    Never leave your pack alone, not even for a minute!

    Im at the security office now to see if they can do anything about it (of course they’re not) and a couple just came it and are reporting about their luggage being stolen. There’s lots of thieves around Barcelona, be careful if you come out here.

    Never leave your pack alone, not even for a minute!

    I’m at the airport in Barcelona and I just got my pack stolen. I made a poor decision and went to the bathroom for about 5-7minutes and left my pack under a chair, when I came back my shit was gone. I was sitting right in front of a camera, and I foolishly thought it might be safe. Don’t make...

    Hey Matt, is there any chance you could update the search engine so that it displays the search results in chronological order? Currently if you search a word(s) the results are all mixed up with current and old posts, which makes word searching tedious. Thanks for all your hard work!

    Went to spain again. Here's what happened

    That's so fucking cool! Reading stories like this really makes my day:). I'm planning on coming to Spain soon, how common is it to find people who understand English amongst the radical squatta crowd there? I'm studying spanish now but I can barely string a sentence together::sour:: .

    Where are some places to sleep inside during the day? ( for the winter time)

    Try college campuses and their libraries. I used to go to local ones on the regular when I needed to sleep and I never got bothered by anyone. Some public city libraries have no sleeping policies and will kick you out if they catch you so be careful.

    First post; guns y/n

    As another poster stated, I would only recommend carrying one if you have valuable stuff on you or lots of money that you don't want stolen, or if you're living in a really rough violent area. And if you do decide to go with one, it's best to keep quiet about it and only bring it out when your...

    Eugene

    The Whitaker district used to be the stomping grounds for anarchists and radicals. I haven’t been there in a while so I don’t know if that is still the case, but maybe try there... and be careful about sleeping under bridges there, i ran into lots of sketchy tweakers last time.

    Insulating/heating a squat

    Yo! Yeah tape up any areas where air can seep through, and totally hit all the windows with plastic. If you have some sort of cloths then put them against the bottom crack of the doors to prevent drift from coming in from outside. If you can find some insulation like this then use it to sleep...

    How to get over a broken heart.

    I don’t think there is an easy way to get over a borken heart or being abandoned or betrayed. You have to carry on with your life, and eventually you will start to forget about them and the pain they caused. One of the worst things you can do is try to numb yourself with drugs and boozs...

    The Anxiety of Being Mexican American

    In addition to all laws being arbitrary, they are also reactionary, bureaucratic, selectively enforced and made by those in power to subjugate those who aren't. Fuck all laws, from the US to timbuctoo!

    Newbie Fresh B-)

    One thing I recommend if you're going to backpack it: load up everything you think you need in your pack then walk around away from "home" with your pack on for at least 4-5 hours (maybe for 2-3 days). You'll know everything you'll need to take after that.
