5 years is doable but only if you spend more time in cheap countries like east europe and africa. If you plan to stay a year in Netherlands you won't make it.
My average is 22k a year.
I still have 70k in cash right now and plan to make 3 more years with it.

Sup y'all,

Burger here. I'm about to spend 6 months in the Middle East for work. I'll be returning to the US around January and I'd like to spend about a month travelling.

Where would be the best place to go? I feel as if Europe would be pretty lame during the winter months and I'm not interested in going to nipland.

Maybe South America/Australia/New Zealand?
>>
>>1621735
It depends of what are you looking for.
Want to go to warm places/beaches? Go to SEA or anywhere below the equator.
Do you like skiing/snow? Go to the Alps.
Not an expert of Middle Europe but I think there isn't much to do there in winter.

how do i get out of china if i've been banned from leaving?

Never mind, I googled it. No idea how accurate it is:

https://www.travelchinaguide.com/embassy/visa/form.htm
>Aliens overstaying the visa or residence permit for a short period will be given a warning and be required to pay a fine. Usually, the penalty is CNY500 per day not to exceed CNY10,000.
So that's less than $1500 USD. That's not exactly cheap, but it's not exactly life-ruining.

>If one overstays the visa for a significant period, usually over one month, he might be put into a detention camp for 5 to 15 days and repatriated to his home country. It's possible he will be blacklisted, which will affect his re-entry to China, and he may be prohibited from entering the country for ten years. In addition to this, it might also influence one's visa application for other countries.
If you stay way too long, then you get kicked out for free, and banned for 10 years. If something like this happens to you, chances are you wouldn't want to go back anyway.

>Do people actually get fired in the Asian workforce? I thought they just bully the hell out of the workers until they can't take it anymore and resign.
No point bullying someone to do something if they're shit at doing it.
They bully (use up) the ones that can work but are being difficult about getting paid on time and given what they were promised. The ones that are actually shit teachers just get fired and quickly too. The criteria is that if parents/children are complaining about your classes, you're likely to be fired (unless you quit first and get a different job).

>>1620480
>I had to write an apology letter to the boss and take a picture with them
It's nearly always a verbal warning if you only overstayed a day or two and there's no reason for them to think you did it deliberately. They'll accept any half-arsed excuse provided you have one and it's only a day or two. It's guys staying a week+ or whole months that they really care about.

>>1621142
>get kicked out for free, and banned for 10 years
I've had some overstay twice and can still get visas. The basic rule is that if you're fined and you pay the fine, you're given a temporary visa to depart and then allowed to get a new visa. If you can't or won't pay the fine, then you're banned.

I have Latvian family and want to disagree, but a friend of my family (who's basically an ersatz grandfather due to living with my grandmother) has driven a beaten-up mid-90s Volvo with a Wunderbaum in the window at 110 down a gravel road with one hand while talking (with four kids in the car as well), so I don't think I have the right to say anything.

What hobbies do you take with you when traveling? Is it more a case of just enjoying the hobby and not wanting to quit doing it during the time you are traveling, or do you seek out fellow hobbiests to meet , or use the hobby to attract attention as an "ice breaker" to meeting people?

I've taken up LED poi since last year, taken them on a few trips. Have not yet used them as a meet up tool with other hobbyists, but I've enjoyed spinning in different places, and have met some people who came up to ask what I was doing, and could they try it.

Now, I'm interested in doing the same thing, but I'm afraid people will just tell me to fuck off, lol. Has anyone used this website before? How hard is it to find accommodation for a night?
Also does anyone know if something like this exists but for motorcyclists?

if the weather is nice, take some food and sit down in the grass or on a bench at the Charles River Esplanade, Boston side. You get there by crossing the highway between back bay (the neighborhood) and THE back bay (the body of water) - there are a couple footbridges. it's a grass strip that sits between the road and the water. very pretty view, lots of sailboats out on the water, amazing sunsets

I have 2 weeks to spend in the middle east, my first week will be in Jordan, however am wondering how to split the second week in between Egypt, Israel, Lebanon and Syria.

Any tips?

I quite like nightlife and love meeting people at hostels, so I imagine Tel Aviv is probably best, but have heard good things about Beirut too. Also the history/culture in Cairo/Damascus is appealing

To be fair, Tartus and Latakia are very stable regions of Syria with quite nice beaches and several good hotals. They are also very cheap and you can get major deals on the hotels due to the lack of the people visiting.

Actually quite a few Ukranians and Russians go on holiday there.
>>
>>1619754
>I quite like nightlife and love meeting people at hostels, so I imagine Tel Aviv is probably best, but have heard good things about Beirut too.
Tel Aviv will certainly have more crowded hostels, and very solid nightlife, but there are some absolutely incredible bars and clubs in Beirut if you are interested in that sort of thing, and there's a lot of interesting, weird civil-war-themed nighlife. This place was cool a few years ago: https://www.afar.com/places/b-018-night-club-jisr. And a buddy of mine says that he went to a disco in a missile silo, but if that's true I missed it.

Regarding Damascus, it's a really cool, historic city, but all of Syria is a mess. I was there in the 90s when it was a peaceful brutal dictatorship, and the city was really charming and cost nothing. It evidently maintained order and peace throughout the war, too, but I wouldn't personally hurry back to Syria, not least because I go to the US a lot and I imagine border protection will have questions about those stamps.

>I don't know what the current state of passport-stamp-cold-war is, either... If you go to Lebanon, maybe you won't be able to get into Israel afterwards? Maybe vice-versa too, although the Israelis don't usually stamp directly on the passport anymore? God knows what the deal is with Syria......

My info is obviously old, though--I wasn't there during or after recent conflicts. Just my opinions.
>>
Israel doesn't stamp your passport and you might seem suspicious if you come from other me countries so you could go there first maybe
t. has only ever traveled to israel out of all of middle east
>>
A week in Jordan honestly sounds like a nightmare to me. The whole country looked the exact same imo.

Israel has a lot of shit to see like Jerusalem and is more interesting.

I've never been to Egypt, but you could probably squeeze in a 2-3 day trip to Cairo just to see the pyramids and the other egyptian shit
