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:

The Philippines had long been a destination for degerante cooming, jungle trekking, and eating rice.....lots of rice

Can I live there for 400 dollars a month?

Should I build my online gf a house in the jungle province?

Will I be robbed by a gang of street kids with no shoes?

> Her name was Eudocia Tomas Pulido. We called her Lola. She was 4 foot 11, with mocha-brown skin and almond eyes that I can still see looking into mine—my first memory. She was 18 years old when my grandfather gave her to my mother as a gift, and when my family moved to the United States, we brought her with us. No other word but slave encompassed the life she lived. Her days began before everyone else woke and ended after we went to bed. She prepared three meals a day, cleaned the house, waited on my parents, and took care of my four siblings and me. My parents never paid her, and they scolded her constantly. She wasn’t kept in leg irons, but she might as well have been.

The cooming in the Philippines sounds great, but how's life aside from that? Is it one of those countries where your life kind of sucks even if you have money or is it one of the ones where you can live like a king? Wouldn't want to go somewhere long-term if I couldn't get a nice apartment with decent amenities.

Hey, I did a similar route in May. If I did it again I'd spend more time in Tuscany, it's in my opinion the most beautiful part of Italy. I stayed on agriturismo sites which was a good idea.

Tuscany is the nicest area. There’s a village I stayed at for a bit called Corfino which was comfy. Had an outstanding view down the valley.

I have wanted to go to Brazil for years. I like nightlife, also scorts and sex oc. A friend told me Colombia was super dangerous (he went there for 2 weeks) so I have two questions:

- It is too dangerous to walk in sao paulo looking for fun?

- With inflation, will everything be extra expensive?

I saved up 430k at 25 y/o (lucky through investing, cashed out entirely) and I'm semi-retiring to eastern europe. I come from a STEM background so I'll get some remote job based in America, if I make more than 20k usd/yr (laughable wage) I'm set. Or maybe get a masters and work in Europe.

I'm sick of living in suburban hell America. Wasting hours every day driving and sitting in traffic. Working a non-remote job that bores me. Most people around me are fat mutts. I can't live in the center of a city unless I want to spend my entire wage. It's not worth wasting my youth over this when I can start a family in a cheap and white country.

I've estimated my annual cost of living at $1400/month in eastern/central europe. If any anons think this is a bad idea lmk because my flight to europe is in 2 weeks srs

OKC is a decent metro area, plus you've got Tulsa, Indian casinos and easy access to the Dallas metro area. Definitely a low tier state but it has some OK things.

Incidentally this is why so many 30-somethings in my country here in cucked West have shit salaries. They just think they need to ask for a reasonable number when negotiating a raise and hope the boss agrees. That is not how you fucking do it, you gotta be the Asian bazaar hawker. You want 7% raise? You ask for 10-15. Start with 7 and you'll walk out with 2-4 and curse your boss for being stingy ass when he just played you. This is especially important if your job involves dealing with contractors, how the fuck would your boss trust you to haggle with them if you can't even do it when your own salary is on the line? Haggling is a pain to learn in adulthood but boy does it help with a lot of things and traveling in SEA is a great crash course.

A guy from Finland here. While Fins are not exactly racist, we don’t have any manner of larger than normal black guy fetish scene here. I would say a black guy will have harder time pulling here than a white guy.

Park reservation system ultimately led to me not going to Disney World this year.

If I'm doing a two week theme park holiday with more than enough time to do everything at a slow pace, I don't want to micromanage it and feel rushed around the whole holiday. I want to wake up, decide I want to do Epcot on that day and not worry if it's 11am getting into the park after eating out for breakfast.

It's fine. I'm a Floridian so going there isn't as big of a deal. It doesn't seem like something worth going on a flight or long car trip for though. It's good if you need to make a kid or girl happy or if you have enough money to not worry about your wallet getting robbed harder than a Haitian infrastructure fund. The food there is actually pretty nice and fun, if you can afford it. I think the presence of multiple parks makes it a lot more tolerable as a vacation spot because you won't get cucked out of experiencing something you'd travel for because you wanted to take your kids to meet Peter Pan, since you can see foreign stuff at Epcot, and nature stuff at the animal kingdom.

It's always interesting when people recommend Cincinnati, I'm surprised people love it. I imagine those who are so impressed by Cincinnati are from Fort Wayne, Kalamazoo, Topeka or some other shit tier Midwest city. It's really not an interesting city and there is nothing noteworthy nearby, unless you're an autist that loves planes. If you love craft beer or travel extensively in the US, then I'd say it's worth stopping by at some point. It's hilly so there are some nice views and there is some nice architecture. It's not a shithole or worthless place but there is no reason to visit Cincinnati unless you're already in the US and are looking for places to go.
Chicago though is a great city. The point the other anon made about it being a filter city I agree with fully. I recommend Chicago to anyone visiting the US, but would never recommend Cincinnati, Grand Rapids or most of the cities in this thread to people who don't already live in burgerland.

Safety in most of the world really depends on your lifestyle. I don't go to bars or clubs so I'm safe in 98% of the world apart from scams or pickpockets. Southeast Asia is very safe especially in the wealthier communities. I don't like huge cities because they're full of the countries' trash. Argentina and southern Brazil are safe in the wealthier communities. Porto Alegre is kind of a shithole despite its name. Colombia is a shithole especially after Covid.
>>
>>2309314
large swaths of the USA are just as safe if not safer

yeah the USA is in decline. nobody with two brain cells to rub together could possibly disagree. but keep in mind this is decline from being uncontested top dog of the globe by basically every single fucking metric. europeans basically faint when they hear how much americans get paid and what the price of homes are, don't let 4chan memes fool you.

If you work remotely, you may as well just move to a super rural area of the United States. Easily can find a house or a place to rent for less than $1000. All the cities you listed will fuck you in the wallet.

The USA is safe in the rural areas, particularly if you have a gun and a yappy dog.

I'm going to Barcelona to visit family in a few weeks (spur of the moment kinda trip), flying from the US. What should a US looking guy do there? What should I eat (I love seafood)? I've never been to Spain and my Spanish is very rusty. Will be there end of august and early september

Excellent advice, I'll hopefully be able to reference this thread when I'm actually there. Love the food ideas and suggestions as well, as well as the clothes suggestions. I like to think I have *some* sense of style, I just opt not to use it in favor of a spartan lifestyle that is outdoorsy, but I can clean up. Thanks for the reccs.
Regarding drinking, I've often times had social drinking quickly become problem drinking, so that's why I abstain. I might make an exception for this because it's vacation and I don't have to get plastered, but it's not a necessity for me. I can have a good time without alcohol.
