I want to drink beer in bars packed with screaming fans, backpack and train hop and camp and cycle. I want to swim in rivers and climb mountains. I want to be lost for words at the beauty of churches and art. I want to see sheep on the green hills of Scotland and Ireland. I want to meet new people and hear their stories. Most importantly I want to document all of it and help inspire other millennials to fulfill their dreams to travel as well.

I am new to this forum so I thought I would introduce myself. My name is Paula and I am currently a nanny however in June 2015 I finish my current position and am looking to go on new adventures. I eventually would like to travel all over the world, but I am more than willing to start right here in the US. The only problem is I don't have any friends to do it with. They all want to settle down and begin their lives and I used to feel that way to but now I have this urge to travel.

I am the crazy girl in the group, was friends with the international lads on the golf team at my university. I have travelled and studied abroad in Spain, spent a summer in Canada and traveled parts of the east coast but other than that I don't have so much travel experience. I have a tight budget but am willing to work. I am quick to think, make friends easily and super resourceful. I am not afraid to camp or hike. I just don't want to alone. I have been doing a lot of research and since I have been a nanny and house sat a lot I think it would be amazing to pickup house sitting gigs as the trip goes. I have a lot of planning to do and know that there are so many details to figure out but I am for sure up for the challenge.

I am not sure how yet or where, but I know I would really like someone male or female to travel with. I think it is probably just safer that way. I have 4 months or so to start planning so any suggestions are more than welcome! As well as anyone interested in embarking on this journey with me!

Easily one of the best introductions on this site so far - welcome!

Being married, old and doddery , I'm not the sort of person you'd want to be accompanying you but I wish you luck in finding to right people.

There are plenty of sheep on green hills here in New Zealand.

Enjoy Travellerspoint and enjoy your eventual travels!
