I have a lady friend from japan coming to London for 6 days in 2 weeks.
We’re gonna get busy but also need things to do.

I have ideas but more is always good. Any good evening bars or activities you guys recommend? Preferably somewhere more cool, but not partying or crazy. Rooftop bars etc.

Day activities too, good light art shows etc.
>>
>>1578362
What's your budget?
The Shard has a bunch of rooftop restaurants, the WalkieTalkie building too. Then there's Sushi Samba which also has an amazing view.
If you want somewhere cool but not too crazy Clapham is probably your best bet for nightlife although I haven't been there in a couple years so don't know what it's like nowadays. Check if there are any boat parties on the Thames too.
>>
>>1578362
I second shard, have cocktails by window at aquashard at night very cool

Also go Richmond walk by river from tube then go to park and look at the deer

I’m looking to travel to the English countryside and do some hiking while staying in Inn/pub in a quaint town. Any brits got any recommendations on where I should be looking?

The Cotswolds are as lovely as their reputation, but don't fall for any of the meme villages. Bourton on-the-water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, basically any name you see mentioned in a brochure are utterly ruined; to call them museum pieces would be a kindness. All you'll find is Airbnbs, a church, and a few ducks.
Hike out to bumfuck nowhere in the Cotswolds or any other British county and you'll find what you're looking for. Pembrokshire in Wales is another good one.

I've camped in half the counties in England; it's piss-easy. Ask at a local pub if you're nervous; they'll point you to a field where the landowner is cool with campers.

- Travellers Rest

but you have to do the associated hikes or it's not worth going

Is it realistic to travel and work as a chef? I'm not schooled in culinary arts or what ever but I have been working in different
kind of establishments since 6 years back, nothing too fancy really but I know the basics and can manage the working hours and stress.
I'm tired of my job, lack of meaningful relationships and not being able to grow further in the field I'm working in.
I'd like to travel around the world and learn to cook traditional food, local cuisine and finance my traveling hobby in the same time (I will have more than 10k to start with) but I don't really know where to start.
I'm not interested in western cuisine, since that's what I've been cooking.

Is my idea realistic? Where should I start and what kind of countries and restaurants should I aim for?
Anyone else did something like this?

do you think its not the lowest paid category of job everywhere you dumb fuck?

it really depends on which kind of resturant you're working in.
if you are flipping burgers att Mc Donald's you'll make peanuts, but if you're working at some fancy hipster establishment in brooklyn you could make bucks.
It's all relative and in northern europe it's a pretty good salary even at the worst kind of shit holes.

I'm thinking of heading to Laos for a few weeks when I'm done with Northern Thailand. Flights to Luang Prabang seem fairly cheap.

Any good advice/recommendations for things to do in Laos? I'm not interested in all the partying shit in Vang Vieng but I would like to try mushrooms and eat them alone somewhere if possible. Whats the deal with mushrooms, weed etc and is it available everywhere or just in the degenerate areas like VV?

Anything else to be aware of or avoid? All advice appreciated.

>I would like to try mushrooms and eat them alone somewhere if possible
your first time taking shrooms i suppose? if so i would advise against doing them alone, do it in a place where you feel really comfortale with other people around, preferably somebody that isn't on shrooms

i'm not trying to scare you into having a bad trip but try to be careful, you can really feel like shit during one.
>>
>>1576038

After reading about the various scams of being stopped by police and having to pay a big bribe to escape prison, I've decided if I do mushrooms it will have to be in a bar. I'm not going to risk possession, however small the risk of getting stopped.

I don't simply want to get wasted. I've wanted a psychedelic experience for a long time but simply have no access to them. Drinking mushroom shakes in some hippy bar wasn't exactly how I'd hoped my first trip would be so I might leave it now.

Thanks for the advice. I'll see if I meet any decent people to trip with, otherwise I might wait till some other time to try it

>crappy roads, and those roads really go to shit in the wet season
Shit myself while on a motorbike over that mountain pass between Luang Prabang and Vang Veing. Raining heavily and couldn't see shit because of the clouds, not to mention it was on an uneven crumbling road. Real stupid of me to do so in the rainy season like that, so I have only myself to blame. The views were stunning before the clouds rolled in though.

I've been improving my life for past year, going to uni in September, gym, made a friend. But I'm still lacking social skills and 19 year old virgin. I've got £4k and want to go for ~3 months.

If you want the Chad vacation, the destination for you is Cancun or Cabo, but for those across the pond maybe Bali or Ibiza.

If you want places that will make you feel like a Chad even though you aren't, try the Phillipines.

Which duty free shops have cheapest booze? Which ones are rip offs? I found ones in Manchester UK to be pretty good. Also in Ben Gurion Israel and a border crossing in North Dakota between USA and Canada was cheap on both sides. The ones at most US airports seemed to be rip offs. In Moscow they were all rip offs too. Oh Hong Kong was cheap also. Share your experiences?

dunno but I've met euros who actually think some of the duty free pricing at airports aren't that bad. My friend from Scandinavia as well as some of my friends from Germany/UK, were shocked a bottle of jack daniels was like 20 dollars outside the airport, same with shit like rum or many vodkas.

They figured the duty free prices were actually good because they never paid attention when shopping to prices.

Eastern China, Xiamen, ANA, Delta, Singapore and a few others, only brought Liquors and smoking products to you near landing or at taxi. Never seen them do anything else. Maybe the gifts like chocolates, shirts, or whatever small shits sure.

Anything in Australia at the arrival side is going to be a total rip off since you'll have no alternatives at that point.

I find that departure sides are usually ok wherever you are, Australia is a little less ok and China is pretty good but generally a big airport on departure side wlll have good prices and arrival side won't be as good, how bad depends on what kind of cunts the country are.

I live in Dallas and checking out Austin has been on my to-do list for a while now. Think of it like a 3-day weekend more so than a full blown vacation.

For urban shitholes like LAX and SFO, when you go through security be sure to placed electronics/passports/wallet in a separate tray than your carryon and shoes. Wait for the tray to enter the x-ray machine for a few seconds before going through yourself. Never allow the tray to sit there while you go through security because due to their shit security some nigger/spic might walk up and steal your valuables.

Also try to use the lane with the most white people or near a cop. Nigger TSA agents don't give a fuck when they see you getting robbed.

PSA: most Duty Free are rip offs.

This is the most retarded thing I've ever heard, you think 80% who flies internationally in casual clothes gets questioned hard at immigration because of that? I've been flying internationally for over 20 years and it does not fucking matter what you wear, they always ask the same questions - how are ya, where you going, why you going, (if for work) what work do you do, then you're off.

I mean I guess if you dress like you're an actual homeless person they would question you a bit more.

I am at my grandmas near Paris. I went to see how it is today.
It's kind of disheartening. The lack of roof and spear makes it really weird, the structure is only stone now, more cubic and lost some majesty. Ironically, the fucking scaffolding that might have caused the fire is still holding out.

I really hope they don't rebuild it with a meme post modernist architect. Apparently a French bank has some lands up in Normandy with trees centuries old that they plan to donate to rebuild the roof. Sounds promising for now...

Here's a pic.

1. I grew up in the regions and have never been inside with all the fucking tourist queues. I wish I had taken the time now.

2. Yes I might with renewed respect for the place. Will still be sad that it isn't the original wood and covering though.
