So, traveling to an event I am working next month, let the client buy the ticket, which I usually avoid doing because the generally leave me with a 7 hour layover in Duluth or some damn thing.
Client bought Delta, "Basic Economy," which does not allow seat selection until check-in, and as far as I can make out does not allow me to buy whatever Delta calls their "Economy with more legroom" before that time either. Seems odd to me that they don;t want me to give them more money. Does anybody know a "work around" for that snag when flying Delta? It's a East-Coast to West Coast USA trip, so not the end of the world when the seats suck, but still...
Also, since this question is not worth taking up a whole thread, and I don;t see a QTDDTOT thread, feel free to use this one.
just smile and wait for them to finish...
Anybody know of anyway to make 2,000 to 3,000 dollars by late August this year?
I make that in a month, and my job is considered low-end blue collar work.
I can, but you may not like it since it's cryptobased, but no gambling and little time investment required. It's a startup that focuses on real-time data feeds and you can help train the AI by doing various tasks (recognizing fake news, car accident detection, inappropriate content) through events which usually take place twice a week. It works like Amazon Mechanical Turk, but it's more decentralized and faster. The rewards will be distributed somewhere in the middle of June.
Depending on your speed you may or may not get 2k-3k, but your best bet is to attend as many as possible before August and withdraw the crypto to your bank then. If that's too much out of your comfort zone that's okay too.
Which places in Italy should i avoid because of migrantpollution?
I'm planning on going to Venice or Florence. I hear good things about booth, never been to italy and want to take a train down from Munich or Salzburg.
Both suck. stick to Tirol, or Lake Garda.
What is there not to get?
Venice had very few migrants in my experience, but a shitton of tourists of course, so be aware of that. Although that should go without saying.
Still a beautiful city, and worth seeing.
They want a holiday from home
>buy pack of cigarettes at a hostel
>suddenly easy to make friends, meeting and having actual conversations with locals
>tfw back home and now i'm addicted to cigarettes
I’m the same way. I can just leave it all behind when I go home but when I travel alone, I always end up smoking like a damn chimney. There is no better way to meet new people abroad.
would rather kill myself than vape, you fag
Quit now while withdrawal isnt too bad or pick up a vape and hit that 1.5 or 0 nic juice. Unlike what anons say about it, you do meet smokers by vaping as long as you're not a "muh clouds bro lets talk vape gear and shit" retard. More so in the US since they cracked down on vaping indoors.
I booked a trip before the civil unrest. Anyone been there recently or currently there that can report how bad it is? I'm trying to see if I should cancel my trip or try and backup through Costa Rica towards San Juan del Sur.
Not OP, but I was thinking about goiing to Nicaragua. Managua was a shithole from what I gather. Do Esteli, Leon, Granada, and San Juan del sur. Traveling through the Rio JUan to the Caribbean coast seems adventurous, or I might just get malaria instead.
Isn't Honduras way worse? Aside from Roatan.
Having traveled most of Latin America in recent years Nicaragua seemed like the most chilled country. People there are poor, but seemed ok with it. Dunno if things have changed, but it’s the closest thing to SEA in Latin America, insofar as it’s poor and cheap but relatively safe.
Ometempe is a highlight but you need to rent a bicycle or motorcycle.
...besides Ometempe, the town with the volcano near Granada (forget the name) is nice. Leon is fine although too touristy imo.
I highly recommend you DON'T go to Nicaragua right now. Massive civil unrest and roadblocks. Violent demonstrations in cities.
I would say: fly into Managua and get a cheap flight either to the Corn Islands or just a $100 flight to San Salvador or Honduras. OP, Honduras and Salvador have drastically reduced their crime rate and have awesome tourist destinations that are super cheap and almost no annoying backpackers.
I'm flying into Managua in a week. I'm staying in Granada. From what I've read so far, going out at night is the biggest concern.
I'm moving from Syracuse to SLC by car in the next couple weeks here. My plan is to visit a friend in san fran and then circle back. My budget is limited but my time isn't. Just wondering if anybody had any suggestions on places I should stop that are (relatively) along the way.
Anyone here live in Kentucky? I have to start driving there tonight for work. Should take about a half day. What's the shithole like/what should I expect?
Only niggers and radical leftists care about shit that happened hundreds of years ago, dipshit.
nothing. you'll be surprised to find KFC is really not that popular around Louisville and really the only place anyone gets it is at the airport.
Are there any local restaurants that serve unusual parts of the chicken (gizzards, hearts, etc.)? Believe it or not, I actually like that kind of stuff.
How exactly does one flatter the culture of a people who are functionally extinct?
I feel like anything we know about their culture today is probably suspect because encountering it would be like playing a game of Telephone.
You're bumming me out anon. I prefer shitposters and poltards to the truth.
Hello /trv/, degenerate criminal here living in USA. I'm planning to visit Japan, I have some misdemeanors on my record, and I have had my fingerprints taken before. I understand they fingerprint everyone at the boarder. Will I get flagged even if I have no felonies?
Unless it went to the Federal level for the offense I doubt it, you're probably okay if you didn't have any issues obtaining a passport. You'll be in the system for them to request your fingerprints but doubt they would have them on an alert status unless there is an active warrant out for you. Since everything you are telling us is that it is a misdomeaner, I doubt it highly. Keep in mind it still is up to the customs agent at the gate.
