I am new here. I recently joined an expat meme group where people just complain about the locals. A lot of complaining about how hard it is to find a date (apparently locals flaking/ghosting you is a huge thing here) and how hard it is to make local friends. Everything they talk about seems to be the polar opposite of the impression /trv/ gave me (yeah, maybe I'm an idiot for listening to you people). After a month here I fear they may be right. Any non-larpers wanna give me advice on how to make the best of my social life? Keep in mind that my Korean speaking level is garbage but I am currently learning.

Uhh guys. I bought a $900 flight to the middle east to meet a girl I had been talking to on interpals for a little while. When I told her about the flight, all of a sudden she ghosted me. All my backup girls suddenly disappeared too. I can't get a refund for my flight.

Wat do?

Okay mate, final bit of advice from the Turkish girl I dated whilst in my home country. She was studying medicine here and was a turbo-liberal, tattooed and everything, so obviously didn't appreciate the Erdogan talk and naturally I didn't do it. It's good you've studied some Turkish, but don't lay it on thick. Try to play it off as a joke like saying "Cocuk yer elma" and other nonsense phrases, which is cute. This is the approach for thots, which have the highest chance of sleeping with you. If you want a nice, genuine girl, you can be more yourself and see if you click.
>Misc thoughts on Istanbul:
Buy the metro/public transport card and stuff that thing with money (mind you, its very cheap) and you'll be zipping through tie city.
I visited the Galata Konak Cafe & Restaurant rooftop bar with some Arabs, but reading the recent reviews seems as the place has went into a downward spiral, i.e. the amazing view is still there but they charge an arm and a leg for a drink. ₺25/$3 for a coffee. This is a lot in Turkey. I usually use Foursquare to find a place and cross-reference google reviews.
Pre-plan museum visits and similar online. You'll skip a lot of lines and get cheap stuff even cheaper.

Whats it like to be a woman 29-35 (my age range) to be living and traveling around Japan?
There's honestly so much misinformation out there, and even in other threads on this board. Can you please just answer these questions I honestly ask:

>Why I be groped on the subway/rail system?
>Is r*pe as common as they say? (or more)?
>Is being 5'09'' 180lbs too big for Japanese men to date?
>How are one night stands seen culturally?
>Will I be acosted constantly by thirsty LBH's? (Something I really am trying to avoid)

I will be teaching English there for at least a year. Is that long enough to learn the language and switch jobs? I don't want to be seen as a loser ESL teacher.

>>1992487
I think you need a reality check.

At 30+, you're not going to look as good as you used to. The fact you're insecure about your age tells me you know this. Most white tourists to Japan 'travelling around' are typically a lot younger, 18-25. This will be your biggest barrier.

Rape there is not common. Neither is groping. It's not common anywhere in Southeast Asia. 5'9 and overwheight gives you no chance in the dating market, absolutely no chance. Asian men having very high standards- you are in for a very rude awakening if you think you're this desirable anywhere in the world, let alone SEA.

You sound like a female LBH to me.

A bit lower than that. Pre-Covid 3k was near the cost just for rent in a 1 bedroom in the Bay Area, and LA was similarly expensive. Median income gets averaged out a lot by rural areas where prices for everything are generally dirt cheap, but here are a lot of places (Larger cities & tourist towns mainly) where housing supply is not nearly sufficient to meet demand so the COL is ridiculously high, which is where most changes in COL come from if you live in the continental U.S.

Hey guys, I am a 26 year old uk anon living and working in Birmingham, UK. I have a decent job here but I hate the city and I'm frankly tired of the UK. I've always wanted to emigrate and live abroad. I’m wondering why I'm working here in a job which isn't working towards a future that I want to actually have.
I've decided to change that so I am going to start looking to emigrate from here in 2022. I have about 40k+ in savings which I managed to luckily get in stocks. I have a History (meme) degree but from a decent uni here so it’s not been too much of a hindrance. For the past 3 years I've been working in police intelligence which I enjoy a lot but I can't imagine it's likely I'd be able to use this experience anywhere else due to citizenship constraints. I still have the opportunity to get EU citizenship as my mum is Irish but that’s likely to be a few years wait due to the backlog with the Irish government.
Previously my plan was to do this job for a few years for extra experience and savings before I used my EU citizenship to do a masters in the Netherlands or France and moving permanently to Europe. However, with that possibly now being off the cards I am looking elsewhere. I am open to changing sectors if there’s anywhere where my degree could be useful. I’m also open to re-training. So far I’m looking at Canada or Australia as the working holiday visa means it isn’t hard to go there for a year or two but I’d rather not waste my time doing bar work if I can help it.
Can anyone give any advice? I’d rather not waste my time pursuing frivolous gap year shit abroad but I know that I want to emigrate and I want to start moving towards that.

Is Switzerland as good as I imagine it to be?

Im a 20 year old Aussie and I earn around 400k gross a year through multiple Youtube channels, so money is not really an issue in regards to moving somewhere

My country right now is on a knife's edge with this Covid bullshit and it can either go one way or another. We have literally devolved back to the old days of State Jurisdictions controlling everything, with the federal government too scared to do anything or overrule these seperate states. I am lucky that my state is relatively based, however I don't know how long this will hold.

