Hi all!

Travel Forums Introductions Hi all!

I've been lurking around these forums for a long time so thought I'd finally join! I adore travelling and first did a RTW in 2005 on the much beaten track of Thailand - Australia - Fiji - USA. Since coming home to Ireland 4 years ago I've done a lot of travel around Europe but also always wanted to do another RTW.
So I finally booked it a couple of weeks ago after a year of planning where to go (and saving like mad!). Myself & boyfriend are flying to Rio at the beginning of June & we can't wait!

The plan is:
South America for four months, including:
Brazil
Argentina
Bolivia
Peru
Ecuador & Galapagos
Chile

Then we're flying to Auckland in October to spend the best part of a year working/travelling around New Zealand on a WHV.
Followed by a few months in Asia including:
Hong Kong
Vietnam
Cambodia
Laos
Thailand
Borneo
and maybe Malaysia

We're planning on spending just over a year and a half away on our dream adventure before accepting we're grown ups who should be doing boring stuff like getting a mortgage

Thanks for reading
