Ok so I made a post a few months back talking about a trip I've been planning around the world on practically no money.

Well I'm doing it! I'm in Venice Italy right now. I arrived super late and ended up just dropping 20 euro on a hostel because I've been hitchiking for 5 days and was to tired to hunt down a squat in the dark.

I've been couch surfing and wwoofing as well as busking some street art. I make those outer space scense with spray paint that the tourists fucking love. On a good day I make like 20 euro. Even on my worst day I make 5-10 euro ( i keep writing euro because my pc dosent have a euro button because it was made in murica and im to lazy to look up the ascii code.)

Ive met tons of cool people from various walks of life.

The other night I pitched my tent in a traffic circle on the highway that had a lot of bushes. I got bored and wandered to the gas station where i met some homeless chick who was waiting for a ride and we hung out and she shared this huge ball of hash with me, i gifted her with a painting.

I'll write more detailed adventures and post cooler pics in the future. But right now i have to take my first shower and a shave in a week. I look like shit.

Pic is me and some distraught locals who hosted me for a week.

Sounds like fun, OP.

When you say "hit the road" do you mean "go driving" or "go hitchhiking"? In the first case, get a thicker sleeping bag and you'll have just as much fun as you would in warmer months. In the second case, fuck that unless you plan on going south fast.

Ok guys sorry for the long content gap.

I've been traveling all over northern Italy, speaking my terrible and broken American accented Italian.

One thing I'll say about Italy is that the internet sucks balls. Most people still have DSL if any thing and if they live in even a slightly rural place its satellite. Thats if they even have internet at all.
Even when some one has the internet they either have a connection slower than 5mps or it's capped at a certain data limit. Sort of like buying minutes on a cell phone in the 1990s.

I finally have a moment alone to use the internet and browse 420 for the first time in months with a semi decent internet connection.
So of course that means immediately after making this post im going to watch as much pornography as my computer can handle.

So the update and my story so far.

I bummed around Milan a bit and few other towns near buy doing couch surfing, woofing and busking my art on the streets (which has improved alot since I've started my trip.)
I met tons of cool peoples and even made out with a 19 y/o.

I came to Venice for a wwoofing job via hitching (the main way I get around this country when not riding black on public transport*) but hitching in north italy is hard. It's not common even in the least (people tell me it's better in the south, but I haven't been yet). So I arrived a week late to my job and they didn't want me any more.

I then wandered around Venice for a day broke, hungry and tired.
In my wanders I heard a strong Bostonian accent coming from a restaurant promoter. The dude was like 45 and walked me to a hot meal and bed at a place callec "Youth Venice Palace".

Those are the 3 worst words I've come to know in my entire life.
It's run by this 50 y/o Persian dude who's an ex punk, who's a fucking mad man who we will call Nino.... because that's his name.

Sounds cool right?

You walk in the door and it's full of art and eclectic bullshit to lure you into the trap of slavery that awaits.
He's like your cool uncle who smokes pot and is liberal.....but did way to many extreme drugs too often in his youth and has a brain like a fried egg.

He then trucks us up to a fucking mountain where he bought a €125,000 house that's about a 30 min bus ride from any place any one wants to actually be.

Before buying it he saw it once in the dark and there was no electricity.
It's been sitting abandoned for 10 years, and it shows.

I've worked for a month for Nino up on Mt. fucking doom. He doesn't pay us, but we get weekends off in Venice and a place to stay.

At first I was desperate for the 3 hots and a cot. But he makes us work like rented dogs, then calls us on our days off to run errands in Venice (which interrupts my busking). He then gets us in debts. Usually for needing euros for busking supplies or food on the weekends.

I'm attempting to separate my self from this but there's not many places to squat in Venice in the Winter where you won't freeze.

But outside the indentured servitude I currently live, Venice is great.
Especially if you have money.
In fact come here and buy some of my art so I don't starve. I'm the Jewish looking kid selling paintings of space scenes and begging for pennies with the tall Lithuanian drummer and the short ass metal head Australian who plays a tiny guitar. You'll see around.


*Riding black means to ride with out any tickets, which I've been doing all over Italy. Usually at night the water bus in Venice they dont give any fucks but a friend of mine got a €65 fine for doing it. I only got away because I pretended to be from Mexico and had no passport, despite being a Jewey jewerson looking mother fucker with an American accent which netted me no fine. The Bonus though is that you can say you're any one from any where if you claim to have no documents or ID and they still write the ticket which goes to no one and no where.

James Mother Fucking Randi !lwriJ94kMg - Wed, 23 Dec 2015 13:01:43 EST ID:0EwjLw+m No.33219 Ignore Report Quick Reply
yeah I do!

After learning the best days to busk and the rhythm of police and their patrols I've ended up making quite a bit of money.

Fridays are the best, I make nearly €50 a day on fridays not including what i spend on food and cigs.

But most of the rest of the days we make like 15-20 at most.

The biggest caveat of that is the police.

Even on a really good day the police are real hard asses on buskers and can really fuck up your game. I had a cop come up and try to arrest me in the middle of selling a painting and I just ran away leaving all my shit behind (it was just paints and paintings). But other than that one attempted arrest ive had little problems with the police.

My current housing is a huge complex of abandoned buildings near venice that I squat with about 12 other people. Mostly chill ass african refugees.

I got invited to lithuania for chrismas but it'd bankrupt me to travel there then back to italy. So Im staying here till new year (got invited to like 12 parties) then heading to probably sicaly till feburary when I'll return to Venice for Carnival to make a huge sum busking. Then after that Im going to parts unknown.

I've done this too OP, twice, and both experiences greatly shaped who I am today. The first time I hitch-hiked from Norway to Spain, leaving my home country with nothing but a €5er, some clothes and my fiddle. The second time (again with no money) I hitched from Finland (through Estonia) to Spain, and then back into Switzerland, then back into Spain.

Both times I survived by hitch-hiking, sleeping outside, squatting, couchsurfing, stealing, busking with the fiddle for money, etc. Immensely difficult at times but overall two amazing experiences that changed my life for the better. Where are you from?

Im from Florida. Its pretty easy and relativity safe to hitch in the us if you're a citizen. But it can be dangerous for foreign people because alone of people in the us are xenophobic (not all though) and if you are there illegally avoid the police like the plague. Busking is semi difficult in the us. Im in venice still. Come team up with me /have hobosexual relations with me.

I've never hitch hiked because you just get homo truckers who pick you up judging from what everybody I met told me. What you do is you save enough money to get to Europe, from there you can take dirt cheap plane fare to almost anywhere else in Europe/Asia. Dirt cheap as in EasyJet to Greece or Spain for 20 GBP on standby flights.

