Have you stayed in any party hostels which are common in Europe and SEA?

How was your experience and would you do it again? Is it common to have people making out in dorms or is it a larp?

Z hostel, Manila PH

I lived in Makati/BGC for a few years and when I decided to go out, I made this my first stop.

I always enjoyed telling the locals it was my first night, it's posititoned right between Rockwell, a nice upper class neighborhood, and within Makati while the other side is alongside Bel-air/burgos which is known for cheap hookers, and other questionable stuff but no casinos like malate.

It's classy for PH and not a walking street like in pattaya or angeles.

Go there, say you're new in town, tranfer, and have your pick from regular good ole girls and rans/ladyboys in the area.

I always find it's better to say you're in town in capital/big places for work vs tourist, and then in nice exotic places like Palawan, Siquijor as tourist.

Though better if you bring along a girl or two you met at the bar.

>ironically enough, I've brough a few girls on random trips planned the next day or two via cebpack from this bar.

Every Amsterdam native I've spoken to is actually very satisfied with the current situation and lack of tourists. Most say they want Amsterdam to permanently stay like this and I agree.

We might be able to lobby the Amsterdam local government to exclude or limit the amount of tourists it allows every year.

Hell we could even make tourists bid an amount for the privilege of visiting Amsterdam and then use that as a tax revenue for the Amsterdam municipal government.

FUCK TOURISTS.

This is a question for non-Asians living in Japan but if you have had similar experiences please join in.

I've seen it said many times that foreigners have a hard time making friends and the Japs just want to use them for free English lessons.

1. Is this true?
2. Why?
I'm not asking 'oh why don't they want to be friends with a random foreigner' I'm asking why some 30 year old salary man would want to learn English outside of it being an educational requirement. Especially since they will never use it outside of telling random tourists where the train station is.

I have bilingual friends but I never try to get them to teach me the Spanish. I especially don't go up to random Mexicans and strike up a conversation in the hopes they will teach me Spanish, it's such a weird thought. I don't get it.

It's not, it's something I see people on the internet say with no actual proof they have "years of experience". I've met plenty of people who have been here for nearly a decade and yet I still only ever hear this shit here. Japanese people are definitely shyer on average and take longer to warm up to you, but they're not these alien bug people who operate completely differently on an emotional level.

The "argument" is literally my experience vs. your experience. I can dismiss you as being someone who hasn't lived here for an extended period just as you can me.

Has anyone here travelled to Brazil during Covid? I read online that the only thing required for Americans is a valid passport and proof of insurance, but I also read you need a letter from the embassy....not sure which is accurate.

Also, how is the general situation in Brazil? I know the "cases" are high, but how is the mood of the people? Are they still hysterically locking things down , or is life edging towards a sense of normalcy? Honestly, I just wanna be able to chill on the beach or go to a bar without being lectured by some Karen about "staying home saving lives"

Brazilian here

>General tips
-Learn some basic stuff in Portuguese since most Brazilians don't speak English
-Ask for a Brazilian friend what's usually the price of things in the area you're staying because people will try to trick you when they realize you're a tourist
-Use Uber or 99, not taxis, because taxi drivers always try to make you pay more, specially if you're a tourist.
-If you see some brown/black kids trying to rob you in public, just ignore them if they're a lot younger or skinnier than you. A lot of kids try to rob me because I look "rich", for being white and dressing well. Obviously though, comply when the robber has a gun or knife.

I'm not exactly a ladies man but I can give you tips on the general culture
>Tips to get girls
-There are more brown girls in Northeast and North
-There are more white girls in the South, as well as in Rio and São Paulo
-They will be interested in you for being a gringo so just act cool.
-Brazilian parties is very different from Canadian's. If you're attractive enough, there will be girls in parties who will come to you.

Best is subjective what are you looking for?
Interesting or exotic culture
beautiful landscapes or architecture
food, women, booze, drugs
adventure or luxury

Without knowing what you want its like asking what the objectively best car is or the objectively most delicious plate of food.

