anyone here right now?
whats the current vibe?
I can go in winter but double guessing myself because of zero covid insanity.
I don't think you even can? I've been wanting to go, but their borders are shut down due to covid, same as Japan.
The only people permitted are family of nationals, scholars and some overseas students.
If you could go, do it. I've only been there for short visits, but wanna do a long stay
any laowai who complains about "muh starfish" is just admitting he sucks at fucking

you fucking piece of shit
i wrote literal walls of text with all the information to make a call, is your decision center fried by all the cooming or what
Is it a nice place?
There aren't any movies about mcgill. It's just that montreal is way for some to "escape" their american globohomo circles for a paris lit. But they never manage to change because their world view is shapped by jewllyhood movies and instagram. If you know 500 french words you will be able to escape the anglosphere without problem. Quebec is different to every other place when it comes to one thing, language. If you know how to speech french in a quebecois accent, you are considered Quebecois.
Ok this is really good to know thanks fren
None of those are offensive or potent at all. Its impossible to use racial slurs against white people, all of them just bounce right off.
You could have said cumskin but that'd be too original for you, you fucking retard.
OP here. Christ, I really hope I can get a job here.
If I took 10k out of my bank account and stopped being a wagie for a month, I feel resentful about life

gday, few years ago I wrote short stories of the trips I took through a number of countries on my way to 40030 km by bicycle. Decided to translate them into English and post here since it was my great joy to make a few threads here back in the day.
Few bits of background information from the original thread:
>Two months ago had a chance to choose redundancy at work. That gave me an unexpected freedom and some extra money- not a lot by any means. Decided for the better or worse that this might be my best chance to cycle around the world. So I set off from UK two weeks ago with the route pictured in mind and a goal of 40 030 kms from that by bicycle.
>Did a 23 day trip across Europe 2 years ago with around 100 euros (2400km by bike and 2400km by hitchhike) and shared it here afterwards. That plus some other cycling trips around the edges of Europe is the extent of my experience.
It must've been built very shortly before we arrived. Also, the only traffic on that road is a bus that goes from Aswan to Wadi Halfa there maybe once a day.
>October of 2017 >Contrast between Sudan and Ethiopia is very sudden and almost violent for a white man on a bicycle. In the first 100 meters swarms of children are running towards me and shouting "you-you-you" and "money-money" as I remember my mid-day rest at a quiet and friendly shop on the other side of the border. Scenery has changed, too. I'm suddenly cycling up and down hills in tropical, humid weather. Recently built roads have carved their way in the rocks alongside which neverending streams of water run like tears. You better wash yourself in those- in rivers, no matter how small, they wash motorcycles and trucks. In order to wild camp make sure you are not seen. People scare me more than animals. The first night here I didn't manage to hide completely (there are people EVERYWHERE) so I slept through most of the rainy night with knife clutched in my hands after which I allowed myself a hostel the next night. If you choose the cheapest available accomodation it's barely better than wild camping- for example, you never have to ask directions for toilet since you can always smell it. Can't complain though- roof and walls are what I'm paying for as locals armed with ancient automatic rifles guard the territory and greet me with a smile: "Good morning mister!" Cont
How the fuck would he know? What a retarded post.

