Ride that train for free

various friends have told me stories of traveling long distance in Europe by train without paying.
When the inspector comes they start their acting, maybe they didn't know, maybe they're hobos (and hobo-looking), maybe they don't even speak the language. That is, some social engineering and with the help of god it works out. Worst thing that can happen, they get thrown out of the train.
Question here. How viable do you think this method is? Countries where it would be very risky? What would that risk cost? Tips on the whole thing?

I would like to invite all /trv/ to visit the north of Spain, its like Scotland, but with good weather, also:
>Almost none of massified tourism
>Good weather, but not too hot
>Awesome for trekking or any nature-related activities
>Weed and alcohol culture
>Home-food culture, best place to eat in Spain
>Awesome natural beaches
>Good for surfing/water sports
Seriously, why arent you visiting the north of spain right now

I brought back wrong suitcase from the airport yesterday. It has a padlock on it, so i don't know what it contains.
My suitcase contains most of my clothes, a ton of weird hentai, some medication, and $800 in cool japanese gifts to my friends.
My plan is to do some social engineering and end up with both mine and the mystery suitcase. What would you do?
Also, general luggage storie thread!

Only lurked a bit and am new to /trv/ but next summer my friend and I are planning a trip semi-global.
Our basic plan, just where we'd like to go, we haven't worked out times and dates we'd like to arrive and depart.
Leaving Reno, NV, USA in June 2014 to Sydney, Australia
Then from Sydney to London
Then from London to Vancouver
And we've been discussing biking from Vancouver back to Reno, or just taking a flight.
Also; of course we're going to look into hotels, we aren't just going to rely on internet friends for a roof.
>For starters, how is the process of getting a passport?
>What about going through customs? Are either of these difficult or annoying processes?
>I've suggested that maybe $2,000 spending money for food and other things (not hotels) would be nice. Is that a realistic amount of extra money to bring? Or should we bring more/less (each)?
>What of exchanging money in each country?
>What is your input on biking such a long distance? (Vancouver to Reno) and would it be better to just fly back?
>What things should we (as Americans) avoid doing in these countries? Things we should do?
>Overall, the whole trip we've roughly estimated could be around $6500-$7000, thoughts?
I'm sure I have more questions I'll think of later, and feel free to ask me questions as well as give your own input.

What is up with westerners living in eastern countries?

I want to live in Japan for a while and teach English, this is why this is interesting to me.. but all the videos of "gaijin" ( foreigners living in japan ), the people seem fcking crazy.. might seem weird but I've watched a couple documentaries and many blogs on westerners living in China/Japan and except for a very few people, most seem completely stir crazy/batshit insane.
Because Japanese live in a overly polite society compared to many western countries, do Westerners that live there for extended periods ever seem pretentious or become pretentious, perhaps because of the transition from testosterone ( perhaps brash ) interaction to more subdued and polite interaction? It is one thing I noticed in some videos of "gaijin" ( westerners living in japan ), is that many come off as haughty assholes. Oh well, maybe I am the asshole. It is something I'vethought I noticed..
