ITT Talk about if Russia is a good place to travel to, or even stay.
I like the language, it's easy, so I briefly considered being an ESL teacher there. Politically, I like Putin most of the time. But that's just me. And please don't turn this thread into a Putin Paragraph. Keep that in /pol/ Topics to hit are American relations with the country, (and what they'll think of me) the common belief that the country is strict as fuck, and generally good places to live.
>>1149816 I've visited Russia a medium-sized handful of times, I'm an American, and I'm not fond of Putin (by the same token, I'm not terrified of him, nor do I think he needs overthrowing--he seems popular with the Russian electorate, crooked though he almost without question is, which says it's up to the Russian people to decide if they want him or not).
All that said....
I like Russia a lot. People are very straightforward, often unpleasantly so, and it is an undeniably politically... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well, what do you want to talk about? Let me live up to >>1149838 expectations and, in a straightforward way, ask you to drop that meme esl teacher and i like putin bullshit in favor of asking specific questions that you can't google easily
Learn the language. It will be a day/night difference. Russia is big. Diverse in people and nature, as the anon above says. You can get lost in the endless taiga riding a bmw and listening to the brigada soundtrack or you can attend high-end parties in Moscow, the country can cater to all of your needs. Set yourself specific plans and follow them. My recomm is to google a "tzarist russia" tour for yourself. See the most beautiful and important buildings from the period up to 1917 when they fell to Communism. A large part can be done in westmost Russia (the part next... Comment too long.

Im spending two days in Dusseldorf two months from now. A saturday to monday. What is there to do in DDorff? Im mostly intresred in degeneracy such as clubs, hoes and drugs but any kind of recomendations and info would be helpfull.
I'm going to Iceland on Monday for two weeks and I haven't prepared as well as I could have. I'm going to Walmart tomorrow so lets assume I own nothing, I walk in there wearing underwear, white shirt, and some shitty flip flops, what should be on my shopping list?
>>1149764 Smartphone and charger. Good backpack that can fit as a carry on. Microfiber towel. Small pouch with basic toiletry stuff, meds and condoms if you're able to score, unlike me. One or two changes of clothes and more of underwear. Shoes/boots. One of these high end ziploc bags if you're autismo like me and prefer to keep reservations, maps and shit in paper form.
That's pretty much it. The rest depends on where you're going and how.
>>1149751 It's off season; Totally possible but you should come prepared. Campsites will be closed because the highs will be <50f and the lows will be around 30f. The glaciers, waterfalls, mountains will all still be there and there's nothing to actually stop you from enjoying it.
Iceland rains a fair amount and the grass, moss, rocks, all that crap might be slippery and wet so make sure you have the right shoes and jacket for the job.
>>1149672 In terms of city life, Seminole Heights is where i like to hang out when i'm in Tampa. Angry Chair Brewing is a great place. Chop Chop Shop and Old Heights Bistro are good restaurants. Jug & Bottle is a great beer store, one of my favorite anywhere.
People will recommend Ybor City but to me it is just a place for niggers and underagers to go clubbing. Not really my scene but maybe it's yours.
Fort De Soto is an amazing nearby beach. Again, people will recommend Clearwater which will certainly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>1148992 I just broke up with my gf so first and foremost I'm trying to get my dick wet. Secondly, see some nice nature and eat some good foods and not that naco Mexican cuisine (like that webm I won't even bother looking up). It was basically a cup noodle sprinkled with fritos, chili powder and melted cheese. Absolutely fucking disgusting.
What is there to do in Portland Oregon? I've been here for a week and have another left. all I've been doing is walking around old town but its getting boring. You guys have any suggestions on what to do?
What are some lesser known great nocturnal cities of the world?
I don't mean just the clubbing and nightlife in the classic sense but in general stuff to do for someone who tends to stay up through the night. Good restaurants that stay open late, people to talk to etc.
I'm on a 10 hour flight with a friend soon, and I guess that flight would be a bit more enjoyable when I am sitting next to her.
