One time I was walking somewhere I shouldn't have been and felt an itch on my foot. I looked at my foot and there as a small mark on the side of it. I had convinced myself that I had been poked with an HIV infected needle. According to my internet research the virus doesn't stay active for long if it's exposed to air but it can live inside of the needle for prolonged periods of times. Anyway I got a free HIV check and was VERY RELIEVED when it came up negative.
Also I like this tidbit: Saigon was a major processing center for opium. This building still exists and has a dedicated sign telling about the history of the building and it's economic influence for indochina. It's across from the park hyatt.

I'd suggest reading the teacher reviews, watching introduction videos, and taking advantage of trial lessons.
I think iTalki is best used as conversation and listening practice. If you self-study like me, it's a great resource to practice new grammar concepts and listen to native Japanese speakers.
It's also a ton of fun. I stick with one teacher and she doesn't mind going over our hour reservation just to chat and I look forward to it each week.

I'm Thinking about moving and working abroad for atleast a year for a much needed change of scenerey, and have already decided on Portugal. I though I was set on Lisbon, but Porto seems like a very nice place as well.
I'm 27 and in my spare time I like to go out on adventures with others. Be it Social, festive, sportsy or culture wise. I'm a huge fan of minding my own in a park with a book.
Ill be making somewhere around 1200 pre taxes/costs.

Since it's my idea to go and live there i'm not really interested in the standard tourists things (i'll visit them probably, but i'll have enough time) but more in what the general sense/vibe is in each town, what's their to do and what are the pro's/cons of both cities.
The employer offers a shared appartment but I can also find something on my own. Is renting currently doable in either of those two cities?

>>2114603
You spend the whole day at sintra, ideally during fall:

>take first train from Lisbon or go by car
>hit up Quinta da Regaleira before the tourist hordes
>explore the city center, have breakfast, taste the pastries
>hit up the National Palace (museum), optional
>go up an 1h trail or take a tuk tuk up to the Moor Castle
>go to Palácio da Pena (the yellow castle)
>go to High Cross in the castle's gardens, highest point in the region
>nice views of the whole region, all the way up to the Atlantic Ocean if the weather is clear
>explore the city center, have lunch
>drive or take the bus to Cabo da Roca, continental Europe's westernmost point, to see the sunset
>stop by Capuchos Convent along the way if you have time

The purpose of "Business" class is to have comfy flights for people who fly often, such as corporate folk, or precious cargo delivery.

Seaworld owed RMC 3.5 million dollars in 2020. Seaworld didnt pay because of the coof harming profits so the theory goes, that RMC presumably walked away with the keys to the ride and wouldn't allow it to open until they could pay up in full.

Anyone have that copypasta where a dude enters a restaurant alone and gets seated at a table while everyone stares at him? The chef hears news of the solofag and BTFOs him from the restaurant while everyone cheers and claps
>>
I have always traveled abroad alone since I'm a legal adult, and I like it that way because I can do what I want whenever I want.
No need to plan anything if I don't feel like it, no one is going to give me shit if I suddenly decide to sit on a random bench and drink beers for a hour instead of rushing to the next tourist trap, no one is going to nag me if I want to traverse a city by foot instead of taking public transports.
I'm so glad I didn't travel with my spoiled ex-gf, she would have been a huge pain in the ass.
My current gf is way less needy, so I think it could work if we would spend a week in Italy, take a night bus to get there or something, but still, I'm a bit afraid she will impede on my just-in-time way of planning things and ask me to shell out more money than usual.
I don't know how I would react because I associate travel with absolute social freedom away from the people I usually hang out with.
I have a few friends with whom I could possibly have a nice trip, and it's nice to meet past friends or random locals along the way, but personally, I don't mind travelling solo.

considering alot of people here traveled around the world, is it true that Anglos/whites in Anglo countries are boring compared to other people around the world?

I've only traveled twice but both times solo, to Japan and Austria.

Honestly it does get awkward going to restaurants alone especially not knowing the language. I do feel the glares and being treated differently. Traveling is definitely easier with a partner, and I bet solo female travelers have it easier too because everyone is always nice to women because they want to fuck them.

I wouldn't say I "have fun", I more just get mental healing by being outside of my daily life for a week or two. I eat lots of local food, try to see some nature and do some limited sightseeing. Honestly my favorite is the food part. I love how stuff which is so expensive in my home city is usually so fucking cheap and way better too

This is not true at all. I haven't lived there for a while so I'm sure prices have increased but neighborhood stores are good for a cheap acceptable cheesesteak not a good one, with the caveat that cheesesteaks that aren't an hour drive from the city are considered unacceptable trash

Tokyo has a lot to explore, but it’s not as visitor-friendly as either Kyoto or Osaka in my experience. Kyoto is prettier (Tokyo is largely pretty ugly unless you’re specifically into concrete jungles and hundreds of miles of nondescript modernist architecture; there’s a better density of historic or at least well-reconstructed stuff to look at in Kyoto), Osaka is more manageable in size. Plus I personally liked the food in Osaka more, but that may have been random chance.

Personally I preferred Tokyo over Osaka. There wasn't as much for me to do personally in Osaka, whereas Tokyo is so sprawling you can dip into smaller areas like Asakusa, Taito or Takadanobaba and still find little hole-in-the-wall places and things to see and do. Osaka you can do in a day or two, whereas Tokyo can take weeks and still not get your fill.
