Hi Everyone

I just joined this site today and am loving it! I am from South Africa and I work in the airline industry so I get to fulill my dreams of travelling a lot! I am absolutly passionate about travelling but don't really like visiting cities - I much prefer remote places!

I am going to the UK at the end of July to further my studies so will be there for 2 years - I would love to meet other people on this site from the UK so that you can tell me what it is like to live there!! Feel free to email me! I will be based in Oxford.

Looking forward to chatting with you!

Cheers, Tonya

Hi Tonya, Sorry for the delayed reply, but welcome!

It''s a great place to hang out, dream of traveling and basically avoid work

A couple of things that may be of use:
Firstly, I'm from the UK, and studied in Oxford, living there for about 5 years, and still have many friends there and go back quite regularly, so can definitely help you out there - anything you want to ask/know (even really stupid stuff), feel free to chuck at me.

Secondly, i see you have a dream about crossing Africa. I've got a similar one (i was actually supposed to have left in Jan for a years trip Nordkapp - Cape Agulhas), but events got the better of me ). I still dream to do it in the next few years, so we can talk about that as well! Ian (IMonaghan) is another regular here with a similar plan.

Enjoy TP and happy travelling,
Rich