Problem is: We booked at different vendors (I'm directly with the airline, but it turns out the flight is a code share) and she's with some reseller, so we can't just simply book seats in advance, to get some next to each other.
We are also starting at different airports and different times.
She's starting earlier than I do, so only thing I can think off is that she tries to get... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1145579 I really wanted to give you an advice, but >remove your shoes
I was triggered. Either buy a fucking business or sit calm and silent in coach, it's just 10 hours... But no, on every fucking flight there are those fat retards with smelly feet w/o shoes, or those idiots walking up and down the row...
Or let me guess, if you don't get the seat close to your friend (protip:you still wont get laid), you will probably shout loudly all the fucking flight "HEY... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
But just for the record: I'm always freshly showered with fresh socks before a long flight and of course I'm putting my shoes back on, getting laid or not is besides the topic at hand, and I'm not obese. If anything, this probably applies to you, if you are that sessile that sitting in econ for 10 hours does not bother you.
Hey friends, first time poster here. Going on a rugby tour that will take me through Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Edinburgh. I am also checking out Manchester on my own afterwards since I'll be relatively close. Any suggestions for me?
I am an American and will be with my teammates mostly but will definitely need to get away from them at times and go exploring. I will have 4 days in Dublin, 2 days in Cork and Limerick, and 4 days in Edinburgh. Also 2 days in Manchester on my own, without my rugby club. I am going to check out the Universities in each city and the castles... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to do a sort of "journeymans walz" around next year as it is called in the german speaking area (Austrian here) and visit countries with craftsmen who are willing to pass down their knowledge to their fellows. At the moment I found a group of craftsmen in Latvia who do exactly what I want to achieve as a blacksmith (but I didn’t contact them yet and don’t know if they would take someone in). On the other hand I am also looking at other countries here in Europe with great blacksmithing history. I always wanted to visit the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A quick summary of me. I am a 25 year old Blacksmith and recently achieved my journeyman’s degree here in my home country Austria. After a lot of detours (mostly university) I started an apprenticeship at the age of 22. I quit my job because my former employer and his company were literally hell (for example, my boss would stand beside me and would stop the time it took me to forge 100 coat hangers etc.) and in addition the love of my life suddenly left me after 5 years. So moved back to my hometown ( for the apprenticeshipI moved to another part of the country and lived pretty... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That's pretty cool OP. Mind elaborating a bit? I'm from Germany myself so I have a pretty good idea what a Walz is but I'd be interested to know how the tradition has survived till the present-day. Are you gonna do it the hardcore way, just walk on your own feet for the three full Wanderjahre?
As far as Latvia is cocerned: >How is the country in general? Latvia is a comfy country, cheap as fuck and very sparsely populated as long as you avoid Riga and the coastal areas. Tons of nature, beautiful mixed forest. No mountains... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Aussie that visited NYC for the first time in June.
I'm a history/artfag so I visited The MET, MoMA, Guggenheim, International Centre of Photography, Tenement Museum, American Museum of Natural History, the Ellis Island Immigration Museum and the Brooklyn Museum. Out of all of them, I found the MoMA and (surprisingly for me as I wasn't planning on going there) the Tenement Museum to be the most interesting.
I wouldn't expect someone to go to all those museums because its so easy to become exhausted of seeing so much stuff even over the period of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've got a check out time of 10am, but my flight is at 7pm. I want to do more shit around town, but what the fuck do I do with my bags? From what I understand the airport and mall took out their short term lockers. Do you think a movie theater would let me kill a couple hours with luggage in tow?
If you are staying at a hotel, almost certainly they will be willing to hold your bags until you need to go to the airport. Especially if you tip the bell captain or desk clerk. Hostels I don't know about.
>>1150704 I travel 2-3months/year. Save up for it Usually I country hop, maybe a week to ten days in countries I've never been to. Do that for a month or two, and then spend one month in a country I've visited before but wanted more time in
Have you ever taken a flight before? Unless you're going as part of an organised tour or with a travel agency, it's very unlikely. You can ask your hotel if it does airport transfers, which most big hotels do and can vary hugely in price.
