Just thought i would introduce myself, as i've started to use this fourum as its the polite thing to do! :)

I'm Kirk, from Liverpool/Chester/Tamworth in the UK, i am currently studying at university (Quantity Surveying) not the most exciting job but it will help with saving towards my round the world trip!

I've been planning my trip on and off the for the last year, i should be taking in around 60 countries in total, and looking at round 2 to 3 years actual travel involved, along the way i will be taking lots of photos and writing a book about my life and my travels...

Due to the expensive of university it will take me a couple of years to save up enough money for my trip looking at around 30 to 35k for the 3 years... Hopefully should be enough!

Possible start date will be around 2008/2009

Welcome to TP, Kirk!

Wow, that's going to be quite the adventure! You will definitely gather a lot of information through TP and you have some time before you will actually put it into effect. Sounds like a wonderful trip and hope to see your book on the shelves when you finish it. (I'm guessing in the travel section...)

Hope to see you in the ther forums!

I don't know which angle the book look at yet, i would really like it to be a fusion of autobiographical information woven within the story of my journey. Most likely I will take the Palin approach to a certain degree, taking his aspect of planning before hand but the timeline will be down to my choice so I can take it at my own pace and enjoy each place until I feel I?ve done all I can do etc.

My dream would be to meet someone who would be committed to travelling for this ammount of time and have the money to spend! Also have the same interests as me, such as photography and extreme sports!
