Hi guys,

I am a 29 yr old Sales Manager from London, and after a few years deliberating, I have decided to take the plunge and go travelling.

I plan to go to South east asia in Sep '07 with friends, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, possibley starting in Singapore, Malayasia. I'd like to be in Oz for Xmas or New Year so I'd love to hear from anyone who will be there at this point.

I plan to go to Oz on my own, and I'll hold my hands up, it's pretty daunting, so any advice or contact from fellow travellers would be grately appreciated.

Thanks everyone

Sounds brilliant. you only live once! ive spent years saying i was going to do a year in Oz but it seemed so far away, but at 27 its a little closer ;) im heading out at the end of the year not sure when exactly though but i'll be there for Christmas. planning to spend a year, and then i might go to NZ for another year. im from Seychelles and love island life but im ready for something different. lived in england for a couple of years too but island life drew me back but now im getting itchy feet! this site looks great and ive already seen loads of helpful tips. not planned my route yet. still doing more reading. the idea of going it alone is daunting though, especially for a girl so i am looking for travel partners!

hey there! I'm planning on being in Sydney for New Year's so maybe we could hook up when I get there at some point?!? I'm a first time traveler as well and am so excited to get this opportunity. I'll be doing it by myself and am hoping to meet new people along the way... hope your trip planning is coming along great... drop me a line if you have a moment :)

Hey, as long as my plans stay the same, then I should arrive in Oz (not sure where yet) just before Christmas. Bit concerned that I'll end up alone for Christmas and New Year's Eve, so would be very happy to meet up with anyone here!

Hey Lee

Like yourself I'll be coming through asia on the way down to Oz and planning on getting to Oz in the first few weeks of the new year after chillin with some mates on the beaches of Thailand over xmas / new year.

Will be on my own in Oz so any company would be greatly appreciated whether it be doing some travelling or just a friendly pint or two.

Plans still a bit sketchy at the moment with me but will be only going to east coast of Oz due to time and money. Let me know how your plans come along.

Hi Lee,

i too am travelling se asia from june to the end of october, then heading over to oz november, travelling on my own which isnt bothering me at all through s e asia, but for some reason it seems a bit daunting to me in oz too.

ill prob be passing you at some point, im starting northern thailand then heading south through the islands, malaysia then flying from singapore to oz. Always glad of company for a few pints, so if u fancy a few on the way, let me know.

Take it easy pal

Flying out to asia mid aug travelling around cambodia, vietnam, malaysia then off to NZ before heading to Oz in mid dec. travelling alone so would be great to catch up with some fellow lone rangers.

Anyone else think hali_girl looks a bit like Brittany Murphy?

This a very good thing by the way
