>from Thailand superstar vlogger living lush to drunken excursions in Mexico and finally back to a basement in Ohio

Is he, dare I say it, /ourguy/

What went wrong?
>>
>>2064368
nothing really went wrong, he probably would have had a shitty life in Ohio if he just stayed home. Instead he had an interesting run, and it won't be possible to do the same thing after Covid. As far as his personal life goes, he should have buckled down and married a pattaya girl because that is kind of his home, he did good there and got along. It's fucking weird how some people you would never expect just do ok in some other countries, but he meshed with Thailand perfectly and should probably just settle there somehow. He's not going to be happy in the USA.
>>
>>2064368
This guy fascinats me. The way he becomes completely fucking unhinged when he’s drunk and how he always says he won’t drink and does it again. The completely spaced out look in his eyes. he’s like a vlogger-savant. I don’t get how these guys are confident enough to put themselves on the internet and withstand constant criticism and being in the public eye. I look 10 times better than him and dudes like DoMoreLife but they just have no problem putting their UGLY fuckin faces in front of a camera and DRAWLING on about this and that.

It’s insane.

Alright boyos I am from DC and have visited the following US places

>Philly, PA
>Portland, ME
>Nashville, TN
>Charlottesville, VA
>Atlanta, GA
>Annapolis, MD

I’m on the east coast, obviously, and my 2021 resolution is to travel more. I am particularly interested in food and history. Where should I go next? Charleston? Albany? Puerto Rico? I usually spend about 2-5 days in each place before going back home. Where should I visit next?

And no, I am not vaccinated. Nor do I plan to be.

I rented an apartment I can see from this pic and I’m leaving once my lease runs out. It was a fucking disaster. Don’t bother with this shit city and the pretentious as fuck people that live here. It’s cool to get an Airbnb for a month or 2 but do yourself a favor and don’t ever fucking move here.

the nature and outdoor locations reachable from portland will be nice.

>It’s cool to get an Airbnb for a month or 2 but do yourself a favor and don’t ever fucking move here.
As far as West Coast cities go it's the most affordable, with access to the rest of everything out here. Trains run up and down the coast and take you everywhere, the rent is cheaper than Seattle or SF or LA, with comparable amenities to those cities. Employment is easier to find too. But it's far from a tourist destination. There's an interesting music scene and cool bars/parks around town and the light rail will get you most anywhere youd want to visit. Within a week or two, though, you'll run out of neat stuff to find in this city. I'd make it a stop off as part of a road/rail trip especially for some events like the Rose Festival or something at the Japanese Garden. Everything else good and fun, the beach and forests and Mt. Hood/Columbia Gorge are outside city limits anyways.I wouldnt call the city "dead" but downtown is still covered in graffiti and boarded up, save for the area around the university. Even the 7 Eleven right by the justice center, open through every single riot, eventually had to close up shop. That area wasn't much fun before though, and covid probably did more damage to it than the bricks and tear gas.

Land whale in the middle seat, I was in the aisle. Her fat was seeping over to my side, her breathing sounded like she was constantly out of breath and she fucking stunk. Worst part? She got up every 10 or 15 minutes to go to the toilet, I assume from her untreated diabetes.

Offered to swap seats with her after the 3rd time and she started groan speaking about how she paid for that seat and she was staying there.

Although after speaking to the cabin attendant she moved me to a spare seat in buisnesses class, im pretty sure she looked at the ham planet in disgust when I was explaining the situation. Thanks Stacy.

> A few weeks in Italy for school
> Moderate budget
> Beginner in Italian language, can ask basic questions and form simple present-tense sentences
> Interested in nerdy stuff: philosophy, math, Roman history, etc.

I was given the advice of not spending all of my time around other Americans, but I also don't want to spend my time drinking/partying/etc. Where should I go to meet Italians with similar interests where my bad language skills won't piss them off?
>>

What's the best country in this area to save lots of money living in and teaching english? I'm thinking either Thailand or Vietnam, though I kinda want to travel and live/teach all over the place once I'm in the area. Won't be for a couple more years as I'm still in uni, but I'm wondering where the best place would be to lay low, make some good money, and pay off some of my student debt would be?

Pretty good. It's not as exciting and exotic as most other nearby countries imo (maybe just because it lacks a lot of the craziness of China, which was one of the main appeals of China when I first visited there), but it's enjoyable. I don't think I'd recommend traveling half way around the world just to visit Taiwan, but if you're already in East or South East Asia or planning to travel to other countries too, I'd definitely recommend stopping by for a few weeks.
>>
>>2060176
None of them.

Southeast Asia's golden days are finished. It'll be years at this point before these countries are open and when/if they finally do open, theyre not going to be recognizable and will more than likely just be geared specifically towards superficial, empty, Chinese nu-money and bus tours.

I taught, briefly, at a Thai university a long time ago. It is about the best gig you can get in that country, unless like being a live-in servant to an especially rich Thai Chinese family (the drawbacks of which outweigh the financial benefits in my opinion).

I had a very comfortable life. I did not make anything resembling money.

All my regular-teacher friends ran away to do a season or two in Korea every couple of years for the cash. Pay was 3-5X as much and housing/flights were included.
>>
>>2060183

Based. I love taiwan.

