On the contrary, I keep getting sorta made fun of by my coworkers because I want to go to Japan by myself. I have a couple friends that offered to come with me, but I said I'd rather go alone, and they understood, but my coworkers keep trying to tell me I'm gonna have a bad time and how bored I'll be. I know they're wrong but it's annoying as hell heh.
>>1105094 >>1105108 Thanks. I am staying at multiple hostels but I wasn't sure if I can safely leave luggage behind. Although, now I realize whatever train station I arrive at before going hiking, I can leave a small suitcase/large backpack in the locker for a day. Are hostels in Japan generally safe to leave luggage behind? Because then it's no problem.
>>1105130 Most hostels have lockers. Either for your entire bag/backpack or just for the most important stuff. I always just put the most important stuff into the lockers and left my bag and clothes unattended while I explored the cities. No problem ever ocurred.
What are some of the best airlines you've been on and some of the worst?
- Cathay Pacific: Excellent service, decent-ish food (for a long haul flight) even in economy. Some of the best business class flatbeds. Great IFE. Virtually every single long haul is serviced by 777-300s (the newer variant).
- British Airways: Most long hauls still serviced by older 777-200s, crappy IFE as a result. Poor quality Business Class. Service generally average.
My name is BuckyHayashi.I'm Japanese.I'd like to introduce the scenery of Japan. And,I want to say that I'm thinking.I made a video.I told about my daily life and Japanese religions in my video.Sorry, but I'm poor at English. Please see my video on YOUTUBE.
>>1102737 Thank you sir. I think that The polytheism has the strong point and the weak point. the strong point is The flexibility. the weak point is probably The cowardly little. I lived in the polytheism.I'd like to be happily by conquering the weak point.
I'll be in Nepal this October and have a few questions. Feel free to contribute or answer some of mine! Here we go
>Which national park is worth it when it comes to seeing tropical flora and fauna? Is Chitwan the non plus ultra or are there better options? >(quite old) lonely planet speaks of very cheap prices like 8$ for a day trip on an elephant back. Is it still that cheap? >How's the infrastructure; should I count in some days just for driving/flying... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey there comrade, Nepali here. Chitwan is the best option. Elephant riding prices vary per week. They are usually low, but I would go to Nepal and ask for the price. The infrastructure is still bad, but managable. However, some days, the politicial parties close all the roads in Nepal. Flying is always an option, 24/7. You can still drive pretty much everywhere. Two week hikes for a moderately fit man? Eh... posibly not. Gain some lower body strength (Legs) and you will be good. Air pressure is notbad unless you go north, but its managable. Look in travel forums for materials... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've just recently gotten back from a 2 month trip to Nepal, can answer any questions. >Sorry if some of my answers are long winded
>Which national park is worth it when it comes to seeing tropical flora and fauna? Is Chitwan the non plus ultra or are there better options? I went to Chitwan. Spent total 4 days there, was the highlight of my whole trip. Did a all day walking safari through the park. Is a very intense safari,and one I dont think you can do anywhere else. You also get the least reassuring... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Are two-week hikes too incriminating for an mediocre fit European? Where are you planning to hike? Some hikes are easy. Some are not. I did Jiri to EBC, and it was definitely tough in parts. If you're worried about AMS, try to plan a route that has you going above 3500, then back down again in the same day. Walk high, sleep low. You do notice the lack of oxygen as you get higher up, and yes it does make things harder. >Is the air pressure as oppressive as I think, when you aren't used to it? See... Comment too long.

I am from Hong Kong. I've been learning Spanish for half a year now. I've been learning at a much faster pace that I expected, but now I am thinking about switching to another language.
The story is this. I've always wanted to learn a new language but I didn't have the opportunity to do so during secondary school. Back then, I would have probably picked French, German, or Japanese. During high school, I met an online friend who happens to be Spanish and we ended up talking every day. At uni, I had the opportunity to pick whatever I want as a new language... Comment too long.

>>1105927 >You are set for life This, so I don't know what to pick. And I don't know, I sometimes feel like the efforts spent learning a new language are wasted. I don't which foreign language is my favourite.
>>1095248 Thailand is generally easier to meet women however it's not as open as you'd think. I'm not a big fan of Thai women (hate the way they talk), Viet women are tiny so that may or may not be a plus for you. Thailand is easier to get started as a foreigner who knows nobody, in Vietnam you really need to get a few local friends before doors start opening for you.
Food is a matter of preference; personally I don't care much for most Vietnamese food (coffee on the other hand is p good) so Thailand... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This might be a dumb question but when people say specific countries or programs require a bachelors, does that have to be something related to English? Or are they just looking for a bachelors to see that you speak the language well enough to graduate with a degree?
I'd like to teach there, preferably not in the gulf though. My ideal location would be Iran, if not then Lebanon or Egypt. I've heard that the best way to find teaching jobs in the Middle East (apart from the gulf) is on the ground through word of mouth and visiting schools, is this true?
I would assume Iranian schools would be desperate for English teachers, as its generally hard for Westerners to move there and they have a young population. Is that the case? I am a native speaker btw, but also have a French passport, which may... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
It's not a place you go to for the bars and restaurants. Enjoy the nature, volcanoes, etc. That being said, I had a nice meal at Laekjarbrekka. There's also a grill place called Chuck Norris, just to say you've been there.
>>1094421 That place looks good, thanks. And I'm just passing through as part of a larger trip around Iceland. Still, it'd be nice to have some fun in the city while I'm there. And I've heard pretty good things about the nightlife.
>>1100943 this guy again. For what it's worth, I have an intense fear of heights. So I look at my options like this: I can visit all the places around the US, driving, and have a p-cool road trip a bunch of times, or I can fly there, minimize the time I have to take off work (and pay for gas, and possible car troubles), and spend the maximum amount of time in the destination I wanted to go to.
When someone asks for destination suggestions, why are people deliberately biased toward places they themselves have been? "I've been to Barcelona and literally nowhere else in Spain. You should definitely go to Barcelona, it's AMAZING." Why, why, why?
Used Greyhound during my sophomore year. Going from Louisville KY to Savannah GA. Wore nothing but Converse shoes and a yellow sundress. Got turned on when the freaks were clearly fucking me with their eyes. One of the stops include Atlanta around 3AM. Black guys everywhere. Blew kisses. No one did anything. 16 hours later, got to Savannah. The end.
I've heard that most places that tourists would look up, places with high trip advisor ratings etc, are swarming with tour groups or chinese
Are there peak times to avoid the big crowds? Do you have to accept a crowd of some sort? The pictures are mostly empty temples and one or two people at those orange gates in Kyoto but I'd imagine that's not the reality
