Can we get a meetup thread going? We used to have one all the time but they seem to have dropped off the radar for the past while.

For all us >>>/trv/lers making our way over the world, it's always nice to meet a local or hang out with another traveller far away from home. Grab a beer, go on an adventure or just do whatever you want to.

Probably include some details to make sure who you end up meeting is travelling for similar reasons (Ie a backpacker meeting a sex tourist might not be the best mix for either).

Hey guys, I'll be graduating from uni in May, and I am trying to land my first job in a new American city. Here is some context of my current background:

My hobbies and interests are more directed towards outdoor recreation. I enjoy going on camping trips, hikes, exploring nature, and playing sports. I also enjoy fast paced thrills, like rides at amusement parks, paintball matches, and skydiving.

In terms of weather, I am looking for a city that is not extremely hot during the summer, and not extremely cold during the winter, but still maintains a four seasons type of climate. I am also looking for a city that is not susceptible to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, or tornadoes. Blizzards are fine though.

In terms of food, I will eat pretty much anything, although I prefer a healthy cuisine, and am looking for a city with a healthy fit culture, where the citizens are very educated and conscious about their health.

I like music, although I am not too big on concerts and live music, so a city without a big music scene is not a problem for me.

I drive a car, and I prefer to be in a city where the residents drive their cars. Mass transportation is also an option for me, although I prefer to drive to work in the morning. It does suck to sit in traffic though, so a city with limited traffic would be a huge plus for me.

In terms of renting, I am cool with living on top of other people, but I do prefer living alone. Also, I would hope to find a city with reasonable rent. Nothing too crazy, in terms of rent in relation to the national average.

Also, I would like to be in a city with a lot to do after work. A city with a large population of college aged students that go to nightclubs and parties after work. Since I would be moving to this new city alone, I would hope to find it easy to make new friends, and a city with a lot to do would accommodate my situation.

Cincinatti is hot and humid as fuck in the summer, you lying faggot. It's also a nigger-infested shithole with virtually no redeeming qualities.
>>
>>1395725
It gets in the Mid to High 80s in the summer. That is not hot as fuck unless you are from someplace that is cold as fuck.

I don't have anything to do with Cincinnati. I'm just saying that it fits all his criteria perfectly. If OP only wants to live around white people then I guess he should move to New Hampshire or Connecticut or something.

High 80s and 90% humidity is very hot. He said he didn't want hot. Stop pushing your shithole nigger-filled childhood city; nobody recommends a place like that unless they grew up there and have an unreasonable attachment to it.

liberals have a superiority com. and they're the ones going to china/japan and shitting them up, nd they're the ones chinese/jp people hate fucking having to talk to

conservatives in any given euro country/america are hunble to the point that they get beheaded in their homeland and then apologise. but they rarely leave. they're the ones paying for mohammed's children, they're too busy to go abroad

I don't see that as some sort of superiority com.

Don't need one, I'm going to Japan for work.
My visa is sponsored.

Me and my girlfriend are really interested in Japan. My interest has really peaked the past year and I am seriously considering spending my life now dedicating a passion for Japan. But is it really right for me?

One of the biggest things for me is safety. And America isn't safe at all. School shootings are the norm, and it is so diverse here you just don't know what people could be thinking. I feel like I just don't blend in and I just want to stay in my room all day. I don't think there is a place where I could live happily here.

Japan also has so much for me. Learning the tough language and getting out of my comfort zone. The beautiful scenery and healthy delicious looking food. The video games and manga of course. The way of life there seems beautiful besides the work. Which I can't really seem to grasp. Would I have time to do anything else as someone like an English teacher?

There is just so much to talk about. What are some thoughts about moving there?

Why is this the most frequently asked question? The real answer is, dating is allowed for cast members, so there's a lot of intermingling, but most entertainment CMs are either gay dudes or straight women. I'm one of the few straight guys, but I was a serial monogamist at the time, so I only ended up dating one fellow character performer.

Alright /trv/ I traveled all over my home country (burgerland) but the only cities I've seen abroad are Mexico City and a few UK cities. As time goes by I kinda just wanna go to London because it had everything I want, but I don't wanna waste my 20s to keep going back. So what are cities that capture the metropolitan feeling of London?

Can you elaborate on the "metropolitan feeling of London"? Just that it's goddamn huge? The cosmopolitan feel? Or the particular London-ness of it (no tall buildings, badass buildings and monuments, reasonably clean and opulent downtown)
>>
I'd compare Madrid to London in a lot of hard-to-describe respects. The royal and imperial influences which are still visible in the city are one aspect of it. And I dunno, I've just had similar experiences in both cities sitting in a comfy plaza eating kebabs and listening to buskers.

>>1395235
well similar to the London-ness you described, by metropolitan I meant the ability to pretty much find whatever you're looking for from upscale to dive drinking, like museums to a theater. If that helps

Hi r/solotravel!

I've been a lurker for quite a while, and the advice that I see here is incredible!

I'm a 25yo M about to head off for my first solo backpacking trip around Europe. I've planned a whirlwind tour, and I'm hoping to hit the high points in these places - although I recognize that there's a lot that I'll be missing out on.

I'm looking to specifically seek out food or experiences that make locations/countries unique; if I can fit in big landmarks in between, that would be awesome (avid photographer!). I love museums and history, but one day is certainly not enough to indulge in these things and I'll be saving those things for a return trip of longer duration. I would rather do interesting/unique things in the evenings than party.

I'll be visiting, in order: London for 1 full day - Paris for 1 full day - Annecy for 1 afternoon+1 morning hike - Geneva for 1 late evening+1 morning - Munich for 1 evening+1 full day - Milan for 1 afternoon+2 evenings - Lake Como for 1 afternoon - Cinque Terre for 1 afternoon hike - Florence for 1 full day+1 afternoon - Pisa for 1 morning - Amsterdam for 1 afternoon+1 morning - Bruges for 1 morning - Ghent for 1 afternoon - Brussels for 1 mid-day - London for 1 night

This spans May 6-20. For interest purposes, there is no maximum budget. Most of my accommodations and travel arrangements have already been made - so while I appreciate that I should be spending more time in each of these places, I'm stuck with this timeline!

What are your MUST NOT MISS things in these places?

Thanks in advance!

Legoland Dubai

The first is actually the best theme park in the Middle East. It's funny, because these places would sell tickets like crazy if they were in a Western country, but in every picture I see of these places, they're deserted. Western-style entertainment must be considered haram, apparently.

Provided you can get around, there's a ton of shopping options if that's your thing. If you want to stick to public transportation I'd definitely hit up the Museum District and take the Metrorail to Downtown for a pretty decent night life. The Heights (also accessible by rail) has good bike trails, food, and shopping too.

I work in the MedCenter and can always find something to get into during summer and winter.
