Here's a fun clip from back when the Gilmore Girls were dreaming of a down and dirty European experience (to the shock of Lorelai's snobby parents, Richard and Emily). And they had the good sense to be using the flagship of all our guidebooks, Europe Through the Back Door. Emily, the grandmother, reads a particularly timely quote about the value of being on the road. Exploring Europe "with all your possessions strapped to you back" remains one of the great coming of age experiences that young people of every generation (rich or otherwise) can enjoy.
