which is different from the place being the most dangerous. im talking about trashy, just generally insufferable people to live and be around

my vote would be for the south shore of staten island. 1 of my friends from queens joked that this place is basically "the bronx for white people

I've felt Upper West Side to be almost wholly soulless, as well as Williamsburg and Dumbo. Basically any region with trendy transplants from the midwest that lack any organic identity, in turn resulting in the area they inhabit having no identifiable identity or characteristics. They may not be trashy per se, but they are definitely insufferable in their lack of self awareness.
>>
Depends on if you're a transplant or native.
If you're a transplant, the punching bags are Staten Island, Suffolk County, or (to a lesser extent) Nassau County.
If you're a native, the punching bag is any neighborhood full of transplants (Williamsburg, Upper West Side, Park Slope, etc...).

Doing a road-trip there and back first week of June with some friends...driving from Toronto.

Any recommendations on whether to see Saint John, Moncton, Fredericton/any combo of 1 or 2 of them/etc.

Just general advice on what to see/do, and what's even possible with the lockdowns in place.
>>
>>1804217
I think NB has the most lax lockdown in the country. Saint John is the nicest looking city IMO. Reminds me of an old colonial city and it feels way bigger than it actually is. Moncton has the most to do though. Frederiction is definitely the worst of the three but it's not that bad.
>>
border with quebec is closed, might not be open by then
there isn't a whole lot, but you can conceivably get there or back with one long day of driving so a week is a good amount of time, but it is mostly scenery, moncton is the biggest city and one of their biggest attractions is magnetic hill, a hill that it looks like you're driving up when you're stuck in neutral
I'd include the gaspe, get to rimouski on the first night, then take the long way to get to campbellton in a day
take the acadian coastal route out to shippagan and get to moncton in a day, stop at capers in miramichi, it's on the highway
from moncton you can go to hopewell rocks, but I'd say you don't have the time for two full days of the bay of fundy, I'd skip hopewell and go to saint martin, the sea caves in your pic are there, spend a full day to see the tides change, there's also the fundy trail parkway, kind of a ripoff if you're only doing it once
can spend a night in saint john and fredericton, go up the river, not on the highway to edmunston
so in terms of nights 1. rimouski 2. campbelton 3. moncton 4. saint martin 5. saint john 6. fredericton 7. edmunston, I don't know might want to get further into quebec this day, but that's 7 nights

Saint John is like a white people Detroit, it's "colonial" looking because it's run down and has its original buildings. I think the average income is sub 20k, unemployment is 70%, and the whole town stinks like ass from the pulp mill (literally that and supermarkets are the only employers). Dont go to that dilapidated hellhole.
>>
>>1805328
I actually think SJ is really nice looking. It's a little run down yeah but it's cheap as fuck to live in and there's enough to do there that it's worth visiting even just for a day. I always heard people say it smells but personally I could never smell it. The unemployment is high as fuck though I'll give you that.
>>
>>1805328
Saint John is slowly turning around, especially the uptown. I lived there for a few years and only once smelt the mill. Moncton is essentially a giant suburb transplanted from the GTA and fredericton looks nice to drive through but there's nothing there. There is lots to see between saint john and st stephen, I wouldn't avoid the area.

Once you can travel again somewhat normally, where should I go if I'm a fairly broke, 22-year old university drop out (at the moment) that never really traveled?
Spent most of the last few years as a practically friendless shut-in, am a legit sperg and just really want to see the world before deciding on what I wanna do with my life and spending the next 50 years in some office, lab or workshop.
Also, I'm German, so no college debt I need to repay first.

>>1806239
I was in your position but worse, because I dropped out at 19 with college debt and bereft of motivation to do anything. I spent an entire year in my old room just playing videogames and wishing I was dead. If you aren't ready to go back to university or will eventually go to a trade school, make the fullest use of your time and start creating a list of things you want to do in general in a foreign country, then afterwards create a list of countries (or regions of Germany) that you are interested in. I never wanted to go to Italy, but after developing an interest in futurist architecture and art, what better place to visit than the wellspring of said movement? Even if you don't have an interest in a particular country generally, you can narrow down your scope to particular cities or regions that might have something relevant to your interests. I unironically want to visit German east Frisia just so I can have the chance to hear the last embers of their dying dialect. I don't give a fuck about most of Germany anymore, but there are certain places that I either romanticize/idealize, and others that have dumb things that attract me. Another place I want to visit is Dusseldorf, both because of it's beauty and the mustard they produce. That shit is like heroin.

Travelling around Europe is piss easy and can be relatively cheap, specially if you already live there. Literally just open up a map and pick up a place.

Maybe save your money - you probably won't be able to do anything substantial for a while. Once you can, use that money to go through SEA - Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, etc. Its cheap and pretty wild. To be honest, I'd recommend this kind of thing over an autistic culture like Japan because it will bring you out of your shell a bit and give you an opportunity to meet outgoing people instead of awkwardly sitting silently with a bunch of weebs.

I have a steady of flow of around US$ 500 every month plus more than 10 grands in the bank. I'd like to live abroad for a while, a year tops. Of course I'm interested in travelling around, but I'm mostly attracted to the idea of "living" someplace else: renting an appartment, cooking, watching TV, doing shopping, etc. I'm not interested in finding a job, but I'd be interested in doing some volunteering or joining a club or a gym.

