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.

I never understood that American concept of kicking your child out at 18. Why the fuck would I want to go pay 1500 dollars in rent to some anonymous rental company, or live with a bunch of mongoloids in a shared house. I was 25 years old with 5 million pesos still living with my parents because why the fuck not? Mom cooked the best tendies, did my laundry, and made played scrabble with me. She knew I had money, she knew I wasn't there because I NEEDED to be, but because I wanted to be. If I really wanted bang a whore, their is a place called SOGO short time hotel here in the Philippines. 10 bucks for half a day.

Now my wife has taken the duties as my mom, except I get to have sex with her. Amen, god bless Christianity, and god bless the Philippines

I'm convinced that people who read these maps have never used the local rail services in their life. Been working in the lower 48s for a while and had to use the rail services a bit. Every amtrak is the same

>>2012176
>there is no reason to use outside the current existing routes
I dunno, looking at the map, I see at least 1 route that makes sense. Right now, to get from Houston to Dallas, you have to stop in San Antonio, and Austin, and Fort Worth, then you get to Dallas. Nice little sightseeing trip of the 5 largest cities in the State, but just having a route that goes direct from Downtown Houston to Downtown Dallas (where their stations are) would be competitive with the Southwest flight.

Of course, Texas is looking to build HSR for that exact route, but it'll be years before that ever goes live.
>>
>>2012187
>Right now, to get from Houston to Dallas, you have to stop in San Antonio, and Austin, and Fort Worth, then you get to Dallas.
THESE ALREADY EXIST however no one fucking uses them because all the brown people. I am flying to Austin next week and using a train to get up to DFW, that was until I saw the price and times; then I just got a fucking rental for 45 dollars dropping off at DFW for my flight out the following week to NY.

>Of course, Texas is looking to build HSR for that exact route, but it'll be years before that ever goes live.
Which is the problem AMTRAK would also face regardless. No one wants trains in the US since it's easier/cheaper to pay for something to the airport and back out.
1. At an airport I know my car is safe
2. I can easily uber in/out
3. lots of airports, not all, have some kind of express shuttle out of them or metro line

Train stations have jack shit of those features, so once you step off the train you're literally at the mercy of whatever local rules they have and agreements with the taxi companies. Like look at vegas, they killed the metro going to the strip->airport simply because taxi companies made such a stink. Anyone who doesn't realize this bullshit would propagate over is fooling themselves

I have lived a year in the city for work, so I hae the outsiders perspective.

As a European I was kinda baffled by the shit nightlife that others have mentioned itt. Things that were better than my rainy cold and dreary hometown were the climate ofc and just the natural beauty of the place. You can see Peroquets and Lizards and other weird creatures in the park. Food is also great, because of the immigrants.

The Chinese takeover is pretty blatant especially in the inner city, but that is just funny to me above all things.

Also the rents are pretty high sure, but not as high as I've thought. Maybe I just got a decent deal with my place.

I just my first software engineering job. It's fully remote so I can live wherever I want within the United States.

I'd like a city with decent outdoor recreation nearby. I'd like a decent singles scene and somewhere that's not insanely expensive (I'm making enough that anywhere that isn't NYC, San Fran, Seattle or DC is probably ok).

I'm considering Denver, Portland, or maybe one of the ring cities around Seattle. Any other options I should consider or thoughts?

I worked out in El Paso for 6 months. It's not too bad, as far as cities go. Nightlife is alright, plenty to do outdoors if hiking is your thing, I went skiing twice on the little mountain an hour and a half north in New Mexico. The people there are far thinner than they are in the rest of Texas's cities, and everybody explicitly speaks English because they are American and proud of it. They look down on Mexicans over in Juarez. It's no San Diego, but I'd say it ranks #2 on border cities.

Boss wanted me to move there permanently and take over that jobsite. Hard pass, I don't want to live in the fucking desert. I had nosebleeds the whole time, much prefer a humid climate. Being in the middle of the desert is the main problem, which is the same problem with Phoenix and Vegas.

