I just discovered this website as I was scanning the web for travel ideas and I feel like I've hit the jackpot. I am planning a round the world trip for after high school (still have two years - but can't wait). I would really love any helpful points or tips on where I could go, accomodations, travel expenses, anything will help. I plan to spend about a year to 14 months travelling and would like to see as much as I can. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

My best tip would be to start saving NOW. Im travelling RTW, leaving in June, and am going for 8 months. I only decided on doing this last December, so 5 months ago, and now I am working my ass off trying to save up the money.

Yes I agree with chalkers start saving cash, the only reason im going RTW is that I sold my house, paid off my debts including student loans and am using the remainder to travel. The way to think is the more money you save now the more fun you will have on the road!!:)
