Had this profile for a little while, but finally starting to use it! So excited to be apart of this travel minded community.
I am a College Professor teaching on the Island of Guam. I usually travel alone, but would love to connect with people looking to travel around Asia, Australia, New Zealand, or the Pacific region. If you ever travel to Guam and need a place to stay or a guide, please let me know.
Be blessed travelers.

I actually found it while trying to find a way to map out my travels. And don't worry. I will keep both eyes open and keep you updated. haha. Do you know of any good resources for traveling in South East Asia?
Cool, well very small world indeed then
For SEA info, you can't go past Travelfish . Lots of very well written, up-to-date info to be found there.
Hi Joey, and welcome to TP! Too funny re you knowing our parents. Say hi to them from me
Welcome here on TP! And hope you will have lots of fun travelling!
Like the story in the thread by the way.
Hope to make it to Guam once, maybe combining it with Palau or the Northern Marianas...
Does Guam have some real tropical hideaways as well, or is this more to find difficult over there?

Tropical hideaways do exist on the island, but they are not the easiest places to get to. They require hiking through some tall grass, known as sword grass, but when you get there it is totally worth it. I will try and post some photos of the tropical side of the island. If you like to dive then Micronesia is the place to come. You mentioned Palau. I haven't been there personally, but I keep hearing rave reviews about the location and the people there.
I would be careful about airline prices. It is extremely expensive to get here and expensive to travel between the islands. United is the only airline that flies out here and they make the prices pretty high. And you will have a hard time finding flights online to any of the islands, because they only fly certain days of the week. If you don't get the exact days right, they will tell you that there are no flights on that day and ask you to start your search again. They won't tell you what days they fly to what island.
Hope that helps.
