I'm working in Toronto for the summer before finishing grad school in the states. My roommates here are pleasant enough, but they have their own lives going, so I don't have a ton of interaction with them.

How does /trv/ go about meeting people in a new city? Meet-up websites? Online dating?

I'm thinking of going to Asia for a few months. Thinking a country that is not rich (Like Korea or Japan because you need an actual college degree to teach in the busy cities.) I'm just looking for a country that has: Easy women, cheap cigs, good food, friendly people, someplace where they won't behead me. Thanks in advance! (Thinking Phillipines, Vietnam, Rural China.)

Could I get from Tangier to Dakar by taxi, train, hitchhiking or will I die?

I am inexperienced and have never left Western Europe.

I was there recently, and I didn't die from Hitchhiking to 2 hours south of Agadir from Tangier.

But it's Africas, it's not the same rules as in Europe.

But in my oppinion you should be fine getting to Dakar by bus/taxi and hitchhiking.

I hitched to Nouakchott last year. Hippies do it on a weekly basis, judging from all the French names I saw in hotel guestbooks who give their occupation as 'Artiste'
Check out this badass girl's blog. She's giving it a better write-up than I could.
http://lambpost.com/category/travel-2/africa/mauritania/

Is it dangerous? Not even slightly. Is it adventurous? Depends on your perspective. It's certainly unforgettable. I'd love to do it again and get to Dakar.

>I am inexperienced and have never left Western Europe.
It's pretty necessary that you speak French. Otherwise the only thing I'd say is don't let anyone in morocco sell you cigarettes to smuggle south. Tobacco is actually cheaper the further south you go.

Guys I need some advice and I just get shit on in /int/.
I'm thinking of transferring from my PhD program to another overseas. The countries I'm interested in (largely due to a high HDI and good research/science dev.) are:
Norway, Japan, Australia, South Korea.
Does anyone have experiences, pros/cons of living there as an English speaker (I would of course learn the language over time) but this is a 6-7 year commitment to finish my degree.

>>1119246
I assume you're from the USA? I can give advice on Australia; it won't be 6-7 years, they will want you done in 4. The PhD programs don't have the same amount of coursework or exams as the North American system because the bachelor degrees are more concentrated. You obviously need to study up more on the differences in the programs. You can get a medium term residence permit once you graduate, that's one reason why Australia is so popular with international students, but investment in science is...

Depends if you're interested in cultural places with pyramids, festivals, food; or tourist places with nightlife, beach. Some places offer both, like Mexico City or Yucatan. Oaxaca and Chiapas are amazing, and coastal cities like Puerto Vallarta or Isla Xolbox are also cool.
San Miguel allende and Guanajuato have pretty good night life with good girls, same for Queretaro and Puebla.

So yeah I basically lost my mind for a girl that I met in Italy, she's from Astana so I thought 'hell, why not going actually there?' . So there is still no plan, I dont know If while Im there I want to hop on a train and visit a bit more of the Country. Anyone been there? Any tips ? What should I expect? I read that if you fuck up even slightly you can easily get kicked off the country. Welp.

Don't chase the pussy bro. Been there, done that, just don't.

That being said, Karakhstan is probably a pretty cool country to visit in summer so go for it and just make meeting the girl a side priority

you are both right, I will try to change my mindset and try to create a cool schedule of things to do, the girl will be (eventually) the cherry on the top. Ive read around that the capital its a pretty new city in his economical boom, so hopefully in the summer there will be party and stuff

What do you like to do? Literally, in NYC, that's the only question you need to answer and you can go out to do that. Go to the Met, walk through Central Park. It's Spring so I don't know what's going on in Bryant Park but there's usually some free activities that change seasonally (movies, ice skating, plays, etc). Wake up before sunrise and go to the Brooklyn Promenade for a nice view of Manhattan.

Bars are bars. McSorley's for an authentic experience. It's one of the oldest...

Thanks guys, anything helps, I might bump a bit.

Guess watches are fine. You guys shut the fuck up. This is not /fa/ and even if it was, Guess makes good looking, quality, affordable watches. Great entry level watches, and priced right for a gift or for general everyday wear. Fucks answer the OPs question. Damn, everyone on /trv/ seems to be a snob about EVERYTHING lately.

From the looks of it, you may be able to set that 24hr clock (on the right) for a different time zone. That bezel isn't meant to move, but it looks like you may be able to calculate the time zone by the cities. Everyone is a different time zone. So when it's 12pm in New York, count to your left, then it's 1am in Tokyo.

Only among stoners.

If it develops a global advantage in something important, sure. Even the ganja is not often produced locally, it's just imported from California or British Columbia.

But it has the advantages of a beautiful setting, outdoorsy stuff, and strong second-tier food and booze options. Many people like that more than the stuff you can find in real great global cities.

Denver is definitely relevant on a national level. Not sure about international level, though. Most globally-relevant cities that are not capital cities are typically not far from the ocean.

What are some good travel forums other than /trv/? Looking for places with more experienced travellers, not necessarily "real traveller" stuff but not babby's first trip to Europe or British chavs going to Prague to party.

Flyertalk is good but is mostly about business travel, which doesn't interest me so much.

Lonely Planet is really "clean" and lacking real talk.

/r/solotravel on reddit is 99% babby's first trip to Europe. (How you be scared of your flight to Europe to the point of lying awake is beyond me by the way.)