Is 31 too young to go to Pattaya and coom? I’m an incel white guy with a good degree and income, every time I masturbate I think of how
stupid the idea of going to Thailand is, but the longer I go without mastuebating, and my sexual frustration builds, the more I want to go to Thailand. I know I should work on myself but honestly I check all the boxes (job, money, gym rat, own place, nice car) and I keep hitting a wall. Dating apps enrage me because despite my efforts and despite dates, I don’t consume alcohol so the dates go kinda boring, and the times I definitely had the in with some girls who blatantly wanted to have sex, I just backed out. I don’t fucking get it what am I doing wrong. Sorry for blog posting but some of you here seem to actually have good advice, I’m one of the TTT dudes and i don’t want to go to Thailand and throw away what could be a good life in the states. All advice welcome thanks for reading

>>
>>2064247
I hear you, not taking shots at you. I mean look at cheap charlie and bar fines and Ben Newton they all threw their shit away hard.

I’m not hating on the idea of Thailand but as an incel the perception of it changes depending on my mood, like if I go a month with no female interaction (or worst, from the shit show of being blue balled via text on dating apps) I think fuck it I’ll just go to Thailand and score that sweet TTT. But when I coom I just think Thailand and the idea of it is retarded and start focusing on building my life.

How the fuck do I channel sexual frustration for good?
>>
>>2064249
To me it seems like you have an unhealthy relationship with sex, and I'm guessing you most likely watch porn. I'd seriously recommend reading this if you want to see sex/masturbation in a new light: https://easypeasymethod.org/
Not trying to shill btw, I'm only mentioning it because I had the same mindest as you, of only wanting to coom in sloots when I hadn't jerked off in a while, and I found it helps dispel that mindset.

Does anyone keep traveling the same route over and over? For example I'm going from one country A to country B, then from country B to country A, then from country A to country C then from country B to country A. (In the meantime I get from country C to B)

The flight crew is still the same, except 1-2 people that rotate. They sometimes look at me. I wonder, what is going through their mind. xD

>Does anyone keep traveling the same route over and over?
I have a few flights I have been on many times, but I mostly mix it up—because I live in Switzerland, work in California, and have family in Massachusetts, I have been on the Swiss nonstops between Zürich, SFO, and BOS half a dozen or more times in the last handful of years. It’s pretty nice once you have status (I don’t presently because COVID, but I have in the past); the crew gets to know you a bit. Used to have a similar experience on Singapore flight 1 or whatever it was—nonstop SGP SFO. They’re really nice to you the second or third time through.

19 year old incel virgin here. Also a 2nd year uni student who translates Japanese porn into English to pay the bills.

When the pandemic ends my plan is to go to some major Japanese city and just use HelloTalk, Tinder, etc. to find Japanese people to meet up and do things with (especially women), and I want to do that as much as possible within those 3 months, thoroughly embarrassing myself in the process, hoping that I'll make some friends and interesting memories out of it, develop my character, improve my Japanese, and maybe even have some sexual success with Japanese women while I'm at it (what with me being a somewhat exotic and interesting person in Japan as a westerner who knows Japanese to a fairly high degree). If I don't end up having the sex by the end of my trip, I guess I'll end up going to Tobita Shinchi and fucking a prostitute anyway so it's not really that big of a deal.

I have 5 figures in savings. So money shouldn't be too big of a problem for me, but at the same time I want to penny pinch as much as possible simply because I like being frugal. With all that in mind, what city should I stay in for the best experience, what are my cheapest options for accomodation (assuming that I don't mind staying in hostel dorms, etc.), and what are some other things I should do to have the best possible experience while I'm there.

I'm sure there are some jaded expats here who have something insightful to say about the subject.

has anyone done this?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ateVNngKQUA

there are better and cheaper ways to do that, but am all in. I'm that type of that guy that loves to move places at all times, I love visiting new airports, getting to airports, finding where the gates are, going through security checks, I love being in an airplane, I love take off and landings. Whenever the pilot announces "Take off" I get this really nice adrenaline rush, it makes me feel really good. Like orgasm LOL. It's so fucking awesome. Airports are also fucking lovely, most often I just feel the good vibes, families going on vacation, very peaceful. They are also usually clean and minimalist. They are usually similar and easy to navigate, but they are also so different. Sometimes people feel nervous, but I think its is the best part of the trip LOL.

Also, not to mention those flight attendants, they are very nice looking, charming (positive energy!) and take care of you if needed.

I also have no problems falling asleep inside a plane, its actually pretty comfy, so I could always visit a city, explore it, then book some planes and sleep few hours here and there. I hate routines and this is unorganized, good. You never know where you end up in ~3 days.

Once I feel like staying for longer or taking a little break, I could always return home or book hotel for longer.


hm, i hope there is nothing wrong with me. Anyone shares the same thing? Merely just hobby I find interesting.

Definitely not. It’s part of the trip you should should enjoy too. Don’t let it disappoint you or discourage from flying.

I personally find the worst thing getting to the airport, I haven’t found a reliable ways at all times so I had to rely on taxi, but then it’s the best.
