Las Vegas to Flagstaff/Sedona
Screen Shot 2020-08-07 at 1.00.38 PM
My dad and I are doing a two day trip between Sedona and back. Any suggestions on things to see along the way? We can't do a ton of hiking because of an old injury he has, but sightseeing is fine.

I'm down for anything from cheesy to serious, or food recommendations. I've been to these places before, but not in a long time.

We did it lads time to get back out there again!
Russia has begun distribution of their COVID19 vaccine first to themselves and Asian countries. Then to the EU, Middle East, South America excluding Mexico and Africa. And then finally Canada and the US. Early estimate show countries might open up by early October for Russian and residents of Asian countries. With EU, Middle East and Africa following in early 2021 then the Americas in late 2021 or 2022.

Countries will now only demand a proof of vaccination for an entry visa. Free travel will be available for countries within the vaccinated travel bubble.

subcultures and individual expression in china
xinnie the pooh
how have cliques and subcultures developed and organised themselves in mainland china? this is one that i've been thinking about as china is a similar size/shape to the usa geographically speaking, but radically different in terms of conformity/individuality and political structures.
example of what i'm on about: in western countries/japan, you have normies who are predominantly focused on consuming mainstream media, but then you have smaller defined cliques of various sizes that organise themselves around their common interest in consuming the same music/art/movies/etc., as well as people like musicians/filmmakers/visual artists/theatre actors/etc. whose identities are oriented around making things. i'm speaking about stuff like music scenes, art scenes, videogame fan communities etc.
how have these things developed in mainland china, and how does their role in chinese society differ from the role that subcultures play in western society? curious to hear from anons that have experienced life in china firsthand

Thailand General
Thailand is planning to open 5 islands for tourism on August 1. Still very little information available, but if international flights open on August 1 as scheduled, the TAT will begin allowing tourists to visit Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.

No details yet on whether they will be quarantined or need to do a medical test before arriving. The articles says tourists will not be allowed to linger in Bangkok, they must go directly to one of the islands.

As a born and raised American, I see the writing on the wall for this place and it's not pleasant. I've tossed around the idea of being an expat for a while now, and I think I'm ready to start pursuing it. I'm looking at having saved up about $100,000 by the end of next year should things go to plan, currently have $60,000 in the bank. I'm thinking Medellin, but I'm open to any English or Spanish speaking country. My requirements are:

Good weather. Being born and raised in San Diego has spoiled me, so this is a must.

My plan is to travel to the US to work as a nurse October-December to make money and visit family, and the rest of the year not working for a wage in another country. So a good USD exchange rate is a must

Easy to buy land as an expat. Am looking to buy a couple acres to raise a few cattle chickens, my goal is to be self sufficient with my food and hire a few locals and pay them well to take care of the property and be farm hands.

Culturally conservative with open sexuality. What I mean is, traditional family structures, men handle most business dealings, little to no feminist ideology. But a fun atmosphere where going to the club to get laid isn't too much of a challenge.

Any thoughts?

Thailand vs Philippines (Why do Westerners prefer Thailand)?
Thailand is Buddhist and was a pro Japanese Axis power during WW2 while Filipinos were Christians and allied with the Allied forces.

Most Westerners are from Allied Countries, yet how come Americans, British, and Australians as tourists, flock more to Thailand when only 60 years ago, Thailand wanted to exterminate Caucascians from the face of the Earth, whereas millions of Filipinos died trying to save American, Australian and British lives yet most whore-loving Westerners prefer Thailad over the Philippines.

Thailand in World War 2: Unabashed Caucascian killer and hater of America, Australia, Britain and France.

Philippines in World War 2: Dies in the millions trying to protect said Westerners.

Westerners: Lol I like Thailand better because uhmmmmm... They have great hoes!

