$50k in savings, where do I go?

And how long can it make it last?
Anyone else been a NEET abroad? What is the longest you’ve gone without working or volunteering whilst abroad?
Can I live for a few years in low cost countries without doing anything? Will I get bored?
Please share your experiences.

    I was able to live in Thailand for 15 months off ~30k and that was with me regularly going out and…

    REGULARLY CREAMPIE 18-40 YEAR OLD THAI TEENS/WOMEN.

    If you’re not into FRICKING HOOKERS OVERSEAS, then it’s entirely possible to live comfortably for 12-15k for an entire year. The rough cost would be
    >6k for the entire year of accommodation
    And
    >5-6k for food for the entire year.

        You locked yourself into one place for a whole year? Hopefully you make friends and enjoy your time there. I'd rather pay $14/day and GTFO whenever I feel like it.

      I'm living off about 1k a month in Japland (Tokyo), though I'm at a sharehouse and eating basically just conbini food. Could probably get cheaper/nicer in SEA

      5-6k is pretty fricking expensive for third world food anon...

    You could buy a damn house for that much in some countries. Then you'd only have to work 20 hours a week forever. If you worked more or rented out one room, you'd be able to retire comfortably.

    At a certain point, living frugally means wasting as much time as possible for every dollar spent. However, money can be replenished in a few months' work, while time is gone forever. Thus, maximum frugality is not a worthy goal.
    In the past, I have averaged $750/month expenditures while goofing around between jobs; however, you can't do much on this budget besides walk around, eat and sleep. These days my expense goal is $1500/month, which will give me more latitude in spending decisions. I'm setting out this winter with about $14K in my "travel fund" and $14K in my "reserve fund".

    You can last years on that, yeah. You already know where to go that qualifies as a low cost country. Yes, you will get bored. Very quickly.
    I tried 'retiring' at 23 and went to a beach town in Mexico with a couple small bags and 12k usd in the bank. This was about 6 months into the pandemic and I couldn't stand the US anymore, which only got worse after I fricked off. It was great at first, and staying in one town for half a year as I did eliminated some of the major problems of travel, like spending money on transportation and having to make a new social circle everywhere you go. I was never lonely, I was never uncomfortable, I never spent more than $800 a month, but frick me dead was I bored out of my mind. If I had had a 40 hr/wk job, that would have sucked too - but not having to do anything was almost worse. This greatly depends on your personality, of course, but I couldn't motivate myself to do anything difficult. I just chose the easy thing to do every day, which is go to the beach, smoke weed and hang out with the other expat neets who had frick-all to do. In the end I kinda lost it and had to skip town for a while, traveled a bit and came home after almost a year total. in the end i don't regret it because it taught me a lot about how I want to spend my time in the future. I could elaborate but this aint a blog and nobody really cares. if you wanna try it out, just do it but be very conscious of when you run out of steam and don't waste time waiting for that honeymoon feeling to come back, cuz it won't

      Are there a lot of people in their 20s/30s living like you did? No work, no purpose, no goal, just living cheaply abroad taking each day as it comes?

        Certain places attract those types, the town I was in was certainly a magnet for us. I would say most of them aren’t as forthcoming about their intentions as I am, masking their desire to frick off/chase pleasure as a spiritual journey or detoxing or other nonsense. The older ones I met, 35+, were pretty much open about what they were doing. They’ve resigned themselves to coasting thru an easy life, basically

        What are you doing now, are you back in the US working a 9 to 5?

        I returned to the US, started working the first job I’ve ever had that’s not horrifically boring (sales), put 4 months in and quit to travel again. Then went back to work when I was finished with my travel. This is my 3rd time doing that and it’s pretty neat, although I’m sick of the job (it’s fricking sales). Going to South America in 1 month, one way ticket

    I'd be horrified to NEET abroad like that. Imagine running out of money in a 3rd world country where you don't speak the language. A gap year to sort yourself out overseas is actually fairly normal, but staying indefinitely could hard-frick your life by wasting valuable time and squandering your savings that are actually pretty good by normie standards.
