Hi Guys,

I have been thinking about going travelling for many years now and feel the time is right for around October 2012 to set off and go... Only one thing holding me back is going on my own, my family aren't keen on the idea and I would love some company to share the experience with!! If there is anyone in the same situation as me I would love to hear from you... Feel I can't settle before I get the travel bug out my system!! No real plans for destinations/timescale etc as yet but 100% want to visit Australia, New Zeland and Thailand.

Hope to hear from you soon xxx :)

WOW I'm so glad someone else is Danielle, where are you thinking of going? Im pretty flexible was thinking 6 months at first see how I get on but will always stay on if I love it... Which I probably will !! I live in Derby near Nottingham so quite far away :) Are you looking for someone to go with? xx

Hi girls, im heading out to oz in nov 2012 with my friend who is only staying 3 weeks. Il prob be flying from Glasgow. Ive got my whv for a year which is amazing, also planning to do 3 months rural work to get an extension for a further year.

Iv wanted to do this for years, but 2012 it is. I was a bit scared of being alone but this site has been good as most people are going solo. Iv been talking to people on here and organising a get together for xmas and new year in sydney if anyone fancies.
Im going to be in oz for 10-11 months then new zealand for a month, but not sure if il go to thailand as il be alone, but just thinking why not.

Yeah I was supposed to be going with a friend but she has let me down so now I'm stuck and need a travel buddy... I was thinking about travelling around India, Thailand, Australia and New Zeland but I'm pretty easy to be honest... Was you going to work or just save up enough money to just travel? xx
