I currently have over $91000 in my savings and investments so I can give you an actual reply to this instead of just dreaming...

I'm going to spend the next 7 years of my life traveling almost full time but also mixing it with work in other countries. In the next year I'm planning on touring around North America on my motorbike before quitting my job. Afterwards doing a year of work-holiday jobs in either NZ or Australia and then traveling in that region for as long as I feel like it. Then move on to backpacking around East and South-East Asia for a year and then work for a year somewhere over there teaching English before spending another year traveling through South Asia and Iran. So at that point, 6-7 years from now I'll be in Europe where I plan on getting a masters degree and then who knows. I'll be in my 30s by then, I'll probably look for a more stable job and try to start a family, either in Europe or back here in Canada (dual citizen).

I think if you're trying to have a time like that you should talk to a concierge service, just google "vegas concierge". they can get you whatever you need for the right price. you can try to ask any cab driver or doorman too, no one gives a fuck the worst thing someone will say is "sorry bro don't know where to get that". Also, you don't need a bodyguard, that's for sure. If anything that would make you even more of a target. Try to stay low-key if possible. The Bellagio is where ballers stay BTW.

This is more /m/ but I guess there's some crossover.

I had a great time climbing this spiral bridge in Chongqing, China. It's kind of scary how high it is and how low the side-wall was. The whole climb I'm turning into the wall due to the turn of the spiral and a bit of fixation on the edge. I had to keep trying not to look at the drop.

I need recommendations for 'real traveler' backpacking locations/routes.

I currently find myself in Southeast Asia and while I espected there to be a lot of tourists I had no idea what it would actually be like. I thought Cancun was the byword for over traveled; every place here is orders of magnitude beyond that I'm currently in Cambodia and there's a fucking Hard Rock Cafe up the street. It's also insanely cheap here and everything is available so I'm enjoying it as a cheap luxurious vacation, but I'm not getting that sense of loneliness,...

Just go up to China. The language barrier itself is a challenge. Try not to stay in hostels - ask people where to find a 'lu gwan'. Its a cheap hotel, and they're everywhere. The transport is cheap and fast. If I was you I'd go deep into northern Yunnan and disappear into the temperate valleys comprising the foothills of the Himalayas. Although I've been to Yunnan before, the highest I went was Lijiang. Checking out the Burma/Tibet/Yunnan crossroads is on my itinerary.

4chan is NOT blocked in China but 99% of google is, including captcha which 4chan uses.
So...either use VPN or 4chan pass and you're fine. Heavy manual IPs in your hosts file will also work to a point but you have to update it sometimes and it doesn't *always* work.

Hey /trv/

General TEFL thread.

I'm yet another special snowflake teaching English overseas. At first I was focused on Korea for the financial opportunities but after doing some more research I decided on China. I got offered a contract for 10,000 RMB with a free apartment(or 3000 housing allowance) in Beijing. I'll be leaving February 25.

I will be training for two weeks before I actually start teaching but I was curious if anyone had some insight on how much money to bring with me to survive the first month. I get paid on the 10th of every month...

Is it a good idea to travel solo if you have severe social anxiety?

It might be a stupid question, but I just don't know what to do. I really want to do something with my life, you know, go out, explore the world, meet people. But that last part is what really terrifies me. I'm afraid that if I do end up going to some foreign country, I'll pretty much just sit inside and shitpost on 4chan all day, and in that case I don't know if there's any point in travelling in the first place, since I can sit inside much more comfortably at home.

Ask yourself that question mate. This is 4chan, nobody knows who you are.

Don't expect it to cure you. But another country might be a good place to 'train' yourself. When you fuck up a social situation you're sure you'll never meet those people again.

I wouldn't say I had severe social anxiety when I started but I did love having my comfort bubble that I never left. I worked the same job for 11 years, I never went out, never met new people then one day I decided to take a 3 week trip and throw caution to the wind. Best decision I've ever made.

How do you feel about overcharging foreigners officially?

The prime example is the difference between local/foreigner price to Taj Mahal. Something like 2/700 rupee.

Same crap happens in most of Africa.

I hate that. Spent 3 months in Egypt and did not enter any of these paid archeological sites exactly because bastards wanted to charge me 5× more than a local.

Gave in only once, at Vic Falls in Zimbabwe, and paid $40 instead of $10.

What do you think about starting to charge Africans and Indians 5× higher prices in Europe?

What? In pretty much every western country there's one entry price for tourist sites. There are discounts for students, kids, and retirees but all adults pay the same.

OP, you just have to accept it. Don't look at the prices for locals because it will just make you rage. I don't believe that you went to Egypt and didn't pay to enter anything because no one is stupid enough to travel to another continent only to not see anything.

I no longer feel bad about these price differences, at...

Can I get a work visa to work in Japan without a job offer? If I sent an application to the consulate here in America, is there a chance that I could get a work visa? I have a Bachelor's in Computer Science.
