As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.

I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.

Not him, but in my experience there’s only the rich tourist areas with big hotels and the dirt poor areas everywhere else. So unless you got some wealth to spend or you’re more interested in ecotourism there’s not much.

Sorry for the late reply. I guess I'll just bump this thread. Jamaica is the trip I remember better. I was only there for a few hours as part of a cruise. It was pouring rain and overcast, and the area we got off the cruise ship was surrounded by high fences, and outside of the fences were tons and tons of natives trying to sell various sorts of souvenirs to tourists. We were in Ocho Rios. All we really did was go to Dunn's River Falls. We climbed up the waterfall, and it was a miserable and freezing cold experience. I was no older than six or seven at the time. I have some memory of a guide yanking me to the side and I felt like I almost was thrown off the edge at one point. And when we were done with that, we ran into more natives trying to sell us cheap goods, and some Jamaican dude made some sneering remark at me like 'nice clothes' when I was wrapped up freezing in soaked clothes with a towel around my head and body.

I don't remember anything about the Bahamas other than photos in a photo album. I was like two years old.

Thanks for the answer. I looked into going to jamaica or the bahamas but it might be too expensive for me.

I live in Thailand but I would love to see Cambodia. I am fascinated by the history there. The ancient Hindu-Buddhist Khmer Empire right up to the infamous Khmer Rouge.

Time flies. Still collecting subdivisions by bicycle. I just returned from a trip and completed France, Italy, Switzerland and the European microstates. Hoping to finish Europe before I turn 40.

Nowadays I only travel to go hiking. For example this April I spent a week in Tuscany, Italy and just hiked through nature without doing any sightseeing. Sights don't really interest me much anymore.

Spent a good portion of my 20's wanting to travel and now that i'm 30 and all the coof and war shit is going on, i don't know if i ever will or should bother? Maybe i should just get a bike and ride around like eurowiz here but i'm really no that jazzed about my home country, Australia. Seems like most people in this thread aren't that into it either lol.

Pretty much how i feel about it. I've been on family holidays around here and theres not much variety. Also don't know if i'm falling for my own countries bullshit but i'd honestly be worried about some cunt running me down for fun on some remote road if i tried to bike it.

Compared to most other countries you would be miserable doing that and breaking laws. Remote areas where you wouldnt be caught are desolate, there's a reason all the population lives in a few patches along the coast. There are a vast number of countries that would be much better for that. E.g. in nordic countries there are lush forests everywhere full of bunnies and deer, where you are legally allowed to roam and camp.

That was one of the places i wanted to visit. They're still closed atm off due to the coof, right? I take it you've been? Anything you'd recommend if i ever get of my lazy ass and go one day?

 No.62496

I have been, and it was quite pleasant. Are you super into anime or just think it's a nice country? Cause if it's the former I would recommend just going to tokyo during comiket or something. If it's the latter I would highly recommend kyoto, it has a lot of the countries nicest castles and gardens. The countryside is also very nice, you can get off a train and walk ten minutes and be in the middle of a forest. The shrines are very nice and incredibly peaceful. Just be careful if you don't know japanese, the big cities you'll be fine cause everything has an english version and if someone can't understand you odds are there's someone nearby who can. The countryside however has next to no english speakers, so you need to either be quick with google translate or find a guide.

I think they're still closed for tourists, hope they open again soon.

Another map update, albeit a small one. Collected a bunch of subdivisions in Croatia and Bosnia.

The stretch I cycled from London to Portsmouth was kinda shitty. The Southwest is a lot nicer, particularly the River Avon area. Haven't been to Cornwall.
England in general is pretty alright actually, both for cycling and in terms of scenery. The North has a bunch of stunning national parks and areas of natural beauty, some of the most beautiful shit I've seen on my travels in Europe. Even Northern England's industrial heritage has a certain charm. Bongs tend to be good cunts.

Bongland is infinitely nicer than neighboring Ireland IMO which somehow has a way better reputation despite being lame as fuck for the most part.

Are you joking?
Russian is still the lingua franka in central asia many people speak besides their own language and you can get by using it.
