what you do is you pack a packet and go! :P
I thikn interrail is super good for backpacking if you're in Europe because it's cheap.. You can plan ahead for some of the stops. it is also nice to have one place that's a bit ''luxurious'' lol I mean with ac, pool etc.

Belgium is a great location. you can buy a low price flight to a big city and from that place go inter railing in the region. Like Belgium --> Madrid in plane and interrail in Spain and Portugal. It's super cheap

It consists of hiking the entire east coast of the US. You resupply from the towns you come across

It's a waste of money.
A night with two cheap hookers will provide better memories than 6 months of traveling around stupid cities, eating strange food, and meeting dumb people who do things slightly different than you do.

Don't listen to this. Travel and experiencing the world is actually such an eye opening experience, and you can learn a lot

traveling is a retarded meme
"muh eye opening experiences" is just a complete bullshit nonanswer

i have to say that i agree with this guy. if you are the typical Veeky Forums autist you wont get much from travelling. i went alone and didnt meet anyone and desu seeing a famous building in real life is no different from seeing it on google images. the one up side is that i met and made out with a 17 year old slovenian girl. better off either buying something cool or getting hookers, or holding until youre in lamboland