SEA for brown tourist.
brown man from Peru here, I would like to do sex tourism in SEA, I like asian women. but all women prefer white men and Im not white. so in which cities in SEA region is a brown man more welcome?
thinking about go visit Thailand in year 2050 once the amount of whites decrease in there so I can get a better service as brown man, I have read thai prostitutes dislike brown customers.
I did a tour some years ago.
-Phillippines women are pretty but the country is dangerous and full of scammers.
-Vietnam is nice but the language is impossible.
-Thai, Lao, Cambodia, Myanmar are full of whites so as brown man Im not welcome there.
-Malaysia is good but too segregated, indian , chinese, malays.
-Singapore-Geylang is good, expensive a bit.
-Indonesia , I really enjoyed Indonesia,
-HK , pretty hooker but expensive to live.
any advice for a brown sex tourist.
I have the believe that in the future less whites will be in SEA.

/rcg/ Roller Coaster General
This is sort of a branching off of a Roller Coaster Tycoon Thread on /v/ that had a large portion of people talking about real life amusement parks and rides. I'm wanting this to be a reoccurring thread on Monday for the Roller Coaster Enthusiast of 4chan to have a place to discuss new rides and what rides they've ridden and as the name implies a roller coaster general. Some discussion topics I think would be good to start off with is, number of credits(unique rides that you've ridden), favorite ride, home park, thoughts on new coasters being added in 2020 and any plans for when parks start reopening.

Salaryman 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¥

Anyone ever live in Hawaii? Will all locals hate me?
I'm moving to Hawaii temporarily and just got roasted on a dating app by someone claiming to be indigenous because I'm a haole temporarily moving to Hawaii. I tried my best to recognize the legitimate historical grievances but also defend myself (mainly, what difference does it make in the grand scheme of things if I live there?), but it ended with me being accused of terrorism and genocide for moving to hawaii. Unfortunately I suspect the only reason she kept the conversation going and shaming me was to post an ig story complete with my full name and picture.

Obviously this is extreme, but is this indicative of the general feeling of locals towards transients in Hawaii? What am I in for? Will I have to apologize to some people for being there in the first place?

Rude restaurant owner in Greece
Me and my brother went to a restaurant here in Tinos, Greece yesterday, called Athmar, the owner of which is also the waiter and he's probably the rudest sob I've ever met in a restaurant. We sat there and decided to order a plate of kebab that costs 8 euros and share it. So he told us that "we have to buy something else too because he can't keep a table occupied for two hours with only a 10 euro bill". He also pretended to get real with us and told us that he was forced to act like this because of bills that they can't pay and stuff, like I'm supposed to give a fuck. Anyway we got the thing cause we told him we wouldn't sit for long, he apologised afterwards in a visibly fake way in order for us to not post any negative reviews and to visit again. I did post a negative review on Google which after a while he hid, but before that, he literally came and found me to the bar I went and was sitting in, and started threatening me, in detail, he told me that "if I didn't watch what I was saying he would fuck me up". So yeah, best restaurant ever. Fuck this guy

How to escape into canada on the run
About a month ago I was arrested and sent to jail. I'm 18 and looking at a felony for a bogus crime. I showed a knife to a group of people in self defense and I'm already drowning in debt from legal fees. If this goes to trial I can't afford to continue to pay my attorney and I refuse to go back to that shithole and have my life be ruined with a felony on my record. I don't have any sort of plan once I get there aside from leaving North America entirely. All I know is if it happens I need to get out of the country. How does one go about entering Canada without any sort of passport or identification? I live in Michigan if it helps I guess.

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.

Hey /trv/, long-time lurker coming from /lit/.

Starting next month, I'll be spending 90 days in Paris to work on my novel/screenplay and focus on language learning and personal development stuff. I'm flying in from Canada. Really looking forward to this time.

My friends and family are giving me shit for travelling internationally during a global pandemic, as you would expect. After much back and forth, I've boiled it down to three (3) risk considerations:

1. Moral Risk: The ethical risk of getting somebody else sick or spreading the disease abroad. I consider this negligible. There is zero evidence that I would pose a greater threat to anyone in Paris than in my current home city (Toronto). I consider any moral objections to travel to Paris void.

2. Health Risk: The risk of getting seriously sick or dying in Paris from COVID-19. I consider this to be a moot point as well. Since I don't know anyone in Paris, I'll be spending more of my time in isolation there. Albeit Paris has more daily cases than Toronto per capita, it's not a significant increase. I'm 25 years old and physically very fit. The odds of me getting COVID and actually requiring hospitalization are low to begin with, but even if I get sick I have full faith and confidence in the French medical system. Which brings me to the third, more difficult, consideration...

