real traveller tee em
Alright, we're all bored and stuck inside.
Lets play a little game (i.e. measure our dicks).
How many points do you have on the RealTraveller™ map? To get a point, you need to have spent at least 24 hours in a country - layovers count, any country you've lived in counts - as long as you meet that criteria.
Spent a few hours in the Vatican but less than 24? Shit doesn't count.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
>also known as /sqt/ (Stupid Questions Thread)

For any and all of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If your question is specific to a popular destination (eg. Thailand, Japan, Germany, Italy, etc.), check to see if there's a relevant general before asking it here.

If your question is administrative in nature (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), be as specific as possible. Such information may include, but is not limited to your nationality, where you're going, any layover points, etc. These details do get missed quite often, and they sometimes can make a difference.

Studying Abroad & Relationships
My original thread on /adv/ didn't gain much traction, so I'm going to ask this here. Is it worthwhile to pursue a long-term relationship while studying abroad? I am an International Business major, and it will not be the only reason I'm studying abroad. I intend on going abroad for a year, and I'm already aware that an LDR would be necessary to keep the relationship going after returning to my home country. Language/cultural fluency and commitment to my host country (it's Japan, go figure) are other things I understand as well.

It's going to be more difficult than a long-term relationship domestically, but I know that the end result would be much more fulfilling and enjoyable to me personally. Any insights and experiences are greatly appreciated.

Malta/Sicily question
I plan to visit Malta sometime after this covid crap settles down so I have a question regarding the Sicily daytrips from Malta. All I can find for ferry day trips from Malta to Sicily is the Mt Etna/Taormina combo. Two areas that I'm really not interested in seeing.

They just seem like tourist traps to me compared to the rest of Sicily idk. And I doubt you'd even have time to do or see anything considering how long the bus ride there, and back, is.

I'd much rather spend the day in Syracuse/Ortigia but I cant find anything about daytrips to Syracuse. Is the mt etna excursion also a tour? Cant I just dip out and find my own transportation to Syracuse after the ferry docks in Pozzallo? Or is that not allowed? Very specific question, I know, but any help at all would be appreciated. Maybe theres an excursion to Syracuse from Malta that I dont know about or something?

50 reasons why you shouldn't visit Canada
1. Canada has it's own China town (many, in fact). A laughing Chinese man will cough on your face and give you free Corona virus.

2. If you're going to order a sandwhich from Subway in Toronto, an Indian with a thick Indian accent will make your subwich and you'll find his arm hair IN your tuna sandwhich.

3. If you visit Mcdonalds in Toronto, a fat black woman will serve you. She may or may not have a mustache.

4. The prime minister is a homosexual. You know that he does more than just "take pictures" during the gay parade.

5. It's shit weather for 6 months out of the year. Imagine walking outside with snow blowing into your face and dark skies.

I have been to over 40 countries and all of the world's continents except Antarctica and I can easily say that the 3 days I spent in North Korea have been the most interesting travel experience out of all of them. Nothing else even compares. It is such an intense experience, where every moment will be memorable. I wish I had recorded more or maybe written down more stuff because there was so much I wanted to remember. It is simply surreal and one of the most unique countries in the world. I have an urge to go back on a longer visit.

If you are on the fence of going once things calm down, just do it. You won't regret it. Do ask questions if you have any.

Japan General - Corona-chan edition
FAQ (aka shit you should stop asking)*
>Where should I stay in Tokyo?
Anywhere on the JR Yamanote loop line.
>Is Hiroshima+Miyajima worth it as a day trip from Osaka/Kyoto?
Not really, it's too rushed and you should probably just stay the night there.
>Is Miyajima worth visiting when the floating torii gate is under construction?
Yes, it's still a great place to visit.
>"Dude what should I see in ________?"
Solid general guides - sights, sample itineraries, pre-travel considerations, etc
/JPG/anon put together an autistic supermap of sights, restaurants, and shopping. Go nuts.

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution. If you're coming to Japan solely for prostitutes you should probably consider a different country like China or Singapore.
What is available can generally be found in the following links

*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¥ (approximately a Tokyo-Kyoto round-trip bullet train trip)
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

ITT: I was going to spend one semester studying abroad in Argentina from this September to next Frebruary and I am so clueless about what I should do now in this situation.

