How is sex seen in your culture? Only after marriage? If not, do people start having sex earlier or later than in Western culture?

Edit: does marriage even exist in traditional culture?

I’ll be completely honest: I’ve felt hardly any pain so far during the entire process.

To add on to this as someone who had the Nuss procedure: oh boy that was definitely not the case for me.

I've had great pain and twice felt like I might just die because I couldn't breath due to the pain. That's when they injected pain meds which did bring the pain to zero for a while.

It was a painful 8 or 9 days in the hospital. Recovery after was slow, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful. This despite a morphine epidural(?) In my spine the first few days.

I don't regret it, but know what you might be getting into.

Anyone who had braces put in might remember their teeth being sore for a day or two as they started working. Well the Nuss procedure is like that except it's a giant bar in your chest that changes everything in one go. Rather horrid.

I bet he uses his mom's meatloaf to test new toilets.

And the fact that this will make you a potential target to be annexed by a different larger country

What exactly are you expecting? Italy just annexing catalonia? This would be met with absolutely humongous backlash and in my mind it's unthinkable.

Eurorail has some advantages though. You can arrive 5 minutes before the train leaves. This makes travelling a bit more relaxed. The actual travelling time might be longer, but the fact that you don't have to be at an airport an hour or two beforehand can cut travel time drastically!

Airports are often also located outside of the city. Get off the train in any city and you're right at the heart of it. Getting of central station in Amsterdam for example is fantastic (and the station itself is also a work of art).

You can also bring more luggage with you on trains. A big backpack might be too big for what ryanair allows on the flight without having to pay extra.

Trains also tend to have normal departure times. Want to leave at 9 or 11 in the morning? No problem. Ryanair might have times at 5 in the morning, which can suck.

Also, traveling by train is beautiful. I traveled from Austria to Italy by train. The landscapes were fantastic, and me and my buddies had a booth to ourselves with seats that slides down to form a kind of bed.

Biggest pro of all: adaptability. Were you planning on leaving a city tomorrow morning but you suddenly meet some awesome people who you want to hang out with? No problem, take the train a day or two later! With an airliner you might already have your ticket booked..