3. Financial Risk: The risk of getting stuck with a French hospital bill on the off-chance that I require hospitalization. Canadian travel health insurance does not cover COVID-related medical bills. This is the only legitimate objection to my travelling. However, it's an entirely personal risk that I'm willing to accept. If I have to go into debt to dig my way out of a French hospital bill, then so be it. I'm wondering if anyone might have inside knowledge on what it might cost to be treated for COVID in France as a foreign tourist.

TL;DR: What do you think it costs to be hospitalized in France for a few days?

My birthday is the next weekend after this coming. Many things are closed and there's not too much to do. I don't mind not seeing anyone on my birthday (kind of prefer it) but I want to break up the monotony of "working from home" in my apartment since mid-March.

So to do something fun I decided to book a 2 night stay at a 4.5 star hotel 10 minutes from my apartment. What are some ideas of what I can do to enjoy the day? I'll probably just get takeout and watch tv on the huge tv and enjoy nice diggs that I don't have to clean up when I'm done. The ammenities are restricted due to covid but I just like hotels and could probably kill an hour wandering a semi-empty nice hotel for a while.

Any ideas to enjoy a 2 night stay in a hotel for my bday? No hardcore drugs or hookers please.

Is there still overseas travel by ship that is widely available to the public?
Back in the late 50’s my grandfather took a boat to Europe from New York.
Could I still do something like that?
I really don’t like flying and I feel like several weeks at sea might be an interesting experience.
I know that cruises exist but most of those are just luxury tours that cost a fortune (literally, boomers just spend their life savings on them).
I want cheap and simple.
Like my grandfather had, like Italian and Irish immigrants to the US would have had.
Is that still around?

>The first German immigrants came to Brazil soon after it gained independence in 1822 from Portugal. They were recruited to work as small farmers because there were many land holdings without sufficient workers. To attract the immigrants, the Brazilian government had promised them large tracts where they could settle with their families and colonize the region. The first immigrants arrived in 1824, settling in the city of Sao Leopoldo. Over the next four decades, another 27,256 Germans were brought to Rio Grande do Sul to work as smallholders in the country.[5] By 1904, it is estimated that 50,000 Germans had settled in this state.

In Santa Catarina, most German immigrants were not brought by the Brazilian government but by private groups that promoted the immigration of Europeans to the Americas, such as the Hamburg Colonization Society. These groups created rural communities or colonies for immigrants, many of which developed into large cities, such as Blumenau and Joinville, the largest city in Santa Catarina.

Large European population. Light-eyed cuties with booties. Perfect weather. Safest part of brazil. Whitest part of brazil. Why are you retards talking about mexico when Brazil is accepting tourists from all over?

SEA Adventure
The 'Rona's got me feeling stir-crazy. Once this all blows over I want to take a big trip through SEA.

The main objective will be to travel from Hanoi to Singapore via rail, bus, or boat spending a few days, up to a week, in each major city along the way.

So far I've planned all the way up to Bangkok. I'm going to fly to Hanoi, take the Unification Railroad to Hue and then Saigon.

Then I'll take a bus to Phnom Penh and a motorboat to Siam Reap to see the temples. After that, its on to the Thai boarder to board a train to take me to Bangkok, tho its a long journey so I'd like to spend a day in a city inbetween if possible.

I haven't planned past Bangkok yet. Any advice would be extremely helpful!

Hi, Guys. I consider myself an experienced solo-traveler, but yesterday a feeling of real loneliness hit me.

But this trip has been kind of lonely, I'm not sure if it’s the mandatory masks you have to wear, but I haven’t chatted and meet as many people as I use too. People don't feel friendly, and for the first time ever, I have been rejected from restaurants for being alone.

