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.

So I thought of maybe doing some camping in Japan after reading about it on Wiki Travel, but I still have one question about that. Since its Camping and Hiking, I have to travel with a large backpack for all my gear. But I would also like to visit some cities and not just hike the countryside. Is there a way to leave my backpack somewhere safe? I imagine that walking around in Tokyo or Kyoto with a large backpack is not easy and it would be inconvenient. Any thoughts?

I think they sell dxm syrup too (new Bron solution, vs Bron solution which is codeine) but I'm pretty sure they put that gualfestin shit in that brand. if they sell that over there I'm positive they sell the dxm pills too
also how the fuck do you get addicted to dxm that shit's terrifying

Question to those who live in Japan (Tokyo more specifically)

Have you used or do you have any comments on Nuromobile or UQ Mobile?

I'm moving for my Masters for 2 years (to Tokyo) and need to find a SIM Provider. I don't care much about voice plans, data should be enough, and 5g would suffice for me.

Alternatively, how difficult do these companies make it for me to sign up with them if I buy a sim free smartphone from elsewhere and just want to use their plans? (from what I've researched they always seem to want to sell you their phones+plan)

While some people are cringe in suits that don't take care of themselves or fail to clean up the right way I noticed to that what I'm wearing effects how I'm perceived in other countries.

I usually only go for the salaryman look and I'm taken more seriously than some guy dressed up like the epitome of a tourist right off a plane. Though of course I don't wear a suit to the beach or if I go biking.

What possible company would hire these guys as experts? They just did teaching and babysitting jobs aside from a failed bike repair shop. Their chinese is far from fluent and even if it wasn't, Western born chinese or university educated speakers will take all those jobs for less pay.

I've only used AirBnB once before in Delhi and it went smoothly, the host went above and beyond to accommodate us.

I recently just booked an AirBnB in Salzburg and I told the lady that I would be checking in around 2100 at night (thats the absolute earliest I can get there due to the time my plane lands). And she sent back "the latest check-in I can do is 1800 as I have a late job." Is this normal for AirBnB's to be flippant to the customers or what?

These problems are being solved easily in the recent years in touristy cities - airbnb just gets severely limited. For example, in Amsterdam you can't rent out for more than 30 days per year, in New York you can't rent the whole apartment, only one room. Bang, problem solved.
On the other hand, in many places airbnb is a godsend. For example, in most cities in the US that aren't New York, Miami and San Francisco there are few tourists anyway and airbnb is like 1/3 of the hotel price. Same goes for Australia.

Yeah I knew a guy who did Airbnb in Brooklyn. He liked the flexibility more than the money because he said he would make more with one person renting out the room. He just knew he would get sick of the same person.

I'm bored and I figured /trv/ might have some interesting questions for me, so fire away. First the basics.

>Who the hell are you and why should I care?

I am a cross trained agent for Piedmont Airlines, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines.

>What is a cross trained agent?

Ground based airline employees are generally referred to as agents. For example, someone who works the gate would be a gate agent, someone who works on the ramp would be a ramp agent (AKA fleet service agent, and sometimes shortened to "ramper"), plus ticket counter agents, baggage service agents, bag room agents, operations agents, etc. etc.

At regional airports, staffing restrictions mean that there are not enough personnel to have individual agents for individual tasks, which is where cross trained agents like myself come into play.

We are trained to fill multiple positions, and in many cases all positions. I fall into the latter category. I am fully trained and routinely work at the ticket counters, gates, ramp, operations, baggage service office, aircraft cleaning, security searches, emergency response, and more. I come from a rather large regional airport, therefore unlike most other cross trained agents I am fully trained for both regional (American Eagle) and Mainline flights.

I brought small amount of hashs through on international flights a few times in my luggage, but I won't tell an airline narc how I did it. Dead easy.
>>
>>1544583
Only ever worked in my one station. Eventually I want to go mainline, maybe to a hub, but I haven't really decided yet. My end goal job would a be a premium customer service agent. I enjoy interacting with people, and customer service is something most of my colleagues say I am genuinely exceptional in. As for our union, we are a CWA station.

From Toowoomba Queensland. Why bother coming to Queensland the other states are nice and has less pricks and cunts. Easier to get a lay and make friends if you’re a bogan. Hard to meet decent people and 90% of the decent people aren’t born and bred in Queensland. Literally met one decent Queenslander and it’s my current GF but her parents are both migrated germans so does it really count though? (No it doesn’t). Move to Melbourne or Sydney far nicer culture. Unless you’re planning to party all the time at the coast or Brisbane.

>tfw almost finished with university

It's a shame I only have 30 days per year now available once I find a job. I think this year will be smaller too bc of finding a job, you have to work 6 months before you can take vacations. It will allow for a couple of shorter trips though, I could easily do three 2 week trips to different countries in a year. I'm a slow traveler, what I saw in Latin America took me nearly two years.

My goals for the next years are
>USA
>Mexico
>Guyanas
>Rest of Brasil
>East Asia

Don't really care about Australia, South-East Asia, Central Asia or Africa (I'd go for a Safari) but who knows maybe I'll discover my love for that in the coming decades

I mean, I would personally pick either SoCal, the Bay Area, Seattle, or Miami.
