Your experience will vary, but one time I ate something sus around 7-8 PM, and the ill effects did not kick in until around 10:00 AM the following day. I felt perfectly fine up until then, then weird freaky shit started happening.

Only up to a certain point. Plan too much, your travel experience feels too rigid and stifling. Plan too little, your travel experience feels too disorganized and chaotic.

Is Naples as bad as everyone says it is? Kind of want to check out the new sex art display at Pompeii in a couple of weeks.

Depends on how much time you have. I have a 15 day trip starting Sunday and I made one for the first time ever just to keep me on track. Usually I travel for a couple of months and with that much time I can kind of come and go as I please which I prefer.

>Would I have better luck finding an English-speaking overseas job if I switched from a financial analyst to a business analyst?
If you are American and have a good resume - "maybe, maybe not". For any other nationality, it's a more clear-cut "probably". The sad fact is that you can be a good financial analyst but your perceived value will be dictated by the strength of the capitalist market you come from, and at the moment (not always but right now) the spoils go to burgers.
>>

Was there only for 2 days, it was pretttyyyyyyyy shit.
I didn't feel safe walking at night, I'm not a pussy, I am a male I've been in some sketchy places in Athens but Naples at night was on another level.
Trash casually on the streets everywhere I walked, it's just not a good city man... maybe just go for a day or two to check out what you wanna check out, but I wouldn't stay past that.

I had multicity tickets for two booked with Aeromexico for a total of $860 in May. I had an unexpected expense come up and I tried to cancel, they refused to refund my Flex tickets. They instead said they sent vouchers to my email, which I never received; I tried disputing through PayPal but they closed the ticket claiming that AeroMexico said that I hadn't booked refundable tickets and had forged my confirmation pdf.

Finally, after four hours on the phone with their customer service and using a co-worker who spoke better Spanish (since the customer service representatives couldn't speak fluent english or acted like they didn't understand me), they agreed to rebook for a later date. Should I be wary of flying with them? They claim that their baggage fees are only $35, but I don't know if they're going to pull a fast one on me.
>>
>>2228286
>Should I be wary of flying with them?
If you're not willing to spend any more time & energy than you already have trying to fight for a refund, then all you really can do is reluctantly accept the rebooked flight.
After you've completed the journey, you should be wary of giving them repeat business. At this point, they already know they've fucked up and been yanking your chain, so they know you probably won't be a repeat customer after this ordeal.

I'm traveling to Spain and I'm trying to fill out their Spth form on the app but holy shit is the app annoying. Im vaccinated and I got tested however when I filled out the form, I put negative pcr test first and I already got a validated QR code. Do I need to fill out another QR from for my vaccination? I didn't even upload a pic or pdf of my negative test result and my form is already validated. When I try to upload any pic or pdf to my form the app doesn't accept it.

Do I just bring my vaccine card and a copy of the negative test result?

No, spaniards do not give a shit about vaccine card. They only want their own QR code.
A negative test should thus suffice as long as it’s less than 48 hours. Also depends from where you’re coming from.

You won't get on the plane as the airline is responsible to check if you're allowed to enter the destination country.

I know you guys probably get bombarded with sex tourism related questions, but I don't know where else to ask this. Group of friends are planning a trip somewhere, but we also want to get the oldest guy in the group (29) laid for once; he's super nice and a good guy, but he's Black, overweight, balding, a weeb, and has a shitload of health conditions and body deformities. I don't know the extent of his conditions, but we know his last and only gf laughed in his face a dumped him on the spot when she saw him naked, and we also know he uses a colostomy bag and is in and out of the hospital getting surgeries all the time. It's all pretty feelsbadman because we love this guy, but none of us see him realistically getting a girl; we've each tried to set him up with one, and it always goes to shit. All that said, where can we go that we can get him some girlfriend or at least a prostitute that'll act like a gf for him or something. I've asked around before about Japan since he's a weeb, but been told even prostitutes there would rather have sex with a dog rather than a Black person, so that's probably out. If it helps make a decision, I'm Hispanic but look 10000% White, so if a Spanish speaking country is the best bet, that's kinda helpful. Sorry for the blogpost, and thanks in advance.

Maybe I do then, because I don't see the big problem. He's depressive about how women find him repulsive and we want to help him experience some sexual pleasure so he can see it's not all that, since we've already all tried to get him a normal gf multiple times. He's even mentioned that he wants to go to Japan because, aside from wanting to go anyways, he'll "meet a cute massage parlor girl". The rest of us don't want to spend a ton of money to go to Japan just to have a girl call him disgusting and have him be suicidal for the rest of the trip, so we're trying to determine where we should go. What is so fucked up?

Get him to lose weight and hit the gym instead of getting him laid. It will help more.

