, have £4000 in savings and am about to quit my dead-end data entry job to go travelling. What's my gameplan? I have no idea where to go or what to do.


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?

Mongol Rally & Rickshaw Run

Mongol Rally & Rickshaw... 25 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Have any of you guys done the Mongon Rally or the Rickshaw Run? All information about them can be found here: Mongol Rally - One I am leaning towards the most. There "Mongol Charity Rally" charges less than half as much to do it but I don't think it will be as much of an experience as they allow all kinds of road vehicles (the adventurists one only allows vehicles with a 1 litre engine or less) and don't host parties at the beginning middle and end (also doesn't provide you with a gopro camera to film the Journey). Info: http://mongolia.charityrallies.org/mr_vs_mcr http://www.theadventurists.com/mongol-rally/#whats-the-mongol-rally http://mongolia.charityrallies.org/guide-to-mongolia-charity-rally/page3 The Rickshaw Run - My friend is doing this with some friends he met at uni next year, he said if they get two vehicles sorted i'd be able to go (on account of other people wanting to go too) but there's no room at the moment for just the one vehicle. Info: http://www.theadventurists.com/rickshaw-run Just to be clear there is no set route for either of these. Both of these would set me back a good few thousand pounds and I want to get my moneys worth. The rickshaw run lasts about two weeks and the Mongol Rally lasts around 30 days. I think I would find the rally more of a true adventure but it's just the preperation and money that is key. If any of you guys have done anything like this please share tips and things I need to bring and how to go about fundraising (team needs to raise £1000 for charity at least). >tl;dr thinking about doing pic related in a 1 litre car with 4 friends, what should I do/take and how do I go about fundraising Route is subject to change and will most likely be canged in future Thanks alot /trv/!

So really.. The /TRV/ board isn't really for travellers, it's just so people can dream of their would-be itinerary and ask what people think of them. Pisses me off, where are the threads for actual travellers? If you're travelling at the moment, let us know since when you've been travelling, what your nationality is, what route you've taken so far, why you're travelling in the first place and about some of your experiences. I've been travelling since October last year, left the Netherlands by hitch-hiking. Travelled through Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Greece and I'm now in Turkey. I'm of Dutch nationality, 25 years of age. I'm travelling because I believe living in one place for your entire life makes you short-sighted, thus I want to be able to see things from different perspectives. Also, I needed the challenge to be able to feel alive. Had sex 5 times since I've left. Been aimed at with a gun twice, once got shot at. Explored old cities, beautiful nature, islands and an abandoned five-star hotel. Slept with Couch Surfing, WorkAway, hostels and people I've met on the way. Tried DMT and smoked a whole lot of weed. So where are you? Who are you? What are you doing? And why? Let's create a thread of actual travellers.

Hey /fit/ lately whenever I do exercise (cardio) I start getting a spotty,red rash all over my abdominal region my arms and legs and my hair, it's itchy as fuck and looks horrible, it usually goes away when I relax and stop doing exercise. I started taking anti-histamines which kinda help but i still get it, it's really weird because as a child I was active as fuck and never had any issues like this, I'd really like it to kindly fuck off. Does anyone else experience this? I'm guessing their is no cure but does anyone have any tips or advice. Thanks. pic not related


TRAINS 4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Best train routes in America thread. I have half of a summer to do whatever I want and I have never traveled by train before. I want to know the routes with the best views. I was considering the California Zephyr because I live close to Chicago (where the route starts) and it would give me a chance to visit San Francisco (I'll probably have to start a new thread SF related). You get to go through dusty small towns, through the Rockies above Denver, and all that. I've also heard a route that goes from Durango, CO to Silverton that reaches a couple thousand feet in elevation, I could only imagine the view. What are some other train routes with some amazing views, perhaps maybe on the eastern half of the Mississippi? I live near Chicago, which makes me fairly centrally located. Please please post pictures.

Alright guys, first time visiting this board, first time posting, so help me out a bit please. I'm 22 years old, from Southern California, been saving for about 3 years for a backpacking trip to Europe. Just bought my tickets and I'm leaving June 15th. Ill be spending 25 days there. I want to spread it out and do about a country every 3 days or so, (except Belgium because I could do that in about one). I am going with one friend, also 22 years old, and here is our plan, vaguely mapped out: Land in England, then off to France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, then the last few days floating around the Greek Islands. Anything you guys would recommend? Very excited for the trip, but 4chan always has blunt perspective that I usually miss. Any input helps! Thanks.

Is 36 euro (around $50) enough for food and attractions per person per day with student cards in Western Europe? We plan to avoid eating out and get cheap stuff, perhaps drink a little but not much on an evening. I know it'll be tight but is it doable? Are there any places on our itinerary where we can save? Route is Amsterdam Bruges Paris Munich Salzberg Innsbruck Venice Florence Rome Naples

Trekking Americas National Parks

Trekking Americas National... 4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
So I'm going to America for just over a month in August, flying into LA. I'm not too bothered about staying in the cities but I really want to see the countryside. The idea is to take a bus to a campsite in a national park and walk to another campsite each day for like a week. I'm pretty fit so I'm not worried about my ability to walk long distances but I don't know if its possible to reach a campsite each night or if what I'm thinking of is safe. If anyone has any recommendations of trails or National parks in the south west I'd appreciate hearing them.

Hey /trv/, I have a bit of a question to ask. I've been considering moving to Japan from the U.S. in a year or two, and I'm well on my way to learning the language, looking at place to live, etc. The thing is, no matter how much lookup I do on the culture, more of my friends tell me that, the more research I do, the more confused I'll be when I get there. So I guess the question is this; what am I getting myself into exactly, and can anyone tell me their story of moving there themselves? tl;dr version: I'm moving to Japan soon how do I prepare myself?
