They don't use small planes for 10 hour flights, in my experience. For me, economy on a long haul flight is a better experience than business on a domestic flight. I can actually stand without hitting my head on something.
>>
>>2660735

This is true.
>>
>>2660735
the worst is 6-8 hour flights on small planes, ie if you are travelling between Asia/Europe with a small city at one end, you will probably have to change in the middle east or something then they put you on a tiny plane to your final destination

i.e. Beijing-Edinburgh with change in Doha, the first leg is on a big 777 or something but the second leg is on a ryanair-tier 737
>>
Look up how much legroom your airline offers. If you're over like 6', that's the biggest factor in if you'll have a good flight or not.

Taking Philippine Airlines to China vs taking Anna Air for instance, it made a big difference in how comfy it was. I'd even choose a longer flight if it meant not being cramped.
>>
>>2660324
It really depends on how you prep for it. Getting the right seat and choosing the right hours can make it feel like a breeze.
I always get the aisle and emergency seat and make sure the arrival is around the morning. That way I spend the first leg of the trip watching a movie or two, then falling asleep.

If it's a direct flight, I just buy half a fifth of vodka, bring it to the toilet, gulp that shit with some sprite and sleep for 8-9 hours.

I also have a care routine where I take a few wipes, toothbrush and some mouthwash, along with spare t-shirt to the cabin so i can have a mini-shower before arrival. When everyone looks like shit, i look like a million dollar, albeit slightly hungover.

as the other anon says, it's not good idea to do anything that might lead them to mistake you for being a journalist. and the kind of photography work you're talking about is pretty much non-existent as a market. i do know of american photographers who moved to colombia and shoot weddings and real estate, but certainly not in leticia.

how old are you lad? do you think one could move and find work (not a DN or degree holder) in just normal jobs or something? You mention here being a lack of tourism for english speakers, do you think one could truly work their way into making/becoming employed in a business that caters to anglos? I have been learning Spanish for a while and always debate moving to Brazil but the Portuguese thing sort of throws me off as if I somehow don't dig on Brazil then I'm stuck with Portuguese and only like one other country where it's viable.

It’s almost as expensive to live there as Manhattan with almost none of the convenience. The T is probably the worst subway system in the U.S. and that’s saying something. It’s worse than the NYC subway, DC metro, Chicago El, and San Francisco BART.

And it’s no wonder it’s sore expensive, the city is mostly detached or semi-detached houses so for all intents and purposes you need a car. If you want to live in an apartment in a walkable area, good luck finding anything that isn’t 4k or more for a one bedroom that isn’t falling apart.

There's also just not enough to do, even the museum situation is lackluster for a city of its age and historical prominence. Boston likes to pretend it has a rivalry with New York but it’s not even in the tier below.

Its sad too, because it used to be very affoardable, and probably the best value of public transportation, things to do, cost ratio in the US. Then some medical company giant had to gentrify the place without improving any of the local infrastructure for the insane real-estate prices to make any sense.

A lot of people are willing to pay extra precisely because Boston isn’t NYC or LA. It is practically a giant college town without actually being just a college town and that’s what they want.

>Japan is a great place to visit, but a terrible place to live!
Those who've both travelled and lived in Japan, is this true? If so, why?

I visited Japan last year, I know that obviously being on vacation with no commitments is a completely different experience from living somewhere and having a job, but still, to me it seemed like a place I would be happy to work in.

>can go for a walk at night and don't have to get worried about getting robbed by a crackhead
>know that if I leave my wallet somewhere, it'll still be there when I get back
>if you live in a major city, you don't need a car, can basically get to anywhere in the country by bullet train
>japanese people are polite, pleasant to be around, and keep to themselves which is great for an autistic introvert like me

I know that Japan's working culture is extreme, but that only really applies to actual Japanese people, right? As a foreigner you won't really be expected to conform to any of the strict social rules

So what are the actual TEFL salaries like here? I know the meme of going here with no degree and a criminal record and all, but I have a Bachelor's degree, clean record, and I see they have a CELTA program there. Could I feasibly make around $2k a month? A lot of the info I'm finding says around 1k but it's either from people with just high school or from years ago.
Is it possible to just get into one of those Cambodian "international schools" and get experience there for a few years before getting a gig at a more legit one in another country? I really don't feel like continuing college for more debt and teaching in some ghetto trash school in America for experience and barely be able to pay my rent and loans, when I could just do it abroad for half the hours and lower the CoL.
>>
>>2660591

afaik the only places where you'll make something decent teaching engrish like this is korea or china (and probably japan). a poor country like cambo isn't going to give you shit for salary. you are asking basically for 10x their wages. that means you'd be making 10x what your boss makes. I don't think that's going to happen

Try Vietnam, senpai.

