So it was my first time traveling alone and staying in a hostel. I really liked the experience of meeting new people and hanging with them for a few days but I always felt lonely or sad after parting ways in particular with this one scandanavian girl. So how does /trv/ deal with hostel frans?
It just seemed like a hassle they were fun but for me it always left me feeling lonely after is it even worth communicating with anyone at the hostel?
This man is definitely cooked
You sound way to overly idealistic. Not everyone travels to "find permanence", it's actually the exact opposite reason most people travel. Staying in hostels and falling in love for a day, and having fun with strangers is a bittersweet thing. I love being around people when they are away from their normal milieu, it's brings out the best in them, it makes them genuine, honest and fun loving. I, and most other people don't want to stick around and see everyone for their true colors, we likely wouldn't be happy with what we saw, better to say with good graces and fond memories.
You sound way to overly idealistic. Most people do not travel to "find Permanence", they travel for the exact opposite actually. It's not secret that saying goodbye to people bittersweet thing. I enjoy being around people when they are away from their normal milieu, it brings out the best in them. People away from the constraints of their daily lives are always more genuine, happy, fun-loving and spontaneous. If you stuck around and tried to "find permanence" with these people you probably wouldn't feel the same about them the next day, much less months down the road. It's better to leave and say goodbye in good graces and with fond memories.
Not all of use delete our facebook, I got plenty of places to stay if I ever need them
Not everyone is like you, some people stay in one place and hate their lives forever. There is no certificate of appreciation for sticking around, and in some cases no one will care that you did. It all depends on what your obligations are when you take off, and how you handle your business.
I feel like jumping on a train tomorrow and spend the weekend somewhere, no matter the costs. Any suggestions, /trv/? I can reach more or less easily anything in France, Germany, Italy and surroundings (also considering northern spain, or something eastern even). I prefer big cities cause i like to wander around, but I'm open to suggestions.

Anyone here setting off for an adventure soon? Where are you going? What will you be doing?
I'm going to be traveling abroad for the first time solo on a 5 month backpacking trip across Europe. I'm nervous as fuck and keep thinking something will go wrong, but I know once I get there everything will be awesome and I wont want to come back.

Fucked my best friends friend who told best friend casually months later because friend thought it was cool and in the open so I'm thinking about ditching everything for a trip to Nepal.
I think I could survive there a year if I just leave now.

