Trying an experiment:

Were has /trv/ been, as a community? Here is a starter-map. It shows where I've been, List countries I need to add based on where YOU'VE been. I'll update the map every so often.

(I'm doing it at the country level because I do not want to get into "No, that fiddly little unlabeled district in Colombia is two up and one over from the one I was in..." I'll remove "trip planned" and the wish list on the first update -- this is ONLY where we've been.)

Im all down to do this OP but I opt that we use this map. Is it really correct to say that someone has seen the giant fucking blob of earth we call Russia just because they had a day trip to Moscow? There are so many regions so culturally different within the same country.

Post an updated pic and I'll contribute my experiences though, I just don't wanna do it by country alone.

I haven't properly lived there, but i've been there a bunch of times.

First question is: Do you speak Japanese?. Most people in Japan don't feel confident enough about their english to strike a conversation with you. Some of them will plain ignore you mostly because of this reason. This can be acceptable during a 1-2 week trip, but I imagine it can very quickly make a dent and take a toll on you after a few months.

Are you planning to work remotely? I'm in IT so I've been considering getting a remote job in the future, and spend 6 months there or so. Still just an idea.
Well. I don't actually. I wish i did but i dont. Ive heard that but i didint know if it was true. Im working as a nurse in Sweden so im guessing that finding work will be hard?

Is it expencive to live there? I wish i could work as an IT guy but i dont. Im not that good.
If you don't speak Japanese, your choices are not looking good. Even on IT, which is a highly globalized industry, there are very few jobs over there that don't require business level Japanese proficiency.

The only exception being an english teacher, there's plenty of people with ESL jobs here in /trv/, so they might be able to give you some pointers.

I'd had a few problems with life at home so I decided to take last year off to escape from it all and do as much travelling as I could. I'm not particularly wealthy, but I spent a few months working and saving up money, found some placements, and over the course of the year I managed to travel to nearly 20 different countries across 3 different continents. It was a pretty amazing year filled with new experiences, and it made me passionate about travelling. However, I have student debts to pay off and a feeling that I should begin to 'settle down', so I applied...

I'm 22 and wrapping up university. I've traveled to about thirty countries over the course of the past three years, all with money I saved from working multiple jobs. I lived in India, saw the Gezi Park protests in Turkey, hitchhiked across Europe, and just came back home from Colombia.

I have a nice girlfriend and a very good job, especially for a student. I still live at home since I don't have to pay rent and can save more money this way.

As you said, nothing at home quite compares to the feeling you get when you're able to...

I graduated and taught ESL in various countries age 22-26 and travelled a shitload. The actual job was shit but the experience was amazing. I do hate the thought that my life "peaked" and I won't have so much fun again.

The first 6-12 months back home were pretty depressing to be honest. Now I've got a career on the go and making decent money and it's alright... I'm 27 now and am just focused on my job for the next few years.

I was actually considering doing the same thing, even though what I study is completely unrelated to languages, and my career path is actually one I want to pursue. My 'sensible' brain won out and I decided to get some career progression first before accumulating more debt, but I do sometimes wish I'd picked the other option. Oh well, I guess it's always an option if I change my mind about the career, or decide a career break would be a good idea.

As safe as it's always been, which means most likely much safer than where you're from.

How about you not be a shitlord and instead provide advice

How about you use Google instead of asking incredibly retarded questions like "tell me which entire countries I should avoid on the hike through Central Asia I'm probably never going to take."

You are not "going" to hike across Central Asia if you don't have any visas or clue which countries you shouldn't visit. You are "considering" hiking across Central Asia, or, more likely, fantasizing about it.

I just completed a 120 hour online TEFL course with LoveTEFL. From January to July, I'm going to be travelling around Eastern Europe and SEA, though I'm not sure yet which countries/cities/areas I'll be visiting.

While I'm travelling, how easy or difficult will it be for me to potentially find TEFL jobs along the way? If I'm in a country/city and stumble upon a job, I'd be happy to stay there for a while assuming I like the place. How likely is it for that to happen?

I understand that doing so wouldn't be possible in Western Europe...

Bump. Does anyone have experience in this sort of semi-spontaneous job hunting?
bump,this is a thing i want to do so badly

I can't really advise on job hunting, but you seem to be in a good place to find work with those qualifications and experience (although some assessed classroom experience as part of your TEFL certificate would be better)

If you're from outside the EU it will be much more difficult to get work spontaneously as you'll need to deal with visas etc. and employers would more than likely prefer candidates where that isn't necessary.

