People who spend too much time on their appearance usually aren't able to have much fun.

I just make sure I don't make any faux pas in my attire. If I'm going to a religious site I make sure to wear long pants and a shirt, etc etc.

I dress casual even for work and I pretty much wear the same thing when I travel.

who does that?
As stupid as it sounds, when I'm traveling and staying in hostels I like to wear shirts with logos from places I've been to. It's a great conversation starter.

Hey /trv/,

What are your thoughts on travelling alone? I recently acquired about $50grand CAD, and want to drop $10-$15 on travelling Europe. I'm from Canada, and I have a sister who lives in London England.
I have no one to travel with, because my friends all have real jobs or school.

How did you acquire all that money? Sounds like a good idea anyway, but there are about five of these threads a week. Read around.

tldr: traveling is what you make of it. If you're lonely at home you'll probably be lonely on the road. There's added freedom, but no you won't have immediate companionship wherever you go. The general feedback is to choose your hostels wisely, be outgoing, and you'll come across people going where you are. Unless you're content to be very isolated, this...

I think this is where I should ask this.

I was wondering if there was a catalog or perhaps just some personal recommendations of unique fetish based resorts of some sort.

I've always wanted to perhaps go to a mildly kinky renaissance fair with a tavern where I can grope barmaids, or a "catholic school" full of "schoolgirls", or maybe even a "hospital" of sorts.

Surely there's got to be something like this out there. Not a brothel per se, just a themed adult experience.

Worked for the FBI for 7 years, quit to move to Japan with a load of savings, got a nice paying job, hated it, quit, ran out of money and had a financial situation back home that emptied my funds, apartment contract renewal was up at the same time, didn't have money to renew the lease nor for a plane ticket back home. Ended up sleeping in internet cafes until I had the money to return to the states.

That's the condensed version.

I've been reading through the Western vs Asian clubbing thread and keep seeing people say it helps if you're white to get girls in Asia. Is this true? If so, why? Wouldn't they want a local guy who's just as wealthy as a white guy (for poorer places), and if they end up with a white guy, won't their kids be ostracized?
71 replies and 4 images submitted. Click here to view.
If they are having kids, I'd hope they wouldn't make the children they are raising to feel that way, or think that there is actually any problem with that. As for the white people thing, generally speaking, ( you can Google the statistics ) people trust white people more. so that's probably maybe a thing.
because if you marry a chink, you're still a chink

but if you marry a murkan, you get to be a murkan and a chink

Also with a couple of exceptions asians want to be western. And there's a lot of asian girls who find western guys more attractive.
Plus, you're rich. And you can probably get them to move to Aus/Eng/US which would otherwise be out of reach.

Have you guys ever gone over an improper control? It happened to me last summer.

I forgot to put my keys in the metal detector, so it rang and then, they body-searched me.

When I came back home, they told me to put my stuff through the scanner but the other people hadn't to.

So I went over 2 police control, on my way to my destination and on my way back home while I was doing absolutely nothing illegal.

Delta has a TSA-precheck for a while now. If you are checked in far ahead and they do a little background check you get to skip a bit of the security random deep checking, to generalize the process.

A guy in my work has had is ass-cheek spread and inspected on 2 different occasions. He told me it happened when he was leaving Florence to come back home. Apparently he had been keeping weed in some small camera film container and emptied it before arriving at the airport but the sniffer dogs still picked up on it.

The guy doing the cavity search was a bit of a cunt and said something along the lines of "isn't this humiliating for you?" To which my collegue replied, "you're the one with your head up a strangers ass."

Makes me laugh.

Is it actually possible to get decent sleep on a plane? The few times I've been on a plane at night it seemed like an impossible task to stay asleep for more than 30 minutes at a time.

I've never had much luck getting sleep on flights. It's usually too cold and bumpy up in the sky for me to stay down for long. Buses and trains on the other hand - oh god, I literally can't stop myself from dozing off. One of my friends who came with me from Istanbul to Tbilisi on a 36-hour ride got angry because I slept almost the entire way.

Get ear plugs (ur just good phones with calm music) eyes mask (that ones that people use to sleep) and a blanket. You don't need anything more.

And I usually wear short sleeve and shorts while flying for confort.

There's a certain element of traveller who is so pretentious that they look down on people who use guides or visit landmarks.

These are typically the people who come back and have wasted months of their time away in travelling through the middle of nowhere , to hang out in the middle of nowhere.

There aren't really any hidden gems in the world anymore, so "going off the beaten track" usually means you end up in places that people don't go to for a reason...because they're shit.
Guidebooks are to be used as a reference, and not 'you must go there and there and do this'.
But I don't think anyone actually does that (save for japanese).
The good point in them is in the historical/cultural explanation they provide, which is not obvious if you just go there without any knowledge.
>There aren't really any hidden gems in the world anymore

This is a pretty good point. If something amazing is discovered, the whole world will learn about it. The only places that are awesome and can stay off the beaten path are those that are difficult to reach.

> Where are you from?


> What was Syria like before the civil war?

One of the most hospitable places in the world, same league as Iran. Great people, not much of landscape, huge heaps of waste along roads.

I crossed Syria in Oct-Nov 2011, so technically speaking the war was already ongoing (fights in Homs, FSA being formed). Situation was very tense, I was checked my military many times, including total inspection of baggage.

> What was the best experience?

Hard to point at one, but here are some highlights:

Being invited by a local family to their home, while cycling in the night and in rain through countryside in Syria.

Riding alone across Sahara, sleeping under stars.

Paradise-like scenery and tranquility of countryside on Mount Elgon slopes, in Uganda.

I've never bought a suitcase before. Haven't travelled in ~10 years.

What should I be looking for? What are the things I'm probably forgetting to think about while buying one, since I've barely ever travelled? How much should I be paying?

I do plan to pack a decent amount of clothes. Few pairs of shoes.

I much prefer backpacks, you can run for a flight with a backpack and it's vaguely easy. Suitcases are awkward, if you're tall then they always bash your legs and you have to stoop to pull them.

The security issues in soft-sided ones are valid (they can also sometimes just be slashed with knives) but hard ones can usually be forced with a crowbar or any length of metal etc.

Really you just don't valuable things in a suitcase, even in flights. Don't travel with guns and diamond-encrusted...