My friends all bummed their way through Europe by working in bars. UK will hire anybody to pour beer and you just save the money. They got these jobs by wandering in, asked if any P/T help was needed in the kitchen, then one day the bartender doesn't show up and you become the bartender.

So i ended up going to Florence instead where i stayed in a "squat/occupation zone". It had water and electricity. The main focus of the place was art. We had a huge party where we had tons of artist including myself paint the whole inside with crazy awesome shit.
I met a cool chuck and finally got laid in Europe.
We were supposed to meet today and travel together for a bit but she never showed up. I hope it was my monster cock that scared her away and just my personality.
Well im broke and out of paint now, so im waiting on a train to take me to some friends house in the north to be hosted for a bit. Hopefully i can sell some paintings or borrow some cash from someone to get more paint for carnival.

I wrote the above last night and couldn't post it due ti weird web filters.

I traveled from Florence to varese with no ticket l. A little over 300km. I had no problems until the very end when on super hard ass ticket controller kicked me out a few stops from my destination. I managed to catch the next train tho ug if like an hour later. It was empty, which is sort of creepy.

Currently im chilling at some good friends house in Varese. Im broke so there isn't a whole lot to do here. Im just relaxing and waiting till carnival with sone occasional busking. Im really luck it hasn't snowed much while ive been in italy, I hate the snow.
The last two weeks ive gotten like no weed.

After carnival in theory ill have enough cash to just about any where.
If you want to donate or buy a painting (ill have to figure out how to ship it since it can't be rolled up and writing do not bend means fix all to non english speaking postal workers) let me know via the above link.

So after Carnival I'm going to Bologna to visit some friends.
It's 5 people, but there's one girl who is pretty amazing. I'm not used to girls thinking I'm interesting at all back in the States (Im generally a NEET who plays video games all day) so it totally flew over my head that she was interested.

Then after that another friend in Vienna wants to host me in her flat for a week or so.

One thing this trip has done is make me feel 100x more confident in my self in all aspects.
More confident with women, more confident in my self to get things done, more confident in my problem solving and survival skills.

I hope I'm able to continue this trip for as long as possible and see as many countries and people as possible.

Wish me luck in carnival guys.

I'm in Florence again. It's alot easier than Venice. I have a place to stay with food, electricity and hot water. It's an occupation zone/ squat I stayed at about a month ago or so.
It's pretty good here but busking is hit or miss. One day I'll make 30 euro and the next 4.

So last night I made it as far as Mestre (the mainland city out side venice). And it's a sketchy mother fucking place.
I found a tip on hitch wiki that told me about a secluded place to pitch a tent.
It was a vacant feild blocked from view by a noise barrier wall thingey for the trains and the highway.

I slept alright and woke up not dead. But when I got out of my tent there were two dudes near by.

They approached me I put my hand in my pocket on my multi tool incase i had to punch a nigga.
Well we talked for a moment and when I said I was traveling to austria they changed up their game and started claiming to be "European police"...pffff....they both even went so far as to show me the upper corner of their romanian IDs for a second each.....yeah right.....
I called them out on it and they started asking me all sorts of questions about my gear......yeah police......riiiiiiiight.

So i reach into my tent and pull out this

And stand there.
They said there was now magicaly no problem and that I should have a good day and left.
I packed up my shit while I watched a distant junkie shoot up in this feild.

I walked to the station where I see the same two chuckle fucks loitering about (probably looking for bags to steal or wallets to lift). So I stoped and stared at them until they left about 30 seconds later. I even contemplated finding the cops to tell em what was up. But I ended up just boarding my train and heading out.

Im about to walk to the high way and try and hitch into austria. Wish me luck guys.

Wow dude that's intense. If I may make a suggestion borrowing and possibly misquoting this - "weapons are for feeling not seeing"

Doubly so in a foreign country where the local government is more inclined to defend their own citizens. It's a sad reality but pulling out something like a shovel as a threat in a tense interaction could very well get you killed if they have weapons too!

Sorry I don't mean to lecture, but if u can next time ur in a situation like that keep the weapon concealed and accessible and only pull it out if you plan on landing a few disarming blows within half a second of them realizing you have it.

Sounds like you're journey is picking up some more distance now, may there be a road for you!

I made it to where I was going (Vienna). But en route I got a really bad cold. But thankfully I was able to sleep all day and recover a bit. Still sick but feeling much better after laying in bed recovering most of the day and trying to get better.

The weather today was a bit nippy but a clear with only a few small clouds in the sky. Would been perfect to busk but I felt like death most of the day slept through it.

I'm so happy I have good friends who wouldn't turn out a stray dog in a rain storm so to speak. If I was on the road this sick I may have had to check into a medical clinic or find a couch surfer host.

I keep telling myself to get a sleeping mat but I always convince myself I won't need it, thanks for the heads up because I can feel the regret already

Man that's so fucking cool, I envy the freedom you've allowed yourself.
Have you thought of heading to France and working in the grape fields? So many wineries out there look for travelers to work in their fields and a lot of them will let you use their land to camp on, provide you with food and a shower plus you make some money.
My buddy and I are going to pick cherries in BC Canada to start ourselves off, pick cherries in the morning and chill by ocean at night until the seasons over, then we're gonna take that money and hitchike somewhere we can stay the winter (fuck the snow man)

My only issue is how the fuck do you prevent chafe from walking long distances? I usually start getting chafe on my ass after walking for a few days and it puts me out of commission.
I talked to some fat chicks that told me deodorant is an old trick for it but it only lasts so long, I don't to look like a psycho deoderanting my ass on the side of the road with my thumb out trying to get a ride know what I'm saying?

so busking today. And some guy stops and looks at my paintings. Then he asks if I know about the earth being flat.
I then say, "Why of course it is, every one knows that. But where the real truth is is in the hollow earth. Do you know 1 out of 5 people are actually reptilian human hybrids"?
In a flustered tone he says "You're talking nonsense! Reptilians aren't real"!
He then storms off.

It was sleeting (frozen rain) a bit today but I went busking any way. I first tried a slightly less crowded spot under some cover. While i was setting up a pretty rough looking beggar woman set up like 20m away. I made one painting and made abour 4 euro.
I packed up after that and gave her 2 euro. She looked like she needed it. She gave me a big smile.

I then decided to go to my ussual spot on the east side of stephanplaz (shwenplatz). Along the way I notice there are no other buskers in the area your supposed to have a permit to busk there. So I did it there (right in the middle of stephanplatz for those keeping score). I made like 25 euro but the weather drove me out.

