This, Pede.

Plenty of places to see in this beautiful country. You could spend decades just trying to soak up all its beauty.

Maybe stay out of California. And New York. And Illinois. Basically the shit hole blue states.

Otherwise, get the map out and start living.

I traveled and lived all over the world. Few places in South America. Lots of places in Europe.

Poland, Czechia (man i can't get used to that name), Estonia, Croatia, and even Bosnia (although I've only been to Sarajevo), Hungary (only have been to Budapest) have been worth the visit. Northern Italy is nice, Rome is a shit hole.

South America is mostly a shit hole. There are nice small areas here and there, but they're tourist traps, lots of crime in big cities.

I traveled a lot by car and RV in the US as well. So many great things to see here especially when it comes to nature. I think Europe has the US beat in the variety of culture and traditions and really old shit, but as far as nature the US wins.

I love the Christmas Markets in Germany, no where in the US does it like that. There's a thing I miss from every place where I lived, but ultimately the place I choose to live in, is the US, #2 if I had to pick would be Poland.

I keep hearing Poland as a possible #2 from lots of pedes.. nice food, decent government and beautiful ladies.

It's safe, nice old cities, some for some reason are still unknown to tourists, good nightlife, mountains, the sea, centrally located in Europe.

One thing that I found more complicated than other places is public transport. Unless you know how it works it's a little hard to figure out on the spot, especially the busses. Even so I managed to get everywhere and didn't get lost or end up in the middle of nowhere.

Paul_Revere 2 points ago +2 / -0

No Second Amendment. And the Polish language is no snap to learn.

Then someone here,needs to start doing Christmas markets like they do in Germany(cuz the will prolly be stopped soon as to not offend the rapefugees)

It's kind of hard to pull off without some medieval cities. Everyone brings up the one in Nuremberg, but my favorite one happens in Esslingen. Picture I found online.

Part of it is also that most places in the US you can't walk around drinking alcohol in the streets to drink the Glühwein which is the best part. Hot booze on a cold night. Especially some Brandy based Glühwein.

Also here people don't do open fires in the streets because some retard will get burned and sue.

Want a vacation trip? I highly recommend Poland.

4 days around Krakow (a castle from 1400, WW2 history galore, great food, everything is half price compared to the US) - then 5 days in the Zakopane mountains. Like the alps, although smaller - but without 8 zillion people and the prices are acceptable in Zakopane.

Krakow has nuns and priests walking around the streets in full garb. And no tunisians, syrians, algerians - as do all the other EU countires.

Are they pretty cool towards Americans that don't speak Polish?

2
phibetared 2 points ago +2 / -0

They love Americans. They all want to come to the US and make money. "My (aunt/uncle/sister) is in Chicago!" is a common proud boast.

And they are happy to see American passports at the border. Not sure if the chinese flu has changed things, but the EU has a 90 day rule - you have to leave after 90 days. The only country that will let you back in after 1 day... is Poland - if you are American. People fly out to London for 1 day, then return. Then you get a new 90 day visa in the EU. Try that in France and they literally put you back on a departing airplane.

Thanks for the info. My son was pard of a special forces detail that guarded POTUS, and he got out in 2020. He's been doing wildland firefighting and is finishing up some paramedic schooling right now. He was thinking of taking a few months to travel, and I think Poland would be a place he'd go. Maybe he'll meet a based Polish lady...lol.

2
phibetared 2 points ago +2 / -0

Wow, your son has two cool jobs. Must be very interesting.

Yes, he'll meet Polish woman without a doubt. They are very good in conservative ways. But they are still female, which always causes problems at some point. Tell him to be very careful!

1
NavySTG 1 point ago +1 / -0

He enjoyed the POTUS detail, but it kept him from seeing the world. He ultimately wants to just be a firearm in a midsized town. The wilderness EMT cert and wildland firefighting will look good on a resume. So, before he starts applying, he wants to travel a bit.

He'll probably go over there and wind up not even talking to any of them. Too many gold diggers.

Stick to the tourist areas. The hotels and stuff pay for the cartels to leave tourists alone, or so I’ve heard.

