The guy that normally stays in hotels but budget has ran out and therefore has utter disdain and hate for everyone else.

I stayed in a hostel exactly ONCE in my life. I am quite extroverted - but still have srs anxiety issues and just need my own space. The time I stayed in a hostel was studies-related, we were in St Petersburg and our university crammed us into a hostel room. Couldn't sleep, tense all night, hung out in the filthy lobby room where some dirty Kazakhs were having a late-night snack. OH BOY. never again. 4 am, lying awake, I looked for an Airbnb. Found one and pissed off. I swear to God the other people in that class ended up hating me and thought I was the most pompous cunt...

The mysterious loner that likes to party, and normally befriends other people akin to him. Also likes to talk world politics with everyone.

Anyone here ever tried hosting kids via a program (i.e. not websites such as Couchsurfer)? What's it like being a host and hosting exchange students visiting your city?

It's a hit or miss.
The kids you host may be extremely shy, some conceited bastards shitholes, borderline hyperactive, just dumbass stupid pieces of down syndrome or the best kids in the world.
And there's also the hit or miss about whether they'll connect with your kids and have a nice interaction.
Some programs, I believe, allow you to choose between some kids (they give you the profile of the brat and you pick one), others may just send you a random one.
It really depends and you should seek information with the program organizers.

Hello /trv/. I'm an American who's traveling to Europe this summer, and I have a concern. I'm 19 years old and a freshman in college, and this summer, I'll be going to Croatia with my best friend from high school. My friend is of Croatian descent, and as such, he has family over there, and thus, he will actually arrive in Croatia a few days before me. Also, since I'm a starving college student, I couldn't afford a direct flight to Croatia. Instead, I booked a flight to Frankfurt, Germany, and I plan to take a train into Zagreb.

However,...

OK, so firs you have to understand that the US transit system is all built off of the Interstate Highway System -- supplemented with airports, so the best ways o get around the country are by car or plane. If you can't do a car, and what you want is to hit certain cities, look into air travel between cities.

If that doesn't work for you, your choices are bus or train or hitching. Our train system is OK on commuter routes between cities in the NE corridor and I am told along the west coast. Not so much...

19 KB,
Has anyone here been to Albania? After visiting Japan, I really want to travel more and look for possible places to move to out of the United States. The Albanian language has always interested me.
How would you fellows who've traveled to Albania describe it? Is it nice there? Easy/hard to get around for someone who doesn't know Albanian?

Had a very nice few weeks backpacking through. Very friendly open people. Very pleasant hitchhiking. Not a ton of infrastructure. There are no real bus or train lines, only taxies. Interesting roads as well.

I would happily spend the rest of my life there and never look back. Beautiful country, amazing people.
>>
>>1109857
I'm sure the people were very friendly and open to you, but I'm afraid that's only because they wanted your money. Albania is a very backwards country where blood law is still practiced and organized crime is rampant.

"Not a ton of infrastructure" and "interesting roads" are both very shit ways of saying that infrastructure is basically nonexistent.

Overall, it's a nice place to visit if you enjoy nature and hiking and stuff like that, the mountains to the north...

Spent several weeks. Spent little money, was never asked for any. Given much rakia and cigarets.

If your prone to stupidity, you stand a good chance of being killed, or more likely severely beaten and robbed. It is a different world. However, if your not a fucking dipshit you will be fine.

Thinking of meeting up with my friends on their trip to Paris in November or December. Probably gonna be doing my own thing for a few days cuz they're a couple, and I want to give them their alone time.

Also what are my chances with the French girls if I'm American?

I never see these on this board and I feel like it should definitely be a part of the board. If anyone has any helpful links regarding the subject please post them. Eventually we can make a paste bin.

This should be a pretty slow thread but a hopefully a very helpful one.

Feel free to post any luggage questions!

Any recommendations?

>act like you've experienced the whole country
Do any of you guys do this and if so, why?
Even in small countries/US states there are lots more experiences that are outside the big major attractions. Don't get me wrong, there's still plenty to do in the city, but please tell me at least that I'm not the only one skeptical of things like the "where have you been" map threads.

As somebody who lived in the US for a year, I honestly don't think most US cities are that different.

Yea so I've decided I don't want to have a career or be a wageslave (no offense to who decided to go the corporate way).

This means I need to find alternative ways to make money. My past professions :
-Shit jobs like administrative helper, etc
-poker player for 2 years
-muay thai and jiu jitsu teacher (not a black belt in any of them, though I'm good at teaching)
-whoring in chaturbate

My next stupid plan is to go to Asia (China or Japan, maybe Cambodia/Vietnam) and find a "White guy job", such as fake businessman, fake teacher,...

Well, you're right about one thing -- it is a stupid plan. "White guy jobs," as you call them, disappeared a long, long time ago (and when they did exist, they were extremely rare). Fake businessmen get beaten up and/or put in jail, fake teachers get fired very quickly, and nobody pays men for sex except for desperate gay men. IOW, enjoy your AIDS.

Wow never saw a line in Anchorage, even at TSA... interesting. Must be fairbanks?

Anyway, have fun OP. Get yourself a 4WD, and befriend some dudes to take you fishing for some salmon, halibut, hunting, flying and all the goodness that is Alaskan summers.

If you just want to live somewhere cheap? I had eyed some pretty places for sale in Seldovia last visit that were gorgeous!! I just live too far for a vacation home there.
