Hi everyone,

I am 25 and live in Brighton, UK.

Due to work, I can't travel as planned in 2010, so am now I’m looking for a travel buddy to travel with on a round the world trip!! 12 months plus in 2011.... lets see where we end up!!

No plans of yet and loads of money to save in the mean time, but I want a first timer like me who will plan with me the best trip ever!! Either it be a boy or a girl, I would prefer someone English and
I am looking for someone who will be impulsive, adventurous, a thrill seeker, who will do volunteer work of need be, rough it if we have too, like water sports, hiking, trekking off the Beaton track, road trips, who is honest, reliable, open minded, has a great sense of humour and who will plan and decide on what activities we do along the way together. Basically someone who will try anything once!
I am all of these things, plus fairly level headed and I am looking for someone similar.

I thinking 2011 at some point, basically as soon as we both would have enough money to do it and do it well. But this would give us great time to plan our route and research some great places to visit.
I am up for going anywhere, but would like to see the following Auz, USA, Fiji, NZ, Asia, Europe, India, Africa, Egypt etc...

Anywhere and everywhere!!

Let me know if you’re interested

Hi there,

that sounds so cool. I have had such trouble in finding someone. People jsut dont seem to want to buddy up for a long haul trip that I have in mind.

I would be so up for talking more about your plans. Email me.

Im wanting to do the RTW in the new year or so, although like you say - it is tricky finding definates.

Many people love the idea but dont want to take it much further, lots of planning required - Im doing my research etc.. how to keep the house on while I travel & what have you

Hi all!

I'm a Canadian student and I'm planning something similar! I'm heading over to Europe in Sept. 2010, and planning on checking out eastern europe-ish until the end of the year. After that I would really like to see the middle east Jan-Feb 2011 and would welcome a travel buddy.

For anyone who posted above, let me know if you're interested and maybe we can cross ideas?

Hello mopsey1985,

Are you only interested in one travel buddy?
I signed up to this site looking to do a similar RTW, but I was thinking that planning with a small group is better in case somebody drops out.
I'm a first timer for this type of trip, but I've wanted to do this for a long time.

I'm interested in talking about this with all you folks.
