Hello Kristy,

Well... One of the first things you need to decide on is what your budget will be. You said that you would like to be gone for as long as possible so I'm assuming you don't have any time constraints, so your next order of business could be to decide on which parts of the world you would like to see. From there you can begin to determine how long your tip will last.

If you have never gone before I certainly recommend reading the Lonely Planet's First Time RTW - really useful book. Published 2004/05, and they are about to issue a new edition . . very helpful reading and when combined with the tips on this site, planning will be a breeze!!
