First of all, I hope you can all excuse my ignorance and naivety on the subject as this is the very beginning of my information search.
Basically, I finish university this year and I'm planning to visit some of the spots I've spent the last two years longingly pondering over peoples experiences, photos and blogs about certain places. I've got a bit of an idea of where I want to go but I suppose I'll need a lot more information before I get there.
This is where I want to start
Thailand - have a little party, take in the sites and relax!
Vietnam - Love the lush green coastline.
Laos - Would love to go river tubing down that famous river (can't remember what its called?) spend a little time partying around there!
Then I'd like to go somewhere more western and work for a while, so either
Australia - Always been fascinated by it
New Zealand - Like the look of NZ more than Aus
So either of those, whichever was the most convenient.
At the moment, I think I could have about £4,000 - £5,000 by January 2011 (When I want to go). Is that enough, if it can be done for less then that would be amazing!! This total includes flights, materials etc. Is it best to just grow some cajones take the dive and fly out to kuala lumpar and see where it goes from there? I'm planning on going alone or with 1 other friend, would prefer to go on my own though!!
Any help is appreciated.
