How many clothes (minimum) do you bring with you when traveling?
18 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Not including the clothes I'm already wearing, I have:
>7 shirts
>7 pairs of socks
>7 pairs of underpants
>1 pair of pants/trousers
>1 jacket
I do laundry every 7 days.
This is what I've learned from experience. Traveling ultralight only makes sense if you are planning to move around on foot a lot, and it always involves wearing the same clothes for days or weeks between washes. A weeks worth is not a whole lot, you can fit it in a backpack if you plan well.
>12 pairs of socks
>10 pairs of underwear
>10 t-shirts
>2-3 dress, polo or flannel shirts
>3 hoodies
>3 jeans
>1 pair of shoes
>1 jacket
>1 hat
1 pair of jeans
1 pair of shorts
5 shirts
5 boxers
5 sock pairs
You need a minimum of one shirt a day in humid climates, if not 2 if you go out in the evening

Whats your best travel rewards tips? Just took a travelling job for a year. How do I minmax my position? I'm thinking
>Get an AMEX Platinum card
>Get in a frequent flyer program
>hotel rewards
>TSA pre-check
Anything I'm missing? Will a year of traveling between like 6 cities net any rewards worthwhile?
45 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>programs are basically a scam
I'm guessing if it's company travel he doesn't have a lot of choice in the matter, I'm thinking they'll book his travel but he gets to accumulate the rewards and it's gonna be one of the US big 3 or maybe Southwest, so why not try to take advantage as much as you can.
Almost everything in the US accepts AMEX these days.
It has lounge access. That's huge if you're traveling for work. You get to avoid the whole finding a place to eat at the airport or before your flight. Heck some of them have a shower. If you're doing it every 2 weeks the $25 you don't spend on food absolutely pays for the $600 membership. If you're getting per diem even better you can just bank that money and eat at the lounge.
Idk. SAN doesn't have a centurion lounge but I think you can use it to get into one of the other airlines lounges though flights are pretty limited at SAN. I personally have an Amex but not the high tier and a credit card from my bank that has like 3-4% off on groceries, gas and restaurants. I use it for those things. Amex is great for booking hotels. I feel like you get better service. I live in SD too but don't travel often for work but I think a lot of the posters here are looking at this like it's personal travel, it's not exactly the same.
Class upgrades imo aren't worth it in the US. Max flight time is 5 hours and that's only like NY to LA. You don't need to be in first class for a 2 hour flight I can put up with the zoo for 2 hours. What you want is lounge access. Just get an upgraded economy that includes wifi and a reward program that gives you checked luggage.
It's pretty easy to spend $10k if you put food and gas purchases on it.
I get about $900 of value out of my card per year and the true fees are $200/yr. Only works if you pay it off in full every month though. Don’t accumulate interest or it defeats the purpose.
I have the sapphire reserve and it’s gotten worse over the last few years. Minimal flight options through their portal and they charge about 30% more than booking directly. Decent for hotels and rental cars. I’ve been using the pay yourself back bonus more than travel booking lately, gotten $500 in bennies using that
>he doesn't transfer the points out to partner airlines
You're missing out. The point behind the chase trifecta is easy point accumulation rather than actual benefit at a low annual cost. You should almost always be transferring your points to an airline account to then buy the flight with points on the airline's site. You usually get like 3 cents per point, sometimes up to 6 or 7 cpp instead of the 1.25 or 1.5 the sapphire cards get you.
>lounge access
If you travel that much for work then sure, it may be worth it. If you don't though, then its likely never worth it and most people here don't travel for work. Even OP says this travel job would only be for a year.
The thing about team chase is: $95 annual for all 3 cards. Team amex however? Plat is $695, Gold is $250, Green is $150. Blue and Blue Pref are $0 and $95 respectively. So the cheapest trifecta for amex is Blue Green Gold at $350 annual, at worst it hits over a thousand dollars a year. It's really hard to justify that fee when the chase offer is so much cheaper for similar point accumulation rates.
If you use a free credit card or a cashback card, then you actually save money in the long run if you use cards responsibly.
I use the Venture X and if I can't get the flight/hotel through the portal for the 3%-8% gains, I just put it on my card like normal through the airline website and then just use the rewards to pay back myself. Hotels tend to be much more expensive on their portal, while I can generally find the flights with a little finagling -- BUT it fails to book the ticket about 50% of the time.

