Hello everyone, im John from Miami Florida 26 m, Im going to my first Asian country ever, I just wanted to know if anyone else on this board is heading that way in that month. Im going for 1 month and wanted to have the time of my life, ive read and talked to people that say that Thailand is so amazing.
Im so so so amazed that a 130 people have viewed and read my post and no one has replied, whats the purpose of coming in and not writing anything?
A number of those views will have been by bots, not by people. A number will have been by moderators (like me) who're looking at each and every post to make certain no spam slips through. A number will have been by people who didn't immediately see that you wrote Thailand backward in the title, and are trying to figure out which place this is that you're going to (being too clever in a thread title might not be all that helpful).
And a number will have been by people who are going to Thailand in October, and are looking for a travel companion, but for one reason or another decided that you probably don't fit their ideal of a travel companion. It might be helpful if you describe a bit in the thread who you are and what your interests are; if you have plans for what parts of Thailand you'd like to see, if you're going there on an absolute minimum budget or rather want to live it up, etc, etc. Basically, think of the questions you'd ask a complete stranger if they asked you to come along to Thailand with them - and then answer them.
Also, if you look through the travel companions forum, you'll see that barely half the threads get any reply at all. Very few people want to commit to travelling together with someone they don't know unless there's a definite "click". That's just the way it is. Doesn't mean it's not worth looking, but don't expect instant success either.
