 Where are you going? For how long?

Tips? Pack light, travel slow.

Vagabonding by Rolf Potts

If you´re travelling through Europe, consider Interrail (trains) www.interrailnet.com/

Also you can try Hitchhiking. Haven´t tried that but heard a lot of positive thing on it.

Ask yourself what´s the no. 1 purpose of your travel?

Get out of your comfort zone? Then go from city to city every 2-3 days and go out every night.

Know more about the local culture? Then stay there for at least 2 weeks (1 month would be better)


BTW: Best way to travel is SOLO. So much personal growth. Better social skills. Confidence. Courage.

Tip: Also make sure that you sleep 8 hours a day, eat enough, rest of some days, take it easy with sightseeing if you are going out everynight.

On my 19 day trip i had lack of sleep, lack of food, quite a lot of sight seeing, going out everynight...when i came back i felt really burned out.

Have fun! Can´t wait for my next trip.

I'll add another recommendation for Life Nomadic e-book at tynan.com.  I'm not quite as minimalist as he is (actually tried his way on one trip and didn't like it) but I've managed to travel around Europe x 2 months with only a carry-on size rolling suitcase and a small backpack.

Search Roosh V forum, Naughty Nomad, and on here for city-specific pickup info.

-Spend a decent amount of time in places.  Some people like to rush through but... I find at least 5 days is about minimum for a cool city (although some are shit and just worth skipping).  It takes 1-3 days just to orient yourself, get the lay of the land and nightlife, etc.   If you're in a new city every day or two you never really get "into" the place enough. e.g. I spent 2 weeks just in Tokyo and 2.5 in Seoul - being a tourist every day, out every night, and still could have happily stayed longer in each.

-The longer you spend in a country the more immersed you get and the more you get out of it.  Great for exotic or unfamiliar places.  I spent 5 weeks in Thailand, 5 weeks in Australia - that sort of time period you really absorb a place and the vibe of it's people vs just "seeing the sights".

-Come back to places you like.  e.g. in Australia I hit Sydney first, went all up and down the coast, then came back to Sydney.  The 2nd time there was IMMENSE... it's like still new and novel, but you hit the ground running full steam as you are fully oriented.  Did the same with Bangkok in Thailand.  Same thing with clubs actually... the best nights are always your 2nd or 3rd night in a club.

Where are you planning to go?
