Iama 21y/o guy who bought a 1-way ticket to Europe, had no plan, traveled by myself for 6 months, visited 20 countries, and only spent about $4000, AMA.
I was scammed by a taxi driver in Bulgaria, Spent a week in Romania without ever seeing the daylight. Managed to get a Visa to Belarus, the last Dictatorship in Europe. Worked on a farm in France. And camped under the stars in Poland. I only spent about 7 nights staying in hostels and I just couchsurfed or stayed with people I met the rest of times.
. Ask me anything!
Hopefully this is enough proof, Ill upload a few photos:
