I'm new to travellerspoint though certainly not new to giving and taking travel advice. I took a bit of a hiatus from travelling to finish my degree. (Stayed back home in Canada for almost a year and a half) and I have now ventured back onto the road.
Started with Europe, am now in India and am dying to get to Africa which I believe will probably be sometime around January. In India I'm totally lost, but not really concerned about it, although if there's anything that you think I can't miss, I would love to know about it.
Truly I'm seeking information regarding Africa, I'm looking at Sub-saharan and really interested in Madagascar. If anyone has info on getting to and from Madagascar from the mainland that would be great, as information seems to be hit-and-miss online regarding this... also any tips for sub-saharan African would be greatly appreciated.
Oh... I guess it's useful to know that I'm very interested in volunteering, learning new languages (can speak english, french, spanish, broken portuguese and pieces of german, indonesian and malagasy) and staying for a while in one location to become fully immersed in a given culture.