>. Choose propane, not butane!
What does the Winter Olympics have to do with anything
Butane boils at 30 F, so you won't be able to cook with it if temps dip below freeezing. Propane boils at -44 F, so it works fine in all but the most extreme arctic conditions.

Eh international schools don’t really pay that much when you consider a lot don’t pay during breaks. Also dealing with kids…doesn’t sound fun. If you have an MA and Delta you can make a better career at international uni.
I love you guys so much when you give such thorough answers. Thank you based anon. I'll see what I can find.

Yeah it’s definitely worth getting an MA if that’s what you’re interested in. I’m not sure what that guy is talking about with teaching at international schools.

I'm considering going on one these cruise liner trips

Any advice?
Which is the best company?

What's the best time of the year to go etc ?

Possibly meet some milf
If you can afford it, go with a cabin that has a balcony view of the ocean. Sunrises while at sea are fucking amazing. Would also tell you to pick a cabin in the middle of the ship, but not directly below the main pool deck area level.

I've only been on Royal Caribbean and MSC cruises and have had great experiences on both. I think RC recently launched another gigaship, if the idea of a floating city appeals to you.

tbqh any time is the best time to go. There are cruises everywhere for every season. I think my next cruise is going to be towards Alaska just to see that frozen wasteland.
I am interdast. Do transatlantic crusies really cost under $2000? Seems fishy to me.
Cunard do them for £1000 one way, £1700 for a 14 night return.

That's a bit like saying "recommend me a book! best author? Paperback or E-book? What genre should I read?"

They vary from ultra formal and luxury, party atmosphere, booze cruises, family, ultra budget etc. Then you've City cruises, beach cruises, glacier cruises, repositioning cruises, cruises to nowhere. Ultra expensive but all inclusive, cheap but nickel and dimes you.
Norwegian Cruise Line is pretty good for solo cruising. The solo cabins have a lounge and it allows you to meet other solo travelers. Sometimes a regular room will be a better deal than the solo rooms. The travel aspect of cruising is quite minimal. All the travel is setup for boomers scared to travel alone, but it can be fun. Lots of milfy swingers and young whores on cruise ships.
>All the travel is setup for boomers scared to travel alone
Boomers are married and usually have families, that's why they don't travel alone

If you had a s.o. you'd understand that

Heading to Peru at the end of October and first few days of September. Only have 7 days to play with, including flight time (so 5 days of being on the ground).

I'd like to spend 3 days in Lima, half a day in Macchu Picchi, full day in Huacacchina and Paracas, and whatever is left I'd simply like to explore the coast.

I'm going during day of the dead and have no idea if anything will be closed down. I'd really like to meet people while I'm here and make lasting memories and friendships.

Is this realistic given the distance between Lima, Machu Picchu, and Huacacchina? Should I save Machu Picchu for another time?

Are there tours or places you'd recommend? What should I know before going? What kind of nightlife can I find that doesn't revolve around getting drunk and going to clubs?

>You can buy ayahuasca at one of the booths in the market as well.
I didn't know, but I expected that to be the case when you mentioned changa. The market was also one of the first places to look for those plants. In Perú a lot of them are legal. The problem is when you extract the active substance for direct consumption. It's because there are traditional uses for them.
There are also a bunch of places that do it in pisac, but they're all hippy westerners or ripoff prices
I doubt they're actually Ayahuasca rituals. The actual rituals are done in the jungle, in places like Pucallpa, and they're pretty hard to find unless you get referred. So yeah Hippies getting ripped off.
That's not to say there aren't shamans in Cusco. There's Huasao. But it's not something your average trip seeking westerner would do
Peru sucks. Whole country is boomer, moldy, dirty, ugl. No frontier, nothing going on.
This guy already bought the ticket. We're just trying to get the best of it.

