I think I'm going to try to be a WWOOFer this summer in July for four weeks, anyone have experience with this organization?

My girlfriend's brother did it for 6 months in Taiwan and is coming back pretty soon, thinking of doing it as well for a month or whatever I can negotiate for.

Going to be in London briefly on April 16th, and the 20th (and in Bath to visit my gf in between). Things I want to do include finding a Nazir Mahzir cap and going to the Tate. Any better suggestions?

Summer Road Trip 2k15

Me and my group of friends have always wanted to do it and so things are starting to solidify a bit and planning has begun and I'd love some input from others who have done some traveling on the west coast. We're starting in Tucson (all 5 of us) and ending in Colorado Springs (dropping one of us off) then driving back to Tucson.

SO, without further ado, the rough travel spots guideline.

START:
Day 0: (on road)
Tucson -> San Diego (stay night)

Day 1: (San Diego)
-Beach day + Boardwalk

Day 2: (San Diego)
(we'll be in San Diego before the 4th of July when it ends for sure)
-Del Mar Fair

Day 3: (on road)
San Diego -> LA (stay night)

Day 4: (on road)
LA -> San Francisco
-China Town

Day 5: (San Francisco)
-4th of July in San Fran
-Golden Gate Bridge
-Fireworks

Day 6: (on road)
San Francisco -> Redwood Forest

Day 7: (Redwood Forest)
-Camp in Gold Bluff's Beach

Day 8: (on road)
-Redwood Forest -> Yosemite
(stopping by Crater Lake on the way)

Day 9: (Yosemite)
-Camping in a cabin in Yosemite (renting it)
-Hiking

Day 10: (on road)
Yosemite -> Grand Canyon

Day 11: (Grand Canyon)
-Grand Canyon hike (south rim)

Day 12: (on road)
Grand Canyon -> Zion national park (just stopping by for 2-3 hours)
Zion -> (spot between Zion and Colorado Springs)

Day 13: (on road)
(spot between Zion and Colorado Springs)-> Colorado Springs

Day 14: (Colorado Springs)
-Rocky Mountain camping

Day 15: (on road)
-Drop off friend in Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs -> Four Corners (spend night)

Day 16: (on road)
Four Corners -> Tucson

END

We're budgeting ourselves for roughly 5,000 miles to get from Tucson all the way around then back to Tucson. The exact amount was like 4,500 from place to place.

Anything super cool we'd be driving by possibly? Any advice?

We're taking my Jeep and a camper to sleep in wherever we stop if we don't have somewhere to sleep (as in, not a campground and or house of family member). We were debating on taking two cars for the 5 of us but I don't know if the extra $1,000 on gas will be worth it...

We're getting a pass all the national parks, I'm honestly super fucking excited.

Qualifications: Live in Utah, been camping since I was a zygote, growing up we spent anywhere from 14-45 nights camping each year.

Grand Canyon isn't bad by any means, but if I had to choose where to allot my time between that and Zion's, I'd go with Zion's every time. (not sure if you've been to either already). Grand Canyon either needs more time or just a couple hours to see. You can see so much of it just by pulling into a couple scenic pull-offs and visitor center type places.

With Zion's, once you're in the park there's a bunch of different hikes you can do. Angel's Landing is one of my favorites because the view up there is awesome, and in my opinion even better than looking into the Grand Canyon because at Zion's you kind of "earn" the view. That hike alone takes several hours and that's not including the time you'll want to spend at the top (it sort of plateaus and there's a little bit of exploring/angles/sights to see). Not to mention there's a river running through it you can cool off in.

Canyonlands, Goblin Valley, Bryce Canyon, Moab/Arches are all roughly in between Zions and Colorado, and I would recommend any of them as well. Let me know if you have any questions about these bits, or anything else in Utah since I've probably stayed there before.

Also, this might sound condescending, but you're probably at that age where sunscreen is still super lame and getting tan is super duper cool cuz the babes love it! (speaking from experience) If you won't carry around an umbrella

http://francistapon.com/Travels/Advice/ ... n-Umbrella

then at least get a wide brim hat and a ton of sunscreen that you'll reapply throughout the day. Skin cancer ain't nuthin ta fuck with! (My Dad just had a dime size hole gouged out of his nose to remove skin cancer and suddenly I'm hyper aware).

Also, options are limited coming back I assume, but everyone says Four Corners is super duper lame.

Re: 5 people in a jeep. Is it just a 5-seater jeep standard? Sounds like hell for that kind of distance. Suburban (or similar sized vehicle) with that kind of number is great, 2 in front seats, 2 in middle, 1 person can nap in the back and everyone still sprawls out.

Hey! Thanks for the awesome reply! I'll mark the places that you mentioned as possible stops along the way!

I will definitely be bringing an umbrella, a wide brim hat and sunscreen, I burn super easy.

