Hi, My name Lucy, im 24 and from England (cumbria), I have been single for the last 7 months and decided lifes to short to just stay in the same place so have decided to go travelling. I have got together loads of advice from mates that have travelled and have family in Dubai, America & Oz. Im currently going solo and most my friends are settled or have commitments so im looking for a travel buddy....preferably someone who likes a laugh, outgoing, funny sense of humour, laidback and generally loves a laugh! The places i would like to go are Thailand (full moon party etc), Oz (working), china (maybe), America, Dubai & figi... im pretty flexible tho.....if you have any advice or are thinking the same message me :)

Cheers Lucy xx

Thanks for all the Replys.... much appreciated.

To be fair the plan in my head it pretty vauge! I want to see as much as i can but obviously it all depends on how much more i can get saved this year.

Asia is defo the place i want to start and wouldnt mind seeing as much of that country as possible...china im not really bothered about... n figi thats somewhere id like to see!

im up for going anytime after october 2011 because by that point i hope to have saved my small fortune to be able to do everything.

Im happy to meet up with anybody i meet on here n think its pretty cool to stay in touch.

I would ideally like to start my travels with someone just so im not too scared going solo so happy to start with someone...:)

Cheers for the Replys again...its going to be one exciting year looking forward to seeing the world and partying hard :) xx

Oh hey Lucy!
Just a heads up: I hear it's still "rainy season" in Thailand in oct. Nov seems to be the beginning of better travelling weather there.
I too am looking to travel and seem to be in the same situation as you (solo female traveller, frnds getting married and popping out babies w no time to go to full moon parties lol). I haven't set any timelines or plans just yet but this site seems to be a great travel resource. Reading the forums w comments from like minded people is refreshing and inspiring- thanks:)
