i'm almost booked up for leaving the UK early Sept 2010, and heading to Bangkok... plan is to join a tour and roam to Singapore over 14 days before flying into Cairns. Hope to spend roughly 6 weeks travelling from Cairns to Melbourne - been checking out the Oz Experience bus pass for this - then in to Auckland for 2 weeks. After Auckland, i'll be heading into Fiji for 7 days before hitting the states (LA, NY) to end my trip before heading home for Christmas.
At the moment, i'm travelling alone... friends that were interested now have houses, babies, buns in the oven or would just rather drink every weekend and simply can't afford it...
Just waiting for the go ahead from work to allow me 4 months leave and i'll get this booked. If not granted leave, i will still be heading out at the same time, to the same places but will just extend my trip by a few months and hopefully pick up some work while in Oz.
Anyone planning a similar route or hoping to be same place, same time?... Give us a shout. Would be great to meet some like minded travellers before setting off ;-)
Hi, I'm planning to do some travelling to NZ about Oct time and might stop off in Oz first, planning to stop off at Hong Kong /Signapore and US on the way round. No concrete plans yet on my route just looking at what i can afford and where i fancy, there is so mush out there making a decision is difficult isn't it!
If you are going to be about at the same time then it would be good to meet up and see a friendly face just let me know
Im doing pretty much the exact trip, but in reverse lol. Im heading off mid Sept. NY first, staying for a few days then off on a tour across North America, dipping in to Canada, ending in LA. Few days there, then going to Fiji for some island hopping. Then to Auckland, Kiwi experience bus pass down to Christchurch. Then flying to Sydney and exploring the east coast using a Oz Experience bus pass, then seeing the West coast, before flying out of Perth - to singapore.. and home! Going for a year, all booked up now!
Shame we arent going the same way, mightve bumped in to each other. Anything you wanna chat about let me know x
hi, i am from singapore and haven't been to bangkok for a long time ... would love to join you people hong kong is great too, the air tickets from singapore to these locations are dirt cheap at the moment, but not sure about during Sept.
