@ Craig, I will be in Nz for Sept too... world cup!
I think i will probably get to the WC of the US too late to meet up with you guys, but maybe just about LA on my way out. I would be in New orleans for end of may/beginning of June if anyone is around...
Deffo WC!! I'm hoping to have my tickets sorted pretty soon as I currently work in the industry. Finger crossed!! And I've got a few pals who live in NZ, thankfully nowhere near Christchurch! Awful scenes!!
I'm going to be getting into New Orleans around 2nd week in June myself, leaving on the 19th aprox to head west. Are you going to be about?
No real plans yet mate. I've got friends in Aus and my best mate lives in Bali so going to just take it as it come really. Deffo Sydney for NYE and possibly Crimmy? I'm finalising my flights etc etc on Tuesday next week so once that's all done i can then start booking key dates for accom!
How about you mate?
Think I'll be around Brisbane for Christmas and NYE dude, got friends there and couldn't turn down a proper Christmas dinner, no matter how tempting a BBQ on the beach sounded!
Flying to Singapore on 12th Jan then heading up through Malaysia, doing Thailand's West Coast Islands, then mainland Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.. all in about three months!
If you're in LA between 19 June - 3 July give me a shout and we'll go for a few beers! My facebook's http://www.facebook.com/amrhart if you're on it!
oh Adam! its all about Xmas at the beach with a barbie for me!!! even though im still debating whether it ll be NZ or OZ... might just head over to Sydney for xmas /NYE then back to NZ for a bit longer, we ll c. still plenty of time until then.
@ Craig, at the moment i should be in New Orleans for the 29th May to 4th June, however i saw that there is a festival on the week before, so now thinking if i should change dates around as it would be ace to be there for a blue etc festival! Once you have your dates pm me and we can work something out im sure.
would be good as well sharing a car rental on the west coast if we had the same itinerary!
@MissyT, I think my dates are pretty done now to be honest. I'm going to fly to Miami on June 2nd and chill for about 6 days, taking in the keys and the everglades etc etc. Then I'm heading to my mates, who lives in St Petersburg, for about 5 days, get pampered! Then drive round to New Orleans I reckon, along the panhandle, and stay there til the 18/19th June, when I'll fly over to LA and then start the east coast trip! I fly to Lima on the 5th/6th of July so I've got until around then to do all of San Fran etc etc.
It would be amazing to share rental costs etc etc and travel with someone else so yeah, if the dates suit then deffo!!
get me on facebook, Craig Hoskins (Picture of Thailand Islands for profile pic)
Hope everyone's still excited about their travels!!
@Adam, I've added you mate so deffo beers on the east coast!
Ive booked and will be travelling to Thailand in Nov 2011
I will be going to bangkok, pattaya, ching mai and phuket
if your in thailand in novemember let me know hun x
Thats a good time, i fly into thailand on the 31st October, thats basicly the same route i was going to do
just added you on FB (greek letters) but obviously forgot to add a personal message to identify myself!!! LoLzer
It's nice to know that there are lots of female travelers like me who love to travel solo! I am proud to say that I have traveled around Southeast Asia alone! It is one of the best things I have done in my entire life.
Anyway, I would have to ask what are the things you usually bring when you are traveling alone? I hate bringing lots of stuff with me, just the basics--tee and jeans, my passport of course, my travel insurance, documents, basic hygiene stuff... things like that. How about you guys?
[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]
i will only be going in May for my first big travels, cant wait. I have started wondering too what other girls would bring along. I mean i read about how difficult it can be for example to get hold of sanitary items in some place. But how about make up? does anyone bother bringing that along? im not much of a girly girl anyway but would be interested in hearing how female travellers handle their packing in regards to those female things :-P
