>unemployed for 2 months and collecting neetbux
>applying for jobs but radio silence for most part
>start planning trip or a volunteer program
>receive very good job offer out of the blue
Fuck bros I dont know what to do. I was hoping to take advantage of my neetbux and travel for a bit but now this offer kind of throws my plans off. I was thinking maybe I could try to push the start date back but realistically I could push it only a month at best. Should I just say fuck it and reject the offer? I am 25 and I dont think I will receive a better offer than this in the current market esp with my skillsets

You should be working on building a career in your 20s. Worry about your midlife crisis once you hit your 30s with more money and experience under your belt.
>>
That's a tough one OP. Traveling while you're young is the best but you don't want to neglect your career and still be a broke wageslave after age 30.

How much money have you got?

Why not travel for a month before you start your job? That's still a decent amount of time.
>>
>>2647756
I have a good nest egg stored in my retirement accounts and savings. I am ideally trying to delay my start date at least a month, not sure the best way to go about it. This would be my second actual job and would be very good experience, after a year I will say fuck it and travel for longer
>>
>>2647848
Take the job with the standard start date. You're risking losing this job as I'm sure a 25 year old doesn't have an irreplaceable skillset. Understand you're risking your nest egg in a spiraling economy. Quit next year and travel for longer.

> Do not go anywhere in Latin America without pictures of your family, and when family is brought up (which it will be almost immediately in the conversation), use it as an opportunity to bring out the photographs.

Do you bring family photos with you on your travels? I would be beyond uncomfortable with this.

To add to these brilliant insights, make sure never to allow a Latin American to see your money or credit card, as they will then rob you. You must obtain food and drink by importing it to your AirBnB directly. Do not wear shoes valued at over $5 outside your hotel room as this is pretty much an invitation to beheading and rape, in that order. Wear blackface at all times to avoid racial animosity: you must be black from head to toe. Shoe polish works well for this. To avoid revealing your lack of Spanish fluency, pretend to be mentally retarded and respond entirely in grunts, rather than in bad Spanish. Keep a bread knife in your waistband at all times to defend your t-shirt from cannibals.

In Palermo, I really like the arancine at Recupero and Bar Touring (Mondello beach). Stancampiano too has good ice cream. Zangaloro makes hamburgers and now has opened a poke place. Two places with a history are Antica Focacceria S. Francesco and Nino u' Ballerino (he's got a bar near the tribunal and a kiosk near Porta Nuova).
For actual restaurants, pick one of the many as you stroll through Via Maqueda in the historical city center or the town part of Mondello. I recently went to a down to earth place called Antica Gastronomia Palumbo, which had cheap prices and abundant portions of pasta, though it's a little more out of the way compared to the other spots. La Braciera in Villa Lampedusa has good pizzas and a nice location.

For sure! Between different sites and word of mouth I'm building a list of possible places. But it's always interesting, imo, to take one persons recommendation vs. a aggregate site. Usually it works out, if not - oh well.

I just came back from my visit to Charleston SC and was blown away. 80% white, very nice and well mannered people, amazing Latin Mass at a Catholic Church, food has small portions but good, nice, beaches.
Do you guys think this is a good place to move to, I am a leaf from Cuckada.

Northern Norway is great. Almost anywhere you go you will find beautiful or challenging nature outside the city/town to see and hike. The people are generally more down to earth and accomodating than the south. This even goes for the bigger (by norwegian standards) cities. It takes a bit longer to travel around between places, but the payoff is nice scenery on the way. Same goes for the western part of the country.

I did a similar thing (Not this site but another) and worked at a hostel in Argentina in the offseason with a friend.

>Hostel owner tells us come down we're good to stay for free if we work a bit
>Confirms it
>We show up
>Dude says "He went on a 3 month trek to Chile and didn't tell me"
>Says he'll make us pay
>I show him messages and he begrudgedly allows it
>Literally the only other people there are a spanish girl, a brazilian girl, a chef from Buenos Aires who got fired for smoking weed on the job who knows the owner and was staying for free while getting back on track who cooks for all us
>My friend and I literally do nothing because it's the offseason (autumn) and the guy and charge let's us hike instead of work as long as we clean the dishes
>Then one day he makes us watch "The Happening" and he cries like three different times and yells when the brazilian girl interrupts the movie.
>Eventually British dude shows up and we hike with him and have a good time

I did literally no work but I imagine that place is super busy and bustling during ski season and peak summer season.

Salvadoran here.

Watch your back. Don't believe the propaganda bullshit, crime still exists, only crime that has diminished is gang to gang raiding.

Only things worth doing in El Salvador is visiting natural parks, which now are getting de-natured and becoming tourist traps. Go to the Walter Deininger nature reserve, Bicentenario natural park, La Laguna Botanical garden, Cerro de Las Pavas in Cojutepeque. Visit Cihuatan archeological ruins.

