I've had a pretty sheltered life over the years. I'm 20 years old and have no need for a job, though I might be working at my cousins pub soon everythings gone ok and cool and that. Which is why I'm thinking about doing something that will change my life. Make me see other sides, broaden horizons and that. I'm thinking about popping over to America and just drive from one end to the other. I wanted to drive around in a Triumph Spitfire but the cost of buying one and shipping it over there wouldn't be justified. I plan on funding the trip by doing odd jobs along the way. work in a bar or do whatever for a few bob until I drive off again. Most likely with a mate too. Anyone done anything like this before? Just decided on a big adventure and had a great time doing it? or a bad time perhaps? Also after tips. Things to do, people to meet, things to avoid (I don't want to end up getting shot or anything!). How much are plane tickets, or what's a good site to look at in general? thinking about doing this perhaps in the next few months. After I finish this year of university. I need to do something big, the boredom is boring!
