Which countries are not safe [for pussy white niggas like u]? Please add to this because I want to go to Latin American countries and Africa but I'm too lazy to research each individual nation's entire history and societal structure. I just want to avoid getting killed by stinky ISIS faggots, Mexican cartels, and whatever other African fucks besides ISIS East are out there.
Hey guys, due to various unpleasant circumstances I'll be in New York on my own on New Years Eve.
I've ended up staying in hostels for that week and don't know if I will meet people I can hang with so want to prepare by finding stuff I can do on my own that will make the best of being in NY on NYE.
I'm determined not to let shitty circumstances ruin what should have been an amazing time, so could anyone give any suggestions?
If you give up a job, there is no guarantee that you will get it back. Today's job market is saturated with degree holders and the company will just hire someone else. It's also expensive to go backpacking like this. Chances are these backpackers have to work in shitty jobs in coffee shops and retail. Surely their jobs back home are better? At least they can live with their parents/friends to cut expenses. Living on minimum wage is tough and living in a hostel full of strangers is also dangerous. And what are they going to do when they return to their home country... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My brother went backpacking from Texas to Canada going west to California, then moving up. He got his job back because he was a forklift driver for 4+ years and they needed more drivers so they gave him a tough time, called him a little bitch for leaving and coming back and resumes his life working at the company.
>>1054869 They are but if you are qualified enough in a certain field or fields then it won't be that hard may take a few months but eventually you can get a job. Unemployment rates are high for numerous amounts of reasons. You don't have to work for the same company for whatever your specialty is. My brother could've worked for many other warehouses but he chose the one he worked at before. If they didn't hire him, that sucks,but he could've checked around to other companies that probably are hiring... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What is it like to travel to world working at odd jobs in the meantime to cover your living expenses? Am I romanticizing it too much? Is it dangerous for me to do that (I am a girl)? Is it sustainable in the long run? Can I still earn some savings at the end of each month? How tough is the work involved? What is the best way to find accommodation? Is working in minimum wage jobs overseas necessarily better than working in minimum wage jobs locally?
>>1054836 >What is it like to travel to world working at odd jobs in the meantime to cover your living expenses? If you have some savings to begin with it's not bad. If you're going in with no savings it's going to suck. >Am I romanticizing it too much? Maybe, but most people do and make it work. >Is it dangerous for me to do that (I am a girl)?

Minimum wage laws are not the be all end all indication of a nation's plebs' income. Sweden has no minwage regulation and I work a basically unqualified job making 20 USD an hour, more in the evenings. I am fairly lucky, but I don't think anyone with a serious job makes under 12 USD. It's supposedly relatively costly to live here though but I doubt if those claiming that actually spend wisely. Income tax in that bracket is probably around 25% but you can earn something like 5700 USD... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Where are you going in 2016, /trv/? Have you already booked your flights and thought of an itinerary?
>flying to India in two and a half weeks, staying for a month (ticket is booked) >three weeks in and around Mexico City in March (ticket is booked) >will be gone all summer traveling around somewhere or doing an internship overseas (no ticket booked but I have $1200 in Delta flight vouchers so I don't really have to worry about it)

>>1054740 sounds pretty good. Mexico City is since a long time on my list, I should finally book a flight.
I have till now: >New Years Eve in NYC (can't get more meme tier but it's my GF's wish so.) >February 6 days in Havanna >my solo luxury RTW trip starting in March I have saved up for this year. 3months unpaid vacations from work ok, all tickets booked, all hotels booked. Oh I'm excited.
I just got back from New Orleans a few weeks ago and DESU I didn't like it. It's pretty damn small and a lot seedier than Vegas (a lot more blacks in New Orleans versus just a lot more white trash in Vegas) so naturally I feel safer in Vegas. Maybe I picked a bad time of year but I really didn't enjoy NOLA.
How hard would it be to get shrooms? Do I have to go through those sketchy Nigerians in Roppongi? >>1054692 I've heard it's worth going to at least once. Everyone knows it's a overpriced ripoff, but a fun one at least.
In all seriousness, you sound like a bitter feminist. You want to travel to an area with not many men? Give me fucking break, you're not as great as you think you are. Try Antarctica though, the only place as cold as your beige personality and bland intellect.
>>1054579 What a huge faggot. Did your mother forget to hug you when you were a kid? >>1054578 I have no idea about a place without men, but I would try going on an only-women tour in through Europe. Hope you are ready for massive feminists, though.
>>1054495 Swiss from Zurich here, Some general tips: 1. don't try to live in Geneva. Almost the whole canton is owned by Russian/Middle Eastern Oligarchs and rent even for small apartments is exorbitant. Try Lausanne and it's suburbs like Morge (direct rapid train connection to geneva) 2. You don't need a car in switzerland. get a train/public transport abonnement, it's cheap and reliable. The whole Geneva - Lausanne area is one big traffic jam on work days. If you need a car there is the thing called... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1054495 Be humble or you'll make enemies quick. We're chill and hate people bragging all the time.
If you like weed then enjoy, it's really good, not too expensive and almost legal. Be kinda careful but I smoked a lot in the streets, outside of pubs and at the beach and never had any trouble, the most you risk is a 100CHF fine.
Try to save money and not spend it on bullshit like tons of people do. If you got a decent pay you can save 20k a year.
It might feel depressing at first, but don't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1054495 Get your income tax situation figured out before you move. Even if you live in the canton of Zug, but work in Zurich, you will be hit with the Zurich tax rate. I have no experience with Geneva, they are likely totally different. You are still on the hook for American taxes, but you do get a good portion of it exempt for being an expatriate. Talk to an international tax lawyer and get everything set up.
Aside from that, plan your weekends. You can now spend a day and night in a European capital for cheap. You... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Do I have to reserve my seat beforehand or can I just go on the train with my pass? depends on the train. in france and italy you usually do, but for holland, germany etc. you don't.
>Does it work will on all trains or only trains between big cities, eg between Barcelona and Madrid? What are the rail links like in general?

I've always wanted to travel and see new places. It's fun, eye-opening, and lets you discover new music, foods, and friends that you wouldn't have otherwise.
In regards to what it's done for me, well... traveling has helped me build my confidence immensely. Before I took my first trip, I was a socially awkward virgin who couldn't string together more than a few sentences or talk to a woman unless I was blackout drunk. I was always afraid of getting judged, couldn't converse with strangers, had no hobbies, and was an all-around autist who did little more than sit home and play video games all day.
Now I've slept with about twenty women, have had a few long-term relationships, and feel comfortable in my own shoes - which is probably one of the best outcomes I could have gotten from traveling. I know myself better, know what I enjoy better, and think I've become an all-around better person.
I hope I don't sound to cliche, but whatever. Traveling really did help me build myself up and gave me a lot of cool stories and friends and things to look forward to.
I'm going to Italy On the 21st of December! So excited. But I need some advice guys. Hostels and airline tickets are already booked, my friend even got us a rental car. The one thing I'm having a hard time with is how do I book tickets for the Ferry that will shuttle us from the mainland to Messina, Sicily? We want to drive all the way down to the tip of the "boot" then ferry across the channel. But I can't find anything on it. Is it just something we can book once we get down there? Or does it need to be in advance?
Also, how is Venice during... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1054427 That ferry connects a well populated island with th rest of the country, and in particular two relatively big cities. I guarantee you there's no need to book in advance -- it's probably not even possible.
If you're going to Venice to meet locals, qts or not, you've chosen the wrong destination. As for the tourists, it's not exactly party city numero uno, but you might be lucky.
