You guys who are flipping out over going anywhere by yourself really need to read this and believe it:

Arranging travel buddies in advance for Thailand is completely unnecessary. Period.

Thailand is arguably the the easiest/simplest "foreign" country on the entire Planet Earth for a solo western backpacker. If you stick to the usual guide book places you'll find it absolutely JAM-PACKED with countless other backpackers EXACTLY like you.

It's the perfect destination for a first time solo backpacker who needs to build a little confidence.

Relax... you'll easily meet loads of compatible travel companions once you're there... have fun...

So as of a few hours ago, I was just ditched by my traveling companion on the way to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and possibly Laos. I am a 24 year old female from NYC flying in on the 6th of august and I would love to get in touch with all of you! Please let me know if anyone is interested in linking up and exploring this part of the world with some (very good I must add) company. I must let you all know that I am spontaneous as can be, and I do love my drink. Diving, going on motorcycle tours through Vietnam, floating markets, visiting temples and beautiful beaches are on my list of things to do. Add me on Facebook (Tirzah Sosa) and let's make this happen!

Ha Ha that is so funny that you think you may have waited to late to start your travels(24:)). Im 60 and Im just starting mine for the second time around. Good Luck and have a lot of fun!

I retire next year and if you ever need a travel companion, send me an e-mail. What a hoot.
