Ok so kayak tells me I can enter. Should I? Is it too early?

What I am looking for:
- reasonably large, comf, modern apartment to rent for a good price
- fast, reliable internet
- great food
- hot weather
- nearby gym would be nice (it's past time I started doing weights)
- Dating would be nice but it's not a hard requirement

I will be working remotely Central European time, which is why I need a comfy place with good internet.

Does Vietnam sound like a good fit for this? Which city would be best?

If you're young go to talahassee and try to go out with some college kids. Much comfier atmosphere compared to miami and the girls ate just as hot (more white than Latin if you prefer that)

I'm recently (and happily) divorced and want to take a 10-14 day vacation somewhere warm and tropical. I am NOT interested in the sexpat shit like all you incels.

Suggestions on where to go? Best time of year to visit? Want to go somewhere that doesn't hate Americans or white people, and I won't get mugged.

Grand Cayman - expensive - condos are quiet, the fancy hotels are packed. there are "cheap" hotels on the opposite side of the island that have a crap part of beach or have to use another hotel's beach access but will have nice pools, comfy enough rooms and their own restaurant if you don't feel like going out.

I can play saxophone so I guess I've got that going for me. Also some improv experience but probably less useful than instruments.
>>
>>2148751
>play saxophone
OP is better to answer this but what I know about the musicians is that they are really good musicians. Do you have a wide repertoire memorized, including pop, jazz standards, etc? Can you sight read, improv, follow changes, pick up new pieces by ear? Can you double on another horn? Can you play night after night, 6 or 7 days a week, for months? That’s the kind of stuff they do. You can apply for an audition with companies like Proship. They’ll have you play prepared pieces, improv, and a sight reading test from what I’ve heard. A lot of musicians get a single cabin or at worst one roommate and work 5-8 hours a day, and usually get more time to go ashore in port. I’m not sure what the pay is now but it was one of the better jobs before covid.

What is bs about it? I went on my first cruise a few months ago and the concept of included gratuities was new to me

>>2148803
It depends on whether he’s talking as a guest or as staff.
>>
>>2148803
>>2148809
If he’s speaking as a guest, he’s either from a country where tipping isn’t a thing or he’s cheap and trying to justify it by pretending he’s going to give cash tips to certain employees (spoiler: he won’t). If he’s speaking as crew or staff, he means giving cash tips directly to individual employees means they get more of it or he’s staff that isn’t included in the gratuity pool. The automatic gratuities get pooled and distributed to crew and staff as part of a formula, like x job gets y percent of the pool. Most of the crew’s pay comes from this. Cash tips are outside of the pool and they don’t share it with others. Some staff like bartenders or personal trainers, like me, were outside of the pool. Bartenders depend on cash tips and the spa has its own gratuity system. My pay was entirely commission based which meant how well I convinced people to sign up for fitness classes and personal training consultations. There were free classes and classes that cost extra. Of course I was showing skin and wearing skin tight workout clothes and acting bubbly and flirty so the pervs would come to my fitness classes. I also worked shifts as a lifeguard for the salary.

Well, Still think travel is going to be the same?

We got a new variant now, it's called the OMICRON, whatever that is.

Anyway, remember before 2016 when you could just hop on a plan and go anywhere you wanted and cross borders without a worry? Those days are over. Did it sink in yet? Where are the people that mocked me and said this wasn't a big deal? Where are you now? Travel will NEVER be the same and the golden era of travel is OVER.

I'll be back too, because this is only going to get worse. I'll be here to remind you just how wrong you were.

I've been making threads since this started and I always had a lot of people telling me I was wrong and that it isn't a problem. There were a lot of idiots talking about how travel hasn't changed and all that, I just come here periodically to remind them how wrong they were and how wrong they will continue to be as the future approaches. People need to remember the past so they understand how fucked up the present is, it's not better it's worse. Things aren't getting better they are getting worse. Yes, I'm a pessimist and sometimes that is a strength and not a weakness.

I spent a lot of my younger years traveling and it was great. I feel bad for the generations that won't get to experience what I did, it isn't fair. I'm resentful that my generation is depriving them of that privilege out of fear, it isn't right. At the same time, all I do is post threads about it so meh.

I knew this was going to happen as soon as they started some minor restrictions so I made a thread letting everybody know.

I postponed my trip to Europe for next summer since I was told by friends in the travel industry to wait since restricitons will be added in the winter. Im fucking pissed that they're doing this omicron variant now

And to make matters worse Europe is going to include even more mandates saying that vaccines expire after 9 fucking months?
>>
>>2148805
Things are getting back to normal though, pessimist. In the US and EU stadiums are full, people are shopping in malls and are eating holiday dinners with family. This wasn't the case one year ago.

Sure, there's some patch work to be done. They're banning travel to and from parts of Africa. There will be some annoyances with travel for the next 6 months or so.

But travel is still happening. I traveled from the US to Europe over the summer and the only difference was wearing a mask in big crowds and on the plane and taking a covid test before the trip and before the flight home.
>>
>>2148807
Where were you going and when were you originally planning to take your vacation? A lot of Europe isn't under lockdown or on restriction.

