Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I have contingency savings I guess, which will keep me going for 3-5 months depending on how much I cut back and top up with other temporary means of income if I lose my job.  It was originally meant to be a mortgage deposit or capital for starting my own business if I ever decide what that would be.

The dilemma is that I have too much in savings to be eligible for state benefits, and I hate the idea of having to sit on my arse and watch my savings go down the drain until I do become eligible.  A large part of me is tempted to use the money to travel for a few months, do something productive with it rather than watch it disappear slowly. I don't know.