I'm basically looking for:
1. A country were tourist visas allow me to stay for a long time and are easy to get
2. A country/city where food and rent isn't that expensive (I dont mind sharing a house or flat)
3. A country where foreigners with no residence permit can open up a savings account and rent property (this might be impossible)
4. A country where there's lots to do, people are friendly and life has any sort of distinctive quality
5. A country where winter isnt that harsh

Thanks

>Is Russia safe? What sort of precautions should you take there that you wouldn't take elsewhere?
None. Unless you are travelling to Dagestan or a small industrial city in Siberia, Russia is surprisingly safe. Walk around at 3am anywhere in the city, without a care in the world. The biggest danger you'll encounter are tourist scams.
>Are the girls cute?
Yes, but it depends on age really. There is a stereotype that Russian women over 30 or so are ugly and age like shit, but its really not so true. The average age of marriage in Russia is about 27 for men and 25 for women, so because of this, it may be more difficult to find single attractive women past a certain age. I don't know much about dating in Russia when in late 20s or early 30s, but if its anything similar to early or mid 20s dating, you can disregard any stereotype about Russian women, either positive or negative. Another thing to keep in mind, is that Russian dating culture is very different than in America. I don't know if its the same in your country, but Russian people dont really go on dates as much. Never go to dinner with a girl from tinder, because its really just mostly people in committed relationships which do that. Mostly if you're meeting a girl from a dating app, its more like doing free stuff and "hanging out", rather than going on a structured date like dinner or drinks.
>Did you go there as a NEET or were you studying/working?
I was a NEET. I lived off of saved money, and didnt work (the tourist visa wouldnt allow work anyways). There are opportunities to study Russian at universities there, regardless of age or past education level, and courses are very cheap or even free.
>>
>>1805639

>Did you meet any over 30s expats over there?
No, but I know for sure that there are plenty of them, especially in Moscow. There is no doubt though, that expats over 30 in Russia are mostly there for business and work. Professional types. It would be difficult to find NEETs and such over 30 in Russia, whereas more of them probably exist in places like Vietnam, Brazil, Peru, etc. This would just be my guess though. I think that the expat population over 30 is more laid back in othet countries, and more serious and work oriented in Russia.

Thanks again. Don't know if you're still here, but did the police ask you anything at the border control when you said you were staying for a year? Did you have to show like a bank statement or something? Did you get a health insurance?
>>
>>1806153
Whenever I left or returned to the country I just showed my passport and tourist visa, since the visa is multi-entry. I had to show a bank statement with at least 5k I think, when applying for the tourist visa, it may have changed. I bought private health insurance shortly after I got to the country, since public healthcare is reserved for taxpayers for the most part. It was only about $35 a month for a relatively comprehensive plan.

Anywhere on the JR Yamanote loop line.
>Is Hiroshima+Miyajima worth it as a day trip from Osaka/Kyoto?
Not really, it's too rushed and you should probably just stay the night there.

Yes, it's still a great place to visit.

The pilgrim trail network on the Kii Penninsula. I hiked the original approach trail to Koyasan last year, that's a one-day hike but if you wanted you can continue on from there and rough it in a tent for the next week or so to visit the other important temple sites in the area. You might even be able to go all the way to the Ise Shrines, but I'm not sure how much of the original network survives.

My ten year anniversary trip to the Carribean got corona'd out so we are looking to travel next year instead. I am a huge weeb and she went to Korea for a summer in college and wants to go back so we are looking into going to Japan and Korea next year.

The problem is that she is paranoid about booking everything ourselves since neither of us speak either language. Does anyone know of any decent travel agencies that just take care of the booking for you but let you build your own itinerary? All the tours that I found from the links in the OP are pretty breakneck speed and give you no time to explore anywhere while trying to rush you through the tourist hotspots which is not really our style.

I will have a small camera if I just want to do just normal walking shots, but if I am going out to take photos that day, I want nice quality. especially for landscaped, I don't plan on lugging around the GS-1 all day to look for the right spot, it would mostly be for a spot I found and will take later. since I'll be spending about 2 months there, I'll be a week or two in each main place I stay.

>>1807810
I'll probably do a camera bag for travel (like on the plane), but a smaller shoulder bag for day trips when I'm there. I probably will bring a tripod for when I want some types of landscapes, night shots, etc.

I just want to do it justice since I started photography in Japan when I went there a couple of years ago.

>need to subscribe to at least 1 monthly gun magazine
This is the first I’ve heard of this rule. Maybe you live in a shithole that isn’t Queensland, but that rule sounds like bull.
>must be a member of a gun club (and attend regularly
Not true, you can have a license for shooting on rural property as long as you own a property or know someone who does. Recreational target shooting does require membership, but unless it’s a handgun license or you’re in a shitty state you don’t actually have to attend regularly.
>It keeps out the faggots that just want a gun to be edgy or who only want to kill people. Means the community’s actually right with /k/fags
Fuck outta here, you still get just as many school shooter types, and the Australian shooting community is filled to the brim with fudds and their pals, just look at the biggest shooting organisation in the country; the SSAA. You’re absolutely dreaming if you can find me any /k/ommando who’s happy with the state of Australia’s gun laws, as the General on /k/ is always filled with poor cunts lamenting Johnny’s laws and wishing shooting was more accessible. >>1793105

>so literally only bolt action/muzzleloader then?
Not necessarily, we have straight pulls just like this poof cunt talks about, and lever actions are also readily available. There’s no difference or extra hassle in purchasing a straight pull rifle or shotgun as opposed to a standard bolt action or double barrel, and lever action shotguns are also available. It is true that we generally don’t allow full & semi autos, but they are still available to people who require them for work

There isn't much to do there. Very little nightlife accessible to tourists. The locals all want to leave for a reason, since its a doomed micronation with no future besides a tourist stop off point and offshore casino setup for chinese.
