I'm an American who's been living in Germany for a year, and now it's time to head home. Problem is, money's a little scarce. So, I'm shopping around for the cheapest possible one-way over the Atlantic.

Doesn't really matter from where to where (ultimate goal: Hamburg, Germany to Boulder, CO, but stops along the way are not by any means unwelcome), just looking for suggestions on traversing that nasty pond! Discount airlines, good websites, heck... boats? Travelling light and non-conventionally, so give me what you've got!

Thanks for the help!

Report yourself to the German police. Tell them you are an illegal alien and that you are a) in violation of several German laws forbidding you to work in Germany or b) need to apply for social welfare in Germany because you can't support yourself. You won't believe how happy the German government will be to pay your ticket!

Just kidding, of course.

Swimming

Take a look to: Aer Lings. They've got cheap fares from Dublin to USA. Flying to Dublin won't be expensive with low a fare airline such as Ryanair or Easyjet.

A few wooden pallets, a bit of old rope, a broom-handle and some plastic sheeting?

There is a Canadian Company called Zoom airlines, that goes from Montreal or Toronto to Paris or London, or From Paris london to MOntreal or Toronto, depending on the destination you want... I know it doesnt land in the us, but when you're in Canada.. you can easily find a cheap bus ticket to where you want to go in the U.S. the tickets are very cheap, I am flying with them to europe next summer!! www.flyzoom.com ( I don't know if I am allowed to give the web site.. but, give it a try!!!)
