it's more common than what you'd think. Particularly in Siargao.

lol whatever you say juan

Siargao is a microcosm of rich white trash having an extended vacation on their parents money.

It's a backpacker bubble in an otherwise sane country

Hi, i happen to have my birthday around May and wanted to treat myself by visiting Amsterdam for the first time. Im on budget but not completly broke so im looking for cheap hostel. Im not very picky and i used to stay in hostels before, i only want cleand sheets and access to shower - rest of the time id rather spend by diacovering Amsterdam.
My question is: can you recommend me some cheap hostel around city center in Amsterdam? Doesnt have to be strict center, but i like to use my feets rather than taxis or public transit.
Any tips what should i see in Amsterdam? Im into art, so interesting museums might be nice.

1. You're retarded as fuck if you think italians are snobbish, try the french, koreans, chinese folks and see how they treat you.

2. You'd behave the same, or even worse if you had chinese people or jeets who can't speak english visiting your establishment.

3. Most places treat you just fine, dunno why it's always you antisocial fucks complaining in here when the only places you go to are tourists traps and act like total spergs with the local folks

I drove around italy to cities with little to no tourism and never had issues and im not even fluent in the language.
Yeah this. The only time it matters is when you meet someone with similar interests, or a person from the places you're familiar with. Braindead normies don't give a fuck about the world beyond their shitty suburban house and where they go to work.

>I'm not learning a language to appeal to a bunch of hostile snobbish fucks.
This. If you're planning on spending a significant amount of time in a country, that's one thing. But it's stupid to expect you to care if you're only gonna visit for like two weeks and never return.

Learning some words to get around takes 3 hours of your time at most.

The exact opposite is true outside of Europe. If you're white, people secretly look down on you for trying to blend in with the natives. If instead you carry yourself with the quiet confidence and haughty attitude of a British colonial governor during Victorian times, or the endearing ignorance and assumed superiority of a post-WW2 American, they'll hate your guts, but they'll respect you.

Starting to brainstorm about a trip in February and Nicaragua is right now on top of my list. I've done some parts of Mexico, PR, and Colombia.

How safe is it? I've noticed the US State Dept gave it a level 3 warning. Not my first time in Latin America but it was in level 1 or 2 areas.

How's the food? I'm guessing worse than Mexican(nothing wrong with that) but better than Colombian.

Not planning on going to Costa Rica because it sounds like it's crawling with American boomers and because it's too much expensive.

I really liked Cambodia too though to be honest. Outside the major tourist areas, I always found the people to be pretty nice, and I've always had a grim fascinating with countries with fucked up past. I'm British too, so maybe the people there won't be as pissed off with me.

Yeah, Antigua genuinely sounds pretty damn sweet despite how full of tourists it is
Oh shit we're dealing with a Real Traveler. Just stay home if you don't want to deal with tourists.
What's the cigar situation like in CA by the way? How much can you expect to pay for a decent cigar in different countries, particularly Nicaragua? Are the countries full of fakes like Mexico supposedly is?
Most cigars sold in the US are grown in Honduras and Nicaragua. A lot of Cuban cigar families/companies fled there from what I gather..
Yeah, I know Nicaragua in particular has a good reputation for producing some of the best cigars in the world. I bought a few black market cigars from Nicaragua that I'm pretty sure were legit (I don't know shit about cigars, but the older American guy I used to split boxes with said they were legit) when I was living in China, and I think I paid around 15-20 bucks per cigar, but that's a lot for me now that I've quit my job and am just travelling.

Im planning my first solo trip on June to Europe and I would like to visit Italy and france.

Thoughts about a 10-14 day trip combining these following places.

Milano 3-4 days
Turin 3-4 days
??? 2 days
Lyon 4 days

I would travel from city to city by only using the train. I would like to add a fourth destination to my list. I really like country side, so is there a good spot, a historic small town between Turin and Lyon to visit for few days? Something close to nature would be great. Is Chambery worth visiting in france? Any suggestions and tips are appreciated!

>There is literally nothing in Lyon France that can hold a fucking candle to Florence.
You wouldn't want to miss out on the diversity, would you?
>hurr durr you saw a black person
Milan is shit because besides the duomo and cathedral there is fucking nothing but shopping and fagshion. Lyon is shit because it doesnt compare to practically anything surrounding it. The riviera is better, annecy is better, chambery is better, toulouse is a nicer modern city imo and carcassone being closeby is a big sell. It's the same thing with Bordeaux, you're better off going to St. Emilion for both wine and atmosphere. Annecy wine is primarily why I recommend it, Cotes de Rhone Syrah and Grenache are tremendously good, much better than the fruit jammy garbage that is Australian Syrah.
Big city that pales in comparison to its surrounding small towns/small cities. There's a reason people recommended annecy instead, look up a few vids of the town and you'll see why.
+1. This guy knows what he's talking about
Thanks for the response. I was thinking about visiting lyon after a small french town.