>>2232758
We do actually have him on a diet and exercise plan after a lot of encouraging, but it's extremely slow due to his constant trips in and out of the hospital for surgery.
>>
>>2232784
Sounds like one hell of a daycare service, best of luck. Consider exposing him to travel in general, no need to get him laid. If you really want to get him laid, there is barely any plane on earth where a woman would approach a guy like that, even paid. The odds of your friend getting an STD because of it are also enormous, because you will have to go for a 40 year old hooker in Thailand or something similar. Your other only chance is trying to find some mentally ill woman that likes those kind of guys, but your friend will only end up with even more traumas.
>>
>>2232845
Thanks, but it's honestly not that bad; he takes care of all his health issues himself, we've just encouraged him to do some exercise and eat healthier by doing it with him. The issue is that we've never all traveled abroad with him and that's where all his health problems come into play because we're not completely sure how far he can push himself away from home. Also Jesus, that's pretty bleak and almost hard to believe; there really isn't some place where non STD riddled women would at least not be repulsed by him? He's not hideous or anything like that; he's a handsome enough guy and maintains his facial hair now that his hair is gone. All his deformities would require him taking off his clothes to even see. It just sucks because I think he's convinced himself that he can find someone that'll accept him despite all this once he gets out into the world. Maybe he will, but it would be trash to have the first place he goes to, with all his closest friends no less, violently reject him.

Top tip: there's a business lounge in Istanbul that often leave the electronic gates open. If you walk confidently/nonchalantly you can walk right in - free food, beer etc. Done it a couple of times now.
You're welcome.
>>
>>2233089
>how do not lose my shit
That's wholly dependent on the airport and how much money you're willing to spend. A lot of people with a 8-12hr layover simply check into the airport hotel to sleep and take a shower. You can also pay for lounge access and at least make the wait more tolerable. I suggest you look at the airport's website and see what available services you can take advantage of.

Not so many beggars where I was, but they do try to overcharge you all the fucking time. It’s one of these countries that almist entirely rely on tourism.
Now, Algeria, on the other hand, might be better and a bit more authentic. They hate foreigners so much that the only tourists there are those who REALLY want to be there. It’s more “dangerous”, and you’ll probably need a guide, but I think it’s a better Nafri experience.

I always start by opening google maps to the city or area I want to stay and putting in the dates for the hotel search, that way I can see exactly where the hotels are, and it compares prices from multiple sites. I usually try to use booking.com or agoda to actually book the room if the prices are all the same, but I've used some smaller sketchy looking sites when the deal was good and never had a problem.

You have clinical mental retardation. You're retarded and will get busted by security, regardless of how much you try to bring. At least you didn't make a thread. You might be able to bring edibles and pass them through security but if by any chance a dog happens to be around you are beyond fucked.

There's a sticker on my passport cover put there by the border agent. I generally understand this as some sort of special security marker generally meant for verification or for internal airport procedures.

Don't even have a question but I just gotta vent bros.
Im applying for Czech Citizenship via ancestry and have to go through 100 loop holes. I've spent the past 2 months ordering certificates, digging through my garage for them, getting everything I need.
The final piece of the puzzle was a marriage certificate and I need an apostille on it.
My nan posted it to me and I was lucky enough to find an appointment at the place to get apostilles. I get there and it turns out the certificate is a ceremonial one and not the proper government one.

When flying with bag size constraints, do they allow you to compress the bag in the sizer or do they expect it to naturally go in?
Ryanair has a 40x25x20cm requirement, and while the 40 & 20 are fine, every backpack I have is more like 30-35cm wide, I don't plan to overstuff it so I should have no issue just pushing the sides together for it to become 25cm if that's allowed

You will manage it eventually, as a czech dude I didn't even know you can get it via ancestry and it looks like it's fairly a new rule, however czech bureaucracy is usually pain in the ass in all aspects of life, for example construction permits and immigration process may be slow af because of it. Luckily it's been getting better in recent 2 years I would say (I could fill tax return online finally this year). Anyway maybe if you exclude the price of the housing the life here is pretty neat in general.

How cheap is liquor (ie. not beer) in Prague? I vaguely remember an acquaintance telling me that when he was there, he mistakenly purchased a bottle of vodka that he thought was water. He told me this about 17 years ago, and I've always thought that liquor must be really cheap if the price point was low enough to be confused with water.

I do know that beer is cheaper than bottled water over there, I just have no idea about liquor or wine.

What's the most comfortable thing to wear while traveling? I don't mean when you actually get to your destination and can go back to dressing nice. I mean being stuck in a car/plane/train for 48 hours+. I'm thinking sweatpants and either flipflops/slides a slip on shoe or possible walking/running shoes.
>>
>>2238301
You're right on, a tracksuit is also a possibility, in facts it's the default wear on long-distance trains in the former USSR.
I'd opt for closed shoes so you don't have to worry about getting your feet or socks wet when going to the toilet or outside during a stop.
>>
>>2238301
if you get flipflops get decent ones that use cloth instead of plastic, that shit'll start hurting FAST otherwise
>>
>>2238301
I find that athletic shoes that look very shitty are often the most comfortable. So instead of getting a cool-looking pair of Nikes, consider getting something like New Balance or Skechers. Ugliest shoes ever, but by god, they're comfortable.

