Finally my trip is booked and only last minute preparations to sort out.

My name is Ryan and I'm a 25 year old, single, engineer from Manchester.

I'm flying from Manchester to Thailand on the 16th February this year I'll be travelling in Thailand for a month where I hope to go North to Chang Mai and check out the elephant trekking. I also want to see Koa Toa, Ko Phan knang* and Ko Phi Phi on the other side. I might do some diving in Koa Toa. I want go to a full moon party if the timing is right. I'll probably avoid Phuket and the other middle age man destinations which I hear are overpriced and packaged style.

After Thailand I will head to Cambodia maybe Vietnam for a few days and then work my way down to Malaysia and Singapore where I will fly to Australia on the 16th April. I suspect I will need to get an internal flight from Vietnam to KL or somewhere in Malaysia.

I have 6 weeks to 'do' the east coast of Aus working my way up from Sydney to Cairns.
I want to do some surfing, skydiving, bungee-jumping and all that kind of crazy stuff.

Finally I will have a month in NZ working my way from North to South taking in as much as I can.

I'll be there in June so hopefully I can try skiing for the first time.

Let me know if you are anywhwere the same time as me and maybe we can meet up for a drink.

Hi mate

I'm 21 from Portsmouth and heading out to Sydney in February, heading up the East Coast and will be in New Zealand for around June, July time and hope to catch some skiing aswell!

Are you looking at doing any work on the way round or just going for leisure!?

If you fancy meeting up in Oz or New Zealand let me know buddy and we'll have a drink or something!

Hi Tom

My trip is purely leisure, I'm on the move quite a lot so without extending my trip there wont be much working.

We will have to meet up along the way like you say, maybe you can give me a few skiing tips! Is this your first big trip? It is for me, I've travelled in Europe and stuff but never actually travelled properly. Cant wait!!
