Alright, /adv/. I never really come here, but /b/ is unresponsive. I want to go on an adventure. Maybe around Europe or Asia or America or anything. I'm just a little bit stumped on what to do. Suggest shit to me.
I'll heavily consider whoever rolls 17.
Travel, getting working visas along the way. Visit New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, China, Russia, and Western Europe. Get a train pass in Europe. Make sure to check out some Scandinavian countries and Austria.
You can travel abroad for the same cost as living in most parts of the US.
You stay at hostels. Hostels only cost like $10-20 USD a night. Assuming $15 of food a day and $20 accommodation and $5 misc expenses, you'll be able to save up $700 for your next airplane ticket in 30 days if you get a job that pays $8/hr.
Okay, then for a reasonable trip to just europe, for a month, you'll need to save up about 1400 for airfare, 600 for train, 400 for food, and 650 for board. So total being about $3000.
If you get a working visa in europe, it's a lot easier to save because you don't have to worry about rent/car insurance in America. Also the less often you have to travel by airplane, the more money you save.
Well, you can get a working visa in New Zealand for up to 12 months, iirc. Most other countries allow 3 months, which is enough time to save up to move on to the next.
You'll likely need about $7k saved up to get started though, and for emergencies. You can easily get that by saving for a few months and selling your car/crappy possessions.
One thing is for sure. When you're travelling, you definitely learn to pack light quickly, so sell as much stuff as you can before you leave.
If you don't use it at least once a week, you don't need it.
