Not sure how much interest you guys have in local traditional music but just thought I'd try a cross-board thread for it, see what people like?

Anyone immerse themselves in local music tradition on the road?

Here's some of the songs I've been spammed to death with the past time




Damn... I'm sorry.

I went on a musical exploration of Central America and the Caribbean lately and found some terrible stuff like that, can't believe people willingly choose to listen to it. Oh and Soca, just why?

Do they have anything like this in America? At least size and pricewise?

We do indeed have both Jail Cells and Janitor's Closets in America -- not sure which one that is, though, in OP's picture.
Is that housing? I would need double that side at least honestly.
It's cheap rooms in japan for the homeless as an alternative. They are small and cheap, not really meant to be hung out in a lot imo.

I currently have over $91000 in my savings and investments so I can give you an actual reply to this instead of just dreaming...

I'm going to spend the next 7 years of my life traveling almost full time but also mixing it with work in other countries. In the next year I'm planning on touring around North America on my motorbike before quitting my job. Afterwards doing a year of work-holiday jobs in either NZ or Australia and then traveling in that region for as long as I feel like it. Then move on to backpacking around East and South-East Asia for a year and then work for a year somewhere over there teaching English before spending another year traveling through South Asia and Iran. So at that point, 6-7 years from now I'll be in Europe where I plan on getting a masters degree and then who knows. I'll be in my 30s by then, I'll probably look for a more stable job and try to start a family, either in Europe or back here in Canada (dual citizen).
How did a twenty-something amass so much savings?
If I had unlimited cash I would do one of those 8-10 month around the world cruises with my wife. It would take a lot more than 100K.

Brojob, baby!

I think if you're trying to have a time like that you should talk to a concierge service, just google "vegas concierge". they can get you whatever you need for the right price. you can try to ask any cab driver or doorman too, no one gives a fuck the worst thing someone will say is "sorry bro don't know where to get that". Also, you don't need a bodyguard, that's for sure. If anything that would make you even more of a target. Try to stay low-key if possible. The Bellagio is where ballers stay BTW.

How did you get certified?

Hey /trv/

Say I wanted to go across Africa in a school bus that I'm living in.

What kinds of legal things would I have to consider in regards to crossing boarders, visas and insurance?
44 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Own or rent the bus? Rentals may have restrictions on where you can take them.

Other than that, you'd need to know the same visa rules as anybody else, and be prepared for dicking around with customs for an extended time, or bribing to be cut loose, or both.

Insurance is a question you'd get best answers by contacting your carrier.
Aside from a valid registration and insurance (which will probably be the trickiest part since insurance that's valid in one country may not be valid in another), you'll probably be required to carry a Carnet de Passages.

It's a bond document that certifies that you are the owner of the vehicle and you're not going to sell it or use it to do business while you're in their country.

I'd also expect to get scrutinized quite a lot at border crossings, since it's a bus they...

Hey /trv/elers

So I'm planning my next trip to Asia and not sure where exactly I will go yet but was considering these places: Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea.

I've been to Asia once, to the Philippines and Hong Kong. I'm a traveler noob and only been to Asia and Eastern Europe once. Some questions I have are out of the options which would suit a beginner more? I like to see the historical sights, also enjoy some night life but it's not my main focus. Not into fucking whores either, nope. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these...

Burma, cambodia, vietnam, laos. Thailand is a shithole full,of lowlifes, .burma and cambodia got very nice beaches and astonishing historical sights ( bagan, siem reap for example)
For the visa, iam not sure, normally the visa lasts a njmber of days , the departure and arrival time you can possibly just file out in the documents you get on the airplane.
You can be early on a visa but not late. Being late to arrive will get you turned around. Being late to leave is ok if it's only a day or two (they don't shit themselves if you missed a train or a flight was sold-out or something, explain the story and it will most likely be ok), you get fined for a few more and fined, deported and barred for too many.

My advice would be to get the Vietnam visa in a SEA country where it's cheap and easy, same day even if you're early/lucky.

Visas are...

So, American, then?

There are visa service companies for Vietnam who will take a scan of your passport and $50 and set everything up for you for visa upon arrival at the airport. I don't know one offhand, but they've been posted here before, maybe someone will remember one.

Taiwan, I don't really recommend it because there isn't a lot of touristy stuff to do, but if you're really wanting to see old Chinese...

Coming up on my third contract. It's pretty cool here, but some stuff can drive you crazy if you let it. It's an easy job but do us all a favor and treat it somewhat seriously.

Busan is a bit prettier (surroundings) and more laid back than Seoul but also much smaller. Extra bonus of being farther from the big military bases.

I'm up in Incheon, feel free to ask anything.
Yeh, coming up on my third contract too. Good advice already laid down. Pro tip - Never be scared to let your co workers know how "busy" and "stressful" your work is. Because that's what they're going to do. Even if they're never legit busy. Play the game brah.

Busan is awesome. I live in Incheon. But I've been down there twice. I'm probably going to head down again for a little spring or summer break. It's pretty down there.

Korea is fun as hell man. Especially if you are single and not hideous. Korean chicks are top tier.

I need recommendations for 'real traveler' backpacking locations/routes.

I currently find myself in Southeast Asia and while I espected there to be a lot of tourists I had no idea what it would actually be like. I thought Cancun was the byword for over traveled; every place here is orders of magnitude beyond that I'm currently in Cambodia and there's a fucking Hard Rock Cafe up the street. It's also insanely cheap here and everything is available so I'm enjoying it as a cheap luxurious vacation, but I'm not getting that sense of loneliness,...

- Paraguay?

Essentially I'm looking for uncomfortable (to keep away the crowds) but not actually dangerous (who wants to be kidnapped).
Just go up to China. The language barrier itself is a challenge. Try not to stay in hostels - ask people where to find a 'lu gwan'. Its a cheap hotel, and they're everywhere. The transport is cheap and fast. If I was you I'd go deep into northern Yunnan and disappear into the temperate valleys comprising the foothills of the Himalayas. Although I've been to Yunnan before, the highest I went was Lijiang. Checking out the Burma/Tibet/Yunnan crossroads is on my itinerary.

This is more /m/ but I guess there's some crossover.

I had a great time climbing this spiral bridge in Chongqing, China. It's kind of scary how high it is and how low the side-wall was. The whole climb I'm turning into the wall due to the turn of the spiral and a bit of fixation on the edge. I had to keep trying not to look at the drop.

Hey /trv/

General TEFL thread.

I'm yet another special snowflake teaching English overseas. At first I was focused on Korea for the financial opportunities but after doing some more research I decided on China.

I will be training for two weeks before I actually start teaching but I was curious if anyone had some insight on how much money to bring with me to survive the first month. I get paid on the 10th of every month...

Hmm well I read the article and Vice is just as shitty as I remember.
