Ok so i just want to get all of your views on this --->

----> Could someone, who has no experience what-so-ever in travel/transport etc., be able to fly half way across the world and backpack and poss. enjoy it?

This question seems to spur so many different comments/reactions!

lil, I think you will have the time of your life! Nothing ventured-nothing gained! Those memories are something money can't buy!
You will have to keep us all updated on your trip!

Hi Lil,

I would say definitely (it can be a great, enjoyable experience). I don't think past experience traveling is a big factor. I do think the person has to be the type of person that doesn't get too lonely when spending lots of time alone (like in the hotel rooms at night, etc..). I think that's a much bigger factor to consider than traveling experience.

I plan to do just that in a few months and I fully intend to have a blast wheter I know what I'm doing or not. I think the thrill of constantly doing and going somewhere new everytime will more than make up for the amount of times I manage to screw up

Look at it this way Jas... Everyone who travels had to start from somewhere. That is, they were a first-timer at some point in time and probably just as nervous as you are now. Every journey starts with a "first step". You have now made yours with booking your flights.

You are going to have fun, enjoy it and will never look back!

Jas - you'll have the time of your life !!!! As Isa said everyone at some point is a first time traveler so you're not alone. You'll probably meet some fantastic people when you get out there ! If you always let first time nerves get the better of you then you'll never do anything, after all you learned how to walk, talk, found tp ;) , and most important bought THE TICKET !!
I'm so jealous at the moment !!!

Yes, yes and yes! There's a first time for everything! You'll see, you'll have such a great time that you'll bore everyone to tears for months after you get back. You'll never forget or regret it.
