Hello those who love travel!

I am here to reach out and see if it's really possible to meet travel buddies online.
I have been planning and saving for an extended trip around Asia, with interest in... well, pretty much everywhere but in particular, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Lao, Bali and the list does go on.
I aim to head out in Feb 2016. But I was originally going with my boyfriend who it looks like I may be breaking up with. I don't think his heart was ever really into the travelling and it's like flogging a dead horse.
I would really love to meet someone with an interest/ plan to visit the same places, male or female, but definitely not male looking to hook up, cause frankly, I am not into that quick a turnover.
I will have enough money to keep me going for at least 6 months (to a year) on a budget, and I am also prepared to work while I am out there.
I know it's probably unlikely that there will be someone with the exact same departure date, time frame, destination and criteria as me. But maybe if you are planning on visiting one of those places next year, and you too are looking for company, we could chat about our plans and see whether we're a match!

I'm 28, a photographer, which is a big part of this trip- I'm wanting to expand my portfolio and continue my learning. I'm also a creative writer.

So please say hi if any of this sounds familiar and appealing to you!

Hey ZenPen,

I'm interesting in travelling around. I don't think i'll be free for the whole time of your adventure but certainly for a bit. I am current in India (and winding up to head back to America some time shortly) but I'd like to see Cambodia and Laos too (and of course if youre India we could travel around too. Lots I haven't seen here). Hit me up if youre interested.

Hi zen pen

I'm Chelsey 26, solo traveller to. I land in Bangkok on the 15th Feb and I'm backpacking for around 6 weeks then head to Cambodia and Veitnam for 2 to 3 weeks. So not there for the whole time because then I'm off to Australia.

Hi ZenPen,

I'm travelling to Japan in March and Planning to travel SE Asia after for 6 months. I'm a first time solo traveller. My interest matches yours, however I'm an amateur photographer hoping to build my portfolio on my travel. I don't have a fixed travel plan, I'm open to places and flexible with dates. Message me if you are looking for a travel buddy.
