Hey Harrold, do you want to get married?

Sure some day to the right person got to like travelling a lot backpacking style and got to be willing to relocate;)

Great we're in business!

How do you feel about a honeymoon in Bhutan?

Sounds good. Maybe catch up with you when you visit OZ next before we get married

First of all: Thank you all for your replies!

I'm happy that this thread could lead to a marriage... ;-)

Well, we will be traveling from the beginning of January to the end of July next year, so almost seven months in total. I really do think we are up for it, and I just can't wait to leave the office and head for India in January. I have to say that I'm probably not made for traveling 2 years like some people in here, but at least I thought that if someone loved backpacking so much that they would do it for 2 years (or forever), 7 months would just seem like a long weekend trip ;-)

Cheers people, and if someone still has something they wanna say, I'll be scanning this forum till right after Christmas :-)

Thanks again

Settle down in your 30s Harrold? Good God I hope not. I'm officially in my mid 30s and all I think of is travelling (not kids yet!)! We finally got a dog and even put that off for years! Yes, I'll admit, there haven't been any really long ones in a while, but I'm always hoping and always planning.

Stian, my first trip was for 5 months. I had to cut it short from 9 months and head home for my cousin's wedding. Although, I'm glad to have been a part of it, I felt as though I'd just found my stride when I had to head back home. I stood in customs just inside the door for a good 15 minutes before finally accepting that it was over. When I did return, I realized that I could never work for someone else ever again and began freelancing. I learned that I valued my freedom above all else...and I began a cross-continental relationship. My second big trip was for 6 months, again cut short by another cousin's wedding...and I could have stayed there much longer. Now, I just assume that I'll try to travel for at least 1-2 months out of the year. It's just another part of the annual budget!

You're about to open up a whole new world, literally! Follow your instincts and go with it! Happy travels.
