Some people can't help but go about things the very hard way by leaving a country of economic prosperity, bitey animals, comparative peace and sunshine.
Aside from the UK, Germany and maybe France, is there anywhere over there which isn't on a breadline of mismanagement and euro-mooching?
edit: I haven't travelled in ages, I probably won't be any time soon either
Usually one of those things best done when young, stupid and irresponsible.
What good is economic prosperity if you can get eaten by a spider while sleeping. Unless you actually build an impenetrable fort out of all that extra money economic prosperity gets you (in which case, AWESOME! forts are cool) those bitey animals can be the death of you
Scandinavia probably...though that might be a bit chilly for those that only know about snow from textbooks and tv shows
As for travelling, you could try being old(ish) stupid and irresponsible for a few weeks, see how it suits you. I know a few people that seem to enjoy being old stupid and irresponsible and annoyingly enough they seem to be much happier than those who took the responsible route
