What's up with French anon? Has he made any new threads in the past few months?
how does that make him a jerk?
link or proof? someone made an archive?
I think you're talking about a different french anon. The one OP is referring to had 2 threads going on here forever, he started in Morocco if I remember correctly, made it kinda far down south, then stopped posting. He was met up by Belgian anon and they had some fun, gay times together. Best /trv/ thread in a long time.
two or three threads I think
We said no homo, so it wasn't gay.
Anyway, short recap of the entire thing would be
>he drove from Mauretania, met up with him in Dakar >drove to Ivory Coast over the course of 3 months due to prolonged mechanical problems >he hopped over to Ghana, got a Honda Africa Twin, I went home, he remained in IC for 5 months to get new bike fully equipped >made his way through Mali, Burkina Faso (maybe Togo/Benin), Nigeria, stayed in Cameroon for a while, went to CAR >was in Bangui for ~3 months waiting for new parts (Western CAR is not the warzone the East is) >crossed river from Bangui straight into DRC >made it through, then Uganda, then Kenya to Indian Ocean, took 2 years all in all, haven't heard from him since
whats it like to live in the philippines?
what can you do as an expat there?
My gf is filipina and wants to move back... I am open to it but I'm not sure what it would be like. I have been to Thailand, Vietnam and Japan... I am assuming it would be a lot like Thailand/Vietnam (not culturally, but in terms of shit never working right, bad wifi etc.) but want to hear from someone working there. We would be living in Cebu
Davao is very comfy and has lots of expats. Used to be very cheap until a person from there became president.
Sounds like they fucked up and you'd better go see immigration to get the right one so you don't have problems when you next try to leave. Sorry dude. I'm no expert but it's what I'd do.
Go to Immigration or better yet call the US Embassy Manila hotline for immediate assistance.
Old thread was hitting bump limit.
It's also important to remember that most antibiotics will not treat the clap or chlamydia. Busting out the OTC fish penicillin or an old cephalexin bottle will not help. You need to see a doctor.
For chlamydia, you typically need either doxycycline, azithomycin (like a z-pak), or erythromycin.
For gonorrhea, you need an injection to be reasonably sure you're safe, plus a round of these stronger antibiotics.
Go to a free gay clinic if you must. But for the love of god, get checked.
Yeah get checked dude. But you don't have aids, don't be silly.
They're mostly ugly, everywhere. Far, far better looking girls elsewhere in asia or Europe. You can find one you think is cute but you have to hunt for it. I have only seen a couple of real stunners, and they wanted way too much money. On the upside the girls mostly have good energy, are not drug addicts most of the time (from venues) and you can negotiate. Pros and cons. Also great if you're into petite girls who look young. But let's face it, they are mostly pretty average.
>>1470004 >implying those aren't common antibiotics.
There are some very good looking girls. But all Asians benefit greatly from makeup and dim lights. Still, some of the girls I have seen have been very good looking. Some of the freelancers can be even better.
Haven’t asked any girls how much to stay for multiple days. I had sort of panned on it but having got here it just hasn’t worked that way.
If you could find a girl it would probably be in the 6k range for bar fine and cost of overnight. Just pay multiple days. Most will say no I think. They have lives and things to do. But if you ask around I am sure you will find someone. I just think about one day after being here you won’t want to.
You can try an escort service - just google escort Bangkok. They offer that but the price for them is very high. Like 10k or more. Girls look good though.
I can only speak for Bangkok though. Two more days and I go to pat pattaya.
I'm interested to hear how much does it cost in other countries.
It could describe a lot about the quality of life over there. Or maybe signify where is the best place to live/vacation if you're a cheapskate.
I'll start off with mine:
Also expat and stayed in both of these countries. I can never remember paying remotely close to these prices.
Are you comparing central city convenience store prices or something ?
I remember buying them in pairs or three 1.5l which ended up at about $1.5 each bottle.
Could only find a 2 liter but 138 yen in Japan. Could vary greatly depending what store you buy at though.
Czechia about $1
But a 2L is also $1 so no point buying the smaller one really Cans are even worse for a 0.3L can you pay $0.6
138 yen + tax means 149 actually

This is eMart, which is by far the best-priced supermarket chain in Korea (LotteMart and HomePlus are absolutely HORRENDOUS by comparison):
3400 won = $3
Consumer prices are utterly insane here. There is ***NO*** price competition in Korea.

What instances of seemingly mundane things have caused you to be extremely comfy?
Just stop nitpicking already. By your definition there are latin american countries that have a majority "white population"
It's not really nitpicking. Western culture = western world. Nitpicking is not including western countries because their colonizers didn't have the good sense the exterminate the natives like America and Australia did.

