I know I sound paranoid but I wanted to ask anyway. Does the USA have spies in Cuba looking for US citizens who are violating the embargo?
No. Even before restrictions were lifted many Americans went to Cuba through Mexico.
they don’t need it, they can read the flight manifests
unless they have some reason to care about you personally or you’re applying for a security clearance nothing will happen
Yes. The US govt pays me $2000/week to spy on US tourists down here, plus incentives. Free housing and dental. Greatest job ever.
You are not even in the slightest important enough that anyone would give a shit about you. Especially not spies.
Three days ago I booked an Airbnb for the second time ever.
Is it normal that the hosts haven't sent me any message ?
They're a superhost, and it's for June anyways so I'm not too concerned.
But I just saw a thread on the Airbnb forum saying that some hosts hated instant book and couldn't opt out.
I'm not familiar with Airbnb at all, did I cause some butthurt by booking somebody's flat for two weeks without a word (I did write a message during the booking's last step though) ?
>>1527492 >did I cause some butthurt by booking somebody's flat for two weeks without a word (I did write a message during the booking's last step though) ?
No, they are probably glad the flat has already been booked in advance for such a long period, especially if you already paid.
Superhosts are the more professional ones. They don't engage in chit-chat and run their flat like a hotel business. They will probably message you as the date approaches.
As an airbnb host, he's probably just busy. But if you have no reviews its reassuring for him if you write a little bit about your trip and yourself just so he knows he's not letting a weirdo in your house. Also a profile picture helps
What should one do in Taiwan?

I really liked Ruifeng

REAL TRAVELER PROTIP!!!
Used to Aussie prices? Haha
At HK airport now; shit is nice. Maccas is a lot cleaner here!
Keep reminding myself of Double Impact with Van Damme.
Can't believe I just paid $20AUD for 3 crunchy, stale hotcakes with no maple syrup included, a slice of sausage, a coffee and a bowl of shitty noodles for the missus.
welcome to airports
Discuss experiences, give advice.
No fucking politics or economics you faggots
>>1527330 >What are your plans when you go here? Any places you want to visit in particular? And where are you from?
I haven't planned anything yet. I would love to swim with whale sharks but I know November is the start of the season for them, so if I'm still around in early December I will try to do that. Otherwise, I'm not a beach person so I'm more interested in seeing the interior mountain regions of Luzon, chocolate hills in Bohol and to see Palawan. But really, I will need to see what's interesting to see there closer to when I go.
I'm from Canada.
Is there any restaurant in the philippines that serves human meat? p.s. must be fresh. Not trying to get anyone killed, but a good healthy specimen would be obviously preferable. Especially if I can pick the cut and preparation. Not worried about the price. Are there places where people get killed in gang warfare that an adventure tourist can tag along and eat the “leftovers”? Only ethical and legal experiences obviously.
This is how sexpats sound on this board
>>1527562 >ethical cannibalism >legal cannibalism
I don't know man but good luck. Maybe try China.
I'll be meeting up with a friend of mine in Manila from Feb 13th to Feb 17th and we would like to hang out and walk around. What's your LINE handle?
I've spent a lot of time in Asia, and I will be returning in Feb/March. I have 4 weeks to go wherever I want. I've decided to spend at least 1 week in Taiwan (Taipei) and I'm starting to think about Korea (Seoul) for 3 weeks.
I want to be able to live a lifestyle. I've spent 3 weeks in Korea already, so I'm not really interested in sightseeing. I'm interested in making friends and pursuing hobbies in one location.
Where would you suggest I spend the most time?
What would you suggest I do there?