Yesterday I was stuck in an elevator. The first thing I did was pressing the emergency button, and of course it did not work, typical Italy... Luckily, there was a number I could call, while I typed the number I noticed there was no reception on my phone.
I'm a really calm person so I did not panic, and I did not even feel lonely at this point. The next thing I tried was pulling the elevator doors apart and sticking my phone out through the doors, and I got one bar! The first person I got in touch with, just hung up, ha-ha.
After a long conversation with Italians not understanding English, they finally sent a technician. About 45 min passed.

Since we are allowed 1 meta thread, let's talk about updating the sticky /g/ and other boards have it so why not update this boards stuff with useful info and not some links that do nothing.

would suggest updating the Japan info with autism anons charts and maybe some other FAQ, making the obvious /biz/pol/ read for once

I am planning to come as an ERASMUS student to Istanbul for the upcoming semester staring in October lasting until March.

Will it be worth it? My main reasons for going there would be attending local attractions and socializing with the people.

Is this possible even though the Chinese flu is spreading? Or are major party of public life in shut down and parties forbidden?

On day trip to Dublin
So I want to go to Dublin for a one day from uk. There is a government advice to restrict your movement for a 14 days after arriving to Ireland. I bought a ticket already without checking it before and now I’m thinking what should I do. It’s not a literal quarantine but u have to fill the form and pass it to the airport staff, I’m worried that I’ll stuck on the airport for the entire day. What do u think guys? Does anybody tried to do it already? Will they ask me why I came there, do I have to have any explanation?

is london exceptionally soulless compared to other cities?
as most of you are probably aware, london has a reputation for being a soulless city where only the uber rich 1% and impoverished council housing tenants live, the lower middle classes and hip creative types (cereal cafe barcades notwithstanding) having mostly been priced out of the city, or at the very least denied the opportunity to settle within its' boundaries comfortably.
as a london resident, i can't help but agree with this sentiment to a large degree. as beautiful and stunning as it is, the city centre is basically a glorified theme park at this point where the megarich dine in fancy restaurants whilst swarthes of tourists gawk at their surroundings and get in my way whilst i'm trying to get from point a to point b. camden/shoreditch/notting hill, previously hip and cutting edge, feel too commodified (and expensive) to feel like the bastions of genuine counterculture that they have often been portrayed as. i suppose peckham/dalston/bethnal green/deptford are pretty authentic, though even then the hipster cliques that have moved into these places feel very cut and paste, indistinguishable from the former shoreditch hipsters. outer suburbs are either stabby or beautiful/close to amazing nature (some absolutely amazing parks in sw london) but boring as fuck.
what i'm particularly curious about is whether this is something that is unique to london specifically (as well as cities of a similar pedigree like nyc and paris), or whether this phenomena is something that is taking place across the globe. for reference, here are some cities that i'd potentially be interested in moving to should i choose to leave london, if it helps you guys to compare them:
nyc (not expecting here to be much better than london desu)

Tips for finding a remote AirBNB
I'm trying to find a remote airbnb anywhere in the Pacific Northwest but I'm having trouble finding something that's actually remote.
Everything has neighbors chomping at your toes or hipster brewpubs a short drive away.
Ideal would be a small, one bed cabin. Maybe a little ramshackle, cold at night, but with itchy wool blankets and a wood stove to keep you warm. The type of place where the wind howls and the cob webs replace themselves overnight.
Any suggestions for tracking down a place like this through Airbnb, or any similar website? It's not like there's a "sort by distance from civilization", or "homely but a bit dank and decrepit" filters.

How to Start Traveling?
I wanna start traveling ASAP. I live in the US and I have $12k saved up. I currently do not have a passport so that restricts me from traveling abroad, but it's not like we really can anyways? I'm still going to apply for one just so I'm able to travel when places open back up. I can still travel stateside though so I'm wondering how to go about it? I kinda wanna quit my soul-sucking job and just wing it. I've got a safety net of money. $12k probably won't last, but I wanna start living. Places I really wanna go are Alaska and Hawaii, but that might be a bit out of budget. I could always take a trip to NYC; aka the COVID collective. There are so many places to see and yet I've never been out of my home state.

Remote Work Lifestyle Ideas
I've decided to take the remote work pill. It will probably take a couple years before I can actually begin but here are my options. Any thoughts?

