I really wanted to do Luxor but I couldn't fit it in with what little time I have. I figure I'd do Luxor and go along the Nile one day when I'm not as pressed for time. I decided Alexandria because it's closer so I can do a day tour and it's a lot cheaper.

I don't buy the nastalgia for SPG though, it's almost always through rose-colored glasses.

Now all we get is being Bonvoyed on a regular basis...

Marriott's are generally nice and have comfortable beds.
They're not McDonalds. McDonalds is like Red Roof Inn.

Just because they’re a chain doesn’t mean it’s shit. Chain restaurants are usually shit and I generally avoid these except for trying once, if said chain doesn’t exist in my country or elsewhere.
Hotel chains, on the other hand, are often quite consistent and have ok quality as worst (for most of them). Thing is, it’s often run differently than restaurants. The hotel owner defines a budget but doesn’t want to get fucked with management issues (which are obviously the biggest issues with hotels) and chains usually provide efficient management for the owner.
I used to wanting to travel in indie hotels but apart from higher ends or very exceptional cases, they are often subpar, by my standards anyway.
I mean I try to view hotel as something the least personal possible, as long as service is useful/helpful, the bed is comfy, the room is clean. Everything else is bonus.

will you be camping or staying at a hotel? Will you be making your own food or going to restaurants?
>>
>>2245243
6k MINIMUM if you are hoteling it and not renting a car. If you are camping, maybe 3K, but I’m not familiar with campsite rates.
Flights range $39-79 one way between Islands. You can lower the cost by using flight miles.
Costs go way up outside of Oahu because lodging is geared toward luxury as opposed to camping.
Food is 20% more expensive. Dairy is double.
All of the major islands have a bus system, but outside of Oahu they are very infrequent and picky about which routes they serve. The Hele-On bus for instance won’t go to any exciting places more than once or twice a day.
>>
>>2245236
You can rent a modest furnishedfinder for 2k, a nicer one for around 4
https://www.furnishedfinder.com/property/358462_1
Food is expensive especially if you drink things like milk that have to be largely imported. Assuming 100/week for groceries and transportation costs I'd say 5k is a safe number.

I can comfortably hang around an airport (assuming no lounge or dayroom in an airport hotel is on offer) about three or four hours. If there’s a good lounge I can manage maybe six without complaining. I HAVE hung around in airports for as long as ten or twelve hours, cannot recommend to anyone sane. Nowadays in the very unlikely event I wind up with such a long layover I try to make an excursion into the city if I can. But I avoid that kind of nonsense.
>>
>>2245320
In a lounge, 3-4 hours max depending on the quality of the lounge. A good Delta SkyClub I can do 3+ hours, some random shitty overcrowded Priority Pass club, less.

If my flight is any later than that, I am booking on a different airline or pushing it a day and sleeping in a hotel overnight. I don’t wait around at airports.

You should be far more concerned about your and their health and welfare as a result of the "vaccine".

How do I know if my flights are on the same ticket?
I'm booking packaged flights through Expedia, and it's my understanding that if there's delays and I'm on the same ticket + I miss a connecting flight, the airline has to put me on the next plane free of charge.
For example:
>Dublin to Helsinki (Finnair)
>2hr layover
>Helsinki to Haneda (Japan Airlines)

Am I safe in the event of any delays?

>>
>>2246559
both finnair and jal are members of oneworld alliance which means they have co-ordinated support and so on. helsinki has a specific oneworld support desk so that would be your first port of call in case of any delays on your flight from dublin. they will generally try to support you but of course it does not have to be on the "next plane" since of course that flight might be fully booked. both finnair and jal are airlines with a generally good reputation so it is unlikely that you will have any problems barring natural disasters, ww3 etc
>>
>>2246568
>>2246563
I wonder if there's a way to check (before booking /payment) if connecting flights will have the same 6 character ticket number?
Believe Expedia call it a confirmation number / booking ID
>>
Play stupid games (booking on OTA), get stupid prizes (your reservation is fucked)

What is so hard about booking a multi-city trip on your own on the airline's website?

If you answer is you're a poorfag, you deserve the streetshitters on Expedia if you have the misfortune of talking to them

FWIW, when the PNR is joined, missing any part forfeits the upcoming legs. They will help if it's not your fault such as due to delays, etc.

If you do everything you're supposed to(show up on time, have correct docs etc.), but something out of your control still fucks up, just go to the counter with your ticket in hand.. like anyone else?

