I'm going to be going to peru and probably bolivia by the end of this year hopefully. Most likely I'll be there about october-december sorta time. I understand this would be the wet season, would that cause any problems or anything I should consider? I don't like heat and sun so I'm fine with it being a bit less hot/sunny and the occasional downpour, but it won't cause problems with traveling around in the mountains will it, visiting macchu picchu and cusco and stuff like that? I've also got a couple eager peruvian cuties lined up from interpals, but it almost seemed to easy. How do I avoid getting my organs harvested? Any other general tips would be welcome, I've never been to LATAM before, but I know spanish.

What places in the US, or in the world, have the best small towns to live in with a nice community to be apart of? Towns that are great places to raise a family. I thought some small towns in the Midwest and in West Virginia were pretty kino.
I like the idea of attending a small town church where we have all types of events and church fellowship dinners. A place where my kids could have a bunch of local friends they can go and see regularly. Nice local nature to explore in a place you can safely leave your windows open and doors unlocked. An area that is more pure and innocent where the focus is more so on community and simple living.

as far as the mountain west goes these towns have

1. all been turned into vacation rentals. even if you're not priced out they are just transient places with a core group of locals who probably don't even want to be there. tourist trap towns like whitefish, wallace, sandpoint, leadville etc.

2. are full of californians who have ripped out whatever small town character you are fantasizing about long ago. bozeman, breckenridge, etc.

3. meth/opiod epidemic destroyed them, many such cases

upper midwest is probably your best bet, but its not really a sexy place. im not gonna spoofeed you that much but just be aware the mountain west is done. not only is it socially ruined the whole thing burns every summer.

Your yellow dot is inside of Jozsef korut, but I'm pretty sure I drove past that building this morning, and it's outside of Jozsef korut. That area is firmly nyolcker. It wouldn't be at the top of my list of places to stay as a tourist.

>It's my first time traveling alone so maybe it is better for me to stay in a quieter area since I'm not a party-goer and it might be a little slower-paced.
Assuming they're accurately placed, green dot will get you kind of sleepy, middle class, residential neighborhood. If that's what you're going for, then it's a decent choice. Blue dot (assuming it's correctly placed) is a pretty cool part of town with stuff to do without being a party district like Jewish quarter. It would still be my choice, but I'm not the one taking the vacation.

Overall, Budapest is a safe and fun place, and I think it's a great destination for your first time traveling alone. Enjoy your trip!

Honestly, what is the most underrated country for travelling.

wat

Laos is the most underrated country in SE Asia. 4,000 islands and Bolaven Plateau in the south and Muong Ngoi in the north, Luang Prabang is kind of touristy but justifiably so, it's absolutely beautiful and a good jumping off place for shorter trips. I really liked Vientiane too, cool vibes. Vang Vieng is the backpacker party hellhole but if you're into that scene it's easy to lose a week in debauchery there. just don't eat the mushrooms

otherwise I think equatorial africa is underrated because people hear africa and think dangerous or whatever. really loved Uganda and would love to go back. Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda etc are all beautiful.

Also we are trans if it matters

it is entirely dependent on the individual venue - large cities will have multiple subcultures for nightlife
you can wear fancy stuff to be on the safe side
you are more likely to be turned away by places that have a dress code than turned away by places for being too dressed up

I think it exaggerates a little, but mostly true. 90% of japan is shitty towns with one main road with a pachinko, combini or two, chain restaurants and car shops, with old people making up most the population .

Its literally like flyover states in every way. Yet i noticed people posting lots of videos and images on instagram these days of random suburbs in Hachoji or any random boring place with millions of views.

I'm an autistic person from Finland and one thing that bothers me about travelling is that any place I go to looks bad in comparison to my homeland. In Finland streets are clean and everything is hi-tech and works with your smartphone. Then I go to a supposedly civilized place like Paris and there's litter on the streets, stores close way too early, nothing's open on mondays, people only take cash, everyone's too loud...

When I travel, I want to go to a place with higher standards of living than what I'm used to, not lower.
Where should I go? My dream country would be cold throughout the year, highly civilized, very clean, and where people are quiet on the train. As an autistic Finn, I hate it how loud other cultures are. I've been thinking of Japan, Iceland or the Faroe Islands.

I was just in Ireland and it was okay. Not sure if I'd leave Finland over Ireland but it was still an enjoyable experience. Dublin was a bit grittier than I had thought but smaller cities seemed very comfy. I still remember a certain church at the heart of Dublin where I'd always spot druggies puking and littering in broad daylight.

>If I were to reside in Switzerland it'll be in Luagno for easy access to Milan, rest is uptight boring boarding school vibes with zero social life and autisitc people.

