As the several traveling threads prove, there are plenty of wizards who are curious about the world. Here, we talk about our traveling wishes and interests in a more abstract and general sense. What countries have you visited? What were your experiences? What countries are you curious about visiting and why? Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague? It doesn't matter if your traveling ideas are realistic or not, just share what interests you.
I was personally always more intrested in the more obscure and mysterious places that you never see on TV, and how people live there. Some islands in the middle of nowhere, certain African countries with an unremarkable present but a cool history, the mountain villages of Tibet, stuff like that. I've travelled around Europe a bit and was shocked how big a difference in culture there is between countries so close by, in the countless details of culture, food, architecture, people's temperament, and so on. I'm hoping to save up enough for a trip to Asia and/or Africa. There's a lot to experience out there.
i have never traveled abroad.

Many niggaz in Southside Chiraq never left their hood to go to the city center let alone other cities or countries.[ 10d14 = 85 ]
I wouldn't travel even if I were filthy rich. The reality of it would just end up like anything else in this world, depressingly inferior to the fantasy.
I've been to France(Marseilles) for non-tourism reasons. I don't really like travelling though and even if I was rich I would probably only visit Japan and maybe some tank museums and such.
I've only ever traveled abroad to visit relatives or when I have business there. Usually, I don't really enjoys visiting tourist's hotspot and local landmarks. My best experience is probably riding my motorcycle with my dad to visit some Buddhist ruins in Java. That's what traveling should be, being able to go anywhere you want, not following some shitty tour plan where you visit artificial tourist hotspot built by money grubbing government officials to attract dumb far eastern tourists. I've always wanted to go on a road trip, like at the end of Oyasumi Punpun. Just go as far as you can before dying.
I wouldn't mind going to Britain or some East Asia, namely Tibet, Vietnam, etc. Pretty much the rural places. I would probably avoid the middle east and Africa for now as well as most European countries. I would probably avoid India too.
I'd visit the Sahara to look for neolithic settlement, ancient civilisation lost in the desert, and the Richart structure. If I knew how to do archaeology and the funding or personal money to do it.>>50319
Marseilles is one of the worst place you could possibly visit in France. The whole city is decaying and collapsing.
The old town is indeed quite nice. I don't know how the police security has changed in recent years, but it was pretty bad at some point. As for the decay, entire buildings have also started to collapse, some of which are/were still being inhabited.
I've been thinking about Iran, Burma, Ethiopia or Europe. Are there any tips you eurowizzies can give a burger for travelling in Europe? What are the most anti-american places in Europe?
>>50332>Are there any tips you eurowizzies can give a burger for travelling in Europe?
I haven't travelled alone, so I have no idea how you're supposed to do that, or how much it'll cost. The countryside is pretty nice to visit, if you enjoy strolling in nature, and there's a lot of villages and small towns worth seeing.
>What are the most anti-american places in Europe?
People don't care that much about Americans. Those who care, are progressives, but you can fool them by wearing a Refugee Welcome t-shirt (not that they are going to attack you in the first place), and Muslims as you could expect, they are relatively easy to avoid if you have spatial awareness (probably the same skill you'd develop around blacks from the hood), to be fair, they keep to themselves and don't bother anybody most of the time if you don't go to bad neighbourhoods. Depending on the cities and place, they'll try to rob you, or sell you drugs but that has nothing to do with you being American.
>Any particular place you'd avoid like the plague?
China. Been there 2 times. Both times were terrible. Political shit aside, china is a terrible country to live in and visit. Very crowded, every single chinese person is a jobsworth, food is either tasteless mush or unbearably spicy. Every single attraction is filled with the usual chinese tourists times 5.
Do not recommend. If you really want to visit an overpopulated asian country - pick Japan.
Its just leftist countries that hate Americans. Poland is the country that loves America the most right now. If you are bound to mobility scooter like most Americans you should check out the cities that have historical buildings, modern cities are boring.
Reading one Japanese comic per month is enough Japanese stuff for me, I have never understood the fascination with Japan, is that an Anglo thing? The only people I know that watch Japanese cartoons are Anglos.
I'm more interested in Taiwan. I've done some research on it and it seems like a really cool place. Had mainland china been managed like that, it would have been the most beautiful, culturally lush and economically prosperous country in the world by far. It's like a bizarre window into alternative history of "what china would have been if communists didn't fuck it up".
>Poland is the country that loves America the most right now.
It's Kosovo. Not even a contest.
I've been to Mexico (Chihuahua, Sonora, Baja California and Mexico City) and Canada (most of the big cities). I would like to visit Europe, Russia, and Central Asia. The "stan countries" in particular seem very wizardly to me although they're probably pretty hardcore for an inexperienced solo traveler who doesn't know russian.
How would you say Canada is different from US? What was your general impression of mexico?
Burger safe-space Israel, here I come.
Beer was invented by Jews and coffee by Africans.
I visited Italy this summer and their capuccino was absolutely fantastic, and cheap, too. I drank 5 cups a day while there. The problem is that after returning home to my frozen wastes I can no longer drink the slop they call "capuccino" here. There is such a thing as knowing too much.
>>50462>There is such a thing as knowing too much.
there's so damn much truth in this, this is why I became basically ascetic years ago, I won't even try new foods or do things like google what my favorite musicians look like
you can't miss what you don't know
fantasy is always better than reality
And civilization by Africans and Chinese, I get it. White people did invent some stuff you know, you don't need to bash us for no reason.
I just realized how random this looks but every country here has something cool that I want to experience.>>53557
Have a spare ticket?
Whites invented colonialism, there you go
What is there to do in Ethiopia?
They're a pretty unique country in Africa, the only one never properly colonized. I've read up on it a little and I like the internal politics, different tribes/territories with their own cultures and intrigues. It would be fun to travel around with a good guide who could show and tell me about the country. I also became interested in heir food after visiting some Ethiopian restaurants.
I'm not some hardcore anthropologist but a more serious kind of tourist visit would be pretty fun. I.e. you don't just snap pics of landmarks and go home, but actually stay in the country for a little while and soak in the atmosphere.
I read something once about ethiopian monks living in very tall towers that are like 2000 years old, like wizard towers
those would be cool to visit
Good job coloring all those countries in red. It must have taken you a while.
He knows what he hates.
Show me a picture or else i disbelief
alright it wasn't a tower, it was thishttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abba_Pantelewon
it was 20 years ago in a national geographic *shrug*
Don't want to visit NZ?
What did you do in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, wiz?