Europe is not some monolithic entity there are countries right next to each other with vastly different cultures at best you can divide it into southern, central/germanic, nordic, eastern and anglo with some bleed thorough in between.

I want to travel the US by car soon. Anybody ever done this? Really want to make it as low budget as possible, so the majority of it will be spent camping and visiting natural landmarks.

What kind of a budget should I plan for? Recommendations for forms of transportation? I’m thinking early 2000s Toyota wagon of some sort. I want to drive through all sorts of ghost towns and big cities along the way. Want to stop all along the way for photography. Advice for not having a shit time?

I've done Virginia -> Oregon most recently, plus a few others when I was younger.
> VA -> MI to visit family for a few days
> MI through Chicago then up to I-90 until Rapid City in SD (brief stop at Mount Rushmore while we're in the area)
> SD to Devil's Tower in Wyoming, then Yellowstone for a day
> Yellowstone to I-84 then continue west until Portland
Was about 5 days of driving, maybe 8 total.

> What kind of a budget should I plan for?
Depending on the car, you should plan on filling your tank at least twice a day (let's say $50 per day). If you're sleeping in your car then you'd save on hotels, which would be $80-100 per night. Food can be as cheap or as expensive as you like, you can stop by grocery stores as you pass through towns to pick up decent food (wouldn't recommend only gas station food/fast food).
> Recommendations for forms of transportation?
A Toyota wagon should be sufficient, even in the remote areas roads will be decently paved. Shouldn't need special tires/etc.
> Advice for not having a shit time?
At least for me, knowing about the places I'm visiting makes me appreciate them more. The majority of your time will be driving through rural bumfuckery, so it helps to know "Oh these are the Black Hills that's where this battle with Indians occurred" which allows you to build context in your head and connect the dots with other bits of history. In addition to music, audio books, companionship, etc.

I think if you want to hit every continental state, you should start with a smaller route to start (San Diego > Seattle, Miami to Maine, etc). This will give you some experience which you can use to plan a larger trip.

Not him but my Brother's wife is belarussian. According to her tensions are high even outside cities and most people secretly despise Lukashenko. But they all think the protests will be useless and are probably not going to amount to anything this time. That is the sentiment she and her family that live in a small belarussian town think.

Belarus borders Poland and they've seen what being a member of the EU has done to transform Poland from being a poor 1990s country like all communist collapse countries into being the richest neighbor of Belarus. People realize this and that Poles have actual freedom. They want to have the same quality of life.

Have any Americans here attended university in Europe? I'm considering it as an option if I do not recieve favorable financial aid awards as a transfer student. I have a GED, but I'd have 1 or 2 years of community college and the required funds for the visa.

i duno how they feel about GED - it should be ok.
a few euoropean countries accept a valid highschool diploma and you compete in an entrance exam probably like an intelligence test and general highschooler knowledge shit
this happens in italy - there are some english programs
i think i saw it for croatia.

there are some "free" universities in europe so is the name, dont know their enterance requirement or the usefullness of the degree

Visas are a bitch. And usually you have to do a year of "pre college" if ur not from EU. This is valid for DE and AT, can't speak about other countries. But if ur willing to deal with the bullshit it's an incredibly cheap way to get educated. But only do it for STEM or else ur wasting ur time. I sped approx $10k USD all in every year including tuition room food a bit of fuck around money and transportation

As an american, these types of discussions are absolutely fascinating to read. So many micro-languages are required just for your people operate their economies on the scale of less than a singe american state. I go entire months without hearing other languages. I moved 2400 miles recently and everyone spoke english the entire way here.

The ''it has more speakers'' is such a terrible measure for any language. Is quantity an indicator of how interesting culture exists in that language? No. Or how financially relevant that language is? No. Or how interesting the people are that speak that language? No. What do you gain from being able to speak with 200 million Africans? Nothing. Meanwhile, you could be reading Russian novels and speak with interesting Ruskies.

Spanish is the most overrated language of all, because literally nobody worth talking to speaks only Spanish.
