West Coast USA reporting in; looking for somewhere to escape to for a week or so around Christmas, but frustrated by the near-inevitable tripling or even quadrupling of airfares that happens around the holidays. We were thinking Costa Rica, but a ticket that I can get for 300 bucks during the first week of December goes for nearly a thousand during the last week, which offends me.
Anyone (especially fellow Yanks) ever found a good deal on a flight around Xmas? When and where to? I tried looking for flights that leave on Christmas Day, thinking that most people would want to travel before the holiday itself, but no dice. My schedule is not that flexible-- my wife has a lot of time off between just before Christmas and just after New Year's, but earlier or later in either December or January aren't really feasible.
Any domestic destinations that are worth checking out for Christmas? Warm is preferred. My wife, a native Californian, has little time for snow.
>pic quasi-related; an absurdly large lunch I was served in Costa Rica a few years back

Nope, looks like you'll be stuck at home, or paying the stupid tax for traveling during peak season.
Have you ever found that personal politics/social upbringing, however subtly, start to reveal themselves when travelling as a pair?
I’ve been travelling with a schoolfriend who I now realise is a Conservative (UK) voter, and it sort of makes sense. He seems to turn his nose up at food markets and stuff in lieu of “muh proper food” or “muh restaurants” or “muh wine” and views visiting cheap countries like Vietnam as a means of spending to LARP as a rich person and placing a lot of value on luxury.
yeah for sure, travelled with some friends who were all about hotels and restaurants and eating proper when we were only 18/19 and turned there noses up at hostels in a major way
sort of traditional British holiday type deal, remember that you're both on holiday so just do what you both want to do. If the other person is mature they'll recognise that and you can enjoy your company when you mutually want to do something rather than all day. lol I heard of a friend who was so square that a JOKE about smoking weed in Amsterdam was enough to freak him the fuck out and just leave immediately for the airport. anyway i only like travelling with people who are easy going cos then I just do what I want with them

There is nothing inherently wrong with that sort of mentality. Eating street food and staying in hostels isn't better (or worse) than restaurants and hotels it's just different. I find traveling with people who are different (whether that be socially, politically, w.e) leads to some of the most rewarding experiences. They challenge and push me to do things I normally wouldn't and vice versa.
For example, I'm really shy but my super outgoing mates will force me to go to go hangout at some party hostel where after a few drinks I end up having a lot of fun. In return, I force them to enjoy a little much needed luxury from time to time when they are being too cheap/hard on themselves
31 year old single guy here. I'll have 2-3 weeks off from work at the end of August, trying to find something interesting to do.
I live in europe, and I can stretch my budget up to ~$6000
-I'm an introvert, travelling alone, but will not mind shared tours.
-I enjoy "dark tourism", learning about history and visiting places people would call "weird".
Anyone have some good suggestions?
If you want to visit places associated with death, try the paris catacombs, auschwitz or the bone cathedral in portugal.
some weird mountain temple in nepal you read in a book obviously
Nah m8. Just came back from a week long stay there, there's nothing to do. No nightlife and nothing touristy (minus overrated wine cellars). Plus you'd have a very hard time without Russian or Romanian
t. born in Moldova
u might be able to go to kamkatchka
Did you go to PMR?
Should points be spent on products or flights?
And how do you maximise your point earnings? Is buying gas at partner stations and stuff like that worth it?
>>1410482 >Except it's actually a scheme to monitor your movement and spending habits
>>1410585 >They would never know where you fly to and when if you don't have a frequent flyer program
Right, but they don't need to track your spending of everything else just so you can get points and keep them from expiring.
The only thing I use my airline/alliance credit card for is booking flights with them. So much for useful spending data for them. And thanks for the extra miles.
>>1410482 >>1410585 >>1410647
They would have a fun time monitoring me, then. I've made it a point to avoid traveling to repeat destinations. I try to visit a new country every trip.
How do I find red light districts in places I travel?
I'm in Manizales Colombia right now and I want to see what a prostitute is like
dont tell anyone, not even bros
>>1408033 > Manizales
Bro go to Medellin, Pereira or Armenia. Manizales is one of the most conservative towns in the whole country. Or go to the coast where there are more people similar to you (african americans)
I'm in Cali right now
What will happen if I told a gf later in life?

She'll think you're a fucking loser
Not necessarily. I told my ex that I banged a prostitute in Tbilisi--since I've had plenty of free and casual sex, she didn't seem too bothered to do anything but say it sounded "gross."
I don't think anybody really cares that much, unless you're having significantly more paid than not. All of my close friends know that I've banged whores, but of the 40 or so women I've hooked up with, only three were prostitutes.
I was thinking of putting my passport and money in my shoe, but there's the possibility of it getting bent or something when I crouch or walk for a while. Any other good ideas? I know of someone who got drugged by just smelling something and the thief took everything.
Stay away from pakis, arabs, niggers and drug users.
Do not attempt to buy drugs or any illegal activity.
100% problems were solved.
ps do not use your back pocket for valuables, keep your wallet in your front pocket.
this is the only good post so far
Get a money belt. Theyre fairly pickpocket proof and you have ones that look exactly like regular belts that muggers might overlook so you get to keep your money.
this, get one that you can put under your shorts or trousers so nobody can get it. When you sleep put it under your pillow and don't forget about it
Get a fanny pack
At the cost of looking like a total tool you can rest assure that anyone trying to steal shit from you have to get to your line of sight Even more secure are the one that has places which faces inward
Fuck it flipped itself
lol i stayed in the exact same place
Shit right ? Haha ah well ended up doing heaps of coke in la paz
Was this built after the 2016 election?
by "heaps of coke" I hope you don't mean that "Ruta" place (69 or whatever the number .. everyone just says "Ruta") , because the shit they give you there does not contain any cocaine
Had a friend recently get deported from Canada because her ex is a psychopath, she's looking into getting a pay as you go plan / as well as a phone, but we wanted to look into international phone plans considering she has a lot of work and moving to do between the countries, and roaming would bite her in the ass as she hopped between countries.
I come here because I assume at least 10% of you faggots actually get off your computers.
Does anyone have any advice or first hand experience with such things? Thank you in advance.
Are you really whiteknighting for some bitch that got cuntpunted for being insufferable?
So what did she do to get deported?
>>1410579 >being so unsufferable being outcasted to the Canadian wilderness isn't enough

First day is going amazingly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Especially secret spots or hidden gems.
Awesome thanks gonna hit this tomorrow
Bumping with amazing BBQ
Bump for interest. I am going to move there EOY. Finding some roomies and probably getting some low paying job to support me starting out. How fucked am I? Is the city worth moving to on a temporary basis?
>>1409991 > meat in the US > amazing
I grew up in Austin. It was nice, but now there's far too many transplants, so it's less nice.
Indian leaving for israel for some business work, What to expect?
Ignor the picture
>>1410610 >What to expect?
A bunch of kikes.
You will probably be questioned for a long time at the border.
Don't be retarded and ask /trv/.
Seriously, now as for israel plan ahead where you want to be in your free time and you're good to go.
You should stay away from muslim and their villages but if you are just on a business ride it should be far from them, jews love tourism and know english as mandatory school teaching.
If you fly straight to Israel and not stop at neighboring states you should be set.
Yes, don't ask /trv/ because lying israelis like this one will give you false information.
