I honestly find these increasing common requests from new travellers to, "Please give me money so I can travel" via social media kinda repugnant.
What makes you so special that you shouldn't scrimp and save money like 99.9% of other travellers in order for their trips to come true? What makes you so different that you deserve a free ride?
I'm not attacking you, it's a legitimate question that deserves an honest answer.
I'm sorry the Original Post was deleted because I truly was interested in hearing how someone justifies why their trip should be free because they expect it to be paid for by strangers on the Internet.
It's an state a mind that I don't understand and I would like to hear the opinions of the people who think strangers should donate funds via social media to finance their travel.
The post hasn't been deleted yet, but only flagged for attention of the responsible moderator - and will probably be left with just the URL snipped, given the chance of interesting discussion to follow.