I'm a 21 yo guy from Barcelona and as I said above, I was planning to spend 6 months in Buenos Aires the next academic year. Regardless of the current situation, my University is feeling positive that there will be no problem with our international stays so I will be delivering all the necessary documents required and continue with the procedures and let's see if I am finally able to go.

My worries are not about that, though. Being allowed to go or not is completely out of my control. But, in the hypothetical situation that I am allowed to go... would I be safe in a country like Argentina taking into account how poverty will rise in that country and how criminality was already a problem even before all this started?

Some members of my family pointed that out to me and I was wondering if any of you knows that country well to give me some advice on this or any information that could be helpful. For additional information: If I was going there, I'd make sure to live in a safe area in the center of the city but still after this situation we are living, I really don't know if it's sensible to go although I was so excited about it before all this.

Thanks in advance!

living in taipei?
any anons here that have lived in taipei? interested in spending an extended period of time there, either as an exchange student during uni or after uni (i'm at male at my first year of uni now if that matters). taipei seems like a really interesting city based off of what i've found out, not too big like tokyo but not bland or stressful like seoul either. love how it feels like a combination tokyo, hong kong and more tropical summery places.

some questions for you:

- what's befriending/dating taiwanese people for a foreigner like? can you go to social events like gigs/etc and strike up conversations with people that eventually blossom into friendships? would it be possible for me to get into a healthy LTR with a woman i met here? proportion of women who prefer hookups vs women who want relationships?
- can foreigners get jobs doing part time jobs like working retail? or is teaching english the only way of making money without going down the 'works at an international company's taipei branch' route? my aim in life is to eventually make it as an independent artist/musician so i'm looking at how i can most effectively maximise my free time so that i can work on my craft
-is taipei as cheap as people say it is?
- what is taipei like concerning unique/quirky shops (independent bookstores/thrift shops/record stores), cultural attractions like museums/galleries and cool nightlife stuff?
-what's the underground arts/music/culture scene like? any interesting acts that i should keep an eye out for? are people pushing their craft or just reproducing established styles? i like hardcore punk/metal, hip hop and experimental electronic/noise music if that helps.
-a few years back a bunch of companies were caught using gutter oil and plastic in food production. does that shit still happen or has that been cut out?

thanks anons! feel free to share miscellaneous anecdotes that don't relate to my main questions, i always enjoy learning random shit.

I've flown shit loads of times in my life, mainly to New Zealand, and the last time I went to took 5 diazepam and 3 lorazepam (and alcohol) on the way out and 3+3 on the way back. Since then I've done a few flights n taken one or two Diaz the whole flight. I still fucking hate flying and I need something to knock my ass out so I can get back to the UK. Back story: went traveling through Sri Lanka and India, I didn't sort my head out before I went and had mental break downs when away and my gf dumped me. Now I'm with my expat mother in SK.

Basically, is there anywhere I can go? I just need to leave, I don't care where it is, what the weather is like, I just need to move again, cause with this virus its back to fapping 24/7 and playing video games.

Are ANY countries accepting US citizens, and if so, whats a good place to look for this information.

Also, I see some government sites things like: banning "non-essential" or "recreational travel" travel. Could I just lie at customs and say I'm here to buy a house or I've got several interviews lined up or something?

>dad's dead
>need to travel again
>US citizen
>willing to go LITERALLY anywhere thats no stupid cold (ideally vietnam, mexico, philippines, brazil)
>is it physically possible?

Switzerland travel advice(on budget)
I am thinking of going to Switzerland maybe by summer if the situation allows it, otherwise I'd go there this coming winter.
I have a few questions:
>what activities are there other than admiring the scenery, tasting some of the diverse cuisine there, hiking, skiing(in winter) and going to shooting range? Anything you would recommend in particular?
>what can I actually do in just 4-5 days there?
>where can I rent a car for a reasonable price?
>is AirBnb my only option for budget accommodation?

