So I finally finished school and got a job but its time to travel. Im planning on going solo, hoping to meet people on the way. It makes me a little nervous to do it solo considering I haven't started traveling yet. I was considering to start with Australia and New Zealand but thinking to do Thailand before heading over to Australia. Any thoughts? Tips on where to start or any must see's. Is it a good idea to go solo and is Thailand worth exploring before heading off to Australia. Help please!

Same here actually. Im planning for 2014.want to save up first therefore I haven't booked anything yet. Do you know where you want to spend most of your time in Thailand? Also, do you have a lot of experience traveling?

Have a rough idea were I would like to go Bangkok,Chiang Khong, also considering checking out Vietnam and Cambodia then moving on to Oz but this is just a rough idea will be doing more research on a route. I have been travling a few times before so have some experience. What's your plans/routes ? :)

I dont exactly have a set route yet. I was considering Vietnam but not sold yet. Start in Bangkok and thats all I got so far because i originally was only planning on going to Australia but now I think im going to start in Thailand. Im more into the beaches, diving etc.

hey lleana,

I work with alot of travellers and was stressing about travelling by myself,
i can say that all the solo travellers i have talked to said the scariest thing about it is when you finally land in the new country and not no anything
but once you get to the place where you are staying you meet alot of solo travellers and then that's when the FUN begins

I'm from New Zealand so any questions you might have I'd be happy to try and answer ;)
