Flying to Australia for the first time in two years. A leg of the trip is in Sydney; a city I've never been (t. Queenslander). Which towns/suburbs should I look to be staying at? Is Bondi all it's cracked up to be?

Depends on what you're after, bondi is populated by backpackers and locals that are painfully pretentious (the price-tags will make you cry and the beach will always be full, not sure if it comes under lockout jurisdiction)

Newtown is basically the same but more stuff to do if you're poor but on the upside there's no lockout (accomodation will still bumrape you though)

Northern beaches area is nice and if you're at/near manly you have easy enough access to the city via ferry

If you want a cultural experience (read: being the only white person) and don't mind trekking to the middle of suburbia go to auburn, it's pretty rough around the edges but definitely still a cultural experience (cafe bodrum had a pretty great tasting plate of meats for around $15 iirc, though we were on a food tour so we might have gotten special treatment)

Personally i reckon you should stay somewhere further out where you'll be able to see some nature. My favourite is the blue mountains but both the south and central coast offer good beaches right next to the bush.

you really need to give more information like how long you have and what kinds of things you're into.

For what it's worth though in the pic is a rough sketch of the walk I had before my current travel and thought it was reallly nice. (didn't go to sydney tower but included incase you want to check it out)
Also china town is pretty cozy (as far as sydney goes at least) if you don't mind being harassed by waiters to eat at their restaurant. The friendship gardens are worth a peek (iirc they should be free)

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

oh also from Taronga zoo (or bradleys head amphitheatre if you have a car) you can get amazing views of the city across the water
Cheers mate, it's only for a couple of nights before I fly back to the USA. Sounds like I'll give Bondi a skip, can't stand backpackers for the most part. Are the lockout laws really that bad? Have they killed King's Cross?

Fuck the cultural experience, I haven't been in my home country for nearly two years, I want it to be as painfully Strine as it can be.

A rugby match shoukd be fun but I'd rather see the Broncs play than any Sydney team

then you should stay in manly and take the ferry in to see the city imo, also they don't have lockout (but I don't know how late places are open there anyway)

hmm lockout didn't outright kill city life but it definitely pushed a lot of it out to the periphery, of all areas i'd say kings cross has had the most venue closures. All that being said though i haven't been a club rat since the laws were brought in so I can only give impressions

as for rugby Manly would also be kinda convenient, the ferry will get you direct to homebush or a short ride from circular quay will get you to moore park (if they play rugby there honestly idk).

Im thinking of going to the Ukraine to see Chernobyl and the Odessa catacombs. What's the safest and most efficient way to get from Kiev to Odessa? Preferably cost friendly.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Is it safe? In terms of pick pocketing?
I did it by train in daytime. Completely safe and the trains are fairly nice.
What are some other cool things to see in Odessa besides the catacombs
Yes. If you're autistic about it then book a lower bunk where your bags are under you're mattress. But it doesn't matter
fly to Odessa from Kyiv to and fro, 2-hour flight.

you can do that in Italy or France for almost half the price, everything is cheaper, less groupe-tourists, better wine, cheese and food.
if you want some good chocolate, go to belgium
It's fucking expensive.
I was thinking about Switzerland myself, but I don't know if I'd be able to get a job there as paramedic.
I'm still working on my german language skills but I know they have their Swiss German and it's little different.
But as one of anon said, maybe Austria will be better.

I'm going to Montreal one week from now for the first few days of my spring break and was wondering how the nightlife is. Also, is there anything we should know that is specific to Montreal? (That we can't google?)
Do you have advice on particular hostels or pub crawls (I only saw one pub crawl).

Thank you in advance.
22 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Regarding nightlife, I've seen good shows at Foufounes Eléctriques, on St. Catherine St; bar with live music and DJs rather than big dance club. Several good bars and a lot of cheap and cheerful restaurants on that street as well; gets a lot of Francophone students (Anglophone students are more concentrated on Crescent, I think, or whichever strip runs close to McGill).

Alongside poutine, the city has a very good reputation for its local takes on Askhenazi Jewish food-- alongside their very good and very distinctive variety of bagel, the smoked meat (a cousin to pastrami) is good if you like eating animals.

