This June, the lads and I are planning a trip to the Lychee and Dog Meat Festival (玉林荔枝狗肉节) in Yulin, China. Has anyone been before? What kind of dog meat dishes can we expect to find there? Any info is appreciated.

So, you first take a flight to Guangzhou, China
Once you get off at that airport
You wanna ask around for the Guangxi provincial bus
And it costs 20 US dollars
And it's a four-and-a-half-hour ride
And you get off at Maoming West
Just remember, Maoming West
Now, you might have to stay there a full night
Depending on the time you arrive
Because the next bus that goes to Yulin
Only runs like once a day
And you have to buy another ticket
It's about another 22 bucks
But from there, it goes straight to Yulin
Soon enough, you'll be eating some dog

What's a nice and quiet European city that I can visit for a few days just to relax? I have a bit of writing I want to get done and I'm looking for somewhere with nice weather and beautiful architecture. I was thinking of Bratislava since I've heard it's a bit of a hidden gem. Any ideas on where I can go? Preferably somewhere on the cheaper side.

So I'm a native English speaker with a BA and a CELTA straight out of college. Only problem is I'm not white. I'm often told I look like an indigenous Latino. I've been applying for jobs in Shanghai only for the past 3 weeks through the usual channels of Dave's ESL Cafe and echinacities and have only gotten one offer of 15k CNY even though I've applied directly to dozens of jobs and talked with several recruiters. Is this standard for a recent graduate with no work experience or would I get flooded with much better offers if I was the same person but had a white face?

I've been sent to Korea for a month for work and even in my off time I haven't been able to enjoy this country at all...

The nature is very nice, the gardens especially, but why is there litter absolute everywhere?
I could be walking through a trellis of the most beautiful Wisteria and find a pile of coffee cups at the bottom.
There's litter on the street, garbage bags dumped in front of buildings... It's disgusting.

The food is just... Not good.
Anything "savory" is salted to hell and covered in sauces to the point you can't taste it
Anything meant to be slightly sweet is stuffed to the brim with sugar and cream.

Convenience stores in Asian countries tend to be a little joy for me but even here it's just not as good as Japan or Singapore. No bottled cheap tea in ANY of them, snacks suck, items are just thrown about into the fridge racks...

I've got tomorrow off so I'm going on a short walk on a trail. The nature right now is really the best thing here.

As someone who's been to Korea a few times

What do you mean by this? That's a pretty big generalization here.
>No not Seoul. One of the smaller cities. There's quite a bit more nature, gardens, and trees here
This doesn't narrow anything down, not sure of many companies who will send you specifically to a small town for work only a month that isn't butted near a main city.
>There's no kpop qts here. I doubt anyone here exists between the ages 18-40.
Who might want to at least mention what town you're in, this is exceedingly rare outside some fishing villages I can 100% guarantee there is no reason a company would move someone to for a month

South Korea outside of the major cities is kind of a shithole desu.
Safer than America sure but it has a distinctly third world vibe.
Also all the young people go to Seoul so you only see old people and children in the towns.

When you see such sights, you're unable to ignore the world that is out there. We all get into such a routine that we hardly give a second though to what's across the ocean, much less what's down the street from us. And life is finite - I think traveling, in some ways, reminds us of our mortality, especially when trips are coming to an end. Everyone would love to spend life seeing these wonders and meeting new people, but nothing pushes the hard realities of life in your face more than vacation being over. You have to work. You have to maintain your responsibilities. And that's ok too - but it's tough to ignore the world waiting to be explored.

And as you get older, it's more difficult to break away from those responsibilities. I had a real opportunity to go live in another country for 3-4 years, but ultimately my family and I decided against it because the logistics were just going to be a nightmare when it came to uprooting our current life.

that is awesome anon, glad you had a good time during your travels, yes, post travel sadness is real because you realize how much fun you had on your trip and look back on it fondly, the good news is you did it and have those memories always, the best advice I can offer is start planning your next trip so you can have another great experience.

Semi nomad. How would one go about getting real work (not like WWOOFing) without the rigamarole of applications, fake interviews, and penis inspections. If anything I would prefer real interviews.
My ideal is showing up to a farm in Amish country and then working until the sun goes down.
I don’t want to take up something where the first few months i’m just “putting my time in” before i’m allowed to do something.
How did you find or build your employment that works well for you.

