Houston is the 4th biggest city (by population) in America, yet it receives very little attention compared to the three cities in front of it. Surely this oil and gas metropolis isn't as boring as it appears and has plenty of things to do and has it's own distinct culture.

Is it possible that it could ever rival Los Angeles or Chicago in terms of appeal? Or is it really that boring?

Amarillo is.. A really fucking weird place, it's unlike any other city I've ever visited. The food absolutely sucks, it's not really a wholesome small town either. A lot of drug use and seedy shit going on and there really isnt that super religious layer there to keep it in line. It's also VERY dark at night, the city is not well lit. Its the worst parts of a small town and a big city combined with the upsides of neither. You couldn't pay me to live there. Mexican food is alright and the Hispanic community is one of the better in Texas imo.

Lubbock is better but you get dust storms, walls of dust that coat everything. You also get that college town vibrancy though, the food is better, jazz is some really fucking good Cajun food. If I had to pick between the two I'd go with Lubbock. It's hot and theres not a lot going on but you get a lot of genuine God fearing country people there as well which is nice. Have a good Texas country song as well.

Houston is like 2-3 hours from Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Shreveport, and Lake Charles and like 6 from New Orleans if you don't mind the drive. Honestly though I never really considered how shit it was because its the best city near my shitty base in Louisiana. I'm a dirty fuck and it is the capital of sw's and deviant couples and the proximity to other high population places makes me scratch my balls with joy just thinking about it.

Besides that its Texas so you can own a real AR and mod the fuck out of your truck to roll coal on people both things i know for a fact are illegal in Cook County where im originally from and LA.

was there during the whole spring/summer semester as an ERASMUS student in Wroclaw and also visited Warsaw, going there for a couple weeks again to meet with a girl i was with

Wroclaw is a very nice city imo: clean, cheap, good nightlife, safe and has everything u need nearby. Warsaw on the other hand looked like a bleak and dirty communist block with nothing to do unless visiting the historical center and getting harrassed by gypsy kids trying to make u give them money. As for krakow i heard it was closer to wroclaw than warsaw, but i think its popularity probably just makes it worse. outer city areas look pretty bleak aswell.

hooking up with shit like tinder or even going out clubbing is great (atleast that was my experience)
i had a group of friends that i would stick with and if i noticed any girls looking my way id go to them, or we'd all join a group of girls and pick it out along the way

Dont know about your shithole, but here LGBTerrorists are violent idiots pissing on the streets and desacrating everything that is holy (for Poles and Catholics).

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.

This is a tough one for me. Generally my fellow burgers are the worst. I've gotten a complaint because the water wasnt dry from when they cleaned the showers in the room. This customer waited about 15 some odd minutes while we finished cleaning the room, then demanded a different one because the shower was wet from cleaning or some shit.
Had some lady complain because housekeeping went in to change towels and she said we werent allowed to do that because privacy rights? But then then the next day got mad because we didnt go in and change her towels. IDK, mostly Americans are the worst though.

With that said, we get Chinese tour groups. They are hands down the worst people to deal with. And the reason I learned basic Commands, because they will just step outside their rooms to smoke. Like in the hallway. It's annoying as fuck. Or I'll be helping someone and they'll come up and just start speaking to me, in chinese, as if I'll know it. It's why I learned "smoke outside" and "one moment" because then they'll usually apologize and go outside or wander off until their tour guide comes up annoyed at why I didnt help them.
They also take so much fucking food it's ridiculous. The bright side to the Chinese tourists is they'll take a shit ton of rooms, and then I dont often have to help nearly as many people, making my night hella easy and I get to relax to do homework or watch Animu because weeb.

DON'T attempt to climb Triglav if you have no experience whatsoever with rock climbing, long hikes (5-6 hours for ascend only!), and generally have little knowledge about conditions at areas above tree line. Pic related, it's one of the climbing routes on Triglav, as you can see it's not really a pleasant afternoon touristic hike.

This is a valid point. But I intend to spend 3 to 6 months in Japan at the start of the trip, and everything there will be very expensive. I don't feel like actually camping for that long.

That's because anyone who can afford to drive a Lambo there is literally royalty and killing them would send the literal military in to literally burn your hometown.

The point I'm trying to make is nobody is going to hunt you down for your POS car since the locals will be driving nicer cars than you.I used a lambo as an extreme example but I see many people driving nice cars like Benz there too.

Of course if you go to the absolute poverty stricken area with no police force you might get mugged, but with a car it's pretty easy these areas

Italians, Croats, Greeks, French posters - what is it like growing up/living in a coastal city/town/village in your cunt? Is it as romantic and comfy as the movies make it seem? Do people actually interact with each other? Do you live in the moment and for the day rather than working/for the weekend?

I have euro parents, a place in the city and a big house in the countryside of my own here, but i've never lived by the sea and it seems so appealing just moving to a small fishing village and living a quiet life. Just want some opinions of those that have experienced this type of life and what you think

Not with that architecture, culture, landscape and food. Of course it's possible to find similar experiences everywhere, but i'm asking about specific areas because i'm looking for a specific experience.

Sweden for example doesn't have the beaches and temperatures of southern Europe, nor the architectural vibe.

Yes, exactly like the ones in your pic. I'd post my own but I won't bother since you already get the idea. They're much more secure, simply walking forward normally will keep them on your foot like unrolling some kind of foot condom. They don't dig into your toe crevices and they don't require you to carry around/clean socks. You're welcome.
