Seasonally like for 3-4 months in a year. Thoughts on this, made it in crypto and I like to travel. What are good neighborhoods? Also St Petersburg. Thinking Airbnb.
Good to know.
Yeah I plan to buy a condo or apartment and learn Russian at a decent level. Thinking about Kiev or Odessa at this point.
I’ll probably be there in December and then again in May-June next year. Found a couple decent Airbnb’s. Need to scope it out.
who gives a shit about gdp lmfao
2nd and 3rd worlders apparently
Was thinking about spending a couple of months there to escape bong island, I can do some remote work to keep myself going, I just have a few questions.
How easy is it to get into and stay in the country right now? I have a UK passport and got one dose of the v*x and can get the second if it makes things easier
What are the restrictions there like now and do people actually follow them?
Which city is the best to stay in? I was thinking Lviv or Kyiv are the obvious options but somewhere smaller and comfy would be good too
How well can I get by with English and some very basic Russian?
Are any neighbouring countries okay to visit without having to fuck around with tests and quarantines?
When do their winters start? I don't mind a bit of cold but when it's below zero more often than above I'm probably fucking off to somewhere warmer
How is the food/booze etc.?
>>2105227 >Anywhere in Kiev you'd recommend staying or visiting etc?
I tried to stay outdoors, so don't know about restaurants and museums, but of course Kreschatik Street is interesting walking down to the Dnieper. I enjoyed walking on the trails there on the river with the churches and statues and the pedestrian bridge across the river to an island.
Food in the supermarkets seemed to be a lot of imports, although the produce looked good. I couldn't find anything really interesting to eat like I could in Russia.
Lots of pretty girls everywhere, but really a short trip is a waste of time for them. The Ukrainian trade is over really because the girls are jaded with Westerners now. Watch out for scammer girls who just want free stuff on dates. That's common. Best bet for coom is to get a lineup at a massage joint.
I forgot to say when you go to the Maidan, don't be conspicuously snapping pictures. I had some gopniks trying to bully money out of me as soon as they saw I was a tourist there.
Your testicles will suddenly shrink
Yes, be very afraid of women who approach you and want to see your passport
Is the Chernobyl stuff worth doing or just a meme?
Is there any big (1mil+ population) Western city - in North America, Europe, AUS/NZ, etc. - that is large, vibrant, active late into the night, livable without a car, and safe to walk around night or day with few or no exceptions?
Basically, where in the Western world can one get closest to the Tokyo experience?
I feel like it's hard to find a western approximation of this. If you find it, let me know...I'm targeting NYC this year because it checks many of these boxes: big, vibrant, active, no car needed. Just expensive, but whatever. I'm a software eng in my late 20s and might be able to grab 200-250k/year there
There are plenty of places in the US where you can get " big, vibrant, active, no car needed." simply by looking, Seattle has a heavy asian influence along with Portland in the right areas. Many midwest towns also have plenty of places to live like this but if you're not going to look what's the point. The goal posts will always be moved.
I mean if you're US and can travel just go to korea, it's open and you are allowed 2x90 day visa's.
I’ve lived pretty much my whole life within commuting distance of NYC. NYC sucks and you’ll be over it in less than a year. Guaranteed. Better NA cities are Montreal and Boston (smaller), but they still also suck.
What cities in the US do you recommend anon?
We officially resumed operations about a week ago but the crew have been on the ship for much longer, as early as June.

Short answer would probably be French Polynesia. We did about a half dozen different islands and even had an overnight in bora bora. I’m not even a beach person but I loved it, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
Honourable mention would cruising the fjords of southern NZ.
Long answer: if I were to recommend to somebody which cruise to take, I would probably say the Greek isles Alaska (book a longer cruise, either 10 days or back to back 7 day cruises). If your vacation is on a budget, you could do what we did and take a cruise from Hawaii that passes through French Polynesia and end up in Nz/Oz
The best contract I ever had as a crew member was Asia, every cruise was 14+ days and had two overnights, usually in Hong Kong, Singapore or Tianjin but sometimes in Manila, Bali, Taipei, Ha Long Bay, Yokohama and Kobe.
How did you get your current job? Do you just look for job listings? Do you need specific qualifications regardless of position? I assume that there are certain tests you have to pass, like being able to swim,
>>2104188 >How did you get your current job? Do you just look for job listings?
Musicians go either through an agency that holds the bookings rights to multiple companies, or they go directly to a company has an in-house agent. I found my first agency on Craigslist but switched after a year. It’s just a matter of knowing who to call and what opportunities are available at the time.
Other positions sometimes have agencies, particularly in countries like philippines and Indonesia with large populations of crew members, but I know some companies ask that you apply directly on their website.
>Do you need specific qualifications regardless of position?
Nearly all crew members have to do basic STCW training, basic firefighting, security awareness as well as crowd and crisis control; just in case things go tits up. Depending on the company, these are done on the ship or onshore through a maritime training facility.
>I assume that there are certain tests you have to pass
you have to pass a medical, but that is really it. Technically you have to have a working grasp on English, but fuck the number of times I met a guy who couldn’t speak a lick of the language yet has been on ships for years. Native-English crew members are well outnumbered by Tagalog, Indonesian, and spanish.
Thank you for the answers.
I always thought that working on a cruise ship would be cool because I like the ocean, but I don’t know if I could pass all of that training.
You’d be surprised who passes the medical, it’s gotta be something that you can’t cover up like significant hearing loss.
Also if you join a company who do the programs on board, it’s pretty much a formality.
You could work on a yacht.
Not a nomad. Not rich. Have some savings, am crippled in right leg and getting kicked out so being forced to travel elswhere within the state. Whenever I look on facebook or craigslist it is the same damn listings reposted or scams or a GREAT value at a beautiful home.... but FEMALES ONLY. Any other websites or groups to help find affordable housing for a college aged person?
go live in a dumpster you hoity toity faggot
Use Google. You don't even state where you live.
Seen this a lot in recent years. I earn big boy bucks and several times landlords chose poor college girls over me simply because they are women.
Just drove home the need to finance a home soon. It is what it is.

