Basically I am looking to start a new life somewhere but I don't have a degree or any qualifications. I own a house still worth between about €450,000-500,000. I was thinking could I use what money I have to travel until I find something I might be interested in doing if I could eventually sell the house. Any more advice? Could it be done?

Marcus - enough is enough. Seriously. You have posted thread after thread after thread asking "is this enough for this" and "is that enough for that". You have gotten all the answers you're ever going to get - basically - yes. Whether $20 or $20,000 - you can always travel somewhere. In order to start a new life, you need to get a life. So, get off your ass and go. Stop asking the same questions time and again. Repetition breeds boredom and we're now extremely bored with your requests. Damn - just throw a dart at a map and go there.

Hi Marcus, how was your "practise trip" ? Did you like Egypt? Or did you go elsewhere? Did you go at all?

Boy I wish I have that kind of money. I'll be packing my bag asap. Ok, maybe after I hand in my dissertation.

Marcus, your questions may be genuine but if you're not doing anything about it except pondering and repeating the question, over and over, it will gets on everyone's nerves. And no offense, it's a bit like rubbing into everyone's nose saying, "Hey, look, I have all this dosh to travel... ah what should I do? What shoould I do? What shoooould I do?"

Not cool.

Travel is something one can do as cheaply or as expensively as they wish. Usually, the expenses pertain to accommodation, transports and food. Prices for sights and attractions don't change much from year to year. If you want to travel in style and eat lavishly, then be prepared to pay more. If you're fine with sharing a dorm room with 10 other backpackers and eat sandwiches everyday, then you should have plenty of change leftover.

Get a move on buddy.
