Hi Guys,

i've only just stumbled upon this great website & all of you out there. I want to plan a long trip abroad, thinking minimum of 6mths or until i run out of money. I don't know exaclty where I'd like to go to first, i'm pretty open, I just know there are a few countries or areas of the world that i'd like to visit & because I've not visited many places before outside of Europe, I am pretty open to adding more on to my list.

South Africa

I have a few things to tie up before I can make this trip, but the hardest parts are over. I am glad to say i'm finally at a stage whereby I can Actually dedicate more time to cultivating this idea. I've always wanted to go travelling but it just always seemed like a good idea which was totally impossible for me to carry out before the age of 60!!

Now though i'm not even 27 & i've already managed to start some balls rolling. I'd like to leave next year. Earlier the better, I don't mind Jan 2010. I'm happy to be away 6mth-1yr depending on how many places I'm visiting & of course COST. (I rather take the whole 2010 & spend it travelling)

how to start this all - as yet still uncertain. I know the internet & hopefully some of you guys from forums like this will all play a Huge role in my planning this trip.

Also like to know if anyone else is out there reading this who can relate & wants to bat a few ideas about over email & see if we can get some more strcuture to this thing. 2 heads are better than one. Boy or Girl am not bothered.
Woudl be ace to get a travel buddy to start up with. I'd still feel I went it alone in terms of not going with ppl I know.

let me know

Hi Becky
i`m planning on backpacking around SA, possibly namibia & botswana too. i don`t have a time frame yet, but i suspect i`ll be out there for longer than 6 months (more likely 1 year). i`m thinking of starting in mozambique, then the zululand game reserves (Ndumo, Tembe, Kosi & Mkuzi). after that the drakensberg mountains (overnighting in caves), transkei wildcoast and the amatolas.... following all that i would like to head off to namibia thru namaqualand for the flowers & bushmanland.... possibly botswana after that

as i said nothing is set in stone yet, i would like to have plenty of time to explore all the lil surprises on the way! so no strict timetable.

if you`re interested in a chat i`d love to hear from you. i realise you may not be able to commit for all of this but you might fancy some of it.
take care
