I'm FORCED to work as an overnight security guard for two years at a time before I can go overseas for my six months sabbaticals. How do I deal with the misery of being back in my home country?

Before you grumble, this IS LITERALLY THE ONLY WAY I can do this, NOTHING ELSE is possible. DON'T tell me to do something else. This is my life.

Fair enough, but Southeast Asians are monkeys, so you're essentially trading one primate for another.

I just got back from Seattle and had my worst travel experience ever. What a miserable place. Dirty, ugly, and extremely dangerous. On my first day, I went to Pike Place and saw a crackhead taking a dump in the middle of the street. Drug users shouting and threatening people in broad daylight, and the population just walks around as if nothing is happening. I'm Brazilian and, despite agreeing that Brazil is a cursed country, I can assure you that a lot of what happens in Seattle doesn't even happen in Brazil.

Every business in the city was keen on displaying LGTV++++++ and BLM flags everywhere, and everything there seems to be wrong and bad. A $20 pizza costs literally double because of some stupid regulation to pay more to delivery drivers. Not only that, I also saw
a bunch of people eating French fries every single single morning (eating fried food in the morning should be a crime).

What really scared me was the number of leftist freaks roaming the streets. Combine that with black people, crackheads, and homeless people, and you have the worst city on the planet. I say with absolute certainty: I would have preferred to go sightseeing in Africa than in this sewer called Seattle. Such bad vibes.

I just discovered these Andrew Tate travel vlogs and he describes the average traveler quite well.

Maybe in another life, Tate could have given us all these takes and been an active /trv/ user but instead, he chose another path more worthwhile.

But still, I get some serious Vagrant Holiday vibes from these videos.

I walk 5-10mi every day and it’s never helped me lose even a single pound. Then I went to France, ate almost exactly the same, walked exactly the same and shed weight like crazy.

ITT: people who don't get the USA is shit for loosing weight

It's cheaper to eat out than it is to eat at home especially if you're a single male.

>morning
Spend 5 dollars to go get McDonalds buy one get one for a dollar.
>lunch
Go to Burger place or wing stop or raising canes. Spend ~10-13 dollars for decent amounts of protein to make it through the day
>supper
use coupon deal to get subway foot long loaded with veggies 8 dollars if lucky.

You're looking at 25-30 dollars a day living just to eat right in the USA if you value your time and taste. HOWEVER, go to Japan spend <1000(or like 7 dollars) yen get yummy lawsons meal made fresh just a few hours ago without tons of preservatives, yakitori stick, snack, bottle of R1, and a LARGE bottle of green tea. All without fake sugars, corn syrup, carbohydrates, GMO shit, or whatever right there.
>>
>>2664049
it's true, it's a combo for the US, but sedentary lifestyles are a huge issue, you are stuck in a shitty area with no healthy food options and you drive everywhere so it adds up and compounds. there are certainly fat people in NYC but WAY less than any area in texas etc.

Rio is decently walkable but the danger is a pretty major factor you have to consider. Most places in the zona sul (copa, ipanema, leblon,) are touristy and decently safe, just practice common sense. I lived in Flamengo/Catete for 5 months and had no issues. I would recommend taking the metro for most things if you're going out of the zona sul, and its very cheap, clean and safe too.

Taxes are much lower in Iowa and there are far fewer minorities and uppity liberals than Omaha. Omaha is just across the bridge so anything you want there is 5-10 minutes away.

Anybody know anything about chartering a boat?

I'm taking my wife to New Zealand, he sister is coming with. I thought it would be really cool to charter a boat overnight to get up the coast. But I could settle for a day trip if it's cost prohibitive.

Google is telling me anywhere from $1,000-$1,000,000, so no idea where to start.

Anybody have experience with this kind of shit?

google can tell anything but you chose up to 1 million a day as your price range to impress 2 girls, lets be real youre not gonna burn that much for a fucking boat ride. Its just a floating thing on water and then you either look at the sea or go around, get hungry and go back. They dont wanna be there for weeks. So what actually happens is youre getting dragged to a shopping mall with two girls. Guess what happens when she says hey chaaaad get me this trinket from scam mall or ill go tweet johny on is he free. You have to get it.Dont budget the boat that high, you got other expenses.
>>
>>2661175
Lol my price range is like $1,000 max. I just took a boat ride in Hawaii as a kid and now it brings back those feels every time I travel to a new place. Getting drunk on the ocean watching sea turtles and shit is my jam. I worked on a fishing boat in Scandinavia for a year, I just like boats. I took my wife on one when we were in Thailand, then again in Hawaii. Was a blast.

Also my wife grew up on welfare and thinks anything is impressive. She flinches if ketchup goes up $0.15. As for my sister in law, I'm covering her ticket because she was nice enough to pay for the VRBO.

I just want to get inebriated and look at pretty ocean things. Overnight, preferably. Having trouble finding anything.

This is the type of thing travel agencies do these days. You will save yourself a massive headache and time wasted by going through a local travel agency and telling them what you want. You will pay a bit more but you're saving time energy and being scammed.

It's exactly like the episode from Suits, season 1. Once you have it, it's basically over for you. Trash every clothes and towels and move out, seal your belongings in plastic bags, and don't open them for 15 months. I understand some anons' methods work but this is the only certain way
>>
>>2658011

avoid hostels or hotels (or airbnbs) that have wooden bunks or furniture. the bugs like to hide there. look at pictures before you book. metal is good, plastic is good. wood and upholstery is not good. the more furniture, the more chances you have of bugs.

keep your luggage and belongings inside a large garbage at all times, sealed and ideally off the floor and away from cabinets and the such.

i've been to dozens of countries including many shitholes and managed to avoid bringing home any bugs by being careful.
>>
>>2661619
Keep your belongings in the bathtub/shower, they hate tiled and non porous surfaces, and bag up your sleeping clothes. When you come home throw your luggage in the dryer for 30 mins and the used clothing in another dryer for 40-60 mins (then wash hot, dry for 60)

DE is the old meta, look up Cimexa on Amazon and use it with a dusting bulb so you're not getting it everywhere. A light dusting is what you need, they avoid heavy dustings. DE kills in 72 hours vs Cimexa (Silica Aerogel Dust) in 24 hours. If you want a insecticide Crossfire is really good too.

And you can get them from planes, common areas at work, public transit, even neighbors if you live in a apartment. The only thing that works other than heat is aprehend treatment (fungal) and that's not as common. Most exterminators are fucking lazy and they pick up insecticide resistance rather quick.

I unironically had this. I thought I somehow picked up scabies since I do a lot of urbex/demo for work.

be aware that the quality of medical care in malaysia is hugely variable
stay away from clinics where the medical staff were just trained locally or where the staff is just malays. also steer clear of any government run place.
look out for private places where the staff is mainly chinese and qualified abroad or did their specialist training in the uk/usa/europe/australia. as a foreigner those are the places you are most likely to use anyway. i recommend sunway medical centre in subang jaya
be aware that good quality treatment is correspondingly expensive
also be aware that every doctor you see will have lied, cheated and possibly bribed their way to get to their position