Sex and low risk of violence.
I always pretend to be a female when applying and tell them I'm being discriminated against if they deny me.
Here you have to send in your ID with the application.
In the next five years, I am going to vanish and do away with my old life and find a new one in the remote part of the world. What country would be best for this? I don't have many requirements besides it being hot, coastal, and having very few people around for miles, if at all.
russia is the same except that putinbots will spot you easily. central asia is the answer
my uncle was a crab fisherman up there, shit was buck wild gnarly.
this place looks fucking awful, jesus christ
It's only okay to do this if you were orphaned as a child and don't have any current attachments.
Otherwise just leaving people hanging high and dry is almost worse than dying.
Mainly because they'll never know what happened to you.
Don't be a fool if you have loved ones, Anon.
Even if they're shitty relationships, you can change them.
Anyways, I'll assume you're alone in this world.
Ireland or Northern Ireland.
I finally landed a job with a decent enough income and 100% remote that would allow me to love digital nomad lifestyle.
I have never travelled alone before though, let alone lived in a foreign country alone with noone I know around, so the idea itself is fucking intimidating, yet I feel like if I don't do that, I feel like I'm wasting my life away by not using the opportunities that are granted to me. I literally stayed inside and coomed the entire weekend and decided enough is enough, I need some changes in my life.
Any tips/tricks how you got started? I have never visited Asia and thought about maybe starting with Thailand, Singapore or Vietnam, plus it's cheap (not sure about Singapore though) so I can pay for 2 accommodations the same time.
>>2104890 >So life changing.
>No such job exists.
Then kys. Working is roughly 1/3 of your life, if you don't enjoy a single bit out of it might as well stop living.
I wanted to go back to Vietnam and to the north sometime around early 2021 but corona happened. I saw some pictures from a fellow nomad and it just looked amazing.
I've never understood the digital nomads who spent a week in 20 different countries. As an autist that would do my head in. I like to spent at least 3, but preferably 6, months somewhere to really get a feel for it. I haven't made many friends doing this, but I've dated a lot of women.
For accomodation it depends on the place, everywhere is a little different. Ease of getting an apartment is one of the upsides to Thailand; you just turn up and pay month to month usually. Other places like Japan are really tricky/expensive. Other places like Malaysia have an abundance of AirBnBs.
I usually choose places that are pretty trendy. You can generally tell by the density of cafes. Do some Googling beforehand and you'll figure it out. Sometimes it takes me a few tries to find somewhere I like though.
how is that even bragging?
try 350k before total comp.
also, lol web dev. who brags about front end work?
>>2104727 >I thought Vietnam was shit, but other people seem to like it. I didn't like the food and Saigon was way too busy.
Da Nang is way better.
Not him, but I also earn 100k and it's a decent amount of shekels in Europe

cheapest motels, lodges, cabins etc. you've stayed in the united states?
Looking for super cheap places to stay, weekly rates like 200 or under, daily rates like 50 and under, places you can just move and stay a few months easily without needing to go through all the trouble of getting an apartment
Never been up there but I've driven across a lot of the US and I never seem to notice anything other than chains like Motel6/Super8 or Extended America. What should I even be looking for to identify places like you've described. Is it those random cheap looking methhead hotels? I don't get it
>>2105253 >random cheap looking methhead hotels
pretty much yeah, sometimes you do find random motels that are cheap and nice tho, just travel across the country you'll find all kinds of places
then it should be easy enough to post an example :)
i don't want to post my best example because it doesn't have a lot of rooms
are you special?
if there are hundreds, post one of the other ones?
Can you chain a thai girl to a pole in some remote village? Will she/the country be cool with it?
Are you the anon that was asking if it's possible to pay a Thai woman to hand feed you tendies?
You need to breathe some fresh air. Consider leaving your room sometimes.
>>2105733 >Aren't you the same autist that asked if he could feed a Thai girl dog food? Why is this forum always the same 10 retards?
He also periodically asks if he can punch Thai women in the face.
Let me rape him before you kill him.
>>2105733 >Why is this forum always the same 10 retards? >ask same question for 10 years, get same answer for 10 years:
leftards, police, jews, muslims, criminal mobs don't like free speech. Any free discussion on the net will be infiltrated by their agents and defiled: methods of defilement include: increase infighting, take personal offence, argue over non issues, make comments that incite and condone extreme, radical, cruel, illegal, & violent behaviour.
I guess you'll ask the same question in another 10 years, 20 years and 50 years. Don't worry I'll be here to answer you.
Minneapolis has a higher violent crime rate then Atlanta. Why is it so high? Are the numbers misleading?
Is the crime all over or kept in the black areas?
in white areas. because blacks won't report crimes committed against each other. only whites report black crimes against whites
