Hi all,

Need some advice about going travelling..

I've always wanted to go travelling but do not want to go on my own 'although I wish I could, as none of my friends have ever been interested'. My current boyfriend is also not really interested so he doesn't really push me to do any travelling for longer than 2weeks, and I need pushing otherwise I will look back on my life and regret never going!!

Time is going soo quick and I've just turned 34! Before I know it i'll be thinking about having a child... So I feel I need to go before this happens!!! .. Anyone else feel the same!!? Anyone have some advice?

Hope to hear from someone.. :)

Do it!!! I'm going in Sept!!! Was supposed to go last year and changed my mind, have regreted it ever since!! I don't wanna look back and wish I had done it!!! What's the worst that could happen?? You go and realise it's not for you, then you jump back on a flight home!!! Better to have lived and learnt than not lived at all :-)

Read through some of these posts too, I was rally scared about going on my own and now I'm more excited, there's so many people in the same boat!! Hope this helps xx

So true!! 'better to have lived and learnt'!

Where are you going travelling? Have you organised it on your own or are you going via a company?

Thanks for the advice anyway! :)

I'd quite like to go India or parts of Southeast Asia.. Thailand is lovely i went there couple of years ago!

Very brave going on your own. I should get my act together!!

Good luck anyway

Do it! Life is yours. If you don't follow your heart to do sth, you may regret it in the future. BTW, which country do you want to go? I think China is a good choice. I like Chinese culture, such as Chinese embroidery - snip -. You can see different cultures and know about the country.
