When you go on vacation with your parents, do they get:
1. 1 room with 2 queen or king beds
2. 2 hotel rooms
3. a suite
?

(I'm asking from an only child perspective, those with a lot of siblings of course might be different)

On the flipside, as a parent, whether I shared a room with my kids depends on if I was trying to smash the wife. One day, maybe two, I might share a room. 2 or more, kids get their own room and I am smashing. Exceptions are if traveling alone with kids, then may share. This was all kids below the age of 18.


One way to split the difference is stay in places where this more than one bedroom. Or a bedroom and pull out couch. One room and still smashing moms

I'm also 38, wtf.

I would go on vacation with my parennts, unless it's a shared house, like a swiss chalet in the Alps.

I've worked in China for about 10 years now and am looking to work in Taiwan. I'm 37 years old and have a misdemeanor marijuana arrest (no conviction from deal with lawyer, about 2 grams on me at the time) from when I was 18 years old. The record shows up on fbi criminal background checks. Does this exclude me from working the country completely? Other than that record from almost 20 years ago I'm squeeky clean. Thanks to Amy advice you can give.

Might be real, hard to fully know since 1. Chinese prison system info isn't fully public and 2. Leading researchers (Adrian Zenz) don't open source their info either and avoid peer review at all costs.

Based on the public info that is available, there probably are several thousand in prison for supporting separation groups in the region. The authorities have made announcements on these while some individuals and groups have expressed these people as martyrs or heroes, primarily because it's usually part of a Muslim extremist group, Wahhabi movement, or jihad of sorts.

These people and perhaps those with close association, are often Uyghur but not always and do include Hui, Kazakh, and even Han Muslims that want to establish a caliphate in the area.

China attempts to deradicalize ppl in poverty that do not speak Chinese and are at risk areas of radicalization by offering vocational institutions, many of which are called in foreign media as the same as re-edu camps. The difference is one is voluntary and the other is not. The ones that are not, are just prisons.

Many peasants see the first as a free opportunity to learn the country's language, trade skills for better jobs, and free meals and accommodation. You can actually see these same institutions throughout the country as they're targeted for the unemployed and poor, not just Muslims or Uyghurs.

Inb4 wumao. I just live here and was curious about the prison system so went out of my way to find out the difference from both the govt and local people.

In 3 months I am permanently leaving America for good and don't plan on ever coming back.

Before I go, I figure I may as well see some sights. What're the best things worth visiting before I leave?

Right now I'm mainly just planning on a road trip through California/Oregon/Washington and British Columbia, (with pit stops driving out to Yellowstone, Redwood, Yosemite) since that looks lithe only truly beautiful region worth visiting.

Anything else worthwhile?

Not everything I a veiled swipe at white people. Nobody doubts there are classless folks of all races. In a predominantly white country most of the worthwhile and shitty places are going to be predominantly white. In my experience there are a lot of really decent redneck folks though, I live in Boston and would prefer their company to many of the more "sophisticated" upper class folks I live among.

I'd like to go somewhere for about a week this fall. Flying out of Montreal. Have been looking at Miami and New Orleans, warm major cities with no covid restrictions.

Any thoughts /trv/?
>>
>>2069539
You're likely to get mugged at either place, so I'll say New Orleans. It's a whole other world. It's culturally more interesting.
>>
>>2069539
Depends what youre looking for really. If you want a week of expensive partying and beaches than obviousy Miami. Youre from Montreal so you'll probably be unimpressed by nigger orleans but it has some nice french culture sprinkled in.

Yeah I dont drink anyone so it wont be partying in any case. Just chilling out and exploring

>>
are you allowed to bring extra large luggage or specialty luggage?
you should take up outdoorsy hobbies - golf, ski/snowboard, scuba, hunting, camping - anything with a large case you'd have to spend extra on. cost of your flights could go to buying new equipment

many usa cities seem like they have nice history/local food/enough tourist attractions - but the people seem awful

Hello /trv/

I have been thinking about doing a day-skipper course with the RYA and then doing some /trv/ as crew on my next sally. I wanted to know if any of you had done this, if you would recommend it and any tips to someone who someone who has only been reading RYA handbooks and watching YT content so far?

I speak English, Spanish and a bit of German and French and I would most interested to start learning around the Mediterranean.

>I was looking at either going to Gibraltar or somewhere in Andalucia for training
wait, its possibl to train there in english?
> I've been reading handbooks
hanbooks wont help desu. you'r better off learning: buoys ,boa parts,feux de routes, the safety equipment ,priorties/traffic at sea by heart and practice your knots
>>
>>2069545
Ah well that is my rosbif geography then, I always just called that entire stretch into the Mediterranean, the Riviera.
Did you do any sailing in the channel when you were in Brittany? You don't need to be a sailor to know it's quite infamous for bad weather.
Yes, RYA have several certified schools working out of Gibraltar. I wouldn't mind taking the courses in Spanish (especially if they are cheaper) but it seems more practical to learn in English.
Are there any resources you would recommend I use then? I've got a few months working here to earn some travel money so plenty of time to hopefully get a bit of a head-start.
>>
>>2069561
>Did you do any sailing in the channel when you were in Brittany?
yea it was fine apart frm the part nar bréhat. had a lifting keel so we managed to beach on islands
tide is a bitch.
>Yes, RYA have several certified schools working out of Gibraltar.
where ca you see their bases?
>Are there any resources you would recommend I use then
idk i useda big sailing manual that this school lends. but i'd say th thing you usefor your motorboat licence an stuff about knotw online is fine. you only need like 3/4 of them daily
buy sea sickness medication though. not homeopaty. actual medication
>>
>>2069570
Really? Big waves or just a strong current? How big was the keelboat and how many of you were training on it?
Just google search RYA school Gibraltar, there are 3 or 4 schools operating there and I've seen a couple recommended above others on sailing forums. There are also English language schools in Marbella and Alicante for your guiri expats. Most of them will do a 2 week course for 1500 euro.
Ditto, I've made the mistake before although I'm not sure how effective medication can be. I've been practicing reef, bowline and clove hitch knots. I used to do these a lot when I was a kid doing scouting and outdoor work so these came quite easily. Any preference for medication so when the time comes I know what do shop for?
>>
>>2069582
>Big waves or just a strong current?
3/4m waves but it wasdue to the tide+current near bréhat. the islan is comfy af heaven on earth.
>How big was the keelboat and how many of you were training on it?
elan E4 i tink it was 34ft we were 4/5 in brittany
in séte i had adufour 325. we were 2 to man it. none of the boats are equipped with automatic pilotbcause my schol thought it a a bitch way to sail nd that saling 2 nights without sleep was th chad way.
this was th school btw https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Gl%C3%A9nans
>how effective medication can be.
mercalm works well but it makes you sleepy af
> I've been practicing reef, bowline and clove hitch knots.
yea those are the ones do buy books t read while on sail. big ones.

