    what instruments do you play and in what musical styles?

    I play the tin whistle (not a lot though, I should probably practice more), the uke, the musical saw and I sing (I'm actually taking opera singing lessons atm !) I mostly play jazz and blues by myself, but my awesome band Les Insortables...

    Alrigghht thanks everyone ! I haven't had the time to listen to a lot (any) of them because of christmas and everything but, can't wait !

    The struggle of Radical Parents with Patriarchy in a super sensitive millennial age where intrusive opinions & comments prevail.

    So as a 23yo cis woman who identifies as a feminist (and I did recognized myself in what you wrote), here's what I think. It is in no way an attack, and please keep in mind english is not my first language, and although I am more or less bilingual, the english language doesn't allow me to use...

    New to the forum, looking for advice on train hopping and hitchhiking

    Hi and welcome !! I find it very useful having an instrument on the road. I'd say, pick a small one. If it's your first time playing music, don't.pick.guitar. It's hard, big, and everyone plays it better anyways (the world doesn't need more guitarists, sorry guitarists). Having a string...

    Solo Female Travelers

    (disclaimer : I'm taking shortcuts writing "female" instead of non-transphobic terms. English is not my first language so just writing this level of concept is complicated to me) So I just found this thread using the search thingy, read it, and what I'll add might not be major but I'm female...

    Personal Thoughts After 9 Months of Traveling

    So I'm no expert but I'd say, do as you wish ? If you feel like you're getting tired of this lifestyle, try a new one. Nothing stops you from changing it again afterwards... To me it sounds it's an idea growing in your head, and you're not sure yet. Maybe give some time to that idea or talk with...

    I used to knit a bit too, especially while in transit, and here's my experience : I was used to get back home with the last tram in the city I lived but I had a correspondance and I would always see second tramway leave when my first got to the stop I was changing trams, so I'd have to wait for...

    I don't remember her name but she sang like an angel

    It was about two years ago, in New Orleans. I met this girl (hope they identify that way). I think she was blond, with short dreads that looked kinda fresh, and a face tattoo that said "fuck" (or "fuck it" or "fuck you" ??) above her eyebrow. She kinda looked like someone you wouldn't want to...

    selling recordings

    If people like what you're doing, they'll buy CDS. They are still a thing, especially since people buying CDs are those who have money, and generally they're older and used to CDs. Plus you can buy a CD and then put it on your laptop without any trouble. It's not the first time I hear about...

    Why don't you have sex?

    That is well said and that would be my reason too... I have had very little experiences that were actually good with sex and relationships, be it sexual or emotional, so I developed strong boundaries that don't allow people "in" (in both ways huehuehue). Now I crave for affection but any attempt...

    Seeking Ride Look for ride from Montreal to Vancouver

    Hey there ! There's a group on FB that's originally for québécois.es going to BC in both directions, but now there's a ton of people there and it's especially useful to get rides. It's called "Les BC's" I think you need an invite to get in though... If you need it PM me !!

    how do you deal with past abuse you have committed?

    Hey This is not a subject about which I open often, or easily, but the fact that you openly talk about having be an abuser and the fact that you're not a cis man (??? not 100% sure but if your picture is you then it would be surprising) makes stuff easier. I was a sexual abuser to my ex. We...

    Become A Trained Severe Weather Spotter: Easier than you think!

    This is so cool ! I wish I could do the thing just to be able to say "I am a storm chaser". So badass ! Do you think there's something similar in Canada ? Wouldn't it be logical that the two countries put their infos together as they're so close ?

    Bitches looking for hitches

    Unfortunately, females get rides easily for a reason. @saaage, you're right about being worried about your safety. However, if you're traveling with someone else you should be okay. I try avoiding hitching by myself but I really enjoy doing it if I'm with a friend. Here are my thoughts about it...

    What are the big differences between North America and Europe according to you ?

    My mom's from France and my dad's from Québec. I take it very personally when people say québécois is "not french", or a bastardized version of it. Most of the time you don't even realize you're just another person who thinks the language variation from France is more prestigious because of...

    What are the big differences between North America and Europe according to you ?

    Do you mean that cops in the USA are better than in Europe ? Cuz I really don't have a lot of experience with cops in the USA or even in North America but at least in France most of them are assholes. They will try and get you mad at them just to feel thery's powerful. That being said, cops in...

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    Duuuude it might be (hope it will be !) surprising for some people here but a good friend of mine and myself had this constant feeling while traveling the USA in a van (we're both french so it's pretty exotic)... We would drive for hours and suddenly be like 'yo dude - what - we're in the USA...

    Moments that made everything worth it?

    Traveling is awesoooommee, I've been doing it for a while as half my family is from Québec and the other one from France. One of the things I realized quite young was the smell : countries have a smell. Sometimes when I'm in France I'll get a draft of Québec, even if I haven't been there in a...

    @scattercat Thanks !! It might in fact be really useful. I was a bit concerned that english people wouldn't be big fans of french folks, but we will be coming from far and we will have some stories to tell, I bet. Anyway, we'll try and aim for the M6. That was something we were unsure of as you...

    What are the big differences between North America and Europe according to you ?

    What are the big differences between North America and Europe according to you ?

    I'm not so sure about that... Once again I speak mostly for France but I feel like here, you don't see those people who haven't really moved. They don't really "go out" and rarely interact with strangers, especially if those strangers don't speak french. And I have to say, I don't know a lot of...

It's not to decide which one is best, but only because I like to...
