What are some countries/regions that learning their language will serve you best with? A country where not everyone has perfect English, and they appreciate it a lot when you learn their language.

I mean like the opposite of the Netherlands/Germany/Northern Europe.

As a Westerner with fluent Thai, I can say that Thai people are often impressed and delighted by foreigners speaking good Thai. Those of us who can read and write are an even more amusing party trick.

The downside is that it is not a useful language anywhere but Thailand and Laos...

Oh, and was also going to say that anywhere off the tourist track in Thailand (almost the entire Northeast, rural parts of the North, many inland/non-beachy Southern areas), there isn't much English. Even in the most sophisticated parts of the country the quality of English is rarely high among the general population.

Creepiest shit? There was a black guy and his Chinese girlfriend in one house. The kitchen door was always open even though there is a sign telling to keep it closed and the air current just channels smoke from the smoking area to the kitchen. So one day I was in the kitchen with the chinese girl, someone started smoking so I closed the door. The girl immediately left and instants latter the black guy came angry about how I'm not supposed to close the door even if there is a fucking sign on it telling to keep...

I only book 'entire house/apartment' places from airbnb.

Experiences have all been flawless.

My only gripe is that you have to organize meeting the people to get the keys. Usually they'll offer to pick you up from the airport.

I'm just really anti-social, and would rather rent a place with 0 human interaction.

Once again, it's time.

In Marrakech with my girlfriend. We got lost and someone pretended to guide us but led us to a deeper part a souk and tried to get money from us. Someone else intervened and helped us find our way.

He probably wouldn't have done anything, but considering how lecherous 90% of men there were over my girlfriend, I do wonder what could have happened.
>>
>>1094408

That happened to me as well. Me and my father were looking for the palace gardens in Marrakesch and everybody said they were closed.
Some guy said they were open and asked us to follow him.
When I realised we were going through empty alleys I got suspicious and faked stomach ache so we went back
I'm so sure we would've been robbed.

So maybe I should've written it down in the OP but since nothing happened I can't say for sure if it was a dangerous situation or not.

Apart from the food and from crazy suite-class services, I think business is good enough for me when I want a bit more comfort. And I've even paid for it a few times. But there too, I prefer it on someone...

Move to Japan, no problem.

Integrate in Japan? Not possible. No matter how perfectly you speak English, no matter if you marry a Japanese girl and her father adopts you into the family name and business and your last name changes to Sato, you'll still be viewed as an outsider, basically a dog walking around in people clothes that's been cleverly trained to mimic human speech.

I don't really care about that as I already pretty much feel like an outsider in my country desu. So makes no difference.

Where do I find girls like that?

Hockey Hall of Fame and a Laffs game are guaranteed, but looking for a few more suggestions of things not to miss. Blue Jays are away the days I'm there, is the CN Tower cool or just tourist bait? Aquarium?

depends what you're into man

been there recently, many people say the CN tower is overrated but I had fun, pic related - you get a birds eye view of the blue jays stadium and stuff

also another good thing to do is to rent a bike and go to the Toronto island for the day, it's great, I'll post a shit photo of what it looks like on the way back, looks really good if you can time it right and get the ferry home as the sun sets

Frenchie here. I'm going to visit my sister who's moving to Montréal. I'm going to move at the end of January because it's the only moment i'm free.
So far i can find flights for 650€ to go from Genova to Canada. Is it a decent price ?
Also some guys told me i should not travel there for the winter because "it would be too cold for me". Is it true ? I live in the Alps some i'm used to live with -15°/-20° and snow everywhere in winter.

Also any places to recommand ? I'm planning to stay 2/3 weeks in Canada.

that's a decent price but youu can probably find cheaper if you search around a little more. I used to find flights from London to the central US for between 500-550 euro, but maybe flights from Genova are more expensive since it's a smaller airport. Wait until September before you buy the tickets, anyway; there's no reason to buy 10 months in advance.
It can get a lot colder than -20 in montreal, but it'll definitely be a picturesque time to visit.
>>
If you really want the cheapest flight, check out Wow air. Montreal to Reyjavik for $100, and then a lot of connecting flights to Europe for $150.

It wont be too cold for you. There's an off chance it could be -40 or something, but nobody does anything when it's that cold outside anyways. Below -20, things don''t usually seem much colder. There's no humidity, so you don't get as cold.

Hey OP, I'm French too.
I subscribed to Air France's deal.
You can get direct flight from Paris to Montreal for around 550-650 euros, if you book it at least 40 days before. Just wait for the special deals. It happens at least once every 2 months.

Oh look, this thread again.

/trv. has pretty consistently opposed adding flags every time somebody brings it up, over a number of years.

Reasons include the fact that flags lead to shitposting about the flags on boards that have them, and where a person is posting from (or using a proxy from) add nothing to the discussion and lead to people judging posts based on an irrelevant and often fraudulent indication of where a person is at the moment, etc.

But if we want to go through it again, I would...

in spite of that the content of you post is correct. they would clarify some small things (like what a poster means by "backpacking"), but generally flags just lead to flag shitposting.

>they would clarify some small things (like what a poster means by "backpacking"),

Would not even do that, as you'd have to assume that the flag represents where the person is from, not just where they are posting from. On a travel board, that might not be a correct assumption.