Yes, it's legal and there are agencies specialised in arranging whatever routes you want.
You pay per person, get your own cabin (usually owner's suite near the bridge) and as much luggage allowance as you can manage by yourself.
It's not a cheap way to travel (flying will be cheaper in 99.9% of the cases), but you get full board and a giant vessel shared with only a handful of people.
There's also close to no entertainment offered, so you better bring some of your own, perfect to clear your backlog of books/films/games or to write your own.
Also any visa facilitations granted to air and cruise travellers won't apply to you, might need to apply for a visa where you wouldn't need to otherwise.

All in all it's a perfect way to go from A to B if you're interested in transportation and have plenty of time and money to spare.

How strict is Swiss Airlines with their carry-on bag size and weight limits? Their policy is 55x40x23cm and 8kg, so I think my 45L backpack is fine by size, but the weight will be around 16kg. I know to check in online and not go to the counter.
>>
>>2240920
Depends on the route, for some they are quite loose, for others they bring out the measurement cages and scales.
16kg instead of 8kg is pushing it in any case though.
>>
>>2240920
>>2240921
Depends on the airport also. It really is random, cannot help you with that sorry. But just make sure not to make your bag look like 16kg. They usually either weigh every suitcases they see or bags they think it might look big. Or they don't do shit at all.

Befriend a local & have him straw-purchase it for you. That way you'll pay the local price instead of the ripoff tourist price.

>>2238067
If you avoid touristy clubs and bars it's fairly cheap compared to the west and north of Europe (alcohol tax is quite low here compared to other EU states and regular brand of bottle of vodka costs around 14 euros ). And you should avoid buying spirit from Vietnamese vendors who markup their prices just because they are around tourist hotspots. If you are in the city centre just go to supermarket chain like LIDL, Albert, Billa etc. One is in the subway near Wenceslaw square. The other thing about czech shopping habits is the culture of discounts, so you can catch some sweet deals like this kupi.cz/sleva/bylinny-liker-jagermeister (it usually applies across the chain in the whole country), czechs love their fucking discounts so you can encounter 50 % off even on famous brands. Idk shit about wine kev, but it should be affordable too if you look in the right places.

You don't need the $30 packing cubes, the $5 ones will work just fine.

Best way to exchange cash before and during a trip?
>>
>>2242165
not at the airport
>>
>>2242165
>during
If you withdraw from an ATM that's affiliated with a bank or credit union, the exchange rate should be the least terrible compared to other options (such as currency exchange shops, or ATMs that intentionally rip you off).
>>
>>2242172
>>2242166
Is it optimal to mass convert cash in a lump sum beforehand, or convert in small sums as needed at fee-free places?
>>
>>2242426
Depends on the currencies involved.
If you're travelling in an area with competitive exchange rates then converting in small sums as you go will work, if your journey involves remote places then exchanging a large sum beforehand will most likely be the better choice.

>>2242172
Never have the local bank/ATM operator/credit card processor do the conversion for you, always do card transactions in the local currency.
Your bank will almost always have better exchange rates and if they charge for foreign transactions they'll charge for already converted transactions as well.
For withdrawals choose your ATMs wisely, independent machines in airports, malls or even worse, casinos will add additional fees.
If ATMs of a local bank charge fees try to look for another bank that doesn't and stick with them.

Is bringing an Amazon Firestick while you travel to watch Netflix and YouTube in Airbnbs a good idea instead of bringing a laptop with hdmi? How often do they run the new install 'checking for updates' thing?
>>
>>2242443
I feel banks and ATM companies are catching onto the fact that not only can they charge a withdrawal fee, but can also scam you on the conversion rate. I rarely see any ATM's abroad these days which give the actual conversion rate, usually it's like 5-10% less than what it should be.

>>
>>2243098
I'm in Thailand now. That screen shows you the Thai bank's rip-off FX rate, and if you choose no (like you should), you will get charged the conversion rate of your own bank. If you decided to cancel the entire transaction (I don't know why you would at that point, because presumably you wanted/expected to use your own bank's conversion rate) you press the red cancel button, like with any other ATM.
>>
>>2243091
It’s not clear and it’s really specific, from one country to another.
Unless the destination is extremely anal about it and the cops check at arrival (China, Japan, for example), general rule for a “normal” country is at least 24 hours before departure, because of possible flight delays.
In some countries like China, it’s not by hours but by full days, expiring at midnight no matter how fresh your test is. So be careful.

Most countries, in my own experience, do not apply requirements when you’re in transit, either you just stay in airport or at the passport check the cop will ask you if you’re staying in or not. But it also depends of how anal is the country about wuflu.

Do you have a Jordan card (think that's what they are called if I remember correctly)? If not, get one. You can get the bus for pretty cheap there and doesn't take too long. I'd recommend staying the night in a hostel while there and maybe splitting a taxi with someone you meet there to go to wadi rum. If you're in a hostel, you are likely to find someone who wants to go there and would like to split the cost. I wouldn't miss out on either of these things while you are there, they are amazing
