/trv/ I'm in Sapporo for the next few days. I'm not far from the city with a bit of cash to burn. Already seen Odori park and the Autumn Festival as well as everything and I mean everything in Susukino.
My gf and I were going to hire a car and drive around but shes on her rags now and wants to sit down and be grumpy for the next week. So I'm on my own, anyone have experience for good things to do near Sapporo city? I don't mind a long train ride, I want to see mountians and forests, that stuff.
Pics from a week and a bit ago.

Sort of agree, sort of disagree. Cafe Florian, one of the oldest coffee shops in the world, is well worth visiting and shelling out 8 euros for. Another cute place worth the money in my opinion is the museum cafe in Piazza San Marco (can't recall the name, but the cafe looks out over the central piazza, and most tourists don't know about it). Great place for an aperol spritz later in the day, and astonishingly quiet compared to the busy piazza below.

Aside from that, Venice is a gorgeous, magical city. Get lost in the canals during a moonlit stroll, have lunch in the window of a tucked away restaurant, try the best risotto you'll ever eat (hint: Anthony Bourdain), check out the seemingly-infinite amount of artwork and culture the city has to offer, visit the markets, spring for a gondola ride (pricey but hey, where else are you gonna ride in a gondola under the rialto?), go mask shopping (even if it isn't Carnivale, they're gorgeous, especially the non-touristy ones), find some amazing views on top of the campanile.

Honestly, I don't know how you need a guide to enjoy Venice. It's one of my favorite places. The only sad thing is many of the locals are being pushed out, and most people you see there are either tourists or tourism workers commuting from the mainland. In a way, it's a ghost city, but that shouldn't deter you from enjoying its beauty and picturing the way it must have been 400-500 years ago.

Spend less time there and go to bologna instead. The food tourism is peak in bologna. Venice is expensive and it's a couple's city. Worth a day trip and maybe an additional day but I think your time is better spent elsewhere (e.g. Milan or bologna)

out of context but I planned to go to Venice with my then gf

is this a suicide plan? since I'm not looking to hook up or get myself in a relationship soon

>is this a suicide plan?
Why would it be? I went to Venice alone and enjoyed it very much. Granted I enjoy traveling alone in general, but if you're interested in the history and art then you'll be fine.

Cruise ship fuckwit

Anyone done the visa free 72 hour “cruise” from Helsinki? Will just so happen to be in Estonia/Finland and figure what the fuck, but I’m worried about hotel prices in SPB. The cruise/ferry’s site says you have to book hotel through them and that shit like AirBnB is strictly prohibited, but I am suspecting this is bullshit.

I'm planning a 3 week trip to Southeast Asia. My plan is to spend some time in south Vietnam around Ho Chi Ming, maybe 3-4 days in Phnom Penh (Cambodia), then finish up in Bangkok.

I am not interested in sex/hookers. I'd like to eat, drink, be a local, explore, get lost. I think it would be cool to spend some time in the country side and be outdoors, but I only speak English.

What can you tell me about these cities? Places to do, things to experience? My budget is around $4-5000. I am open to all suggestions.

Slower is surely safer. The speed limit in Vietnam is essentially whatever the vehicle can do.

I've driven in Vietnam for years and never got a scratch, although a couple close calls all from other motorcyclists shooting out blind. Still I've seen people get in accidents innumerable times, usually very low speed.

Weirdly I find big-city traffic to be by far the most relaxed / safest. It's small towns where people are truly reckless.

Honestly OP you should still do it. The reward is worth the risk. I'm making it sound really dangerous, which it can be, but as long as you use common sense and ride cautiously, you'll be okay. The freedom that your own bike gives you is immeasurably better than relying on a tour bus or taxi to get everywhere. With a bike you can truly explore and experience the better parts of the country.

>that it’s safer than Cambodia or Vietnam
Except it's not based on stats. Thailand is always in top 5 for road accidents and deaths.

I've done the north to south trip in Vietnam and I always felt more comfortable for the simple fact that theres less cars and more people on bikes. There were stretches where I never interacted with any vehicles, mainly the big stretch from Phong nha to khe san.

My bike size comment had to do more with how fast you end up going on the road. Personally most of my trip was done between 40 to 60km/hr, and really I didn't push 60 until I was out of the mountains. Going slower is obviously better if you crash, and other bikers are generally going same slow speeds.

Also to OP, sometimes you just need to live a little. I had minimal experience on bikes and never knew how to drive a manual when I decided to do this trip.

Not same Anon.
You don't need a Vietnamese license. Actually most police man are scarred to stop you, cause they don't speak English. Only exception are some tourstic Citycenters like in muy ne. They have there a scam going and stopping foreigners telling them, a Vn license is obligatory.
Legally an international license is sufficient.
You can pay an agent to get a Vn license for about 140$ or convert an us/international one into a Vietnamese.
This might help:
http://vietnamlawmagazine.vn/driver-license-for-foreigners-working-in-vietnam-6198.html
But you need at least a 3 month visa. If you want them to send the license to your honecountry you would most likely need to get the visa in advance and not one on arrival.

