>I am that guy

Your fault for not wearing earplugs. Believe it or not, people don't snore on purpose. It's to be expected while sleeping near mulitple people you don't know.
I've actually had campus security knock on my door because someone called them due to my snoring. Or maybe I was screaming in my sleep or something. The people that knocked didn't seem to sure of what to expect. Then laughed when they'd realised they had woken me up.

I'd like to travel to France,
So let's have a France General

I have no clue where i should go, i'm sure i would end up at paris for atleast a few days but i'm more interested in seeing old medieval structures(castles , etc) and visiting a few villages like pic related

Would Marseilles be a good base point?

As a french i cannot recommend u Marseille, it´s not medieval at all. It´s mostly ghetto. I would recommend u blois (where i live, as u can find the famous "chambord castle", and some others cool castles) u should visit some small villages instead of famous ones if u want some medieval stuff. Paris is still cool , there is a lot to see.
Is it one of those places that practices Sharia law?
A No-Go-Zone for French police and non-muslims?
i've heard good things about southwestern France.

I will be spending 3 days in Shanghai next month. What am I in for? Any tips? Also general Shanghai thread.

Download wechat. If you are into clubbing my friend is a promoter there and can get you a table. Other than that go out and see the sights. Eat some weird street food and have some nice seafood at a rich restaurant. Go to the bund and see the sick skyline. If you go with your gf take the 100rmb boat ride. Its really beautiful at night and under $20. There's also a lake town thing south of Shanghai that you can take the bus to. Go on a weekday and it won't be crazy busy. Its got lots of tourist traps, but it is pretty cool. Downtown with city hall is nice to visit before going for dinner.
Interested in this as well, I will be there for a month-ish on business this summer.

What are some good places to visit that are not main tourist areas but are still nice to see?

I'd like to move to England but I don't know where to go. I've already established that London would be too expensive for me.

What's your favourite city? What are the pros and cons about your own city?
Also, how hard is it to find a entry-level job in a hotel/restaurant or whatever?
53 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Move up north if you can. Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and Sheffield are all worth a look. Good, friendly people, pretty cheap, good beer/nightlife. Birmingham's not too bad either and the second biggest city after London, and pretty cheap too.

On the job, if you have a small bit of experience then that will help. Go in to places, and approach and be confident. I know someone who moved over recently from Australia with little experience and he got a bar management job, so it can be done.

Good luck!
the north is shit, don't listen to him
The further North you go, the colder and crappier the weather. People tend to be a bit rougher and tougher, and more "common". Housing etc is cheaper.

Further south you go, the posher people tend to be, but its a more expnsive place to live.

Regarding jobs, good luck! There are many more people looking for work than there are jobs available.

I'm from the Midlands, and would say it strikes a good balance between North and South. (I know, surprising that it should be in he middle eh?).

Alernatively; Swindon is the butt of many jokes,...

> not giving your small child benedryl before the flight.
I had a short flight that would have been perfectly enjoyable turned into an infuriating experience because some cunt's princess could not refrain from yelling, screaming, kicking my seat, and disobeying her mother.
A baby's eardrums are not the same as an adult's. I've heard that the pressure change that is common to air travel is extremely uncomfortable for a small child's eardrums.
Stop being a fucking idiot. Babies cry on airplanes. Deal with it.
Not him, but it still blows cock. I feel bad for the kid and parents in addition to myself. In light of never having the chance to fly before I was an adult, though, it could be considered a somewhat privileged position, not in the tumblr SJW sense.

>Free wifi is common in most hostels. Also there's free wifi at 7-11 and Starbucks. Also the hub chain of pubs has free wifi.
Is the free wifi at 7-11 and Starbucks connect & go, or do they require you to sign up?
I've never seen wifi without a portal sign in outside of a hotel in Japan. No idea about 7-11 stores since I never needed to use it, but I assume its like Family mart where you don't even have access to all of the internet. I know at the 7-11 owned Ito Yokado the internet is gimped.
Been thinking about doing the 4 week intensive course at the coto language academy.

Can someone offer some advice to help me get over my fear of flying over oceans?
Are you afraid of flying or afraid of flying over oceans?
Familiarity breeds contempt. Fly over oceans, the fear will fade. Unless you have a honest to good mental problem at the phobia level, in which case you'll need to get some psych help, and good luck.

>Awesome food; consistently so in that, unless it's obviously empty or shitty, it's probably great.
>Dirty as fuck. There is shit and trash everywhere.
>Ghent, Belgium
Pretty like Bruges, but with half the tourists and a better nightlife, it truly is Belgiums hidden pearl. You could stay in Ghent and take a train to any other Belgian city when you get bored.

There's really nothing shitty about this city for a tourist, maybe the lack of cheap hotels, and there's only one youth hostel.
Other than that I think the cities policy on cars is fucking shit, they tax the shit out of us and there's barely any parking...

I'm looking for places to live or visit that can accommodate unconventional lifestyles, I'm thinking of bohemian type communities, preferably somewhere warm. I have heard of WOOFing which is different to this but similar, although I still want more options. I'm not very knowledgable on this, so any help would be appreciated
TL;DR where to go if you are interested in living simply with like-minded peaceful people and don't want a conventional job

I've collected some books which I am trying to draw from and I have traveled a lot in my own way.

I think there must be some underground communities in the USA which are all about Government Reform, Peace Movements, Anti Capitalism movements, anti-fraud. I hesitate to mention the name that came to me, but it is not my community at all. Maybe started from some old generation that liked Woodstock, Greatful Dead, Phychodelics, Liberalism. But also in Europe you see the Protesters against the G8, G7, G20 and...

Before I move to japan to study, I'm thinking about getting a 3ds or PS Vita. Would this be worth it for the Japanese games and VNs?
I believe the games are region locked, so you wouldn't be able to play a Japanese game on an American/European console.
Oh okay. I'll look into that more. I could probably get the consoles for a lot cheaper in japan also.
