Previous thread: >>2318564

>What is this thread?
/rcg/ was created as a way for the roller coaster enthusiasts on here to discuss all things roller coasters and theme parks. While roller coasters are the main focus of these threads, there is also discussion on other theme park rides, as well as the parks themselves and trip planning too.
>Can I talk about Disney/Universal in this thread?
Absolutely! Disney discussion of all sorts including resorts/dining/trip planning is OK.

Thread Pro-tip: If you're waiting in line for a ride with your gf (or bf) be sure to be as intimate as possible with them in front of everyone else in line.

wtf is wrong with people? Especially at Halloween events?

In the UK you get "travellers day" in the run up to Halloween where the parks become a no-go area with constant fights, staff get abused and all the gift shops are stripped from the shoplifting.
Agreed. Real pain in the ass to navigate, but it makes the line for Candymonium tolerable mid-day since no one wants to go back to the front of the park.
Unfortunately, every day is "African-American Day," in America. So you can't even plan around it.
>wtf is wrong with people? Especially at Halloween events?

> Prime Minister Kishida makes announcement in New York
> Domestic travel discounts will be introduced at the same time

> Japan will abolish a slew of Covid border controls from Oct. 11, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said in New York, in a move that looks set to revive the tourism industry.
>Individual visitors will be allowed to enter, and Japan will reinstate visa waivers, Kishida said at a news conference Thursday in New York. The cap on daily arrivals in Japan will also be ended, he said.
>Japan’s move to scrap most restrictions on foreign tourists comes as the country’s deadliest wave of the pandemic recedes. It also coincides with the yen slumping to its lowest levels against the dollar in almost a quarter of a century, making the archipelago an inexpensive, attractive destination for visitors from overseas.
>Discounts for domestic travel will be introduced at the same time, Kishida added. After seeing a tourism boom before the pandemic, airlines, hotels and retailers are all seeking to regain the business they lost.
> Kishida’s cautious attitude to opening up after the first waves of the pandemic won him plaudits from voters still nervous about infections, while business leaders have complained about damage to the economy and urged him to fling the doors open.
>Before Covid, Japan let visitors from 68 countries and regions, including the US, stay for as long as 90 days without a visa. Visitor numbers reached a record of almost 32 million in 2019, slumping to about 246,000 last year.

No, they are not that smart. They are extremely compliant and never question things. They are good at solving and learning some shit but that’s it.
You don't need an ERFS unless your country didn't have a visa exemption before COVID. In other words, it goes back to being like it was before COVID. No information yet on vaccine/PCR requirements but you should assume you will need one or the other. They will verify it.
Adderall and prescription stimulants are illegal in Japan, I know that. Does anyone have experience trying to bring it with as a tourist?
I've heard that countless times in person from other people, you're not as smart or witty as you think.

I've been to Troy a couple times and really liked it. I actually had stayed at an Airbnb there a couple of years ago on a road trip and left with a pretty bad impression of it. Must have been in a shittier area because I returned to downtown for the Troy Riverfest and was really impressed

I feel like Albany has a lot of potential, but it needs a lot of work especially in regard to housing and pedestrian amenities. I still get really mad when I find myself having to doge cars getting in and out of Washington Park when I walk over there

Also I am not sure if this is a recent thing, but the lack of lane markings on the roads is really something. No center lines on major roads and you're left guessing if there are supposed to be 2 or 3 lanes.

I am originally from Illinois, so I am enjoying the nature around the area a lot as well. Do you have any recommendations for things to do, what school did you go to?
>I heard it's not as good as it used to be
ive talked with people who have gone to Tampa and Bristol (kenosha) and they have said its becoming shit. early 2000s when they started it was mostly treated as an unofficial DnD convention. Then it transitioned into a place for random adults to get drunk and play pirate on the weekend when their football team wasnt in town that weekend. Now its becoming a cosplay event for trans and furies.
last 6 years i've been going to the Ohio ren fair and there has been a sharp change in the type of crowd. The crowd is increasingly developing a "twitter" vibe and the amount of men larping as women is certainly noticeable in t he last few years. most of the shops are jewelry or crystal shops, the leather shops are shit you can find on etsy/alibaba/amazon/etc (i've found a few B00 and X00 ASIN stickers left on some of the items the owners forgot to remove) one glass blower actually making shit, and various dress shops where you can order from india then mark up 400%. The lines for food tend to stretch deep into the park due to the inefficiencies of the staff.
i'd avoid them.

I will never visit another country for the sole reason that I don't know how to
I had never traveled before this year, had never even been in an airport, and it's all surprisingly easy. I thought there would be more bureaucratic humiliation rituals, paperwork, little details that could derail the whole process, etc, but if you have a first-world passport, it's basically as simple as
1. buy the ticket
2. get on the plane
3. wait in an immigration/customs line for 15 minutes
4. exit airport, do whatever you want

You can even just take a taxi to the city center (having planned absolutely nothing in advance) and walk around until you find a hotel you think looks alright and book a room at that very moment. Traveling can be exactly as simple as you chose to make it.

