Hello all.

My name's Scotty, i'm new to the site (obviously). I'm here just to get a few ideas of where i might want to travel. I've been on many 1 week or 2 week getaways. But i feel it's time i manned up, do what i actually want to do and explore our beautiful planet before it's to late. I've saved up some funds and continue to, hopefully getting myself out of the UK the middle or end of next year.

So any suggestions of places where i can get away, meet some people and enjoy some breath taking scenery will be more than appreciated. And anyone who is in my boat and is looking to get out of this god forsaken place. Then feel free to say hello and let me know what your plans might be. I look forward to all the help i know i'll get ;) and meeting some interesting people.

Happy travels.

Scotty x

Yo Scotty,

I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I feel like it's time to grow a pair and head off into the unknown. I've got a solo trip to Berlin for a couple of months chasing me down at the minute - I set off next week.

It's my first solo trip but, really, I'm doing this so it bulls me up for something bigger next year. I'm planning on leaving the UK in the final third of 2013, by which time my feet are gonna be on fire with itchiness.

I've been looking at the Trans-Siberian train through Russia and Mongolia, pulling in at China, then down to Thailand and south east Asia. Looks great. :)
