Yeah people can get pretty cliquey at hostels especially if they've formed a group and theres some girl in it they want to fuck. Good luck breaking into that one. The upside is you get to see how pathetic the guys are trying to get that pussy.

I don't think there's a hard cutoff, but some hostels have a policy where they won't allow older people. One hostel in Vienna (I think) was like that when I was traveling there. Luckily I'm still in the age range for typical hostelling.

Hi, /trv/.

I'm looking to hit up Prague, which I have covered, and Poland. What's the best city to visit in Poland, in your opinion, and why? Architecture that survived WWII is a huge bonus. I also enjoy nightlife. Culture that's as "Polish" as possible is I suppose, what I'm looking for.

Thanks, anons.

Im in Italy for a month already. I came to visit my friend (hes much older than me, im a manchild gamer/geek/figure collector/cartoon watcher/you know the plot) - my freelance colleague and old friend.

What happened so far
>never been in a big city. I mostly in small towns and villages
>friend lives in a small town
>was in Rome for a day only - friend needed his medicine and we went to clinic
First few days were super cool but now it became boring. I really want to see big cities and go shopping...but for fucks sake in small towns there is almost no itnernet and shops.

I even got picked by my colleague's friends when we went to their villa for 4 days...whichwas a big mistake. I spent all 4 days listening to my autistic music (videogame and cartoon osts) while two of his friends (1) snobby smartass with creepy laugh 2) alpha male dudebro from spain) had their time to pick on me and treat me like shit... (because i guess they expected me to be a party animal but i was an introvert and it insulted them...i don't know..)

I still have 14 more days and im planning to spend them in bigger cities.
Im going to Rome where i will do nothing but crazy shit, buy action figures and eat anything i want.

The only time i was happy in italy was
1) when i went alone and walked many kilometres listening to music and finding new places by myself

Depends on where you go.

Some places like Barcelona and the Balearics have tonnes of English speakers, but in other places it'll be hard to find outside of the city centres, if you can find it at all.

I've never had a problem though, if they know it they switch and if not they help you.

https://themalaysianreserve.com/2019/08/14/overtourism-a-disease-or-a-symptom/

All these paradise beaches, forests and hilly wonders of the world began from humans’ desire to get away from other people and do what they like. And soon you discover that the forest or the beach becomes “overtouristed”. And people begin to look for other places where they can say “Hey, hey, hey”. There may technologies to restore these ruined former paradises. But how about the reasons that drive people — Westerners or Asians alike — to places where they can feel free?

You may talk about a culture clash when you see the Chinese where there only used to be locals or Western visitors. And there were the Arabs before that, in Malaysia’s case. But in Baikal (and even Altai), it’s mostly the locals who are turning the pristine world into yet another crowded horror.

mass tourism is not sustainable, I'm not sure how anyone can objectively say otherwise. small European cities/towns/whatever will not survive the changing tourist landscape. they will simply just not have enough space to accommodate all the people traveling now without either heavy, heavy enforcement or just letting the place be a fucking mess. Eventually as travel becomes more and more cheaper and 3rd world purchasing power rises, you are going to have a massive influx of people all trying to cram into one place at the same time.
>>
98% of people accumulate at the same places. Go to Venice. The main street is crowded and full of people, you walk 20 meters and youre the only person in the alley.
Go to a temple in Japan. Its full of Chinese tour groups. Go to one 200 meters further and theres no one. Or come at night and, again, theres no one because the tour group is eating.

Its easy to avoid tourists. Even when Im hiking I just take a route 500 meters away from the tourist path and I see two people all day while the other tourists complain about... tourists. Sucks for them

Hey /trv/, I'm currently considering attending UBC for University next year, and will be moving from Edmonton to Vancouver and living on uni residence if I decide to do this.

I will be spending a weekend there in the coming fall to check out campus and I need some advice on what to see and do in order to get a feel for the city in general and see if it's a good fit for me. Basically I just want info on what the vibe is like and how it would compare good and bad to Edmonton.

+1 upvote. this place is so cliquish its pathetic. I went to SFU for years, left for Ontario then came back and haven't reconnected with anyone hardly. Everyone who grows up here stays in their safe space bubble of a friend group and no one trusts anyone because of le diversity. Lots of lonely people here and everything is overpriced which doesnt help. I'm moving away soon as I've decided YVR is a neo-lib gentrification project not designed for real Canadians.
>>
>>1656905
not everybody who grows up here is cliquish, but there certainly is a bunch of it, and the reasons you list:

>lots of lonely people
>everything is expensive
>diversity

truth to all of them. there is a weirdly high amount of lonely people, both from here and moving here. lots of these people may want to socialize but are bad at it or are timid from being burned before, so it becomes a loop.