You're in my exact situation. I've been strongly considering
>Greenville, SC (drawback is lack of lakes and rivers)
>Anderson, SC (drawback is it's very small)
>Chattanooga, TN (unsure of drawbacks - TN river runs through it but I've heard its polluted to hell)
>Knoxville, TN (seems pretty good but lots of hicks/rednecks. I'm conservative but these people are just retards, not the good southerners)
>Gainesville, GA (comparatively high cost of living. Although you can probably go anywhere ok lake Lanier and have a great experience)

I was in Columbia SC the week before last. Very hot since the city is in a bowl compared to the area around it. If you consider this city, look around Lake Murray and maybe consider Charleston instead if you can afford it.

If you don't mind liberals (literal reparations taxes) consider Asheville, NC. Very nice mountain city with loads of breweries which implies singles. Probably stinky hippy singles but if that's your thing, fire away.
>>
>>2012115
Just to expand on the Knoxville thing, that place is really awesome in terms of recreation and has a great singles scene. University of Tennessee is there but it doesn't take up the whole city like other college towns. If you look on a map you'll see Ijams Craig, which has both rock walls for climbing (little hook things are already screwed in the rock face waiting for you) and a quiet lake for swimming. You could also swim in the river but it is definitely polluted, i'd suggest kayaking instead.

An absolute major positive to this city is the proximity to Smoky Nat park, but also
>fontana dam
>fontana lake
>lake santeetlah
>cherokee reservior
>cherokee nat'l park
>norris lake
>norris dam state park

then if you decide you don't like this city in particular, you're in a great spot for moving to other cities close by that might suit you better.

I would recommend the Anacostia Community Museum (easily the best Smithsonian museum, hands down), then a walk through Fort Circle Park. Beautiful place.

Hard to pick a favorite restaurant or bar but imho Dan's Cafe comes out on top. Others might disagree though. Some prefer Ben's Chili Bowl, which is known for its food but doesn't really have much else going for it.

The DC metro system runs fairly regularly any time day or night and will take you anywhere you need to go, Georgetown to Arboretum. I would recommend relying on that rather than renting a car or using Uber.

Americans with false senses of security leads to nigger ass situations and more niggers niggering shit up.

>>2012074
Because just like every vlogger out there, they are:
1. Tailoring the content you see to their users for the views those people want
2. Have different post edit decisions as to what they want left in and what to take out
3. Meet different people in different climates politically, socially, etc. Nothing is to say they aren't the 5th vlogger that week

Most vloggers are going for the stereotypical or "slightly off the beaten path" shit to make their viewers feel well informed when realistically they are just doing same old same old. It's insanely easy to fool people into thinking you are some travel guru by editing out the dumbshit you do.

Hello /trv/

I need some advice and are wondering about similar experiences.

PreCovid I travelled a lot.
Mainly, Asia, Africa, South America.

During my travels I met a lot of females. Some I had sex with some I didn’t.
I kept in touch with quite a few. Nothing serious, just added to IG, WhatsApp, WeChat, line.
But since Covid travel restrictions, I’ve noticed a recurring issue.
Many of these females are asking me for money now.
These are not bargirls, or as far as I know prostitutes, just regular girls I’ve met, maybe had a beer with or connected with socially, some romantically but over half are just people I’ve met travelling.
I added dudes I met travelling too, but obviously none of them have asked me to give them money.

PreCovid this shit never used to happen, but now I’m shocked by how regular it’s becoming, and frankly disappointed too.

The truth is and it’s a hard truth, not all but many women who travel frequently are scum.
Absolute scum.
They travel out of necessity not pleasure because they’ve been so awful back home they have a reputation and are travelling to get away from it.
As such they don’t card who they rob, lie to, mislead along the way.

You are correct. However that erases it from civilians (aka employers) being able to ask about it.

It still exists for law enforcement, professional licensing and immigration matters (although the wiping by a judge will be a big positive factor)


Most of the time immigration is worried about crimes of 'moral turpitude' and DUI is not one of them

Lol I have a DUI as well and I have travelled for more than 15 countries in the past years including Canada where it is a big deal

HOWEVER, it depends on how it is punished in your country/state, examen in my country aka Mexico the first DIU is just like a traffic ticket, it doesn't go into criminal record until you get catched 3 times.
