>>1086842 >I'm living in an alcohol-free, repressive country, so I really want to party, be out in nature, and check out some cool-ass buildings, in that order.
Then why the hell are Moldova and Transnistria your first pick? Just curious, I think those areas are more for adventureous traveling than for having casual fun. Cities like Berlin, Prague or Amsterdam would be the standard pick for that.
I've been to Berlin before and the nightlife was really exclusive. No one I met during my week there got into any places worth raving about.
I've been to Amsterdam before, and not in the mood for doing any drugs -- I get really weird and paranoid when I smoke weed.
I've also seen many of the main places to see in Europe.
As for Moldova and Transnistria, I'd like to go there because I feel like those areas are going to change a LOT in the coming years, and it'll be my... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1086810 "Portlandia" does literally sum up Portland but it's not as obnoxious as the show makes it out to be. It's a fun little city, great nightlife, amazing food, a bit gentrified but not so gentrified/priced out as Seattle. Lots of festivals and community events. Real friendly people, I mean friendly to the point you'd think they were Canadians.
Only real downside is it is really liberal (only bad if you're a /pol/lack, again not super obnoxious about it), and the rain. It's constantly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
this is my first post on /trv/ guys and I just have a question. I'm 20 years old and I'm tired of my career here on Mexico (Graphic Design), so I wanna go Canada and work on something, this is my very resumed situation, I have like a 15K pesos, and a lot of energy, so I'm here for an advice, and also I wanna know if I need a Visa or something to live and work in Canada.
>>1086401 You pretty much need a visa to migrate to any country. Visas will only grant you a certain amount of time in other countries, and there are various requirements you must meet to gain citizenship. Canada is specific requires you to state how long you'll be staying there there. Its not as easy as the US is at the moment where you can just come over and we'll give you housing, funding, and license for just being an illegal.
My recommendation if you're set on Canada is to find a working program online... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1088739 I get that feeling before every trip I take. Right now I'm planning a 2 month trip myself, leaving in about a month and a half. I'm getting nervous just thinking about it. It happens every time.
Don't worry, the moment you get on that plane, or the moment you get off it on the other side of the world things will change. You'll realize you have to rely on yourself and there's no turning back and you'll be too pre-occupied with looking for transport, looking for food, looking for... Comment too long.

>>1088751 thanks for that im not only doing this to find out more about myself, but that is also one of my goals. what are the chances this trip would make me more confident. im a relatively attractive buy but lack confidence... will this help, or not so much?
Don't know if these threads are common or not...but I currently only have eighty dollars in my account. Is it plausible to live in my car in a city like Denver or Rapid City (biggest cities near me) and live okayish? Would I have enough time to survive on this amount of money until I get a job at McDonald's or Walmart to get more income?
Also stories of similar experience or just general poor travel advice.
>>1088589 Labour Ready is your friend. 70 bucks cash for a days work, and a ride to and from the job site.
Think home depot might have a labor agency in the States as well.
It'll be shitty and cold. Bring a tent and a good sleeping bag, the car seat will fuck up your back. Get a library card so you can use their computers. Truck stops have pay showers, truckers always have stacks of shower tickets. Offer to wash their truck for a shower ticket, or just bum one ( a ticket not the trucker), use those to shower....

If you're into sport you could check out the All Ireland Club Championship finals they're in Croke Park. Two games, one hurling and one football, good standard but the weather usually fucks up the hurling. You'll get a ticket for around 25 or 30 quid. Couldn't really recommend a pub coz I dont know, they're all gonna be full that day anyway. Hit Copper Faced Jacks for a real Irish nightclub feel. nothing modern about it, just a fuckin shitload of people hammered drunk.
My hair is very long and curly, frizzy and knots easily. I wash my hair every day or I'm not able to brush it, and I use hair spray/wax/mousse every day (which adds to the difficulty of brushing without showering, but even without it I get lots of knots). I'm planning to spend the next few years (hitch)hiking around, so I definitely won't be able to take care of my hair very often. I've been thinking about getting dreads, and while I don't dislike dreads, eventually I will want my natural hair back and then I'll have to cut it all off. So, any... Comment too long.

