The girls there look like such QTs. What the hell is this country though? Can anyone confirm it isn't just another micro Russia?
It's Mini-Russia with a more liberal visa policy, i.e. nearly nobody needs a visa if they fly in and leave the country via Minsk airport.
Now that the Ukraine is off-limits for regular tourism, Belarus is an easy entry into Russian-language post-Soviet states and the Eurasian Customs Union.
Belarus is Russia's Canada. It has a soft border with Russia. The women are hot. The food in grocery stores is the best I've ever had. Minsk is newly constructed and nice for eastern Europe. Soviet architecture, monuments, apartment blocks. Flat, lots of trees. Birch trees. A few castles & Brest Fortress. One of the best WWII museums in the world. As cheap as Georgia, before February.
it's basically Russia but with white people
>>2339157 >Belarus is Russia's Canada.
Thanks for that description, it kind of checks out!
Is there any market for doing tefl here
So what goes on over here has anyone been
Tbh not doing a good job of convincing me to stay away.
Is it cheap and easy to creampie there?
I am 28 white American and have 19. Year old Latina gf

why do you do it, glrs? (if there are even any on this board, stop larping faggot)
there are so many obvious downsides to it. stds, getting pregnant by someone you will never see again, someone turning out to be really weird when you're finally alone.
is it part of the vacay experience? being away from home? being free? are you secretly hoping to meet mr right after all?
and this is obviously self-interest but where would you be most open to meet someone for banging in a foreign country? museum, hostel, pub crawl, cafe, randomly on the street? doesn't matter, as long as he's not a weirdo and somewhat handsome?
What a shit thread lmao
Those are generally Chads so I doubt you will be repulsed

That sounds very specific
wow please come to Taiwan then became escorts
I want to knock u up then raise babies
Do you travel with a laptop or other electronics like a camera? Phones these days are so good I don't see the need any more. Mobile websites for booking travel, hotels etc are better on mobile in fact. I'm not sure an iPad even gives you much over a phone.
I have a shit tablet and a shit phone. If I had a good phone then I'd only have the phone. No need for a laptop these days.
Whats a decent laptop for that?
not all of us are wagies.. some of us own businesses which mean we at least have to work 30min-2hr on a vacation morning/evening.
even if i'm doing a short trip somewhere i'll take my little laptop
its nice being able to chill with in the evenings that you're not getting fucked up, or when you're doing the inevitable waiting around at the airport or on a flight.
that being said i dont really use my phone though, its just a chunky MP3 player with a camera on it being real
I take the current gen (M1) iPad Air with me on trips. It's a great media blaster for travel. Great for watching a movie if there's a delayed flight, playing Alien Isolation during the wifi blackout on the flight, and for watching porn in the hotel room. Also run the vacation iTunes playlist from it. Much more easy to tote around than a laptop and just as powerful.
Someone give me the QRD. I have 40k saved in the bank and am ready to make Japanese friendos.
False negative is far more likely than a false positive.
So another two year wait. Got it.
If I wanted to, just to do it, teach English in Japan, what would I require? If there are any people here who taught/teach, what are your experiences with teaching there? Is living in Japan that challenging or depressing?
I have 2 teachers (1 high-school and the other college professor) who taught in Japan for a few years and the HS teacher said he liked it but was only there for 2 years and that's it. >>2339284
At minimum a 4 year college degree is required. After that, you just need a pulse. They really will hire anyone since it's not a real job and you will not be actually teaching English, just repeating what they tell you to repeat.
Sounds kinda okay. I've been taking college at my own pace, so I'll make sure to get that bachelors right away and then decide whether or not to try it out
Leaving the West general thread.
I live in the USA, how do i get out of this corrupt shit-hole for greener pastures?
Everybody knows it they just act like it's not true.
It's a deception.
if only it were this simple
Holy shit. I am literally going to Paraguay in a week to try and join a Mennonite Colony. Tell me everything you know! What should I keep in mind before arriving? How do I integrate?