There were some chinese tourists who were really into my show/ painting and kept tipping me. Then asked since they tipped so much if they could get a discount. I agreed. They wanted my fresh and still super wet painting. I told them to wait for it to dry first. They paid me and said they would come back.

I stayed for about 30ish more minutes making paintings that would never dry in the weather today. The chinese people never came back so i left all my wet paintings on a cardboard box i was using to paint on and wrote free art on it and left.

Im using a friends lap top thats from like 1999 and it runs slow even on this site. If you check out my facebook blog or dig through the photo dump a bit theres some in there.

I'm heading out in May to *indefinitely* travel the road.

I've ponied up a small amount of cash to throw into some gear. I hope to hitch as little as possible but there of course will be a fair amount whether I want to or not. Hitching trains or cars and shit. Starting in Atlanta, going to work up to probably the NE states. May hop over into Canada just to say I did it and then I'm heading completely West to Seattle/Portland or there abouts. I may check out slab city and spend the winter moving across the Southern states. I really want to see Hell's Half Acre but I don't know how plausible that will be.

Hope to hit Atlanta by next April again but I've no idea how fast I can move around places.

Already got some new shoes, a set of clothing, a pack and a basic set of tools. Need some tent/shelter deal and sleeping gear plus maybe some emergency food/rice and a set of cooking utensils. I'm trying to go as light as possible because I know I will dump half that shit down the road and I would be better just carrying the extra 50-100 dollars.

Two biggest decisions I am fighting with is should I take a guitar and a bike. I don't want to afford maintenance on a bike or the down cost but it gives you a fucking shitload more options and freedom. You can't trainhop with a bike tho. At least not very well. I only have a standard cheapo electric guitar. Busking with it wouldn't likely be possible because it is too quiet and it is big and heavy. I don't want to drop the money into a travelers guitar and it is robbery magnet too. I'd like it as a self-improvement tool or as a fun thing to do when down on the road.

If you don't already have an acoustic guitar, then forget about it. That money can be better spent elsewhere to aid your travels. Do not bring anything you are not willing to lose. People will steal your guitar. A bicycle can make travel much easier, but is bulky. There are foldable bicycles that you can buy, so if you need to hitchhike you could easily throw it in the trunk. However I have no experience with foldable bikes so I don't know if they're any good. A guy who hitchhikes on youtube named hitchtube uses a foldable bike in some of his videos.
>uke or banjo
ukeleles are for faggots and Hawaiians. Banjos are cool but if you want anyone to hear it you're going to need a banjo with a large resonator. My banjo weighs 10-15 pounds, and while it is very loud, this is obviously not ideal for travel. An acoustic guitar is pretty lightweight and loud, and it's easy to find strings and accessories for it.

leave the bike. its gonna get stolen.

Esential gear:

>Good back pack
I recomend teton brand since their the cheapest ones ive found and of suprisingly good quality.

>Bivy tent or 2 man tent. the extra space in a 2 man is nice. I hate my bivy

>Sleeping rated to 32f or lower depending on the season. Mines rated for 32f 0c Even though mine is bulky Its litterally saved my life before.
I got my sleeping bag also from teton

>sleeping mat

>durable compact water container



>First aid kit

>small ass camping cooking shit

>Good multi tool


>Camera thats not on a phone to take cool pics for your thread when you start traveling.
I have it and love it. Its replaced needing to cary just about any tools for survival and self defence.

>since its the

>Rechargable light source

Optional gear id recomend
I bought a little solar pannel the size of a thin paper back book that charges any thing usb. Id highly recomend it. they sell em on amazon for ok prices

if you read alot get an Ebook reader, i got a kindle paper white. It hardly uses any power and i put 1000's of books and music on it. it helps fill the time and you can pirate books.

emergency beacon if your going to remote places alot. Not super important to have. but if you break your leg or get attacked by a bear its good.

Extra optional is maybe a compact lap top or small tablet

I don't really have the cash to throw into another musical instrument. Maybe a cheap as fuck harmonica maybe?

I didn't really intend to use a guitar for busking. More as means to maintain sanity and work on my self/skills. I've never used a folding bike and it still seems like the same problems of a regular bike without the need to keep it on a smiley.

I figure the bike and guitar are crime magnets.
I don't doubt their practicality but I am a bit skeptical on using one in less than legal places. Seem really obvious compared to a couple camo'd tarps and shit. I guess they make camo tents though? I'm going to be in the US and there are plenty of places no too friendly to tent pitchers AHUE. Or so I read anyways. Avoiding Utah and Florida specifically because of what I have heard.

I've heard the most important piece of gear is a camera and a knife/multitool and I don't doubt it. I have a Leatherman Wave, a Gerber Suspension and a Leatherman Skeletool currently. I prefer the Wave but I have thrashed it after just having it for like 2 years. It is literally unusable now, I need to get it RMA for free but I don't know that I truly trust it. I know in everyday life how fucking incredible that bastard has been. I can only imagine on the road what importance it will have.

I'm going to be doing this without much tech as well. I won't have a phone, tablet/laptop or satphone/lifealert or anything like that. I will take a shitty MP3 player and a digital camera but that is likely are far as tech is going to go. I've been cursed to have literally every digital item get #rekt in merely days of use so I've never put any money into that shit. I'd just end up busting it to hell somewhere or throwing it off a train.

I also already have a Kelty pack. I've read they are pretty fair.

I never used my Suspension because it was way too stiff. Like all multitools. Suppose it couldn't hurt to carry both. Leatherman went from a 25 year warranty to lifetime no questions asked. Maybe I got a lemon because everyone is blown away how beat to shit my Wave is. I should send it in because the research department would like to look at it according to some gear nerds.

I'd personally not mind an Ereader since living out of libraries would kinda suck and be too stationary for whole books probably but it is something I will think about.

Since you have been out, what is the most unexpected thing you didn't think you would face? What has been the most useful piece of gear you have used? And finally, how much has the experience changed you as a person?

not an unexpected thing that thappened. But going broke or near broke a few times in italy sucked. Ussually Id borrow money and then buy busking stuff then pay the person back or smoke em out or get them drunk at the pub.

Most usefull gear is my bag, my sleeping bag, tent and my phone i guess. The phone is mainly for maps and translations on the fly for new languages for me. and I pirate tv shows on it.

