I lurking on my cellphone, so I will create this thread first and write later.
Brazil is far better than either of those. Brazil is just the only one with the whole self-hating complex.
Live here for one year as a brazilian (which means, get a job here and live with the paycheck) and tell me if you will not start hating this country.
I'm Danish, though.
Fuck you them. I don't care about your opinion. If you don't have anything to add, even a intelligent critic, be quiet.
What's living out of your car while traveling like
Comfy for the first couple days, then increasingly shitty
It sucks depending on the car you have. I'm a coupe kinda guy and it's doable but for long periods of time it will get more and more of a pain in the ass.
This, it's fine for a short time but starts to get harder after a while. Depends a lot on the weather - if it's too hot or cold you're going to have a pretty bad time. Also depends on the vehicle - being able to properly stretch out and have enough space to get changed helps a lot. You can make it a lot more bearable if you break it up with stays in cheap hotels every few days to get clean, cook a healthy meal etc. It works a lot better in quieter areas where you have less hassles with police, criminals, traffic noise etc.
Doable if you got a good plan.
I read an article about a guy who was willingly homeless and he seemed to be doing fairly well for himself. Worked illegal a few days a month to pay for his food and hygiene needs.
One tipthat stuck with me is to find the cheapest gyms to shower.
And make sure you occupy yourself. Use said gym or find free museums etc.
Pain in the ass im doing it now and i miss living out of a pack.......
Hello, I am trying to book a plane ticket from Sydney, AU to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. 8/6/17 to 9/10/17 using paypal I have been searching all over the web and have only stumbled upon Jetstar that accepts but I get denied for some reason. I am not trying to use my card just some funds in my account that I have left over. Any advice?
Just contact the airline.

>be anywhere >assume that most young people speak better English than older people >this is mostly true >be in Hong Kong >a good number of young people can't speak English for shit >a decent number of old people speak amazing English >not just "good enough" or "adequate," but "holy shit how is this even possible" levels of good
imperialism my dude
No, they really do appreciate it, and mostly find it charming how bad you are at it. It spwas some of the best advice I got. My American colleagues were always saying shit like "why are they so rude" no one was ever rude to me, because I wasn't rude to them by walking up to them speaking a foreign language.
they all know a basic level of english, but Sinhalese is what they speak to each other, sounds unintelligible to me.
because they are being flooded with mainlanders
40 years ago that older generation were forced to speak English in classes with pictures of Her Maj on the wall, after 1997 all that changed.
It's no shit they speak good English when all the older people went through an British based education system, Cantonese back then was something they only used with family or friends.
>tfw come back home to shitty job and depressed family
>realize i cant meet and fuck girls here like i could travelling
fuck. what do i do
So what is your problem?
To be honest, none really. I'm just being a cunt as it's an anonymous space.
You make a fair point but I think that when you are within your home country with a foreign girl, you are competing against many other men from your county who are also exotic to the girl.
When you are in her country, your competition does not have that same exotic attraction, making a much better playing field for yourself.
I'm slightly inclined to agree with you - I've had several relationships with foreign women, here in the UK and abroad. I dated a German girl for a while here, which was a fairly ordinary experience (although her "Ja! Ja!" during sex was hilarious to me) probably because I was on home turf, and it was pretty much the same deal with my Estonian ex. I also dated a Newfie girl and saw the other side of the coin - being told "Watch out, because most of my friends are going to want to bang you" was quite a novelty...
>>1243155 >realize i cant meet and fuck girls here like i could travelling
you are wrong. You can
Do people go there because they are genuinely interested in the culture, or is it just for beaches/partying/prostitution?
>>1236538 >sex isn't degenerate
go read some shindol then
I actually like the atmosphere, the culture, the people, the climate, the temples, the chaos in the city and the calm on the islands... What I don't like or care about is partying, beaches and prostitution.
Still, Thailand is worth a visit every time. I've been going every year for some time..
I go because of the tropical environment and general laidbackness. I dont understand why I have to delve into the culture of a country to be a true tourist. I dont give a fuck about my own countries culture. Never propositioned a prostitute in Thailand or went partying there. Partied in other countries though, but fuck it, I travel to leave the grasp of a society where everybody is watching you and overbearing, and I get to loosen up a little. I can actually talk to folks in the street and laugh. Fuck.