I've actually had my passport long before some of these crimes happened, it's almost due fur renewal, but that being said, there's nothing preventing me from getting another passport really don't have any felonies. I can also live with losing 2k on plane tickets, what worries me is being arrested at the airport for lying about not having ever been arrested and spending a month in japanese jail. I'm not sure if that can happen or not, getting mixed reports.
>>1409932 >what worries me is being arrested at the airport for lying about not having ever been arrested and spending a month in japanese jail. >I'm not sure if that can happen or not, getting mixed reports.
That's not how it works lol. Absolute worst case is the customs agent refuses you entry and you are escorted to the ticket counter to buy a ticket (I've seen this happen irl Macau). More likely scenario is they let you through no problems, because you don't have any active warrants (hopefully) that will flag you. You aren't meeting the Pope for tea or something, they don't have the time/resources to run a detailed background check. They are only looking for current/open law enforcement flags against you.
>>1409897 >I've also been arrested for felonies, but accepted plea bargains to reduce them to misdemeanors,
If you plan on trying to enter Japan, don't say you were arrested for felonies if you weren't convicted of them. Ask the embassy if your actual convictions are okay.
Say as little as you need to say, but also don't lie. Japanese police are nice, but they don't fuck around. I have a friend who simply forgot to fill out the customs form when he entered the country. He got detained for a few hours and they interrogated him about what drugs he was smuggling. This is a clean cut dude who's never done anything wrong in his life, but they still hauled him off to a tiny room and tried to see if he'd break. Eventually the police apologized and let him go, but if he'd so much as had a piece of beef jerky on him, he would've been in deep shit.
Remember that police can detain you for quite a while without being officially charged. If they find out you tried lying your way into the country and you were convicted of absolutely anything, they will not be kind.
What about the other way around?
Does USA have issues with letting someone travel through, if they were given a drugs caution by UK police? Going through mexico border, if that has any effect on it

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution.
Japan's sex industry is almost completely inaccessible to foreigners who do not speak Japanese. What is available can generally be found in the following links
http://rockitrisingsun.com/ > http://hentaitokyo.com/
Note that most of these companies are owned by the same group so behave.
*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.
Please refer to the old thread while it's still up.
Only 24 hours left in Tokyo. I've been here two weeks and seen like 5 different cities. Any last-minute Tokyo shit I should do/eat that isn't going to be on TripAdvisor?
So what do you even mean right there?
Which place do you recommend?
Somewhat like this, so yes.
nani the fuck are you even trying to say? only places i know that serve foreigners are paradise and darling harbour.
Hello all, I'm a mid 20s professional taking a sabbatical for 2 months in a few weeks to go travel around the world after growing sick of the daily grind in my company. I haven't traveled internationally for over half my life and I feel like I'm not growing as much as I should be. My questions to /trv/ would the following:
-Did traveling around change your life in some form?
-Favorite countries visited and why?
-How would you budget the $12000, I would like to travel around mostly Europe and Asia. Where to even start? I drafted a plan starting from Iceland, but not sure what's the best general course.
General survival tips and whatnot would be greatly appreciated.
OP here, I ideally want to travel to some meme parts of Europe but explore some of the underrated countries as well. The wide majority of my budget will probably just be travel, I will be frugal with hostels and maybe airbnb in the cheaper countries. I live in NYC atm and the ticket to paris/iceland is dirt cheap but if its too similar to NY then I probably will start somewhere else.
Places I want to visit include Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, Japan, HK, Croatia, Poland, Czech Republic, and more.
>>1409086 >somewhere expensive like Turkmenistan and Mongolia
Mongolia is actually really cheap once you're there.
It's just hard to get to.
Pick 3 of those countries and go. You don't want to spend the time you have in airports, train stations, etc, only seeing the main tourist shit.
I think most people on this board would offer up similar advice, but you really are better off limiting how many actual countries your attempting to see, and get to enjoy the time you do spend there.
Especially in Asia. In Europe you can be in a another city/country in a few hrs so its not such a big deal. However in Asia roads/highways/traffic/trains, can be a lot slower than you might imagine. Its pretty normal to spend whole days travelling between relatively short distances. So if you have aspirations of seeing to much too quickly, you'll only end up spending half your time in transit between places.
>>1408723 >he has fucking 12k for two months
he has 12k - it doesn't mean he has to piss 12k away in 2 months, brainlet. stay poor.
hey /trv/ I'm going to Charleston SC for like 4-5 days. For anyone that's been there before, is there any cool things to check out or just any recommendations about the area in general?
Not sure your thoughts on Anthony Bourdain but he had a visit there for his show on CNN.
All the food looked really good so I would check out Rodney Scott BBQ or Husk for traditional Southern Food
Rodney Scott looks pretty good, I'll have to give it a shot. Husk looks more upscale.
You could do plantation tours , go to fort sumter, tour some of the row houses in the battery..they have a small but nice aquarium. Maybe take.a ghost tour carrage ride, or just walk around downtown enjoying the scenery
He should also hit up the old slave market, and maybe do a ghost tour at night.
one last bump before i leave
