      Is it normal for hostels to be booked 6 weeks in advance?
      We are trying to find somewhere to stay in the Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen area for late July, and there is literally 1 hostel left that isn't fully booked.
      And airbnb's and hotels go for like $400/night so we can forget about those.

      it's kind of crazy - no other place in the world would be this hard to get accommodation

          The only downside of Ireland would be the drinking culture (I don't drink) and the fact that finding a flat there is next to impossible

      >t. moron who knows nothing about NL
      I lived in NL for years. Outside of Amsterdam and Rotterdam, NL is incredibly plain and boring. Dutch people strive to be as normal and ordinary as possible and end up as mindless clone drones. So, very quiet and nothing ever happens. If you lived in the countryside, you could find a nice little house and nothing would ever happen in your life.

      You can get away from cities in North America but you can’t really have a rural lifestyle here. For example, there are no villages and most of the farms are not small holds. You also have to drive all the time.

        False. You can live in the country just outside of a small town and ride your bicycle wherever you want.

          Of course you can. It’s not illegal to ride a bike. But the way people live is not really aligned with that. If you’ve ever lived in a small town in America you know exactly what I mean. There are no villages here. There are no towns that were once pre-modern farming communities. Most “rural” communities in North America are suburban style cul-de-sacs surrounded by corporate farms.

            Where do you live? I've found plenty of places full of small land owners from Pennsylvania to Missouri to Utah.

            >no villages
            What does this even mean? I swear if you respond with some autistic hyperspecific definition of a "village" that only a dozen places in the entire world could possibly satisfy, I will hunt you down.

              I assume he means something like pic related. Small walkable communities with your neighbours, shops, schools etc. in close proximity surrounded by rural landscape

                Those places are depressing as frick to settle in, or even to grow up in, if you happen to have shit neighbours.

                That is the worst of both worlds.

                In Germany it's like this, except they observe you from a distance and don't interact with you unless it's a forced interaction.

                And that's in the villages where they aren't openly hostile.

                If you get sincerely angry at the idea of people wanting to be able to walk places, you're stupid pleb trash with as little sense as taste. The only country people worth knowing have also had town houses for a thousand years at this point, and people who want to drive everywhere and be stuck in the country full-time are peasants.

    What about Italy? From what I’ve seen on YouTube, you can have a very quiet, traditional, rural life in Italy. I think the Italian government even subsidizes a lot of this lifestyle.

    Where do you live now, and what do you do/want to do? And when you say “quiet life,” what does that mean? Locals aren’t loud? Picturesque country village? Wilderness?

    I live in Switzerland (not EU, but still offers free movement with few restrictions if you carry an EU passport); it’s quiet in some respects but ridiculously expensive, and good luck finding somewhere in the countryside. You’re more likely to end up in an apartment building in a densely-built village center than on an isolated mountain farm unless you can spend millions. And expect hostile neighbors; rural Swiss people in particular hate immigrants. They don’t even like people from other cantons that much.

    You might have a better experience, and certainly a cheaper one, in a border village in Germany or France.

    What would you do for work OP? If it's internet-based, then that opens up a lot of places (but even in 2023, is not great in some rural areas), but if you want a job locally then that'll make things harder.

    Also, what budget do you have?

    Personally, I really like the way of life in Southern France. Somewhere in the Languedoc region where cost of living is low, but you have easy access to the coast or mountains.

    Looking at your selection... it appears you maybe like the cold and are used to snow already? Are you already in a cold climate country and want to stay further north?

    The problem I found with living in Germany is that I basically destroyed by social life by moving here, and never got anything comparable back.
    Germans do the whole socializing thing differently and it's extremely hard to break into, for a foreigner.

    The Netherlands was better on this front, but not by much. If you move to the non-sexy quieter cities in the Netherlands or Germany you will have the quiet life that you desire. But you might find it very isolating.

        I met Germans abroad for many years before moving to Germany. I was living in the Netherlands and there are many Germans living there. And the Germans, when they are abroad and they don't have German friends nearby, they are very friendly. So I naively expected the same experience.
        I was wrong.

        Oh well. I'm looking to move somewhere better now. I don't think I fit into this country anyway. I'm not German obviously, but I also do not fit into the Turkish/Arabic immigrant communities either, because I got nothing in common with them.
        Most expats in Germany are then Asian/Indian and a couple are Latinos, and again, I have nothing in common with them either.

        Ideally I would like to get an Australian or NZ VISA. I'm kinda sick of Europe.

    Honestly bro I think Poland might be good for this. I liked Poland because it seemed so clean and safe, not very much woke shit, people are decently friendly, food is pretty good. Seemed like a good spot to be married with some kids. Keep in mind though I’m a burger, to junkies being everywhere and streets smelling like piss if you’re in city topkek.

      As a resident of Switzerland who’s been to Suomiland, I’ve noticed that Finns are perhaps the quietest people on the street/on transit/in public anywhere in the world. Old Swiss people will lecture strangers to shut up on the trams, maybe even yell at them, but surprisingly few actually comply thoroughly. The “shut the hell up in public” rule applies to everyone but oneself; Swiss children and teenagers in particular are at heart almost always as loud and wild as kids elsewhere, and they prove it whenever they can get away with it.

      Finns seem to clam up instinctively.

      >can't flush toilet after 22:00
      This is almost never enforced IRL. And even Swiss people don’t comply.
      >many such laws around noise
      The only time real laws get invoked is for stuff like loud house parties—really public noise disturbances will definitely attract the cops. Stuff like household/apartment building noise rules about flushing toilets or showering late at night just makes your neighbors despise you, and has no real consequences apart from possible angry letters from landlord that could make it harder for you to get another apartment.
      >too expensive for hobos, schizoids, and druggies
      Mostly but not 100% true. There are winos and whackos in some of the city centers, but they’re almost never homeless and usually clear out at night. Less to do with prices and more to do with better social safety nets than in some countries.
