Trip Report "Scruffy Young Man" has left the building!

Jump to last reply

This thread is begun at the request of some who were following my son's plans to enter Great Britain for a brief stay but without a continuing ticket on the first international leg of a planned trip around the world. He has now launched on his trip, and I'll be writing up what I can as it progresses, given that I'm getting the story secondhand.

This story begins in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This is the part where he travels cross-country to New York, where he has friends to stay with, before flying off to London.

To set the stage:

My one and only son Greg, age 21, is a very outgoing, personable young man who buys all his clothes at the thrift store, has grown some really mediocre dreadlocks, and has a short, scruffy beard (hence the "Scruffy Young Man"). He has been dreaming of a half-a-shoestring trip around the world for years. He's not thinking as high-class as hosteling; he's planning on couch-surfing his way around the world. There is a website for this! There are loads of people even in Africa, India and Nepal who are willing to put people up for free!
