Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

I was in Beijing for 2 weeks. Good food and street culture, people are friendly but as a foreigner they will stare at you, mostly because many Chinese themselves are tourists in big cities visiting from farmland, I got a bad virus from food but hey thats a risk you take since they have different health concerns..

It's pretty real if you have a high profile that isn't approved by the establishment.

Xu Xiaodong had his life destroyed for exposing fake tai-chi masters and stuff.

What are your experiences with Sub-Saharan Africa? I've been thinking about traveling there sometime. I read about some countries and it looks like for example Botswana is fairly safe and has a beautiful national park. Also South Africa looks interesting, but I heard crime is pretty high there.

Africa operates fundamentally different to the Northerm Hemisphere. Getting work done is never the priority. There is no sense of bureaucracy. Good relationships and good rapor with people are necessary to get anything done. Favours are done for favours, not because some guideline says something should be done.

To be asking these questions means you probably aren’t ready to travel there. Do some research first and come back with more nuanced questions, these are too broad.

I'm interested in visiting France, particularly the Hôtel des Invalides and Notre-Dame de Paris. But I'm concerned by what I've heard in recent years about migrants intimidating tourists. I've heard it's common for migrant men to force, say, necklaces into the hands of foreign visitors before surrounding them and demanding money, calling anyone who refuses to pay a 'racist'. I'm also concerned about the hightened terror threat. Although I appreciate that I'm unlikely to be blown up or otherwise harmed, I find the very sight of antiterrorism barriers, and of heavily armed policemen, extremely distressing. (It's been years since I've visited London for that very reason.)

How worried should I really be about any of this? Have I been misled, or is France really as bad as it sounds?

There are whores in every country, it that's your thing just head to Paharganj and you'll find many massage parlours with beautiful ladies, they're gold diggers tho and know how to annoy you out of your money, if you don't care that much about quality just walk to GB Road and you'll find all kinds of cheap whores, sex slaves from Afghanistan and trannies.

Also, do not think that because India is a poor country with a shitload of miserable people that it means they do not understand money or luxuries, I'd say that the middle class in India is probably better off than most here in the West, most of the houses I visited were spacious and confortable, don't forget shit is way cheaper over there and that kids aren't really expected to leave their parent's homes.
>>1910673 is correct, it's a long game, I never really dated in India, but when I met a prospective match her grandma was the one to invite me for a small gathering, I still talk to her family to this day, lovely people but not exactly hook up friendly, I plan to meet them again when I'm back in India.

Yeah, that was stupid, but in my drunk tourista mind, I thought he would share some stories about how life is in Rome as a drug dealer, like when you smalltalk with normies asking what they are doing for a living. I only realized after his reaction that this is a undercover cop-tier question to ask.

It's one of the only travel cringekino stories I have to tell, but now it reminds me of the time when I was chitchatting with a couple of girls in Utrecht while waiting for a bus to Germany.
I told them at some point I have been a bit too close with a passenger girl in the previous bus I took to come to the Netherlands, and that when she left to go back to her weird Dutch brutalist surburb, she didn't seem too happy that I pressed my butt a bit against hers at some point of night.
One of the two girls thought I was an absolute creep, the other was surprisingly humoring me in good jest, considering she was a vegan punk feminist type of girl living in Berlin.
During the night trip, she made a funny grimace at me when border guards stopped the bus to make sure no one was smuggling weed, I shrugged back at her, she laughed. She was a cool girl.

I'm not autistic all the time, but sometimes I can't help it.

It worked for me. Obviously I'm good at what I do from a technical standpoint, but those hard skills are more and more in ready supply by people willing to work for less. What separates people in a corporate environment and determines who gets promoted isn't merit, its merit + "leadership". Leadership is really just a euphemism for "how well do you fit the mould of cultural ideas about business professionals".

Unironically, labour anthropologists like David Graeber helped me to better conceptualize how to get ahead than any business book. You need to be extremely good at what you do to get ahead, but if ability is not matched with political and cultural accumen you wont get promoted past a certain point.
>>
>>1910879
Probably not unless you have personal clients coming to you, Data laws regarding credit, personal info, etc are sometimes limited to a specific country. No clue where you are but when I fly through China and some spots, can't have my work laptop on me. Luckily with a chromebook I can power wash it, use in guest mode, and roll; then dial into my AWS machine for any work needed.

You're basically going to need to ask or start your own business.
>>1911334
>>1911501
Doesn't work for everyone but actions speak a million words. I started out taking some non paid internship at my community college fixing desktops, then I basically used that exp to work my way up via the social network. Now I dick around in the world doing fuck all.

Sometimes it takes going through some shit to get to the end goal you want, it's one reason people give up on this life style early on because generally to get it/do it, it's going to be a little shitty at first.

Pro-tip for everyone in this thread.

> You need to be extremely good at what you do to get ahead, but if ability is not matched with political and cultural accumen you wont get promoted past a certain point.

Get a certificate/experience in "Diversity and Inclusion". It's taking over corporate land. Even contract positions through Upwork benefit from having "training".

Get a passport, good luck moving anywhere that isnt Latin America if you dont have any money or strong family ties.

Move to a different state and good luck

I used to hate Americans before I met them.
After meeting them (and this was in Japan) I was surprised how pleasant most Americans were, and I thought it'd be awful because it was Japan after all.

What you said is true about Euros. They're fucking repulsive, walk around naked, leave their personal belongings in public places, think they're "enlightened" and often start retarded political talk for no good reason.

If there's one thing I learned indeed is don't judge a book by its cover. As a South American I'd have expected most Euros to be on the less annoying side, but it turned out I was really prejudiced against Ameriburgers. You guys are alright, Euros are entitled brats.

For me saving money, being downtown near public transportation, being able to socialize with people, and have a few pointers about the local scene

up to you, most hotels are around 50 or so a night hostels ~12-15

>>1911610
Hostels are the way to go 100%. Parties every night, socializing 24/7, cute chicks, losers who buy drinks for you just to hang out. OP, It's the best way to travel.

I've spent a lot of time in the Caribbean. I wouldn't live there because if the shit hits the fan, the locals go after whitey. There are stories never told of white folk living there who were ordered out of their homes by the black gentlemen militia after hurricanes. If the US enters a depression and tourism dries up for a number of years, expect cannibalism. Nice region to visit, though.
