Hi everyone

Reasonably well travelled 25 year old guy, qualify as a teacher in July so because will have worked verrrry hard feel like chilling on a beach or getting away for the school summer hols for 5-6 weeks.
Not too bothered where but was looking for ideas or suggestions, maybe Asia? South America?
Any ideas or people travelling this time of the year let me know
Andy

Hi Caroline, yes likely to be booking a flight to Bangkok as love Thailand. What are your plans there and where are you venturing to?

I honestly have no idea yet! It seems like everyone but me has their full trip planned out! All I know so far is that I plan on flying out to Bangkok start of August and come home on the 23rd August....definitely can't be missing the full moon party! I've had a look at a few of the tours which look good for settling in and meeting new people but from what other people have said it doesn't look like anyone will have a problem meeting people along the way. It's just a bit daunting going alone I suppose so I'm saving up but putting off planning it haha. Have you been to Thailand before?

Im thinking of going late july as in 25th/26th and also need to be back for bout 24th/25th august. both times i have been i missed full moon so need to do it! managed a black moon party on a different beach which was an experience but nowhere near as big as full moon! koh phanang or however u spell it was brilliant though!!