Not only will it be easier to manage, you can take a bar of soap to it and consider it done. Also you gotta think of safety, if you're gonna be tenting it and hitchhiking as a female, youve got to look tough, and nothing says "dont fuck with me" like a shaved head and tats.
I know that it isn't the most /fa/ choice, but looking like a tumblr dyke is way better than having a flea infested knot of nappy greasy messy hair on your head. And it will... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1088523 As the previous Anon said, shaving is really the best, though you could just cut shorter. Shaving is easier and cheaper to maintain as you can shave yourself. Cutting shorter may make you feel better in terms of feeling feminine but it's harder to keep it short by yourself (you'll likely have to go to a hair saloon or whatever you call it).
Do you regret traveling so much? Has traveling made you bad or physically sick?
Well, Im asking because something inside me is starting to regret the 6 years of hardcore traveling. Maybe I shouldnt been gone for so long. I mean, the time was great, i earned a lot of money as a teacher, translator, logistics manager. Hell, i even lived the hedonist dream: found an outdoor gym at some beach, bought a tent and started living on that beach. every morning i went fishing, had a breakfast of mussels and crabs, then had a workout and some swimming practice.
but, honestly,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're suffering from grass is greener syndrome, bro. All those bald dudes wish they'd been able to do what you've done. Does that mean you've had the better deal? Obviously not, but neither have they. You're absolutely right that it's going to work out okay, for the simple reason that you want it to, and as a traveler you're good at things like resourcefulness and self-determination. Can't get a mortgage to buy a house as nice as your bald friend's? Ten grand will get you an acre of land in coastal Maine, a few hundred bucks... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've got pretty much the opposite problem. I've blueballed myself after planning out a hardcore career of travel, instead getting engaged and starting a half-decent job. If we wanted to within a year we could get a loan and buy property in our neighborhood where we can be pretty much 100% certain it'll double its value within our lifetimes. We'd be dooming ourselves to 20 years of debt but we'd be able to travel in perpetua by the time we're 50. By that time of course the world will have been paved over.
sound more like goldilocks to me. you were too hot, they were too cold. need to find balance. i've been all over three continents, a lot of it with my amazing wife, and we have a 1 year old son who we're taking to japan next year, and we're also financially stable with some very tight friendships.
There is also plenty of American food. Burgers, cheap Diners, Chains and American food focused restaurants high and low. These are to be found in all neighborhoods. Thats what makes NYC what it is, it basically has everything.
Starting a USA thread. If it's a question about a city or state in the U.S, ask away here. Just wanting to make a general recommendation? Do it here. Want to talk about experiences or ideas? Do it here!
I'll start with New Orleans. I'm going to be going there on the 11th through the 14th of March. I have a place to stay and I will have a car. It'll be me and my girlfriend but we don't know anyone there. We don't have much planned just that we'll be getting pretty wasted a couple of those nights. We're interested in doing pretty much anything from exploring some abandoned places to some history museums. Would like to know of any good places to go. Cool things to do/see.
>>1086132 I've heard becoming an air courier nowadays is in the past. How did you get the job? Is the pay worth it? Does not having a stable life affect you in anyway? Looks like a job to do for a few years.
>>1086148 The industry has definitely shrunk over the past decade but there is still a market for people who want their goods accompanied during transit. In the past I've accompanied a rich client's pet dog on a flight to SFO. Another time I personally delivered a VERY expensive work of art to Milan. It's an insight into how the rich live.
>How did you get the job? Well, I'm essentially a freelancer. I advertise my services and clients get in contact with me. No disrespect but I can't stand the "gibsmedat" attitude these days where millennials expect others to provide their dream job for them. Create your own job.
>Is the pay worth it? I charge a premium as I offer a luxury service. So yes, I'm handsomely compensated.
>Does not having a stable life affect you in any way? I'm single and have always been a bit anti-social so this job suits me down to the ground. There is a lot of time spent in hotel rooms and waiting in airports. I'm intimately familiar with most major airports across the world from AUH to SIN to LHR and to be honest they begin to look the same after a while. Same sterile decor, same issues of magazines on the shelves, same over-priced coffee. I sometimes feel lonely for a partner when I'm out exploring a new city and see loved up couples walking hand in hand, but a girlfriend would tie me down and make my lifestyle almost impossible. I've no intentions of slowing down any time soon.
Will hop aboard this thread and also ask a question. I'm thinking about going to Moscow and take the Trans-Siberian from Moscow to Beijing in November/December. Is it a bad idea to do that traversing during winter?
If you're frequently changing cities, there's no point.
If the police stop you (they will unless you blend in well) you're just going to have to show them your passport and visa, and then pay a small bribe, like $2. ALWAYS CARRY CIGARETTES AND A LIGHTER FOR BRIBING. The system made sense during the cold war, but now it's just something that they keep to make money from.
>>1081689 Yes. There will be no daylight, and the few hours of it will be the same monotonous landscape for days
>>1081686 Depends on where you stay. Was told we only had to register if we were in a city for more than seven days, but some people would tell us it depending on the city. That said, most hostels/hotels will register you. In my experience, trying to register yourself is a fucking nightmare, one of my worst experiences in Russia.
>>1081689 Don't bother. Like the other guy said, it'll be dark most of the time. You're going to want to stop and see the cities... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1079016 Peking. Kek. Most people in the 21st century call it Beijing, you know?
If you want a chance to leave the airport, I don't recommend Beijing or Seoul as all the major airports are a bit of a commute from the city. Singapore is quite close (because Singapore) so even with a few hours, you could go out and come back.
crossposting this from /ck/ because I like /trv/s opinions sometimes
so I'm a culinary student, I'm doing pretty fucking great in my classes and I have top notch internship lined up this year. If all goes well I'll be in a solid position to go literally anywhere in the world next summer and I'm trying to get a jump on it. Right now I live in the Northeast United States and I could bounce from restaurant to hotel for the rest of my life if I wanted to, learning and experiencing plenty, but I'd like to use my vocation to travel and actually see...

>>1088152 You don't have to speak perfect French or Spanish to move to Europe for culinary experience. Start learning now, you have a year, that's enough to know enough Spanish to hold most conversations as it's a very easy language to learn.
The best suggestion I can give is to go to a country of which cuisine you will specialize in. If you're into French food move to France, if you're into Thai food move to Thailand. Getting visas will be the difficult part.
>>1088367 I get that. Go where my taste buds want the most. And that's great. But you have to realize I'm dick deep in this right now. Yeah, I'm technically trained classically french, and six months in rural france would do me great. But so would six months in Greece, or Sardinia, or Brazil, or Montreal. I've got a pretty good hold on world cuisine, but its all from an outsiders perspective. I'm here asking you guys because I feel like I'm missing something. If I go to Auckland will I learn how...

>>1088152 I'd vouch for Japan or Korea if you want to diversify. Spend a year or two in somewhere like Akita or Pusan... Getting good at real Japanese or Korean cuisine might add an interesting flair to whatever you've gotten good at in the North East. The trick is they really like to have people speaking the language when they hire, so you're really going to need to be a skilled chef if you want to land a good hotel job in East Asia.
