@tinkertaaf Nice post. Since I am from India, just keen on knowing, which one are you? The hater or the lover? I would understand if you are a hater...

@CaptainRon Thanks. I'm a lover!

@tinkertaaf Good to know! I posted a bunch of travelling tips for India here:

Just wanted to know from you if they make sense from a traveler point of view. For example, I never recommend a first time India traveller to travel on rail in anything below an AC3 compartment. I also mention how you can get the tickets at a very short notice. Being a hardcore patriot and being a frequent traveller to the western world, I usually try to help tourists in India in whatever manner possible. Would like your comments/additions/modifications on the general points I mentioned so that I can make a more comprehensive post for my blog. :)

Thanks so much for your tips Irish girl... fair play to you traveling that long by yourself!
My friend just emailed me thats in Vietnam and advised me not to travel alone there that some1 tried to pick pocket her and their are a lot of scammers...what a pitty!!
I might try go with a tour company to cambodia , Vietnam.. may be expensive but maybe its better to be safer than sorry!

Have you tried there were lots of travellers on there wanting to do your route. I am planning to do the same as you and am meeting some other girls on 17th Jan, which I guess is a couple of weeks to early for you.

Good luck

a bunch of you people sound like you want to do similar to me so i thought id just put it out there, i might actually paste my post here if thats alright, you never know right :)
let me know what you think?

im 17 turning 18 in early 2011 though.
really outgoing, responsible, trustworthy (starting to sound cocky :S )

:) no but im really looking for people to travel with because everyone is so skint broke and boring.
ive got the financial side down, i havent got the planning down really but hoping we could do it together
since im really flexible with destinations. I really would love to go to Asia, Europe and USA though.
Im actually thinking ill leave Aus in Feb though with another girl for Japan and then to China for the New Year,
so if we met up over there in Feb that might be great.
or if theres anyone going around February anyway maybe i could meet up with you and we could go from there?

im really up for anything, just looking for some good people (with no sexual undertones please)
im keen on music festivals, carnival, art scenes, FOOD! ... lets do it :)

ok thanks

I am a 22 year old male from Chicago that just graduated from college and am heading to Bangkok late January as well. I am traveling alone and would be happy to meet up and travel around se Asia with you if you want to meet up. I am very laid back and adventurous and am willing to go anywhere anytime. If you want to meet up in Bangkok once you arrive let me know, I plan on traveling until mid march.

Look forward to the trip!