Is Indianapolis a good city for a young man making an engineer's salary?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It's a good city for large events and having your engineer's salary stretch further. Besides that it's pretty meh and crime is way up from Chicago gangs establishing themselves there.
Go visit the Prairies in June, when for scores on scores of miles you wade knee-deep among Tiger- lilies - what is the one charm wanting? — Water — there is not a drop of water there!
If you make good money, why would you opt for Indianapolis over Chicago? In my mind, I’d be thinking either go to Chicago or head out to the country.
I lived there 2010-2015 when I was 20-25
it's a pretty unremarkable city but affordable. decent amount of young people I guess
you could do worse but also do better depending on what you are looking for

>you can even bring the backpack as a personal item for free besides the suitcase

The reality is this: Carry on + normal backpack > land in destination > uber/taxi to accomodation > drop off suitcase and leave with what you need in backpack. The whole K2/Homeless getup people go for with these oversized bags are frankly ridiculous, stop larping as an explorer and grow up.
>Osprey Farpoint 55.
- Congrats, you've found the basic bitch normie backpack of choice. Search "40L backpack" on Youtube and I guarantee you the majority of the hits will be vapid bimbos who are too lazy/dumb to research and are travelling to Asia or Europe with your normie backpack.
- 55L is way more than you actually need. But the backpack isn't actually 55L though but 40L; there's a 15L removable daypack. If you want a daypack you're much better served getting say a Peak Design Travel Backpack 30L which can function as your travel bag, and, slim down to a daypack when need be (27L expandable to 33L). Or you can get a Nanobag that'll fit in your pocket or a Sea to Summit Ultra-Sil Nano Daypack that'll fit in your backpack and weighs nothing.
- It's too big to be a carry-on on most international flights and the staff has seen your basic bitch bag a thousand times before and know its exact measurements by memory and know that they can charge you an extra fee or make you check it.
- You're paying a premium for a basic backpack with cheap materials, extra fees not included.
- Makes you look like a retarded victim.

>I tried that and getting shit to dry was a pain in the ass.
- You're going to have to handwash with your bag, first of all. It's a 40L, not a 55L.
- Are you 15? It's not difficult to dry your clothes. Just wring them out and roll them up in a towel and step on them. Sea to Summit also has an excellent clothesline that weighs nothing. It's not rocket science.

Oh noes I'm a normie bimbo. I picked a bag with a lot of good reviews. Could I have bought your obscure hipster bag instead and saved money if I spent more times googling? Maybe but I'm fine with my purchase.

>55L is way more than you actually need. But the backpack isn't actually 55L though but 40L; there's a 15L removable daypack.
I probably could have gone with a smaller bag but I wanted a bag that was just within most airline carryon regulations. . I don't have to stuff it to the gills, but if I'm picking shit up along the way its nice to have extra room. I know the Osprey Farpoint 55 is a 40 L bag with a zipoff 15L daypack.

>It's too big to be a carry-on on most international flights
No its not. The 40L bag meets One World and Star Alliance requirements for a carry on and the 15L works as my "under-the-seat item". I've taken it on multiple international flights with multiple airlines with no problems.

>You're paying a premium for a basic backpack with cheap materials, extra fees not included.
Fingers crossed, but it hasn't started to fall apart yet.

>Makes you look like a retarded victim.
No, being big goofy white guy makes me look a retarded victim. I don't walk down dark alleys with my bag anyways.

I will have two weeks of vacation in November and want to visit some countries in central/eastern Europe. Never been before so dont know much about the region. Where should I go that is affordable, interesting, and has good food?
I will have my GF with me so not interested in cooming, alcohol, or nightlife. We're travelling in November because of fewer crowds and cheaper prices. We know we want to visit Hungary for sure for the thermal baths and the food but are unsure if we should go north from there to Slovakia/Czechia/Poland, to Slovenia/Croatia/Serbia, or east towards Romania. I was leaning towards Croatia and Serbia because the weather may be warmer, the proximity to Hungary, I've heard food there is decent, and I like Orthodox churches. But we are open to anywhere accessible by train or bus from Budapest. Any good outdoor things to do in any of these regions in November?

if you're into orthodox churches then romania has some nice and imposing ones all over the country, but the nicest ones are supposedly in the northeastern part of cunt, namely bucovina.

also greece, if you don't mind stretching the itinerary, is going to have nice nature, beaches and orthodox churches.

poland has that nice tank driving museum in gdansk, but since you're carrying a bitch with you you'll likely skip it.

moldova has an active small scale civil war if you're into that.

croatia, albania and montenegro all have nice beaches, and I'm sure.

best for mountains, nature and hiking would be austria and slovenia, but bosnia, romania and bulgaria are also nice in the mountains.