>Europe is going to include even more mandates saying that vaccines expire after 9 fucking months?
Only for the first two doses. If you got your booster your vaxxpass won't expire in 9 months. This is a strategy to make sure people get their booster. Nothing more.

Yeah this sucks man, I was looking to go to Spain and Portugal. I'm still travelnig but it's so limited. The worst part is I'm not even that hyped about going to those places anymore because I doubt they are the same. I've already been and I don't really want to see how much they changed.

>>2148808
>>2148810
You are both absolutely delusional. The only reasons there is a little bit of flexibility is to prevent people from losing their minds. I travele all the time before this, now I just limit myself to a few countries. This is the "new normal" and that's all it is, that's the only way you can claim things are normal. This isn't even close to what it used to be. I'm not here to argue about the virus or the vaccine, just here to say a lot of the info on this board is based off pre covid stuff and it's erroneous. I know this becuase I've traveled quite a bit during covid. I look at the threads and just cringe, almost all of them are irrelevant during these times. It's like looking at a time capsule. The denial is so strong it hurts. Travel isn't the same. The golden era is OVER.

>navy seal level shape
no. you're mixing up commandos and FFL. Quite litterally, the only physical requirement is to do 10 pull ups in front of the recruiting officer and your final physical test is literally a long walk with a 30kg bag. Nothing impossible.

These are very attainable goals for people under 25 years old provided you take this seriously. "Disappearing" requires careful planning, if you do not include a "great shape and health" in that planning you are utterly fucking retarded. The only actual contradiction here is that you may be too old for it. I still will suggest you find a way to get a second passport, change your name, then a third one, then change your name. If at some point, a birth certificate,can be forged, which is easier to forge than a FUCKING PASSPORT, good. That will sever your ties with the USA and will remove any suspicion of you ever being a US citizen to begin with.


> Nobody on here is making it there.
Are you mentally retarded ? We're talking about possibilities of doing something. You will never disappear from the US Govt unless you have an entire government backing you by creating a new identity and life and protecting any information regarding that. And even then, if US intelligence is actively looking for you, there is a higher than 50% chance they will find some discrepancies and find your ass. There's a reason why Snowden is hiding in plain fucking sight. Going into any kind of anonymizing protection program will end up with him being found and assassinated and he more than anyone knows that. Nobody is making it, period. It's a thought experiment on how close you get to it.

Yeah, that's the thing. They have some of the best esprit de corps out there due to being completely destroyed and having their identity built from the ground up, by mostly replacing whatever sense of autonomy a soldier has (and god knows these fuckers don't have much) and replacing it all with complete discipline.

What states/towns/cities/metro areas/regions in America have the shallowest people? (Ie. entrepreneurial, meangirl/meanguy-ish, 'keeping up with the joneses' types, status chasers, callousness, materialism, consumerism, general superfice, people who 'aim for the stars', judgemental/exclusive types - places where applying social darwinist 'redpill' approaches in life actually gets you to the bloody top.)

And to the contrast - what states/towns/cities/metro areas/regions are the most humble/least shallow?

(Bonus prompt; would anyone here say that the PNW used to be relatively humble/modest? Then kind of went towards the opposite direction in recent years? Or nah? What's your affirmation?)

Retarded map and even more retarded regional classifications. In official US terminology the "west" includes all 11 continental western US states, which can then be subdivided into either Pacific states and Mountain States; or PNW (also inland PNW), Southwest, or Rocky Mountain and Great Basin.

The western US (all 11 continental western states) is young enough that the entire region has only one American English dialect with slight vocabulary and phonetic differences.

As for the pic being retarded geographically, 5 central Arizona counties have more mountain peaks than the entire state of WY or NM.

Mountain West refers to both geography and timezone, NV (Pacific time) is usually included because it has the 2nd highest peak count in the inland west (Arizona is 1st for inland, but AZ is 3rd nationally after AK [1st] and CA [2nd], NV is 4th nationally in peak counts) and a section of east OR is included because of timezone only even though that section contains almost no mountains while a section of SD is excluded because there is only one mountain range in the entire state. Southwest and inland PNW (partially) overlap with Mountain West as they are component sections within it.

Legally and culturally the inland western states have more in common with each other than the Pacific ones (with the exception of Alaska, which is more similar to the inland west and the midwest legally and culturally), 5 of the 8 mountain states have almost the exact same state level laws.

Ofc the goal will be to party and fuck whores. Tijuana is def safer as a group and if we can get 3 or 4 anons to chip in for a nice hotel room with A/C strictly for partying with whores that would be ideal bc I'm not bringing whores back to my personal hotel.

it's been a "warzone" every time I've been there. as long as you don't let the cops shake you down by respectfully telling them you don't tip or try to fight or murder someone the locals aren't going to fuck with you.

Not really. You can have good time in Köln but nothing worth traveling too, if you are not interested in the Roman history of the town.
