I just graduated college and instead of going straight to work I decided to travel for 3 months. After this I will be a corporate bitch the rest of my life so I want to get the most out of these three months because they will be the last time I will ever be able to travel for extended periods of time. I was wondering if you guys could give me advice as to where you would go to get the most amount of girls and have the best experiences. I'm very open to any and all suggestions and have no timeline as to how long I would stay in one place.

P.s. I will be traveling alone... what is everyone's opinion in staying at a host family as I do not know any other language besides english... they will also be able to show me around.


I was thinking:

Brazil- rio, floripa
columbia- neugine, bogota
argentina-cordoba
poland-krakow

if i have extra time:

phuket, tailand
iasi, romania
Why are you resigning yourself to a life of corporate bitchery? That's not in the spirit of RVF!

What's your budget?
OP:
Forget the corporate slavery crap. If you've got 20k, that will buy you one whole year of living and traveling in Asia. Party your ass off, bang a ton of sexy and feminine girls the type that doesn't exist anymore in the west. That 1 year will be plenty if time for you to not only live it up, party like a rock star and also most importantly, network with great people and figure something out in terms of businesses. There are a few major location independent hubs in Asia: BKK, Chiang Mai, in Thailand, Saigon in Vietnam, Manila and Davao in the Philippines, as well as Bali in Indonesia and Giangzhou/Shenzhen in China. Go there and network with these people and within a year you will figure a way to make enough money so that you will not have to return to that corporate BS.

Search here there have been a few threads on that very topic. Oh and get rid if that defeatist attitude that you only have 3 months off before a life of corporate slavery. It's your life, your call to make what you want if it. Don't key others or society dictate how you should spend your most previous asset: your time!

If you want the highest number of girls, why would you be considering a host family? You need your own place, or at least a hotel room.

South America in general is not an easy place to rack up numbers if you speak no Spanish/Portuguese. You should be thinking Asia.
trust me I don't want to work corporate, the goal would be to own an online business, but i haven't had any million dollar ideas yet so it looks like it might be my only option as of now.

I have about 14k saved up and that will wipe out my life savings.

I'm not really into asian girls, although i would love to visit thailand and experience it, so I'm going to focus on south america, which does not have much in terms of technology or business.

I appreciate all the advice, especially on life... all my friends are miserable and hate their lives

honestly i have very little knowledge of traveling to brazil or other south american countries. I'm blonde haired, blue eyed and a decent looking kid... i assumed I would walk in the place and be treated like a celebrity... atleast this is what I've heard will happen lol.
Why Iasi? Not even worth a look unless you're going there in school season dude.

I came to Bucharest over a month ago as a starting point to make my way down to some partying in Turkey/ Greek islands.

Still in Bucharest with no intention on leaving.

What have you been doing?

I have a month to kill in Eastern Europe coming up, I arrive in Budapest July 14 and was thinking of eventually heading south.
Mongolia seems cool. Ulan Bator.

Just hanging out; banging chicks. I am struggling to believe there could be a better place in the world for girls alone.

So yeah, Bucharest has my full recommendation if you're in the area.
Details.

Where are you based?
What is your race?
What kind of women do you like?
Do you want a quantity of women or would you prefer fewer and hotter?

Based out of Boston. I'm 22. I'm White about 215 pounds, People say I look similar to a stocky/built version of prince harry except blonde hair blue eyes. I like big asses, but honestly i'm not picky, i know a good looking woman when i see her. Obviously I want both, alot of woman who are all good looking, but if i had to pick one i'd pick quantity.

You need to hit the gym and work on your shape before splurging on travel. Your experience will be so much better and you'll have a far easier time pulling.

The people telling you you look like Prince Harry are being nice, not realistic.
----------------------------------------
Summer months hit Greek islands, Black Sea resorts in Bulgaria or Romania or Croatian coastline which I hear gets mixed reviews.
Once September hits then hit the towns/cities like Krakow, Bucharest or take your pick.
I would probably head straight to Budapest and set up shop there for awhile, taking various side trips.
Define stocky? Does that mean fat!

hahaha no im not fat but im not cut either. I'm thick and built. I hit the gym 5 days a week for the past 5 years and have packed on a good amount of muscle so ppl say i'm pretty big. I have a four pack, but could always lose a few pounds....
"I appreciate all the advice, especially on life... all my friends are miserable and hate their lives"

Wow, gotta add some new friends who can bring your attitude up not down. When you start working, recruit some mentors in the ~25-30yo range, guys who have had long enough to get the first job out of the way and are starting to push for what they really want to do. They'll help you get on the right track.
As for the trip...there's more to travel than partying and pickup and you should take advantage. I like Europe so my suggestions are biased there but:

Do you like history? Consider London, Normandy, Rome and Vienna.

Do you like art? Paris (the Louvre and the Picasso museum) and Florence (Academia and Uffizi) are unmatched in the West.

Do you like beer? (Real beer, not mass-made American swill) Consider Munich and Prague with Brussels if you can fit it in.

Do you like cycling? Consider Belgium, the Netherlands, France or Ireland for amazing views and trails.

Do you have any distinctive bloodlines you take pride in (or are you a Euromutt)? Visit some of your homelands. I got an authentic blanket of my family's tartan/plaid in Scotland.

