My fiance and I just broke it off. Not getting hitched anytime soon. In the meantime I want to fuck as many proasties as humanly possible. No budget constraints but I believe spending more than $300 per hr is just silly. I have been out of the game for a while now so help me out here with some updated knowledge of the best places to travel for nookie. No Asia please- I am not into spicy tuna.

Sadly a lot of places where the owner claims they are screened don't necessarily follow through.
You'll also find that in places where sex business has been legalized, a lot of working women haven't bothered to get registered or an ID card because they're too lazy or cheap to be regularly tested.

What the fuck is "nightlife"? Can someone explain this to a guy who has never been outside past 8 pm other than when /nightwalking/ in his quiet suburbs? Don't people party the same way all over the world? Why would this affect your choice of travel destinations? What countries are seen as having god tier/shit tier nightlife? Is it worth it to go outside during the night, do you actually meet new people? Do you have to drink to enjoy the supposed "nightlife"?

I bought some at a South Korean airport, I can't even remember what it tasted like so it must have been pretty forgettable.

Imma be honest, Disney world aint what it used to be. Last time I wen their was 5 years ago, it was kick ass. The staff was excellent, tbe rides were cool, the shows were great, but from what I'm hearing, even before the covid-19 pandemic, disney world was kind of starting to become shit. Doesnt help that many attractions are outdated as hell (Especially EPCOT) and the fact that the staff is starting to slack off quite a bit. Litter was starting to increase as well as the general hygiene of the parks started to wane. It started to become more noticable when Galaxy's Edge opened. Besides it's blatant disrespect for the IP it represents, Galaxy's Edge is just a glorified shopping area with a star wars theme and a crappy ride. The food was shit, the lightsabers/merchandise were heavily overpriced, and it honestly gave nothing to star wars fans at all, not even fans of the sequels, who this was aimed towards. Bottom line, Disney is starting to lose its grip with their parks roght now. Sorry if Im kind if being overbearing, I understand why you'd go to disney, but as of right now I'd stick with universal Orlando or the japanese disney parks.

I'm 22 years old and worth about £150k. I have never been to a city outside of the one I grew up in and the one I went to university in, KHHV until 6 months ago, only took up hobbies a year ago, no close friends etc. Childhood was beyond fucked up which probably caused a lot of this, have had loads of time and opportunities to go out with people, have sneed, go travelling etc but turned them all down for ages.

Anyway starting medical school in a few months and part of me really wants to reject my offer (cannot defer) and experience everything I've missed out on while I'm still young, mainly traveling since could do the rest at uni anyway. Is this a good idea or would it likely be overwhelming? I know this might sound really dumb but my social experience is minimal

Finish med school. You have your whole life ahead of you for travel, but med school may be an opportunity you miss out on.
>>
>>1807996
You are in a tough situation bro. I was in a relatively similar situation as you, down to the amount in savings, and age. I turned down going to university in my small hometown to travel and focus on social experiences I missed out on, and while I do not regret my decision, and had an amazing time in my 20s, it could have gone either way. You have to think about what you value more, medical school and a future career in that field, or travel and social experiences while youre young. You may not get a chance to go to med school again, but if you waste away the rest of your youth going to school and not having the experiences you crave, thats shit as well. If you dont go to med school, there will for sure still be career opportunities in the future after travel, but will there be travel opportunities after med school, i think this is more doubtful. I dont know about how much time off doctors get, but I would assume not much.

>>1808033
>You have your whole life ahead of you for travel
And he has his whole life ahead of him for career and school. Travelling in early or mid 20s is 100x better than in your 30a or 40s.

ITT we discuss making the most out of travel as social retards with little to no prior human interaction.

Do share tips and stories of getting out of your comfort zone and having good experiences when travelling. What would you suggest to autists going travelling for the first time? What do you do when you're offered to go to a night club but hate crowds and dont know how to dance? etc

My personal advice would be to try hitchhiking.

It seems daunting being stuck in a car with some stranger but its actually pretty fucking cool. Because if you just travel on bus and trains you very rarely talk to people which gets rather depressing quite quickly but hitchhiking you are forced to talk to people and you get to meet locals and learn about the local area. Also often the people driving you will be very happy just to talk about themselves and the place they live so it doesnt matter much if you lack speech skills

One time I got picked up in southern Utah by a rather unassuming bloke then after a bit he proceeded to tell me how the area we were in was run by a polygamist cult that he grew up in and gave me a tour of the area. Such a random and memorable encounter that could only come about by hitchhiking. Usually its hard to meet interesting people but when you hitchhike they come to you

>Why did 9/11 cause ALL governments to enact extreme security measures, when there were many more terrorist incidents in the 70's that did not cause any increase in security?

Oldfags of /trv/ what was it like before 9/11? Will this coronavirus be the next 9/11 ushering in permanent changes in how airports treat travelers?

>9/11
It was inevitable that they would eventually take actions to prevent hijackings. If the Taliban didn't do it, some other group would eventually have done the same thing. The security measures went too far and are not effective enough, but that's life.

>Coronavirus
I get it, the numbers are low, but it's hard to argue that without any lockdown of any kind, it wouldn't have infected half the world in a matter of weeks. If they started lockdown later, it would have become inevitable eventually as well.

Permanent changes will come. I don't expect them to be as disruptive as the 9/11 changes. Body heat detectors were already implemented at a few major airports (NRT for example), airplanes already have hospital-grade HEPA filtering systems that entirely recirculate the air in the cabin every three minutes, masks are honestly a good idea for air travel even when there isn't a pandemic (I'm pretty sure last time I got sick was from flying), and a few other minor recommendations will be all it takes for people to feel comfortable flying. 9/11 shook peoples trust in being in a plane at a much deeper level.

Haven't heard of it being called exactly that, but that's probably Lou Malnati's. People put it up there with Giordano's as the best pizza in the city (although everyone has their own place). Giordano's is more well-known, so it makes you look more discerning to direct people to Lou Malnati's. Both have a pretty nice handful of locations at this point, so you shouldn't have to go too far out of your way if you want to check them out.

I posted this in early May and still think the timetable is more or less accurate.
>Honestly I don't see international travel coming back before October.
>June Germany, Austria Switzerland (maybe some scandis like Denmark and Finland and Poland) will reopen for travel of nationals and permanent residents of those countries
>September we might see the Schengen zone open up again for intra Schengen travel for citizens and permanent residents with only a few restrictions, also US/Canada probably Mexico gradually opening up for travel
>October, oversea and international travel gradually reopens but there will still be a lot of places that will have a 14 days quarantine for people from X or a complete travel bann for Y.

The only change I would make is:
- Mexico is still a wild-card, they're open but it's completely possible that other countries will shut the doors to/from Mexico at any moment and with 2000+ new cases per day for over a week it gets more and more likely.
- South America will mostly be off the table till January with the exception of Uruguay that could start to reopen soon for intercontinental travel
