Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:
>Budget
>Interests
>Level of understanding of the local language(s)
This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

For all other matters:

I already told you not to come in the other thread. And for 18$/hr? lol. wtf are you thinking? There's fuck all to do here after a day or two unless you're city hopping with airfare and dont mind dropping thousands. I can't even find a job right now. I know three indians kids that found jobs and I can't find one. They're replacing us with indians. There's an entire ponzi scheme around immigration here, entire business that harvest immigrant dollars to sell shit to immigrants that immigrants will need in a never ending parade of immigrants. Most young people I know are trying to leave. I have family moving to western eu to gtfo out of here, anything to get away before they close borders again and dont let us leave. They just banned more guns and are actively disarming the population. Their text parsing algorithm is reading this as we speak. I promise dude. It's a trap.

This is too true. I got a nana girl. I spread her legs and her pussy was so fucking wet and bright and pink and she had the perfect curves of a beautiful fit lady. She had a nice asshole too and she told me to rub it. She squirted on me twice. We were fucking in literally every position imaginable and she apologized for not doing more. The last time we were fucking she literally ripped the condom off me. It was such a fucking surreal experience. She texts me almost daily asking when I'm coming back too because apparently the $200 I gave her was some exorbitant amount of money.

Why does literally EVERYONE in this country try to scam you? The only exception was the brit who hosted my Airbnb, everyone else from this country tried to rip me off.
>>
Like, forget using any taxi, they won't use their taximeter and if they use it, it's manipulated and multiplies the price by 10. Use only Grab where the prices are already fixed, though even then they can find ways to charge you extra (like for the toll in Manila which I'm pretty sure is already included in the price).

When I arrived there and needed to transfer terminals, I asked the airport security where the shuttle bus is, he said there are none (which is a lie) and that the only option is the taxi. The taxi driver scammed me and the airport security is in on the scam.
>>
They'll even try to rip you off in other countries. A flip chick tried to charge me 500 euros for sex in Amsterdam. I could get a real European for 50-80; the less honest ones who rip people off would charge 100-150, which is still a far cry from 500.
She had the audacity to tell me 500 was "normal," as if I've never been to Europe before. Bitch please, 500 could probably get me at least twenty of you in your own country.

Honestly, I would avoid it except maybe for Carnival season or Jazzfest until someone goes Bloomberg on the blacks. Crime is ridiculous, much of it goes unreported; things weren't great under Landrieu 10 years ago, but between Cantrell's ethno-narcissism and the US's newfound belief that blacks can do no wrong, if only we knew how much worse it could be.
>>
>>2360778
No, absolutely not. Take it from someone who lives there. I have no idea why anyone would step foot on Bourbon St. aside from listening to little niglets bang on trash cans and buy overpriced beer. There's enough trendy spots for hipsters to graze on, but you can find the exact same places elsewhere in places that aren't complete shitholes.

The streets smell like piss, shit and weed. Everything is run down and dirty. The people are fat, depressed and on drugs. The only "good" things in this city are propped up by carpetbaggers with their parents' credit card.

The White areas of town have some charm (mainly on St. Charles and Magazine streets). But the Black areas are, without a doubt, the most run-down and destitute urban areas in the "developed" world. People live in shacks with holes in their roofs and termites eating at the foundations. Their form of "fun" is doing donuts in the intersection and blaring bounce music at the fried chicken joint. Oh, and committing homicide. New Orleans is the murder capital of America right now, which makes it the most dangerous city in the developed world. That's not because of just guns or the pandemic. It's due to long-term structural deficiencies. It's a city that needs to die. Turn the FQ into an open-air museum and raze the rest into the ground.

Suffice to say, if you're PAYING to go there, you should immediately ask for a refund and then question your own sanity. If you're getting it for free, it's not actually free when you get your shit stolen.

most of the time they would be like "why did you do that?" or make no comment about it. a few times i had girls who really liked it and would ask for it. one girl legit demanded money for plan b and wouldn't leave til a gave her a 50 lmao, she didn't come back. not sure how it is now but when i was there in 2019 there was no child support treaty or anything with the USA so i didn't really give a shit

the girl i ended up dating over there for a few months was like 19, big into cosplay, and i guess no one had ever done that to her before because she discovered she liked it. that was a real good few months just firing off inside her a few times a day, she'd legit scream and beg me to do it and spread her legs wide as shit. i think about these memories a lot, i wish i had filmed it. the costumes were very much involved as well. that was the best i ever had desu

>You actually need a reason to own a gun here and getting permits is a hassle. Also even then it’s not like you can legally use your gun for anything other than the hobby. The reason why we have such little firearm crime is cause it’s difficult to get/own guns.

Why in the fuck is owning firearms such a fucking fringe thing for countries to allow? Even in America it’s damn near impossible to own a rifle without getting your dog shot because the barrel was 0,001 inches too short or some over dumb bullshit… even if your not into rifles why tf can’t I be allowed to defend myself from robbers or getting mugged?

Accidentally ran into one near Torrey Pines in San Diego. My first instinct was wtf, my second instinct is "oh shit I shouldn't be here" and my third thought was "humans are just weird-ass looking apes". Any fantasy allure a nude beach might have had was ruined by how flabby and wrinkly the average American is. Everyone sort of looked mostly the same without clothes.

