How do you get free plane tickets?

Depends. I've had some flight completely overbooked, they sold seats for 700 bucks credit+hotel for the night.

I've also had a flight ask me the day before if I would sell my ticket for 550 dollars on a flight, just went back home to sleep and came back the next day. Missed 1 day of vacation but overall, was able to use the voucher for a new trip.

How worth is using tinder or similar apps in Colombia?
>>
>>1719134
Worth it, albeit significantly more worth it if you can speak Spanish well. Not speaking Spanish limits you your dating pool considerably.

People on /trv/ complain about Colombian Tinder being full of prostitutes, Green Card-hunters and gold-diggers. I'm not sure if people here are exceptionally ugly, but I've never encountered this. With few exceptions, most of the women I met off Tinder were well-educated and willing to split bills. None of them pressured me into or asked for a relationship or suggested that I buy them things.

I recently flew from Maine to california for the first time in my life. I am from rural maine and we went to Los Angeles. The whole ordeal was very... I wouldn't say negative but the implications I was thinking about made me feel ill. There is a whole group of people on that coast that speak the same language as me. Eat the same foods as me, etc. Yet.. we are different? Like I felt strange and almost alien like being in LA. I don't want to go back. Not because of anything negative but just seeing the large swaths of barren desert between maine and california made me want to puke. I remember seeing like small farms out in the middle of nowhere. No trees around for miles just large swaths of arid earth. Just thinking about it is making me feel strange.

I don't do much travel if you couldn't tell. I will never understand people who travel all the time. Like to me, maine and moreso the town I am from is home I guess. I really didn't like being away. Just imagining the distance between the two places is intoxicating. Maybe I am just not built to travel? I feel cowardly though for not really being into traveling. Its just so strange to me how much space is between that place and where I am now. So much just barren arid earth. not even sure what states we flew over.

Yeah, you didnt need that disclaimer.
You just didn't like a place. Try going somewhere else. Going somewhere in the US and saying you feel like an Alien is so depressing to think. Go and actually be an alien.

>>1712402
damn bro you sound like a fucking pussy psychologically and physically.... wahhahahahah surroundings are different than where I'm originally from. Yeah no shit didnt you know that the entire world isnt like your rural shithole
>didnt even know the states we flied over
yea this is why people joke about our education system, when you dont even know the states in your OWN country I think you might be a mental retard

My advice is gradually but slowly start escaping the hick bubble you live in, how about if the LA trip is too big for you you start smaller like NH, VT, Connecticut. Get yourself more in the groove of going to differnet places by youtubing googling etc foreign places. Do anything other than staying in your rural shithole and fucking deer with your imbred family. Jesus christ I thought rural men had a set of balls and were tuff.
>>
>>1712402
I get part of that feeling. I was so on edge when I got halfway through Nebraska and it turned into nothing but brown hills for hundreds of miles. I felt like a rabbit looking for cover lol. But I got over it. I didn't bother to go to LA; I'm more interested in the national parks.

Driving through burned areas of California was even weirder but I got over that too. I think if you had spent more time out there you would have gotten more comfortable even if you still didn't like it.

This

So, I heard the floodings were kinda normal at this time of the year, but it still made me realize that Venezia is sinking faster and faster each year.
When do the floodings usually end ? I'd like to go for a small 5 days trip as soon as possible, to enjoy it while I still can. I'm in vacation from 15 january to the 26th, do you think that would work ? Or maybe I should wait for may or june, but there may be more tourists ?
>>
>>1719233

With all the global hysteria about the floods (which are tidal, therefore natural, though they're getting way higher then they should be) it's probably the best time ever to visit, also considering it's winter so no cruise ships.

Will there be another out of the ordinary event like what just happened? It's a possibility.
>>
>>1719246
Are the monuments still open during the period ? And do the floods usually last like 2h a day or several days within a week ?
>>
>>1719258

Everything will be open.

Floods happen only about a handful of times a year and only last for a few hours. The extraordinary level of flooding is extremely rare (like the last one which submerged the whole city).

Tldr: the city is always above water unless super high tides and extraordinary conditions are reached

I just go there and try to have cool interesting experiences. I like to go to places that aren't typically visited by foreigners. I enjoy not being dependent on a bunch of things so I usually don't have that much luggage. Most of all I don't really think about it. I don't travel to feel better than others, I travel because it makes me happy.

*FAQ (aka shit you should stop asking)*
>Where should I stay in Tokyo?
Anywhere on the JR Yamanote loop line.
>Is Hiroshima+Miyajima worth it as a day trip from Osaka/Kyoto?
Not really, it's too rushed and you should probably just stay the night there.
>Is Miyajima worth visiting when the floating torii gate is under construction?
Yes, it's still a great place to visit.

>>1718387
oh
take the bridge because the ferry doesn't run then, it can get pretty icy in the straight and there probably isn't much demand outside tourist season so it stops from christmas to may
https://www.ferries.ca/ns-pei-ferry/schedule/
skiing runs as long as there is snow

if instead of taking the trans canada from riviere du loup, you go further up to rimouski and take the 132 across the gaspe there's a couple small hills by amqui and campbellton

Good insight anon. Didn’t realise it was that tough from US.

yeah it's not fun if you live outside a coastal area with a major international airport. That post didn't even include if you have to park your car and pay 10-20 a day to keep it parked in some instances.

My friend to go to asia needs to either bus or get a friend to drop him off at Chicago airport(4-5 hours depending on traffic), get on a flight and look for a direct flight which would probably be around 1000 USD direct(14 hours). For that time just to bus->get there in time for flight+flight to Tokyo, he's looking at a minimum of 1 day travel and possibly one day wasted resting at destination after. So if he does a 2 week vacation, he's going to essentially be only enjoying 9 or maybe 10 days tops depending how flights roll.

Or he could drive his car for a few hours and have options of blue ridge mountains, Chicago city, Nashville, or a short flight on smaller airport to canada, mexico, or somewhere in the us and be there ~10 hours or less. He'd also be in a somewhat similar timezone, and have spent far less time(by 2 days at least) and money.

If you get lucky it can be cheaper. I flew to the Philippines from Chicago via Shanghai and paid $315 a couple years back. It wasn't round trip but those were also cheap if you looked.

ATM there're countless deals for US to Shanghai, Chengdu or Bejing for $370 r/t on Delta, United, Cathay, Air Canada and others.

I thought we were talking about foreigners living and/or working in SEA. Only as a pot-smoking backpacker without a degree will you get less than 700/month teaching in SEA. That same backpacker will get 1000/month working without a work permit in Vietnam. With a degree they are starting at 1200/month in Thailand. Managerial, Q&A, IT, even call center work in SEA start at 1000+ (usually 2000+) per month for foreign talent. And it's not like they are poaching the best and brightest from Western countries, you just need a relevant CV and be able to talk the talk.
