I'm a single female looking to do a RTW trip next January. I'm going to spend 2013 saving like crazy and I hope to be on a plane by the new year. I'm looking at starting off my trip in South America, by seeing Venezuela, Brazil and Argentina (in no particular order). I dont want to have a tight schedule, so I'm open to visiting other countries as well. From there, I'll be moving on to South Africa, and perhaps Kenya to do some volunteering for a couple of months. Then I'll be going to Australia for a month or so. From there, I'll be going to Bali, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos (also in no particular order). I figure SE asia should take about 3 months, so that I can see enough of the local culture. From there I'll be headed to India, where I'll spend 2-3 weeks before I head to Europe: Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Greece, Prague, The Netherlands, England, Ireland and finally Iceland.
I know this sounds very ambitious, and I'm going to be on a tight budget, so if I dont see every country, then I dont. I'd rather see more of less countries than less of more countries.
So what i'm looking for is a travel buddy (or 5). I will do the trip alone, but I think it would be more enjoyable if there were a small group, or at least a pair.
Is anyone interested, or already planning a similar trip? Maybe we can work something out?