It's so hard to find any information online.
lmao just kill yourself retard. despite what pol told you, being white in a first world country can't be topped
Bangkok was good, its as if the place was still run by a dictator. they legalized weed now though and the weed areas attracts white people and degenerates. so, who knows how long it will last.
Traveling to thailand in november
Can you help me fill my plans?
I plan to book a room in BKK for 3 days, just to find a place to stay and search for a tourist guide on the place to visit the temples and palace, then move to some beach, I got suggested patong/puhket/samui, but not sure where to go. I have about 2 weeks, -2 days to fly there.
I'm mostly interested because it's a warm place with cool beaches and there isn't that much crime.
out of the tourist area for a drive through the mountains, and find a nice family restaurant near a neighborhood where the food is $4.
besides that and the beaches... phuket is really small
That is an extremely neurotic fear, i swam everywhere i went.
The truth is its not hard but you kinda have to go with the flow of everything and relax while also not being a pussy. The best way is to think of mopeds and traffic in general is as schools of fish, if you catch my drift.
It was definetly a highlight of the the trip, kino asf, went on alot of dates with bitches riding on my back. Problems?
You can easily die. Foreigners die all the time in Thailand from accidents, real shit.
I had a 3 day fling with a bitch that drove me around, got a tour guide of Chiang Mai. Find something like that or just get cabs.
>go to book accommodation in thailand for january >booking websites keep telling me most things are booked out already I guess the 3 month rule doesn't really apply to Bangkok?
Doesn't happen to tourists though, only farang who moved there and married a local.
Is it worth stopping at one of the tourist-oriented muay thai gyms for a few classes? I did a month of lessons in the US last year, and I think it would be a fun thing do in Thailand when not cooming.
Going to Hanoi for a month bc I’m sick of the fucking rain. Never been to Vietnam before. Not entirely opposed to cooming and cheap hedonism but mainly just wanna absorb a different culture and work remote with a high standard of living instead of staying in an urban American shithole. Anybody been to Vietnam? What should I visit/avoid/look forward to?
Saigon is a new city and open 24 7 basically around the tourist area in Pham ngu Lao. Hanoi is old and very slum like in the tourist area the old quarter. All the shit also closes early like 9pm in Hanoi. In HCMC it's 247
>>2338053 >Just wanna break from cold drizzly PNW depression fuel weather
Hope you aren't going to Hanoi in the winter, it's exactly that minus proper building insulation and heating.
>look forward to?
>vibe of the city for me
As much as I like to shit on Hanoi, it does have vibe
>How cheap/easy it is to find food, shelter, interesting conversation
Food no problem, shelter not up to modern standards, conversation is hit or miss, be prepared for some hassle and bullshit.
Zoomers and young millenials were based. Not much English but between their broken English and google translate it's enough.
I was there Sept and it rained about every day. Cafes and lots of little street restaurants were kino. Sit down, have some noodles or your latte, wave and say hello to the locals. If they speak any English thats enough to make a new friend. Wouldn't call it a high standard of living exactly, but it was definitely inexpensive. Wasn't looking for it but I did not see much cooming and other degen stuff. For nightlife, you have to pay attention. Some clubs are like western prices, others VN prices. I got 3 drinks and two NO2 balloons at under 300k one place, and the next it was 1m. The second place did have more of a club dancing vibe, not sure it was worth the stupid markup. Not even tourist prices as I was the only westerner in the joint, just an overpriced club. Look around for blacked out doorways and music you can bearly hear from the sidewalk.
how to find local nightclubs?
I spent a month in hanoi and another month in saigon. I liked hanoi better.
Everyone is gonna try to scam you with every trick in the book. Use airbnb and grab app for losging and trasportation because they are a 3d party that wont try to scam you with bullshit. I didnt get scammed because im a schizo paranoid. If you want a high standard of living working remote go to bangkok, and you can hang out at the mall area, its modern andbigger than mt olympus.
