Is it possible to survive on $10 a day in Western Europe?

If you travel by bicycle and sleep in a tent

    If you're in a country with clean drinking water fountains and don't mind eating a lot of bread it's perfectly doable

    Yes.It's also possible to measure the Earth's circumference by very primitive mathematical means and basically no modern instruments, but it doesn't mean that it is easy. What is your question exactly?

      Yeah because there's social services there to feed them. Also, if they take a 5 mile walk into the city they can easily scrape together at least 20 bucks minimum begging

    To survive, yes. Anything beyond that, no

    Very possible.
    Drink tap water and refill when you can, the tap water is drinkable and better than bottled water in most of western Europe.

    Given you don't need much else (hygiene articles etc) you can then get some groceries for the 10€, i can recommend the self serve baked goods most supermarkets have for breakfast, for lunch and dinner you have to get creative. You can get frozen veggies and make a stir fry, often you can find bags with potato or pasta in it already. Meat generally is more expensive. Then for dinner you could eat a canned soup, ramen, or just bread with a topping, something like that.

      I spent many summers hitchhiking and camping around Europe with a budget similar to that. I typically bought bread, margarine, sardines and lentils, plus a luxury item like cheese or beer every day. Bonus points if I can forage wild food or plunder an orchard. Camping is easy everywhere if you are a little sneaky. I wish I’d never left that life behind.

      A motorcycle will make stealth camping much more difficult.

        Why'd you stop? How old were you?

          I was doing seasonal work in the States so I had lots of free time, and I have a sister who lives in the EU so immigration officials didn't care if I entered with $27.02 in my bank account. Things are different now; I have a good job at home and I no longer speak to my sister. Now all the joys of life pale in comparison to the thrill of simple food and a good campsite.

          I really hope you feel better bro. I believe what you're looking for is out there. Maybe consider getting counselling before you start traveling.

    You gotta find a spot where you can set up and sleep without being seen by the locals.

    But otherwise, yeah. Some fruits and a cheap lunch and dinner each day. Use public water fountains.
