I am not sure where exactly to begin, but I have been using this website as a learning tool since I realised that my dream of going travelling was really materialising about 6 or more months ago. Its a great source of first hand info. I have realised though that I have used Travellerspoint in the wrong way and not getting involved in any threads and I want to correct that by starting my own!
I will be leaving around the 14th of September 2011 on a trip with 2 of my best friends, travelling through Scandinavia, Russia, China, round South East Asia and finishing up in Australia and New Zealand. This will be happening over the course of 6-8 months depending on fund and other implications.
I was wondering If any experienced travellers would offer any last minute advice in the few weeks we have remaining, and if there are any travellers leaving at a similar time that we maybe crossing paths with along the way!
Hopefully I will be able to offer advice to people seeking info as I travel. I also intend to start my blog on here within the next few days!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
If you go to Denmark you would probably like to visit Copenhagen, the cleanest capital in Europe, the little mermaid, nice colored buildings, Tivoli Garden, http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/see-and-do/top-10-attractions?galleryitem=tivoli%20gardens , you will meet "the happiest people on Earth", but should be prepared, Denmark is quite expensive.
If you prefer a smaller city Odense is a fairytale town (H.C. Andersen was born here), is perfect to relax, enjoy green spaces (spring-summer time of course), nice bars and restaurants.

I'm currently on my trip as I'm writing this, been on the road now for over a month and I'm currently in China. Your trip sounds cool, looks like your doing things an opposite way around though, but I believe we still might Be in south east Asia in feb. So there is a chance we could meet up, when you setting off, are you all booked and ready to go?
