Maine, Maine, Maine!

Maine, Maine, Maine!

Travel
Hi everyone, I'm new to reddit, but need some advice. My husband and I are looking to stay on the Maine coast for our babymoon the beginning of April. We are looking for a quaint stay where there are walkable shops and restaurants, but also scenery. I want to wake up and see the water outside my window. We enjoy walking, hiking, and being outdoors, but it'll need to be pretty flat since I'll be pregnant. We've been looking at bar harbor/Arcadia and Camden/Ogunquit areas. Any advice or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! submitted by /u/cheaplychadwells [link] [comments]
Price comparison World VS Serbia

Price comparison World VS Serbia

Travel
Hello everyone, my name is Leo and I am from Serbia. I want to make a video comparing prices in my country vs prices in the world. Since Serbia has low GDP and low living standards, as well as average salary(400 - 500 $ Netto), prices here are significantly lower than western standards. I have seen a lot of digital nomads coming to Serbia because mostly two things: Really good life in Serbia with even average western salary With all of this situation, Serbia is still open for tourists, for most countries you don't need a visa and I think you can stay here 90 days ( I will check if someone needs this information ) So I need your help to make this video. Comment here prices that you are interested in from Serbia and it would be nice if you tell me the price in your country(image or web...
Out of state travel to CA, question about hotels

Out of state travel to CA, question about hotels

Travel
I am currently in visiting home and working remote, but work is based in SoCal and I used to live there (my lease ended and I didn’t sign a new one or move). All of my stuff is in storage in CA. That being said, I need to travel to CA and take my citizenship test that has been scheduled. I booked flights, but I need to stay at a hotel overnight. With the new stay at home order, I have a question about how hotels are handling reservations. I booked 1 night at a Marriott, I called and asked if they are canceling reservations and they said no. Has anyone stayed at a Marriott recently? Do they require you to prove that you’re out of state or prove that you are an essential worker or sign any paperwork? I know that I shouldn’t be traveling, but I really need my citizenship for my job and now wi...
Heya! Campervan or train across Europe?

Heya! Campervan or train across Europe?

Travel
My partner and purchased tickets to fly to Copenhagen 0ct 19- Nov 4, arriving in Copenhagen on the 20 in the morning. We're both from rural Western US and I thought it would more romantic and fun to rent a camper. That and I'm low level freaked out about missing public transportation. I've read posts on here about riding the train through Europe. Is it easy? What about luggage? Would we be able to find a cheap hotel when we wanted? What is camping like in Europe? We were hoping to spend most of our time in Germany, Switzerland, France, and Italy. Is that too much? Should I just take a chill pill? (It's both of first time to Europe, both of us early 30s) submitted by /u/stacilou88 [link] [comments]
Company owned vs franchise hotel

Company owned vs franchise hotel

Travel
Is there a way to tell if a hotel is company-owned or a franchise hotel that uses the company’s brand? I’m finding that the customer service at franchised hotels tends to be lacking. Is there a list somewhere that can tell you this? It would be best to know this prior to booking. submitted by /u/ConstantlyLearning57 [link] [comments]
traveling across central america via bus (return ticket?)

traveling across central america via bus (return ticket?)

Travel
Hello all! so me and a friend are trying to take a trip through central america next year and we are going to use buses as our mode of transportation. We are going to be working on different farms through the WWOOFing program. We will essentially be farm hopping, and want to explore multiple countries. We are from the United States. I was wondering if it is even possible to even travel through the different countries in central america via bus without having a "return ticket" back? I keep on reading things online that at customs/border control they are going to ask us for a "return ticket" and won't grant us access to countries without a return ticket. Is there any way around this or is our plan unrealistic? submitted by /u/justinmurray1994 [link...
A year in Ireland.

A year in Ireland.

Travel
I'm considering a year in Ireland, starting maybe in Summer of 2021. Likely Dublin, I'm a city guy. I'm a Black American and honestly I'm just not up for a lot of shenanigans around my race, it's been a tough..... life. lol Any black travelers with experience in Ireland? I've heard some horror stories about their views and behavior around race, I've also heard it's lovely. I'd love some input from black folks that have been there. Also, if you aren't Black, but know it well, I'm interested in what you've seen or felt there, as well. ​ Thanks, submitted by /u/Okpspades [link] [comments]
Entry through NY state requires quarantine?

Entry through NY state requires quarantine?

Travel
My apologies if this is the wrong sub for this kind of question. I want to join my friends in CO in a few months for a ski trip. Will most likely enter the US through NY. Now, I know there is no real enforcement of the NY state quarantine upon arrival. But since I'm looking to board a flight to CO right after, will this be an issue? Will I actually have to wait out the mandatory quarantine before I can board a flight to Colorado from NY? ​ Not US citizen. submitted by /u/EnergizedFree [link] [comments]
