34 year old fi bro here, got lucky with a tech based venture capital start up 8 years ago and retired 3 years ago. I've travelled to about 40 countries and I'm officially bored of this planet.

1) The deliciousness of food reaches a limit, and overtime it all tastes the same. Between 3 star michelin rated restaurants to hole in the walls to places only locals know, it all gets boring. You reach a point where food only tastes good when you're hungry, and at that point anything is good.

2) women, like food, have the same qualities. Over time all pussy blends in together, as do all women. I'm basically gay at this point because between prostitutes (high end ones) and tinder girls and girlfriends, I've fucked over 200 women. It really gets old, especially when you have the option to pay $1000-2000 for a high end escort whenever you want. Also, normal girls can sense when a guy has been laid a lot which makes you even more attractive to normal girls, so it has sort of a snowballing effect.
>>
3) Countries are all basically the same, just different in terms of economic prosperity. This is because people are fundamentally the same, and societies basically just shape themselves around what is available around them. Races are definitely distinct, and I find asians to be uniquely different than other races (excluding blacks, which I put in their own category), but really it's all the same shit. There's only so many times you can go on drunken adventures with people in different countries before it all stars feeling the same,

4) Everything is sort of disappointing once you see it. I find that the best moments in my traveling experience have been when I just walked around a city by myself, thinking about stuff, or riding a train through the country side and listening to an audiobook. Standing on top of Mt Fuji is cool, but it's cool for like literally 2 minutes then you're like "god damnit I need to walk down now"

The real shit in life is friends, family, experiences with people, but I still have the desire to travel for some reason.

What are your best recommendations? Best sites to see? Most meaningful places? No pleb tier shit, please.

Stop doing expensive hobbies and traveling. There is a reason poor people commit suicide at lower rates. Hang out with some poor people and do trashy shit. My poor friend and I found an old metal hollow post with a hole in it and dropped firecrackers one by one into it because it made loud bangs. Try chopping a cinder block with a hatchet. Sit by a shallow creek on a folding chair and watch all the little creatures in the water or just close your eyes and listen to stuff around you, stop going to curated, touristy stuff.

Good insights Oh Pee. Getting jaded is the rite to getting old. It's okay to be jaded and it's okay to feel "meh". Now do LSD and you'll find the answers.
>>
>>2106526
I'm not jaded, I just need more. You can't just keep enjoying the same shit endlessly, unless it's something simple and common like a sunset, etc.

I've done shrooms, they're great. Staying away from LSD though
>>
>>2106528
>I'm not jaded, I just need more.

Sounds like you need to learn how to be content, if this un-ease is causing you to suffer.

Seems like you're on a hedonist treadmill and you need to seek something greater and greater which puts you in a cycle of suffering.

To break the cycle, you have to learn how to be happy with the mundane.
>>

do something creative or something, challenge yourself. life doesn't revolve around fucking prostitutes, eating, and traveling. go read a book or something.

google hobby, you idiot. you sound like the kind of person whos whole personality is just some travel Instagram.
>>
>>2106537
Look into the source of your suffering and discontent. You're looking for external circumstances to feel happy which you won't find because you'll keep climbing the hedonist threadmill
>>
>>2106483
Why are you telling us this?
Have you considered suicide?
This is //trv how?
>>
>>2106483
You have finally come to realize that the sort of life you’ve been living so far, however fun it might have been, is unfulfilling. What have you even been doing since you retired? What have you strived for? What have you built for yourself in that time? I bet the biggest problem you have is a lack of companionship. I bet you don’t have any “real” friends, just a series of fleeting relationships with people you’ve met and had a few good times with, never to see again. I bet you don’t have a girlfriend/fiancée/wife despite, or most likely because of your promiscuity.
I don’t know what to tell you other than you sound like those losers on /v/ that lament how they don’t find videogames fun anymore. The problem doesn’t lie with the videogames or the travel, the problem lies with you and your unfulfilled life.
My advice is to get your shit together. Find some goal to strive toward. Start a family. Although you might find that to be difficult as the price you have clearly paid for your promiscuity is the inability to ever experience true romance.
Get your life together, loser. You have money, people skills and some useful talents which is more than what most people will ever have. If you don’t you’ll in time become depressed and self destructive, which is what you probably deserve.

Well since you are bored how about we help each other, I help you with your discontent, finding a new meaning to life and you help me get the tech I would use to help you started.
>>
>>2106483
All your amazing experiences and you come here for advice. You’re more full of shit than a portapotty on the last day of Coachella. If you are somehow for real and still here, seriously consider suicide. The world doesn’t need more mopey first worlders. Go fuck yourself.

