morning everyone,

so this is only my second thread but seeing as i only joined yesterday i thought lets jump straight in :)
i'm planning on travelling mainly around Asia for a year from Jan 2016 and wondered if any of you lovely travellers were thinking about doing the same thing. i was hoping to maybe find some people who would either like to travel together or even just maybe meet up along the way. i mean a years a fricken long time to be travelling so the more people i meet along the way the better. i know that i'll meet many new faces along the way once i'm there, but as i'm a lone wolf on this trip i think it would be awesome to know a few people before i go (it'd probably make me less anxious too, first time traveller nerves) i've got a rough idea of the places i want to go but with any type of travel i'm sure it will all change once i get going.

If you are traveling solo, you will undoubtedly meet fellow travelers along the way. Hostels and guesthouses are great for meeting new people. You will be able to meet someone and travel together with them for a few days, then meet up with someone else travel with them, etc. If you don't plan too far in advance, you can keep you r plans flexible to accommodate traveling with people.

I've found that when traveling solo, you're normally only as alone as you want to be - meaning there are plenty of other solo travelers out there who are in the same situation as you.

Good luck on your travels!