I'm not mad about it at all. They think homeless=death so I can understand their difficult time to cope with it. I'm pretty excited though. Just now under 1 month left.

update on whats been going on.
Yesterday I made no money busking in 4 hours and today i made 40 in like 45 minutes and then called it quits for the day.

So i stayed in a squat for a week and it was all chill.
But there was a meeting i was supposed to attend on monday to stay longer. I totally brain farted and thought the meeting was today......so they gave me 2 days and asked if I would leave after that. But a friend messaged me and offered to let me crash on his couch for a week or so. But its only a one bed room flat and he has exams and classes going on all the time.
So I also have some other people lined up i met in a hitchhiking fb group, but have not met in real life.

Were gonna get coffee this week some time to meet but he already offered me 2 weeks with him and his gf in his one bed room flat after this.

I also met 2 really hot goth chicks this week who both told me explicitly that Im hot...which never happens to me in the US. Im gonna go smoke wtith one probably this friday.
They both seem a bit crazy I probably wouldnt date but might be fun for a minute.

Also sorry for so many typos. Im using a german pc with german autocorrect and a german keyboard lay out. So im typing all downsy.

You can work in bars too you know. Most of my friends would work a pub and stay above it for free rent/board as part as the deal. None of them had citizenship and just walked in and offered services for cash off the books.

Sheeeit. 3 weeks before I depart. Starting to get hype. Still have a lot of loose ends to rap up though. I'm compiling a humongous supply of music for the journey. I may end up spending another 60 dollars on MP3 players. Again. I should have just bought the 64gb ones instead of a bunch of the cheap 8gb ones. At least I can just switch them around when they start all dying.

My shoes fucking suck too. I've been getting acclimated to being on my feet all day and I need to get some better shoes. I've heard Keens or Redwings are good. No idea on price. I've still got to get all my gear but I'm not worried about money. I've got 500 left for buying shit. I'll probably only spend 200 of that on gear though. Since most of that shit is probably going to get busted or stolen. Hitching out of GA is going to be difficult. It is illegal here along with spanging apparently.

I don't think I will make it into Europe. I don't really care to see Europe and it would cost a pretty penny just getting there. Plus I don't have a passport or anything.

I'll make a separate thread a couple days before I leave for questions or whatever and once I have gear. It feels very weird having so much of my shit wrapped up. I'm so used to living knowing there is a bunch of shit to take care of before I do anything. Now that most of that is cleared out, I have this weird ass feeling of being completed and ready for a new life? Strange vibes.

Nice job bro, good to hear all is well. I was going to leave out today but I got this fucked canker sore on my leg or something weird. :/ It is bruising up pretty good now so I think it will fuck off in a couple days.

I've heard that some sections of vienna are hardcore squatter territory with entire apartments blocks abandoned. Is that true? A bud I know says it was pretty sketchy later at night.

>What are your end goals if you are closing in on them?
Knowing I have something to work towards has greatly uplifted my spirits. Aside from a slight postpone. I'm advancing with my music way faster than I ever have. In college I spent 6 months going fucking nowhere. I've done more in the past month than I did then with shit I thought would take me months to learn being cleared in a day or two.

im bored sorry if this is over posting...also im using a friends german phone with no e glish auto correct. excuse typos.
but to answer this better.
wjere i come from im a total beta NEET who can hardly hold a job, had few friends, was depressed, couldnt afford collage. no gf hardly ever. hardly ever get laid either. there are like no jobs so you take what ever shit job you find. and theres 1000 filled in job in job applications on tje bosses desk. so if you fick up xoure fired.
but i lived in a small town. i did have a few close friends there. and had good times. but over all it id say it was more negitive than positive living there.
the people where i come feärom are mostly rednecks or stoners. but the nature is dome tje best in the world imo.

now that im in vienma and making more miney on average than my fucking parrents but cost of living here is too high to rent a flat. but i feel the path to getting propper papers here and a job/learning german is super do able.
And with these things i can pursue my hobbies, intrests and intelectual shit freely here and live a much better life for a few years mabey.
then in a few years go some where else.

follow up random thoughts cause im high af.
weed here is cheap and eassily bought every where and varries in quality from mexicsn ditch weed to 2 grams if like dank and is tollerated but still illegal. its more open and tollerated in italy bit more expendive there.
im begining to for get some italian but im planning a short visit there this summer. but on the flip soe now i can understand some spoken gemran and now i can also read it some what like a child.
cant speak it worth a shit.
still can speak ok italian.
met my gfs mom. she hates me.....lets just say its due to being a dirty hobo from the us and thefes a bit of an age difference between us.

ive been living in a smsll party flat for a month and a bit of couch surfing. its free but gets old fast.
all the more motivation to get some papers.

currently im allowed 90 days with no papers. but i cant work. but the boarders are so open tjeres no way to controll/enforce it. plus im whiteish and got a us passport.

the standard of living is super high in austria. and its the highest in vienna. more reason to stay. i made 120 euro busking the other day in 2 hours. but then spent it all on cigs, esting out, my gf, booze, weed, paint, etc.

the gov here will give me money temporarilly while i "intigrate" into austrian society.
outside vienna and the few otjer big citties its all county side and looks like tavinana from original dayZ.

amy more questions?

most of the time, in my experience, grocery stores toss perfectly good fish/meat to make room for new stock all the time. as long as it's picked out shortly after it's tossed, and cooked&consumed within a few hours, it's perfectly fine.

Why not stealth camp?

You can set up a really good base camp in recently cleared areas because the foliage is so dense after something is clearcut, you can be hidden just 20 feet in.

I set up a 20x20 green tarp just 40 feet from a really upscale neighborhood and nobody knew I was there. You can slip in and out fast and quietly too plus hide your gear.

Hey I'm still alive.

Sorry for the long content gap.

I'm still living in Vienna and because I haven't been traveling I haven't updated much.

But a few things worth posting about happened.
I got a dog sitting job for 100 bucks a week twice a month for the next 3 months.
I broke up with my gf.
I found an abandoned house in the city that's well hidden. It pretty clean inside too and had a bed in it already that was wrapped in plastic.
It's been abandoned a little over a year now. It has two fireplaces and a wood burning stove.
There is a toilet but it needs to be fixed first.

It has no power or water.
I even found many of the keys to lock the place up.
I'd like to get a solar pannel + small wind turbine for some power. And there's a public water pump thing down the street at the park.

With a gas burning stove plus my wood burner I'm set with everything except a hot shower in my own house

I had one of these things once, it was okay-ish. The pump turned out to be of poor quality and it ate batteries. Also, it wouldn't heat the water in "real time", I would have to recycle water through it using a bucket.

