Well actually it is a game.

My point is, when I was single and in my 20s, if I was offered a "job" playing a sport that paid more than a lot of 20 year olds make starting out AND I got to go to Europe - that would sure sound enticing. I am not saying there wouldn't be downsides of loneliness, language barriers, and culture differences but there would certainly be a lot of opportunities, most 20 year olds don't get to experience, if you embrace them.