>live in RV and travel around US
>stay in parks and outdoors areas and stop in major cities for a bit as I pass them
>might get old living in vehicle after a while
>probably hard to get laid if you live in a vehicle

>hop around major US cities renting places month to month. new city every 1-2 months
>renting by the week is fucking expensive
>if i drive, a lot of extra driving in between cities and would have to sleep in car/tent or get hotels
>if i fly, i won't have a car while i live in that city (fine for NYC but not most cities), and car rentals are expensive

>hop around major US cities renting month to month but also bring RV so I can do shit in between cities
>higher cost and have to rent places with RV storage (limited options)
>will cost a lot

>gtfo of the US and live in cheap countries. rent places month to month and rent cars very cheap
>probably start with Latin America and eventually Africa and SEA
>not sure if i should do US first or save that for when i'm old

Now that Pakistan is being a lot more lenient on travel visas, anyone considering going? Been seeing a lot of people making food and travel videos in Pakistan and from what I've seen, people seem extremely friendly as long as you're not a woman. Saw one chick going cross country but she definitely seems like the exception.

It is cheaper than Thailand. Definitely not for coomers but seems like an adventure land if you're into the outdoors and great greasy food everywhere.

What city should I settle down in?
new york
Born in Toronto, did a CS degree at UofT. Moved to Vancouver right after grad (1 year ago) to work at Amazon/Microsoft. Currently making ~130k/year, no student loan debt, no family obligations, etc.

I've found the dating scene in Vancouver to be horrible. I lived in San Fran and New York for a few months and found the scene there to be much better, also nightlife and food were much better there as well.

Currently deciding between LA and New York.

Any thoughts? I've never been to LA, lived in New York for 1 month, and San Fran for 4 months. I think the worst part about New York for me would be the weather. Money isn't really an issue as I think switching jobs would get me a salary bump to ~180k/year. San Francisco was fun, but too many tech related things there.

Moving to Panama City
Look, we all know the USA is fucked so I'm currently compiling a list of places to fuck off to when things get too unbearable and I need to know if I should add Panama City to that list.

big city (I love big cities)
Spanish-speaking (I speak Spanish and want to move somewhere that does).
P4P is legal and regulated (I'm a coomer, what can I say?)
High average wage compared to the rest of Central America
Easy visa (work and residency visas aren't that hard to get here)
Strong economy (the Canal combined with business-friendly policies are really paying off)
Generally free (few restrictions on speech or internet)
Food (most Central American food is pretty so-so, but I know there are plenty of Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, and Italian options in the city)
Pretty women (I like Latinas, that is all)
Weather (I know people complain about the rainy season, but I grew up in Arizona and compared to the hot-ass summers I'd rather have rainy summers)

Expensive (that higher wage comes with a higher cost)
So-so public transport (the government is working on expanding the metro, but for right now buses seem to be the best best)
General Latin American crazy shit (I don't know how to describe this, but if you've spent any significant amount of time in Latin America then you know that sometimes random shit goes down. I assume Panamá is no exception).

Any anons that have been there, hit me up. Let me know what your trip was like. Is there anything else I should consider before I add this place to my list?

Burger here. What credit card do you guys use when traveling? I was planning on taking a 6+ month sabbatical from work and traveling for a bit, but trying to find the right card to use WHILE doing so (not just planning to). Like tons of cards give a load of benefits for booking flights, but not actually worth shit WHILE you're traveling. Even cards with bonus restaurant/market/gas categories specify within the US. Amex charge cards look more my style but then I'm left with the question of whether or not they'll be accepted in whichever country I'm in. What do you guys use?

Travel longer or not
Hi /trv/, I'd love some advice, whether it's from people who have done the same as me or just want to offer help.

I work online so I'm free to go anywhere. For the past year I've been taking short trips here and there but only for a week. For the remaining time I live at home with my parents.

I'm thinking of just traveling much longer term, perhaps 3-6 months, spending 2 weeks home, then setting off again. Or even traveling forever. The reason is I have basically nothing holding me home, and I hate where I live - it's cold, depressing, and people aren't the friendliest. It's also hilariously expensive so anywhere I go is cheaper.

