Well, I used this site in Aussie, and met a cool chick- we ended up driving the great ocean road together. Good experience.

So I figured I'll have another go, and next year from mid-January for up to maybe 3 months I'm going to be travelling around SE Asia..

It'd be awesome to have a travel buddy for part/all of this trip, and I am open to suggestions as to where is awesome to visit.

If you're going to be in Asia at that time, and you'd like to party/trek/have fun/chill out/be hung over with me, then sweet - Drop me a line... :-)

Hi Rory. I'm planning on being in SE Asia during this time as well. I haven't planned anything and probably won't until about a week or 2 prior (but I will have an idea of what I'd like to do much sooner). I went to SE Asia for 3 weeks last year and I loved it. So I want to go back and explore it more and with more time.

Do you know more or less where you want to go and the time you want to spend in each place?

Currently I have no idea really about where I would like to visit, and time frames.. It all depends on how much money I have saved by the time January comes... I think I'm gonna fly in from Christchurch to Malaysia... Would like to go to Thailand, Laos, Indonesia.... I really need to get myself a guidebook and do some research really (also need motivation to do that... haha)

I'm planning a trip to SE Asia Jan 2012 (right around new years) for a few weeks and have no definite plans yet. Do you guys have anything planned yet?

A lot of people are telling me that if you make plans you'll just end up doing something completely different anyway...

I just have the Lonely Planet Asia on a Shoestring Guide for reference... I'm sure the adventure will somehow unravel itself of it's own accord.. :-D

Hey mate,
4 of us (3 aussies and a crazy yank) are going through SE Asia during Jan and Feb (only a short trip due to work commitments), while we have a tour booked for a section of our trip, yeah yeah i know not doing it in backpackers style, we will be hitting up southern thailand for full moon party etc in the first couple of weeks in Jan.

Haven't locked anything in yet but we are then looking to trek from Hanoi down to Hue to then cross into Laos make out way through there then northern thailand back down to bangkok/phuket starting when the tour finishes (start of feb i think from memory)

Hey Rory,

I'm in Jakarta, Indonesia.
When you do arrive here, drop me a message.
If you need some tips about travelling in Indonesia, let me know.