I am going on an adventure in thailand and want to plan ahead in things to do and sights to see. I assume lots of you go for cooming, which I will do as well, but I also get bored easily of that and want to do exciting things like learn how to scuba, ride an elephant, have a lan party in an internet cafe, etc. I'll have 5-6 months here or until my money runs out.

Budget: ~$2200/month-- a ton in savings too so am flexible but I get sad if I see my cash account go down. Would rather just use my income. Is this enough? I would prefer a building with a gym and close to parks
Base: Bangkok-- I will rent a place here to have a base and keep all my shit there. I was also looking at changmai too maybe?
Interests: Cooming, parks, food, museums, adventures

Cooming is important but since my budget is small I dont think I can afford one whore/day. I've coomed all over the world and places like Brazil or Colombia or Philippines, but surprisingly never been to the famous sex capital. I never really paid much in those countries since I'm late 20s, hygienic, half decently attractive. I learned some spanish and portugese too so it was really easy in SA. Most I was paying was $5 taxi money and some of these girls would even be buying me dinner and want to sleep over. I heard it's a little more business transaction like in thailand, is this true? Do most girls speak english there or should I learn some Thai? Tinder, thaifriendly, seeking all legitimate options? I really would prefer a pure girlfriend experience rather than transactional relationship, otherwise I will get extremely bored

As for nice parks, leisure walking, good food, hipster areas-- is there any place in specific I should be staying in Bangkok? Looking at airbnb, I think I could squeeze around 1000/month for a nice apartment. Leaving me with ~1100 for everything else. Would prefer to order out food or go to restaurant 2x/day, cab fare for exploring city, extracurriculars like golf trainer or physical therapist, etc

Anons, I'm going to be in Thailand for 5 days. I need to know just how risky I am being if I go bareback. I read an old article stating that the prevalence of herpes has been on the rise, and it has me paranoid that I won't go bareback..
Just how prevalent is HIV and AIDs? is it worth it?
you are literally paying to fuck a used up hooker who fucks multiple men per day, she will fuck a nigger, a pajeet, a thai, a bald fat ugly boomer, anyone who pays, including drug addicts who shoot up with dirty needles and are into that sort of lifestyle because no regular woman would want them
what do you think faggot?
well, I surely don't expect it to be as bad as say TJ. All of these threads usually include a couple of people who boast about going bareback, and if they do that, to some extent, it can't be too risky.
I understand that what I am dealing with is a hooker, but I am still curious as to how prevalent herpes is.

So after being locked in for 2 years, I'm finally able to travel again without any quarantine restrictions.

So far, I have Thailand, Taiwan, or Japan on my list of places to solo-travel for 10 days. If you got 10 days to be alone in a different Asian country, which one would you choose?

Cooming is a consideration but not ultamitely important, I just want to gtfo out if my city and just vibe in a new environment.

this. Vietnam is inexpensive and has tons to do. Such good vibes there. You can come back and join the rest of us in saying "I miss my motorcycle..."
those types of feelings and experiences aren't gated by $$ but rather moments of chance and risk. it's really going to depend on your personality and interests. I did a 6 day island hopping trip in the phillipines near el nido and palawan solo trip and was worried id be lonely. met a bunch of people in my hostel and we ended up tripping acid, smoking weed, escaping the cops, going on tours together, kayaking across to different islands. exploring in general. they also have a cool, but small bar/club scene there so after adventuring we'd all go out, get drunk, and do it all over the next day. maybe it's not as deep what you want but it's really going to be based on your personality
>Vietnam is inexpensive

I fell for the solo traveling meme, i rented a cabin in a campsite (they only rented them week by week, so i had to pay for a full week), and i looked at the hiking trails around.

First, i hate sleeping alone in this place, i'm always afraid someone will try to kill me or destroy or steal my car (i had a nightmare about it last night).
Being alone means you are an easy prey, people notice it immediately.

Secondly, hiking alone is okay-ish, and you meet other people hiking alone, tho, there's always the obnoxious couple giving you the looks. Also, if you fall, you're pretty much fucked.

I'm at night 2 out of 7 nights, i wish i was at home doing my shit. I wish i was at work :-(
I think i will do 4 nights in order to keep face and i will pretend this was a good trip.

Sounds like you suck at socializing. Whenever I travel I make friends because I strike conversations with people and try to look as inviting and friendly as possible. Give it a try
First two posts basically nailed it. OP if you get lonely easily you need to orient your situation towards meeting people. For me, that typically involves a hostel or some sort of shared circumstance (camping sometimes).

Going inawoods is great but you need to accept that there are going to be fewer people way out in the middle of nowhere.

Why are we getting turbojewed by airfare right now? I'm trying to get to Europe to visit family, and there are not that many flights. Of those that are available, they're like... $500-1000 more expensive than the past 4 years. This is not inflation, this is something else.

Which websites do you usually use to check out prices?
I've got Skyscanner, Kayak, Google Flights and Hopper. Anything else I should look out for?

In terms of low cost airline carriers, they’re unironically probably the best to ever do it.