>yes, I will date local girls

will you ever fuck off with your "do k/j/c girls like white men" questions? we know you're a virgin
The farthest left one looks pretty attractive.
White dress girl is qt. The one in the white shirt and jeans is not bad either, just average.
Considering every major city has Muay Thai gyms, no need be a bell end anon.
Yeah, written is fine. I'm only interested in learning spoken.
What are some good destinations for a friendless loner?
Only taken one trip alone and it was to Japan. It was fun at times but I also hated life at other times.
Consider that your dislikes may have more to do with resentment than your own tastes. It's fine to reject those things, but are you rejecting them for the right reasons?
You are correct here, I was in Miami beach. Miami mainland was nothing worth passing more than four hours
>>1525923 >solo hiking and camping
How are you not getting raped and killed if you go into wilderness and sleep in a tent alone? Surely if there's one just ONE rapist/killer in the area you'll be the victim he's looking for
jesus christ I really hope this is bait
When you travel, you take yourself with you. If you're a unhappy loner at home, chances are you'll be an unhappy loner abroad. Being in a different country won't fix your issues.
Trying to relocate for work and Indiana sounds interesting. Anyone native to the area willing to give some pros/cons to it? Looking for extremely rural and peaceful areas within driving distance to maybe Fort Wayne area?
Are there any places in Indiana where I can mock and humiliate unemployed factory workers? Not trying to get attacked by an angry mob, just some low key flaunting my status as an educated trustfund kid. Maybe some churches or social services programmes where they can set me up with a local struggling family? Furloughed government employees are fine too. p.s. ideally I want to get their hopes up and pretend to be a wealthy foreign investor, maybe call a town council meeting where I can announce it was all a prank and they’re going to be poor forever.
Lately there's been a lot of shitty Vegas threads. I've created one thread to rule them all. Please direct all other Vegas posts to this thread.
ITT we discuss the best hotels to stay at, and the best things to do in Vegas.
Westgate was pretty decent and had an okay breakfast buffet my one complaint was they screwed me and my parents over by denying we booked with them as soon as we arrived there. Not something you want to hear after a ten hour flight.
>>1526230 >Best budget Hotel?
If I were trying to go cheap on a trip (which I don't recommend, but to each his own) I would stay at Luxor or the Linq. Both decent rooms, good locations (though Linq is more center strip) and have some less expensive food options.
>Where should I go for buffets (breakfast and dinner)?
First of all if you're trying to save money buffets are not a good option. Most Vegas buffets are $30+ and if you add a drink package can be over $40. If you're trying to save money better to stick to cafes or fast food on the strip.
>Are there any tips for getting freebies? Not just comp drinks.
Get a player's card for whatever resort you stay in and swipe it anywhere you go. Swipe it for gambling, food, shows, everything you do. If you spend a decent amount you will see discounts or even comps on your next trip. Don't expect to see them on your current trip, that's not how Vegas works, unless you spend a shit ton. Play myVegas if you want to get some decent freebies, but be advised it takes a while to build them up. Like months. But there are some good half off and free things on it.
If it's not Friday or Saturday you can stay in a motel one block from the Strip for like $20, Las Vegas is the only place in the U.S. where such low prices exist.
I'd just like to second that Secret Pizza is very good, and very out of the way as well to find lol

Lots of really good advice here. The only thing I disagree on is it taking months to build up myvegas points. If you only play 10 minutes per day, sure. But if you really grind and play all four apps + the facebook game every day, you can get a decent amount of points in a matter of weeks. I've been playing for about 2 weeks and I've already earned about 35k points. I've never hit the daily limit either. I redeemed a 2 for 1 cocktail deal at the mirage for 10k points, and a line pass for Off The Record for another 10k. The next reward I wanna get is the two free cocktails at Off The Record, which is 20k. At that point I'll have used up my three rewards per 30 day span.
I cant wait to go. These next three weeks are gonna drag.
Did you guys think you were special for going to wash an elephant in thailand or "rough it" for 6 months through vietnam cambodia and thailand?
Let me guess it all "opened your mind" and "widened your perspective too" as you posted thousands of picture son Instagram doing the same temples and treks as everyone else while bragging about how frugal you were living
The adventure involves never learning the language at all, or going through genuine daily life, just a faux version, all while pretending you did just because you "roughed it".
Very enlightened. Just like everyone else who did it.
Can't wait to do it myself, but i'll be staying in luxury the whole time and making no delusions about not experiencing real shit, just enjoying the very touristy highlights while chlling in luxury. I wont be "roughing it" and deluding myself about having any kind of different experience for it.
Same, but it'd be North America and I'd wipe off Europe twice.
Stay mad backwater breeding-stock. I'd play up my countries glorious past too if all that was left was inbred peasants playing at nobility.
he's a retard but damn so are you wow
They are no better than the retarded British tourists who go to Benidorm or Magaluf the only difference is there are temples and shit in Thailand so their degeneracy feels more spiritual.
Living in a muff hut sounds fun.
Anyone travel along st olavsleden, or in Norway in general? I'm saving up money for when I finish Peace Corps. I've always wanted to go to Norway, and I'm thinking of hiking the Osterdalen path in particular. I know a little bit of Norwegian, and hopefully I'll be better by the time I get there.
Any tips or recommendations? Any way to not go broke with the insane prices of Norway?
Not OP but have similar questions.
Would there be a significant price difference hiking in Sweden vs Norway?
OP here. I can't say in general, but I see the same proposed budget of 60 euros a day for both countries
its not so overcrowded no, it's quite large and the vistas can be pretty grandeur so you won't feel crowded on the trail no matter the season. Not a meme trail either.
In regards to prices, Sweden is cheaper than Norway, but in terms of nature Norway has more mountain ranges, while sweden has more forest.
OK this is interesting.
Do you have to pay if you go solo without guide? How many days of walking is this, approximately?
no payment to walk a hiking trail.
walking from Femunden to Osterdalen would take about 4-5 days i suppose
