DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ASIAN NIGHTLIFE AND WESTERN NIGHTLIFE IN YOUR EXPERIENCE (clubs, dance festivals etc) shit like how physical these girls are with strangers etc, what can you do and not do as a comparison

There really is no difference. Nightlife is the same everywhere you go.

well for me its really really different. I'm not sure were you have been but western girls are much much more chill. and I have never pulled a girl in asia who isnt obviously a hooker. In western countries i have taken so many girls home. Plus in Asia (Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Japan) its really hard if you are not white in clubs...thoughts?

Why doesn't everyone in America live in LA or Miami. I know rent is expensive but it's affordable even on minimum wage,and you have a chance of earning a higher wage there. Are people just retarded?

The wage is higher but the rent and other costs are higher too, so there isn't much difference to other places. It all depends on what you like, if you're into surfing, then LA is the choice, but if you like skiing, you'd probably prefer Seattle or something.

Just for fun. It's interesting to see how people around the world live.

Pick a picture that is taken within 0-2 minutes walking distance of your home. Kinda lame if someone who lives in the outer parts of paris posts a picture of the Eiffel tower.

So this is where I live, it's a part of central Stockholm (Which is the capital of Sweden for those who didnt know) called Hornsbergs strand.

The area is a bit sleepy but we have like a 30 second walk down to the water from our house entrance so that's great. We have a little mini-gym made out of...

North Carolina reporting in. I'm in Charlotte, the largest cit in the state, but there is a system of "green ways" and creeks that provide forage and corridors for getting around for various critters.

In addition to the deer, I've had several sorts of hawks, some racoons, possums and once a wild turkey (which is...

Reunion Island here.
I live a short distance outside of the most touristic town of the island.

Pros:
Best beaches (with the island's coral reef) are a 3mn drive.
Local nightlife is much more alive than most other towns (tropical islands tend to be super quiet after nightfall).
Weather like pic related 300days+ /year (between the coral reef and the mountain as a backdrop, we have a microclimate when some other parts of the island are under pouring rain 9 months/year).
Neighborhood is quite new, so infrastructures are better than most parts of the island...

Hey /trv/ what are your experiences with staying at Hostels? Also Is it frowned upon to crash at night and leave in the morning and do I need reservations to stay at one? Sorry for being retarted.

>>915392

First stay for me coming up, but i've researched a bit.

Yeah, you'll need to reserve, I did my reservation online but this hostel doesn't charge until check-in, so I assume they ask to reserve so they don't overbook. And yeah don't see why a single night would be frowned upon.

Also, be sure to check reviews.
>>
Single nights are fine. Reservations are likely needed during busier seasons. Best to send an email or call ahead if you're unsure about your plans.
>>
That's exactly what hostels are for. A place to sleep. Most guests are one night only. You can check in at 11pm and check out at 3am for all we care. Your roommates will probably hate you and you're not getting a refund. But it's basically just like a hotel. Reservations are sometimes necessary, weekends and summer especially. Just call or email. I work in a hostel.

Hey /trv/,

I made this thread a couple of times before. Although some friendly posters helped me keep it bumped for a short while, I wasn't able to post often after my laptop's motherboard got fried. Now that I've bought a new computer, I figure I'll give this another go, despite the fact that /trv/ has way more shit-posters than I remember.

So yeah, here I am again: ask a guy who hitchhiked around Iceland and from London to Istanbul before spending three-and-a-half months living in New Delhi anything. I'll post pictures in roughly chronological...

I was gone for almost five months on my last trip. I left at the very beginning of May and returned closer to October than not. I spent a week and a half in Iceland and mid-May until mid-June hitchhiking from London to Istanbul. I did cheat once or twice (I was hitchhiking because I was broke, not just because I thought the idea was cool), like when I took a paid car from Sarajevo to Belgrade in order to ensure my arrival in Istanbul in time to catch a flight to Dubai.

I saved $2900 or so for this trip and...

That place is called Tobita Shinchi and there's no other place like it in Japan. I'm not usually into paid sex but I also wanna go there next year.

Some badass old dude Japanese shop keeper told me about it, said to go there and experience it because the Japanese government are most likely shutting it down within the next few years. I didn't go though, and regret it now. But expect to be paying at least $100 for any kind of service

I just got fired from my job so I plan on selling my car for about 5k and heading flying off to a poor country. I have decent enough vocals and I figure I can hire a band to back me up. I plan on being shamelessly fake about my image and trying to play off the idea that Americans are rebellious badasses that play by their own rules.

have studied abroad in japan, so only from what I've heard:

> it's shit if you are at the lower end of the food chain
> you have to get to work really early
> you have to stay until your boss goes home
etc.

but since you start there in a higher position maybe you won't have those problems

I'd say go for it. I want to move to japan again too. Going for JLPT 3 this december. Good Luck!

You WILL work overtime, unpaid, every-fucking-day. That means you have to show up at least 20 minutes early, stay for your normal 8-9 hours, then stay until around 9 at night. Yes, that mean you'll get home around 10. Yes, that means you'll have almost no time for the vidya or 4chan.
