Have any of you guys ever picked up your whole lives and moved far away? What's your experience like with that?
I'm feeling claustrophobic in my hometown. Too many bad memories and I need a change of scenery. I'm almost out of college thank god, as soon as I graduate I'm getting out of here. I want to know what you guys did

if you were plane hopping i mean. costs hundreds to get there, hotels will cost about a grand a week. plus food. if you want to shoestring budget, then you can stay as long as i wrote for 30k but you are not doing as much

>How the fuck do you spend 10k by traveling in europe for few weeks?
Seems pretty steep to me as well, unless you’re flying three or four times a week on full-fare airlines, or taking a lot of the more expensive international trains (it can cost me a couple hundred just to go from my home in Switzerland to Paris by high-speed train, and that’s only a three-hour, one-border trip).

But it definitely doesn’t seem impossible, or even very difficult—renting a house, for example, or an apartment in a desirable Western European city location, can very easily cost a few thousand per week. I spent something like 2500 for less than a full week’s accommodations in the South of France this past summer, and could easily have spent more. This was for a big house with a pool at the apex of high season, so probably nothing to do with what you and the person you’re responding to are thinking of, but it’s definitely not hard to spend.

How is CS not a safe route? Even if you don't go into CS you can fall back on IT and make easy money.

It feels like its probably even easier (when considering time/effort) to pursue a career in IT consultancy then CS anyway

>CS, IT
I hate how everyone absolutely butchers these terms but I suppose it cannot be helped now that retards have spread it around in language

Originally it should have been
IT - Information Technology, which is a large umbrella term for the industry, "working in IT" includes ALL tech workers
CS - Computer Science, a branch of mathematics

>born and raised in LA

no. fuck this place
>>
>>2327769
I was born and raised in the NoHo Arts District and I'm also an architect, so not involved in the entertainment industry. As other anons have said, it has its good and bad parts. If you come here with the illusion of making it big in the entertainment industry with no backup plans, then I would reconsider that dream since you will have some extreme competition. The city has the capacity of swallowing people up and leaving them homeless if you don't have a cushion to fall back on. With that said, while there are a lot of job openings, it will be in other fields but a lot of the salaries are not keeping up with the cost of living in LA (still not as fucked up as the Bay area though).
Since the Floyd riots, nigs have had a free pass to commit crime in areas previously unheard of like in the San Fernando communities like Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Encino, and Toluca Lake. Burbank has somewhat escaped because of their police department but LAPD has left LA on their own. Neighborhoods are getting back up on their feet but who knows for how long with all the stupid decisions being made by our state legislation in the name of fighting climate change.

I live here too and also make under $100k and people like you (military and retired military) are the only reason this place isn't completely pozzed as much as the rest of California is, a check on the unbridled leftism of LA and SF.

I just feel bad for people who can't afford this area, if you bought in the 2010s you got lucky. I can afford to live here because I bought a house when they were 1/2 as much as today and am paying 1/2 the interest rate you would now. I see friends paying more for a 1br apartment.

why do you do it, glrs? (if there are even any on this board, stop larping faggot)

there are so many obvious downsides to it. stds, getting pregnant by someone you will never see again, someone turning out to be really weird when you're finally alone.

is it part of the vacay experience? being away from home? being free? are you secretly hoping to meet mr right after all?

and this is obviously self-interest but where would you be most open to meet someone for banging in a foreign country? museum, hostel, pub crawl, cafe, randomly on the street? doesn't matter, as long as he's not a weirdo and somewhat handsome?

Here's what I would do with 24 hours in Delhi. Get a room at the Holiday Inn at the Delhi airport. Stay inside my room and watch English language TV, drink bottled water and only eat snacks that I brought with me (muesli bars, pretzels, chips) or pre-packaged imported brands that I recognise. When it's time for my flight out of Delhi check out of the hotel, check into my flight, go to the boarding gate and get the fuck out of that shithole and never return.

Looking to do an asia trip, went to Japan in 2019 and it seemed like the most easy mode place in Asia to visit, safe,clean, western friendly food, easy to get around, plenty of english, etc.
Looking to spice it up a bit, and either do Taiwan or Vietnam. Taiwan seems alot like Japan, Vietnam seems like the total opposite. There's seems like more cool shit to do in Vietnam and it would be cool to live like a king in a poor country, but honestly no joke I'm scared about dying crossing the street. Taiwan seems like the safe route with plenty of nice city and nature attractions although not as adventurous. I have two weeks of vacation time and a $5k budget, thoughts?

>>2327797
I've been to both, $5k budget is overkill for two weeks.
Due to its colonial roots, Taiwan does feel more like a budget Japan. Vietnam feels like the wild west in comparison.
Unless you have experience riding a motorcycle/moped before hand, I would not recommend riding in Vietnam, too easy to get flattened by a semi truck. Besides if you are spending that kind of money just take grab to be on the safe side.
>>
>>2327797
It's really just whether you want developing or developed. Both are great. That budget should be enough to be pretty comfy in either. If you're a bad enough dude to use your own transport, it's easy to get scooters in both. I rented a scooter for two weeks in Taiwan for like $150 and it was fun. Tarako Gorge is a trip
>>
>>2327797
Two weeks for 5k should be more than enough for both, you could easily stretch that for 2 months like the other guy said. Although you'll be able to stretch your money far more in Vietnam methinks.

I'l speak for taiwan since that's one i know of, but like you said, it'll be pretty redundant with Japan as it's basically a rural province of JP in aesthetics and culture. They just happen to speak mandarin.

Taiwan isn't that safe road-wise either, some people really drive like assholes there. I wouldn't jaywalk there to be honest. On another note, Cooming won't be an issue in both places but you'll drown in pussy in Vietnam.

Taiwan is great if you're planning to stay there for a while and want to take things slow. If you really want to spice it up, you should go to Vietnam. But you wouldn't regret your choice if you went to Taiwan anyway.
>>
>>2327797
>honestly no joke I'm scared about dying crossing the street
Traffic in urban VN is no joke at all. I find it’s best either just to plunge purposefully into the traffic and let it part and flow around you like a river, and/or follow an old vendor lady with baskets on a pole over her shoulders.

If you do get hit, I have it on good authority that if you need to choose between being run down by a cyclo or a motorbike, choose the bike. Cyclos stop slower and have sharper edges.

>cock related—he’s from Hanoi
>>
>>2327797
Vietnam is pretty cool OP! Haven't gone to Taiwan so can't comment, but the food here is amazing- personal favorites mostly come from around Hue (central VN). People are friendly and patient when I try to speak VN with them.
You won't get hit by anything. Not accounting for cars, you can probably close your eyes and cross the street just fine 9/10 times. People dodge you on autopilot.
