Hey! I'm a 33yr female looking for a traveling companion/s for the end of Dec. Im starting off with girl friends (and anyone is more then welcome to join us)but i am continuing on my own as they will be returning home end of Jan 09. My trip starts in Indonesia from 27th Dec until 11th Jan 09 then head to Sydney. I will have a three month visa but would only like to stay a month or two then fly up to Thialand and do most of Asia. I only have one problem....dont want to travel to Asia on my own!! The rest of my ticket sends me to NZ, Fiji and LA but i will be changing flights or even cancelling if i find somewhere great!
If anyone is interested please email me back.

If you are a younger person reading this PLEASE dont be put off by an older girl......I'm very young at heart!!!

Just out of curiosity how would someone be able to join you? I’m trying to image how much money I would have to have and the plane tickets I’d have to get and what I would have to bring. I’m afraid I wouldn't be able to make your trip, but I’ve been curious about joining trips before.

Hello mmblarg

The answer to your question is quite simple really! you decide where u want to travel and book your flights, you can change flights after you book them if u want to stay in that country for longer as long as the visa allows you to. You wouldn't have a problem getting a work visa in OZ as you are under 31yrs so you could meet us there and work for a few months then make your way up to Asia where you could also work, this is what most people do for money. Have you thought of voluntary work working with children teaching English, you would get your food and accommodation as part payment.

Regarding how much the ticket will cost you, that depends on where your going. You would live out of a rucksack taking the bare minimum with you.

I'd be interested in joining you if it weren't so soon.. I'm planning a similar route in Sept 09. and also don't want to travel Asia on my own. Curious to weather you will find a partner or not.

hey Lenny, there is a chance i'll be heading to SE Asia in early Feb. Im a bit torn between doing central/south america or going back to SE Asia and doing some more of thailand, laos and cambodia(i spent a month in thailand in april). Im a 24 y/o male, hope that isnt a prob? If it isnt then we can keep in touch and i can let you know my final plan.(i tend to find out where im going when i buy my plane ticket)

Hey Wanderer84

Good to hear from you! Yes def keep in touch on where your gona go. I'm def travelling to Aisa but cant give dates as jet as this depends on when i meet a group of people or person to travel with. If I dont meet anyone by the middle of Feb I will go on my own, so see what happens.