I'm recently divorced, from the US in my late 20s, looking for somewhere to escape the crazy place I'm living in for a few weeks or months over summer and maybe winter (I know Ukraine will be feezing, I don't care). I dislike my job, the politics, location and utter insane hysteria surrounding me in my state.

I've heard good things about Ukraine.

Extremely cheap in comparison to "the west" or at least where I am, good looking people who are mega based, low mask compliance (is this true?), interesting cities to explore etc.

Only problem is I've heard there have been lockdowns within the last year? Is everything open at the moment? I don't want to arrive and be trapped in my room if that were to happen with a lot of hassle. Are there any no-nonsense cities where people will just get on with life? I don't want to be shouted at wherever I go by angry babushkas or Slavic wrestlers for daring to breathe without a mask on like I do here in Walmart by angry people... Only other downside is Ukrainian and Russian are hard to learn as an English speaker, so do many people speak English?

Am I getting carried away or should I book my flights and hotels ASAP? I don't have any goals for being there, I'm a boring person with a small amount of savings to last a few weeks. I just want to enjoy and live my life somewhere different for a while, learn something new, I have never left the US but up for an adventure and it'll be for self development reasons like confidence building.

Anyone with info please inform as much as you can, Cпacибi!

What’s the safest way to travel with a large amount of money traveling lmaooo

I want to move across the country and I don’t got time to fuck around talking to landlords finding an apartment and fucking around blowing money or staying in sketchy Airbnb rooms. I want to just show up and be able to pay like 6 months rent upfront and just check the place out make sure everything is okay

I only have 2 local banks near me and theyre smaller local chains I won’t be able to withdraw anything where I am and I have no idea what I’m doing so also can anyone tell me how the fuck to find an apartment across the country lmao. I have a little bit of money but I’m not rich or anything

Like do I just padlock this shit up or shit. I know I probably don’t have anything to be worried about but I would be fuuuuucked

I actually tried to do something very similar. When I offered to pay exactly 6 months up front everyone was sketched tf out immediately. I had zero success trying to do this bc landlords, property managers, and others who rent have liabilities and require credit, background, referrals, bank account info, etc. esp during this eviction mortatoirum.

>Where are you trying to rent (approxiamtely)?
>what are you considering budget-wise?
>When do you want to move-in?
>the money is the easy part you can do wire transfers or carry it on you right next to a gun.

There's plenty of options. You will need to find a landlord who will just have you fill out a 1 page rental agreement, take a first month and security deposit and thats it.

I would avoid mentioning the 6 month deal. It will also protect you in case landlord tries to evict you in 30 days. Anymore questions feel free to ask.

>I actually tried to do something very similar. When I offered to pay exactly 6 months up front everyone was sketched tf out immediately
Where the fuck did this happen? I used to pay several months up front in Chicago to various landlords for years; they were elated to get the money since it meant they wouldn’t have to bang on my door for it.
>>
>>2068564
that's what I thought too like how fucking stupid can they be I am literally giving you all thousands of dollars up front but yeah they were not having it. I just wanted a sense of security and not have to worry about paying rent every month. None of them could accept cash. Almost all of them were property mgmt companies others were real estate agents who were also property managers. When I did find a landlord who took it he would only accept first month and security deposit and do month-to-month. It wasn't an upper class area but it was very nice and they prob had zero problem finding dual income renters. It was def not a Chicago type city.

The good news is it actually ended up saving me a shit ton of money this way bc I was able to close on a house in 3 months. And landlord was like see ya later good luck.

So in conclusion try to find a month-to-month landlord who will take at most first and last and security and go with that until you can/want to change your living arrangement.

Don't listen to most of these faggots.
Get Google Fi for your phone plan. Free international just about everywhere. I have used in Bean, Colombia, Bong, Spic, Frog, Wop, and NotKraut. Free text, data, phone, just pay your normal rates.
Do stay with others unless you don't like people. Use tinder or grinder or whatever to expand your circle.
Eat local. Eat street. It will always be serviceable and cheap. It won't kill you if you get it hot.
Luggage = Backpack only. Don't even bring anything else except a daypack that fits in your backpack. I recommend Kelty. Boyscouts makes cheap Ouray knockoffs but you'll have to modify to remove BSA shit.
Don't drink local water you haven't boiled for over 1 min.
Download offline Maps on Google so your data doesn't hamper your ability to navigate.
Bring a compass, mirror, whistle, life straw, and first aid if you're gonna be innawoods or hiking more than 1 mile away from civ.
Oh, also don't be a dipshit and go hiking in summer in Arizona. You likely won't live, even on a girly hike.
