Any of you ever thought about just leaving everything behind and not coming back?
I've been planning something like this for a few days now. My plan is to go to China.
A one-way flight from Amsterdam to Beijing will cost me about 380,- to 450,- euros depending on when I decide to leave. I've found a very cheap hostel as well, they only charge 7,- euros / night. The only downside is that you have to share the room with 5 others.
I'm thinking that if I save up around 2k, I can get around for about a month. I haven't really thought about what I will do next.
Why Beijing of all places, China is in the shitter right now and it's not like they're going to hire random white guys at most places
It just sounds like you want ro run away from your current problems without solving them to only find another set
good plan I say if you have willpower to make it work and aren't afraid of new things. Go for it.
The more education you have the better.
i plan to do something similar to this one I get my JD, though I havent even gotten my bachelors yet. I want to move to maine or vermont and sever all connections with my family. I feel like they don't want me to be around, and I don't particularly want to be around them. I think it'd be better for both myself and them if I were to just go away. I'm still in the early stages of planning this though.
I have no idea, somehow China is very appealing to me. Also, like I said, I've been in Beijing once and it's not as bad as you think. It's a very multicultural city.
Also, I don't have any problems currently. Except from maybe having little social contact with people. But I'm not going to do this because of that.
I feel exactly the same.
part of me would like to do this, however part of me feels like even if I did it wouldn't last long and I would fail. if I can't get a job and get things on the right track here, why would I suddenly be able to do it elsewhere?
you could also fail what you are doing right now. Don't think that failing is a bad thing.
This is fucking retarded. China is not the Netherlands. If you run out of money you will starve to death on the streets and no one will care.
Go bike around the south of France or something.
You wont last.
Ive been to hostels, its fucking dreadful. Hostels are for sleeping, unless you want to wander around for a month you wont have anything to do. Youll start missing your vidya and chinese cartoons 4 days into the stay.
You cant even speak chinese either.
Use the 2k in a meaningful way or plan a legit roadtrip.
Thanks for the (You), I really needed that one
for a while I have wanted to live in the woods. Thinking about building up enough skills and just leaving everyone to live and die in the woods. I know that I never will, but the idea has always been very attractive to me.
I've actually seriously thought about it.
I would move to the US, and I'd have to get a job there and a greencard or whatever so Obama doesn't lock me up at Guantanamo for takin' der jerbs.
I wouldn't tell anyone where I went, I would just disappear.
