i hate to rain on anyone's parade, but the way the american dollar is going, and the way the EU has made everything so freaking expensive, i really think the days of the 'american backpacking through europe' are pretty much gone. it's extremely expensive, and isn't nearly as easy or care free as traveling the states is... id recommend going to Australia, biking new zealand, or traveling somewhere in south america. that's just my two cents though.

all over the show
hitching europe isnt expensive if you know what youre doing; Germany is like the hitchhiking mecca: short waits, awesome rides, cheap booze, squats in every town and best of all dirty kids are just accepted, theyre all over the place in the cities, just look for a mohawk and youve got a bed for the night.

Holland is pretty good, i saw 3 big squats on the first street i walked down in A'dam, aswel as a couple of coffeeshops, oh and a bin chocked full of plastic wrapped veg :)
Holland even has official hitchhiking spots called a 'liftplaats'

Im planning on going to Europe next year. Im thinking of going to Norway, Germany, Spain, Sweden, etc. Im still trying to figure out how much money should I take there, with the plane tickets so expensive Ill have to get a lot of money to have extra for when I get there.

    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.

    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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

    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.