How easy/hard it is to find a job there for an English teacher? What kind of degree you need to apply for a job there as an English teacher? In which city are you working in? Do you need to be fluent or half decent in Japanese to work there?
It's pretty easy if you have a bachelors degree and are white. I have a B.A in English, but you can have a degree in anything to get a job. I work in Osaka. No you don't need to know Japanese, in fact most employers will ask you not to speak any Japanese when you are at work if you happen to know how to.
What's your pay? What are your hours/benefits etc

Do you have plans to do anything more in life/Japan than teach English?

Are you a weeb? (please say no)

Hey /trv/,

I made a thread months ago about where it would be feasible to eat well and work out. You guys helped me narrow it down to Argentina.

So I want to go live there for like 6 months. Canadians get 90 days so I was wondering if it's as easy as doing visa runs to stay longer? I sort of try to avoid using up WHV's in case I fall in love with someone from that country/I get offered a ridiculously good job.

The prices in Argentina are high. Money is inflated, but the prices are somewhat like everywhere else, because: import has still the same price, and food produced in the country has to be sold at the same price it would be exported, or the producers would directly stop selling in the land.
But how can it be more expensive than Canada? Assuming I'm not there to work and I'm coming with American/Canadian dollars.... How could my dollar not go way further than it would back home?
Bump because you might be me OP. I've entertained the same idea of staying in Argentina for half a year to learn spanish.

I thought their currency collapsed?

Sup /trv/,

Last year, after I went to the Russian and Georgian Caucasus, I made a travel report thread on here, as some people had expressed interest in it before I left. As it was, /trv/ did like the thread - some of you may even remember it. And, truth be told, the travel report threads here are personal favourites of mine as well. Or, TL;DR travel report! I went back to the Georgian Caucasus, and made my first trip to Romania right before it.

First things first, Romania. Went with three friends, to hike and attend a festival. A festival we had gotten to know...

Anyway, we arrived in Bucharest and found it to be quite hot, the temparature being well over 30°C. Only took one pic to be honest, as we were mostly busy figuring out public transport, buying food and finding an outdoor store to buy gas or fuel (which we ended up finding in a small store called Montrek). For those interested, bus 780 and 783 will get you from the airport to the city centre, to Piaţa Unirii and Gara de Nord respectively. The first one is where you'll want to be to buy whatever it is you fancy, as well as eat and drink, the second one is the main train station. If I recall correctly, bus 138 connects the two. So after we had all the shopping, eating and drinking done, we headed for Gara de Nord and got train tickets for the overnight train to Sibiu. I was, however, told there's no sleeping carriages on the train. Crap, and immediate regrets as we entered the train. While it was clean (and cheap) enough, and the seats weren't uncomfortable to sit in, the train was very noisy, extremely hot, and the seats weren't exactly suitable to sleep - over 7 hours of discomfort it was.

That said, the train did arrive in Sibiu on the exact fucking minute it was supposed to arrive there, at 7:22 am. Somehow, I managed to sleep quite well - as the only one of our group. We had a few hours to kill in Sibiu as our train to Ucea de Jos and Victoria, our entry point into the mountains, wouldn't depart before 11 something am.

Sibiu - also known as Hermannstadt in German - is one of the so-called Siebenbürgen, cities founded by Saxon Germans during the middle ages. The city centre consist almost entirely of Renaissance style buildings painted in pastel colours and, as a result, is a quite enjoyable place to stroll around. Would recommend, and what I've seen of the other Siebenbürgen, Sighișoara and Brașov, makes me thing all of them are worth a visit if you enjoy historical towns.

Amusingly, we encountered a (former) celebrity...

What stores in tokyo/japan (im willing to travel far if needed) can i buy these fuckers?
I assume there are candy stores that would be really likely to sell them but I was hoping to find specific names from peolle here,instead of asking random japanese people on the street.

it costs way to much to buy them online (and there is a very small variety of them) and i'd rather just buy some on my trip to japan in december and finally have the collection i've always dreamed of. i seriously love these fucking tins.
You can probably find the candy in conbinis but those tins are collectibles even in Japan
