Realistically, how safe is South America?

No.1241805 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm thinking about spending a few months in Santiago, Chile; Buenos Aires, Montevideo, and possible in Curitiba and Floripa in Brazil. Can anyone offer any non-bs opinions on the safety of these places? I understand bad things can happen anywhere (I've lived in NYC my whole life), but I kind of wouldn't want to get stabbed or shot on vacation.
While looking on the internet, I'd get varying opinions from things like "you'll get stabbed in broad daylight in Buenos Aires" to "you have nothing to fear, you can walk around at night without a problem". Does anyone have real advice/experiences? Is it okay to assume that, for the most part, I'd be able to stay away from violent crime/mugging if I try to blend in clothing wise, know which neighborhoods to stay away from, and learn a bit of the local language (Spanish dialect) I should be fine? Or is it better to skip S.A for now?

Sicily to Naples:

No.1241665 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
The GF and I are trying to plan a trip, at the moment we're thinking of flying into Sicily for 5 days then get a ferry to Naples for an additional 5 days.

Any tips for travelling to Pompeii from Naples or of must-see museums/attractions?

Also just what are your opinions on these two spots in general as my favorite thing to do on holiday is just wander around sort of aimlessly all day drinking wine and see what we come across

I'm trying to decide whether to move to:

Seattle
San Francisco
New York City

Same job, roughly the same total income ($250-300k as a high-level software engineer). I'm a single early 30's guy.

Which would you choose?

*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

*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.

>http://www.hyperdia.com/en/
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: >>1240799

How much do you pack when you want to travel long term?

For example, three or four months in India and Southeast Asia.

I want to pack light, but I also don't want to visit a laundromat three times a week. Or keep finding new laundromats, for that matter. How do you find that balance?

How do you feel about empty dorms?

I checked in to a 6 person room in a hostel for a week and reception offhandedly told me that there would be nobody else in my room until the weekend.

Normally that would be a good deal for a private room but I'm trying to work on my social autism and meet people. Would you request to change rooms?