>Extremely frequent flights to pretty much every corner of Europe
>Insanely low costs, often pay more for my transfer to the airport than my flight itself
>Excellent safety and track record

The other thing is, I used to work for a major airport. With delays when it came to most of the other airlines, we’d be talking about LONG waiting times, sometimes even overnight.

Ryanair on the other hand would get their shit going pronto. Either they’d have an engineer straight on it, or a replacement plane within a pretty short amount of time.
Only downside is that in airports the Ryanair gates are usually a 20 minute walk from the rest of the flights. Then there is no airbridge. You will walk out onto the tarmac to board the plane from both ends (back and front). Minor quibbles.

>How did you get into that? How many hours do you work per week?
i was a permie (permanent staff), then i left and became a freelancer / contractor. while i was a permie i built up a pretty good contact network so i get most of my work through them, most of the rest through people finding me on linkedin.
i usually get paid by the day. generally to keep up a good income i work at least 10 days per month. during covid there were some pretty lean times but now i'm working more so it all averages out in the end. days are usually 6-8 hours, but take out lunch and a couple of breaks and it's usually only 4.5-6.5 hours of actual work.
>If all else fails, I can get them from Libgen.
i also mean your own presentations, handouts and so on. usually you would be expected to prepare your own powerpoints or whatever other material you want to use. up to you if you want to share it with students. if you are teaching something that doesn't change very frequently, you might get away with using a 20 year old textbook but IT stuff changes very quickly. personally i don't use slides but i do have notes i give to students so i mainly keep them on box, dropbox etc.
>i was a permie
Sounds like you were living my dream. One dream of mine is to become a permie and get tenured, then arrange lectures etc. on site. Maybe, while doing my own research on the weekend, without anyone knowing and without any deadlines. Unfortunately, my country's universities don't really offer tenure anymore, so teaching from around the world became my Plan B.
>most of the rest through people finding me on linkedin.
That actually works? Surprised but happy to hear that. My impression as an outsider was always a bit different. Do you think it's a good idea to make an account there in my position? I've got no "official" experience with teaching, after all. And the coof unfortunately took all the opportunities for networking away from me (that is, all the in-person conferences).
>generally to keep up a good income i work at least 10 days per month.
That's much less than what I expected. Cool!
>i also mean your own presentations
I see. As for that, I'm fine with just storing my stuff on my VPS. I have a fair amount of experience with LaTeX these days and always had to do Office stuff on the side. Uploading videos would of course always be a hassle in the middle of nowhere, but I figure you could just let the uploads run over night.
>if you are teaching something that doesn't change very frequently
Depends on the level. Bachelor's stuff every fofty years, Master's every five to ten, PhD stuff every 1-2 years. Of course, that means keeping up with a lot of literature, but I found that I kinda like that. Hits the same stuff like digging through new music or going down some YouTube rabbit hole. Just more long-term.

So my employer recently announced that we can work fully remotely in any country we have legal entities in. It's a multinational company so there's a bunch to choose from, but I think the only ones that interest me would be South Korea, Japan, or China. I'm considering travelling to one of these and working for a few weeks and then taking a few weeks vacation and coming back.

What do you think would be more interesting/fun? South Korea, Japan, or China? Which cities?

Currently living there and have been for two years. Comfy, but earthquakes and horrible summer. It's also much less exciting if you're not a turboweeb. Large cities get depressing after a while, but that's probably because I grew up by the countryside. I live in a small city (for their standards) in Aichi prefecture and it's fairly nice because it means I have to learn the language and mingle with the locals.
6/10, overrated but still kinda nice.

I only have been to SK once for two weeks and that was like five years ago. Seoul was nice but like all megacities became depressing for me really quickly. Especially because it occasionally gave out air pollution warnings over the phone emergency broadcast. Gangneung was my favorite because of the beaches (pic related). If I remember correctly, they have surfing championships there. Problem is I don't know anything about living there. And consider tgeir psychotic neighbor, I suppose.
?/10, would consider it from my impression back then. Definitely recommend visiting for a few weeks.

Have never been to there nor know anyone personally who went there, let alone lived. But pollution is probably high in the largest cities. Also, the censorship and the surveillance unless you're cool with it.
???/10, no idea but would at least wanna visit once.

In all of those, you should try to learn the basics of the language if you wanna get the best out of it. Tokyo was a bit easier, but knowing basic Japanese definitely helped in Osaka and Nagoya. In Seoul, I constantly had to have a friend translate.
Hope anything of this is helpful.

Most important question on this tread. How is the cooming in Dublin? Any 10/10 lays?

Dublin is like any other globohomo anglosphere city. There are some accidentally neat bits (the gaol they go on about is worth visiting, the uni had a couple of interesting collections of stuff) but lots of it is just like being at home. Temple Bar and Guinness factory are tourist traps but it's fun to play along with the normies sometimes

Attractive bits of Ireland for hiking are mostly on the west coast, a bit of a pain to get to and some people still actually speak Irish out there (not just performatively like folk in Dublin). If you get nice weather the views out over the Atlantic are outstanding.