Farmworkers are lazy. LMFAO. What a load of crock.
Beet harvest in North Dakota is a major moneymaker every fall for all sorts of traveling folk. You work twelve hour shifts, either day shift or night shift, 7 days a week until the harvest is complete. Harvest work is definitely in my radar to top up my travel fund for another six plus months in Asia next winter. My van's gotta last the summer though...

Better to go paperless and avoid getting mail in the first place. A PO Box does NOT legally qualify as a domicile in any jurisdiction. So knock it off with the USPS shilling.
Getting an ID requires verification of your physical address in virtually every state nowadays. South Dakota is the only exception, I think. You can spend one night in a campground there and have it listed as your official domicile on your driver's license.

It's essentially a flying bus, the seats are basic, the space limited, you're nickle and dimed for extras.

If you just have a backpack with a few items and need to get from A->B they are fine.

When did it become such a dump? I remember visiting a lot in the 2000s and early 2010s and while it wasn't in it glory days it wasn't the total shithole it is now. Attracted a lot more people too.

It's hasn't really gotten better but a couple better casinos have opened. There's also more concerts there than in the past. Not saying the city has gotten better but you'll see more people going down for the weekend than in the decades prior

AC has always been a shithole, it's one of the only beaches covered in drug syringes and cig butts. it's garbage because the overflow from trenton and camden, IE the portals to hell, moves there and infests it. It's not a city so much as a boardwalk adjoined to a slum, at best it's a den of vice offering smoke-clogged entertainment for a weekend to tour buses full of retirement home boomers looking for a dopamine hit on the slot machine floor. it's vegas for people too poor to travel to vegas. no one with decent intentions would ever set foot there and at best it's a novelty to christen your passage to adulthood. for a more specific answer, it's always been shit in the same way vegas has always been shit, but the demographics are let's say on the decline with the black plague, and when trump's casinos went bankrupt it put the final nail in the coffin.

new jersey is a weird place, some parts of it are so wealthy you can't even buy a sandwich if you aren't a millionaire, and just a few miles down the highway it's a nigeria-tier slum. the nice places are highly gatekept to keep the growing refuse out, so the trash accumulates and putrefies in the low barrier to entry areas. some parts of the state the minimum house price is $2m, other parts you can buy a house for $20,000 even today. there's a reason for that. AC is just camden with casinos.
>>
>>2647984
Yeah as a Jersey fag I find myself and other zillenials going there moreso then from I gather people would 10 years ago. They’ve done a decent job with their concert venues and I see a lot more people in my age demographic than I would ten years ago when I was in high school visiting with my parents
>>2648207
North Jersey cities like Paterson and Newark are grossly exaggerated in terms of their blight, many companies and unis are headuartered in Newark and unless you are going way into inner city it’s not bad. Paterson is just beaner tier poverty and unless you venture out main and crooks street into the more melanin enriched areas you will be fine, some of the best sand food in the country is there and many adult oriented things that travel janitors don’t like can be found there too. Meanwhile places like Trenton, Camden, and AC are ireedeble hellscapes with the added misfortune of having filthynogia influence that region. The whites are on par with the joggers in certain areas of south jersey in terms of trashiness

>They’ve done a decent job with their concert venues and I see a lot more people in my age demographic than I would ten years ago when I was in high school visiting with my parents
Yeah a big thing is the price of venue fees have skyrocketed in Recent years and Casinos will straight up pay you to perform their. A lot of Concerts that would be somewhere in New Jersey and Philadelphia end up in Atlantic City.

Basically this in a nutshell, you can earn good money easily but Australia is the sort of place where you can spend it all so quickly too, a night out sets me back $200, drinking with the boys adds up quick

yeah OP keep in mind that despite the high wages in Aus, everything is a lot more expensive than wherever you live
you can save up money but you have to be strict with your spending
that doesn't mean your time there has to be boring
you can get drunk very cheaply on box wine, $10-15 for 4 litres of the stuff at most bottleshops
if you stay in hostels this is what most people do when they drink so you'll be in good company and make lots of friends

Since you are living in a shack and eating communally cooked slop, or else living in some bumfuck nowhere outback station, you'll save 90% of your net pay if you can avoid the booze and the ciggies.