Other than that, know that it is a predominantly French-speaking city outside of a few mostly anglophone neighborhoods (including Mile End, the areas around the Anglo university campuses, and others I'm not familiar with). All young people can also speak English, generally close enough to fluently, but they prefer to use French and will open in it. So if you don't know any French be prepared to hear waitresses asking you what you want to drink in guttural gobbledegook until you make them switch to anglais. Older people and working class people will sometimes be monolingual in French. But they seemed nicer about my terrible pidgin French than the French did.
I've added this stuff to the list! I don't speak any French beyond saying "how are you" and "hello".

I've heard that French-Canadians don't like it when tourists come to their city and only speak English. Is this something we should anticipate?

Also is tipping a thing in Canada the way it is in the US?
I think the language would only be an issue if you're going to take the bus somewhere. That's the only place where I've heard anglos having trouble. In general, if you stick to touristic areas, you'll have no issue at all. As a side note, I think most people have issues with those who live/study in Montreal yet speak no French. Tourists are given a free pass most of the time.

As for the tipping, basically you're expected to pay around the same amount as the taxes (roughly 15%). Most waiters will go out of their way to let you know if they feel you haven't paid enough. This includes all restaurants and all bars. Fast food might be an exception though.
Im A2 French speaking. When I was in Geneva I would get spoken to in English after attempting to speak French. Are French Canadians better about this?
>I've heard that French-Canadians don't like it when tourists come to their city and only speak English. Is this something we should anticipate?
Not in Montreal, no. Anywhere with a significant English population, close to an English area, or very touristy will not care if you speak English. This is only really a problem if you go to more rural areas, and even then it's not very likely to be a big deal, it used to be more but times have changed and people get offended about it much less. They might like it if you try some French, but they won't be pissed if you don't, and you should be able to get around with English pretty much everywhere except occasional taxis. For tipping definitely tip any waiter, taxi driver, or food delivery person. 15% is the standard, if you tip less than 10% you'll at best get a really dirty look. I accidentally forgot to bring enough money for a decent tip once and a waiter straight up told me to go fuck myself. That's not a common thing, but just tip anyway for sure. No need to tip in like McDonalds or Subway, big chain fast food restaurants usually don't expect it.

Depends on the situation. A waiter will probably just speak French, but if you're trying to have an actual conversation they might just prefer English. A lot of people speak good English and are just trying to make things easier, so if they see you're struggling they won't just keep going in French.

I'm going on a 2 month backpacking trip to Colombia from April until June.
The first 3 weeks I will stay in Medellin and follow a intensive Spanish course.

Now what are some places to get good but cheap food in that city?
>missing Boyacá-Santander


>Coke is very pure so be careful not to overdose

not necessarily. a lot of dealers mix it ("rebajar") with other shit.

>Don't use street hookers, they have AIDS. Go to a proper strip club and use a condom.

I'm Colombian. I've fugged prostitutes for over a decade, never caught anything. Prostitutes inside the red light district, be it street or club hookers, get checked constantly by health authorities. At least in Bogota, where I go.

AIDS has a low prevalence in Colombia as in pretty much all of the Americas

Aren't there some native markets that do wood carving in places? Never been to one so I can't know for sure, but I've heard they were cool. I've also seen a pretty nice small glass-blowing store before which was selling some beautiful stuff at pretty decent prices, so that certainly counts.
>I've also seen a pretty nice small glass-blowing store
Where and when? Only one I've seen was selling cheap shit made in China.
Somewhere around Sun Moon Lake, around 2 years ago. Can't remember the exact location but it was authentically hand-blown.
Has anyone here done much overnight camping around the island? There are so many national parks around the island I was hoping I'd be able to do overnight camping trips at them. Seems like a great way to spend the weekend.

Does anyone here have any experience with IAD and snow?

>flight leaving wednesday morning at 1125 to DEL
>snow supposed to start lightly falling around 1am
>total accumulation for the day is going to be 1-3 inches

What are the chances my shit gets canceled or significantly delayed? I have a connecting flight with another carrier and my layover is currently 5 hours. I am estimating I will need 2-3 hours to clear immigration and check through domestic security to catch my next flight.
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I’m driving to IAD. Generally speaking this late in the year snow is pretty rare for IAD. I had read somewhere online that generally if there is limited slots for departures then they are normally assigned to the larger planes rather than small planes like an MD80.
Excuse me, your OP had me thinking IAD was where the connection was. If that's the case, I think you'll be fine unless the flight is outright cancelled.
Unless the airport is fucking closed down with everything cancelled, airports do everything they can to get intercontinental flights out close to on time.
Was your flight cancelled?
Nah it was “on time” ended up sitting on the runway for 2 hours waiting to de-ice. It killed my nerves but I was able to catch my next flight in Delhi with about an hour to spare.

