I'm planning on starting my trip in May 2004. Sarting in
London - J'berg-Bombay overland to Goa fly to Dehli overland/fly to Katmandu -trivandrum- Columbo (sril lanka)-Bangkok overland to Ho Chi Minh fly - Perth overland to Sydney fly-Auckland-fiji -LA- UK
This is the plan so far probably for around 9-10 months, if anyone has any tips about my itinary eg if flights between Bombay-Katmandu are cheap or any suggested routes for any of the overland travel, i would really appreciate your comments.
A little about me i am 25 and work as a mental health nurse in th NHS, i've been dreaming about doing a stint of travelling since a young age and have now been nursing for a couple of years so have something established to come back to (not neccesarily a good thing.... i might not want to come back! ) So i will have saved for a year by the time i go, i'm starting to plan a few bits, so came across this website and thought i'd ask for your perils of wisdom!
I am both excited and nervous at the prospect of doing this alone, so any positive "i've done it....it's a breeze" type comment would also go down a treat.
I doubt i can be of much use in the league of experienced traveller, but if anyone is visitng the UK i may be able to be of some help, particularly London.
I look forward to chatting to you
