Hi my name is James from Newcaslte, England
I start my 10month travelling experience at the end of May and its just dawned on me that I will be heading accross the world by myself! Very scary but also extremely excited as well. Been saving for what seems like forever to go away. Start in Thailand and then working my way accross SE Asia for 4months. Will be heading to Aus in around October time and spending xmas and new year in Sydney before finishing my trip in the USA for about a month.
Can't wait to be honest! Is there anyone else doing anything similar? If so would like to hear from you. Would be nice to travel with someone who is equally as new to this as me! lol Roll on May!!!
Whoo your trip sounds amazing!! I too am going solo, flying to Bangkok on 21st May and going to trave around there for a month, then onto Oz for a year!
What age are you, where are you flying from??
There are loads of people on this doing the same thing so hopefully we will both meet loads people, I was abit scared when I booked my flights but now I'm super excited!!
Hi Cathy. I'm 24. Flying from Heathrow like, which is a bit of a trek from Newcastle but flights were cheaper and guessed am gonna have to get used to long bus journeys! haha
I'm literally counting the days till i go away. How old are you? Where you heading from Bangkok? I'm gonna be heading north towards Laos and then make my way down Vietnam. Where you travelling to in Oz? I'm hoping to get work out there on the east coast and maybe stay a few extra months if possible.
urit all my names bill 21,flying out from heathrow 24th may to bangkok thailand for 1 month then going over to oz easr coast for a year on a working visa anyone in similar boat??good to hear back
I'll be spending a bit longer than u in SE Asia like but also gona be on a working visa for OZ. Hoping to get work there and say for as long as possible! U got work already lined up of just going to find it when there?
Cant decide wot to take with me. U going with bare minimum and just buying stuff when ur out there?
urit james i hvnt got work planned but iv heard its pretty easy to get work,especially after all the flooding!if you do fruit picking for 3 months they allow you to stay for an extra year to travel some more which is good, i havnt decided what to take yet like you bare minimum and get most stuff out there,il prob takes a weeks worth of clothes,documents a camera and thats about it ! what time is your flight to bangkok?are you staying there long?
Flight to bangokok is 10pm from heathrow. Wont get there till 5pm local time on 26th May. Will likely stay there for a few days just to get me bearings n that. U just stayin in Thailand or u travelling to Cambodia, Vietnam as well?
Heard a lot of people do fruit picking in Oz like so will probs end up doin the same thing. Apparently its pretty hard work tho! lol How'd you hear about the extra year thing if u work for 3 months?
found out on the goverment website,are you flying with emirates?i think im just gunna travel thailand for a month then head out to oz.im staying in bangkok for a couple nights then mayby head to phuket for a bit then koi samui then to the full moon party on ko panghan.should be a laught!
