Trip Report The Scruffman in Europe

Jump to last reply

This thread continues the story from two previous threads:

The preparatory thread:
http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/scruffy-young-man-entering-the-uk.cfm

The United States adventure:
http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/scruffy-young-man-has-left-the-building.cfm

To set the stage for newcomers, my very personable, adventurous 21-year-old son Greg, he of dreadlocks and scruffy beard and thrift store clothes, is engaged in a trip more or less around the world until his money runs out. Because he wants to be gone a year but doesn't have the usual sort of funding required for that, he is hitchhiking, ride-sharing, couchsurfing, and camping his way around. He left home (San Francisco Bay area) on September 27, 2009.

I'll be updating here as I am able. I am dependent on the Scruffman's very intermittent internet access and willingness to correspond with his mom.
