Having worked a dull office job for just over a year i have decided its time for change!! Anyone who has been stuck in an office chair for 8 hours a day 5 days a week will understand where i am coming from.

I have never been travelling before (only ever hols with my friends) but am looking for a bit of an ad hoc life experience. I have hardly any money and am thinking of heading straight for australia in Jan, with the prospect of just seeing what happens when i get there!!!

i am happy to work my way around - to see and do things as i go and am happy without having to have plans set out!!! i would really really like someone to come with me - none of my friends are up for it as we are all getting a little settled in our ways now at 24 years old.

Hi Sarah

So you've decided to bite the bullet and just go, seems like a decision you will never forget!!
I used to work in an office years ago and think i only lasted about a week (just couldn't get comfortable in my chair haha)

Im 25 and like you many of my friends are either settled in to a mundane 8-5 or are married and settling down :( well not for me lol i decided a while ago that it was about time i packed up and ventured out into the world. i'm leavin it all behind and going to SE Asia for 6months then onto Oz for a year!!

Anyway you seem to be in the same sort of mindset as me (and many many others).
So what are your plans as of now??

Hi Matt,

Plans....well i dont have many of them which i think could be the problem, along with the major lack of funds!!! have you saved loads and loads ....and are you going on your own ?? :)

Yea the dull 9-5, ground hog day, drinking tea eating biscuits and having an early night opposed to a night of pure carnage, because hang overs and office work dont go well together (i always have an overwhelming desire to fall asleep at my desk!).........Time for change!!!!! combined with an adventure!;)

Now i am faced with the task of where to go, how to plan? Should i plan? will i be ok without any serious funding?

Are you going on your own??

Hey Sarah and Matt.

I am look to also start travelling about Sarah, I am the same lame job and want more from life.

So I am saving up now and plan on hitting SE Asia.. Thailand most likely, Its cheap and nice there.. so think its a fairly safe option to pick for the first time? maybe I am totally wrong but gotta go and see!

anyway, feel free to message me? maybe we could sort something out?