>Favorite small European town?
I've already visited a lot of the larger towns, and my wife is wanting to go back this spring. What would be some good smaller towns for us to visit? Mostly interested in towns that have medieval structures. Also good food is always a plus.
You can visit Mexico.
>>1468341 >or me a city has to live, you have to see locals in the street doing their everyday things. Paris is a very nice wxample. Although very touristic it still belongs to the paris citizens
Paris is getting Africanized. I don't believe you can still call many parts of Paris; you'd be better off calling them parts of Algiers and Bamako
Karpacz is a nice city in southern Poland with lots of eateries and bars, and is very close to most hiking trails in the Carpathians and the highest peak in polish Carpathians, Śnieżka
Just look away when you see the Goębiewski hotel, it's an abomination and should be burned to the ground with nuclear fire.
Seconding Óbidos. Honorable mention to the Old Town in Faro.
I'm planning a 3 week trip to Southeast Asia. My plan is to spend some time in south Vietnam around Ho Chi Ming, maybe 3-4 days in Phnom Penh (Cambodia), then finish up in Bangkok.
I am not interested in sex/hookers. I'd like to eat, drink, be a local, explore, get lost. I think it would be cool to spend some time in the country side and be outdoors, but I only speak English.
What can you tell me about these cities? Places to do, things to experience? My budget is around $4-5000. I am open to all suggestions.
pnom penh is a shithole and youre much better off skipping it and spending 2 or 3 days in siem reap instead. bkk is pretty cool but in my opinion chiang mai is a lot more accessible for tourists and has much more cool stuff in a smaller space. also you probably want to hit a beach town ie rayong or phuket instead of milling around in a city
t. lived in cambodia for almost a year and thailand for over a year
OK, i might shorten to 1 day in PP. i dont mind a shithole, i just dont want to get stolen from or murdered.
how easy is it to get around in Cambodia and Thailand? Would it be easy to cross the border on a motorcycle?
No, you can take a motorbike across into Thailand. No problems taking one cross border Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
You can't take one into Thailand sorry. You'd probably get one out as the Cambodian side are useless and don't care.
Go to Siem Reap not Phnom Penh. Otherwise fine for a short trip.
What exactly are the 'no-go' zones in England and France?
No such thing in England, don't know about France. It's a meme made up by /pol/ so they can pretend the darkies are taking over or something.
In the UK, none really. Not sure about France but certainly some of the stuff put about regarding eg Marseille is fearmongering nonsense
they're somewhat true
but some of the part are exaggerated greatly
/po/ is becoming is the sjw, trying to conflate the truth to push their agenda
>inb4 le horseshoe
Concur with the other guys. A no-go zone is something more akin to a Brazilian favela. Where the law goes in with a SWAT team and expect to be sniped at any moment. In Europe it is just a word that has been hijacked by the yellow press to symbolize anywhere an urban dwelling journalist is scared to go and buy cocaine.
Also: the notion that extreme no-go zones exist in Germany; NL and Scandinavia is just plain wrong. In the UK on the other hand there are "estates" where people will come up to you if you look like you do not belong. If you live close to one of these estates (that for some reason are spread all over London) you will find a lot of your belongings (scooters, patio furniture) will disappear and there will be drag-marks towards the ghetto.

Not everyone is raised with a silver spoon in their mouth buddy, some people have to work for a living. Well done on being born into a suitable senpai though
raised with a silver spoon in my mouth? Did you even read my post jackass?
Incase you didn't, Im a contractor, I work in Afghanistan year in and year out. You could too if you applied.
It was a job I got which I got after the army. Which is a job I got when I joined to get out of where I came from when I was dealing drugs and got robbed one time in southern Baltimore. Silver spoon? No, it's called seizing opportunities.
Pssst. Everyone dies alone, and misery is either a choice or a personality/mental flaw that having a family won't necessarily fix
Is it grass being greener syndrome or you just don’t love them anymore?
idk thats what im afraid of. Honestly I just want to be free and be able to hook up with new people. Plus, she wants to buy land and a small house on her familys land and I want to move and live abroad.
But Im afraid that if I break up I will realize that I made a huge mistake. But if I dont then I will regret it forever and always think what couldve been.
Do you guys have any breakup stories? Any situation where you broke up due to conflicting dreams?
How can I go to the UK during February as a solo traveler and avoid becoming bored?
I will have up to ~ 10 days and I am really interested in castles, museums, history, etc. Maybe I'll also try to use Tinder wherever I go.
I can only currently think of London and Edinburgh as places I would definitely want to visit.
Other than that, I have this list of places that might be good:
>liverpool (anything here other than beatles nostalgia?)
>some city where I can find lots of Tinder slags (suggestions?)
Nor just UKIP but she Essex girl, the best. At least photo was surely taken there, in Harlow
Why does most of 4chan says UK girls are ugly and fat?
The vast majority of the ones i encountered were not, im always confused by that.
Eye of the beholder and all that, but if this was Germany or Denmark, that girl is 4/10 at best.
Bullshit, she's at least a 6. Germany and Denmark have a higher average but there's plenty of uggos there too to drag it down.
>>1470074 >she's at least a 6
In the UK, yes. But objectively, from an international standpoint, she is borderline ugly.
