Tell me about the logistics of moving to Pitcairn.

For those who don't know, Pitcairn is a UK overseas territory in the mid-south Pacific with about 50 residents, descended from the Bounty mutineers. Also, they will give you land for free if you move there.

>What the fuck free tropical island property how has nobody else done this?

There's nothing fuckin' there mate, no stores, no utilities, nothing. You'll truly have to fend for yourself. Also there was a scandal where a few pedos were convicted of CP. Which, remember, "a few pedos" means about 10% of the total population. And of course, nobody wants to move somewhere they haven't already visited. Visiting Pitcairn is one of the most expensive trips you can do.

That being said, I am seriously considering this. I'm growing fed up with society and would like to move somewhere where I can live comfortably and make my own way without worrying about all the modernist shit going on. Tell me more about why I should or shouldn't start a life on Pitcairn.

>a few pedos were convicted of CP
A third of the male population, were charged with child rape. Half were convicted, including the mayor. His replacement was then also convicted of posessing more than 1000 pictures and videos of child porn. Visit if you're inclined, but don't stay.

I'm not a pedo and don't condone pedophilia, but the phrase "free island property" is too good to pass up. Besides, what are we supposed to do, just let them be? Nothing will change unless you go there and change it. Replace the pedos demographically and eventually raise a majority to shun them.

That being said, I did a little more research and found something somehow even more concerning. Apparently thousands of people *have* applied to live there, but only 1 ever actually got accepted. This is because there is a $500 fee on the application and they use that to run a scam. They don't actually want anyone moving there and upsetting their pedo haven; they just want to trick gullible boomers into sending them 500 big ones for literally nothing at the promise of free land that they'll never have. That's the real reason nobody moves there -- you can't actually do it.

That being said, if anybody has more information or would like to shift the topic to a similar but more reasonable community, I'd love to hear it.

Where are your favorite cities or general areas to spend 2-8 days in? Somewhere you can feel settled and have a good time after just a short time.

I've got family and other obligations next year, but I'd like to go somewhere that's not the homeland for at least a little bit. I'm in Burgerland so bonus points for cheap flights from there, but all destinations are welcome. I'm thinking somewhere in Mexico, Guadalajara idk.

Pic unrelated. I'm trying to go someday, but that'll be a longer journey.

>Baggage handling abnormalities
Never had any issues in my multiple trips on Eastern China Airlines or Xaimen all work fine, just make sure you have at minimum 2.5 hour layover; Korea/ANA/JAL I don't ever question all have very high standards, probably higher than your average US based ones. Xaimen is actually really damn good and got a huge work over by the chinese government, free wifi for all(chinese monitored duh) but overall great flying, most of the time if I do a late flight they put me near the back and space out most americans to have a seat next to them or a whole row like I got 2 times.

>Even worse passengers, I’m guessing it’s the same shit on every airline
Chinese airlines will have more chinese, same with korean bound, or japan bound. Overall I don't mind it since I usually am leaving at night so I pop some sleep aid and dose off shortly after dinner unless it is a midnight flight.

>Odd delays
China's on time ratio is like 60-75% for most airline flights, this is due to how much of the airspace is military no fly zones. For that I usually like a 2.5-3 hour minimum flight layover. Though overall going through china is pretty painless especially PVG, Xaimen and some other places where you "leave" the airport only to come back in for a connecting flight is kinda weird but you get a free 24-72hr visa depending on your layover. Xaimen if over 12hr booking gives you a free capsule room or business room in the airport hotel.

>Same cabin quality as other carriers
Close enough to where I don't care, Eastern China air is the dirtiest I've flown and that was similar to a united airlines flight in the US

>rest
When booking make DAMN sure you check your layover times, one reason they are so cheap is because they are on overly tight layovers. 90 minutes or less? don't book unless it's like through NRT or ICN.

Also
Going to almost always need to take an hour metro to get from an airport to a main city most the time for a layover
Whatever nationality the airline most represents understand how to say fish/beef/chicken/etc in that language english is usually pretty good but I never count on it
Asians snore, they all do
Bring your own movies if flying chinese airlines, they have english subs usually but they are editied by the chinese government so stupidly
Don't try to make small talk with people around you who are asian, they will just bring their kid over and want to use you to practice english
When in China airport for a connection, never smile, look like you are an npc and keep walking. Do what everyone else does
Expect delays in the summer/early fall months due to Pacific storms

Ecuador sounds p sweet. Flights look cheap for where I'm out of.

Wikitravel said Ecuador is great for moto trips, but all I'm seeing is Dadbike-BMWs, which are sweet honestly but way nicer than I want.

Cheapest I can find online is $85 per day rental. That's absurd. Has my experience renting shitbikes in SEA ruined me?

