My husband and I are planning a round the world trip, hoping to take in Thailand, Oz, New Zealand and the US.

We found the Lonly Planet guides were a great source of info, from where to stay and where to eat etc. Hopefully they should help

Good luck on your travels!!

Sounds like an awesome trip...just a tip on fiji - go to for heaps of info on fiji for travellers including how to stay in local villages - heaps of fun, very very cheap, beautiful destination, need i say more? Anyway, a lot of info on this website - my friends and their son went there a little while ago and had an awesome time, so check it out if you end up anywhere near the area...also, it is perfect for 1st timer backpackers, very easy, just have to decide where to go...!

Good luck on your travels, hope you have loads of fun
