Hey people

RTW Ticket booked and nerves now kicking in.

I'm 26, from Manchester England. Decided to take a year out of work to travel the world, see some cool places and meet like minded interesting people.

Heading off on the 3rd October, first stop Nepal, for EBC trek and Chitwan Park for a month or so. Then a month touring India, particularly Dehli, Mumbai and Goa. Then its off to Thailand for Christmas and New Year before the rest of SE Asia and Oz.

I'm a first time travel and going solo, would be up for meeting anyone out there at the same time for drinks, fun and maybe a bit of travelling.

Anyway I think I'm pretty chilled out and always up for a laugh. If you think our paths may cross or if any of you have any words of wisdom for travel newbie then get in touch.

Hi Pete

I will be in Thailand in December early Jan ...looks like I'm doing the same journey as you but the other way around and in 6 months!

Would be great to hook up and have a beer at Xmas ...I'll keep your details and we can arrange to meet.

Keep your blog updated, be great to have some insight into India before I get there!

Safe travels,

There are two of us setting off to Russia (from Manchester) on Wednesday. We may well be in Thailand around that time. We'll be online checking this forum, so there's a chance we'll be able to meet up.

I've subscribed to this thread so I'll get all the replies sent to my email.

Good luck all.
