Hey Marc, I have the perfect example. I am married, travelling through SE Asia with a male friend of mine and yes, we are sharing the rooms. No hanky panky, no monkey business, it is strictly off limits.

The funny thing is that here in Asia, it doesnt look all that good...a married woman, a single guy sharing a room. We already had a couple of situations where we were looked at as if we were from another planet when we said we werent married or were dating. Now, we refrain from any further comment.

Yeah I know. Many times,I have slept in the same room or even same bed with a female; that has someone at home. Like you, I dont see anything wrong with it; as long as you respect the person's boundry. Although in some cases, the boyfriend or husband may not see things your way. That can cause problems on both ends. A couple times, I was confronted by insecured boyfriends. It can get kinda hairy. To avoid that potential problem, I handle everything on a case by case basis. Everyone is different.

Looks like I missed a lot on this thread! K, I have an idea! Why not for the first night, we go somewhere that we can talk and get to know each other in the real life sense and just chill. The other nights we can move on to the dance clubs to get our groove on. Sound cool?

I think the overflow will be staying with Katy... Just all rumor though, so far... ;)

LOL, I go away for one week and the gossip already starts ;) Actually, I live in the suburbs, so staying with me would be kinda tough on the traveller.

Cheers,
Katie ;)

Personally, I think that's a grand idea. People are going to want to get acquainted and talk with each other. The noisier and more congested the meeting place, the more yelling that will be done to be heard over the music and/or crowd. Since each of us is excited about meeting everyone else, keeping it simple would seem to be the best approach.

As the time draws closer, we should be able to get a better idea of everyone's travel plans and when they will be arriving. I don't think it would be fair to plan that gathering for (hypothetically) Thursday, if most of the participants don't come in until Friday. It's something that will have to be taken into consideration down the road. But, I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.
