I'm a NZ born citizen and I'm thinking of moving to Queensland, AUS in a few years from now. To work and pursue a career. Just wondering if there are any native Queenslanders who can tell me about the place, places to visit, sites or points of interest, politics of the region, etc. Just anything that would be of interest.

Sunshine coast is the nicest place in Aus, great beaches and not too touristy. Cairns is nice too, can go diving on the reef and the fishing is great if your into that.

Yeah smart move going to the biggest shitholes in the country, kiwi diaspora.

From Toowoomba Queensland. Why bother coming to Queensland the other states are nice and has less pricks and cunts. Easier to get a lay and make friends if you’re a bogan. Hard to meet decent people and 90% of the decent people aren’t born and bred in Queensland. Literally met one decent Queenslander and it’s my current GF but her parents are both migrated germans so does it really count though? (No it doesn’t). Move to Melbourne or Sydney far nicer culture. Unless you’re planning to party all the time at the coast or Brisbane.

I'm from Toowoomba as well. A lot of people shit on it but honestly it's a nice little city. Good /out/ and mountains really close by, all the convenience and everything you need, only ~2h from brisbane if you want to get out for the weekend.
Only drawback is no beaches, but there are dams not too far away.

Sunshine coast/Brisbane/Gold Coast area is nice to live at, the rest is dead unless you travel there for a short period.

As an American I grew up with the typical toilet paper only method of cleaning. It never worked great and resulted in me wiping 15-20 times per shit. I went to Europe in my early 20's and got to expierece the Bidets of Italy which I liked, but I thought they were a bit cumbersome. Later on I visited Cambodia and I thought their little wash-nozzle thing was a great invention and it made it super easy to clean my asshole. A few years later I visited Japan and Korea and holy fuck, the washlet method of cleaning your asshole is top tier, it is an absolute dream when it comes to cleaning. Most recently I visited India and you can imagine how efficient that is.

But after trying to wash my ass I started to view the use of toilet paper as incredibly unhygienic.

Do your friends chastise you about it? All of my friends say im a faggot for having a washlet in my house. I explain to them, its literally a hygiene product and I am sorry they walk around with smeared shit on their assholes all day.

Oh, thanks for the reply.
I'm just kind of normie and I thought all the places but europe and america had squat toilets or urinal-type toilets. As I wrote, I like standard toilets

Even though living here is expensive, I still find that the wages are disproportionally high, as in I have more spending money than I used to have in other places. And especially for international travel that money goes a really long way, since everywhere else seems really cheap in comparison.

what is your experience from visiting France, are people there really disrespectful? Is the language really gay or is it just people expecting the locals to speak english?
>>
>>1544916
i fucking love the french. probably my favorite people. but i can see why a lot of people dont like them... its cuz they dont blow smoke up your ass and they shoot straight. they wont pretend to care about something they dont care about. they don't endear themselves. they are just themselves. if you are looking for someone to ignore you while you read a book, drink espresso and rip butts. the french are perfect. but if you are looking for someone to tell you how wonderful where you came from the french may be a bad fit.
>>
>>1544916
French are fine. They don’t have much patience for morons. Learn at least a few words of French and you’ll be fine.
>>
I speak fluent French. As other have noted French people are really direct and will always speak their minds which may be seen as rude by more reserved cultures.
>>
>>1544985
This. At a bare minimum learn parlez vous anglais. In my experience the only time French people were cunts was when people just started talking to them in English assuming they knew the language

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, plus you can cook your own food. Eating out is fun and all but you get sick of eating out every day for weeks or months.

>>1543704
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.
>>
>>1543704
>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.
>>
>>1543713
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.

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.