Realistically, you gotta ask yourself 'what can I offer to Japan?' It isn't a one-way system, if you can't provide something that the majority of Japanese cannot then you'll find it quite difficult to get a visa there, especially if you don't have a degree. Why would a country accept someone who is just gonna work in a convenience store or a McDonald's? The best way of getting there may be to figure out a career in your own country, something you really want to do and then once you've accomplished that find a way to transfer that to Japan.

My plan is to use university connections, experience and my degree to apply for job teaching International and/or Common Law at a university level.

Basically, similar to what >>1471786 said but you need more than that, you need to sell yourself.

I’m not OP but I have a similar question.

I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s in Nursing and was looking for a career change. I absolutely hate nursing and the healthcare field in America. From what I’ve researched, even with a Bachelor’s in Nursing I would be able to apply at the JET or Eikaiwa program as an ALT? I know being an ALT is shit and pays shit, but being an ALT would give me the opportunity to see if I enjoy teaching and living in Japan. I was then planning on getting my Master’s in Education and becoming a real home room teacher down there, assuming I enjoyed it.

I’m just a dumb 22yo trying to figure out what to do with my life, does this sound feasible/like a good idea?

Yeah, it's a good idea. Give it a go for a year or two. You're young and have loads of time, may as well do it now. I did it and met a lot of people in their 30s doing it- I would like to have gone earlier.

I was in Japan once when I was 19, I went to a english/japanese language exchange party and I met a women in her 40's and we started a conversation, 5 minutes later I ask if she wants to go back to my apartment(really just a room in a shared-house) and she said yes and then we go back to my apartment and fuck and kiss for a long time in my room and then I ask if she wants to stay the night(I was going to ask if she wanted to be my girlfriend the next day, I lost my virginity that night and she was my first kiss) she said no, she has to go back home, we kissed for a long time before she left, but I missed her for the rest of my trip.

heres what ive figured out tho:

if you want to start your business, work on anything worthwhile that promises financial independence in the future etc, you will have to put in the work. all the entrepreneurs ive met at least had to put in stupid working hours to become profitable. i guess youll have to pay your dues one way or another.
>>
>>1471150
>had to put in stupid working hours
Partly true, but it is also part of a basic Lutheran illusion. There is still the 80/20 rule that comes into effect for example .IE it is better to identify the 20% of the effort that brings 80% of the income, than jeopardize your health and relationships by burning 100% of your time without focus. I abhor self-help gurus but this here 1:15 hour thing is probably time well spent if you apply it.

You were in the military, which means that you were in good health--that's pretty much the shiniest silver spoon there is. If you are poor but were also too sickly to "serve" as you did that's when you know you are truly fucked. I have no sympathy for those homeless vets on the side of the road, the way this country (both red and blue) shovels bucket loads of money and opportunities onto milfags, if you get in and still can't get your shit together then you are too stupid to live and deserve to suffer.

I get what you mean but by this logic, do you move from wherever you live every two weeks?

Yea life gets boring in general i think.
The point of doing that is to basically live your life as you normally would, just in a different place...So you can pick up a bit on how a different culture lives or experience something different or whatever. Its different from traveling, in which the point is usually to do fun shit in a short amount of time.

For me when im in a completely different place the novelty usually lasts more than two weeks. How long actually depends on the people , the environment and how much it relates to your personality.

The problema and boredom you are trying to run away from all initially stem from yourself. You cannot run away from yourself no matter how hard you try. Wherever you will go, your problems and the boredom will return sooner than you think. Face your problems from within yourself, improve yourself. Psychologists/psychotherapists can help you with that if you need help and guidance.
>>
>>1472082
Yea for sure, believe me i know that from experience. Your demons will follow you anywhere you go.

I think the idea for running away though is going somewhere completely different that will change your perspective a little. I'm not saying going to africa to help feed starving children is going to cure depression but for a lot of people it would put some of their problems in perspective.

Even in a less extreme example, if you go live as a painter in Vietnam it'll show you how lucky you are if you come from a first world country. You'll see artists twice as talented, working way harder and selling their art for a fraction of the price it would be worth if they lived in NYC.
From experience i can say that living somewhere else for a while can make you a bit more grateful and change things up for you. Theres obviously a lot of factors though depending on where you go, how you go about it, etc.

Not too related to OP, but I don't wanna make a new thread.

I'm 25 years old and graduate university next December. I'll be starting a master's program in September 2020 and want to do a bit of traveling before then. Planning to visit my GF for a few months, come back to the States in March and then head toward Mexico on a motorbike. Trying to get all the way from Michigan to Panama, or maybe even farther south, depending on how long I take. I'm an experienced rider and have done touring in India, southeast Africa, Turkey, Nicaragua, etc.

Anyone have any suggestions on the best/safest border crossings? Was hoping I could do Brownsville-Reynosa, but not sure if that's a good idea. From what I can gather, it's best to spend a night on one side of the border, leave right after sunset, and then not stop until you've gotten a couple hundred kilometers away.
