Hi,

I'm hoping to go travelling in 2014 by myself which i'm a little nervous about. I've been thinking of going Thailand, Bali, Fiji and south america (but this may change). As this is the first time i'll be travelling alone, i'd love some advice, tips or just any general info u guys may have, or even better if you're also doing a similar trip around this time (as i'd love to meet people prior to the trip or when i'm out there).

Thanks
Jess

Jess check this site out for information.

http://www.travelindependent.info/countries.htm

I start with a list of countries and cities/towns break this down into days and add in the cost per day, if you use a spreadsheet this will do the totaling for you. Don't forget to add in the days traveling.
Cost out the flights use a travel agent to get some idea, and any long coach or train journies you think you'll make.
Also consider climate, Visas, inoculations (take the advice of a healthcare professional) and the costs.
Find a good current account that doesn't charge a fortune for taking your money out.
Don't use Internet cafes for transferring funds.
That should give you a start.
Jean

Hello,

I am also looking at travelling in 2014 (need time to save money!) . It will also be the first time i'll be travelling alone, as my friends either don't have the money and some have already been. I was thinking of starting off in asia but heading to north america and travelling across it as it take's my fancy more. I know asia is cheap and america is expensive but I don't have a clue where to start really and am kind of scared of the concept of being on my own.

i will be Bali from Jan. 18th to March 1st.
most of the times i will be in Ubud
i will be free after 5pm
i would like to explore more and deep about Bali
maybe book a hotel with others
i have already interested in some famous hotels
but i can only afford the cheapest of this hotels i suppose
willing to make friends and be foodies together enjoy foods here

I'd like to find someone who is interested in going to Jimbaran to see the sunset and eat BBQ together in Jan. 18th
it's better if u leave Ubud with me and come back Ubud with me in Jan. 18th
