Not OP, but going to Colombia. Were you able to interact with locals a lot? I really want to work on my Spanish while traveling, so I'd rather talk to them than drunk Australians

Have you ever fallen in love whilst travelling/on your gap year/year abroad, or know someone who has?

Was it just a short and sweet romance? Are you still in touch, or maybe doing long distance or have even married and are now living together?

Tell me your stories!

I can say that I met my ex on a trip, because I smoked a blunt haha
I was with here for 3 years, cheated on me twice
I met my current GF on Erasmus. Currently we're in a long-distance relationship, we see each other every two-three months.

Erasmus is a bit like pic related. Everybody is far more... open than they probably would be at home.
Shit, sorry about that man. At least you know you're better off without her.
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?

Do you mean in the UK or are you willing to get on a plane?

You have very good airport access, so lots of cheap European destinations.

Also what's so great about MSP?
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...

You have a very strange way of writing. Reminds me of Murakami almost.
while in Syria, people regularly chanted "Death To America!" while I was around. Me, being American, purposely mistook my own identity on these occasions, and told them I was from Chile.

Holy shit that's true.

>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...

Kingston, Ontario is a cool town. Lots of limestone buildings and old architecture
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...

Have you seen the price for the eithad residence class, it costs 21,000 USD for a flight from Dubai to London, you get your own butler and a separate bathroom, living room and bedroom.
Generally I fly British Airways cause I work for them therefore get discount. I agree that landing and taking off are the best part by far, although i always love the mid-flight turbulence.
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.

Will you report dyring the trip? What if u die, murdered, kidnapped or other stuff?
OP here, switched computers.

Reporting during will be hard, since I've no way to get pictures off my camera (though mobile data is only $15/gb). I'll probably be incognito till I get back, like OreTrain guy.

Being murdered or kidnapped is extremely unlikely, dying of alcohol poisoning from the local delicious fruit vodka is more likely.

Stepping on a landmine or cluster bomb is possible.
Will you look for girls, whores, escorts and more? Any drug intention?

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...

>>what stereotypes

For being french:
"Ah, l'amour!". US/UK Girls often made me fake a french accent, seemed a bit frustrating to them that I spoke a very neutral English.

Continental european gals don't give a fuck about us, but boy do british and american chicks have a romanticized view of the french.

Funnily enough most UK/US guys despise the french for being a douche, a fag and whatever.
