What do you even do when you are in a hostel? I cant sleep. At all.
Girls are gossipping and laughing bed below me. Girls are typing shit on thier macbooks bed next to me. AC is at fucking 29 ffs and i dont want to go down the ladder to lower the temperature. There is this weird smell in the room. A guy just left after fucking a girl. And i am here typing this blogpost. Never realized i was an autist with virgin walk until today.

25 American male going alone to Bruges end of November for two nights. What do I do? I like food, art, and college girls.
There are several hostels, the st. Christophers seems pretty nice.
The Gronningen museum is great, they have a good collection of the Flemish primitives, also in the hospital museum you can see some works by Hans Memling.
I recommend the Jan van Eyck Plein, and the st.anne church ; a gothic church with baroque interiors
My goal is to live on every continent at some point in my life. So far I've lived in Europe, North America and Australia. My next destination is Asia.
The only difference this time will be the language barrier. I've traveled through countries whose language I didn't speak. I can easily make friends in hostels or through traveler groups on facebook and whatnot. But I've never lived in a country where I didn't speak the language and I don't know where I would start to have a normal life in one. I'm thinking about spending a year in Taiwan and would definitely take up Mandarin courses right away but what would I have to do in the beginning, I wouldn't want to spend the whole day at home alone.
How does /trv/ sustain his life?
Have you a steady job? In which area? Do you get enough vacation time off?
Just curious, am a 23 yo europoor with a 9hrs/d with 30d/y vacation and sometimes I feel I need moar... Considering asking for unpaid leaves.

Cooking man. If you can work a kitchen you can work any kitchen. I could be unemployed in my city and have a job in 2 days just from cold calling.
In a city I'm new to, assuming they can legally hire foreigners I could have a job in a week.
Also I know people all around the world who can help tip me off as to where to look.
This question is asked so often...
We have different ways of traveling and saving for it. Some of us have seasonal jobs and travel the rest of the time, some of us have jobs that involve travel, some of us go on working holidays, some of us are corpo-bitches like you and work all year for that 2-4 week vacation, some of us work for years living a simple life and then quit work to travel.
Also, something that's not really popular here for some reason is that you don't need much money to travel. It's just that you have to prioritize travel over a normal life. You can save up a bit and then hitchhike, sleep in tents or couchsurfing, eat only enough to sustain yourself, and you can travel for under $5 a day anywhere in the world really.
I recently went on an unpaid leave at my job (I can do so for up to 10 months) and went to Australia on a work-holiday visa where I worked and traveled around. It was worth it.
I'm doing an internship as a doctor for a year, 25 yo, currently 5 months in and i finish next march, i'm taking a month off in december which i intend to travel in to ethiopia and maybe djibouti, i don't get paid alot relatively to where i live (get paid like 2k usd a month), my father still helps me out because rent is almost half that money which helps me save money, after i finish my internship i might travel around asia and latin america for a number of months.
I'm ready to move. How can I land a job immidatley after finding a state?

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution.
Japan's sex industry is almost completely inaccessible to foreigners who do not speak Japanese.
What is available can generally be found in the following links
*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.
Please refer to the old thread while it's still up: >>1292337

the anxiety is real lads. The next email is supposed to let me know when to go and get my passport stamped and they haven't sent it yet.
I'm looking forward to move there. I have a very fluent spoken english as well as native in spanish, and also advanced japanese. I would like to permanently settle there, but to apply for a Visa i would need to have a job offer there first. Where is a good place to start applying? Any Kiwi willing to help? I have a degree in social comunication and 6 years of working experience.
Check out SWAP. They do NZ working holidays and can help you get a working holiday visa which you can turn into a skilled migrant one later. While you're there for your year you could apply for jobs in your field and see if you get any bites.
Venice thread. What did you like the most?
Also, is sleeping in Mestre an acceptable solution? I hate hostels, and can't find anything that doesn't cost an arm and a leg inside Venice.
You'll pay less but it will be a pain in the ass because of the public transportation, which also costs a lot. Plus full bus+ some rains that will come in this period is not a combination I would recommend
Venetian here. Yes go sleep in Mestre, Venice proper is very expensive. Bus tickets are €1,50 and you can take a bus from anywhere within the city limits and the tram with the same ticket. There are also various pass solutions if you're staying a few days.
Is it safe? What to expect? I seriously have no idea what I'm getting myself in to.
I spent 10 days there- sure its safe enough but I was advised not to do too much walking around at night time. You will most likely get stopped by police atleast once and they will go through you belongings - watch your money very very sharply !!
Thank you. I will go with a group so that should at least increase safety by a bit. I'm still nervous though because the travel advice from my government says shit like "kidnapping are common" and "violence against westerners happens regularly".. I traveled to less than perfectly safe counrties before (lived in Colombia for over a year) but still it makes me nervous to read.
How did you enjoy the country in itself overall? Any other advice or anecdotes?
They are heavily investing in promotion this year with virtually all major travel YouTubers/bloggers etc. going there. Take a look at some of their videos to get a feel for the country. Personal fav is Brandon Van Son, was there like a month ago or so
