Living in Germany?

30yo boomer bernd here.
its the best place to live, period. there might be some few exclusive places actually a little better but these are not to choose for most ppl. if youre looking for a stable, safe and pleasant life on high living standards and endless opportunities, germany is the place to go to - regardless your social class or status.
also the refugee meme is heavily exaggerated. yes, there are some cases of aryan qts getting gangraped by brown ppl recently but its still way better than anywhere else in the world. ofc politics and society is cucked beyond belief but this really shouldnt be an issue.

also living in germany is fucking boring, gonna gtfo to some 3rd world shithole for jokes and entertainment as soon as ive saved up enough to quit the grind once and for all.

I mean, you're on /trv/ so there's probably a lot of those types here.

The only reason I dislike them is because I see through their bullshit. Maybe it's just me being cynical, but I think travelling has become the hip thing for millennials to do. If Facebook and Instagram weren't around to brag about their adventures on, most of them wouldn't give half a shit about travelling.

It's gotten to the point that now I tend to keep my travels to myself as a way to disassociate myself from those people. I also hide my plans for future travels, because there seems to be this weird phenomenon that if I speak of a place I want to go, suddenly everybody else in the world wants to go there too.

She is your average German world citizen right there. For some reason (though this is purely subjective) it seems that exactly Germans are the biggest meme traveller group, probably has to do something with the fact that their culture for some reason doesn't allow for own personality, so Germans try to escape NPC life by becoming nomad NPCs

I went travelling for the first time aged 33. Admittedly I'm a loser and was trying to simultaneously step out of my comfort zone and "find myself" whilst simply running away from responsibility.

Whilst I don't regret the decision to spend 2 months travelling SE Asia at all and whilst the experience did reveal things to myself about myself (mainly bad stuff that needs fixing), I still can't help but feel looking back now that there is something ultimately desperate and hollow about the experience of backpacking.

Maybe if I'd done it when I was younger I would've been naive enough to just enjoy it for what it is and not think too deeply about any greater meaning it may have for my life in general. But then I'm an introspective fucker. I don't believe you can ever "find" yourself travelling or through any other escapist pursuit. The experience is ultimately transient and primarily the reserve of lucky Westerners with money and time to spare. Quite often the reality of backpacking is often mundane boredom and/or loneliness. At least it was for me. Of course, there are truly great moments too. But too many people read travel blogs and watch stupid cliched GoPro videos on Youtube and expect travelling to be some non-stop, life changing adventure. It's not. It's just simple tourism at the end of the day, an extended holiday.

tl;dr - it is what it is

Anyone else here travel frequently for work?
I travel abroad every week more often than not, sometimes two times a week, sometimes three. Quite often there and back in a day. Usually within Europe but maybe twice a year long haul to China or the USA for a couple of nights.

Been doing this for about a year now and the novelty of it all is beginning to wear thin, even flying business 99 per cent of the time. It's especially annoying when it clips the end of my weekend short because I'm either flying out Sunday night, or first thing Monday morning and I have to stay at Heathrow on Sunday or go to bed extremely early.

Any other anons? How do you deal with the constant back and forth on planes?

It wasn't until I started travelling in Europe in 2015, Asia in 2016, and South America in 2017 did I realize how mind controlled and full of fear everyone in the USA is. Coming back to the USA now makes me feel like I'm in a foreign country and I don't feel at home. Everyone I come across in America is in a anxiety-prone state, as if in constant fear of their lives and everyone around them.

Any other Americans who've traveled out of the country have the same experience of realizing all the fear propaganda by the American media to prevent Americans from leaving the plantation and seeing the rest of the world through their own eyes?

Leave American soil as soon as you can. Your brain will be re-wired and you will see things much more clearly!

Downtown LA is literally right next to skid row, aka a literal homeless town in the middle of Los angeles.

There's a big glamour that surrounds LA and hollywood when in reality outside of the uber wealthy areas it's a pretty shitty, smelly, disgusting city.

I lived there for 3 and a half years helping with my family business.

I don't even know the point you're trying to make, most people aren't aware just how dirty and bad LA can be. Maine has one of the lowest crime rates in the country btw, those scary white people.

So I'm planning a solo trip to Thailand and I'm definitely visit Siem Reap as well, obviously to see Angkor.

