Good luck and have loads of fun!

I'll be landing in Bangkok early to mid November, female, 25 travelling alone. Here I will begin my RTW trip. Spending 3 months in SE Asia, taking in Cambodia, Loas and vietnam then 3-4 in Oz, then onto NZ - Fiji - Cook Islands - OZ - home via USA.

Let me know how it all goes and get in touch if you'll be in SE Asia when i land.

Amazing Shepwad, my wife and me are leaving around the same time, on the same itinerary, but westward instead of eastward :)

All of you, have the best fun on earth :)
