Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

USA would be as safe as any european country despite its 350 million guns if you subtract the cities of Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, DC, and Baltimore. Even then its not the entire cities by just a couple dozen blocks where all the violence happens. Anywhere else your not going to run into any problems, in fact once people in the suburbs find out your a foreigner they will probably be so in awe of the fact they will show you around and be real hospitable

I don't agree on that. There are very very few cases of impulsive manslaughter. If any, it's only in the largest cities. Guns are strictly controlled as you need a hunting license, wich you need to do a lot of shooting practice and courses to get.
I will agree that Oslo is a shithole, but Copenhagen is a lot worse.

I was sceptical at first, but pic-related is a very good map. The only thing I disagree is North Korea - it's impossible anything to happen to you because you are chaperoned 24/7 and only get in real trouble if you do retarded shit.

they are very parallel in that they both contain the extreme highs and extreme lows of each countries' urban cultures with a whole lot in between. i would say the clearest way to see the difference can be see in the difference between Piccadilly and Times square. there are more clean areas and side markets and areas in london but less stuff to do beyond eating and drinking. london's "skyline" is also more contained and the city feels more open than nyc. personally i love both cities. i will NYC is also kind of an island in the sense that once your in NYC you kind of get stranded and dont really go beyond the city whereas in london people come and go all the time.
>>
>>1656898

You should visit NYC sounds like holiday would do you some good

In my experience I enjoyed London more as a student and NYC more when I had a bit of money

Nope, acvess control have been implemented onto the airport. However, they might try to do funny things to road and rail leading to the airport. Official suggestion is that if you're departing from the Hong Kong airport then please arrive three hours earlier than your flight's scheduled departure time to prepare for unforseenable situation. Personal recommendation is that use the Airport Express rail whenever possible as it will not be obstructed by traffics on the road. And if the bridge to the airport is completely closed due to whatever event including both the road and rail service you can take the ferry from Central to Mui Wo on the Lantau Island and then change for buses to Tung Chung and then to the airport.

>protestors still blocking the airport
Despite what you might have read or seen, it was actually only for a few hours on Monday and maybe a bit on Tuesday. Airports can't just reopen in a few minutes so once they gave up and shut down, staff went home and the protestors could go home too.
The Airport can't actually tell the airlines to recall all those staff and reopen, and if they tried then the protestors might all come back so it's basically over for the day.

There is an internal job opening in HK for my company. Exactly the type of work I'm good at.

Should I go for it? Or is it too stupid to move there now?
>>
>>1657026
>Or is it too stupid to move there now?
Assuming the money is good then it should be fine.
There'll be stoppages now and then, you might not be able to get to work some days, find out if you'd get paid for those days. Your company might not even be open for work during that time.

If the money is good then I'd do it for the experience.
You're not going to be targeted by either Beijing or the protestors so I wouldn't worry about that. You might want to steer clear of protest sites and stuff so that you don't get caught up in the triad attacks and stuff.

America wasn't always an independent nation. The original plan was for it to be just an expansion of Britain, but then the wypipo who settled in were like "fuck this shit, we wanna be our own country, get fucked brits." Brits are just salty that they don't get to own the massive piece of land that is America.

Americans are beloved worldwide. Infact they are so lovely that even after the horrific war in which hundreds of thousands of civilians died in this country of vietnam at the hands of american invaders just 60 years ago, they are the most loved and admired foreigner or tourist. I've concluded a long time ago that the only people who hate americans are the countries that had to beg for USA to save them from germans and soviets!

What’s the best way in preparing your gut for traveling to shitholes so I won’t have explosive diarrhea on day 1?
>>
don't be super sterile or clean - have pets at home, eat food that drops on table from your plate, don't wipe whole kitchen with alcohol/vinegar, eat probiotic food.
Avoid ice and sketchy food on the day one, but slowly introduce it to your diet. If you're afraid you might get sick, add loads of chilli or garlic.

Drink those little Yakut yogurt things after every sketchy meal. Don’t bother with them once you’ve got the shits tho.
I had full-blown amoebic dysentery last month after having to wade through a flooded street in Dhaka. I spent the worst week of my life feeling like a bathtub with the plug pulled out. But then I started doxycycline for malaria and I’m pretty sure that cured the dysentery, don’t quote me on that though.
You can ask your travel doctor for panic-button kill-every-microbe-in-my-body antibodies before you go.

Do it gradually to avoid getting sick. You need to slowly build up your immune system.
Here's what I usually do over a span of 3 weeks before I travel. Each step lasts about 3-4 days before I move on to the next;

>Drink milk products with added bacteria culture (Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG)
>Stop washing hands after urinating
>Stop washing hands after shitting
>Touch the outer area of urinals in public bathrooms with your hands (without washing)
>Touch the inner area of urinals in public bathrooms with your hands
>Touch the inner area of urinals in public bathrooms with your hands (and lightly touch your tongue afterwards)
>Lick door handles in public areas

I've never gotten sick when traveling to third world countries.

180cm/85kg fatty here. I found some really cheap sweaters at Uniqlo that fit me like a glove. The selection is huge, there are definitely some that will fit you.

Asking this again, still have a lot of time to make a good map:
Have you guys camped or wild camped in Japan before? If yes, could you show me on google maps where you have camped? You can also show other campgrounds that are near train stations. I want to make a map of "accessible" campgrounds that you can reach without a car or a 40 minute bus ride (on a bus that only drives three times per day). I have wild camped in a few places before, but that info is no use to me now because I obviously want to see new places during my next trip. I have already found a good number of campsites which are close to train stations or some that are literally right next to them.

What are your favorite parts of Germany?
I'm going to Berlin this year, but next year I want to go back and maybe do a Frankfurt+ Freiburg im Breisgau trip.
Keep in mind that from New York, there are only direct flights to Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich. I know 4chan doesn't seem to like Frankfurt very much, but I'm the type that can have fun anywhere as long as there are good restaurants and bars.

Last night, I met an Italian girl travelling in my Scandi country. Scandinavian people are generally not very social, or spirited, or adventerous, so I was quite taken by this girl. She has spent the last 2 weeks driving all over the country, sightseeing and partying, not even planning out a route or places to sleep. She seemed wild, spirited, and crazy, like she was living enough for 10 people. She reminded me how bored I am of my life, as a 24yo student stuck at home.

I have almost never left my home country, or even city, and I wish to change that. However, I am a black man, and would like not to get unnecessarily harrassed or abused by authorities, or by the natives. Any other black anons here? What places have you been? What places do you recommend for sightseeing? For partying? For spending time alone?

The whole reason they came here in the first place was economic gain and their generation actively despises their "country of birth" while hyping up their shit hole. Forming a parallel society, because of heritage (which is fucking ironic isn’t it?) Look at fucking Moroccans and Turks in my western euro country, not to mention the blacks constantly complaining about muh discrimination as if they are entitled to a place in an ethnically white society when they were told to move back after the 70's but stayed and even brought their families over. Fuck you, you disingenuous, ignorant American piece of shite.
