Hey, /trv/, I know this thread may seem kind of personal not super-travel related, but I'm wondering if there are any California, Colorado or Oregon bros who might be able to get a hold of some Pliny the Elder beer for me. If you don't know, it's a highly acclaimed beer that's really hard to get. It's only directly available in the states I listed.
I live in Japan and I would gladly get you some cool stuff from Japan like weird snacks, anime stuff, whatever you want in addition to payment for the beer, just say what you want.
Sorry, I didn't know a better way to do this. You can't even find this beer on the online retailers. If this thread needs to be taken down, I understand.
ESL in the Middle East / ESL General (?)

Hey, /trv/, I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience or at least insights about teaching English in the Middle East? I've done the ESL thing in Korea and Japan, and I'm interested in trying it out there. I have a Bachelor's (of course) and combined 3 years of experience. Do you think it would be possible for me to get a job? At first glance it appears that most of the jobs seem to require a Master's and/or State License. Are there jobs out there for people with just a BA and experience? I have a small suspicion that the surfeit of qualifications may be a tactic to scare people off and keep the number of applications down? True or am I delusional? How about getting a TEFL cert? I have a dinky online one that the Korean ministry of Ed made me get for my job there. But I doubt that would carry much weight?
Any insights or leads are appreciated, thanks!
Feel free to ask about ESL in general. I can shed some light on Korea and Japan, at least.

I'm a pretty anxious person. I hate going out of my comfort zone and it doesn't take much to send me into panic mode/thinking I'm going to faint. Pic related is my usual state of being.
I've been offered the opportunity to travel abroad next year, and although I'm sure I'll like it, I'm terrified. The idea of sitting on a plane for 7 hours and being somewhere far away from everything and everyone is incredibly scary. Yes I'm a fucking wuss, but I can't help it, anxiety sucks.
How can I get over this fear of travelling, anons? How do you calm yourself, or how do you approach visiting the unknown? Any tips for the crazy traveller?
