Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

Can /trv/ help me out?

Got arrested for being drunk in public in Oakland,CA and they want me to attend to court. Problem is that I'm currently in Virginia and not from the US, and I can't afford the flight.. My Visa only goes to November,too. I tried to contact them a couple of times, but can't get them on the line.
They don't have my name but the address I'm staying at.
When I don't come to court they'll send out a bench warrant, do you think, when I'll leave, they'll arrest me?

It's a state court case. If you don't have to return to California, you'll be fine. The California court system is not going to issue a warrant for Virginia police to return you for public intoxication. However, I'd recommend you never go back to California, because you'll be on file.

What would you take with you into an extended stay in solitude? I'm having a hard time crafting a search query because I'm not sure how else to reword it. Help with that?

Suggestions are welcome. Bonus if the things are low tech and don't require a lot of space like a deck of cards, dice, journals, pencils, pens, books, puzzle books (e.g. sudoku), etc. Jigsaw puzzles take up too much space and the replay value is really low. Keep in mind this is solitude and not a camping trip, so most board games are out of the question.

no porn, fuck that.
If anything id use that as a no fap, and eventually resensitizing your brain for pleasure in the more biological sense of sex and imagination. Dont go back to porn OP. Id do no fap, and reserve when I do choke my chicken, for just going off memory. Or what you can create in your head. You could seriously do a whole reset. Not many get a chance like this.

acid and weed though, definitely. Nothing profound ever really happens with shrooms for me.. its mostly just a fun high, and I get terrible digestive issues. I only use them if I have no other resort. Acid and weed in isolation, less so weed, since it can be schizo inducing if youre predisposed to it. Especially if youre really in isolation.
So id probably do:
Acid
Spiritual book, a long one
chess
instrument
Paired music progression books
Math books


come out like a true genius autist when youre done.

I'll be going to Anhui China to learn Chinese Mandarin,but I'm a complete idiot so I want a head start, my attention span is horrible and it takes a really long time for neural plasticity to function. Most people are 10x+ faster and smarter than me. What are some methods to pre-learning Chinese? I think this task will be too daunting for me, but it's a personal challenge. Thanks!

hello /trv/

have you or anyone you know been to either Tenerife or Gran Canaria? I plan to winter there and to try to get by as a street performer (I have enough money that I can still survive even if I make no earnings), ideally to tourists, and among tourists I think the ideal demographic is families (kids love that shit). I need to know any and all things that can be be pertinent for a person in that position: where is a good place to find an audience, where is the cheapest to live, how do you get around, what kind of competition am I looking at, anything I need to know about spanish/canarian society, etc. If you or anyone you know have had any relevant experiences, and in particular if you remember where that was, that would be a great help to me.

Gracias añoñ.

>>
>>1470432
That's actually a really good question. I guess because I feel like I'm being judged for staying in America instead of going to somewhere else. So many Americans stay here, only go to Europe or go to the carribian. I feel like it's a cop out. Having said that, the USA has so many gems. I might do a trip here (close), medium and far each year to get a better balance.
>>
>>1470439
People don’t go to Europe much, and they barely go around the US. They go where everyone else goes.

They go to Florida, Tx, Ny, cali, Carrib, Puerto, Vegas, and Mexico.

That’s it. I see what you’re saying, but you’re doing something even most of them don’t.

I overstayed my visa by 1 day and they flat out told me I wasn't getting on my plane and I was to be fined 500 RMB everyday I overstayed.

Be cautious, they will not make an exception even though they did for me by a hair since I had a native with me and the female manager thought I was cute. They had me write an apology note and appreciation for the manager and they had me take a picture with the staff.

This is a chinese visa warning for archive search

I overstayed by two days once, I just forgot that 3 months != 90 days and ended up staying 92 days by accident. It was flagged by their computer and they had to check it a few times because they made the same mistake that I did and thought that arriving on 17th and leaving 17th 3 months later would be ok but the computer said no.

They said the same thing to me (500RMB/day etc) but then, since it was an honest mistake and only two days, I got let off with a warning if I confessed and apologised etc. They did check my flight departure time and make sure I wouldn't miss it though, they weren't being dicks about it.

>>1470285
>For a commie chink country, they aren't so bad with that stuff
That's basically China all over. Their officials have a bunch of rules and some of those rules are dickish but the officials and police themselves tend to be ok and nicer and keener to avoid hassle than western ones.

Well, that's what they're aiming for. I guess the system works (for them).

They told me at first I wasn't boarding my plane.

I thought so too until the police in Changsha told me it's okay to overstay by a few days and not to worry about it.

In the sacred valley in Peru

I don't care about food, I do care about history, I do like night time events, I don't like clubbing.

I like electronics, I only want to see the best temples already seen too many. I do like history. I do like amusement parks. I do like drinking, nature and hiking is ok, but since it's going to be so hot not interested in hiking more 10kms.

Can somebody come with some must do stuff for me, safe to travel alone?

Yes Really. But you didn't understand my point so i'll clarify. Nothing what you just said is untrue but I was talking about how your home country views people who taught ESL. Obviously korea is classist. I lived there two years. Appearance is king. Asian girls are acutely are aware of dudes with an asian infatuation. I never disputed that. My original point was that in the "real world" (guess I should have clarified that I meant when you're back home) that people view teaching abroad as something cool and interesting.

For everything else you said, I agree. Koreans know what a yellow fever white dude looks like. Class matters. Appearance matters. But none of that related to my point.

What are my options on applying for TEFL jobs in Japan and Korea more directly in a safe and reputable way? Has anyone else ignored these programs like JET and just gone more directly into TEFL? I have a degree, will get a CELTA soon and will need free accomodation at first.

I want more flexibility than these programs will obviously give, most of all choosing which city I'm actually going to (which is effectively choosing how your entire life might be set up for the next year or more).


Is this a mistake and I should just accept that JET/EPIK programs are the best way to start, or are there legitimately other good options for starting TEFL teachers that involve choosing where they're going? (or are they all scams?)


I could do with a decent book or mega-guide that sums up all options in each country and what is safe vs what will be scams.
>>
>>1470513
>Review parts of speech, formal names for verb tenses
Thank you very much for the advice bro. I'm going to lay on the genki and make sure I'm well rested beforehand if I get the interview. I was never good with "demo" type things in college, and when I roleplayed anything last I couldn't stop laughing. Idk what to watch/study to improve that. Maybe solo-roleplay some demo lessons, there's got to be some on youtube as a guide. Maybe read tips designed for actors on how to hold your expression and not start laughing. Demo will be the toughest part I think.
My English is great but I don't know formal grammar terminology, so I need to study that as well but nbd. For the spelling were the words all more basic, or were there any college-level words and technical jargon?
What kind of interview questions were asked? I'm used to corporate interviews, "let's run over your resume again, why do you want to work for this company," etc. I don't know what a TEFL company would want to ask.
Might be personal but did you just stay in your country after that or did you try other companies, even companies in another target country?
>>
Is there a TEFL scene here or not really because English is already a national language?

First time in Japan here. It is meeting my expectations and then some.

EXCEPT for one thing. Strong Zero. Holy shit this is terrible. I get it is cheap and strong but it is really shitty. I just had the standard lemon. Is there some secret flavor that doesn't taste like a badly mixed cheap vodka drink? How does it manage to have more rubbing alcohol flavor than actual 40% vodka?
