You can check the dates looking at the stamps in your passport.
>>
>>1655315
That's gonna be hard if you travel to a country that doesn't issue stamps, or if you replace your passport (and not keep your old one). It's mostly a non-issue to me now, since this wildly improbably scenario didn't happen to me, and if it does, I'll be more than prepared.

You guys are fucking retarded. You obviously only ever write down the countries that can be traced back to you, i. e. your passport stamps or at least one country for plausible deniability purposes. Apart from that they have 0, ZERO, ways to verify that because different jurisdictions.

I usually visit Asia and Europe every day!
+b*tch, you live in Istanbul

The US has a major homelessness crisis, with lots of drug addicts and mentally ill people wandering the streets in every major city in the country, is this also the case in european cities as well? Serious btw, I would like to hear perspectives on this because NYC is on a level that is becoming unbearable.

I was wondering the same thing and found this...

>The modern deinstitutionalisation movement was made possible by the discovery of psychiatric drugs in the mid-20th century, which could manage psychotic episodes and reduced the need for patients to be confined and restrained. Another major impetus was a series of socio-political movements that campaigned for patient freedom. Lastly, there were financial imperatives, with many governments also viewing it as a way to save costs.

Basically the US closed all of its insane asylums and allowed patients the option to refuse treatment outright and left it in the hands of the mentally insane to decide whether to choke down some pills or not. Also prisons effectively replaced mental treatment centers.

Not nearly to the same extent as the US, but for some reason the area around main train station in pretty much every European city is always a pretty shit area with homeless people and addicts.

How much money do you have, how old, do you plan on working, do you want crystal clear water like that or any other beach type will do?

If you're willing to live in a rented concrete box, Taiwan has plenty of empty housing near beaches. The beaches are mostly low quality, though. Kenting is the nice one. If you want to be right on the water, then it's going to cost you, but you can rent 20 minutes away for maybe $300/mo and scooter there whenever you want.

If you just want water, Hualien has really crappy stone beaches, and you can rent a short drive from them for $150/mo. The waves make a really weird/neat hissing sound as they hit the rocks and then flow back out through them. Lots of nighttime fishing also. Only big downside is that Hualien is Earthquake Central for Taiwan.

If you want to venture into South America, the southern coast of Brazil until the Prata River in Uruguay is like 600km of beach without interruption, so im sure you can find really cheap property with infinite beach, probably much harder to get a job though

I think I caught bed bugs when traveling what can I do to make sure I don't bring them home with me?
27 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
I've been to many hundreds of hostels and hotels over the years, almost all of it in developing countries, never been aware of their being bedbugs. Convince me it's not a myth?
>>
assuming you haven't brought them into your home, they aren't that hard to get right of right? When you fly back just buy 1 set of new clothes, deal that shit in a bag, get to house, change into clothes before going in, put everything else into garbage bag, stick said bag contents into dryer for 30 minutes aaaand finished. I guess you dust off everything non clothing outside and perhaps just toss the backpack if you can't be bothered

am I missing something here?
>>
>>1655221
If you miss even 2 eggs you're fucked. But yes the biggest terror of bedbugs is they are impossible to get rid of once you bring them home
>>
had them in a hotel in Coppenhagen.
You won't know until it's too late, usally due to numerous bumps but they take like 4 days to develop and/or round brown stains on the bed sheets.
When you go home put all of the clothes in a bag and spray it with bug spray (intensely) do this mulptiple times if you want, then after letting it rest for a bit place all your clothes in the washing machine and that will kill everything.
>>
>>1655231
you don't really need to do the spray part, just dump it in the dryer since the heat will kill all the eggs. if you ever get worried that your bed was kinda sketchy then just take the precautions like other anons have said before you step into your home. Worse comes to worse just leave everything otiside, go inside naked, take everything to the local laundromat and do it there if you're worried about shit getting inside. Replacing a backpack/clothes/whatever is MUCH, MUCH, MUCH better than dealing with an infested home.

Hypothetically speaking, can I use my cousins Canadian passport to go to North Korea on one of those tours? I'm American, and unfortunately I can't because of fucking Otto Warmbier.

We look alike, same height, same weight, I can change my hair color to match his picture. I can even sound a little bit Canadian, but I doubt they'd know the difference between American and Canadian accent.

Going to Lisbon next monday and spending my week there, any tips about the city? Any Lisbonese wanting to meet?

where are you staying? i though in the middle of the old town was the coolest to stay, also if you do drugs the place is infested with dealers your coice between gypsy Muslim or black. the place is also full of Brazilians and empty superbock bottles. the women are kinda hard to get but there was a nice prostitute i had when i was there.... expensive though

if you get a chance go to cabo da rocka and hike the coastline there or rent a motobike.

Pena palace is cool as fuck but expensive to get in 19eu i think the whole town of Sinatra is a must to be honest

I share a house, keep my costs as low as I can, cheapskate a bit abroad, work interim jobs with decent pay - aka I can just save up some money and bugger off when I feel like it. Not saving much on the side, but it's a choice I made. And I pick my destinations for their /out/ level.

Why do you go so much? I went once and while I liked it, it's very calming and quite I don't going for a second time.

You should really plan on spending more in Cuba if you can afford. This is only my opinion but 17 days in Cuba with a 700 euro budget would kinda suck

You’re on vacation right so live it up if you can. A 700 euro budget for 2 people is basically homelessness imo. Up it to 2 grand and you’ll have an amazing time
>>
>>1655198
Where did he say he's going with another person?

For one person 700 euros really is a budget situation but he can manage if he doesn't fall on tourist traps and know his way around.

Try Heladeria copelia, really good ice cream for pennies, but you have to go as a local or they'll send you to the gringo stand where they sell the same ice cream more expensive and without the cone powder.

Hey /trv/ it’s a bit early but what are the best countries to travel to for the Christmas season. I’d want to go somewhere that has places like pic related, or those coke truck ads, just any of those comfy white Christmas feels. I’d also like somewhere that has cities with a big Christmas presence. I’ve heard that the Northern European countries are good as well as Canada and parts of America. I’m Australian btw so I’ve never even seen a white Christmas

any nordic country other than sweden
>>
If you want a white christmas then I would recommend Canada. I hate to advertise Ontario for anything but if you're after a lot of snow that place is perfect. Or you could go to Vancouver and go to Whistler, it's pretty much an Australian town already.

But honestly man Germany encompasses the vibe way more. Christmas markets start a couple months ahead, and everyone walks around with Glüwein and has a merry time. Only thing is a lot of stuff closes on xmas day so as a traveler you'll want to plan ahead for it.

Asheville, North Carolina, or Quebec City. Pic is the former (inside Grove Park Inn).

Sweden does the comfy Christmas aesthetic really well and you have a good chance of snow (especially if you head north) but a lot of stuff closes down around Christmas.
I believe that Finnish Lapland buys into the Christmas meme pretty hard.

There words: heroin, heroin, heroin.

The locals just call it good shit(TM).

But not so much of that shit you'll pitch a tent there and never go home.

Seattle heroin is plentiful and like kissing god. The atmosphere is incredible for getting so fucking blasted you drool. About 80% of Seattlites will even cover you with a blanket and check in on you if you pass out on their lawn.

After Vancouver, Seattle is literally the safest place in the world to get high off your ass with real shit.

If you're new to the scene, don't worry.

A three day binge on the best shit ever won't make you a raving junkie.