>>1150701 Jezus don't make the first trip in your life to Japan. Your ignorance will get you fucked. For anyone in tokyo if you want a bar with chicks I suggest "hub" in ropongi Far more chicks then men
I'll be going on a vacation to Ontario, Canada in a couple of weeks. We already rented a car but that would be our only means of transportation. The first couple of days will be all about Toronto and the Niagra Falls (also visiting family arround Oshawa/Ottawa). I'll also be visiting the Muskoka Lakes, Bruce Peninsula and partaking in a 4-day tour through Algonquin Park.
What do you guys think of my plans? Any Canadians who have some ideas for me? I've got some days unfilled so I'm looking for fun activities (been thinking of bouldering/diving/hiking),... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Killarney is one of my favourite places in the Georgian Bay area, so that could be cool to check out if you have time.
On your way to Ottawa stop by Kingston, which has a pretty comfy downtown, a beautiful university campus, and an old military fort. It's a nice place to stop for the day or if you stay longer is a nice base to explore the countless nearby waters/islands from.
Niagara / Canada first timer here, visiting October. Recommendations on nightlife? I prefer bars / pubs (live music is good esp. blues) over nightclubs, and seeing as I am travelling alone it's easier to meet people that way. Also I don't mind Ubering to another town if it's worth it.
Would it be crazy to go to Germany, specifically to a city with a lot of industry, and try to find a manufacturing monotonous simple job that would help me stay there and pay my bills while learning German? I only speak English and Spanish and my only qualification is a Law degree that would be totally useless there.
I would recommend to first try to find the job remotely and then go there. Chances are you won't get anything done there if you don't speak German. Also you might end up in the refugee camp if they don't understand you.
Though I know one guy who works in a sushi restaurant in Germany who only speaks spanish and english, so he made it somehow.
>>1150364 I won't end up in a refugee camp because I'm an Italian citizen. I've tried looking for simple jobs online and haven't had luck so far in the English language pages. Maybe the German ones would be better. But I haven't seen any simple street sweeping job offers anywhere either. I'm talking about the simplest kind of job possible that I could do speaking only English. A job at a factory would be ideal. Assembling things, packing things, something like that, and go up from there.
You only speak english and spanish yet are an italian?
Your best bet is a restaurant. Tons of local restaurants, in small towns though, pretty much have to close because they can't find staff. However, you need to be diligent and can't slack off. Most people either don't work well enough or they realize that even a simple job is serious business if you have to do it the whole week.
Or try to cold call large companies that might have somebody who speaks english.

>>1150238 >argentinian If you travel around your own city in Argentina, then you'll probably have the required street smarts to not feel too unsafe in Europe. What they say about the Basque region in Spain, is true. Tourists don't get the warm reception they do elsewhere, so don't be offended.

I've got a girlfriend in LA right now, I haven't really been out of state myself (I'm from Florida) And she wants to know about good places to find celebrities in. I tried looking places up, and I'm not very good at looking things up. (I'm fucking awful at that shit) And I would just like to know if any of you guys have been there yourself and if there are any good places to see celebrities in.
This is the first time I've posted on this board so, be gentle if I'm doing something stupidfuck.
>>1149995 I would recommend going to less places and spending more time in a place. You can't get to know a place in just one day.
Florence: the most famous museums have hour long lines. Buy tickets days in advance or go an hour before closing time, lines have disappeared, plus the Uffizi and the Galleria del'Academia are not that large actually. Michelangelo's David is at the Galleria. As far as statues are concerned there is no need to see artworks by other artists: they are all so obviously inferior... Comment too long.

Have you booked and commited to this particular contiki yet?
If you're deadset on doing a Contiki, maybe pick one of the slower paced ones that spends 2 nights in each city. On this, you only spend 2 nights in Rome and Paris. You're gonna spend half this tour on a bus.
Hi /trv/ I have a question. What do people see in Miami? I get visiting for a weekend, but living there? I feel like there isn't much to do except beaches and parties. >very little historical architecture >expensive >crime >everything looks the same Am I the only one that feels this way?