With that said I've drawn up a conditional contingency plan that involves Switzerland as a potential outcome. I have seen that Switzerland has really solid gun laws, it's a nice first world country with a reasonable amount of tax, and it historically safe from warfare and shit hitting the fan everywhere else which I predict it very well may in the coming years.

I would like to know from people who are residents/citizens of Switzerland if it is really worth the hype in the political sense and what the process is like for becoming at least a resident over there.

I have been there before and I adored the natural beauty of it, however would like to know a bit more about the politics and governance of the country. E.g. how are you guys handling covid? Are there a lot of lefties? etc etc

Thanks

Been wanting to go to India for a while now, I've been into mysticism and meditative practices for as long as I can remember so I'm looking for somewhere that's not so much party mode and bustling city life.

I'm from Persian/Indo-Aryan descent so I figure I could fit in quite well, however I don't speak any Hindu. I mainly want to go there to live at some point, and just dream about going to some relaxed beach like environment and meditating with a bunch of cool guru dudes lol.


I was thinking maybe South Goa, Varanasi, or Puducherry? Any insight guys? I'm only just starting to research what I can so if there's anything I can take into account, please let me know.

My budget hopefully, if I'm only travelling at the time is maybe $10,000 AUD at most - and that was me thinking it's too much.

I don't drink really or like partying, even more so I don't really buy anything like clothes and stuff but just little knick knacks here and there.

Thanks.

Not planning on being a lazy shit. And she would tell me to go fuck myself if I ever suggest she stay home. I respect that.

If anything its me trying to keep up with her.
As much as you may claim I am naive I am very aware of the situation. We share similar visions for the future and work and actively discuss plans for work, education, children, and finances. We communicate our concerns and plans and we discuss them, we leave no stone unturned and do not hide anything from each other. We call eachother out when it needs to happen. And I am aware of the the false build up for LDR. I've done it a few times now where we had to we reused to being around each other. But once you get passed all of that. Its so so so worth it. We build eachother up, we are constantly trying to improve ourselves and each other. There's a reason I am absolutely crazy about her and she is crazy about me. No one else does it for me. Just wish I could be with her again.

So Travel between Australia and New Zealand is opening up the Monday after next (19th).
What are your plans?

Any Aussies gunna visit NZ?
Any Kiwis gunna go to Aus?
Visiting friends?
Going skiing in NZ?
Hitting a beach in Aus?
Or just need to get out?

Apparently Air New Zealand said almost all their flights are booked out already since Jacinda announced that they'll open.

Both Australia and New Zealand will be left as prison islands because of covid.
Their approach to trying to completely contain an airborne virus has been totally heavy handed and over the top.
Their lack of vaccination means while the rest of the world gets moving this year, you guys will be stuck travelling your own islands for years, segregated from the rest of the world unless you want a 2 week quarantine when you get back

Fucking hilarious. Enjoy

Well this is the beautiful thing, they can't. They have stuck to the "zero covid" strategy that they can't change now or people will rightly say what was the point of doing it for over a year and wrecking the economy?
If aus changes they get the travel corridors to NZ taken away or vice versa.

2 prison islands, miles away from anyone with no travel and no chance of leaving.
Brilliant

I went to some pretty packed clubs in Mexico a few months ago.

>saw this boat that said “new mystyle” on the side.

Anyways, songkran is in full swing. Already say a kid who was probably 12-13 years old getting attended to by medics for some serious road rash on his arm.

I go to this bar staffed by two sluts because they let me sit right up on the beach with a long chair and they’re really friendly and accommodating

Tight sluts are in decent supply. I got a gogo girls line before paradise agogo closed and smashed her out earlier today for a cool $60. No bar fine. She has a tattoo that says “fuck ass” emblazoned across her butt cheeks but claims she doesn’t actually do that she’s “just a crazy girl.” Bitch looks like a beat version of Carmen Electra. Pretty based


All in all, whether songkran is a super spreader event is whatever. These whores will always spread their legs and it’s just super.

>On another note, I have heard that Singapore Airlines is excellent but haven't experienced it myself.
Accurate, and Changi is on a very short list of contenders for best airport in the world in case of layovers.
>>
>>1993185
Long layovers are kind of a thing of the past (thought maybe the coof will bring them back), but I would say Singapore is arguably the world's best long layover city too. Long layovers really were one of those cool "inconveniences" that just disappeared about ten years ago that a lot of people miss. When you talk to people of a certain age who did a lot of travel in their youth you'll find all of them have spent tons of time in cities like Singapore, Chicago, London, Frankfurt, Hong Kong despite often never consciously deciding to travel to them.

The option was spending two days on a layover somewhere or spend $1,800 more on your flight. Also this whole business of daily nonstops is a relatively recent invention. Some airlines would only do every other day or even once weekly flights to certain destinations.

Either way, even back when Changi was not Disneyland: The Airport people would intentionally fly Singapore Airlines so they could lay over in the city when travelling between the USA and SEA or India.

I'm hopeful that they'll relax restrictions once old people get vaccinated (especially with the conservatives sweeping in the Seoul mayoral election), but rn they're vaccinating at the speed of smell.
