What is foreign travel like for non English speakers?

A person who only speaks English can travel to almost anywhere with relying on others knowing slight English but how would it be for a non English mono language person?

I have to live in the USA for the next 2 years on $1,500 per month. Where would you go?

Good luck with that, there are some super efficiency apartments for less than $1k, but the competition for them is pretty fierce (I used to live in one).
The only way to reliably spend less than $1k on rent is to split a place with a roommate in one of the cheaper neighborhoods.

Don't worry about Singapore and Japan, they're incredibly easy mode countries. Don't forget to go slightly outside of the city in Singapore to be in a completely different rainforest environment, separate vibe - check out Pulau Ubin.

Also, Iceland is the simplest country to plan for but really beautiful; there's only really one road, you take it around the whole country, and that's it. Go in summer though or you won't see shit.

It’s pretty much untouched with 0 tourist infrastructure. Nobody speaks English. It’s an experience, wouldn’t go back.

Even the most touristy spots like Inle and bagan weren't that crowded compared to let's say Halong bay or Angkor which both felt like disneyworld. Go before it's too late, their currency took a dip so it's pretty cheap now. I've met the most genuinely kind people there.

Have a chance to stay there for about a month with a family member who is working in Yangon, will I run out of stuff to do? Also how hard is traveling to different cities inside the country?

I'm a student (20 years), and I'm taking a gap year. I was intrested on working on a cruise for 6 months, what kind of job can i do on a cruise without a degree in marketing sales or so. I've looked at bartender resumes but you need to have 2 years exoerience. so any tips to find a job on a cruisehips for 6 months? currently i'm studying engineering if that helps
>>
>>1544969
A big chunk of cruise ship jobs are unskilled gruntwork. Housekeeping, Porter, dining room, laundry, etc. It takes a small army of people to keep those ships clean.
>>
>>1544969
Contact a cruise line and ask them if they have anything available? They usually hire 3rd worlders for unskilled positions. If you're studying mechanical engineering, they usually have one of them on board I think.
You may need to get a Z card.
>>
>>1544997
He would need to get a Z card as well as a stack of other documents and certificationd to work on the engineering crew. That's not a gap year job, that's a profession. That being said, big cruise ships have a lot of entertainment going on and that involves rigging lights, sound systems, big video displays, etc.
All the major cruise lines have hitting fairs, it's best for OP to just go NJ with his resume and see what jobs he's eligible for.

I mean, I was disappointed with HostelWorld evaluations, so this time I'm backpacking in Mexico, I put only good evaluated Booking.com hostels. The result? This is my very first night Mexico City in the best hostel according with Booking.com (plus HostelWorld - I crossed the data), a +9, and IT IS FUCKING TERRIBLE! It is hot as fuck, no air conditioning and we cannot open the window because there is a fucking party going on the roof.

This, though I personally always avoid hostels that have a bar attached. If there's good common room facilities like a pool table that's usually all you need for randoms to be social.

>not part of a chain
The best hostels I've had have always been HI hostels, to be fair.
Last time I got a non-HI hostel it was like a prison. The room didnt even have a fucking window. To each their own though, there are some fucking dodgy chains I always avoid like the plague.

I like to stay in memorable places, as opposed to a box shaped room inside a bigger boxed building. I stayed for cheap at a hostel that was an old mansion in Panama City. Kex Hostel in Iceland used to be a cracker factory, has live music almost nightly, and the whole place is a fucking trip and a half. Just a couple examples off the top of my head. You can see how one might enjoy that more than a Hotel 8, or even a mid-tier hotel.

This. Genova was the richest city of the Mediterranean back when Venice was still an insignificant swamp. There's an atmosphere of dilapidated wealth, which means tons of interesting places to see and no mass tourism.

This is why I love Naples and Budapest. I a total sucker for this kind of atmosphere.

I spent 10 days there, and I have to tell you, that city sucks. HOWEVER, the good news is this: Savona is a short trip north and it is way friendlier, and Cinque Terre is a reasonable train distance south. Spend a maximum of 3 days in Genoa and you will have seen everything there is to see.

I'm going to Turkey in a week or so for the first time.

I definitely plan on visiting Cappadocia region and spending some time in the capital. What are the must-do things in Istanbul other than visiting the major sights like Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc.? Is food better on the Asian side or the European side? Any general Turkey tips?

Working in Western Europe?

I'm a cook. I'm pretty good, but am young and only have experience in local restaurants in my small town.

I'm going to travel to the UK, France, Italy and Germany over the course of a year and want to know if I'll be able to work here and there at a kitchen, or anywhere that I need to, really. Would I start with a stage, working for free until they think I'm good enough to stay? What about all that "work visa" shit? I can get by on German, lesser so on Spanish and will learn French.

No, they are times when there were only French. With the internet and since Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia etc ... are in the EU, the news prostitute is mostly foreign.

Anyone noticed this?
I’m british and since I learned chinese and got familiar with some different asian cultures in past years i noticed this.

Designer goods are extremely prevent in asia, way more than here in europe. Japan was the country least obsessed with them but women particularly still enjoy them.
China was the eorst bordering on vulgarity with designer goods and how they wore it all.

Another thing is social media. I know it’s popular everywhere, but it seems in asia a lot of people use it to gain face in a different way to how i’ve seen elsewhere. Mostly again by showing off clothes and goods in a very obvious way(vs holidays and activities which is most common here in Europe i noticed).

Why is this? I dated some asian women snd for sure this is more prevelent behaviour, good in some ways as they care for their appearance a lot.

Yeah, they're only recently rich, gross displays of wealth are still socially important for them.
