Okay, first things first I tried searching for an answer to this question but let’s be honest, searching forums is garbage across the board. Anyway I didn’t find anything.

So I’m hitting the road in a month, which means quitting my job and losing my health insurance. I plan on spending a month fucking about Europe before I come home and ride the rails. Do any of you have any suggestion/recommendation for health insurance abroad for only a month? First time I will be in this position.

I think there is health insurance designed for travelers. I used to get messages about it from Internations, which is a website for expats. But I personally don’t have health insurance, and don’t know much about it.

not to be snarky, but just because you don't know how to use something doesn't mean it sucks.

taking a little time to use the advanced search and actually digging a little will often yield the results you are looking for.

Do any of you have any suggestion/recommendation for health insurance abroad for only a month?
first question is why do you need it? do you have a medical condition? is there some reason you cannot stock up on enough medical supplies to last a month? otherwise i would say your only other solution would probably be some kind of traveler's insurance that includes health care.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $85.75 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
    $85.75 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