It seems that one could heat a metal bucket full of water up, stick a hose with a sprinkler attachment of some sort in the bucket, haul the bucket up a tree with a rope and have a fairly effective shower that would cost next-to-nothing to put together.

Ok so I got access to a computer and can make a real update.
Sorry if it seems a bit different than my normal writing style, it's 3:30 and im a bit sleep deprived.

So I went to the rainbow gathering on the Slovenian boarder. I don't think I've smiled more in such a short period of time ever in my life before.
It started when I hosted a traveling girl in my flat for a night, then the next night another girl arrived. They didnt know each other but were both going to gathering. They kept trying to convince me to go and I kept going "Nah I got stuff to do tomorrow", but then over the course of the night they convinced me to go.

So I went with about €8 in my pocket. We hitched from Vienna to the gathering over the course of about 2 and a half days. Normally it'd take a day but we got unlucky.
One night we were near the Italian/ Austria boarder and passing out. So we asked permission to sleep infront of a gas station at a rest stop so that we could put our hitching sign up. Some really nice dude bought us 4 beers and some sandwiches, that was nice.
But about at 6am some rude lady woke us up saying "This is not a place for sleeping".
We kept asking if she worked there because we asked permission to sleep here, she refused to answer the question and then threatened to call the cops on us, so we cut our losses and gtfo.

We ended up getting a ride all the way to Udine (close to our destination) by a nice Austrian guy. H e said we were the first hitch hikers he'd ever picked up.
Along the way my two travel partners ended up falling asleep, so out politeness I stayed awake and continued to talk to the driver.
He asked me to teach him some italian. In my sleep deprived insanity I decided to teach him some swear words.
I offended the guy.
He wanted to drop us off on the side of the high way, I begged him not to and drop us at the next exit, he had to pay a total €14 to exit the highway and drop us off and get back on. Were probably the last hitchhikers he'll ever pick up.

We finally made it to the village near the gathering in Italy. We weren't able to get a ride and walked about 10km until some nice locals picked us up and took us as far as our map (which we got from another hitchhiker who got it from a dutch dude, so the map was in dutch) showed us. But it took us to some weird mountain road with a B&B at the top. They tried to drive us in their tiny shitty car down this old WW2 military road untill we had to refuse and walk the final 5ish km through the mountain. We finally arrived late at night and set up camp.

I ended up setting up my tent in a place that was next to the river that slowly collected more and more people.
We eventually built up a sort of cafe made from stone and mud, we even built bench seats in.
We would stay up to the wee hours of the morning singing songs, making coffee and cooking food.
We called it the rockery cafe.
I met an amazing set of weird people there.

At the main fire they would have a thing called the talking circle every night. A talking circle is when a fairly serious topic is chosen like depression, or dreams, or some thing like that. A stick is passed around and only the person with the stick can talk. It was very intimate and pretty intense.

But after a few days latter in the Rockery we started having story circle. Where we would choose a light hearted topic and share our stories related to it.

The last few days I was there I got offered to do some MDMA with my friends and one girl I didn't know super well. We all hung out by the river deep in the forest and made tea all day and shared stories, songs, personal things, etc. It was amazing.
I ended up continuing to hang out with the girl over the next few days and getting really close.
Then the end of the rainbow started to approach and I found a ride home with some one who happened to live right down the street from me.
The girl from the mdma day asked to come with me.
On the way back we stopped at a gas station at like 3 am, we were all tired and grumpy until one of my friend cranked up the radio and started dancing.
Then we all started dancing mostly naked and barefoot in an austrian gas station parking lot.
We kept shouting " BIG DANCE PARTY OVER HERE" in german at people, no one joined :(
This revitalized us, full of new energy we returned to vienna.

I hosted like 6 people from rainbow in my flat for a few weeks including MDMA girl.

We ended up becoming extremely close and falling for each other hard.
We ended up spending nearly all of our time together over the next few weeks.
But for various reasons she had to go back to portugal to deal with some things.
We had an extremly emotional good bye this morning. It's been years since some thing like this effected me so deeply. I really hope to have her at my side again some day hitching down the road into adventure. I think I will but it'll probably be some time.

Side note: i ended up getting extremely sick from rainbow because sanitation wasn't properly set up. I was the sickest I had been in possibly 10 years. I shit out all the liquid in my body over the course of about 4 day. I nearly went to the hospitol.

AMA about rainbow

I may update this more latter when im less tired with things I forgot.

the only time I live outside is when actually traveling between places or when I just arrive in a new city where I don't know any one yet.

Now that Ive been traveling for about a year I know so many people in so many countries that I have at least one contact just about in every european country and many places beyond.

Two paintings i did recently.

I found 2 big peices of counter top wood in the trash and painted them in super detail over the space of about 45 min for each one.
This is compared to paintings i normaly do in 10 minutes because im selling a show as well as paintings.

I tried to sell them for more than I ussualy charge. No one bought them so I donated one to the store I buy all my paints at and the other to a friend.

Decided to make a detour to the Czech republic to meet a friend of my traveling partner. So far this place is cool. Every one on the street stares at us. Gonna try some busking soon.
On the way here we got stuck at a rest stop for a day and starved. But just before we got a ride we managed to dumpster like 15lbs of food from the dumpster.

Homeless people don't really get robbed often. Also, targets of robbery are a specific type of person. If you carry yourself different than some twiggy hipster wearing expensive clothes and looking at your phone then entire time you're out, you're far more likely to get robbed because I could just run up to you, snatch your shit while you are looking and your phone and run away with my back to you so you don't ever even see me.

News media also reports robberies every night in a city so 2 people get robbed it seems like an epidemic when it isn't. Also, OP probably runs around with smileys or some other shit so nobody with any sense if going to fuck with him. Especially if he is in a group of rough homeless adventurer kids.

>My question for OP at this point, you feeling the road catching up to you yet? What do you plan on doing after your body starts letting you down?

oh yeah i almost got deported 5 minutes after entering the city!

I was hitching in a car and we got pulled over. They checked my visa, which ussualy never happens. They are mainly checking im not a wanted criminal and i am who I say i am on the passport.

This time they checked my visa. They said I could be arrested and then I told a lie about being out of europe in serbia but there was no boarder control. They seemed to beleive the story.
After like 5 min of waiting a cop came back the car and asked if I remembered him. It turned out it was a cop I had sold paintings to last year whike busking in a super akward way where he had money in his hand and shook my hand while I slipped him some paintings and a few other cops blocked our view from the crowd .....like a drug deal.

He said not to worry and hed protect me.

