Travelling from the UK/Ireland to Australia and want to know a few things.

Travel
I'll try and keep the post short and easy to answer, if anyone thats travelled to Oz recently or lives there could tell me that would be great. 1- Am I able to travel and get into Australia with a working visa right now? If not, do you know when? 2- If able to, how much would you budget when travelling to Australia? 3- What's the best advice for someone travelling alone to the country? I have some more questions but any vague answer to those 3 would really help, thanks. submitted by /u/bigdirtyarse [link] [comments]

I just booked my very first solo trip out of the US. I am so excited.

Travel
I booked my first ever trip out of the continental US. I’m going on a guided tour group through GoAheadTours, and I’ll be visiting Venice, Florence, and Rome early next year. This is my first time traveling alone, period. I’m 27 (going to be 28 when the trip happens), and I’ve only ever been on family vacations inside the country. I don’t know what to expect, but I’m pretty proud of myself for committing to this trip, as I often put things like this in the “someday” pile. Any advice or suggestions would be great! Wish me luck. submitted by /u/InnocentPerv93 [link] [comments]
Why doesn’t Philly have a proper bus tour?

Why doesn’t Philly have a proper bus tour?

Travel
So, I'm looking visit Philadelphia and I wanted to go on a mini bus tour. I'm sorry, but I enjoy bus tours. They provide a great way to see the city and get insight. but there is only one bus tour company in the entire city: the Big Bus company. It seems kinda cool, but the problem with these double decker bus tours is that you only see a small part of the city and you don't get a vet in depth look. Every city I've visited has a mini bus tour company, with totes that last about 2-3 hours. Even smaller cities like Seattle, New Orleans, and salt lake city have multiple companies offering mini bus tours. I'm shocked that a city with as much history as Philadelphia has only one tour bus company. What gives? submitted by /u/crowbar_k [link] [comments]
Tonorrow I do the PCH from San Diego to seattle.

Tonorrow I do the PCH from San Diego to seattle.

Travel
Does anyone have any reccomendations of places to visit that are near the highway? Camping places, short hiking trails, nice scenery, rest areas or cool places to take photos and visit. Prferably something that will only take a few hours to explore since I only have 9 days to get to seattle and get back south. Also any military bases between LA and seattle? I'm military so I'd like to stop by and eat at the base so I can save a bit of money. submitted by /u/guerrerosaurio1 [link] [comments]
Best places to travel in the US in September 2021?

Best places to travel in the US in September 2021?

Travel
Idk if this is a good place to ask this. Nonetheless. My mom (44F) and her bf (60M) want to go on a family vacation with me (24F) during my week long fall break in later September 2021. Their initial idea had been going to Mexico to lay on the beach all day and maybe do an excursion or two but I have a sun allergy (yes, it's a thing and unless I completely cover myself in 50SPF, I get the itchiest rash to ever itch all over my arms and legs) and am not the biggest fan of laying on the beach for multiple days in a row so this isn't exactly appealing to me. Since the goal of this vacation is for me to get a change in scenery for mental health reasons, they agreed to change the destination if I find the new one. I am fully vaxxed but neither mom nor her bf are and they don't plan ...
Wineries/Vineyards in Naples, Italy

Wineries/Vineyards in Naples, Italy

Travel
Hello everyone, I am visiting Italy (restrictions pending) for the first time in Feb 2022 with my mum and was wondering if Naples was a good spot to visit wineries/vineyards? If you’ve done so yourself, how was your experience? We are not visiting the more rural region of Italy so I was hoping to make a winery work in Naples. Thank you in advance. submitted by /u/eudanuts [link] [comments]
US National Park Entry

US National Park Entry

Travel
Hi all, I'm looking to visit a few National Parks in the States starting at Zion. I'm planning to wake up early and get to the parks around 6am and wanted to get an Annual Pass since I'm planning on visitng a few: Zion, Bryce, Arches, Canyonlands and Grand Canyon. Does anyone know what to do if I want to buy on site at Zion but the Visitor Centre isn't open until 8am? Is the gate open 24 hour with an attendant on site? submitted by /u/midnightmunchiez [link] [comments]
I’ve lived abroad but my partner hasn’t. He’s nervous about long-term travel, how do I get him to take the leap?

I’ve lived abroad but my partner hasn’t. He’s nervous about long-term travel, how do I get him to take the leap?

Travel
My partner is interested in travel, but he's inexperienced and has a lot of worries, mainly about money. I traveled a lot before he and I started dating, but the past several years have been a little more focused on my career and getting myself financially stable. Now that I'm in a good place and restrictions are lifting, I want to start taking 3-6 month trips abroad. We've been together for several years, live together, have pets, and are planning on being together the rest of our lives. We have taken one international trip and tons of domestic trips together, but nothing longer than a couple weeks. He's definitely more shy than I am and less of a risk taker, and because of that I think we compliment each other well. But I really want him to join me in long-term travel, a...
Tell Me Where To Go

Tell Me Where To Go

Travel
I’m a 33 year old mixed race (Caucasian and Caribbean) Canadian female. I want to travel at the beginning of December this year solo. I want to feel as safe as possible (some concern surrounding travelling alone to very racist countries). I’ll have 2 weeks for the trip. I’ve asked a couple of people I know what they would suggest and they have suggested Portugal and Bali. I only speak English and would love to visit somewhere that would allow me to communicate with people, but it’s not a dealbreaker if not. It can sometimes just feel a bit alienating during solo travel when I struggle with communication. I love connecting with and learning from people. And am really adventurous and open to many different types of trips. I’d love to hear your destination suggestions! submitted by &#...
