Frequent poster here with a dilemma I thought a few of you guys might be able to relate to/advise me on.
I'm a Britbong travelling for his second time, currently in Okinawa. I spent my first three days with a girl from Singapore I met last time I was in Japan who now is thinking about getting into a long distance relationship with me. I can think of a lot of reasons why this wouldn't work, but I still want this to happen.

I dated an Indian girl for around two years. Sometimes I'd go and visit her and sometimes she'd come and visit me. Needless to say, the only time our relationship was particularly easy was when we were actually together. I mean, we shared a lot of special memories and I learned a lot about her culture, but I don't know if I'd want to go through the same stress again unless I saw a definite future with the woman. When we were dating, neither of us had finished undergrad and she wasn't sure... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>939787 It can work. Military cats do it all the time. There are thousands of people on Okinawa with you right now in long distance relationships. It can work. How stressful it is depends on your own personality.
A half year ago I have been to a ~100 people population area in northern coast of Estonia. These cities up there are small as fuck, in the middle of forests which are in NOWHERE. You have no possibilities to go out on evenings to party or anything. You have one supermarket with a horribly small variety of wares. Basically everything is in extreme contra to bigger cities. To get to the next big city (which has 2000 people) is 45 mins with the car. The next really big city is Tallinn, the capital of Estonia which is at least 2 hours from these small cities.

And here is a more zoomed out screenshot showing the area of all the 3 small villages in the area. You see, it is literally nothing but forests for hours of drive once you leave the villages at the beaches.
Being a Lappish person myself I have a bit of difficulties understanding why someone would want to visit these bumfuck nowhere places. But of course in Lapland there's a lot of nature. Other than that why would you visit there?
So the thing is that I'm going to SoCal for 1,5-3 months in 2-3 weeks to visit my uncle and his family. Escondido to be exact.
I love food, fixed gear biking and skateboarding (typical hipster I suppose).
I'm asking you guys what should I do there (must see places, must visit restaurants etcetc). Also where should I buy a bike (preferably used cheap one since I don't have lots of cash möney to spend). Mexico would be cool to visit too.
Sorry for this inconsistent text. I just woke up x)

Armenia. I don't see many people talking about this part of the world to visit, but I have to say I absolutely loved it.
My wife and I started in Moscow, then drove south. Stayed in Rostov for a night then continued from Russia into Georgia onward to Tbilisi and stayed there for three days. From there we continued south into Armenia, driving to Dilijan. We stayed in Dilijan for a few days, then spent the rest of the time in Yerevan and the surrounding sites/areas.
My thoughts about the three countries, as it was my first time in all three.
Russia - had some amazing things to see in Moscow, but overall felt like another city to me (I live in NYC).
Georgia - Absolutely beautiful scenery, we drove into Georgia during sunset and the mountains were spectacular. Tbilisi was a great city to explore, as well was incredibly cheap. I honestly don't think I spent more than $20-25 USD for food for the three days. I would love to go back for a longer duration.
Armenia - Insanely beautiful. When we returned home I told people it was a complete hidden gem, and that everyone should go see it. The history of the various churches and historical sites are a marvel to see. Dilijan was perfect weather even in the summer. Yerevan was pretty nifty, although much much hotter. I really enjoyed the center of Yerevan. Armenia as a whole was incredibly cheap. Also, Armenians are overly hospitable. We went to go buy Lavash (thin bread) from a local farmer in Dilijan and he gave us a ride back to our apartment and a bottle of some homemade vodka.
If anyone is interested, I can dump some pictures.
I hitched a ride from Tbilisi to Yerevan back in July of 2013 with a German couple who were staying at the same hostel as me and a friend. I didn't spend nearly as long in Armenia as I did in Georgia but I still impressed with the country's natural beauty and the hospitality of its inhabitants. Maybe this sounds silly, but I've never been somewhere where fucking borders guards seemed so genuinely happy to see a visitor from a faraway place - this one guy shook my hand, had this huge smile on his face,...

It just dawned on me that I could spend a week in Thailand with blowjobs and beer every morning, great undiscovered foods all day long, and vibrant nightlife with a 100% chance of a sexy ass female coming home with me. That would yield enough debaucherous memories to last a life time, for only a few months savings.
Hey /trv/ Am planning to travel to Taiwan with a couple friends this summer of 2015. Anyone have experience there/advice/stories? From what I've heard it's a relatively inexpensive and fun country. I have a very general idea of things to do but would love to get some input -spend a few days in Taipei (5 or so?) go to the museum and do all the usual sightseeing stuff as well as eating good food, some shopping and nightlife etc... -do some touring of the island possibly on rented scooters? or by train and head down south towards Kaohsiung and Kenting national...

Lived in Taiwan for a few years. Yes spend time in Taipei. Do the tourist shit and hit up the clubs (Luxy yo). One you won't see in a guide book: join Facebook groups such as "frog in a sock" and go to one of the pool parties in Taipei. It's fucking fun, the people are cool and the bitches are hot.
It's very unlikely you will be allowed to rent scooters unless you have an international drivers license (get a Taiwanese to rent for you).
I would definitely recommend going to Kaohsiung then renting scooters from there, and riding to Kenting.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>935380 I'll be studying in Japan for 2 years, starting this year, but i'm poor as fuck. Any way I can get money as a student fast? I'm thinking of renting a place close to the uni for 28000 yen a month, but between that and the school fee and eating i think it's too much.
Plus, I want internet, so what's a good way to get that? I'm fluent in japanese, so that's not a problem.
I'll be living in Nagaoka-shi, Niigata-ken, so mostly my transportation would be bike and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I know this isn't a typical question here, but I'm in a bit of a dilemma.
My daughter was just born. I never really put much thought into what this really meant until I first held her in my arms. I want to provide her with the best life I can give her.
I am an American with dual citizenship with Colombia and my wife is also American with Ecuadorian dual citizenship. Our daughter is American but is eligible for Colombian citizenship and I'm pretty sure for Ecuador as well.
I worry about the future here in the United States. Things just seem... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're fucking regarded the U.S. is almost certainly the best country to be raised in (assuming you're at least middle class). Any Colombian or Ecuadorian to whom you said they were lucky not to have been born in the US would punch you in the face.
Maybe Canada would be more privilege-tier if you had the choice.
As a rule, no-one is going to hassle you other than idiot guys 'flirting' with you. You're probably used to that though. So yeah, unless you're going to a really bad area you'll be fine. Just use your common sense, you're probably more at risk of thieves than rapists etc.
And the obvious stuff: Don't get black-out drunk, keep an eye on your drinks, and most of all have a good time!
Monthly Tefl thread. I'm an American who teaches English to children in Thailand. I've been here for 4 years. I've also taught English for 2 years in Japan. I intend on staying and teaching in Thailand for the rest of my life.
If anybody has any questions about teaching English in a foreign country ask away.
>>934223 I'm engaged to a girl. Quality of life here is good. I'm about to finish my masters so I will be making more money. My life is a lot better then it was before I got here. So yeah all of these reasons.
>>934223 >>934208 (OP) >rest of my life >jesus christ why I'm also curious, you could be teach in English in south Korea and other Asian countries. Why lock yourself down to one place for the rest of your life?