I would avoid germany simply because anything that you can do there you can do cheaper in other cunts, otherwise germany is interesting too.

"Not interested in alcohol"

Are you fucking Mormon? I already hate your girlfriend.

The thermal baths in Hungary were boring. We went in, took a look, and left without buying a ticket. It was just a public pool filled with better decoration.

Since you sound like you don't have a penny to spend, stay out of Croatia. You won't be able to afford it. Go north and do Bratislava, Vienna, Brno and Prague. They all have amazing churches, cheap food and a ton of shit to walk around and explore. And don't let that cunt stop you from drinking beer. It's your fucking vacation.

Planning on going to brazil for 2 weeks or so. What are some must sees?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
FYI yes there is a high chance you will be robbed. Just give it to them, they have no problem killing you but they also have no problem just taking it quickly and leaving.
you can get smoking hot, model tier prostitutes for $150. or so i hear.
If you only have 2 weeks and have never been I'd suggest Rio (stay in Ipanema) and do a few excursions for a few days from there. I'd say one to Búzios and one to Ouro Preto in Minas.

I'm half Brazilian, grew up in the states but went back, wandered the country for a long time, lived in Rio for years, married a Brazilian and brought her back. Have property there now and split my time.

I'd be happy to answer any questions and can probably offer you a unique perspective since I don't visually pass as Brazilian and get some gringo treatment but am fluent and understand the culture and all that.

The violence is overhyped and you'll be fine outside of dangerous areas (safety wise) but petty crime is definitely rampant and you have to keep your head on a swivel.

Beware of Brazilians telling you to skip Rio, it's just like Americans living in the Midwest telling foreigners not to visit NY or LA. Obviously both have issues, but are part of the touristic experience. Same goes for Rio.
If you decide to use your two weeks to go somewhere other than Rio I'd go to Bahia. Start in Salvador and from there explore a bit. You can do morro de são Paulo, Jericoacoara, barreirinhas (lençóis maranhense) all pretty easily from there. Chapada Diamantina is cool too.

Forgot to mention this - make friends fast because they will be more than happy to show you around and if you don't speak Portuguese and are a loner you'll miss out on a lot. If you're not a sperg just swipe on tinder and find your guides with benefits and then do shit with their friend group

Or if you want jungle other than beach you can of course go to the North. I'd say Rio or Salvador would be my first suggestion to base your trip around though
>Arriving in São Paulo
3 days there
5 days in Rio (6h by bus from São Paulo depending on traffic, 50min by plane - which I do recommend)
2/3 days in Paraty
2 days in São Sebastião/Ilhabela
The rest in São Paulo
>Arriving from Rio de Janeiro
5 days there
2 days in Petrópolis
1/2 days in São João del Rei
1/2 days in Belo Horizonte (exclusively to go to Inhotim Museum at Brumadinho, maybe the biggest Brazilian hidden gem https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inhotim)
3 days in Ouro Preto
Back to Rio in a 7h bus trip

>does USA/Canada ask to see bank statements or anything?
Like that other guy said, if you qualify for ESTA they likely won't ask.

But if you are from a shithole country, they absolutely will. They're not stupid, they don't want you overstaying your visa so you can illegally immigrate (nominally, anyway).

If you don't have the means to live comfortably in your native country, they aren't going to trust that you'll leave of your own accord.
I'm on disability so I'm not allowed to do a course. Well I am but last time I took a course they tried to immediately cut my disability which is a classic example of why NEETs are not necessarily lazy, just trapped in the system. I have no money in my bank account because you're not really allowed to save anything either, another example of the welfare trap. This entire trip has to be cash which is why I was worried about them checking my bank account and seeing zero in it.
I am from Western Europe.
If you're from Western Europe I'd apply for an ESTA and see what happens.
No, they don't check. It'sj ust paperwork. Don't you thinkt hey have better things to do?
