thailand/vietnam/cambodia/phillippenes/china
so it would b great to find a travel mate to join me on my travels if it b for the whole 6 months or just part of it
as i said before i have not made major plans so am flexible to change to accomadate people traveling with me
ie were and when and for how long
i dont mind if u just want to hook up to have a beer or a coffe and a chat about traveling or wether u want to join me on the traveling for a day or a week or the whole 6 months thats up to u
i am easy going friendly and up for a laugh
but i am backpaking so dont bother joi9ning me if u want 5 star accomadation and expensive ways to travel or live as it aint going to happen as i am traveling for 6 months and aint got the money to just blow on high price hotels ext
ok hope to here from u soon and if i dont enjoy your travels

Hi
im a vietnamese and i'm so glad to hear that u'r having plan to travel
around south east asia countries.I think that my country is a best place for u with warmly people and many interesting things to discover...I think that i will be a free companion to show U around Hanoi and some provinces nearby.
Tet is now coming in Vietnam,its a biggest traditional festival with Vietnamese so i think it's the best time to start ur travel.;)

Hey there,

I'm going to be in SE Asia for about 3 months or so in March. I'm going to India for about 6 weeks prior and then onto the Southeast after that. No hard plans yet, but definitely into going to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand etc. Depending on where you'll be about mid-March perhaps we could meet up for a bevvie and a chat.

Take care,
Beth