I'm a little biased towards wanting to spend more time in Zion personally, I've been to the Grand Canyon multiple times but two people in our group of 5 both have never been and had no interest in Zion. I may send them some pictures and hopefully convince them otherwise before we head out this Summer. I had mentioned wanting to see the Arches along the way to Colorado so that's still a possibility, I'll keep what you mentioned noted and bring it up next time we meet.

With regards to the car, I wanted to take two cars because those long 10+ hr treks are going to be rough being shoulder to shoulder to someone having no breathing room.. Still something under debate so I'm glad to hear someone else thinks it'll be a bit cramped.

And yeah, the four corners is just a quick "get out and take a photo" thing because someone wanted to do it, I was kind of 'eh' on it because its just a touristy thing.

Thanks again for the response! I'll definitely let you know if I have any other questions or want some personal experience on other places!

do you know what kind of sights you want to see? i can mainly comment on the california stuff

san diego has several beaches and depending on the jizz and stuff you want to do you might want to select accordingly. idk what exactly you're looking for, there is a bunch of stuff that san diego can offer

the drive from sd to la is not ~that~ long (depending on what route you take, traffic, what part of la you end up in). if you have time to kill I'd recommend taking the 101 to la, you drive through encinitas. also beautiful views of the ocean along the way.

la also has a lot to offer. again I don't know what you're looking for, but hollywood is the main tourist thing? and santa monica pier/3rd st. if that's not your cup of tea, the eames house in the palisades has tours, watch the sun set and the stars from griffith observatory, walk along the venice pier, hang out around abbott kinney, la arts district crawl, little tokyo (with the og mochi ice cream shop), silverlake, west hollywood shopping, supreme (worth seeing the skate bowl if you ask they might let you see it, but obv not ride it), downtown w/ grand central market, ace hotel

idk I don't want to ramble on but if you want more info about the california stuff you can pm me. oh yeah before I forget on your way to gold bluff from sf you'll encounter muir woods which is very fun, and if you happen to take the 1 near fort bragg is glass beach

I've been to San Diego a couple of times but my girlfriend lived there when she was very young so she's somewhat in charge of organizing that bit. I know Pacific Beach, I have family in encinitas and I've been around there. But that was all 4-5 years ago and I was much younger and just kind of along for the ride.

We're definitely driving up the PCH when we're in California.

I'll look up all those things you mentioned. We have a whole day slotted for San Diego and a whole day for the Del Mar fair so we'll probably be able to check out quite a few places. I'll message you about food places as @missrowan suggested, I'll put together a thing with what you suggested and see what our group thinks of each.

Thanks for all this info guys! Greatly appreciated. Our friend group isn't super into fashion but me and my girlfriend definitely want to check out some fashion places while we're in CA so we may split up for a bit of the day to do that.

I'm getting hyped.

check out the leeum (samsung museum of art) near hangangjin station (line 6) and i guess the cdg flagship, which is next door. hongdae is probably the best nightlife area now, i'd just wander around and check out the bars and cafes.

the palaces are worth looking at, especially gyeongbokgung and the surrounding area, but i don't think you need to visit more than one or two. i haven't been to the new modern art museum (next to gyeongbokgung), but the old one was alright.

the galleria department stores in gangnam/apgujeong have a pretty good collection of stuff, but i don't know that it's better than anything you'd find elsewhere.

when i lived in korea our rule of thumb with restaurants was generally if it's crowded, it's probably worth checking out.

@JewTurk

I would skip Hollywood; it's crappy and not a whole lot to see. It's a huge, disappointing tourist trap with lots of people hassling you. Go there for a few minutes if you must see the Chinese theater but don't stay long. But other parts of Hollywood are worth checking out as far as the food/bar scene goes (outside of the blvd.).

Where in LA are you looking to go to and how long? I can give some recommendations or you can PM me; I live in the area and would be glad to point out some good stuff. @yung_lunchables has some great suggestions too.

And Yosemite is awesome. It's my favorite place. Lots to see and do! Plus you're going at a time when it won't be crowded. Are you hiking Half Dome?

I have just over 2 hours or so in Paris to kill, and i'm only having to walk between Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est. I'll have some light luggage but nothing serious (no suitcases or anything). What should i do? I know nothing about Paris. Self important cafes and cultural sights welcome

I have extremely stuff bookmarked for pdx, I'll just pose all the links and you can sift thru



food
Spoiler:


shopping



obviously did not visit everything when i was there for 3 days in the summer so I'll talk about the stuff I did

food:

Spoiler:
Go to a stumptown and have coldbrew, cuz lots of places everywhere use their beans but you can only get that there really (and its proper good)

I had a coffee at heart roasters too and it was excellent

would have tried more places but caffeine fucks me up

Maurice is cute, good place for a snack but not like a proper meal or anything

sizzle pie is dece, didn't stand out that much but it wasnt bad either

salt and straw is amazing. go there. I went 2 times

voodoo donuts are obviously overrated but go late at night and its not so busy. not that they're bad but its just not that special. still worth going though, just don't wait an hour or something dumb

olympic provivions is excellent. I had charcuterie and it was well worth it. I went to the southeast one and its in a still semi industrial area and cool inside. do that.

