thx Ellyse - I'll try and look you up if I pass through Shanghai. Its always good to meet people who actually live in the places you travel through (makes the trip much more interesting)

For anyone out there following this thread, I'm still looking for ppl with similar plans. So if you're off to Asia around the same time, drop me a line or post a reply - even if its just to compare notes!!

hi guys

i grew up in singapore and i'll be back home for my summer vacation and will be working at a backpacker's hostel in singapore to pass the time/meet likeminded people/earn some extra allowance, so let me know if singapore's on any of your lists and if you need recommendations on where to go, where to stay, and how exactly one should go about figuring the strange brand of english we call singlish.

i've received so much helpful advice from this forum, just trying to give back a little! : )

debbiey/catwong - I probably wont be in SE Asia until December at the earliest, but thx for taking the time to post

If anyone else is out there following this thread - I still havent managed to find anyone with similar plans, so do get in touch if you're thinking of a similar trip. ..

Just to recap, I'll be starting off in India in September, moving onto Myanmar in December and then the rest of SE Asia through to April. After that, I'll probably head on to China, Tibet and Nepal.

Hi all, I am a 32YO male,Indian born Aussie, and I am an RN by profession.
Anyway, I am in India roaming around and finding things to kill time. I
am in Northern India, Punjab to be specific. Anyway, this is virtually
the centre of northern India. I lead a quite social life, but dont get
to travel due to lack of company in these matters. I would extend my
invitation to you for socialising and travelling and just relaxing,
while you visit India.
Any visitors to this area of all races and sex are invited to make contact. Maybe we can go backpacking around, and see various places. I would
dutch with you on all expenses. Hope to hear from you sometime, soon.

Hey Stoosh,

I'll be in Thailand in the beginning of Dec. My plans are to head to Vietnam>Laos>Cambodia>Malayasia>Myanmar>India>Tibet>Nepal>etc. I have no plans to go in any particular order. I would like to hook up with people heading to any of these countries. I'm planning to stay in SE Asia for about a year, who knows? Anyways send me a message if anyones interested.

hi Stoosh,

I'm a fellow londoner but am leaving for Thailand on Tuesday so won't be able to meet up I'm afraid as i've still got so much to do..

I'm a first time traveller myself (28 yr old / career break) and I'm planning to do Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam(probably mid Nov) and then on to Auz and NZ Dec/Jan.

Sounds like I'll be out there (SE Asia) ahead of you but if anyone else fancies meeting up along the way for a drink or to compare notes that'd be fun.

Have fun!

Hey Stoosh,

I'm a fellow Londoner, 25yr old female,and am planning to go on a RTW trip in Nov. I am on the brink of booking my ticket and plan to be in SE Asia for three months, landing in BKK mid November. I want to visit Cambodia, Vietnam & Laos and head on via Singapore onto Oz.

Obviously you are planning on heading out earlier than me, but wanted to say good luck and if you want to chat about plans etc, get in touch. Always good to voice ideas and share info!

Have fun!