Honestly, it’s not terrible because I like what I do, and I save enough to retire early. Burnout rate in the field is absolutely insane, though, and I don’t think it’s right at all for most people. I’ve been able to balance it with my other interests and having a relationship to this point, but that’s partially because I have no desire to make partner and am ultimately just doing my time until I have the financial security to slow down.

It has afforded me the ability to do things that I’d never have been able to do otherwise, but I don’t think I’d make it if I felt like I had to keep up the hours for the next 25 years or something.

So, decent, I guess?

It is mostly LARP'ng liars.The net is even more full of LARP'ing bs than real life because they can get away with it more because of anonymity and lack of context. If someone at my workplace LARPs about how they are always on business class flight everyone will know they are lying because we know their base salary and about how much overtime they are pulling. On the internet you don't have such context so everyone thinks they can claim they have 8+ inch dicks, that they make $200,000+ a year, that when they go outside and women try to impale their pussies on their dick, etc.

I booked last minutes tickets from Newark>Athens. I had to overpay because of it and ended up paying $700+ for coach/economy. Out of curiosity I checked how much first/business class was and it was $6,000+. I think even people making low six figures would balk at that. Only people making $300,000+ would consider such an expense worthwhile for an 8-9 hour flight.

I've always used Expedia for flights, hotels, rental cars, etc. It hadn't even occured to me that there may be a different way to go about traveling. Is there another method that you guys use to book your stuff instead of using Expedia (or one of its competitors)?

Why wouldn't you book directly from the operator?

Skyscanner is a great place to start. It shows a ton of airlines. From LAX, I found $540 to Switzerland on Swiss Air in January for a ski trip.

I also check Lufthansa and Alaska Airlines. They both have special landing pages for any deals they have going. I got a flight to Munich for $500 on Lufthansa last summer. Out of LAX, that's pretty much as cheap as it ever gets for a direct flight on a good reputable airline.
>>
Use any site you want, but at the very least take the time to compare prices. I've had instances where the prices on third-party websites were exactly the same as booking directly, or just marginally cheaper. I don't bother booking third-party unless I can save a significant amount of money.
It's generally less of a headache to book directly, because it holds the airline/hotel/etc. accountable when something goes wrong. If you book with Expedia or some other site, they'll pass the buck on you. The airline/hotel will tell you to take it up with Expedia, then Expedia will tell you to take it up with the airline/hotel.
>>
I normally use those kinds of sites as a starting point. Even if I don't actually book anything, I can still see what my options are. They are super-handy as I can find flight options that I never would've considered, and they're even more useful for accommodation because I know jack shit except for a few major hotel brands.

hotel manager here
expedia is that weird hipster website only the occasional boomer uses for some reason.
most people book directly via the hotel's website or maybe booking.com.
booking direct is the way to go. 3rd party sites fuck with your refund/cancellation policy too much.

>flight gets delayed
>booked directly with hotel
>"hey can i reschedule my booking?"
>"sure"

versus having to spend hours and hours on hold trying to reach some chink in Singapore about your booking.com booking only to be told to fuck off
like seriously 90% of my job stress is retards booking via a 3rd party website, selecting "Non-refundable" to get a slight discount and then wondering why they cant get a refund.

Bros I tried it, probably in the easiest city on earth to do it (Melbourne), and I only made it 3 nights before I said fuck this and got a hostel.

I don't know how the fuck he does it, he must have ZERO fear response, extreme low inhibition. I tried to sleep stealthed in a lot area but I was so scared, every little sound could be danger I literally lay there heart pounding. And I was too scared to get in my sleeping bag so I used it like a blanket but it was freezing.

Next night I just tried sleeping at the bus station but it was so scary there were homeless and crackhead there and the security kept waking me up and hassling me. Third night I was just so fucking exhausted I slept in the day in a park up until late evening and then just stayed up all night, and then finally got a hostel. It was so worth it, to feel safe, to shower, to have some sort of feeling of "home".

I don't know how he does it. I'm so scared of some junkie of crackhead waking me up with a knife in my face , or I've watched liveleak videos where people set homeless on fire in there sleeping bags. What if someone just snuck up on you and threw a brick on your head when you're sleeping? It's too scary. He must have nerves of steel.

I'm travelling to Jakara Indonesia in about a week to visit some friends. It's going to be my first time there. What are some things I should do while Im there? How are the women? Im 19 btw if that matters.
>>
There's two Jakartas.

If you go as a backpacker, it'll be tough. The streets aren't walkable, the traffic is a nightmare & it's hard to quickly understand the place.

If your friends are expats, it'll be completely different. Expats in Jakarta live an amazing life. They all have drivers, cooks, cleaners etc. They know the city, they'll take you to amazing hotels and restaurants. You see the slums, but you're protected from it. Although you're just with some mid level manager from Australia (for example), it feels like you're royalty. When I travel, I'll often want a chance to go off my by myself & do my own thing. Jakarta isn't the place for that. Try to hang with your friends as much as possible, assuming they're relatively well off expats.
>>
>>2363081
Local women will suck your dick and get nude, by they want to protect your virginity. For pros/semi pros, there a number of famous hotel bars where they work from. They'll go home with you and expect a 'tip' which is the taxi ride home + a little extra, depending on how attractive you are. This info is from 10 year ago but it's probably much the same.
>>
>>2363081
Stick to your friends, Jakarta is dangerous and crime-ridden.
Women are hot but they’re Muslim so you’ll see plenty of hijab and it’s going to be very tough dating one.
Degenerates just go to Bali for drugs and cooming, why don’t you ask your friends what’s there to do in the city?
