Thanks folks ... im absolutely scared to death but i know its probably going to be the best year of my life!
You will have a wonderful time - no matter what happens!!! And, remember - common sense will be your best friend. Have you been checking the Travel Companions forum for possible... ah, ah, ah... companions???
Have fun planning your trip!!
is it your 1st RTW trip? how did you make up your mind?? i kept thinking about it, but just can't leave my husband only at home...
Lai, Ive been thinking aobut doing it for over a year now and i finally came to my decision after a weeks holiday in June. There was a moment when we were walking to the beach with our packs on and i thought ... i can do it if i really want to ... and when i got back home i started the ball rolling. However, I dont have a husband to consider.
I think that if its something that you really want to do, then it will stay with you until the day you do it .. for me its now or never.
Monkee, how about your job? you quit your current job or they will wait for you??? You have a wonderful trip!!!
Yes .. i quit my job, sold my house, and moved in with my sister. I work for a small company so they cant really keep my job open, but the did say to look in on them when i get back and they will see what they can do. But ... there's plenty more jobs around!!