This should be an advert for Buddhism, you absolute fucking degenerate. You learned the best/worst way that satiating your immediate desires does not provide a sense of happiness in your life.
Start taking psychedilics on your trips. Go to the Sonoran Desert and start smoking the dried Bufo Alvarius toad's secretion if you're truly bored of travelling. I've never done it, but have heard it's a blast.
>>

>Buddhism
lol, the final cope of the selfish hedonistic retard. it's literally more self-centered me-focused garbage, just with a veneer of "spirituality" on top. Anything to avoid helping or caring about other people, lol.
>inb4 you don't know anything about Buddhism reeeee I bet you're a christcuck reeeeeeeee

Do drugs my friend
>>
>>2106483
you are rootless, that's your problem. You aren't part of a community of people. That is more valuable than 3 star michelin restaurants.

Not to be preachy, but it sounds like you are realizing that consoomerism isn't quite enough

unfortunately being ultra rich makes having roots in a community harder because wealth itself has isolated you from people

You're a retard, OP.
The real prize is and always will be the friends we made along the way.
I consider myself pretty successful, but not as much as you (although I am a bit younger).
I would trade anything for time with my friends, which includes a few family members and especially my father.
You cannot buy friendship. You cannot demand friendship. It only happens organically when you meet another consciousness that has the same essential personality/soul.
Travel is great, and so is pussy, food, and drink. But none of these compare to friendship.
Also I noticed that you didn't say anything about music. Learn to play an instrument and watch some youtube videos to learn some basic production. Maybe even start a band. It's a great way to create something meaningful.
One day I'll hopefully meet a woman that I would want to be friends with even if she had a dick. I don't know if such a woman exists, but I'm searching anyway.
My succinct advice is a to make a list of all your friends. People that you really care about. I am lucky to have 25 friends around the world, many of which I would die for. Then plan your life around your homies.
Remember that you become like the people you spend time with, so choose wisely. "Based normies" don't exist.
And I say all this as a turbo-autist that has been addicted to this website since I was 13.
Also go do some dangerous stuff. Ride a motorcycle or go innawoods with a rifle, a pack of smokes, and some MREs.
Good luck.

He's just insecure about himself.
But on the other hand why would you try to impress users of a Portuguese lemon-farming forum?

I'll genuinely answer your question if you genuinely tell why you chose that picture to open your thread with.

Ok. Here's an idea. Give me all your money. Then you can start from scratch and take on a new challenge. Win/win right?
>>

It's a really funny picture, that's why I posted it. Completely emblematic of the modern western woman in every way, in cartoon form.

Un-ironically go to jail for 5 years so you can learn to appreciate the mundane, you ungrateful sack of shit whit*oid

Right back at you bud.

>Well it's clear you are basing your views on white girl buddhism so whatever bro.
No... no, I'm not.
>>
>>2107037
I see. I was just curious as there are a lot of people who post pics with shit aesthetic but this makes sense as a joke

>The real shit in life is friends, family, experiences with people, but I still have the desire to travel for some reason.
>any meaningful experiences?

Try traveling with one of those important people. And/or, have your own meaningful areas of interest that you can explore or practice in different countries. Hiking, diving, martial arts, cooking, music, learning languages etc.

The issues you need resolved have to come via change from within, ultimately.

Traveling is consumerism, Consumerism is a dead end

Achieve feedback loop from creative and challenging endeavors, Take on yourself fulfilling responsibilities like having children or go spiritual

This.
What's with all that bragging about wealth that became so common on here recently? I'm surprised that OP didn't mention cryptocurrencies though.

>life without purpose is boring!!

no shit sherlock, why is it always stupid mouthbreathers that get into finance and end up getting rich

you're supposed to find purpose in your life, like opening a dog shelter or something, at the very least

if you want to find joy in your travels then find some kind of purpose, document placed endangered by conflict or climate change, write a book, collect antiques or pieces by undiscovered artists, do charity work, something like that
>>
>>2106483
force yourselve to do adhere to arbitrary rules that make travelling more challenging. IDK like only overlanding, never taking planes. Never paying for transport only hitchhike, walk, sail whatever. the joy you get out of things isn't the thing itself but the effort it took to achieve. I have overland from europe to asia and it was amazing. Just flying to a place and being there in a day some mind numbingly boring to me now.

All that travelling and you made 0 connections with anybody? No long term friendships that you can just chat to online and go see?

If you made zero friends during your travels, then you're just nothing more than a mopey autist.

Of course he's a mopey autist, he posts on this Gambian snorkeling forum.

I mean you're basically treating food, women, other people and geographic locations as items to consume, and complaining you're bored of it. The problem, clearly, is not those things, but rather your dispositional attitude towards them - it's an internal problem, and not a problem with the world.

It's like you're a drug addict, craving the next hit, next dose, next novelty and it's increasingly more difficult to satisfy you.

This all dissolves when you stop seeing the worth, point and meaning of life as the chasing and experiencing of sense pleasure. When women are seen as actual humans, and not "pussy" to be brought and sold. When travelling is seen as genuinely exploring the world, and not ticking off consumer destinations. And even with food - I can assure you the fish you catch clean and cook yourself is more meaningful than the best restaurant meal.

I think the saying, "if you're bored, you're boring" is really quite apt here.
>>
>>2107571
This. OP sounds like a gay white beta male cons00mer who's a boring person because he has worked a lot for $$$ but never worked on his character.
