I don't think they have a "winter," but just this season that's not as hot as usual but more rain so there's less humidity? As such, outdoor activities aren't so great. But you could still enjoy the market and other things. Some people do the whole hiking thing which is unbearable during monsoon season.

Going to be headed to Portland, Oregon next month with friend. Anticipate spending some of the time outside/wandering around until we get set up with jobs. Was looking for something like in picture but for $30 or less. Also, any tips regarding traveling and temporarily living on the streets welcomed. Can't really find anything online that isn't just a plain canvas duffel bag for cheap.

Sort of off topic, but just want to warn you that you and your friend will be one of a few thousand homeless already looking for a job. It's not an easy city to find work, because it's a prime destination for people who are trying to do exactly what you're doing. It's a great city with a lot to do, but come with some emergency money so you don't get into serious trouble.

Which countries are not safe [for pussy white niggas like u]? Please add to this because I want to go to Latin American countries and Africa but I'm too lazy to research each individual nation's entire history and societal structure. I just want to avoid getting killed by stinky ISIS faggots, Mexican cartels, and whatever other African fucks besides ISIS East are out there.

What's the appeal of travelling for you? What do you get out of it personally?

>>1054466

I've always wanted to travel and see new places. It's fun, eye-opening, and lets you discover new music, foods, and friends that you wouldn't have otherwise.

In regards to what it's done for me, well... traveling has helped me build my confidence immensely. Before I took my first trip, I was a socially awkward virgin who couldn't string together more than a few sentences or talk to a woman unless I was blackout drunk. I was always afraid of getting judged, couldn't converse with strangers, had no hobbies, and was an all-around autist who did little more than sit home and play video games all day.

Now I've slept with about twenty women, have had a few long-term relationships, and feel comfortable in my own shoes - which is probably one of the best outcomes I could have gotten from traveling. I know myself better, know what I enjoy better, and think I've become an all-around better person.

I hope I don't sound to cliche, but whatever. Traveling really did help me build myself up and gave me a lot of cool stories and friends and things to look forward to.

It's a hobby, not much more I don't try to interpret too much into it or think it' something greater than that. I also like photography so taking pictures in other places is also a part of it

I was a late bloomer.. didn't really enjoy travelling until i hit 30.

Can anyone from expereince tell me how warm it is likely to be?

websites suggest a bit chilly and a jacket will be needed, but looking at historical temperaturres for last 2 years suggests low 20's celcius which is pretty nice for a northern european (shorts weather).

whats the truth?

thanks

From Vegas
Pants, light jacket.
If you're from a place with real winter seasons, you won't find Vegas to be nearly as bad. Now, if you're going outside of Vegas to the places like you've pictured, you're gonna want more. It's damn cold out near arizona and Utah. This is where you'd find places like your picture.

thanks, no will just be on strip day and night walking it i the day between resort and likely in the evening occasionally... are your suggestions daytime or night, or both, if it is low 20's in day we consider that nice summer day in n europe. is that likely?
>>
>>1053145
Prepare for 10C weather because that'll probably be more the average. It's below 20C already here, with some nights hitting the 35-40 Ferenheit mark. Not sure where that lands on the Celsius scale but it definitely gets pretty cold. If your winters average less that 10C you'll love the weather here.

Recommend nights on the strip as its definitely more lively. But day time trips are better because you'll have smaller crowds and less drunk tourists.

I found really cheap tickets (40 euro both way) from where I live (Warsaw) to Kutaisi in Georgia.

I'm thinking of jumping on the offer but I'm worried this might be a bad idea with all the ISIS shit going on. Has anyone from this board been there or to the surrounding countries? What the prices like? I'm sort of on a tight budget and the return flight would be a week after I arrive in Georgia.

Thanks!

Literally what? Just go you autist, it's a great place.

Also for double that price you can easily get a Wizzair flight to Kutaisi. Depending on the price of a Ruskie transit visa, it might actually turn out barely more expensive than the train.

Anyone else here travel largely to try new food? This is something I almost never see on /trv/, which is a shame.

Singapore is amazing for this, the food you get in hawker centres is a slightly sterilised version of street food from India, Malaysia etc., but with the added bonus that you're far less likely to get sick from it. Absolutely delicious, I'd recommend Singapore to anyone looking to try new food. If you have a local friend, even better - Singaporeans are fucking obsessed with food.

Never got it in China (got regular diarrhea, but not Travelers), but got Travelers Diarrhea in Burma. Fucking sucks, you have it coming out both ends for a few days, can't eat anything, and get weak (had difficulty carrying my bag by the end).

I lived in China for a year and never got it though, I'll say that.

Take precautions just in case. Try not to eat from really shitty places. Take some immodium with you, and those rehydration packs. There are also plenty of isotonic drinks in Asia to...

Hi all, I'm an Aussie looking to work in Canada sometime in 2016 and am trying to gather as much accurate info (and funds) as I can.
My problem is all the info I'm finding is pretty conflicting.
Some sources say to go with a company like Global Work & Travel Co, whereas some say they're a total scam and you're better off organising it yourself. Some sources also say applying for a working visa can take up to 4-5 years and you'll only be approved if you have savings of around $15,000 and a University Degree...
Whereas.. my friend works in...

That's not even possible unless you've got a PHD and 15-20 years of work experience....and even then, it's not likely.

In Canada, we only accept people from third world countries to live and work here, even for a short period of time.

Where are you traveling from?
What are your interests?

I spent 18 years there growing up. I know about most things other than the bar scene.

You can get in a good hostel like this for
http://www.hihostels.ca/westerncanada/168/HI-Vancouver_Jericho_Beach/index.hostel for
$30. I'd put at least another $30/day for doing stuff, food and travel. Could try couchsurfing.

It's a great setting for a city, but it isn't that great a city to live in.
If you're into restaurants, there's really good seafood, and a variety of ethnic food.

I've lived here my whole life. It sucks, go somewhere cool instead. Unless you're white then you'll have a good time.

What could you possibly need to know? You are on a cruise. They will take you places, they will feed you shit, or good food at an exorbitant price. You will get off the ship at ridiculously overpriced markets with the other 5000 captives. You will have to buy their boioze at 10x markup.

In conclusion, cruise companies make sure to give you the bare minimum to keep you alive while gently soaking and drying you in salt water and sunshine in order to squeeze every last dime from your credit limit.

A cruise is my idea of hell.

A level above the NCL and RC regular ship, and two level above the low tier Carnival experience. Ship and food perks aside, it simply means you'll be traveling with people an economic class above that riffraff (and possibly a little older too).
