      It's probably not enough to do a long-term travel the world type of thing. It would probably get you a really nice couple of weeks in Europe, or a couple months of pleasant living in South America or SEA. It's honestly so little that you should just save it as an emergency fund and focus on unfricking yourself. There's a huge difference between being broke and being broke but still having the cash to buy things. The death spirals tend to start when your car breaks down and you can't afford it, or you have to go to the hospital, etc. If you're already in a state where you're going to spend your last penny having fun before accepting doom, you might as well get a job as a truck driver or something and spend half the year working and the other half living overseas.

        lmfao

        Stand back, everyone, we us millionaire in the thread. I used to live in Europe, visit at least once a year for multiple countries. Last time was 4 months, I spent less than $10,000 with pre-post stops in the middle east.

        >travel the world
        This seem to be the problem, youre inadvertently asking if its possible to spend several thousand dollars on flights with money for touring...its moronic, hence;

        Several months if youre super cheap and travel by land, staying in developing regions.

        >travel by land

        No flying. SEVERAL months is reasonable, youre not paying for $2,000 professional tours and flights ever 10 days, youre freeloading on savings.

        $10,000 is plenty in Colombia. I did 3 months there in 2022 living in downtown Bogotá. I think in total I spent around $5,000 including airfare from Canada. If I had been smarter with my accommodations it would have been maybe $3,000. Just be prepared. Even the nice places there are total dumps by comparison to western building standards. The place I was in was a “luxury” highrise catering to foreigners and the showers had been built with drainage pipes too narrow for the flow rate, so they backed up and soaked the floors if you showered longer than about 3 minutes. Most places also won’t have hot water. I would say if you’re looking for western amenities, you can get them for about 40% of what you’d spend in comparable cities through AirBnB in Colombia. If you don’t mind living in a dump, I know people who rent for the Canadian dollar equivalent of about $3600 per year for a two bedroom apartment, but it doesn’t have any windows.

        Every other expense in Colombia was negligible. Taxis and food were absurdly cheap. Electronics are taxed heavily so make sure to bring your own.

        Also keep in mind that theft is quite common in Colombia, as it is in most South American countries (Costa Rica being the only possible exception I could think of). SEA might be a better bet if you’re worried about this.

          Luxury in Bogota is in the north only, and yes, their luxury buildings are definitely up to first world standard. Next time stay in the north.

    No. Lurk and watch how many weakmind soiboys post about how they took the solo travel pill and now cry about eating alone or being stuck in their airbnb with too much anxiety to go outside. You seem like the type who will experience the same thing.

    I'd still recommend going on a solo trip, but only for a week, just to get your feet wet and to say you did something. NYC or LA are good starter destinations if you're American, albeit expensive.

    You will learn how to buy plane tickets, book accomodations, navigate an airport, use public transportation, scourge for food, etc.

    Feeling like you know how to navigate modern society can give you a big confidence boost.

      Lol, what a moronic suggestion. No, SE Asia is the starter destination for Amerixans. Pay $150 a day for a hotel, minimum. Or, $250 a month room in Vietnam. The novelty of it all will open doors in his mind, NY or LA will lead him to kill himself for betting it on something that did nothing for him.

          Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam were my first international trips, age 21. Met a French woman in Bangkok, she was Vietnamese blooded but raised in France. When we went to Angkor Wat there were thousands of people everywhere, really took away from the place so we stayed as late as we could before being ushered out.

          Then a guard offered to let us back in for sunset for a bribe. We climbed to the very top, in dead silence during the sunset. Ive been to every corner of the world since and its still one of the most magical moments of my life.

          I visited all kinds of temples and stayed with a local family in Phnom Penh, visited the family of the girl's in Saigon.

    Are we talking about travelling or surviving? Most gays here think sharing hostel rooms with jeets and getting zero sleep cause you have to watch out for them stealing your shit is "travelling". If you want to live like a civilized human being, you have to spend AT LEAST 50 bucks a night on hotel rooms alone. minimum 20 bucks a day on food, 5-10 on transport depending on the country, 10-20 on tickets to museums/parks/etc. Or you could be a homosexual begpacker and survive on 10-15 dollars a day.

      I get a full detached cabin with A/C right on the beach in Indonesia. I'm an oldgay snd haven't stayed in a hostel for 10 years. I always use Google maps to eat at the nice restaurants and spend $15 - $20 per day in Indonesia or India out of the cities.

          Everyone in this thread is acting kinda spergy and abrasive and womanly, including you (but not me, I'm cool). To answer OPs question, idk if $10,000 will be enough take you on a meaningful worldwide adventure but in some regions you could easily go for months and months. As for depression, it doesn't matter where you are, you will always be with yourself. Travel can cure you for a little bit. But eventually you come home.

    unless your depression is circumstantial and caused by your current location or daily routine it's unlikely travelling will cure it. you'll just be depressed in a different place.
    have you tried exercising and getting more sun light? a vacation can be a good vehicle for doing that. rent an apartment which has a gym and pool. exercise in gym. relax by pool. see how you feel. still feel awful? traveling any longer probably isn't going to help.

    if you just travel around the us in your vehicle and either sleep in the vehicle or get a tent and camping stuff and stay at national parks and stuff you could live like that for a few years if you keep your traveling down and stick around the same place and eat *very* cheap. like ramen and beans may be some peanutbutter. traveling internationally you wouldn't get very far though.i know of people who live out of vans and travel around the country and whenever they're running low on money they get a job for a few months at a dollar general or whatever.
