La Fortuna, active volcano, very touristy, safe.

DO NOT GO OUT TO CAPOS AT NIGHT, there is a beautiful beach in the national park, drive past the people who look like they're park rangers, fake uniforms trying to scam you for expensive parking. Also cool monkeys and sloths.

San Jose kinda sucks, still lockdown. Nice mall but that's about it.

>Traveling around CR is a nightmare. The roads are insanity. My first time there, a landslide had destroyed the highway, and just to turn around to find a detour took 3 hours.

Imagine your gf booking the trip and you have to drive a fucking rental after a madening 8 hour drive to chicago and like 12 hours of flying and little to no sleep for two days, across costa rica during the night and with mountain tops and a brand new car.

Yeah. Fuck that but that's what I had to do.

You can drive but you need to understand the gears which isn't hard, lower the number, the higher the incline it's supposed to be on. Spend five minutes on it you'll get it. Also, make sure you have good maps and you should have a "co-pilot" helping you drive and pointing shit out.

Do you not carry your license in your wallet, and bring your wallet with you when you travel? I have two driver's licenses in my back pocket at all times.

Travelling for that long through norway doesnt make that much sense if money is at all a factor, and theres honestly not that much worth seeing. Either just fly into one place, stay there a few day, and fly back home, or if you're flying a long way then visit somewhere else in europe with the rest of the time

Let's say that I committed a crime in country X and if I ever set foot there again, I will be jailed. What happens if I book a flight to country Y but, for example, an emergency landing causes it to land in X?
>>
>>1991413
Most emergency landings are for technical and medical reasons and you sit on the runway or wait in the terminal. If you want to leave the airport you need to go through border control and they’ll see who you are. A few countries will want to see passenger lists of anyone flying through their airspace and that can put you at risk too, but really only an issue if you’re on an Interpol or a terrorist watch list.
>>
>>1991413
You could be arrested, depending on how serious your crime is and if you are traveling on the same passport of the previous country you did your crime in. Lots of people have the same name so if you aren’t a huge international terrorist or other noteworthy criminal you might not be noticed if you have a new passport.
>>
>>1991413
What was the crime? If they aren’t trying to extradite you to face charges it doesn’t sound serious.
>>
>>1991413
you wouldnt ever set foot on X so no worries anon
>>
>>1991413
If Country X is actively looking for you, why not?

Especially the case if you enter the airspace of Country X.

I would kinda like to visit all 7 continents. I have been to Asia, Europe and North America. I don't have much interest in Africa or south America. I have a few questions.
#2 I kinda want to visit a cathedral in Colombia but Its kinda rural. Worried a bit about Crime. I had a old Colombian lady suggest I go to Bogota instead. I also kinda want to visit Chile. So what would be my best option.
#2 I know there are quick tour boats to Antarctica. What would be the best way to get there. Argentina is closest but the county is a mess and south is very rural. Australia and New Zealand would be nice but I assume boat rides are rare.
#3 Africa is really unappealing and it seems to me the best two options are Morroco or Tunisia . Is one better than the other? Is there somewhere between than those two?

I think you would be fine in Colombia, especially in rural areas. Crime is higher in cities, and it's not as bad as you might think, just gotta have common sense. Try to go around with natives tho, always helps and people won't charge you extra if you're buying something.

Obviously there are shady af places you should avoid completely, but you need to ask for those or do a small research online.

I'm genuinely curious about this country and plan on going when travel restrictions are lifted.

Any anons been? How was it? According to the govt its a lvl 1 travel advisory as opposed to the lvl 3 advisory for the caribbean islands. Which means Vanuatu has very low crime.
I'm considering maybe moving there but have never been.
Is it really low crime and are the ppl just friendly?
They're not really africans from what i can tell but some kind of mix between pajeets and islanders which may explain the low crime levels.

Can any anons confirm if Vanuatu is worth setting up shop at?
>>
I haven't been there yet, will be heading there for fieldwork when corona-chan chills a bit but my best mate is a Solomon islander which is pretty similar culture wise and I know a bunch of Vanuatu fellas too.

They're Papuan/Melanesian, genetically about as far from Africans as you can get, been living there for millenia. Massive ethnic diversity but most cultures there have blended with Austronesian south east Asians culturally and linguistically.

Vanuatu and the Solomons are still pretty underdeveloped but they've held on to their traditional culture so society is pretty cohesive, everyone has enough to eat and their governments are reasonably functional. If you're ambitious you can move to Australia or New Zealand. Vanuatu in particular is at least as safe as rural New Zealand. Melanesian culture is more laid back and less hierarchical than Polynesian culture e.g. Samoa or Tonga, people are tolerant. My mate took his white gf to Honiara last year and she loved it, everyone was kind and made a fuss of her and she never felt creeped out.