Locarno is a MUCH nicer town than Lugano IMO, but you are correct that Ticino is the least autistic canton in Switzerland. That said, the cost of living down there, despite being maybe 10-15% cheaper than it is in Northwestern Switzerland where I live, is maybe 300% the cost of living on the Italian side of the border.
>>
>>2244329
No italian politics is worth the cost, and Milan is like an hour away from either Locarno or Lugano, very reasonable weekends commute for fun. I've known actual swiss people with no friends in other cantons. Autism is minimum to be said about the culture there.

I'll be in Rome for 7 days next week, any tips beyond what I'm listing below?

>hanging out in night time trastevere + climbing the hill for that comfy city view, also want to be chilling at isola tiberina
>vatican city + museum (we have tickets), castel sant'angelo (no tickets pre bought)
>piazza del popolo, villa medici, villa borghese park + galleria borghese (we have tickets)
>Palatine Hill, foro romano and surrounding area (circo massimo, altare della patria etc.) + colosseo (we have tickets)
>Of course random places like trevi, pantheon, piazza navona, mausoleo di augusto + museum next to it.
>We're thinking of a day trip to Pompeii. Been there before long ago, but my gf hasn't experienced it yet. Mite b cool.

The above aren't necessarily all combined on 1 day per listing by the way. I'm just clustering stuff together that's nearby.

We're staying near Villa Aldobrandini, so should probably be okay with walking everywhere. Been to Rome a couple times before and I just love walking around the city.

I’ll try to be brief, but am willing to elaborate on any of this if it helps the discussion. Some elements of this are anonymized or deliberately changed for anonymity.

I always thought my end goal was to end up [cool hipster west coast city USA] but personal reasons or work have always barely stopped me. I am now at the point where I am making the money to go and have no relationships holding me back. But in the last 2-3 years, my hopes of actual long term happiness by way of owning a house have disappeared. I was absolutely positioned for a dream home in some cool west coast city until COVID. I could still have a lesser house or rent forever but that is not a reality I worked for.

Instead my most recent plan is as follows. Move to the eastern USA in a city I don’t like at all, but has low cost of living, low taxes, and a good airport. Basically live in an apartment that is a glorified storage unit, and plan on being gone 80% of the time. I need to be back in the USA for approximately one week per month and I’m hopelessly attached to too many of my belongings to live out of a suitcase. I plan on working the USA-based job on USA time (so, South America/Europe/Africa mostly) and pretending nothing is different. I do not think this is the best way to be happy permanently, but I have no other ideas. Part of the reason I want to hang on to my belongings/identity is because I would like to have a house, a wife, a dog someday in the USA, but what I will not do is pay a flipper double what he paid in 2018 to do so. I consider myself well traveled and am not concerned about safety/language/etc as much as I am solid internet access and legal issues like visas. I have been running it around in my head to no end and simply cannot decide if this life is attainable, wise, or to any degree better than renting in [cool west coast city] waiting for some unlikely drop in real estate.
>>
>Why not just live abroad full time
I have a great job that pays great but it requires me to be in the US frequently
>Why not just get a hotel when you do come back then, and get rid of all your stuff
I think that 3 hotel nights or whatever a month, plus the hassle, is not as good as just spending $1000ish to have a live-in storage unit type of setup that also serves as a legal residence and mailing address. Maybe I even decide to spend two weeks or an entire month in it at times… a lot of flexibility
>Why not rent in a place you actually like for this monthly return trip
I don’t think the cost makes sense, but equally important, being on Pacific Time for work would mean for incredibly late nights even in Europe, and really limit social life/sanity the further east I go. Is this a valid concern?
>What about the cost of flying home every month
I don’t like it either. This is part of what I need your help on. Right now $1000 airfare + $1000 rent a month + $1000 foreign rent a month sounds like a more satisfying lifestyle than $3000 a month to live in LA, for example.
>You are never going to settle down and find a wife if you do this, and you are never going to be free if you still come back to the US where all your junk is
I know. I’m not sure what to do.
>>
As an example, go to somewhere cheap in South America with lots of luggage. Find an Airbnb and settle in. Try and enjoy myself. When work thing comes up, don't even pack up and check out, just fly back. Travel within US to accomplish work. Then fly back to Airbnb. If this country gets old, find a new one to go to. Maybe it doesn't and I end up renting in the same country for a year, who knows.

EU traveller here. No they are not strict, at all. It’s usually the airline that checks. Nobody gives a shit about the meme flu in Europe except one or two retarded countries. All of the few requirements are just some administrative bullshit that even the copa don’t want to bother anymore. So it’s usually the airline that checks.

Like the other anon said, fly to another restriction-free country. Basically all Scandinavian countries (including Norway and Iceland), Ireland, Hungary, and possibly another one or two I missed.

Now that you mention it, you said it’s a connecting flight to the UK. Why not just take a direct flight to the UK? The UK has zero restriction regardless of the country.
And also usually, there’s no restriction if you’re in a transit, iirc.
