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.

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?

Best:

- 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).

Worst:

- British Airways: Most long hauls still serviced by older 777-200s, crappy IFE as a result. Poor quality Business Class. Service generally average.

Best:
Emirates

Worst:
Delta

For me the best is Singapore Airlines or Thai Airways, both of which are relatively comfy for a 6'5" person like me in an economy seat. SQ crew are all 9+/10s.

The worst would be Swiss. Shitty old 757s with ancient IFE, crap tier food & liquor, but the staff were nice (Germans mostly).

Only ever used Air France, KLM and Fly Emirates

Fly Emirates the best
KLM is good
Air France always has shitty food

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...

>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.

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...

Would like to know which country is easier to meet women, which country is easier to teach English without a degree, what is the difference between the culture and people of both countries, etc.

I've heard Thailand is advanced. They have good healthcare for Southeast Asia, advanced transportation (Vietnam has no metro), food is better, Thai girls are easier etc. Can anyone concur.

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...

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?
>>
>>1094881
It does not have anything to do with your English ability. Most of the time you have to be a native English speaker so the degree thing is not related to that.

Generally speaking your bachelor's can be in anything. For some jobs a degree in English or Linguistics is preferred but generally it doesn't matter, just have a degree.

Who /middle east/ here?

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...

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.

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.
