*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

Seriously dating foreign women
28 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
For those of you that are traveling long-term, digital nomads, living abroad... what are your thoughts and experiences on marrying (or seriously dating) women from abroad?
I've never stayed in one place long enough to seriously date anyone, but the Latinas and Asians I've casually dated abroad have mostly blown away the girls that I have been with back here in the US. Not just in attractiveness, but mostly personality-wise.
At first I was dismissing the idea because of the stigma of having a "mail-order bride", and the risk of her only being after a visa, but now I'm seriously considering it.
I'm sure lots of us on here have had similar experiences. Thoughts on this?

I want do drop everything and just leave. I just want to see this world.
The new year, 2017 got me thinking about how I want to spend this year. I'm 21. I have a good software job at a big tech company. I worked hard to get here. I did it...right? But I'm not sure if I'm happy...
I spend a most of my days looking at flights, and travel deals and blogs and stories. I could tell you Southwest or Norwegian's route map by heart. I dream of going backpacking and getting lost in the alley ways of Prague or hiking the great wall again. I miss the street foods of Korea. Whenever I'm at work, I long for the of hiking, the sun, the beaches, the food, the people, the temples, the cultures. I try to spend almost every moment out and about traveling/road tripping/hiking. If have this itch if I'm not moving and out and about.
I can't stand that I'm cooped up in an office all day, 9-6, every week. By the time I leave work and get home, I'm exhausted. I hate the idea that I need to accumulate vacation days. I can't stand that I only get 3 weeks a year. 3 weeks?!
Can someone give me advice? Does anyone feel like this? Please don't get me wrong. I'm so incredibly thankful for what I have. I've never told anyone about this, and I feel like I can't talk to anyone about this. No one I know I could relate. I know that I'm young, and I have so much time ahead of me. But that doesn't' make me feel better.
I've thought about taking saving for a year or two, quitting my job, and just traveling. But that's so radical. Couldn't imagine telling my family that I would give up a high paying job to be an uppaid backpacker. Also, I don't permanently want this. I want to do it now, when i'm young. I'm I being crazy? I'm I ungrateful? Can someone who can relate, put in my place or give me their thoughts?
