sup /trv/,
what are good US cities, preferably warmer places, to visit for a few days during the last week of december (dec. 24 - 30)? i'll be traveling by myself (because no friends)

i've been to NYC and chicago before. is Florida or Louisiana a good option for the holidays?

or should i just stay at home and avoid busy airports and hiked up prices during the holidays?

what reasons should i give to the us immigration guy when i travel? when i went to chicago, i told them i was going there by myself, didn't know anyone and wanted to sight-see, like check out museums, and try the food there. but he wanted me to "give him something more", and i didn't know what else to say really. i was still let through (i'm canadian, but a visible minority)

Tango tango!

Hey guys!
French dude just landed in Argentina 3 days ago.
Thanks to family I have here, I've already seen wonderfull things in Buenos Aires (Street art, Tango show, Architecture and some museum).
I'm heading to Puerto Madryn tuesday, by bus (17h by night on a big ass seat). Already got a place to stay there.

I don't have plans to tour the bay & peninsula yet, I hope to find a good deal on site.

I'd like to have a sneak peak to south (El carafate then follow the mountain back to bariloche?)

From tuesday I'll be alone on this trip but OK to share activities/travel (got my internationnal driver licence but given the size of the country, it would be ridiculous to rent a car alone for transfers...)
Any /trv/ellers on the road?
Also my spanish is so bad... Feww.

Ill be around till 09/11/17
So far so good!

Mongolia: The Last Hurrah

No.1309153 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Alright lads, the time for me has arrived. I'm growing up. I got accepted into law school, and will be starting next fall. I got a serious gf as well, and right now I'm working a full time job. As far as I'm concerned, this year is my last year to do some shit I've always wanted to do.

I've always wanted to go to Mongolia, but I kept pushing it off. I think the time has finally come for me to go. I've done a lot of research over the years, so I generally know what to expect over there, and I have a basic idea what to see and what to do. I'm here asking for /trv/'s help on some of the more practical side of things.

I will definitely want to go during the summer. I'm not totally interested in Nadaam, but willing to go if a good case is made. I'm leaning towards August, would that be a good time? What else would you guys suggest?

What is the best airport to connect to Ulaanbaator through? I know your three choices are generally Beijing, Seoul, or Moscow. I'd prefer Moscow, as I can visit with some Russian friends for a few days, but I've never been to South Korea so Seoul would be fine too. Beijing I'm not very interested in visiting again. Whatever the case though, price is king and I won't be too picky if I can save a few hundred dollars.

Is Ulaanbaatar worth hanging in for a day or two? I just want to get drunk in that dump one night. Do you recommend any guest houses or hostels?

Most important, I know infrastructure sucks over there, so I'm planning on taking a tour just to see some parts of the country. Are there any good ones out there that won't bankrupt me?

Just for the record, I probably just want to hang out in yurts and check out the steppe

ESL

No.1310154 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Who is applying for ESL? Its that time of year again to apply for the JET program- which is one of the most coveted and highest paid programs.

I tried applying twice to the JET program, and didn't get an interview both times. I probably won't even apply this time. I will most likely just get automatically disqualified for my history with depression and taking anti-depressants- the application process if very specific about depression, and even requires a medical transcript.

I'm also a hapa, half Japanese half white. And Asians often do get discriminated against in the application process. I probably wouldn't be treated too well either if I were to teach in Korea too.

Travel advantages of dual citizens

No.1308052 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
So I'm currently about to acquire a second nationality by descent, though they are both EU citizenships of equally developed neighboring countries and they hardly differ when it comes to visa requirements in the world.

I would like some anons that have exploited multiple citizenships to comment on the potential benefits.

I know that they can be useful when it comes to visiting different territories that have certain disputes (of recognition) but I'm wondering whether it's also possible to use them to extent one's visa-free stay for example.

Let's say I'm travelling to Canada or whatever country with passport A then stay there for almost 3 months visa-free leave Canada and enter it again with passport B to stay another 3 months. Is this still possible in this day and age?

Has any Anon ever done something like this and this and does it depend on the level of development of the involved countries?

What is wrong with portuguese people ?

Why are they so reserved ? They are warm and nice to you but they never let you become close.

Portuguese girls don't put out and are frigid as fuck, and it seems no one does anything other than spend the evenings and weekends at home doing nothing or going out with the friends they made when they were teenagers.
