Hey All
Names John and joined this for advice and research before embarking on what I had previously thought was impossible.
Have been working in Plymouth UK for 2 years trying to get life career thing but hey ho redundancy.
So looking on the bright side means no career to worry about for a while so time to go back to Wales earn some bucks and go away on my own and see what else is about on this crazy planet we got :-D

Plan roughly at present is

Thailand 1 or 2 months. bit of volunteering, lots of chillin out.
Australia from Sydney going North till I find something to change my direction.
Plan is to work in OZ to fund everything and basically keep going till I run out of steam, money or get bored.
Gonna leave Mid October hopefully if I can get the cash sorted.

I expect I'll be on here quite a bit (mainly to stop me going to the pub)

Any advice at all appreciated (as I really have no idea other than get VISA, get plane ticket, get jabs, get money, get gone lol)
Or if anyone can tell me anything that I simply must do please do.

Oh yeah and anyone wants to hook up anywhere in the world for a beer where I am at, then cool and I'll see you there,

Meeting strangers, thing I am most excited about.

Peace love n rock n roll.

Hey John,

Welcome to Travellerspoint! Good to hear you're looking on the bright side of life and heading out on what sounds like a great journey! I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice here on TP. I suggest trying the region-specific forums if you're looking for advice about specific countries or regions. Also take a look at the Travel Guide.