2 minutes later they came back with documents and wished me a good evening!

I think I used up all my luck because I'm pretty sure that is the only cop on the whole planet i even sort of know.
The odds of seeing him again were tiny.
Now Ill never win the lottery.

Well right now the weather is shit, so not alot.

But normaly I wake up around noon if i plan to go busking because i generaly start around 2pm on a busy tourist street.

I'll do that until I feel Ive made enough money for the day or the tourists go home.
Then either I chill at home or I go out and hang with frineds, dumpster dive, go to shows, go to parks, what ever.

Some times I just dont go busking and do what ever or sleep all day or take drugs etc.

When Im on the road most of the day is spent trying to get a ride or riding in cars with mixed table diving at road side resturants and diving rest stop dumpsters.

Some times if im in a new city i just go out and walk around and look at stuff, talk to people, you know human things.

Dunno if they have them in Europe but housing construction sites in suburbs are great places to hide out. There is usually densely overgrown saplings and shit on the outskirts which was so dense, people can't see you moving or your gear and overnight you can shelter in the houses and be out by 4-5am when crews show up to work on them.

The Mexicans here will usually never say anything if they do catch you sleeping over. Mexicans usually show up later too but work through the whole day. White/black crews leave at like 2-3pm but get there at the crack of dawn.

A bit more about my average day.

If I'm stationary in a city I wake up around noon, coffee, joint, ciggarete, poop.
Then I chill till around 1 or so and head out, and either go the various art supply stores i need for the days busking.
I may grab breakfast on the way.
Then busk for about 4-9 hours depending on weather, how much money I'm earning, my mood.
Then if I have a host I usually stop at the weed man then go home to chill. I'm not so much into going out and partying these days.
If I don't have a host then I have to find a mcdonalds or starbucks with accessible outlets (for some reason public electrical outlets, toilets, trash cans and other normally free and public things are in short supply) and charge my phone and various batteries i carry.
Then I go to where ever Im camping that night and set up camp and chill the night away.
I busk about 2-5 days a week. This week the weather is shit so Ive only been once this week.

I ran out of food and cash on the last day and a half. I made it to Bern on 0% energy, just sort of limping along like a corpse.
I was walking to my hosts house when I stopped in a park to rest. I saw some barefoot dudes having a joint. I chatted them up and they gave me some sandwiches and shared some joints. I slept in their camp and played with all their animals and smoked like 20 more joints.

Just spent like an hour reading this entire thread, dude you're on a fucking journey well done.

You asked for questions a while back so I'll ask an obvious one, any advice on travelling?I've certainly learn't a lot here already.

I got a temp job till September where I am now and tbh I can already see my future and it fucking scares me, so doing something like you're doing might be the right path.

Also I know of a legit kung fu instructor I used to train under in highschool, I could go back to doing that to learn how to defend myself if thats something could be needed.

Not the kind of guy who looks for fights, never even been in a real one before, would much rather run away but do you think it might be a good idea to learn anyway, just in case.

Also I think learning the harmonica would be a good idea, its such a lightweight instrument.

Biggest advice, learn a buskable talent.
Begging is for retards, I've never begged.

But on that mention, the laws in Bern on busking are extremely ambiguous at best and in conflict with each other at the worst.
So last year I was deported and robbed by the cops (illegally) for busking.
Now I asked permission from the cops, they said it was cool. Then the next day different (plain clothes cops) said it was illegal with out a permit. The permit office said the permits only apply to music and besides costs 50 fucking Swiss francs a god damned day. Then lastly the law online says its legal except on Sunday's or on certain streets and if you make too much noise.

The kicker is begging is 100% A ok.

Update on the gayness of Switzerland:
So my busking is 100% legal, but one under cover cop keeps harassing me. I went to the police station to report him, but I didn't write his name down because I a faggot, next time he harasses me he claims he will deport me. The other cops said if he does this to demand he calls his superior, but I'm skeptical this will work.
I'm in the process of getting a motorized leter from the city to defend my self but the level of beuracracy behind this is astronomical.
I've been chilling with the hippies in the forest mostly since I can't busk.
My graffiti on the legal graffiti wall was literally erased and painted over with the same color as the wall background. So this means either the city or the other artists didn't like my work....I wasn't even covering another artists work.....god this country is so lame.

OK I'm back in Babylon. This will be a mini update for now, later I'll write a more detailed account of my last few months. But the short version is I've been living in Switzerland in the Capitol, doing too much acid and busking.
Switzerland has been the easiest country to live homeless in so far. I can live off societies excess quite easily.

I was in rainbow gathering again.
I met a fellow 420 Chan poster there who said that this thread had inspired them to also start vagabond traveling.
So shout out to Ben who is still up on that God dammed mountain top at the rainbow. I look forward to your thread man.
I was 100% convinced pretty much no one read this thread so I had been getting more lax with updates, but Ben has reinvigorated my writing appetite, so expect a lot more update and pics in the near future.

I'm back in Bern for a few weeks because I'm broke and I wanna get some cash because I have a hot new dutch girl friend in Holland that I want to visit. I can rest and restore my funds and supplies quite easily in Bern.

OK talk at y'all latter

Hey guys,

Sorry for the long gap of real content. Like I said I was really under the impression that no one read this thing.

So last update was me going to Switzerland. I hitched there and arrived starving and out of money.

The ride I got dropped me near the edge of the city, I had about 4km to walk to my friends house. I was exhausted and totally in survival mode. I stopped at a park along the way with a fountain. I saw two hippies rolling a joint and eating sandwiches.
I struck up a conversation with them, they told me they lived in the near by forest in a camp with several other people.
Then they offered me a sandwich and a super long joint.
Those two things saved my fucking life. I instantly felt recharged. Then they offered me to spend the night in their camp.

The next day I went to my friends house.
I stayed in my friends flat on and off between the camp in the woods and some other friends places.

Switzerland is the most expensive country Ive ever been to and one of the most expensive in the world. I found it a little difficult at first to cope with the super high cost of every thing.
A coffee at Mc Donalds costs 4 swiss francs (Cfr), a pack of cigarettes costs about 9 Cfr.
(At the moment of writing the euro is worth 0.873 to 1Cfr).

But I ended up making a lot of connections pretty quickly around Bern (the capitol). And also quickly found the best dumpster ever to get continuously good food from.
I also did bottle recycling to make cash. You get 2Cfr for some bottles.
One of my friends also used to own a head shop in the past. So he had like twenty cheap ass Chinese weed grinders left over. He let me constantly come and fill up bags of the shit grinders and Id walk around selling them for one or two francs.
They recently also legalized CBD weed in Swiss, so I was also selling loose CBD cigarettes. I sold them 3 days in a row to the waiting line to get into a music festival in Bern, doubling my money every day.

