Guys,

I'm 32 now and saving up for my epic journey.

I will be 33 when I finally set off, but is there anyone else out there who know's what I'm feeling, thinking and going through right now?

Is there jobs out there for us, are there others like us out there?

Any thoughts, insights and learnings will be gobbled up like a turkey..

Cheers,

Kev

Where are you off too Kev? I set off travelling on my own, so yes I know what you're going through! It turned out to be the best thing I'd ever done, and I still can't get the travel bug out of my system. I'm sure wherever you go you'll have a blast too! There are loads of solo travellers so you shouldn't have an issue meeting other like-minded travellers if you want to.
Hope to see you around the forums. :)

In a similar situation aswell, i'm 30 next year, so going too take a career break hopefully, thinking of doing a rtw flight through sta travel (jumbo jetsetter) and basing my trip around it, the plan is 4-6 months and setting off oct/nov next year

I too am in th same boat. I am 36 and have been planning a 3 week trip throuhout Eastern Europe in May 2012. I just wish I could take a year to travel the world. I guess I will have to do it in segments.