Right, assumed your excess weight was lard rather than muscle. Carry on.

Im trying to figure this out.... why are you turning this into a debate over whether im fat or not? How does that have any significance to what I'm asking.

Considering that no one in this thread actually helped you with with your questions, I'll give it a go.

$14,000 is a lot of money for 3 months. Not sure if you want to spend all of that or not, but for reference, I went 11 months in Colombia and Brazil for ~$16,000. But I didn't really move around much and found places where I liked (stayed in Santa Marta and Rio for probably about 7-8 months combined of that 11 months), which is a good way to spend less.

So you could either go a lot longer if you wanted to. I personally advise this because it take at least 2 months to get to a very basic level of Spanish or Portuguese (Portuguese is a tougher language to learn out of the two, particularly comprehension).

If you are staying only three months:

I would pick a corner of the continent and stay there. I don't know if these are just 'possibilities' or an actual rough itinerary, but if you are only going for 3 months that is a lot of pointless travelling.

If I were you and had three months, I would do something like: Rio de Janeiro-Sao Paulo-Florianopolis-Buenos Aires (maybe throw in a couple other places like Cordoba or Rosario, or Foz de Igaucu or Montevideo). For me, places like Rio and BA are worth at least 2-3 weeks each. I stayed 5 months in Rio (I have also been there 5 separate times now as well), which is probably more than most people, and a month in BA. These are the types of cities that building a bit of a social network and settling down a bit will give you a much experience.

Colombia could be 3 months on its own, like something like this: Bogota-Medellin-Cartagena-Santa Marta-Bucaramanga (then maybe hit up Cali/Potosi and Quito for a bit)

For reference, I am thinking about doing a 3 month trip in January to Ecuador and Peru. The only thing I am doing is Quito-Guayquil-Huascaran-Lima. Probably stay a month in each of Quito and Lima at the ends, and a month in between doing some trekking and a little off the beaten path.

But that's how I like to travel. Jumping from place to place may sound exciting, but if you have time and money, less is more in my opinion. For getting girls, even if you pipeline massively and party almost every night, jumping from place to place will hinder your chances severely. The people who get the most locals, at least from my experience, are people who set up shop, amp up their language skills, learn how the local girls operate, build a social network, and have good logistics. You just can't do that as a frantic traveller unless you have significant connections in the places you are going to (most people don't).

General thoughts about Latinas in South America:

Learn both beta and alpha game. I cannot stress this enough. I see so many Americans or others come into Latin America and try to play American/alpha game and strike out massively. Actually, it's one of my favourite forms of entertainment when I go out.

What I mean is this: there is a massive machismo culture in many LA countries. This creates a bit of a backlash effect, many girls have aversion and do not like super aggressive men. Men who hound, pester, tease/treat women poorly, particularly gringos with low social status get eaten alive in Latin America.

You can be aggressive in approaching, but having a gentle demeanour, and being that "sweet but confident guy" will up your game considerably here. Now, you can play a numbers game and stick with an American game and do okay, but if you learn how to play both sides of the coin depending on which type of girl you are working with, you will do better.

Spanish/Portuguese is a major asset. I did fine in my early stages of language skills, but even then, I was still going after girls who didn't speak English and language-of-loving them. Outside of wealthy areas of major cities, the vast majority of people in these countries won't speak any or intermediate English. Solely relying on English is going to hurt you.

Countries like Brazil and Argentina are notorious for 2 nighters. One night stands are attainable when you learn the ropes, but for a low status gringo, second night bangs are going to be the norm. This means that you probably won't have the opportunity to have sex with a girl unless it is the second night/time you are hanging out with them. This is another reason staying longer term is better. Word of advice: the second night, go out with a friend and their friends to a bar or club, it's way easier to pull that 1 on 1-ing on second date, especially if language is lacking.

------

I wouldn't stay with a family. You might hit gold and find a really chill family. But chances are you will end up in a house with a lot of restrictions on how/when you can come home and you won't be able to bring home guests.

Stay in a hostel, and if you like the place, find a short-term apartment. Or couch surf with a separate room or find a hostel with cheap private rooms.

I actually lived in a hostel for the whole 5 months I was in Rio. I became tight with everyone that worked there. It had a terrace with a roof at the top, and it became mine at night time. This kind of thing is possible to find especially if you buddy up with the employees/owner of hostels. It's actually better than an apartment because I got to meet a bunch of people all the time because there is a steady flow of people coming in and out to hang out with.
^^^Great post. I would add that a couple months of Spanish/Portuguese practice on DuoLingo and a couple of other tutorials like Pimsleur/Rosetta Stone will put you in a much better position to communicate.

That said, everybody I've known who goes abroad and tries to get laid loses bangs because of the language barrier. That will happen to you too no matter how much work you put in before you hit the ground. Use it as a opportunity to improve and motivate yourself to be better next time.

Also, keep in mind that the girls in big cities like Sao Paulo (I had some success there, but got my ass kicked cold approaching) who are more likely to speak English are also less likely to be forgiving of bad game. So if you're a relative beginner, you may want to plan some trips to smaller cities where the English levels are lower, but the girls are friendlier.