Near the end of my time in Bern (before rainbow gathering) I started dating this girl. She seemed pretty chill.
She was really interested in going to rainbow and had never been before. So I invited her to come with me.
But before the rainbow there was another cool festival in Signau (south Switzerland) called Fire Fest.
It’s a lot like rainbow gathering but with a touch of burning man.
It’s a no money festival. So entry is free, there is a share kitchen and even composting toilets .
They also had lots of other good stuff like a security team, medics and more.
Also they are constantly building huge structures of wood and burning them the whole week of the festival.
The very first day of festival on our walk to the opening ceremony my girl friend very randomly and casually dumped me.
I was so taken by surprise of the whole thing that I was actually pretty hurt and couldn’t go to the opening ceremony and had to be alone for like an hour.

But after that the festival was pretty awesome.
I did acid 4-6 times that week.
I hooked up with a super beautiful woman from Canada who painted my portrait and did mushrooms and space cookies with me.
It was pretty magical. I am definitely going again next year.

Three separate times during the Fire fest I bumped into my ex girl friend. We talked and she said she wanted to still go to rainbow but we both agreed it wasn’t a good idea to go together.
Three separate god damned times.

I had found a ride the first day of fire festival that was going to rainbow gathering.
So I left on this ride and we spent the night at their house.
In the morning he received a text that my ex is on her way over to our place now.

God damn it.

So I had to drive for 3 days to rainbow with my ex who totally invited her self with out asking into the ride.
It sucked.

So we finally arrived with fresh spirits at the rainbow.

We all decide to spend the night in the parking lot because this year the rainbow is on a mountain top that takes two days to reach.
But my ex decided to go now, just before sun set. We all tell her to wait till morning and that its dangerous to climb a mountain at night.
She ignores us and goes any way.

We woke up in the morning ate breakfast. My ex was back, she had made it to the first welcome center 1/4th of the way of the mountain and decided rainbow wasn’t for her and came down. She wouldn’t talk about why she was doing this. And then tried to steal my last fucking cola. I called her out on it and she was like no she wanted it. I made her give it back and she called me heartless and walked away.

Oh well.

So I ran into one of my best friends before going up. He’s from Brunei, a tiny south east Asian country. We went up the mountain together.
We carried about twenty kg of gear. Every step we took felt as though it were ten steps. I can seriously say it was the most work Ive done in my life climbing this mountain. It was mostly walkable paths but they were pretty steep in most of the places and then a few times there were actual climbs.
We got to a the first welcome center and spent then the night. I met a cute girl who I talked to a bit.
We ate dinner, we smoked we chilled and had a good time.

The next day I woke and had some coffee and joint. That same girl that I spoke to night before was handing out sancks to some people so I joined, I was starving.
She had Cashew butter. I decided to try and flirt with her. I had just been dumped and when that happens its more or less the only time in my life I actually seek out women.
Good rich food is a bit of a rarity at the rainbow so the cashew butter was an amazing gift, so I jokingly asked her to marry me.
We kept talking for a while and I kept flirting.

Then me and my friend decided to keep going up the mountain.
We finished the next leg of the climb in a single day.
We stopped at the next welcome center briefly though at the half way point and that girl was there again! Cool, we talked more.

We got to the top just around the call for food circle.
Food circle is exactly what it sounds like. A communal meal with most of the people there that is cooked by who ever felt like helping in the kitchen.
I walked around for a few minutes again before sitting down to eat and lo and behold that girl was there again!

We decided to eat together and then ended up spending the entire rest of the rainbow together! We were rarely apart.
I’ve totally ended up falling in love with her. Infact I am writing this on her PC right now in Holland, about an hour train ride from Amsterdam.

The rainbow was a blast, I even did acid one more time there with my gf.
There were amazing people and awesome adventures every day there. I even started writing a Dungeons and Dragons campaign with my gf during the Rainbow.
We intended to play it there with the hippies but we ended up not finishing writing it before we left.
I did have a few things about rainbow that I didn’t enjoy though.
Since the gathering was on top a giant mountain it was really difficult to bring new food up the mountain as often as we needed it. So the meals tended to be small and always vegan.
The area we were in was shaped like the mouth of a dormant volcano or a bowl. So the area on the mountain was actually quite small for the 4000+ people there.
Its like a desert climate up there. During the day it’s a trillion degrees and dry as fuck then at night it gets more humid and cold as fuck.
Then its also storming constantly, one minute it’s a bright blue day then the next it’s the black apocalypse written about in the old tales.

The storm had even killed a man, it knocked a tree down and crushed him in front of his family.
Another man died of a heart attack.
And one more had fallen off the mountain the day we were leaving.
Fucking metal.

So then I made my way back to Bern to recover a bit and gain some weight back I lost at rainbow. I did some busking and relaxing and binge ate.
The first day back I ate so much that I for the first time in my life I vomited from over eating. It was glorious.
I pooped in a real toilet and drank real coffee.
It was a transformative experience.

The thing I love most about rainbow is how primitive its gets at times. So that when I return, things that were so normal and every day become magic again.
I texted my ex saying in a much more polite way “Yow what the fuck was up with your behaviour”?
She said more or less “I don’t gotta explain shit” then blocked me.

Oh well.

So then I made it to The Netherlands where I’m staying with my gf and some other friends occasionally . Were getting an apartment in the next few weeks and Im getting a part time farming job to do along side busking.
This winter our plan is to leave Holland for some where much warmer and to do some traveling.

That’s more or less what I’ve been up to for a few months, doing too much acid, going to fire fest, rainbow and then to the present.

I’ve been to amsterdamn a few times now, I gotta say the weed is too expensive, the tourists make me want to punch some one and redlight district is still a bit of a weird place to me full of mostly bored looking women in garish costumes and crowds of stoned drunk tourists.

The weed outside amsterdam is good and way cheaper.

Well as usual fell free to ask me any questions.

Why leave Europe?

Asia is a lot harder to busk to survive in rather than the touristy EU with lots of dumb white people with too much money. You're gonna stick out more in Asia too. And I imagine getting back to EU or US if you decide to give it up at some point will probably be much harder. Unless you can get deported or something over there.