Do NOT go to bitcoin bullshit, it's an overpriced tourist trap, the beach is absolute shit, specially stay away of Majahual, it's full of gang fucker types since it's free to go there. If you want to go to a beach go somewhere in Jiquilisco, Costa del Sol or something like that.

I haven't traveled to farther places. Small towns offer nothing and you may risk running into gang areas. Some of the farther places can be inaccessible, which I hope stay that way, and visiting would require further planning which is also not readily available.

I guess Santiago de Maria can be a good place, its on a plateau surrounded by volcanoes, with a volcanic pond nearby but it's kind of inaccesible.

Lan in Jakarta, look around the city, enjoy the nightlife etc. Take train to Bandung and see nearby volcano then move on to Borobudur and Prambanan Temple. Go from there to nearby city of Yogyakarta a historic capital with lots of local culture, spend a few days there before checking out some of the remote beaches and fishing villages on the south coast of Java. Beautiful beaches, friendly locals and hardly any western tourists, unlike Bali. Then I would make my way to Surabaya and check out that area for a few days before travelling by boat and land to Bali. After Bali I would check out the neighbouring island of Lombok which is less touristy but has lots of natural beauty (picrel). Then II would go back to Bali and get a cheap flight with Citilink to Dili, East Timor. It's only a two hour flight and usually quite cheap. That way you can say you have been to this small SEA country that not many people know about and check out some of the beaches and places there. It's not very developed though and there's not a great deal to do so probably 1 or 2 nights max is enough. Then just take the return flight to Denpasar and fly towards home from there, if you are flying into Jakarta then you can fly to Jakarta via Denpasar.

You guys have really good local restaurant recs? Budget is about 235k IDR per pax - I doubt any recs are even going to be that expensive, but I don't want a sit-down restaurant that is TOO fancy, just somewhere I can take my friend that is going to seriously impress him that I know about it. I want to find something that's local, maybe a Mom and Pop shop, but has food leagues above what you'd normally find as a tourist.

I haven't been to the Carnac but the Bretons told me it really isn't that impressive - there's a story recently that the government approved moving one of the stones to make room for a hardware store. There are less dense formations everywhere else that aren't really impressive.

There's a single tall structure in Dol-de-Bretagne around some emptyish fields with St. Malo and Mont St Michel nearby. For a formation of smaller rocks that is more secluded, there's Camaret-sur-Mer with a nice marina and some historical forts/bunkers nearby.

I'd reccomend the Cairn de Barnenez (yeah, not the same) near Morlaix; it has a ok view of the Morlaix bay but theres some refugee panels that ruin the message. If you are public transportation, email the tourism office with your time to double check if you need to reserve a shuttle/bus van and remember that the drop off/return stop are NOT the same place.

If it's any thing to do with your face I recommend Korea. Those niggas got that shit locked down. I had some moles removed there and it cost me like 20 bucks. In Canada they wanted to charge me 200 (fucking lol is this country pathetic). I've done some other youthful procedures too. My gf got a botox for like 100 dollars (it included some other things though). Dental costs are 1/3 of what they are in the US. Obviously Vietnam and Thailand are even cheaper but you pay in quality. Thailand dentist's are quite subpar.

I lived in central London for quite a while, spent a lot of time in Kensington and Camden. Also spent literal months as a tourist in London back in my party days. Also travelled the world extensively and have a property just outside of London.

Also lived in Amsterdam, Vienna and Barcelona where I currently live.

London is a horrible, horrible city that I vowed never to re-visit. It’s become a city of shit, hollowed out people from rich to poor. It has no soul. No essence. It’s a commercialised glorified airport, rammed full of the world’s worst people.

As a tourist, I get the novelty, actually. In reality, it’s not a nice place to live at all and spending significant amounts of time there really displays that to me.

Personally, I wouldn’t bother. There are far nicer, more interesting places where you can spend your time.

I enjoyed it. Went in early April. I found the Tube really easy to navigate. Really easy to get to wherever you wanted to go quickly. it's definitely a walking city. Wear comfy shoes with good support. Also, all the tourist things for a first timer are very crowded. Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Elizabeth Tower, Westminster in general is mostly foreigners. Lots of French and Dutch I noticed. Everything else is just regular London. Oh...Camden Market is overrun with tourists. Forgot that part. I recommend wandering off the beaten path and exploring. London is fairly safe, and most people are so busy with their own lives that they don't give a shit about what you're up to.
>>
>>2646490
I’ve been to London many times, and unapologetically love the place, warts and all. It’s self-obsessed and money-obsessed in ways that are kind of depressing, and there is a strange blend of shiny and new and far more decrepit than you would expect from such a rich/expensive city. But it’s got some of everything, and is a great place to eat, look at old things, and listen to music.
