i'm going travelling at the back end of 2007 with three friends, the only thing is i don't know how reliable they are and think it seems like a bit of a big group and we will all have conflicting opinions of where to go and what to do, i nearly set off on my own this year around the world but changed my mind at the last minute as i thought going round the world on my own was a bit daunting. just wandering what you lot think? i've heard you meet loads of people really easily, i suppose if we don't get along we can go our seperate ways.

that sounds like a good plan to me. i think it also depends on how independent you like to be. i know i feel like i get a lot more out of my travelling experience when i am alone, rather than with someone from back home. i'm a very independent person, and although i love people, i am also very comfortable by myself.

i'll also add that youth hostels are awesome places to meet cool people, and you can travel with them for a couple days...but there's no obligation whatsoever. with friends it can be harder to leave them behind.
