Australians almost universally believe in strong borders. It's not a matter of race, we just don't want shit cunts coming into our country when it's already fucking full. That's why overstaying your visa, arriving illegally or committing a crime is a surefire way to end up in one of the internment camps either out in the desert or on some neighbouring island.
If it was just a matter of racism New Zealanders wouldn't make up the largest group in our immigration detention centres (with Brits not far behind)

I've had good experiences with CS so far. But i've only actively used it the last half year, so I don't know how it compares to how it used to be. I do know that they kinda started forcing people to pay for verification so nowadays you can only send 10 requests per week if you're not verified. Anyways I don't think bewelcome or any of the other alternatives are better (as in more efficient, they may be less greedy though). I noticed that a large part of the userbase consists of 25-35yos, so that might indicate less new/younger users are getting registered on the site.

i've had good and bad experiences with cs. surfed a couple times with cs veterans who'd been using the site for 4/5+ years and had an incredible time. They showed me around their hometown, introduced me to the local area, etc. But I also surfed with more than one male host in asia who tried to have sex with me (I'm male). If you're interested in cs, it's good too to host as well just to return the favor and get to know the other side of the coin.

I'm heading to Phuket in January with my mother and fiancee and only now I've realized I probably didn't make the best choice when it comes to the beach we'll be staying nearby. I have a booking at a hotel near Patong beach, and as I understand, it's not really a family friendly place (or old-lady friendly).

So two questions from me:
- how much of a hussle it is to travel from Patong beach to more peaceful ones?
- I think I'd like to visit nearby islands, are there any one day excursions available? How much do they cost on average?

Thanks for all the replies!

Americans rarely even go to Thailand, the majority of white people that go are usually Brit lads, Australians, Germans, and Russians when it comes to white people. Asians make up the vast majority of the tourism in Thailand but sadly most whites have no idea how to tell the difference between a South Asian Indian and an East Asian Taiwanese. Never really understood why it's so hard to tell them apart though. White people problems I guess.

I'll be flying home for Christmas from the UK to the USA and I'm taking Icelandair. I'm doing a two night stopover. Basically, I land around 3:30 the 17th and remain in Iceland until 5:00 the 19th.

What should I day with my two nights and basically two days? Should I try a Northern Lights tour one night if the Aurora forecast is looking good? Am I better off experiencing the city feel for both nights or should I go get the wild Northern Lights feel?

How about during the day? I know I wanna stay in the city because I don't have time to plan hikes and stuff. Any cool hidden gems or things you recommend?

I’m thinking of flying with Icelandair from Toronto to Paris (probably or maybe to Hannover) and thinking of staying over a few days in Iceland. This would be in July or August 2019. The problem is that I just turned 18 last week and I will probably too young to rent a car there but I still want to go there

Traveling to Paris for 4 days completely alone, apart from seeing all the touristy things (Eiffel tower, Louvre, Triumphal Arch, etc.) I need to see – I'm wondering if you guys got any hidden gems worth visiting; regardless if it's places to eat, drink, shop, see, etc.

Second mission and probably better for the locals or residents of France. I'm a kissless virgin female Swede and I plan to loose my virginity on this trip. How do I score myself a French lover or at least an equally lonely and desperate tourist? Can I just go to bar, order a drink, take a seat and hope for the best? Chances of me actually taking the step to hit on someone is slim because I'm introverted, submissive and shy. Should I try Tinder? Should I just post my hotel details on /soc/ and hope the 4chan Frenchmen come to my rescue?

Charming. This could eventually explain why OPette will not loose it to you.
Have you even read her first post?
And even if, what places you in the position where you can judge her and ultimately all women?
Knight anon said it right btw.

Not saying she will loose it to me also... she is free in her choices, but odds are she is already conditioned to this idea and even maybe desires it.
Plus, consciously, anonymously, she posted it here, chances are that it'll maybe lead her to interract with someone, get to know the person etc

How much of an effort do you make to learn the local language when traveling / living abroad?

I've lived and traveled a lot in Asia, but have never made any effort because I assume it's impossible. But I have learned (enough) Spanish and French traveling / working because they seem attainable.

>Japanese
I agree that it's difficult, but to say it's more than the other languages in the category? From every account I've heard it's easier to learn Japanese than any other East-Asian language, mostly because all sounds in Japanese are common to English (unlike Chinese). Most people say it's way easier to speak than Korean or Chinese. Perhaps if you include fluency in writing since their whole kanji system is pretty retarded, but if you just include speaking and writing with hiragana then I'm skeptical of it being the hardest.
>>
>>1333691
AFAIK (never tried to learn) the extremely limited number of sounds in Japanese, while it makes it easy to pronounce, also means there are loads and loads of homophones (which is why they maintain the use of the Chinese characters; out of context any word can have many different meanings)
>>
Interesting fact about Chinese: when Chinese children are first learning to read/write, they start with latin characters (i.e. pinyin). Only after they've gotten a handle on that do they move on to the utter inanity that is Chinese characters... which really makes you wonder why they bother with the latter at all.

The Vietnamese seem to have done fine with adapting the latin alphabet to a tonal language (even if it's a mess of diacritics, often several on the same letter)
>>
>>1333707
While I think that's kind of true, it's clearly not impossible to understand without Chinese characters since they speak it just fine without ambiguity. I know it's totally possible to use only Hiragana to write Japanese, it's just considered sort of "low class" or uneducated to do so. I think they rely on kanji mostly because of tradition, since kanji certainly have different meanings depending on context as well.
>>
I generally try to be able, at least, to ask basic questions and respond to greetings. Sometimes that leads to a deeper interest but I haven't gotten very far with that due to being lazy. About the only times I didn't really try:
>Vietnamese because oh god tones and diacritics
>Norwegian because everyone was speaking flawless English anyway

Ill be spending next semester in Ghana, and after May will have a couple months to travel. Would like to do some cross country trekking in Ghana and Togo, as well as see the voodoo market in Togo and Temple of Pythons in Benin, also would like to see Lagos since its such a major world city.

Couldn't tell you about the north island.

The South has Milford Sound, Queenstown, the Franz Josef Glacier, and Arthur's Pass.

If you're stopping in Christchurch you can hit up the Antarctic Centre, Diamond Harbor, Willowbank and Oranas Nature Reserves.
