Hi everyone!!

I'm travelling to Thailand between the dates shown above, I only have my first week planned and then from the 7th of July onwards I have nothing planned! The thought of travelling alone is slightly unnerving and as much as I do enjoy my own company sometimes, I think I might get a little bit lonely... (crazy)

Is anyone else out there at the same time? Maybe we can meet up and travel together for a while?

Charlotte :) xx

The 3th of July I'm heading to Thailand for the second time now. It's such an amazing country! I have no doubts whatsoever you'll find great people to travel with within 48 hours of arriving in BKK (at least if you're staying in hostel).
Well.. anyway, I always start alone on my travels and I've always managed to find great people to hang out with! You'll see, no worries!
Since I only have a month I was just thinking maybe I could start looking for a travel buddy already.. and here you are! so yeah.. maybe we could meet up..
What are you're plans the first week? Are you a typical backpacker, staying in hostels and stuff?
Cheers, Thomas from silly little Belgium :p

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been a bit vacant. Thanks for replying I shall reply one by one haha.

Ben: Thankyou! I hope so. I'm sure I will be fine, just would be nice to have some companionship at some point It's a shame you're not travelling at the same time!

Hina-go-go: It isn't long at all!!! Let me know what your plans are. :)

Thomas: Hi!! I'm actually going straight from BKK to Pattaya as I have a family friend there, but from the 7th of July I am TOTALLY free. I have a few plans to go to Lopburi then onto Chiang Mai and then from there to Pai and then back down to the South and do some islands :) What are your plans? And I was going to do a few hostels, but I'm not going to lie, the thought of sharing a room with 5 potential snorers unsettles me. I need sleep sometimes ;)

Jen: Hello! I do have my first week taken up, but from the 7th (like I said above) I am free and have a few ideas of where I'd like to go after that. Lopburi, Chiang Mai, Pai and then some islands. How about you?? xx

Hi Charlotte!
I see.. nice plans you have! I have no idea what I'm going to do.. everything is still wide open! Maybe some Islands, maybe some Cambodia and Vietnam.. maybe some National parks in the north... have no idea :p The 7th I'll still be in BKK.. maybe we could grab a drink.. we'll see how it goes! :)
And I see your point about the snoring people. but.. one thing.. EARPLUGS! :) The best invention ever (right after mayonnaise)! One of my most precious things while backpacking :p anyway I know.. ***hotels in Thailand have about the same price as a hostel in OZ.. sooo yeah.. why not :)
