Is it weird that I enjoy plane turbulence?

>>1579150
I have no problem with turbulences because its easier for me to sleep.
The scariest moment for me was when suddenly the engines turned off/ restarted in mid air. I can still remember the fear in everyone eyes when the plane went completely quiet for 20-60seconds.
>>
OP, I enjoy it for a little while, I must say I agree. But, it can be mildly swaying, and at other times there's a nice slamming down action that will slosh your drink. If it's meal service, or you really did want to nurse that drink with ice, or that nice glass of wine for a while, forget it.

>>riding on those short jets, at night, light rain with heavy winds
>honestly pure fucking suffering and I have to go through it more often than not coming back to my home state.
>big planes rarely get to that level of bumpy
Yea, a little turbo prop bombardier to a second tier airport can get the kind of turbulence no one really can do anything about but detest it. Pilots rarely slow down or change altitude when on a schedule like they have nowadays.
>>
When i was a kid we would fly 20 hours to visit family almost every year and i used to hope there would be turbulence because i found it fun. Now all i want is a nice peaceful, calm journey
>>
>>1579150
It helps me fall asleep if it's not super rough. I feel like a baby being cradled to sleep
>>
Yes, it makes hopeful that the plane will crash and that someone may play me in the discovery channel documentary about it.

Has anyone around here some experience with surfcamps?
I‘m about to do a stop in Indonesia for a month during my trip through Asia. My first destination is Bali and since i‘ve never surfed before i‘m thinking about booking one of these camps like kimasurf. Is it worth it?

maybe i'm wrong but i don't know if i agree with this. i probably could go to a smaller city and make just as much dough but i love walking the same paths my heroes walked. i love saying i do this job in this place. i don't want to sound arrogant but there have been multiple TV shows, books, and movies about what i do for work and where i do it, and for whatever reason that means something to me.... i also love really love city life and subway commuting.

Considering traveling on my own for the first time to Spain. I'm American living in Florida and have only travelled before to Canada and Bahamas with family / friends. Was thinking of doing a couple cities / towns in Spain over a 2-3 week period. I have family in Santander so would like to stop there. What is the cheapest and most efficient way to travel around ? Train pass ? I was looking at Euro Rail and don't really understand the travel days thing. I'm into drinking and old buildings and stuff. Was also considering maybe visiting a whiskeria while I'm there. Any advice ? Thanks.

Which cities in America have the most attractive men and women?

Tempe, AZ for women

Detroit, MI for men

Women in downtown Chicago are fit and attractive in their professional clothing. Everywhere else they're fat and tatted up with neon colored hair
>>
>>1576441
I agree. Lived there 2 years, almost never saw anyone attractive. They're all stressed-out, sick, sleep deprived and generally miserable. They all seem to have bad skin as well. It seems like an unhealthy place.
>>
I can't think of anywhere in the US that stands out as having above-average women, but Montreal Canada has some of the most attractive women I've ever seen and most are above average.
>>
>>1576224
Any place where white people are the majority. Unfortunately, the United States of Mexico no longer applies.

Hey /trv/, looking to save a bit of money and avoid checking a bag in for my next trip.

I need a backpack I'd be able to stow under the seat, while also having a good enough amount of space to handle a few changes of clothes, electronics and weather gear for a 17 day trip.

Which backpacks do you guys use?
>>
not op

but ive been meaning to ask this, recommendations for bigger luggage? wheeled, duffel bag, crossover between the two? say for 2 week trips?
>>
>under the seat
That's pretty small. I use the Tortuga Setout and while it only fits in the above storage, it's the perfect size. The brand is fucking great and I can't recommend them enough.
>>
>>1579220
>Tortuga Setout
man that's mad expensive

are there any budget options similar that you know of?
>>
>>1579237
I mean what are you expecting here? I don't mean that in a bad way, but do you want something cheap and small just for one or two trips or something to replace your luggage altogether or? 25L? 35L?

You could always do the Tortuga uhhh setout? Their 25L version which is iirc $120. The Dakine Concourse gets good reviews and is a bit cheaper. Basically just go on Google shopping at type in 25L (or whatever size) for backpacking and you'll find better recs. I don't want to recommend stuff I haven't personally tried. I just like mine for the compartments, side opening, comfy and other misc stuff but the price is a little up there.

I guess this could go on /fa/ but that place is full of teenagers and trolls. You guys are better.
How to dress in Spain so as to not immediately look like a tourist? How do Spaniards dress during the hotter months? I've heard stuff like they don't wear shorts, don't wear tennis shoes and all that.
My wife(CHI) speaks Spanish so we wouldn't be full American tourist-tier, but I don't want to stick out.

I remember stressing about what to wear in Spain

Then immediately after getting off my flight from California to Spain, I met a Spanish guy in a Hollister shirt that says "MALIBU" across the front

Basically just dress fashionably. Skinny jeans, Scotch & Soda shirts.

As an actual Emirati, If you want to visit a city to experience Arab or Emirati culture or meet nice locals and feel satisfied, DON'T go to Dubai.

Dubai is the bottom tier city if you want experience Emirati or Arab culture because Dubai is one big pile of mess that's mixed with skyscrapers and too many attractions, it's basically a tourist destination.

Dubai isn't a place you want to live in and that's exactly why people feel no emotion in the city when they go there.

The city is mostly comprised of 95% expats and the only locals that live there are there for business interests. Dubai is so bad there is a reason why it's not the capital of the UAE.

If you want to actually visit a good or an okay city in the UAE, you can visit Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Al Ain and so many other cities but never Dubai. Not even a single Emirati permanently lives there because Dubai it's almost impossible to live there with all the insane traffic and heavy security.

Also Emiratis that live in the Emirate of Dubai don't live in the actual city and instead live in older neighborhoods like Al Awir, Jebel Ali, Al Khawaneej or Al Quoz.

Dubai is a city not build for people to live, it's built for cooperate jerks and business men to live there as a safe haven from taxes because the country is almost free from taxes and to make a quick buck from the tourist attractions they build using migrant workers.

Every Emirati i know only go there to buy stuff or have a nice vacation and never in their lives think of permanently living there.

Again, what are you interested in? Nature, weird shit, food? Nine days isn't much time. You could visit a handful of cities in Rajasthan or Himachal and Uttarakhand. But that'd also necessitate more time than you might like to spend in buses or trains.

It's kind of hard to say. If you have a train that ends up getting significantly delayed, you could lose a half-day or entire day.

Any tips for my first upcoming solo travel?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>1578762
Fellow solo traveler here, visiting Hong Kong at the moment. Go to a place with decent touristic infrastructure that interests you, optimally it should have many places you’d want to visit, also where you would be able to communicate with locals on at least a basic level.
My top pick for solo journey is Rome, overwhelming amount of things to see, great food and bars, easy to get around, most of young Italians seem to speak somehow acceptable English
>>
>>1578762
Inside the US (I assume) or outside? Interests? Picking a place with great public transport should be a big factor, at least for me.

That's a pretty open question though, what kind of stuff are you into? For me personally I like to do a lot of solo travel inside the US since I can hop on a plane to meetings when time arises. My favorite movie The Fugitive was filmed in Chicago so last week I spent 6 days going to every film location and random stuff to keep me busy, gotta find whatever makes you want to get out there and travel

Not OP but:

Any tips for someone who would get anxious alone?
