I'm 23 days into my trip. NYC, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Cologne, and now to Zurich with a beautiful 24-year-old computer programmer girl #Excited.

I've had some emotional ups and downs on this trip. The most disparate one day emotional change occurred on what was supposed to be my last night in Paris: I was assaulted and robbed by French police officers, cried next to a monument for 15-20 minutes, then went on the Paris bar crawl, made out with some cute girls, then pulled an Asian girl back to her place and closed her a few days later. We fell in love so hard and explored Paris for three more days before I left.

None of this is to brag, I just want to share these experiences with you and encourage you to travel the world. So far I've spent around $100 total in accommodation, $75 in transportation ($330 flight over though), and the rest for food and events. In short: couchsurf, carpool, supermarket + street food. Hybrid accommodation strategy: stay in hostel for 1-2 days, meet local students and/or lovers and stay with them for free.

Without further ado...

Best
Underground rave/drag show in Brooklyn
Approached a model during a photo shoot in Paris
Beastmode pickup in Amsterdam with Sandro (Italian girls, Danish girls, perfect Russian girl, etc)
Ethereal beauty of Cathedrals, state monuments, and parks
Romance and adventure with Hana
Trolling prostitutes in the red light district (Well... I managed to piss off every prostitute in Amsterdam while high tonight. Funniest night in my entire life. A group of British dudes followed me around to watch each approach.)

Worst
Got assaulted/robbed by French police
Got slapped and berated by a prostitute in Amsterdam after insisting that she pay me
Missed my international bus at 11:30 pm (Paris to Amsterdam)
Getting lost for hours
Got 80 euros, iPhone, and pepper spray stolen at a hostel in Amsterdam
Being repeatedly asked by beggars, drug dealers, and scam artists for money

If you have any questions about travel in general or my trip in specific, I'd love to answer them! :) AMA

Trolling the prostitutes was one of the most fun parts of my trip. It was part of a dedication to conquer one of my sticking points in game: approaching super hot girls. I did attract a few, one even asked to add me on facebook, which she did and I tried to set up a day 2--date--however, that fell through. It's difficult to convince someone who can make 150-200 euros in an hour to go on a date with you and f*ck you for free.

Besides attracting them, I played a few games:
1. Pretend I had no idea where I was, then freak out like, "Wait! You're a prostitute?!" Some laughed hysterically when I was on point, others were upset lol.
2. Convince them to pay me for sex.
3. Ask for the most ridiculous sh!t: beat me up, take a sh!t on my chest, call me your dad's name, toothy BJs, "Can my four friends and I f*ck you simultaneously?" etc.
4. Ask the price to go down on (cunnilingus) the prostitute. She said, "100 euros for 40 minutes." I asked, "I'm going to make you cum in an amazing orgasm." Her, "...okay. 80 euros." LOL
5. Convincing other dudes to go in and fvck them (worked successfully twice). That prostitute ended up being a good friend of mine.
6. Seeing how far I could convince them to go without paying. Turns out that it's until they put the condom on.
7. Dance offs. No explanation necessary.
8. I loved spitting mad game and feeling their perfect titties. omnomnom

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Model story
I was running some pretty mad game in Paris with this one RSD dude who was like 42. So, for example, I would be hitting on two Swiss girls and he'd roll in like, "Austen, sorry I didn't see you come in here" and try to wing with me. Then the girls would be like, "LOL is this your dad?" haha.

We were walking around a beautiful part of Paris near Bastille when we came upon an entire photo shoot: lights, directors, makeup and hair people, and of course the model--a stunning 10/10 elegant girl. My wing says, "Huh huh, how funny would that be to approach that girl." I was like, "hahahaha, that would be hilarious, I'm doing it."

I walk up in the club like what up I got a cool mom. JK, but I made a strong approach, laser eye contact, dominant body language, "YOU! You're cute, I had to walk over and say hi. My name's Austen, what's yours?" "haha, I'm Emily." --bullsh!t chitchat for 1 minute-- "I'm pretty impressed you approached me. I've never had a guy approach me during a shoot." blah, blah, blah. Parisian cheek kisses, then I was out and laughed for a good 2 minutes. One of the most ballsy things I did on the trip.

In Vondelpark in Amsterdam, a girl ran past me on her jogging route, and I sprinted to catch up with her, stop her, and chat her up. She was also quite impressed lol.

Did you deserve it?

I'd say I 35% deserved it. I hadn't cum for a week, so I was aggressive with my testosterone peaking. I actually bought 10 billets (tickets) and had thrown the last one away exiting the metro train. I was 50 meters from the exit and that's where the controllers were. Had I played the game, smiled and used my tact, I could have gotten away with a warning perhaps; but I was in no mood that night.

Anyway, I used my fury to pull an Indonesian girl and close her that night.

How did you get pepper spray robbed? Did you try to use it?

Pissed off an ex-gang member in Amsterdam. He stole it out of my pocket while I slept.

Police incident: I was being an *sshole about the ticket situation, started yelling at the ticket people, trying to leave, getting thrown against the wall repeatedly, main ticket dude came over and I finally slapped 50 euros against his chest, waited for my change, then walked away.

While walking away, I flicked them off with my middle finger and immediately got blindsided by a French police officer against a wall and fell down. Got yelled at more by the chief ticket dude of douchedom and left the metro toward Bastille where I cried for 20 minutes before the Paris bar crawl (5 euros).

Had some pretty good sex that night and fell in love with the girl over the subsequent days of adventure.

Your reality is like an Indie-romance. Here is my prediction:

1.> The movie ends with you brooding on a gray-scale beach at sundown. The viewer is left wondering if it's a metaphor for the sun setting on the most significant moment of your life.

2.> Arriving in Zurich, you are drawn into the tragic drama of a street-walking Heroin addict. There is A LOT of crying. A LOT. Possibly some dangerous sex, which you immediately regret. Her pimp eventually beats you and leaves your broken body in a gray-scale alley at sundown. The viewer is left wondering if it's a metaphor for the sun setting on the most significant moment of your life.

3.> You are approached by a hip punk-rocker girl with the cutest lip-ring. She seduces into an evening of drug induced dancing at some strange club that smells like hummus and tobacco. You awake then next day in a shipping crate aboard a Ugandan freight-liner.

"Strange", you think. "Uganda is landlocked." You peer out a crack between two steel reinforced cargo doors.

The camera drifts upward slowly and the screen goes into a gray-scale birds-eye view at sundown.The viewer is left wondering if it's a metaphor for the sun setting on the most significant moment of your life.

You're clearly missing the references to several Indie horrors of American tourists in Paris.
I can see how the whole bit seems douchie in that case.

I'm European. Of course I know what you're experiencing. I also know these few fun details:

> For some reason, they keep mixing tobacco into the joint.
> The bakery is a love-affair on it's own. (I suggest the "Rum-Kugel")

You had me at curry wurst <3

#1 haven't tried. Don't drink coffee, should try Zurich coffee once though.
#2 Yeah, what the fvck is with that?
#3 Parisian bakeries > Life
#4 Yeah, they aren't as pale as the Dutch or British, that's for sure.
#5 It's been my goal ever since Germany to see how many sausages I can fit in my mouth at once. And yes I am aware how gay that sounds.

I spent part of my childhood in Vermont. I absolutely yearn for a Vermont winter. There are costs to every climate. Having snow, for me, outweighs the cost by far. The aesthetics and atmosphere alone are enhanced by calm of flurries.

Then again, I have a bit of the Robert Frost spirit...I'm soothed by open woodland and crisp air.

I hate Atlanta...hate it so much....so much.....
