I went to an international school in Asia. I think I still speak with a bit of accent when I speak English (and no ones wants to sound Asian when they speak English). When I travel aboard, some people can even pinpoint the area I am from just by hearing my voice. How to speak with a neutral accent like the people in this video?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-KNPGCRmD8

Anyone here did birthright "Free 10 day trip to Israel?" My mother is pressuring me to go since I turn 27 by next summer and its the last chance I can do it.

My main worry is that I will be completely and utterly miserable due to sleep deprivation. In high school I went to some weekend or 3 day retreats with Jewish youth groups like USY and BBYO, and barely got any sleep because of people fucking around in the room all night long. The result being in zombie mode super tired for most of the trip and couldn't handle it. And if its a fast paced traveling trip...

A jewish mother pressuring her son?

Birthright measures the intermarriage rate of jews who take the trip, and jews who don't. The more likely you are to marry a jew after is how they measure success.

From what you have posted, and what I've heard about birthright, you wont like it. I think it's usually two bed hotel rooms, so maybe you could get lucky and have a quiet room mate. The average age is younger, and the guides encourage people to have fun and there's quite a bit of drinking and sex.
I think I'd just stick to /r9k/ OP.

Traveling with a coworker there. She's been there before and this is my first time going - but when we went to Chicago, we had a lot of fun because I got to also show her some places I knew.

Does /trv/ know of any fun places to explore in Vancouver? We hit the entire spectrum: we love small dive bars with bad beer and we also enjoy fancier places to drink and dance. Thanks in advance, any advice is appreciated.

Take her to the Capliano suspension bridge during the day, it's even good in the rain
then go to the Narrow lounge on Main st
Wow, both places look amazing. Thank you!
How is the Capilano bridge, exactly? Is it a day trip? Something we can cover in a few hours? We'll most likely be busy until end of day, possibly one of the days we'll be able to go out midday for some traveling. Narrow Lounge looks like exactly the kind of stuff she loves.
I got you homes.

Capilano Suspension Bridge: A very thin bridge that goes across a river way down below. A couple of hours, maybe 2-3, should do it. Bring your camera.

In Vancouver, I'd recomend:
-Any art gallery: They're pretty common and pretty good.
-Vancouver Aquarium: Our local aquarium, and it's very pretty. Not much to say, apart from go there to see our sea life.
-Vancouver Port: Man, anything on the waterfront is really cool. Just looking over it is nice. Find a bench...

I have a little company in Italy that makes me earn around €3000 - €4000 per month. It's an eCommerce and it's completely outsource (I can work from my computer, I just need Internet).

I would like to go in place like the one in the pic.
Consider the €100/day before tax (so, if the Income tax in the country is 30% it would be €70/day).

Hello /trv/, I am from Texas and plan to travel up to Alaska by vehicle this March, so I have a very long road trip ahead of me and seek tips from people who have traveled similarly, particularly through Canada to reach the frozen state.

The issue is, I have never been on a road trip this long, nor have I ever crossed the border to Canada (although I have read I don't need anything special besides proper identification). The farthest I have traveled is up to Wyoming, and had no problems there. The difference, however, is that I slept at hotels every night for that...

I haven't done what you're planning on yet, but I'm going to at some point.

I suggest driving to a national park near you, parking, and sleeping in your car overnight for one night. It will give you a good idea of what you need and won't need.

Good luck.

make sure you have good car!!! tires and wind shield wipers.

you should pre book a hostel in vancouver, spend a night in the city, buy some weed.

once in BC get some tim hortons coffee and a toasted bagel with cream cheese.

I have antianxiety medication in case I'm super uncomfortable. However,
-plan your time
-have loads to occupy yourself
I do books, knitting, movies, rest, snack time... I watch a movie, then knit, etc to keep myself focused on tasks.

I also talk myself through it--relax, it's ok, breathe, etc. Find a phrase that helps.

Good luck!
board in a tired state (have an alarm clock so you only sleep 5-6 hours that day or something).
Then, order rum & coke.

Works like a charm.
Have a playlist of your utmost favourite songs
Take two books (you'll get agitated with one and go to the other)
Blanket, keep you warm/get cold if you want
Helps talking to someone as you take off and land

Never been, but if you are there around Easter, check out the amazing giant kites...
I had never heard of the kites, before. Thanks, anon. But after looking up the celebration it's actually around Day of the Dead, which is in November; it's not around Easter.

I want to visit the mountain gorillas in either Rwanda or Uganda sometime in the future when I can afford it and preferably before they are all extinct.
But first, I wanna hear from someone who has done it. How was your experience? Where did you do it? How much did it cost? and so on.

It seems expensive as hell and I don't know what place is the best.
Bonus points for other activities you can do in these two countries.

No experience with it but have you considered the Virunga National Park in Congo? Apparently getting there from Uganda shouldn't be very difficult anymore and I'm pretty sure the park is way more spectacular than the areas on the other two countries
yeah, actually Virunga, Bwindi (Uganda) and Parc des Volcans (Rwanda) are the places I would consider visiting for the gorillas. So I'll add Congo to the question.
Still looking for your father, OP?
