My dad is planning on paying for (presumeably) most of my vacation for my 30th birthday. Id like to go somewhere other than vegas (like my brother) to go and just relax, wonder around take in the sites and indulge in my usual sexual degredation. Any suggestions where to go? Not portland or tahoe because ill be going there anyway within the next few weeks. Granted im not sure of the budget im alloted, but i can split the difference. I live in california so something in a neighboring state area would be apreciated
Do you hike? Do you dine out? Do you like museums? What kind of sites would you personally be passionate about when you tell your Dad your biggest desire for a trip? Do you want to see San Francisco? Do you want to rent a car and drive up a coast? Do you want to tour estates? Seattle's underground city? Natural wonders? Redwoods (prolly gonna die soon), but maybe you want to go hear music every night in New Orleans and stuff your face all day. Where in CA do you live? Why don't... Comment too long.

>>1067527 I live pretty close to San Francisco, yes I hike and dine, i'd love to check out museums, but no personal passions, I live by the coast so probably not that or tour estates. I've been to the underground city, I live right by armstrong woods. And maybe something out of state. I'm pretty centralized in Cali (in the north bay) so i'm pretty close to just about everything
Finally managed to save up enough money for a small vacation. I have narrowed it down to Mexico or Costa Rica. Any recommendations? It looks like I will have to go alone since my friends are either in school or have no money. How can I travel to these places alone, be safe and still enjoy myself?
>>1067356 The "fun" of costa rica costs a little bit of money, because of the hiking, moving around between sites, national parks. I'd absolutely snorkel, cloud walk, river raft, and other stuff there. The food is deliciously more caribbean, than say mexican (think s.american quality steaks, and rice with delicious Lizano steak sauce) vs salsa and more low end chopped up meat of mexico.
The only thing going for mexico would be prix fixe, where you're going to get the most competitive airfare, resort... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello! This post/thread is about american behaviour/cultural differences.
This is what I, as a german, noticed about americans while I was in the US:
-Americans are kind but very loud. -Americans are very touchy feely. -Americans don't get self harming humour (when you make jokes about yourself). They always tried to cheer me up when I made these kind of jokes or sarcastic comments, it was weird but also kind of cute. Here most people would have joined by making a similliar joke about themselfs. -Americans are more spontaneous. Most Germans... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
We talk about our personal lives at work because Americans spend quite a lot of their time at work. We are the only developed country in the world that doesn't require paid vacation, it's up to the employer. Since we spend a lot of time at work we try to personalize it more by simply making it a more intricate part of your life, and if you don't you end up becoming very lonely and depressed. Your co-workers are normally your best friends for us outside our families.
What do the locals do in Amsterdam? I'm going to be there for a week, and it will be my second time visiting there. I just want to do a bunch of non-touristy stuff. Any good recommendations on brothels that are not in the RLD?
Going to mexico in a momth, will be staying in a fairly nice resort. Would it be a stupid idea to try and buy weed in mexico, or will nobody really give a shit since their supreme court is trying to decriminalize it?
>>1067552 Well, if you appreciate a geographically and mentally tiny place with a population that can only compete with the bleeming Dutch when it comes to being petite bourgeoisie, then go to Denmark.
And there are no real woods, or mountains, in Denmark. You could just as well stay where you are.
Anyone thought on doing a somewhat semi-impulsive vacation to somewhere random? http://random.country/ Something along the lines of promising yourself that you will visit whatever country is randomly picked. funny enough I got South Sudan as my first random country, so I might as well just start my gorilla training straight away.
>>1067310 South Sudan looks pretty nice from what I've seen on their state TV. Christian majority, normal western supermarkets, fast food chains, and hotels. Everyone was wearing pastel shirts and looking generally civilized. Their territory was once part of Egypt, after all
>>1067272 You have to have friends with you, I don't recommend doing this alone as many of these places can be dangerous.
For something easy that you can do alone, just walk along a railroad track or a river and see where it takes you. Your bound to find something interesting along the way, like graffiti, litter, or abandoned items.
I've hear stories of people who were able to hitch a boat or a plane. And wondered if anyone here has some interesting stories to share.
This is one I've heard a year ago.

Blagged a crew position on a yacht from Darwin to Timor Lester. From there I island hopped to Bali, I was going to keep going to Sumatra but I had overstayed my visa, went to immigration to sort it out , copped a fine(expected ), got banged up until they escorted me to the next plane I could get out of the country (unexpected )