I was thinking of staying s couple more days in Cambodia to visit Phnom Penh, but I'm not sure if it will be worth it. I've read that it's a shithole, but I also like visiting places which suck, just to see how people live in different parts of the world.

So, should I stay longer in Cambodia or should I just get the fuck out of there once I've seen Angkor and go back to Thailand?

What about bottled water from the supermarkets? I guess it should be ok, but I've read that in some other places like India even the bottled water could poison you.

>food poisoning
There are like a thousand western restaurants. They are hit and miss affairs, and most of them are safe, until they aren't.. But if you have visited some of the kitchens at the tourist ghetto of street 172, you do realise how you can get sick easily. The fairly well known Blue Dolphin has poisoned me twice for example. Stick to very popular places at Riverside, in malls, or places that are foreigner owned (Brooklyn Pizza, Lonestar) if you want to stay 100% safe. If you want a decent sub, try pic related on street 172. Tightly run by a woman that has done catering for US Army for a very long time. 100% safe.

Spent one night in Phnom Penh en route to Sihanoukville. It seemed like an exciting yet sketchy place. The hostel had signs up warning people not to go out at night in case you get robbed so I pussied out and spent my solitary night in the capital in a dorm.

I did LA to South grand canyon rim, stopping at:
Calico "tourist trap" ghost town, Vegas, Valley of Fire NP, St.George UT, Zion NP, Duck creek UT, Page AZ.
Page AZ is full of metheads at night, which was quite part of the experience.
Utah is awesome, going from desert to high mountain feel in a matter of miles.
Would totally recommend, if you don't care for LA (which I found to be a shithole as stated in >>1481066 , just land in Vegas or South lake city.
Also I would go further East and maybe get back to EU from Atlanta

my Brother is still in college and wants to take a trip to Central Asia for Spring break. Me mum says that she’s not letting him go anywhere with a “-Stan” in it by himself, so I volunteered to go with him.
The question still stands though, are these places safe enough for white Americans to travel to, or should I convince him to go somewhere else?

Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan would be the least safe, but even they should be fine.

Really, all the main historic (Silk Road) sights to see are in Uzbekistan. And they are well worth seeing. . No problem with safety, just some bureaucracy to deal with. The overnight train from Tashkent to Bukhara I heartily recommend.

Tell your mom an anonymous person on the internet said they went to Kazakhstan with 3 of their girl friends, and found the place totally relaxed. People were staring here and there obviously, but it was the welcoming kind of stares. I left my scarf at some busy restaurant and a waiter ran a couple of blocks to hand it back to me, so you can imagine the pace of life.
I don't know about the rest of the stans yet, want to go to Kyrgyz land for sure.
Just tell her -stan is -land in some language.
>>
as long as stan doesnt include afghanistan for you you are good to go

no but seriously, the only reason a part of the region (pamir and border regions) are land mines (which mostly have a sign saying they are here in the area) and border skirmishes (which have died down in the last years, especially between kyrgyzstan and uzbekistan)

Don't stress out about it.

/trv/ is usually pretty laid-back. Sometimes it's hard to share experiences without taking undeserved flak, though. We've got /pol/race-baiters here as well as typical 4chan cunnies who can't do anything besides be passive-aggressive.

The pic was a little unremarkable, TBQH, but I'm sure everyone worth responding to would be more curious about wherever you're at in Africa.

Not sure how long you've been coming here. I've been using 4chan for about a decade; you have to tune out the multitude of retards and not bother engaging, unless you're just bored.

Ive been on /trv/ since I really started travelling some four years ago and really I just remember it to be more comfy but maybe thats just rose tinted glasses...

>>1480916
>I just remember it to be more comfy
I think there are more /pol/ race-bait threads than there used to be, a lot more. We've gotten better at ignoring them though so they eventually die out a bit and linger on the catalog only because of how slow the board is.

>Probably if I check the frenchanon threads now Ill see a lot more cancer than I remember
Nah, those were pretty good. Except for a few one specific idiot posting gorilla pics in China generals and a few white-god/incel/hapa-hate posters, most threads aren't invaded, the /pol/trolls make new threads with bait posts about rapefugees etc.
Frenchanon threads were pretty good, especially because there was genuine appreciation for his trekking across Eurasia and Africa and maybe a few retards posted shit but they were just drowned out by genuine admiration.