I haven't really planned any budget yet. It could range from as low as €500 up to €1300

I’ve been living at my parents house for the past 2 months and my father watches green acres every night, as he did when I was a child. I never cared for it as a kid but now it’s making me long for a submissive, blonde, Eastern European wife.

The problem is though I’m a Midwest hillbilly, and I’m broke. Theoretically I could start gearing my life towards this right now and have money and be settled down by age 35, I’m almost 28 rn.

Has anyone ever done this or have any advice on how to go about this? Pic related. American women and culture is trash.

Weird roadside cave 1 of 2
Hey /trv/

I found this weird little cave entrance at the base of a rockwall off the interstate road near my home. I pass by it often after giving my brither a ride to work and was always curious. I noticed someone had stacked rocks in the entrance and then one day it looked like there were even figures as well. I finally went to look at it today and the stack was still there, along with a much larger rock sitting at the back, possibly blocking further access. The figures I saw were actually a nativity scene someone left by the stack of rocks. The figure of Joseph had fallen over so I set him back up where I assumed he was originally sitting, just to be nice. What do you make of this, /trv/?

Countries still open for visa runs?
Many of us are living outside our home countries on tourist visas. As surrounding countries close their borders or impose mandatory quarantines, our options for doing visa runs are getting shorter.

What countries in your region are still accepting tourists? Preferably ones that don't impose quarantines.

I'll start: Cambodia is still open and doesn't impose mandatory quarantines. You can fly into Cambodia and fly back out. It's land borders with Thailand and Vietnam are periodically opening and closing (and Thailand and Vietnam are now restricting tourists and imposing quarantines).

Travel Bangs
How many different nationalities have you hooked up with? What's your rarest flag? How do you determine which flag you took for mixed nationalities? What's the "country that got away"?

25 here. Saudi or Mauritania is my rarest flag. Didn't pick up any Swedish chicks in Sweden, unfortunately. They're incredibly sexy but our personalities just clash because they don't pick up on sarcasm or humor at all. Also they get way too drunk to the point of making me feel uncomfortable just talking to them.

Hi there.

Short story.
I want to go to the Uk for about 2.5 months when this outbreak is over.A week or maybe two will be vacation time.

I will be working remotly of my laptop.

I plan on staying in London for maybe 3 weeks and cover the country in rest of the period.

I plan on two weeks in Scotland, two weeks in ireland.

I would also like to stay a week or two somwhere in central England.

And here is where the trouble starts.

How in the world do I choose?
Durham, Liverpool, Manchester, York...

Its just too much.

I'm not really that much of a history buff and not really super into arts or anything else.

I just want a cool city with an atmosphere to explore.

I am travelling from Russia and plan on staying in an airbnb room if that matters.

What do you do while driving by yourself on a long ass road trip? l work one of those "essential" jobs but my company isn't allowing air travel right now. So tomorrow l need to start a 1400 mile drive to start work on Sunday.
Prior to this l think the longest single drive l've been on was from Dallas to Amarillo (370 miles). l'm afraid l might actually lose my mind driving 11 hours a day for two days straight.

I don’t care if it’s a trash job making $12 an hour. I need SOMETHING I can do remotely. Data entry, selling dick pics, I don’t care.

Someone give me something. Making $12 per hour remotely can’t be this hard. I’m refuse to stay in my conservative boomer town. It’s retreat to SEA in the future or hang myself. Help an idiot out here. (Not actually an idiot. Can do a lot of jobs.)

Anyone ever visit NZ? I went thinking it'd be some paradise after having visited twice before. The third time was my working holiday visa. And, it severly disspointed.

I'm not trying to sour the replies so don't let this prime you negatively. It's just that the people seemed... off?? The culture was blander than white bread, and no one had a personality? Shit. That sounds depressing.

Anyways, the country is actually beautiful. What were your experiences there?

Can we agree the corona virus did something actually good? Olympics are postponed, hopefully canned completely, for Japan. I can actually fucking see Japan without being ruined by westerners who don't even have the courtesy to get an N1 before visiting.

Hopefully otaku(that's anime culture) will survive a bit longer so flights can open back up enough for me to go in the fall when it's not above 20c.