What's /trv/'s experience with airbnb for long-term rentals (1-2 months)? I've just booked directly so far, but the ability to just find thousands of listings via a third-party platform seems really appealing. The only reason I hesitate is many people seem to hate it (granted, many love it as well). What's the truth? Is there a certain way to use it and know listings are solid?
I too am interested in this, given that I've not used Airbnb since like 2019.
I've done this several times and it's usually pretty good.
Things to look out for: Housekeeping/cleaning: If you're a lazy fuck like me you'll want to make sure they have some kind of cleaning service, either scheduled or on request. Power key card: Some places install a keycard system like hotels where the power shuts off when you take your keycard out, be aware of this if you need your computer, A/C, fridge, etc to stay on. Building access/privacy: If you plan to bring girls home make sure there's nothing in the listing about needing permission for other guests or bullshit like that. Best to get places where the owner doesn't live there and everything is handled remotely by a company/assistants that DGAF. Parking/Laundry/Kitchen: Just make sure they have what you need. Some properties are also listed on hotel sites like booking/agoda, use these instead if you plan on breaking any house rules and don't want a bad review. Always look at newest and negative reviews to see what's bad and if it will bother you.
Did it for 6 months while hopping around the rockies. Most places offer some sort of discount over 3 week stay. I paid ~$2k/mo on average. I recommend getting a good wifi hotspot. It saved my ass many times for work when the internet on the fucking sheep farm in Montana which was supposed to be 1Gbps was more like 1Mbps
I've been doing this for the past few years as I travel & work remote. Sometimes AirBnB sucks, but sometimes they save you. There's good assurance in using it when traveling in some odd places. Hosts are hit or miss. It can be nice to have a local contact to help you with government paperwork if required or you want to extend a visa.
As another poster said, monthly stays usually come with a good discount. Sometimes you shoot yourself in the foot and commit to a place for a month that you don't like, though. It would be nice to stay somewhere a few days, then extend for a month if you like it -- but that availability is rarely there.
It's been very interesting to see different apartments/homes and how shitty a lot of people have it. Sharing thin walls, using some old elevator, shared wireless router between multiple family apartments. They don't even know any better.
>>2338849 >Power key card: Some places install a keycard system like hotels where the power shuts off when you take your keycard out, be aware of this if you need your computer, A/C, fridge, etc to stay on.
Most of these can be kept on using an old credit card or even a folded piece of paper.
Did that many times when I wanted to charge something while I was out.
This is a thread to discuss the Philippines and their culture, coomers and larpers are strictly not allowed and are advised to kill themselves.
Sounds good, might try but will be nervous to. I went to Mexico in January and that was fun. Wish flips would get rid of the requirement
You were never particularly good in English to begin with. Most Flips have no interest in being proficient in English. Hell it’s not uncommon to come across people who will outright refuse to respond to you in English, even if they may understand a little of what you say.
This is probably a huge factor as to why Philippines perform so bad on international tests, when a big part of their curriculum is being taught in English. I won’t say the would outperform East Asia if they toned down a bit on the English reliance, but it would for sure improve their performance and understanding.
I want to set up solar for my house but it's hard to understand what exactly I need and a trustworthy source to obtain it from. Sure there are all these cheap Chinese panels and inverters I can buy from Lazada and Shopee but I don't trust their claims.
From what I've seen the means to learn is accessible to most Filipinos in their youth even in public schools. How much they care about it depends on how much of an interest they have in foreign media and in the past internet content. Now you have Facebook, Tik Tok, and YouTube filled to the brim with Filipino language content. This development probably makes the nationalist types here happy but it's another thing that's hastening the decline. This country is increasingly turning inward both politically and culturally. The only development that could help stop this is more people now having access to the entire internet instead of just Facebook. The rapid expansion of the fiber networks could help the next generation become a bit less retarded.
Someone offered me one month car rental for 25k, is that a reasonable price?
Shit you used to be able to buy an owner type jeep for that much