Hey guys

I've been working this job for like 4 weeks now.
It's physically hard work mainly harvesting, preparing and sorting vegetables. I'm actually building some muscle for the first time in my life since I was like 19. The work isn't actually that dificult at all and I get along well with the boss man and all the co workers.
I've learned how to drive a tractor and a fork lift.
I'm slowly building up a bit of cash towards my escape to the other side of the world again! I've really been trying to hustle my art a bit more online as well so that helps.

The Netherlands is honestly quite boring and dull. I find Amsterdam way over rated tbh. It's full of stoned drunk tourists who clog the streets only seeing the city either through a miasma of weed smoke or they are chinese tourists looking only at the world through their two thousand euro cameras like wide eyed idiots.

Also the red light district is more creepy than anything and is only a disappointing 4 square blocks or so. The women run the spectrum from genuinely super hot women who shake their asses in the windows all night to very bored ugly looking women looking their phones in one dirty hand and holding a sad looking sex toy in the other.

I'm pretty high.

Im gonna go watch star trek, it's my day off.

tbh, driving a forklift or tractor isn't all that bad. You can sorta loose yourself in your work doing. I had a job driving a forklift and time has never passed so quickly at work. An hour can seem like 5 minutes has passed. Pay is okay and most people are too afraid to do it. It's fun work and also pretty easy to come by.

Working on a farm can pass 12 hours in a flat second too if you aren't doing everything by hand and are actually using decent machinery. But sounds like you're harvesting and sorting by hand so that probably sucks.

Good luck. As always.

Ok minor update time.
Still in the Netherlands, it's cold, wet and flat.
I was working that farm job for a few weeks but eventually my lack of a visa (which the farmer was ok with at first) and general lack of things to do on a farm in the winter I lost that job. The guy was cool about it tho so NBFD.

I've just been chilling here and living life.
Making paintings and trying to sell them.

I bought a bunch of weed to try to sell then ended up smoking like 90% of it. Such is life.

The only interesting thing I got up to is that I particapated in an orgy with my girlfriend . First time ever. It was alot of fun. It was at a fetish club in Rotterdam.
It was pretty chill. It had all the normal stuff that any club has, a bar, dance floor, etc. But there were several rooms with beds, special chairs and such.

The next leg of my travels is starting back up.
In about a week me and my gf are going south to italy then east to serbia where I'm legal again. I can get on a plane in Serbia and then were going to Vietnam! YEE BOI!

The plan is to try and do this trip a bit more planned out than my trip to europe. Were looking into getting our teaching English as a foreign language Certs so we can get some real jobs while were there and not have to rely only on busking.

Randi, you better post again before January. We should meet up at a US gathering, do a thumbprint together, and laugh our asses off about how the shitposting has changed the world.

Still alive here.

Just on the road for quite a while.
I traveled from the Netherlands to south Italy and now on the way to the Portuguese gathering.
Once I'm in portugal I'll make a good update.
Currently in spain.

You realize I'm an illegal immigrant in europe with out any legal way to get back home?

Slight update;
The current plan is to stay in portugal where I have opportunities at earning a fair bit of money then to enter Serbia (where theoretically I should be legal again) over land then to take a plane to Asia where I'll be a normal legal human again and can hold a job, rent rooms/ housing, and all the other things that come with being legal.

see you guys at the portugal gathering.

Can you get to Hungary or Norway? I know people there, one is a thief and a liar (norway) and the other is a depressing bitch (hungary) who can't accept that his country is undergoing a polarity shift from boring to awesome over the next few years.
What fucking country are you even legal in anyhow?
Tell me if you can ever make it to a USA gathering. We both wound up traveling with the family around the same time it seems. I really find the synchronicity highly amusing. When I first went to a gathering, I was tripping balls before I even got there, with a car full of hippies and street kids. FFS it turned out I was already crashing less than 3miles from the site when they started showing up, yet wound up putting about 2000 miles on my car to haul a bunch of friends out while constantly on acid (not that that's saying much, I was tripping more often than not since my first post under this name, until about a year ago.) and on the last trip, the glass roof of the car blew off as everyone panicked thinking the car was about to fall apart, sounded like an explosion, as i chuckled and toked my spliff and just reached up and closed the slider. They call me Wizard, or The Wizard of the Silver Chalice, as I apparently already had a reputation for passing around my potions in the chalice to street kids who were too broke to buy shrooms and didn't yet know how to ID them. Turned out that I already knew 1/3 of the people at the regional gathering of around 800, even met my neighbors from the opposite side of the country who lived on the street behind me there, as I was helping out at welcome home. (parents of a kid I went to middle school with.)
If you can legally be in the USA, you should be able to hitch a ride working on a cargo vessel and maybe make it here in time for the annual gathering in Georgia this year. If not, could I pass on some potion recipes to you to share with the family in Europe? At least the medicinal ones and some ways to really boost mushrooms? I've learned a lot over the past few years, and I'd like to see this info get to the family in Europe.

Well fine then. I understand the first half, but what's wrong with being stuck on a cargo ship for a few months with a bunch of swarthy sweaty Portuguese sailors on your way to Georgia in the middle of summer?

You do know drugs are forbidden at gatherings...
Sounds like your an asshole who likes to trip balls.
Hope youll lose your balls one time to make you come down from it.

I've lost my passport and all my ID in a foreign country before and it was a surprisingly flawless experience to get home. I am an EU citizen though.

So a while since the last update.
Im gonna make a general post, if you guys have any questions or things you want me to elaborate on let me know.

So the last leg of the trip we went from The Netherlands to south italy then from south italy to portugal with my girlfriend. It was the longest hitching trip either of us ever made.
It was quite a trial but we made it through the other side as a stronger couple and stronger individuals.

We went to the Portuguese rainbow gathering. It was one of the smaller rainbows i've ever been to.

Now me and the GF have an apartment and Jobs in Lisbon. She does phone based customer support for dutch speaking people and I litteraly start a job as a Tuk Tuk driver tomorrow!

I'll keep the thread going for now so it doesn't fall off of page 10 and post interesting things about the goings on of my life. But for now the travel is going to be minimal and the vagabonding is more or less over. I've got an appartment, a phone, internet, electricity and even a fucking washer and dryer.

Were in a tiny ass company provided appartment but were looking to upgrade.

I just want to thank all you guys for actually giving a shit and reading all my nonsense!

So I just messaged a bunch of people who are also travelers that I know to see if they would be willing to be interviewed or to collaborate on a test pilot episode for a podcast about traveling.
I'll keep you guys updated.

Dude, nice.

Glad to hear from you again! Keep up with the updates, dude. I might be traveling within the next year myself. Likely out of my car, though, but this thread is great tips and fiddles regardless.
