Heya folks,
I'm a 25year old lad from Dublin goin on a round the world trip in the nxt few mths wit couple of friends of mine, 4 other lads and 4 girls. We finished college last May and just gettin a yr of 9-5’s in before we head off.
Just joined this site there a few weeks ago,think its a great idea for getting info etc and even chattin to people who are in the same boat.
I cant feckin wait to head off, gonna be so much craic!!
Anyway,just said I'd throw a message up to see if anyone replies, as I said, bit of a novice at all this but could be really helpful to find out stuff before we go, as in how much money are we gonna need???? No idea! But wanna do as much as possible and love a good session so I'm kinda thinkin not to worry bout the money side, only doing this once so wanna make the most of it.
Also any people in the same boat who may be headin off round the same time wanna drop a line may meet up somewhere along the way, the more the merrier!
Also any suggestion son wheres best to visit on our travels before we reach oz would be great as we are bookin the trip in d nxt few weeks!
Anyway,kinda waffling now, if anyone gets a spare minute to reply that'd be cool, if not sure not to worry! all weill be appreciated!

Hey Karlos,

How lon gare you planning on being away for? Are you planning on working while you're away? Take as much money as you can, plus a credit card if possible. Work out how much money you spend at home in a week - that'll give you a rough idea. But then there's booze to consider, so you might want to double that amount
