Where the fuck is my pre-trip anxiety coming from? I'm going on my first solo trip tomorrow, going to a few spots in Europe I've been before for about 3-4 weeks. I've been from Lisbon to Bangkok and would consider myself fairly experienced, I'm not afraid of airports or flying or anything like that, but without fail the night before I start a trip, my anxiety shoots up.
It’s finally opening boys! > Prime Minister Kishida makes announcement in New York > Domestic travel discounts will be introduced at the same time
> Japan will abolish a slew of Covid border controls from Oct. 11, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said in New York, in a move that looks set to revive the tourism industry. >Individual visitors will be allowed to enter, and Japan will reinstate visa waivers, Kishida said at a news conference Thursday in New York. The cap on daily arrivals in Japan will also be ended, he said. >Japan’s move to scrap most restrictions on foreign tourists comes as the country’s deadliest wave of the pandemic recedes. It also coincides with the yen slumping to its lowest levels against the dollar in almost a quarter of a century, making the archipelago an inexpensive, attractive destination for visitors from overseas. >Discounts for domestic travel will be introduced at the same time, Kishida added. After seeing a tourism boom before the pandemic, airlines, hotels and retailers are all seeking to regain the business they lost. > Kishida’s cautious attitude to opening up after the first waves of the pandemic won him plaudits from voters still nervous about infections, while business leaders have complained about damage to the economy and urged him to fling the doors open. >Before Covid, Japan let visitors from 68 countries and regions, including the US, stay for as long as 90 days without a visa. Visitor numbers reached a record of almost 32 million in 2019, slumping to about 246,000 last year.
How difficult is it to get high class escorts in Japan if you're a wealthy gaijin tourist who speaks relatively broken Japanese? I'm going to stay in the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo for a 4 week vacation in a few months and I would love to fuck some JAV girls while I'm there. I hear they usually don't fuck gaijin though.
I'm fine with dropping a lot of money on a girl, my main goal would be to fuck a well known starlet so price isn't a concern for me. Besides, here It's not unusual for me to pay over $1000 USD for an escort here in the States or in Canada/Europe. In fact I'm willing to pay well over $1000 USD if I can score someone like AIKA or Kana Momonogi
6 or 7 years ago this was one of the best travel boards on the internet. Now it's just 80% racism, people insulting countries with no explanation, you can tell they haven't even been there. What happened to the guys who took trains around Africa? The ones who made friends in Afghanistan and got to fire a rocket launcher for free? Where are the "real travelers" gone?
This place used to have really cool people, now it mostly sucks. It's sad