Open your ass and culture will follow.
Just joking, but ladyboys and more relaxed attitude to casual sex CAN and IS part of culture, so why not take the opportunity to indulge in it?
Not sure if anyone remembers the post I made here a year and a half ago about going to the canary islands to find a boat that will take me to south america.
So I did actually find a boat, only, it was much much bigger than I expected. Hanging out at the gran canaria marina almost everyday, you hear all kinds of stuff and one guy told me about the repositioning cruises that leave europe for the summer season in south america. This happens every november. So when october passed by and I still couldnt find passage, I decided fuck it, imma take the cruise option instead.
While less adventurous, it turned out to be an amazing experience and came out much cheaper and faster than volunteering on a yacht - something around 400 euros for 11 days at sea, if i remember correctly. no regrets, and met cool people on board (digital nomads, hippies, freaks, latino jugglers trying to get home, etc.)
I know its an incredibly late update but i wanted to share information for any of those who wants to undertake the same journey. you might get luckier with the yachts in those islands as i have absolutely zero experience sailing. however, this is not stopping me from looking for another boat all over again, this time from easter island.
im currently in chile and will be flying out next month to easter island. from what i understand, right now is the season for sailing the south pacific because of the easterly winds and it is just before storm season. the plan is the same - hang out at the marina of hanga roa (i read theres none though?? didnt really understand when i searched and read about how its difficult to park boats there).
does anyone here know more information about what its like in hanga roa, how easy it might be to talk to sailors, and if there would be a lot of them hanging out there on the month of May? Im a bit nervous as the island is super remote so i might have to shell out a couple thousand dollars just to fly onwards to tahiti if i dont find a boat.
any easter island tips then?
I know someone in the cook islands who got there by hitchhiking from french polynesia so its most certainly doable. but easter islands is a bit too far from the proper polynesian area, no?
>something around 400 euros for 11 days at sea, if i remember correctly. That sounds waaaaaay too cheap desu.
There's a camping place which is dirt cheap but completely unprotected, so if it rains and you have a shit tent, good luck.
Stuff you can buy there is expensive, but not more expensive than in Europe or USA. Definitely more expensive than in Chile mainland. You can bring 2x 23kg with LAN so maybe buy a cheap bag in Santiago and some food if you are bent on saving money.
If you are alone the best way to see the island is by bycicle.
I would say it takes a week to see everything.
10/10 would recommend going there
i'd advise against hanging out on Easter island waiting for a boat for the simple reason that if you'll end up overstaying your tourist visa-free stay (3 months for most countries) no boat will take you, and you'll have to return to the mainland and sort out your immigration first. So why not make it a round trip in the first place. There should be much more options to cross the pacific from the mainland, and Valpo should be more fun to hang out around than Easter island - for more than a few days anyway
This Russian guy travel whole USA country semi legal. Isn't this fucking awesome, this video is like adventure movie.
Poorfag going on a roadtrip to a 3 day music festival in Columbus, Ohio. The venue has parking for $20 but no overnight parking, so i would have to leave and come back every day of the event and pay... and i dont want to do that. Where could i park my car and leave it for long periods of time? I dont mind walking to the event but i dont want to get towed. The Stadium is in the middle of a residential area, could i get away with parking on the street in front of a house without getting towed? There is also a lowes near it but i suspect that they are aware of people trying to park for free during the festival so i dont think thats an option. Any professionals on /trv/ that can help me out?
There are a few apps around where people can rent out a space on their own driveways, typically much cheaper than commercial parking rates. Might be worth a look - sorry I don't know what the apps are called though.
> could i get away with parking on the street in front of a house without getting towed? Is that not allowed in the US? You can park on every street where i live.
They are public streets so i dont see why but i come from a town where the tow truck drivers are criminals

Here it's vehicle clampers who are the dodgy scum. I keep an air compressor in the car so I can deflate the tyre and remove the clamp by gently driving forward. It's entirely legal, as it causes no damage to the clamp.