What are your thoughts on Albania

kosovo shiptars love bill clinton and all americans because they bombed serbian cities so that unironic terrorists (KLA) could seize power in Kosovo

also in response to other posts, albanian girls are indeed pretty hot
>How are they trapped?
Some countries don't consider Kosovo a real country so they can't get a visa, but I didn't realize it was just Spain and a few others
How’s real estate there. I read it is open to foreigners. How expensive is it? I like the prospect. As someone who is from a country that’s issued a 5 year residence permit no questions asked Albania looks nice.
I worked in a national park in 2016, with J-1s from Serbia and Albania. It took them two months to even start speaking to each other, but they ended up putting that Old World bullshit behind and becoming friends around the pool table.
>public transit sucks in Albania
This is a common theme for most Albanian travelers.
What a sad contribution. You've only shitted on someone who shared their genuine Albanian travel experience, with not one useful insight to share in rebuttal or response.

How long do you travel for? Do you have a primary residence anywhere?
NYC women are all spoiled rotten cunts and the minute anyone moves here they turn into a giga bitch. Also they have plenty of options for rich chads so you will be competing with literally the best men in the world, plus there is a large pool of Blacks, fat dysgenics, old people, etc that skew the ratio up. In Europe there is a more higher concentration of attractive women who are skinny and well put together which makes the situation not as bad

Domestic migrants too. All throughout the beautiful spaces of the American West, there are surplus of transient males, who move from place to place every few months on a whim. While it may be easy to catch a pretty girl's eye while she is vacationing with her parents in some mountain town and feeling rather mischievous, dating and establishing a relationship with a local girl is quite the challenge for a transient guy. Such a challenge that I have not met any guy who has succeeded in such a quest. "You gotta import em", my (transient male) buddy says when we discuss dating here in the Colorado Rockies.

Ok I really want to go to Egypt for the usual stuff, the historical sites. I'd be planning on going for around a week. Not sure exactly where but based in Cairo most likely.

I've never been outside of Europe before and I'd be a little nervous about all the scammers and what not there, I've heard and seen a lot of dodgy stories that seem to be unique to Egypt and much worse than similar countries like Morocco/Tunisia.

So what's it like? Safe? Cheap? Public transport and taxis ok? Speaka the Eeenglish?

photos of what? it's common sense not to go snooping around snapping pics of sensitive government facilities as a tourist. Even snapping pics of crowded markets can be sketchy, as many people do not want to be on camera.
>it's like any other Third World nation, such as Mexico
Supposedly, Egypt is far cheaper than Mexico. Both have kickass winter climates, though Mexico has far more natural beauty and topographic variation. Mexico has far, far more country worth exploring, with 6.4 kilometers of road per person, versus Egypt's 0.59 kilometers. However, the insecurity in Mexico means that few gringos venture off the beaten path.

You can't do "real name verification" without a chinese bank card which means you cant do things like order didi or takeaway.
But paying in shops by scanning QR code (or them scanning you) worked fine, I only had to use cash on two occasions in the three weeks I was there.

This >>2554487, but also if you really hate cash, you can get a CUP card for free in most countries. Most capitals tend to have at least a Bank of China or ICBC branch that normally caters to Chinese businesses and students abroad. I had my new bank card in my hand in 5 minutes after explaning at a BOC that I was going to China on a trip. All apps, everything worked with that card. I only used an old phone to do the online banking, cause their online banking did smell like spyware, even if it wasn't actually spyware.
Yes yes, this entire board is a conspiracy against poor innocent China.
