People dont have a problem with this type of plan, people are questioning how easy others are suggesting it is to save up the cash to get back out.
Assuming OP has no skills that render him applicable for anything other than a minimum wage job.
He'd have to fly home, find a place to live(hes young, but not young enough that living with your parents isnt sad), he then has to look for and get accepted for a job. Minimum wage in Germany is $10.50/hour pre tax(according to a 30 sec google search), so even if he manages to scoop a full time job(40 hours/week), he'll only be clearing ~$1300/month.
I knew a guy who saved $10k in a year working minimum wage for his Asia/Australia trip, but he was grinding like a mo fo, 70 hour weeks with two jobs, OP cant commit to playing a game for 100 hours/month.
If he is forced to go home, probs best to focus on getting life sorted and giving up the Asia dream, unless of course he finds himself in the situation were it is viable(starts an online business).
Best bet if you go busto in Asia would be to try to obtain an Australian work visa, work on the farms for a few months and then youll be back with a reasonable bankroll in 6 months(I think).
