So you're sitting in your room. You're in a foreign country and you don't speak the language. There's bars nearby. What do you do?
>>
>>1539925
Check on Google maps to see what the nearest sights are and decide if I want to go any or not.
>>
Watch youtube in bed all day
>>
Ok what about at night
>>
>>1539939
Check to see if there are any eating spots nearby worth checking out
>>
Hard mode: no alcohol at all
>>
>>1539961
Go to a bar, order some food and a soda, chat with people
>>
>you don't speak the language
i google how to say yes, no and thank you
>>
Well, for starters, not be autistic and post on 4chan.

I'd fire up tinder and find something nice warm and wet to sink my cock into balls deep.
>>
>>1539961
why talk about a bar then? Also depends on the country
>>
>>1539925
depending on my mood:

A) pick up my skateboard and start hunting for spots

B: find the closest fighting gym and hope its a good one. learn the word for thank you and be ready to nod a lot a lot.

C: find a good place to people watch go there with my book and a coffee.

wtf we have the exact same interests

I love skating abroad and I always go to BJJ gyms whenever I go. It's such a good way to meet new people
>>
>>1539925
Watch the local TV, I might pick up a few words or learn a bit about the local culture by observing it.

Maybe book a trip to some cool local sites with the concierge at the front desk.

I dont drink or go to bars back home so I'm not doing it abroad either

i think we have crossed paths on here before. we should be irl friends. where are you based out of? are you ever on slap?
>>
are you autistic? Drink until you can speak the language.

Question why the fuck I didn't plan anything to do for that day. Seriously, I don't travel unless I have at least a few things planned for each day.

This sounds like some ultra niche shit problem, anon. Can't really tell you how to do something as vauge as this
>>
Search for places that speak English. There’s always someone
>>
Hard mode wasn't me. I was too tired to hit the bar. Was more just curious what everyone would do
>>
Body language goes far

But honestly it’s quite foolish to go to a country that speaks a different language without studying any expressions at all prior to the trip.

Don’t you want to talk to the locals and get some culture in ya?
>>

Agree with this. I'm in Taiwan and have resting bitch face, so I have to constantly try not to look pissed off. Even though I'm happy 95% of the time.
Saying that, I'm with my girlfriend and aren't interested in hookups. But it'd be great to be able to just discuss things with people who aren't just staring because she's dating a white person.

Going there in a couple of months, how often do you encounter people that speak English?
>>
>>1540729
this sounds like the dumbest hissy fit shit possible
>>
>>1540732
I don't, really.
A few people at Starbucks speak a little. Can't ask for stuff like "can it be warm, please?". The occasional tourist attraction.
Found a bar last night where the dude spoke fluent English, holy fuck was I surprised.

I was just joking dude, that's fucking depressing

This. Bar food is different from regular food, so long as you're not in Canada.

Go for a walk