More like 'seldom traversed'
>In the mountains I had to cross on my way to Bahir Dar, let myself go and, for the first time since Greece, recorded new maximum speed entries- 73.5, 75.8, 76.6 and 77.3 km/h on four separate descents. Before each one I got to enjoy the landscape down below- vast distances covered by greenery make for a wild laugh and a barely controlled grin for some time to come. However, no chance of escape from attention of the new generation but started getting used to the stones being thrown at me when I realised that most of them fly towards me in order to offend not injure. I remind myself of a quote from Bhagavadgita to shine some light of reason on the otherwise difficult: "his mind is steady whose senses are restrained on all sides from objects of sense." Multiple English speaking business owners, which cafes I got lucky enough to visit, told me about Ethiopian history, corruption, ethnic groups and were all in all nice to talk to while I introduced the local cuisine to my gut.
Going to NYC for the week of Thanksgiving. Looking for areas to stay and things to do. Price is $200-300 a night or so for a room. Catch is I want it to be along the parade route so we can watch it. This will be my first time to NYC and always had a hate towards the city but now I'm interested in everything it offers.
We will probably go to several museums like The Met, Museum of Natural History, the Morgan Museum, Guggenhiem, and MoMA. I'm sure I'm missing other interesting ones.
We will also probably want to check out some of the cool building like WTC, Chrysler, Empire State, Rockefeller, Grand Central, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island.
We will want to see Central Park and I've heard Washington Square is cool also.
I'll be posting on /ck/ and /fa/ due to my interests in those things. On the /ck/ side we are hoping to do Per Se or Le Bernardin. Probably will check out Jacques Torres and Fabrique. Also would like authentic italian or chinese food. New York pizza and those types of things. For /fa/ I bought a pair of Enzo Bonafe oxfords in Stockholm, so looking for places around that type of style in NYC. I also will need some Hestra peccary gloves repaired because I don't have anyone worth their shit locally to get them fixed.
Thanks. Any suggestions for new York lol
that's 5 huge museums in a week
Do you really wanna go somewhere where people wear mask even when they have the jab
So probably enough. I'd rather have too much to do than too little.
Yes, I do. Thats why I'm going. I don't want to be around a bunch of inbred retards.
I am thinking of going to Amsterdam with the bros. The problem is that they seem to be too focused on the weed and the nightlife. What are some interesting places we can visit so that we don't waste the trip like that? Note that I am not interested in the brothels, and museums seem kind of a waste of time (in the sense that they rush you and you forget the stuff that you saw)
Utrecht and Den Haag are great and have very nice architecture and culture stuff.
Just buy a Lonely Planet guide to The Netherlands?
Climbing the Domtoren in Utrecht is fun, seeing the city from the top feels very inspiring. But I've been going to that city since I was very young, so maybe that's more of a personal thing. I never really plan shit, I just like doing walking through cities and doing whatever I want. In Den Haag you have the old parliament buildings, but there's reconstruction happening there currently. It's the birthplace of modern politics, so if that's interesting to you, then you can get a guide and get some cool stories.
what would be the real life equivalent of Roanapur from Black Lagoon? Just a tropical beach town that is essentially lawless and where tons of international gamblers, gangsters and outcasts gather. Maybe Sihanoukville? Or have the chinese conquered that completely?
I am designing a travel backpack, and a study backpack, I would appreciate it if you would leave me your ideas
Too bad it missed a trips
I’m going to say #6 is very important too. I will never go back to using a top loading backpack if I don’t have to.
It'll look incredibly tacky, but MOLLE webbing can add some versatility to your backpack. You can customize & retrofit your backpack to suit various different applications.
I'd unironicly pay extra for a bulletproof version.
>>2112428 >MOLLE webbing
I really don't see the point of this. Having shit stick out of your bag is the worst when you're moving through cramped places, and it's much better when everything is properly contained.
ITT we write a letter to the TSA one word at a time. I'll start:
Is there any specific laws I should know about that aren’t obvious? Anything cultural as well… planning on moving to NH asap I.e when I got enough money
Most of the problems occur in the south.
He means Americans that moved to your country.
I would suggest the opposite, speak to new zealanders who live in the US to ask them about what the biggest and changes were moving there. There's a reason immigrant communities stick together and find each other.
>>2112156 > Honestly snow sounds like a nice change of pace from shite wet weather
Yeah bro you’ll think snow is “based” until you spend 5 months freezing your balls off, then you’ll realize that rainy and 60F ain’t so bad
Hey Kiwi friend, I'm from CA but visited NH. I personally think that state is an amazing choice and I hope you enjoy your stay my friend. California sucks to live in btw
that's what I originally meant but I dun goofed. either way, the idea is that the people currently living in america will legit have no idea that the things that bug the shit out of you when you move here even exist, because they're actually mostly minor things that will irritate you or catch you on your back foot./ A kiwi who's lived in America, or an American who lived in NZ for a long time will both know what those things are.
