Hi, :)

Im Rob. 20 years old, male and from North Wales in the UK.
I am currently bored with my life. I only work around different places whenever work is available. I am joining the army in October this year but I want to travel and work my way around any part of the world. I have £200 cash in my pcoket right now and all the gear I need to travel with.
All I need to do is book the flight to wherever. I want to travel with a buddy preferably a female. I am willing to go anywhere anytime between now and October. Any one interested in this idea? If I find that I love travelling, then I will cancel the idea of joining the army and carry on travelling :D

Thanks Guys.

Rob

You can traveling alone and maybe you'll find your partner on the way you travel

Thanks for the replies guys..
I have thought about travelling alone and finding somebody along the way, but I am worried that I wont find anyone (Stupid really)
I will still wait for somebody i guess, but while I do that, I will save up mpre cash and then just wait.

Thanks :)

Hey bud I have traveled alone many of the times and its awesome just mingle around and that's how you meet cool interesting people from all over the world......sometimes though it can be a little dangerous but your a guy so it won't be that dangerous..... So where do you want to go? If you like to party you should go to Barcelona or Rome...Oh yeah even Spain has great islands to party as well......... just have fun enjoy life your young so explore the world don't let anything hold you back......:)

If you go by yourself it forces you to meet people.

I went to OZ by myself and was never alone. not for a minute. It actually got a little frustrating at one time.

the only way you will not meet people is if you go out of your way to be rude with people. even if you just sit and stare at a wall someone will come up to you and start a conversation.

I met a girl trying to start up a grill. we travelled for 8 weeks after that. she introduced me to some Israeli dude she met camping along the way and he ended up being my brother from another mother.

once I was sitting on a couch just watching the olympics and a girl invited me on a two-day road trip. she ended up being the coolest person I have ever met in my entire life. we were attached at the hip for like 6 weeks.

point is... you can and will meet people everywhere.

I hope to find people on my trip because it will be much better to share the experience with somebody> U can tell im a beginner in all this stuff haha. If I dont have anybody contact me pretty soon, Im just going to go and see what happens. That way i think it will be more exciting to see what happens. Planning never really works anyway!

Hey!

This sounds like a great idea, wish I could just up and leave! I'm planning on going travelling in December/early Jan (a bit late for you I know) but I'm currently going on my own too...and also apprehensive about it like you are.

But I'm sure you'll meet people really easily and I'm sure we'll both be fine on our travels! Good luck with it and I hope you find someone soon! :)