I must say the air India plane looked shitty and the In-flight entertainment sucked but I’ve never had so much leg room on an international flight before. Also the food was great.

...I took a group vacation to Iceland in late winter (early March) and it still managed to be an incredible, unforgettable time.

Shout-out to the idiot who replied when I posted prior to the trip saying, "have fun eating fast food and staying in hotels."
Joke's on you, fuckwit: There are no chains in Iceland besides Domino's, Subway, and KFC; none of which I hit up because I was too busy eating delicious local cuisine and drinking Euro beers the whole time...

Stayed in hostels, a hotel, a cabin, and even an AirBnB on a horse farm in the country's northeast.

YES, it is expensive: everything is about 1.5x to 2x more expensive than in the states, or more depending on its rarity.
I had a great experience in the late winter, but if I go back (probably will) or tell other people about the place, I talk about returning in the late summer to experience the other, more temperate and less-hardcore extremes of Iceland.

Choice pics from the trip to follow. Ask me anything!!

>Shout-out to the idiot who replied when I posted prior to the trip saying, "have fun eating fast food and staying in hotels."

did you honestly keep in mind some anon disagreed with you on a chinese girl cartoon board the whole time you were in iceland to come back and post this?
no, but it was a nice aside to return to when I got back because it's satisfying to prove imbeciles wrong?
It was honestly refreshing not to see any McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, etc. but they definitely haven't entirely escaped the chain scourge. Mostly great local cuisine tho

Are there any good reasons not to move to Canada other than landscape and weather? (political, cultural or wildlife issues) Asking for a friend.
49 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Im in no position to be against it and I think Syrian immigrants are about as valuable if not more than Filipino immigrants,

sure they're uneducated by a large percentage but their kids will be(unless they send them to a fucking islamic school) and Syrians like Lebs are super entrepreneurial and outgoing people (look at the history of Levantese immigrants to Brazil and Argentina for example) they were the reason Syria and Lebanon are still the world's biggest importers of Yerba Matè.

I think their former life in a secular country (yup corner vendors sold beer openly in Syria) set them up better than my Iraqi dad to be way more open-minded to Canadian/Western culture

I think it'll end well but that faggot is just doing this as the most advanced level of virtue signalling in existence.

if only they could be less arrogant to their fellow Canadian than the people they mostly see in TV shows and the news
I suspect the purpose of this thread is not to seek genuine advice. If you actually want helpful info then you're gonna need to tell us what your "friend" does and doesn't like. You may find this hard to believe, but landscape, weather, politics, culture, and wildlife all vary across a country the size of fucking canada.

"hot women", they are women, sailors won't give a shit. Just be aware most won't have the same level of kindness for you
I’m a Navy vet myself. I know their level of kindness, I just wanted to know if any women hang out there that would make it worth visiting or if the Honch is just a bunch of hype.

San Francisco. The inequality here is staggering, and it is fucking third world filthy. I once saw a junkie passed out leaning against the side of an Aventador in the Sutter Stockton, as an indication of how fucked up the inequality in this town is. Oh, and the escalators going to the 50 year old unmaintained rapid transit system keeps breaking down because of how much human shit there are on them - no exaggeration.

Pic related. Shit like this is a daily occurrence. Living here made my political stance swing far to the right.
buffalel fag here. can confirm that the suburbs are great, but most of the city is detroit tier. you're safe in most of south buffalo and certain pockets around elmwood or hertel ave, but that's about it. i even got the wheels stolen off my car on the same street as ryan miller's townhouse (he was the sabres starting goalie at the time) which was right off of elmwood ave, supposedly the nicest neighborhood in the city.

i also lived in a shitty neighborhood in cleveland on the west side. my neighbor got his door kicked in by a swat team and arrested for selling heroin.