I didn't have any beer while i was there because american alcohol laws are repressive but I've had deschutes and burnside stuff up here in the free land and will likely hit up their tasting rooms when i'm back, along with a few of the rest of the 7000 or so breweries.


shopping:

Spoiler:
table of contents is the best store in portland, pretty unequivocally

stand up comedy is good too, neat books

machus is clothing for people who wear leather sweatpants and sidezip tees

pretty much everything else is denimbro stuff so you may find it easy to skip a lot of it

danner/steven alan/self edge/some other stuff are all in the same building and like across the street from powells so you should probably do that

if you've never been to an aesop store i'd check that out.

I didnt go to snowpeak for some fucking reason but i wish i had


Should also mention that i rented a bike for an afternoon. can't remember the name of the LBS but it wasn't outrageously expensive, came with a lock and such. downtown/the surrounding areas are pretty flat, its a good biking city. lots of bikepaths too but riding in traffic is more fun anyway.

Do yall change how you dress at all when you travel? Depending on where I'm going I sometimes feel the need to dress "up" -- as in more presentable and more conventionally good-looking -- especially in places like Europe and major US cities. Going to Italy for 2 weeks in July and I'm entertaining the idea of a capsule wardrobe of stuff I wouldn't normally wear that often but could be fun in a foreign setting.

I'll be in Paris for a week this summer. Absolutely going to the Yohji flagship. Other than that though, I've no clue what I should be seeing. Does anybody with any familiarity with the city have any recommendations? Could be museums, restaurants, events, anything.

@blastoise

I'm actually gonna be in portland from july 18th - 24th ISH (approximate dates) so if we overlap lets hang out!! ramseames naile most of the recs but here are some of my personal favs after living there for 2 years

Spoiler:
DOWNTOWN you'll find good coffee, food carts, stumptown, and mostly overpriced sit-down places
- maurice (seconding this it's so good)
- good coffees: stumptown, courier, heart. courier is right next-door to maurice, how convenient! stumptown by the water-front is nicer because there's more room, couches, and cool art on the walls that changes every month! but the stumptown on 10th has a really nice bathroom... so you should probably go to both of them.
- vietnamese food cart on 10th and alder, buy a banh-mi but get there before 12 or they'll sell out. there's also a spielman's bagels food cart on this corner but it closes at 1:30 and isn't open on weekends iirc
- brunch box build your own breakfast sandwich, get the texas toast as buns option
- boxer ramen, next to stumptown and steven alan and self-edge, really good ramen imo, sides overrated just get the spicy miso YUM
- QUIN candy is in the same tunnel as boxer ramen, free samples, expensive stuff but VERY good
- grassa (italian) really close to frances may, the clothing store. cheap fast and good
- blue star donuts down the street from grassa, on the same block, way better than any donut alternatives in portland dont go to voodoo
- nong's khao man ghai is a must, also a foodcart that is i THINK on 11th and alder. they only serve nong's khao man ghai and it's great.
- living room theatre is fun because they play weird films and you can eat while you watch them. but if you're under 21 go before 7 or they wont let you in because portland SUCKS

NORTH of downtown is chinatown
- china-town is a shit-show full of people peeing on things (not joking) AVOID. although carol at the Lansu chinese gardens gives a MEAN tour.

SOUTH of downtown
- if you have a car take a pilgrimage to my favorite portland secret called Golden Touch Family Restaurant -- it and its staff are straight out of the 50s. you'll get eggs hashbrowns sausage toast and coffee for less than 10 bucks and wont finish your plate. dont waste your time waiting in line for 3 hours just to pay twice as much and get twice as little at any of the trendy portland brunch places

OTHER side of the river
- if you're a high rolla go to ava gene's, i haven't made it out there yet but it's considered some of the best food on the west coast or something.
- spielman's bagels - just go here. foodcart as mentioned downtown or OG location on division just a wee bit west of pok pok! get here before 12 and order the salt and herb or salt and pepper bagel. if you eat fish get the bagel and lox, MMMMM
- pok pok (thai) - basically the gastro-mecca of portland, there will be a wait of like 45 minutes but it's actually 15 so it's ok
- across the street DEFINITELY go to salt and straw and get lavender and olive oil. don't get anything else. well maybe get the strawberry with black pepper and balsamic vinegar, it's the 3rd best
- paa dee (more thai) - the less known aka no wait thai alternative. slightly north.
- other favorite bathrooms include a place called cheese and crack that if you go to PaaDee is down the road, AND they have really cool cheese plates + soft serve ice cream. but the BEST bathroom is at Rimsky-Korsakoffee house, which is a really cool dessert place open from 7pm-2am

sushi is not worth your time in portland. don't even try.

also i'm currently attempting to document the back-log of places i've eaten at in portland on my yelp so you can check that out too if you want, i'll hopefully have like 50 places written about by the time yall go http://iansfood.yelp.com/