obviously everything is pretty expensive. lots of the good old cheap-er options for going out have disappeared. even the fucking cambie is going away, which sucks. at least getting around the region is okay.

diversity is another one too. my high school here was pretty multi ethnic and i had a bunch of non-white friends, but not too longer after that it was like we all self-segregated into respective ethnic groups lol. not to say this is all driven by animosity or dislike or whatever, but its weird to see it play out like that. groups of all one ethnic group are faaaar more common than diverse ones. super obvious with asians who seemingly refuse to even consider the idea, except filipino women of course

anyways, like i said, i've made it work, and i don't hang out a bunch with just the people i grew up with. but am well aware this town can be tough to move to and make the social part of it work. and well aware a lot of people in this city are aloof dopes who are just bad at socializing themselves

What Mongolia?

I'm going to Taipei next month for 4 days. I've never been to Taiwan (or China) before, and have no agenda other than to eat food and wonder around.

What places should I go and especially what foods should I eat? What area makes the most sense to stay in?

Bumping for this. Curious too.

It's possible for sure, I picked up a girl the first and only night I went clubbing in Kaohsiung. Taipei has the most amount of "Westernized" girls who speak English, so it's obviously still the best option.

>>1657070
Hualien, forget it. You won't meet a girl there unless you're extremely lucky. I went there twice, both with girls I met in Taipei.

Great place though, just not for meeting girls.

As the other Anon says, you just point to the food you want and you get served. You don't need to speak Chinese for the night markets.

Texas driving is murderous desu

I live in Louisiana and I hate driving in Texas because of how aggressive everyone is. But, Texans are quick to blame it on immigrants and newcomers to the state, so I don't know.
When I'm driving at home and see an asshole driver and check their license plate, it's usually a Texas one. But Louisiana drivers are really bad too, we rank lowest on everything else in the US, so eventually we'll get "worst drivers" someday too

Add El Paso to that list. The growing mindset in the parts of Texas I've been in is: "why aren't you in a car if you're going somewhere?"

This is anecdotal, but if you're walking or riding a bicycle anywhere you're looked at like an alien.

How do you make friends when traveling? Or simply meet people?

If you go visit a foreign city on your own, how do you meet people and so forth?

Any ideas?

>>1656800
I think the catch is that he wants people to pay attention to him and feel pity for him.

If he just talks to people, it's over too fast. He's being treated like a normal person with normal responsibilities, and he didn't even get a "reward" for talking to people or some kind of handicap that he thinks he deserves for not being able to make friends like normal people.

He wants some 9/10 girl to see him wearing his headphones and leave a party everyone else is having where Chad Thundercock is showing up and come to his room in the middle of the night to talk about his hurt emotions and how she'd never choose Thundercock and his money and his charisma and his reliability over Anon's fragile artistic genius, trampled upon by an uncomprehending society.

Then he wants mind-blowing sex where the girl leads, he wants a compliment for being good in bed, and he wants an ironclad guarantee that she'll be available for sex at any time with no effort required.

He probably also wants the girl to cuck Thundercock in front of everyone else just for his sake and everyone to start caring about him.

Because like a lot of incel arguments, it's based on the idea that you can "store" social privilege, and that if society won't let you cash in on your victimization check and exchange childhood bullying for eternal special treatment, you're justified in shutting yourself away because society doesn't deserve you.

Trying normally would be too hard.

TL;DR:
OP, you're trying to run from the normal method of making friends because you have that idea that you somehow deserve better "after all this".
You're afraid of being average or worse, and you hamstring yourself with fear of trying before you ever do, mostly because you've idolized "the popular people" for years and you're afraid of being disappointed.

But you're probably also convinced that other people don't do anything else than have fun with their friends after coming home from their $100 an hour travel consultant job and be sprightly the next day while still finding time for yoga, gym, cooking, artistic hobbies and more.

This is a conglomerate image that social media has created, and it is not correct.
Everyone else has times when they stutter, when they forget what to say, when they say something stupid, when they don't want to hang out, when they can't concentrate.
Everyone is bad at something, and it's often something pretty big like art or math or language.
And on top of that, if you don't know any of these people, you don't see them mad or lazy or crying or otherwise not perfect.

Because they aren't taking pictures of that, now.

OP, your image of people is too manicured and you probably think a Chad never has a single issue in his life. That's why you're trying to avoid actually talking to people - because you want to avoid the mess that it is to talk to people (EVEN FOR OTHER PEOPLE; EVEN FOR "NORMIES") and wait till someone notices how much they've "abused" you and comes to genuflect.

You're never going to see any of these people again, what do you have to lose? Open up with a horrible joke, reference something you like in the city, ask someone how their day is going. It's the same as if you take public transportation in your city, someone is always ready to give their life story to a complete stranger.
