Hi there,

I'm 26 and have decided that I would like to travel for a while, starting later this year. I don't have any plans set in stone but I'm keen to cover a lot of South-East Asia, before possibly travelling down through Malaysia and Singapore before moving on to Australia for a bit. I also like the idea of covering Fiji and the West coast of the US (but that's money permitting). All in all, I'd like to be away for up to a year.

If anyone is thinking of doing the same sort of thing at around the same time then I'd love to hear from you :) a travel companion would be preferable!

Ive been planning my travels for a few weeks now. Ive not booked anything but looking to start the end of october. Here's my rough plan:

Nepal, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Oz, NZ and Fiji.

Sounds pretty similar to you :-)

Im 25 year old woman, hoping to find a travel companion so would be great to hear from you.

Inbox me if you want to talk more

that's cool, sounds like we're in a very similar situation then.

so i was thinking of arriving in Bangkok, then travelling to Krabi-side (already been to Koh Samui but wouldn't mind going back there as well), before travelling to Laos. then working my way around (would like to cover Cambodia and Vietnam as well), before travelling through Malaysia and down to Singapore... apart from a holiday to thailand last year, i've not properly done any backpacking either and slightly nervous about the thing. if you're interested in covering all those places, we should definitely keep in touch!
