Hi guys and gals,
just thought I would say hello to you all and also thank the admin's for letting me join these forums.

I have been planning my RTW trip for ages ,only in my head though... I might carry out my plans for real one day :)

I am hoping to gain a lot of ideas from the many experienced travellers that come onto these forums.

BR,
Peter

Welcome, Peter! Is Portsmouth where they have the ferry over to Caen? I'd meant to take it but chickened out over the great potential for seasickness. Ah well, maybe next time!

Hope to see you 'round the forums!
Tway.

Are there pills for seasickness? 1 minute on a boat and I feel like shit, that is why I avoid boats!!!

Even if those worked, it's everyone else's seasickness that would......

If I have to take the ferry I always have a good old british fry up.. seems to work well for me.

Hi Peter!

Welcome to TP!!!

Everyone is correct - TP contains an enormous amount of information to help with your planning. My dad and I would "plan" our RTW trip using the Sears & Roebuck catalogs. We'd pick out tents and boats and equipment, detailing what we'd do with it all. Unfortunately, we never made the trip. But, maybe one of these days Beerman and I will actually get the chance. At least I'll be prepared!! (In my head, that is...)

Wouterrr - there are pills for motion sickness - Gravol/Dramamine (depending on where you live). I use them all the time. I just don't have the same problem with the other passengers as Tway does. ;)

Anyway Peter - welcome again and hope to see you in the forums!!!! ;)