According to the bro there's not that much to do in town other than get wasted on kava and hang out in the markets, but there's nice forest to walk in, amazing diving on reefs etc. There's all kinds of weird cultural shit further out in the islands too like the dudes on Tanna who bungee jump off huge towers with springy vines tied to their ankles.

If u have any other questions I can ask my mates I guess

Here. Green's for safe, yellow for caution, red for alert. The western green area is the triangle I mentioned beforehand where most of the nightlife happens. From Pinheiros to Brooklin on the margins of the Pinheiros River it's skyscraper city, where all the modern corporate HQ's are located; the surrounding neighborhoods of Moema, Itaim, Jardins and Alto de Pinheiros are therefore the poshest in the city, with mixed business, commerce and residential (condos).

The western green area is more quiet and residential. Aclimação is like an oasis in the middle of the city, tons of recent korean immigration. Ipiranga has some of the oldest streets in the city, as it lied on the old mule path down to the coast. Parque da Independência marks the spot where brazilian independence was proclamated, and Museu do Ipiranga (closed for renovations) warrants a visit.

You have some underground venues at Lapa, Barra Funda and Downtown that may pick your interest. Otherwise there's very little reason for a tourist to leave this area:

Morumbi is also posh, but it's not really worth it facing the traffic. Some big concerts still happen at SPFC's stadium in Morumbi, but these days they're usually happening at Palmeiras FC's stadium near Barra Funda.

Butantã hosts the city's public university, but don't bother visiting, the campus is gigantic and has a lot of empty undeveloped land, making it a bit dangerous.

Brás and Mooca are historic immigrant neighborhoods, but the former is basically a rather sketchy mass shopping district, and you can experience the italian influence of the latter in Bixiga, closer to downtown.

Up north beyond the Tietê river there's a memorial park for the Carandiru massacre, if you've seen the movie. Cantareira state park, which offers hour-long hikes amid old-growth Mata Atlântica forest for some great viewpoints, is probably the only good reason to leave the circled area. The zoo / botanic garden down south are nothing to write home about.

Detailed map of downtown. I think it's worth it visiting downtown for the history and architecture, but you gotta know where you're walking. Like I said, if it looks like it's going down, probably best to not go further. I'll highlight some critical points:

The japanese neighborhood of Liberdade is quite safe around the metro station. It's usually packed during the day, and during the night there's people walking around for the restaurants. Just beware if you go to a concert here don't go walking around at 2am, the homeless population in the surrounding yellow area has skyrocketed recently, wait for an uber near the crowd.

From here during the day you can safely walk to the historic triangle. You'll be passing right by a red area, Praça da Sé with its Cathedral, lots of homeless and people up to no good. You'll be fine if you keep to the left sidewalk and don't stop to loiter, lots of people do this path by foot. This area is called the historic triangle because the old city was centered around São Bento's Monastery (green), the Franciscan Convent (yellow) and Carmo's Convent (red). The jesuit school which founded the city is in yellow because there's usually police around, but it's right on the border of the red area. Otherwise the triangle is pretty safe, lots of popular commerce and old corporate HQ's here. You can go up the Martinelli and Afonso Arantes buildins for incredible views of the city.

Instead of going down into the valley (of Anhangabaú, quite dangerous), you may safely cross into República via two bridges: do Chá (passing the Opera and City Hall) or Santa Ifigênia. Santa Ifigênia is a popular tech shop street, not worth your time. Beware, it ends right at Cracolândia. You don't want to venture into the green area right by Cracolândia, as it's just a shopping area (clothes). The best korean restaurants in town are at Bom Retiro, but you can only get here safely by car.

Turn into Ipiranga avenue instead. República is the bohemian neighborhood of old, housing old-school retail and offices. Traditional restaurants and bars. Sleazy porn theaters and prostitution abound. The crossing between avenues Ipiranga and São João is famous. There are underground-scene shopping galleries, good for record shops. You can pass by República square, but don't go inside, as it has become a homeless encampment. Copan and Itália buildings are on the same block. There's a rooftop restaurant in Edifício Itália, but you can get similar night views in Pinheiros, for much cheaper. Estadão's pork sandwich is a staple of the city.

Talking about food, if you wanna taste the city's other staple sandwich, the bologna sandwich at the Municipal Market, you'll have to get dangerously close to the red area. You go down a steep incline (Ladeira Geral) near São Bento Station and go down the crowded 25 de Março shopping street so you can approach the market from behind, instead of via the dangerous Estado avenue.

If you wanna go to Paulista avenue from downtown, take the yellow line at República station instead of walking the Consolação or 9 de Julho avenues. They may seem safe sandwiched between green zones, but it's really not due to all the buses connecting downtown to the city's deep southwest. See in the map "Paraisópolis" and "Heliópolis"? Those are the city's two biggest favelas, and some of the biggest in all of Brazil.