I'd love to rent a nice apartment in a cheap beachside city while I work. The only things making me hesitate are that I won't have my comforts (a constant home, my instruments as I play music, small luxuries that I can't carry, all the things I'm used to basically), the ability to make long term friends, etc.

But I stagnate as a person if I live at home. It's too expensive for me to move out, and I don't like the country enough to move to a cheaper city. The only solution I can think of is to move to a cheap pretty city, stay long enough in one place to be able to make it "my home" then sell unneeded stuff and move again.

Any advice? I'm 22 if it matters. No responsibilities back home.

>hate my cold expensive country
>want to travel full time, a few months in each city
>but worried about not having the luxuries I have at home and having no base

Moving back to canada
Hey guys,

I am a canadian citizen, I have moved outside of canada for my families work. I've been outside of Canada since I was about 7 years old, and haven't been to canada since. I now have a UK degree, and I am planning on moving back soon and want to go back and start my life back home in Canada. I'm over 21 years old now, so I imagine there must be some paperwork that I need to sort out when I arrive such as social security, health insurance and taxes, and I was wondering what i should expect and what is needed of me? I don't really know where to ask or who to ask and want to start planning things out to know what i should have prepared before I leave for canada.

Out of the box travel ideas
I have 10.000 - 15.000 euro's saved up for a 6 - 9 month trip starting this september. Obviously COVID has wreaked havoc on my initial typical backpacking plan (in South America) . Instead, I'm looking to work with what's possible. I'm thinking remote adventures, or opportunities to stay in one place for a longer period of time to avoid travel struggles. Things like walking the Camino de Santiago, living on horseback with Mongolian nomads for a month, staying in a Buddhist monastery, just something crazy really, something that'll stick with me. I'm young and dumb so don't really care about health and safety hazards, just want to get out there and do shit. So, what would you do with 6-9 months of spare time and €10000-15000, given the current circumstances?

AirBnB is garbage
I need help!!!!
So these idiots automatically cancelled my reservation for failing to make the 2nd payment (I chose to pay half first, rest later). I however had sufficient funds and there must've been a problem on their part. I'm asking whether the host will recieve the first payment I made on the day was suppossed to arrive, or does AirBnB keep the money? I called the host and we arranged to keep the reservation privately without the shitty app and that I'd pay the rest in hand (if he recieves the money I paid through AirBnB).

Moving to Northern Ontario
What's up fags

I'm a somewhat qualified welder by trade (white), who's getting sick of unattainable house prices and the constant curry stink of Southern Ontario. I heard they're opening a lot of mines in the North and I was thinking about heading up that way and hoping to find some work, either in my trade or just as a drillers helper, surface miner, survey crew, etc. A guy can get a nice house and a patch of land for sub 200k (sub 100k if youre not picky), fish and ride ATV every day, work on cars and old boats during off time, start a family, have a nice cruisey life full of fresh air and wilderness.

I was looking at the Temiskaming Shores area but I'm open to suggestions.

A few questions hopefully someone can answer:

>how easy is it to get into the mining industry?
>is it easy to find work, trade related or otherwise?
>what is the fly-in-fly-out life like? Does it cause the maritial/drug/depression problems people warn about?
>how bad is the native problem?
>will my (future) kids end up meth addicts?
>is it easy to make friends?
>will everyone hate me for stealing their jobs? (I'm white white not east euro/spick/le 56% etc)
>will my future kids be considered city boys and ostracized even if born there?
>how fucked are the winters?
>is it a dumb idea overall?

If you can't answer all of them 1 or 2 will do. Seriously considering moving before winter.

I just discovered homestays but I can't wrap my head around it.
Why would anyone want to invite a random stranger into there home for a month or more?

The rates are all half of what Air BnB charge + you have to be around them the entire time. If the person is here on vacation they are going to want to enjoy themselves, they did not travel thousands of miles to be your butler/conversation doll right?

This is all I can really think with the majority of them being female only but again tinder.

The majority of these have to be scams right? Fronts for robbing travelers? "Stay in a $100 a night area for only $19 and we will also cook all your meals for you."

>Lonely people
Maybe but like, bruh go outside, make friends, don't invite a random stranger form across the world.