I plan to get all the papers done to finally get my phillipine wife and daughter over to me to my place I miss them like crazy. I am so blessed it's a wonderful country even if there is a war going on for 450+ years. And the people still smile and enjoy their day with a budget of 2$ a day if they r lucky enough to call a job their own. If for some reason it won't work out the way I planned it I really want to stay there with my wife. It will be tough in the beginning but I am sure we can make it right. At home live is like a jail I can't work properly cause of old convictions.and even if I would it's not really possible yet cause of different convictions.I am no real gangster I just like to smoke and trusted the wrong people. Lesson learned the hard way but still ten years to suffer. I can't afford anything cause we will need the funds in winter my daughter just had pneumonia with just 8 month young needed to be hospitalized so I lost this month100$ from my savings cause I send them 500 from the money I was saving for the trip that was all my budget for this month and it's not yet over. Man I am an expert in living cheap. But I am still not as good as these pinoys..can't wait to learn more and enjoy the fish the fruits my own young family and feel free again.
Where are you trying to get your wife & daughter to?
Im traveling to new york and ill have a place to stay with breakfast and dinner, how much money do i need for 7 days?
Approximately 0 dollars + airfare.
This can increase depending on how hungry you are.
I like you, anon
This, but throw in 10usd for a quick meal w/ water or random shit
Depends entirely on what you want to do.
A large chunk of museums are "free" (or "pay what you want"), some are in the $20 range. Subway fare is at most $10/day, you'll probably be walking most of the time. 30 Rock/Empire State have entrance fees to visit their viewing platforms (maybe another $30 there). Broadway shows/plays are highly variant. Sports games are variant. My guess would be a minimum of $200 if you plan to actually do shit and not just walk around all 7 days.
>>1288345 >>1288918 >Subway fare
it's $2.75/ride to anywhere and you can switch trains as many times as you like as long as you don't leave the gate
>30 Rock/Empire State
i agree that at least $200 will get you around and a night or two out.
Hey /trv/ I'll be in Köln/Cologne for 2 days.
Multiple questions :
I don't speak German, is It easy to find what you need with English only ?
I heard there is some sort of huge salon in Germany where there's a shitload of hooker and you only pay to enter. Is that even true ? Where do I find one of those ?
lots of people speak English there, I went without knowing any German words and I was fine. Just say "Spekin Z English?" And people will help you
"shpreckin zee ainglish" is more phonetic
There is an entrance fee for EUR 5 and then you are free to roam the place and negotiate with the hookers, who are all independent.
It was an interesting read, especially the "incidents" part as I didn't even knew such place existed in Europe.
Enjoy the Kolsch.
Cologne local here.
English is 100% fine, almost everyone below 60 knows solid english.
You're probably looking for the Pascha. Very easy to find but not worth it and attracts a shitty crowd imo.
Would recommend spending an evening at the Früh restaurant by the dome.
Make sure to arrive early in the morning for Gamescom to avoid standing in line for an hour before even getting in there. Well you'll still be standing in line a whole lot but you won't lose any event time that way and you'll have a headstart inside.
I'm not the other anon and I don't want to post in his thread because it looks already doomed, but I have to agree with him that Tokyo is pretty boring. Not ugly or "shitty", whatever this means, but boring. I've been here for two weeks and I'll fly back home at the beginning of September. I've already visited the main neighborhoods, the Imperial gardens, some parks and temples and I even took some trips outside the city. But how do I enjoy the life here? How do I meet people? What's the most thrilling experience I can have? I'm worried because I'm starting to get actually bored.
where are you from?
Are amerian cities more exciting than Tokyo?
Guys! Hey guys! What if, wait hear me out what if we just used the hide button on shitposting threads instead of replying to them?
Also, my favorite spice is sage, I use it on all sorts of shit.
Yes, I visited both the Japanese major cities and the American major cities and I can confirm the American ones are better, or at least funnier.
What are some cool things to do in LA as a first time solo and international traveler? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
D-don't mind me.
LACMA sometimes has some good exhibitions.
Depends on what you're into, but Universal Studios Hollywood is nice and easy to reach.
Disneyland in Anaheim is also very close.
Ok guys, so the university I attend has great exchange programs, and I was wondering which place is better to stay for a longer time (around 1 year I suppose? Maybe 2) Seoul or Tokyo? Have you been to any of the places? Please share you experiences! (By the way, I would study Korean/Japanese in this period)
>>1289214 >would you go to greece if everything cost 3x as much?
I am very interested in ancient history and the ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine empires so I would definitely still go to Greece if it were expensive, kind of a bad comparison. I honestly don't know if I would have gone to Korea if it were 3 times as expensive, what I do know is that I thoroughly enjoyed the 6 months that I've spent there and will return soon when I have the chance.
Most people doing business in Asia (bankers, consultants) try to spend as little time as possible in Korea and get over to Japan or SE Asia as soon as they can, for what it's worth.
this is straight talking out your ass
Here comes the retarded Japan vs. Korea thread with retards that haven't been in either country for more than 3 days, if at all.
I am currently a US college student planning on going away to a state University soon in Illinois, but the Antarctic has always fascinated me
I plan on studying geology and environmental sciences, but I here in order to actually get to Antarctica you have to be hired to go there. Im wondering first how would one get a job as a field scientist or intern? I personally don't give a shit about snow or cold, I love it I'm from Chicago and was in the boy-scouts. It pains me whenever I see people complain about stuff especially the cold. I personally think it would actually be fun to dive those cold waters in a dry suit, or go out on long expeditions. I think penguins are also pretty cool, not really scared of sea lions or the ocean.
TLDR, How can I get a job in Antarctica without getting beat out by all the MIT students and scientest crew
you don't get a job there in geology unless you have a phd. I have my bachelors in geology from University of Canterbury which works alongside the antarctic research program. Theres a very limited intake course which allows you to go to antarctica over a 6 week period (maybe more). But even then you need to be a top top masters student. Its easier to find a way down through a trade.
would disagree with dropping environmental sciences. I did geo and chemistry through undergrad and have now ended back up at uni doing water sciences/environmental management because its where the jobs (if any) are. OP needs to think beyond antarctica, that mindset is too restrictive in real life. Its a bizzare world for geologists, geographers get all the environmental jobs, civil engineers get all the geo jobs.
when i was flying to the states last year i met a guy who had just rotated off a 6 month contract as a fireman in Antarctica. dont even need a degree. you do need to be an experienced fireman though.
the bases are actually micro towns so many trade skills are as important as the scientists producing research, you just have to be widely competent and meet their selection criteria.

You can "get to" Antarctica as a tourist, there are several cruise lines that run there, and last I looked there was a tour by airplane from somewhere in NZ, though it's been a few years since I looked into that.
They make you get a pretty substantial blood test before you go to Antarctica.
Even if you have a mild condition like high blood pressure you can get black-listed.
