>>1036189 Shit, sorry about that man. At least you know you're better off without her. >>1036196 OP here, I actually made this thread because I also met a girl on Erasmus, haha. We're not exactly together though, and maybe I'll never see her again because we are so far apart, but who knows what can happen. :) Good luck with your relationship! Where did you do Erasmus btw?
I've been to the obvious places in America. NYC, NOLA, Boulder, San Fran. It's a huge country, and as I continue seeing the country, I could use some help for when I'm in places like the midwest, or the north west south.
So let's have a thread for nowhere america.
I'm going on a roadtrip, and some of the states I'm having trouble planning my route through are Northern Alabama, Northern Mississippi, Arkansas, Western Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah. I enjoy day hikes, but I also love a good... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey, /trv/. I am going to Oxford next semester from Canada and was wondering where I should go on my March break. I don't want to spend a massive amount of money, but I want to go somewhere that would be fun for a short amount of time.

>>1035588 I think it's designed beautifully and efficiently. Plus all of the staff is really nice. For the local weather the layovers are minimal. Lovely surroundings upon landing. I haven't flown intercontinentally so my experience is limited to US, Canadian, and Central American airports.
I was sitting in a hostel kitchen, eating an omelette wrapped around some olives and canned tomato, only slightly more difficult to make than a sandwich, drinking a tankard of belgian beer (the only tankard in the kitchen stock), holding my fork and knife in the formal style, fork in left hand. I got into a mild back and forth with an American, and he became convinced that I was French. It wasn't an accusation, he just couldn't identify my accent and seemed to jump to this conclusion based on my accessories. Usually people mistake me for being Russian. I'm actually...

>>1030728 >Sichuan and Yunnan Those are some of my favourite places.
The backpacker trail in Yunnan is Kunming to Dali/Lijiang and up to Shangrila via Tiger Leaping Gorge. From Shangrila, you can either head back to Dali/Li Jiang, maybe whichever you didn't do the first time and then head on to Sichuan or go straight there from Shangrila.
protip: Shangrila isn't it's real name, it's Zhongdian, they just named it that for tourists. It's a nice Tibetan town... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
All these places will likely very touristy and expensive.
Some places I can add to the list are Leavenworth, WA, a great german style village east of Seattle. It's incredibly beautiful but it reeks of kitsch tourism. Jackson, WY is great too, both have mountains cascading over them like in your pic. I really enjoyed Jackson but it was the slow season so everyone was local. Lots of cool looking 20 somethings and there's lots of money to be made there.
All those Colorado mountain towns are great. I really enjoyed Breckenridge and Steamboat Springs which... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I hate to fly. I was evacuated during a hurricane and the plane was hit by lightning, causing it to free fall for a few seconds. Didn't get on a plane for at least 10 years after that, and basically I only fly to Hawaii, I'll drive everywhere else.
I'm from Scotland and Thinking of moving to Japan. One thing that makes me worry is the weather, is their any place that isn't extremely warm in the summer? I don't mind the cold because I'm used to it really.
Also anyone got any advise for someone wanting to move their, what jobs are easy to go for, how people act to foreigners?
My fiance left me for a manchild after seven years together, work laid me off and gave me six months severance, I have 50,000 aeroplan miles and a no interest in fucking SE Asia.
I speak three words of Russian and less Armenian. I'm taking a 22L klettersack, trusty boots, and my sense of adventure and hiking 120km through a country that doesn't exist: Nagorno-Karabakh. I understand that my killer pantomimes and high alcohol tolerance will find me a house to sleep in every night. The remaining minefields are mostly well-marked, these days.
Afterwards I'll... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Stereotyping is something we inevitably run into while traveling, whether from our own preconceived notions of another or someone else's assumptions on your character. What are some stereotypes you've encountered, and how did you react?

I've been asked a lot of questions but rarely felt like I was being accused. In Europe, a lot of folks seemed surprised that I was a gluttonous gun-nut. One of my worst memories from traveling is having a drunken Frenchman lambaste my supposed ignorance. When it became it obvious that I was more informed about world events and had a better grasp...

>where are you from (home country and/or ethnic background)? USA, Black
>what stereotypes you have heard about your background by other travelers?
Will only list ones I encountered directly. Americans wear baggy tshirts and jeans, and sneakers. have been told more than once by what became friends that when they first met me they did not think I was American because I wore polo shirts, slacks or fitting jeans and casual shoes