The United States is a beautiful country with many amazing places, some of the most striking scenes there are. When I was in my 30s I took a two week trip through Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah and there were some truly awe inspiring places to see and things to do. Even just going south from SLC to Flagstaff has a half dozen natural parks that are amazing. Could have spent a year in Moab, UT and never gotten bored.

I have done all of that before the Commies took over America. It is great scenery!

Agreed! Im doing a USA tour now, came back from Fairbanks, AK on Monday. Beautiful, negative 22 and absolutely beautiful outside. The mountains, the hot springs, the landscape, the people, the extreme weather, the air of freedom. Flying over the Rockies is breathtaking.

In January I'm going to visit Red Rocks and the grand canyon.

I traveled the world, taking for granted the beautiful country we call home. Never again. This land is your land, this land is my land, from California, to the NY island. From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters, this land was made for you and me

OhLollyLollyPop 7 points ago +7 / -0

Me, too. My H passed away 6 months after he retired. I have no interest in going anywhere that is a Blue area or city. I have already been to all of the western National Parks with my H. The last time we went to California, we decided not to go back.

AerialRush 3 points ago +3 / -0

From first-hand experience. Japan is great, as a foreign tourist you are practically treated like royalty. For Poland, I have never been there but I'm still interested in seeing it. I missed seeing Europe before all the illegal foreign invasions and covid insanity has happened. So yeah that basically sums it up for safe and enjoyable places to go, only half the states in the USA, Poland and Japan are left after factoring in the totalitarian covid regimes. Unfortunately you cannot travel to Japan even if you wanted to just yet anyway so save money or visit Poland or more of the USA.

As a Texan, the only places I'm interest in going is to Florida and Mexico. Perhaps I'd visit like St. Petersburg or Poland.

My bf's dream had always been to sell everything and sail around the world for two years before settling down and having kids... a couple years ago he bought a sailboat, then covid happened. Now countries are starting to open up again and we faced the harsh reality that without the clot shot, traveling to a lot of countries was going to be a huge hassle if not downright impossible (quarantine hotels are very expensive and we both flat out refuse to ever do the nasal covid tests).

We've also realized that a lot of the places we really wanted to see are now places we don't want to give a dime of our money to, like New Zealand, Canada, and most of Europe. We might sail around the southern US a little bit, but that around the world trip will probably never happen.

Alaska, trust me you won't regret it! Just got back from Fairbanks on Monday, it's cold and far away but worth the trip.

I'm doing a USA tour, want to see the beauty of this country and meet Americans. Heading to the Grand Canyon in January.

In the time of Jules Verne's 'Around the World in 80 Days', it was arguably safer to travel. Europeans were in charge everywhere and there was at least a modicum of rule of law.

I genuinely lost interest in visiting most countries. The only country that I have any interest left in is Japan for the SOLE reason that they seem pretty apolitical compared to everyone else.

We're currently re-planning our retirement to spend it traveling from Conservative area to Conservative area in the good ole USA instead of our previously planned world Nation State travel and cruises. Y'all deserve our retirement recreation dollars way more than the rest of this screwed-up world. Looking forward to meeting you and experiencing what your community has to offer us tourists.

Japan and South Korea are worth a visit. South Korea is very easy for foreigners. Japan is a little harder but people in both countries are very friendly. Japan is a super interesting place.

There was a scene in its always sunny with Mac who says he’s gonna travel the world, but then starts crossing everything out on a map with a marker because they are shitholes.

I remember laughing at that scene for thinking he was being ridiculous but now I completely agree lol.

I think the only countries Id possibly consider visiting is Poland. But I would only consider it if I could teleport there because fuck airlines, so that will never happen. So nowhere.

Asia is awesome, don't worry about culture or language. You have money and a universal translation device, that will solve basically every problem and the citizens (maybe not the governments) are super chill.

I've done months in China and weeks in Thailand only being able to say "hello, thank you, sorry", and it was awesome. Pointing to food or maps and typing numbers on calculators solves those problems, and just general not sweating the small stuff / affair with the flow is invaluable and a good life lesson.

Not sure about it currently with covid, but if the chance comes absolutely go for it and just let it happen, and u promise you won't regret it.