I think it exaggerates a little, but mostly true. 90% of japan is shitty towns with one main road with a pachinko, combini or two, chain restaurants and car shops, with old people making up most the population .

Its literally like flyover states in every way. Yet i noticed people posting lots of videos and images on instagram these days of random suburbs in Hachoji or any random boring place with millions of views.

I think your viewing this from a white American pov. In other languages, top pic IS interesting. I've had lots of friends come from different countries and marvel and American cities. They want to try eating at Denny's like in the movies, they want to see downtown, walk in the stupid little parks and take pictures of abandoned barns. It's terrible for us, but for them it's new.
The same thing happens to western people in Japan. They want to see the strange new architecture, try the quirky sandwiches, or eat ramen like in anime. And eventually they get bored, like (you)

Leaving for Miami soon where I will have 2 days in the city before going on a cruise. Never been there before, what should I do? Not interested in nightlife/partying. Would like to walk around some nice waterfront/downtown areas at night, eat some local cheap food, go to the beach (which one?), visit a cool historic or cultural site, just get a feel for what the city is like and maybe go to a museum or aquarium, something indoors for the middle of the day when it's too hot.

Nowhere in Miami Beach is cheap. Drinks at a hostel bar at $15 and food is $30/plate. No street vendors. There are some street art areas if that’s your thing which don’t cost much. Can’t speak for the aquarium or museums. Overall, Miami is a very uptight city full of rude New Yorkers and Latin Americans with money. I would probably take the train up to Hollywood, Delray Beach, Jupiter, or West Palm for more affordability and better vibe. Splurge on some stone crab claws though.

I’ll try to be brief, but am willing to elaborate on any of this if it helps the discussion. Some elements of this are anonymized or deliberately changed for anonymity.

I always thought my end goal was to end up [cool hipster west coast city USA] but personal reasons or work have always barely stopped me. I am now at the point where I am making the money to go and have no relationships holding me back. But in the last 2-3 years, my hopes of actual long term happiness by way of owning a house have disappeared. I was absolutely positioned for a dream home in some cool west coast city until COVID. I could still have a lesser house or rent forever but that is not a reality I worked for.

Instead my most recent plan is as follows. Move to the eastern USA in a city I don’t like at all, but has low cost of living, low taxes, and a good airport. Basically live in an apartment that is a glorified storage unit, and plan on being gone 80% of the time. I need to be back in the USA for approximately one week per month and I’m hopelessly attached to too many of my belongings to live out of a suitcase. I plan on working the USA-based job on USA time (so, South America/Europe/Africa mostly) and pretending nothing is different. I do not think this is the best way to be happy permanently, but I have no other ideas. Part of the reason I want to hang on to my belongings/identity is because I would like to have a house, a wife, a dog someday in the USA, but what I will not do is pay a flipper double what he paid in 2018 to do so. I consider myself well traveled and am not concerned about safety/language/etc as much as I am solid internet access and legal issues like visas. I have been running it around in my head to no end and simply cannot decide if this life is attainable, wise, or to any degree better than renting in [cool west coast city] waiting for some unlikely drop in real estate.

Yeah I mentioned that, without knowing what his field is it's very hard for me to give usable advice here. Again, if DN is that much of a passion you must be willing to change jobs or fields.

>>2246418
>I'm still willing to take the risk. I just don't think it's as easy as "find another job" or "ask your boss" as the era of everyone looking the other way is over... or at least, out of self preservation, I'm going to act like that is the case.
Been working since I was 16, with 12 years EXP and a good resume my position protects me from dumbshit. Again like I stated, you often will need to be more than a front line data entry/pick up the phone guy. I've had 4 jobs and just go to another one if something isn't workable since my linkedin and other contacts have a net for me, I'll talk with a staffing or recruiting agency and just go boom done. Like in Japan on the spot during some bar talks with some japanese people I was listing off my industry certs and got a job offer on the spot for a laughably low 55k/yr BUT HEY FREE JAPANESE VISA!!!!

For this life style you're going to need to build your resume out and stand out, not trying to sound mean here but that's just the way it is.
>>
>>2246426
I appreciate the criticism because this actually makes me feel better. Last week I had someone ask me if I wanted to work for them at a bar (not a job offer yet). I think my resume is finally getting legit. Even if I was the most employable person in my field, I still don't like changing jobs. The last time I changed jobs it was for a big raise and I still lost sleep over it. I don't like change when it comes to something so fundamental as source of income. Living in another country short term I can handle.
