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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
Go there and find out. Worst case scenario, you'll be arrested, charged for illegal possession and rot in an awesome jail with all your expenses paid by citizens of another country that will hate you 4ever and ever.
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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1110013 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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'm from Paris... for your information, frenchies don't like tourists, it's stupid I know but it's like this. and especially the americans because we don't like the way they think they are the best in everything...
Hey /trv/ I'm planning to live in a hotel. Is there anything I should know before going throughout with this? Pros and cons? I'll be traveling a lot, so I want to become accustomed to living in a hotel.
>>1109622 I lived in a hotel for 4 years during my childhood. This inspired me to take up tourism as my career bc we lived in a Caribbean hotel. I loved that hotel so I want to take up a job at a hotel and live in one bc I loved the atmosphere
Will I be able to survive in Spain with my current level of Spanish?: Hola. Voy a viajar a España este verano. Quiero hablar con los españoles. Me quedaré con una familia anfitriona y quiero comunicar con ellos. Algas familias no hablan inglés. Piensas que esto es posible? Puedo sobrevivir en España con mi nivel actual de español. Muchas gracias.
>go to only one city in a state/region >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.
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,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

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.
After months of work I'm flying to Alaska! Decided to live there a while back and so here I am finally in the airport! Today is the day! I plan to set down my roots and never move again! I'm so excited and this seems to be the board for this topic! The lines are so long here!
