Hey there everyone- I'm Amy 22 from Essex.

I am 100% sure I'm going travelling this year but looks like it will be alone.. I would love to find someone who wants to go out to Thailand in aug/ sept this year so then I wouldn't feel so lost and confused when I arrive. Looking at all the other forums here everyone seems to know where to go and when but I haven't got a clue.

After a couple of months in Thailand I will then go to Australia until iv had enough-which I don't think will be ever! I would love to meet someone that is thinking of doing a similar thing?

Thanks guys hope to hear back xx

Hey im in same boat as you Amy, im 23 from warwickshire wanting and tryin to save enough for Thailand in september! Dont realy have plans coz am still terrified of the thought of going on my own! lol. And am struggling to know where to start, iv found STA travel quite good. Id be up for goin oz after for couple of months to.

I guess realy we should just book a flight then will definatly know its happening but it is scarey!

Hi Amy,

If you're starting with Thailand you'll meet hundreds of people like you so don't worry one bit - Bangkok is like a central hub for backpackers and if you spend even just a day there you'll soon be full of information and advice on where to go, what to do and most likely will have found a good crowd of people to do it with.

I went out there on my own on a whim and didn't have a clue what to expect before I arrived. It was a breeze, I wouldn't bother making a plan as you probably won't stick to it.... you'll most likely just be bumbling around with people you meet and feeding off stories and tips you hear on the way.

You're going to have an amazing time!
