im looking to go on a RTW journey or travel to as many countries/places as possible.i dont have anything booked yet but want to go to asia oz nz the states and possibly canada.i dont have a time scale but eant to get away for at least a year.ive had enough of the same boring 7-5 job and living in a quiet boring town.if anybody is interested in planning a trip or if you have it all booked but want a travel mate/mates let me know.
I am going traveling in June 2005 with 2 best friends and 2 people i dont really know so it will be interesting. We are going to Thailand for 4 weeks, Bali for 4 weeks, Austrailia for 9 months and NZ for 4 weeks so if you are wanting friends to meet up with then we will be there!
hi bettyboo thanks for replying.ive been on another site looking for travel mates to go with but no luck yet.ive got the funds its just planning the whole trip now but thought it would be better to go with someone else or a group as its my first time
Hi Reece - just to boost the old confidence a bit - I was nervous of not meeting up with peeps on my RTW tour as it was my first trip and everybody kept telling me I would and I thought it was just something to say to give me the courage to go - but (except for first two days in OZ where I was a bit shy) I have been travelling from 1st November until now and I have not been alone once If anything it´s hard to have a bit of time on my own!! You should form a group easy enough on your tour - esp. if you do a work OZ, NZ or Canada programme!! Just to assure you that you won´t be alone and travelling alone is better because you have more independance and freedom!! However, on the otherhand, if you still want to travel with others - it´s good for bringing prices down and if you all want to do something adventurous together like a skydive or a trek in the Australian Outback without the cost of a tour!! So that is a pro also!!
