My 18 year old son wants to travel through Bulgaria and Greece?

Jump to last reply

My eighteen year old son wants to travel to Bulgaria (we are living for 3 years in Innsbruck, Austria) he found a cheap flight to Sophia from Innsbruck and then wants to travel through Bulgaria to Greece and then work (for room and board) at a hostel on the Island of Corfu for 1 month. He will be staying in hostels the whole time. We are Americans and he speaks English, some Spanish and is just learning German.

I would love advice from other travelers. He is a smart and wise young man with a good head on his shoulders. He did travel through Romania and Hungry this summer with his brother and a friend. What do you think? Is it wise for an 18 year old to travel solo? I don't know much about Bulgaria and Greece is in a financial crisis. Would love to hear from those who have traveled to those areas especially recently. I want to allow this trip but need more information to feel comfortable OKing it!

Thanks!