Are the places with websites just nicer than I need? Can I find local places when I'm there that'll do a 5 day rental for ~$200-300? Anybody done the bike thing there?

You might be able to buy a Brazilian CG125 for that price. Start advertising it for sale as soon as you arrive. Worst case just give it away when you leave, or drop the price 50%

Hey guys 2 weeks ago I ve been in Paris for work. Iam 23 latino guy and I met a russian super stunning girl in champs elysse. I think she was the hottest girl I have ever met and it was just amazing! The kisses the sex everything. Unluckily I couldnt see her the last day cuz she was busy moving and I wanted to tell her that it was really nice.meeting her and Iam going to europe next month again. But I only have her wsp and 2 days ago I think she change number and I dont know how to find her!! That last day I felt soo bad not seeing her that I wen to drink ans fucked a ukranian girl she was nice but I couldnt and I cant stop thinking in her!!! She is so beautiful and have a body ufff. I feel bad because at first I thought I achieve my goal fucking the hotest girl I have ever met or see but then I started thinking about she and it was too late, I was gonna take my plane in 2 days and i couldnt see her :(. I just wanted to know her better inviting her to dinner in a nice traditional cafe in Paris. I feel so crap that maybe I am not gonna see her or know anything about her again. I try browsing her wsp pic in google and I found 4 more pics of her of a photosession company from UK I think. I dont know what to do contact that company or I dont know. Thw only pixs I have with her was having sex and I am hating that. I feel screwed!

she basically finished her work in france and going back home probably, she used a local sim card. your only hope is that she actually texts you with her new number, otherwise you can try to find her social media. I know the pain I fell in love with an escort too.

no. I mean some are exactly like that but obviously only people who enjoy that kind of atmosphere and naive korean girls book a room there.
you know the beauty of living in hostels is that you can leave any time if the place sucks. it never happens to me because I either read the reviews or go there beforehand personally to get a feel for it but I guess if one were to accidentally book into a party hostel you would realize the moment you check in and still have enough time to fix your mistake.
the area also matters. if you book a hostel in the red light district and later cry a river that theres druggies everywhere youre frankly retarded, same if you book one in the workers suburb and complain no one wants to party midweek.

I can only assume all the people itt who actually think people get killed and raped on the regular at hostels are like you and base their worldview on movies. I've been living in them for cumulative years and the worst I've seen were a few drunk fights with unfortunate endings. just think for five minutes about the hostel youre booking.

But actually in conflict zones they find you, meeting them is pretty low key because they are usually local and hopefully your the guest of someone who isn't the local government plant.

In Laos you might meet Chinese baked insurgents, little Thai, shan groups.
mostly moving opium, glorified farmers

In Kashmir rebels are a dime a dozen, and in India naxals aren't exactly discreet.

Tell me more

OK so I have to preface this by saying that I'm not a bold traveler and I never lived/traveled in a country were there are no-go zones or where you would think twice about going anywhere on your own at night.
So maybe Germany is not a warzone but to me it might still feel dangerous/violent.
So on the one hand you have terrorist attacks. On the other hand you have racists and neo-Nazis and I am a target for both, so I'm worried.
I went down the rabbit hole and now I cannot stop reading accounts of violence that I never knew about. At this point I don't even care about racism, desu, unless it's physical and violent.
My intention was to spend 2 years in Germany. Learn C2 German during this summer and then do a masters at some university.
I'm probably going to stay in some west German student town for the whole duration of my stay.
Am I worrying too much? Will I be safe or will I have to watch my back all the time?

After one year of employment you are eligible for external transfer.
How long does it take to get a work visa if you are transferring from hotel chains without a sponsorship as they only sponsor manager status.

Anyone ever got a work permit from Ontario???

It's usually a "are you worth enough to move you into the US" thing, why would a company spend thousands of unnecessary dollars to ship someone off to America, file tons of paper work, and various other things if they could find someone locally easy enough to do it. You need some kind of skill set, experience, or what not to make it worthwhile.

>Bermuda, but they were willing to sponsor visa easily with the same company.

Bermuda is a territory with a fuck load of agreements and what not to make it economically viable to sustain itself. It doesn't have the luxury of the US where there is an overabundance of unskilled workers ready to work in a hotel.

You retards keep talking about H1-B, which is for skilled labor. A hotel cook isn't considered skilled. It's basically retard-level labor. OP would have to apply for a H-2 visa, the same thing that Mexican farm workers try to get.

Chances of a hotel wanting to waste time and money getting an H-2 visa for some dipshit cook: 0.001%.

OP, you need to start practicing sucking your manager's dick, then pay for the manager in Hawaii to fly up to Canuckistan so you can suck his dick so well that you convince him to bring you down there so you can keep sucking his dick every night. Remember to swallow his whole load. Picrelated, people who have worked this system for decades.
