/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

Have you stayed in any party hostels which are common in Europe and SEA?

How was your experience and would you do it again? Is it common to have people making out in dorms or is it a larp?

Colombia is open for American tourism!

No.1872766 ViewReplyOriginalReport
So while Euroqueers are currently busy getting locked down under their second wave, Colombia just opened today for American tourists!

Flights are starting from Cartagena to Miami and Fort Lauderdale on September 19th and expanding to other cities like Medellin, Bogota and Cali within the next few days.

Requirements are 96 hour COVID-19 test and filling out an immigration form within a day of your flight.

Colombia is said to have a scene that is just as good, if not better, than Thailand and the Philippines. Hotter, sexier and cheaper too. But there is some crime and language barriers to contend with there, plus most action is done via Facebook.

Any takers here?

Shit on my plan /trv/!!

About to graduate college this coming spring, and I was thinking about getting my tefl and teaching in china. Now heres where my plan gets retarded. I enjoy producing and mixing music. I'd love to go to china and eventually be a white monkey DJ for a year after my contact was up.

Possible roadblock:
>work visa expiring
>clubs aren't open due to covid(idk may be wrong, enlighten me)
>white djs are a saturated market that I'm not aware of, etc.

I realize it's kind of a retarded fantasy, but I honestly want to pursue it while I'm relatively young.

Soo /trv/, how retarded is my plan? What are some possible roadblocks? Give it to me straight.

Moving to Montreal vs. Tokyo

No.1875022 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Aight lads, I've fucking had it with my city and I want out. My aim in life is to work on my music/art whilst doing stuff on the side like selling t-shirts/doing commissions so that I don't end up homeless. I've come to the conclusion that Montreal and Tokyo are best suited to me due to the high quality of their underground art/music scenes, though as these cities are also pretty different to each other I thought I'd ask here to see what you guys thought, incase there was anything I hadn't considered. I'd say they're both pretty equal in terms of the quality of their cultural output, though if any anons have lived in both and feel that one is superior, I'd be interested to hear why. I'm currently in art school and if possible I would like to stay in education so that I get as much feedback on my craft as possible

Some thoughts I've had so far:
-Canada is way easier to emigrate to as a self-employed person (thinking about my prospects once I'm out of education), due to having a self-employed Work visa. If I went with Tokyo after my undergrad, I'd have to get enrol in a language school or do an art MA, something which would potentially cost me unwanted amounts of time/money
-Art school in Montreal appears to be more open-ended and flexible than in Tokyo, whose degrees force you to study one medium exclusively. Language barrier in Japan would be much higher
-Flying 1-2 hours from Montreal gets me to New England and the Mid-Atlantic US States, which I think would be really useful if I ever wanted to tour with a band or exhibit in galleries outside of Montreal
>inb4 Montreal is the obvious choice
The city aesthetic of Tokyo is something that had been a massive influence on my music/art for a few years now, and I can't help but feel that if I immersed myself directly within that environment then my craft would develop exponentially. I'm also worried that Montreal might feel a bit small

That's about it for now, thanks in advance

It seems alot of you have experience teaching abroad. I'm now starting a literature degree with the intention of doing some teaching afterwards, but recently I've had a desire to do an art degree, does this massively effect my chances of finding a job teaching?
