Hi guys, my name is Kamila and I'm 23 years old. I'm hoping to plan a trip starting in October next year. Duration of trip 4-5 months but this is flexible. None of my friends can afford to do the RTW trip so I'm looking for like minded people with similar interests to travel with. The places that I want to visit starting from UK are: Thailand, Australia, NZ, Fiji, Mexico, Peru,Chile, Brazil. In this trip I want to be able to not only to see the other cultures but I want to also do activities along the way such as overland tracks, scubadiving etc. as well as just chilling out. If anyone is interested send me a message. I'm interested in all opinions about this idea so feel free to let me know what you think or any advice is appreciated :)

Thanks

Kamila

Hi Kamila,

Sounds exciting! You could always encourage your friends to save up for their trip by hosting other travelers visiting your hometown to do fun activities with them on Arribaa.com. This could be anything - taking travelers to your favourite markets, going for scones and tea, going wandering in the woods or hopping between your favourite pubs. The things that you normally love to do and travelers looking for the real local deal really want to do! Take a look and let me know what you think, I'd love to see if your friends can save enough over the next year to join you on your fabulous trip!

Cheers,
Colette

P.S. If you're going to Thailand make sure to stop in Pai - they have some of the best blues and rock musicians!

I am in the same position as you. I would love to do a RTW trip, and I would be looking at going in 2014, but I know my friends would never be able to afford to go and they are quite flaky when it comes to making plans anyway.

Hi Kamila, Your idea sounds great!
I am thinking on starting my RTW trip in Sep-Oct'13 and interested in going to SE Asia, Australia, Africa and SouthAmerica. I am from Mexico and live in Panama so I will very much finish the journey there so, more than happy to help with advice if you need some. Would like a lot to know what route you have thought of already in case you still looking for travel companions.
see you around!

Cheers,
Paco