IT guy who just had their office shut down moving to full remote from now on(we only had an office because the lease wasn't up till next month and had to come in for the Execs). I make about 82~87k/yr and am told I can work anywhere in the 50 states so long as I am online and available per my normal time of 9am PST. Is Hawaii a big meme? It's been kind of a dream to move there and looking at apartments it's not more expensive for a studio than where I currently live on the west coast.

Looking at a 300 sqft studio is 900-1200 or so, and cooking at home I suppose I could save some money. I've traveled there a few times for a week or two each and loved it and my lease is up in July and wondering if I should look to move out there. My concern is that I might run out of shit to do and just be stuck on the island and that if work ever cut my position looking at tech jobs in Hawaii it seems like shit pickings. Has anyone lived there? I like the beach and mountains but worried that after a year of exploring the island I'll either be stuck in a situation where just rich enough to island hop but not rich enough to take long excursions to places like Japan or Asia on those cheap flights.

82-87k a year is not a lot for Oahu but it’s enough for a single guy with no kids/debt. You won’t exactly be living in luxury and you will need to make responsible choices. You won’t be taking many “long excursions” to Asia if you live in Honolulu on that salary.

I’d say just do it. Better to regret taking the chance than to regret not taking it.

Oh yeah, it’s hard to rent an apt if you arent there in person. It would be a good idea to rent an airbnb for a month to test the waters and search for an apartment. Also goes without saying but take some time off to move.

Lots of the bigger airlines will inflate their "flights only" prices on their site to encourage you to book package holiday with them. You can get around this by using their "multi-city" searches and just selecting the flights on there or by finding a third party price comparison site to book through.

I have an even better one. Get a passport, report it as lost. Get another passport. Now you have two passports. One of them being a "dummy" passport you can use to walk around with.

This helps if you're in a country where people will steal your passport. Just give them the dummy one and go use your real one.

Spain gets nicer the more you find areas British aren't willing to go because they have to actually use their braincells to use the language. I'm from England and hate going to these places and avoid them whenever necessary I'd much prefer going to some local family run Spanish place if I want somewere to eat or drink because then I won't be lining the pockets of British expats. They don't care about Spain, learning the language or history, they just want somewhere to go where it's warm so they can drink and fuck all day while turning small cities into their own little ghetto.

>You don't go to benidorm unless you're willing to spend it with the lowest of the low Brits who for some reason want it to be just like the UK when they fly over there.

I know people who were literal millioniares who used to live out there they just liked it because they had some attachment to the place even they mentioned last time I met that it's went downhill quite a lot in the past couple years.

The flyovers have a unique culture. The Amerikaner is the last citizen still holding onto the ideals of western freedom and yeoman independence. Coastal blue tribe culture is just the same as you will find in any capital city around the world. Southerner or rural redneck culture on the other hand is a remnant from the past and perhaps the last bulwark of freedom against bugpod imf nwo tyranny.

I've got two weeks in November to go somewhere, and was thinking Portugal. Despite having been around the world a bit, I've never gone to Europe. I'd just stay on the mainland between Lisbon and Porto for time, probably stop in Evora, Coimbra, and Braga too. Just interested in the food, old cities, and such. Don't care so much about beaches as its probably too cold in November.

I thought most of Sintra's natural scenery was way cooler than the palaces. The whole palace area was a massive tourist blackhole with a lot of lines to not see much. The palace tour sucked, it was too railroady and cramped. I'd advise to see more of the coast and go hiking on some trails.

I can walk in to a leaky roof, nails in the floor, and rats in the bed, but if the breakfast is good, you will get at least 2 stars.

That's totally valid. Although personally the quite room thing can be ruined by noisy neighbors at no fault of the hotel management or staff, so I typically don't factor that into my judgement.

A clean space is definitely important. Again, it all factors in, but I reserve at least one of the 5 stars for breakfast
