A month you say?  Do you get your food paid for and everything?  Either way that would be awesome to spend a month there.


No, food is not included in it because there is no real meal plan we can get since we're on the go almost every week so it really depends how much you want to spend. Food is Czech Republic is extremely cheap, especially in grocery stores. It gets pricy in Vienna and high tourist areas like Prague. If you can get your hands on such a program at your school I highly recommend it. It's an experience you'll never forget.

However, if you just want to backpack, there's tons of hostels out there and also, tons of McDonald's along the way if you don't want to spend too much money (seriously, they're like American Embassies over there, all employees speak english, in all the places I've visited). But in Central Europe, fast food may atually be more expensive than a meal at a nice restaurant. A good reason to walk around the city until you find the right restaurant.

I've convinced Maxx to join me in 2010 for the World Cup in South Africa. I hope I convince more. Travelling is now an addiction, right after my addiction to Hungarian/Czech gulash. I mean look at this! For 3 bucks!

If you can afford the time off then do it. Once you have a career, you won't really be able to take a month off to go to Europe or anywhere else.

My friend did something like this but he took 4000 and just went everywhere. He drove the autobahn, lived as a fisherman in exchange for travel to italy from spain, went on a real african safari drive with proper english people beside him, accidentally witnessed an underground sex party which he described as the worst smell in the world and something he wishes he could un-see, and a shit load more.
Ya, rly.

I remember when pussy was just awesome by itself. It was the best thing ever. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, BAM! They started landscaping it.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man religion and he'll sit there, praying for fish, until he and his family starve to death.

That sounds awesome, I am going to look into that. Traveling is quite fun, I went to Jamaica a few months ago for my senior trip which was absolutely amazing. There is literally no drinking age there, weed is legal there (which I was not sure about at first) but I didn't buy anything bad because my high school is a christian school. I didn't mind though, it was beautiful down there.

I am hoping to go to tokyo with my friend in a year or so, I found round trip tickets for a little bit more than 1100 dollars. I figure if I get a job to where I make 80 thousand + a year I can pay for the debt I rack up as a kid. Plus, I have 5 g's in my bank account already which would help a lot.
