Okay it's time to remind ourselves of the real reasons we travel... it's DIRTY BACKPACKER SEX STORY TIME.
Let's hear your grimiest, nastiest, proudest, sketchiest stories of hostel sex or festival hookups.

My girlfriend is Chinese, our relationship is getting quite serious and I am starting to think about a future with her.
She lives in my country but her family is in her own country, I have asked her about the future but she is the type of person who doesnt like to think about it, she just likes to be in and focus on the now.
The problem is, while I am thinking about the future.. She cant really tell me what she wants in life (like at all) if I ask her she just says to be with me now etc.. I have asked her if she would live here or go back to China... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>875159 Have you visited China? China is by no means a bad place to live if you have money, but the quality of life doesn't even come close to Australia.
If you want to work in China you have to bring something to the table a native can't do. So you could try to get work in some large multinational company, or you could teach English. English teacher is usually a low-paid position, but you could use your business skills to build a business out of it maybe. So learning Chinese is definitely a good idea, and perhaps you could do a masters of some kind related to what you already know so you aren't starting at square 1.
As for the general situation you're in... I don't think it's wise to plan your whole future around someone who isn't willing to make any commitment or share their plans with you. It doesn't matter if one of you doesn't want to talk about your future together, it's a conversation you need to have if you're going to be dedicating time and money to re-skilling.
>>875958 No, they're generally pleasant unless provoked. DO NOT under any circumstances joke with them. Don't ask questions, don't slow them down in any way and just follow all the orders they give you. They have to deal with thousands of people every day, they're really bitter that their job sucks so they abuse their powers to harass you if you piss them off.
If they're being friendly with you, be friendly back. If they are being serious, don't try to lighten the mood. Answer only the questions... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pretty much. It's not as bad as people make it out to be (At least not in any of the airports I've been in). Just do like the first poster said and you should be fine. Oh, and know exactly what you can/can't take onto planes. It saves LOADS of time.
>>877546 spoken like a true beta. But its true. If you're a dork you won't get laid anywhere on planet earth and if you talk to the girl about cultural differences and the way things are back home, and try to do the english teacher thing with a Jap girl, they will identify you as beta and friendzone you.
If you demand that she has beers with you and fucks you, she wont say no. in their culture they arent allowed to disagree with men and if you are dressed okay and dominant they will think you are powerful and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Please someone explain to me the appeal of Korea. I don't get it.
It seems a lot of kids under 25 see Korea the way that kids under 25 saw Japan 10-20 years ago. Japan I get--it has anime, a sophisticated exotic culture, and a complex history. Korea is basically a shitty, dirty, poorer copy of Japan. It lacks the complexity, barbarism, and history of China, and it lacks the sophistication and pop culture of Japan. It's a shitty compromise. All that it has going for it are some cute girls with nice legs who sing badly.
Is that it? Seriously? Please someone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Language rather easy to learn, compared to Japanese and Chinese and their thousands of characters. Pop culture still quite attractive Sexier than japan who is often too hard on censorship, and doesn't embarrass so much with formality China too mainstream and sometimes seen as too "professional'. It's more hip to like Korea or Japan. And the Chinese are severely lacking in pop culture, at least Korea makes some watchable dramas.
It's wrong to view it as a second division Japan. The thing about Korea is that it was isolated for centuries before it was forced to open up to Japan and the west in the 19th century. It was the most hardcore Confucian culture before that time. So one of the other things that's interesting about Korea, compared to Japan, is just how fast it modernized and encountering the ancient and the futuristic alongside each other. It's not significantly poorer than Japan, either, and its economy hasn't been stagnating like Japan's. Where are you even getting these... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you actually knew anything about Korea you wouldn't say that. The food has a pretty broad depth and lots of really delicious and interesting things. The culture is unique, and extremely identifiable. The entire country is like one huge family, and social relations are predicated on the relative ages of people. It's also rapidly become a huge part of the global economy, has a big pop culture influence and doesn't necessarily have the same stigma as Japan.
What is completely lost on you though, is that Korea is MUCH more popular throughout Asia than any... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm going to be in Kyoto on the 19th and 20th. I was planning to check out the Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Golden Pavilion, and maybe Katsura Rikyu. However, there's supposed to be thunderstorms on those days.I feel like this completely fucks up my plans. What would be better to do in Kyoto with this weather? If it matters, I'm 22, male, and traveling alone.
Going to Tokyo on a limited budget for two weeks next summer. I'm there as a dumb nerd, culture and food lover and below are all of the attractions I'd like to check out. Gotta pick some off the list, as I'm not gonna be able to save up as much as I had hoped for. Recommendations appreciated. Some of these attractions are free, but they're either super out of the way or I just can't figure out myself if they're worth it (judging from photos/videos). >Trick art museum >Tokyo Joypolis Comment too long.

Ill be going to tokyo and landing on the 1st of this coming month. Can someone answer a few things. >how expensive is the food there >how much are hostels/where are they located >will anyone be there that is willing to show me around/trv with me >notable things to do there. Will have 7 days there with about 1k budget. Hoping to buy animu/manga/LN or just nice things that I can't find stateside. (so I guess a weeb by most standards.)
As some of you may remember, I'm the anon who asked about Georgia, and specifically Tbilisi, which was the second leg of my Russia-Georgia trip, in which I attempted to climb two mountains: Elbrus (5642m) and Kazbek (5033m).
Anyway, as some of you expressed interest in a travel report, I'll dump pictures and tell how both expeditions went.
For starters, here's the first glimpse we caught of Elbrus, after two hours driving from Kislovodsk.
>>869802 As you can tell, the scenery was fucking gorgeous, as was the weather. Initially. 25°C or so, upon arrival.
Our flight to Mineralnye Vody almost went wrong though: our initial plane was delayed almost an hour, and with another hour spent waiting at customs before our transfer in Moscow, we very nearly missed our corresponding flight. Miss Irina the check-in lady wasn't really inclined to let us on the plane because we were rather late - and was very rude to boot - but luckily her boss, Yuriy, was a very... Comment too long.

>>869806 Also, the place is full of flowers. Like, really full. The campsite - we were climbing the rather remote north face of the Elbrus, as opposed to the very touristic south face - was located in the valley along the small stream you see here.
