Howdy travellers! My name is Han, 19, was lucky enugh to come cross this forum today.

I'm out here without education, no stable income or home, so I'm somewhat free roaming for now. Been getting food and a roof over my head from kind strangers in return of housework and company. Though If it wasn't for covid, I would have fucked off from this country last year.

I was born in Latvia and my family moved around Europe for a while before settling in the UK when I was 8 or 9 years old. It was 5 people living out of an old Ford, eating fresh cod and gas station food. Ever since I've had a crazy itch to get up and leave wherever I am, to get myself back on the road. From then I lived (mostly) comfortaly at home until I was lucky enough to spend a year in Paris when I was 17 and got addicted to wondering around and meeting new people (and alcohol, but we fixed that.). Ever since we left Latvia as a kid, I've had a crazy itch to get up and leave wherever I am, to get myself back on the road.

For the time being I'm looking to explore more of Europe, and ideally find my way to South America next year - so if anyone has tips or suggestions, or wants to get in touch for any reason, my arms are wide open. I surely need to get better at finding modes of transport without money though.

Excited to be part of this community with ya'll!

Welcome,

I love Latvia. Was there for Ligo and Jani Day in 2013 with my ex boyfriend's Latvian family. Very beautiful and wild country.
Good luck on all your travels. South America is on my radar as well, maybe next year. If you make it to the US hit me up, I can link you up with some cool street kid friends of mine closer to your age.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
