I want to travel ... ...far, far, away. Somewhere in Europe! And I don't want to come back for a long, long, time . I might soon have enough money for a flight; what do I do for money once I get where I'm going? Is it easy to find places to stay? People who speak English? What should I worry about? What precautions should I take or think about at least? WHAT IF I DONT EVER WANT TO COME BACK?!?!? I have lots of questions. I really just want to get away and travel and be young and have a lot of fun all over the world. Like many others, I also have student loans. What happens with that if I dont want to come back to the US for a while ... if at all? What if I meet a cute redhead in Ireland and decide I want to marry her and stay there? Then what .. huh, huh, huh?

I'm assuming you are in the US

Well, if you are a US citizen then you can't very easily get any kind of visa that will let you LEGALLY work, I have no idea about the availability of illegal work....

The student loans are the real hitch though, they don't go away. Even if they have a hard time tracking you down in Europe you would be in an absolutely INSANE amount of financial trouble should you and your Irish redhead ever decide you want to move to the states years from now....

The Peace Corps will let you defer your student loans for the two years and 3 months. That might be something to think about.

Yeah, its definitly alot to deal with U2fan, but like I hinted at you can pretty much cut-to-the-chase and say that unless he does the peace corps he is grounded given the student loans. Take the money and try to knock some extra principle off those things.
