i’m in australia rn, can’t go anywhere (not even NZ, which our leader graciously allowed us to visit briefly last year) as soon as I can i’m leaving this country for good. there is no hope for australia at this point. where is a good place to go?
Looking for a safe, nice country in either Eastern Europe, Baltics or Asia that's open for US unvaxxed travelers where I can rent a great place/stay in a hotel for less than $850 per month while I grow my e-commerce businesses for 6 mo. to 1 year.
I was thinking: Greece, Thailand, Georgia, (western) Ukraine. Thoughts?
Foreign visitors that are permitted to enter Thailand from approved countries are required to have the following:
- An approved Certificate of Entry (COE)
- Proof of a COVID-19 insurance plan that covers the entire duration of their trip with a minimum coverage of $100,000
- The Thailand Plus app in order to show a QR code upon entry
- Arrangements to stay at an Alternative State Quarantine (ASQ)
Let's have some fun /trv/estites. You awake one day to find a magic portal in your living room that can instantly transport you to any 10 locations on Earth (you have to get back normally, the portal comes with a magic passport that resolves all legal issues) what do you pick?
Mine >Salton City, California >Yakutsk, Siberia >Chongqing, China >Pattaya, Thailand >Bahia De Los Angeles, Mexico >Tri Cities, Washington State >Prince Edward Island, Canada >That weird border area between Florida and Alabama >Coober Pedy, Australia >Shibuya Crossing Japan
*and an honorary mention to Donegal County, Ireland and Pyongyang, North Korea who didn't make the cut :(
Vacationing on the Croatian coast this year. Beaches there are awesome so I go swimming pretty often. It's not too crowded, especially these days, when most people have pulled back home.
I got to the beach the first day and I saw this girl just casually walk into the water with all of her clothes on and start swimming.
This wasn't just wearing a T-shirt for sun protection, we're talking layers of clothing, jeans, tennis shoes. She swam for a while, then walked out of the sea, picked up her beach bag, went to the changing stall, changed into different clothes and left.
She was pretty, probs early twenties, and wasn't fat or anything, so I doubt it's some kind of insecurity. Also, that wouldn't explain her going swimming in sneakers.
Anyway, I got to the beach the next day and just as I was about to leave, she got there too and headed straight for the water again. She was wearing a slightly different clothes, but definitely not something passable for a swimsuit.
I've been going swimming to that beach for about a week now, and she'd show up most of those days, every time going swimming in a different outfit - T-shirts, hoodies, etc. She'd walk into the water fully dressed and then swim or sit in the shallows like it's perfectly normal.
I found it a bit bizarre, and no one at the beach seemed shocked by this. People mostly glanced at her and then went about their business.
I'm too autistic to approach her and ask her about it, but this is pretty intriguing.
Is this a religious thing or something? Why would anyone do this?
(pic related not her, but close to what I've been seeing)
I've noticed there's a lot of high quality white girls in the PNW, around Portland and Seattle. Same with North Texas. Northeast seems pretty lacking, West Coast has some but they're a minority. Where else are the white qts at?
37 year old guy here. Had inheritance, made money from stocks/crypto, worked for dad's friend financial firm, retired now.
I spent pretty much off of my late 20's to mid 30's traveling around Europe and Asia cooming my brain away. I've done most of the luxurious stuff, as well as many cool local things that girls took me on, but I've just hit a phase in my life where I want to see something else, maybe something more meaningful.
I want to see holy sites that might be off the obvious path, I want to see what the world is really like (don't want to go anywhere too dangerous though, I "look" rich so I'm worried about kidnapping).
I want to see adventure, tombs, holy sites, religious monuments, etc. Or famous spiritual places, or places that feel like distant worlds.
By the way I have no financial advice so please don't ask. You basically need a lot of money invested over a period of time and you're guaranteed to win, any kind of yolo on options/crypto is gambling. This is why the rich stay rich or get richer, and poor people seldom break out (though it's possible)
