Hey Jo,

I will be still out there early next year probably in OZ so if you're around there maybe we can meet up :)

It was scary at first, but I enjoyed the freedom of it, it was lovely to get on the plane just me and my backpack. There were times when I missed having someone to share it with though, which is why I want to go with someone this time. I met lots of people in the hostels though.

Hi Suzi,

I'm planning for World Youth Day event in Madrid this coming August, and prior to it, dropping by Gibraltar for Youth Arise International Event. I'd love to travel somewhere either in UK or Europe for about 1 1/2 weeks before heading back to Malaysia by the 1st week of September. At the moment I don't have companion yet. A few of them are planning on Europe trip but they are staying longer over in Europe, while the rest will be returning to Malaysia straight.

Let me know what you think please :)

Hehe. I'm on strict budget. But I'm pretty clueless about traveling in UK/Europe.

Cindy - I'm going to work in Tenerife for a while in April, so not sure of my plans after that now. I still want to see other parts of Europe and make it to OZ.

Tom - I will probably be in Australia around the same time as you, was hoping to stay there for quite a while, and def be there for Christmas and New Year, if we are around the same area maybe we could meet up. I know OZ is massive. Be nice to be around people esp around Christmas etc.

Starline - Italy sounds kl definitely on my to see list, when were you thinking though?

Hi Suzi,

I know how you feel :-) I spent 4 months travelling the Far East, Australia and NZ in 2010. I returned last weekend having spent 6 weeks travelling in South America, had the most amazing time - now I am off again in March to see Central America :-D

We have the rest of our lives to work hey?? so Enjoy it! :-)
