Ok, I have made the decision to finish my 9-5. I have worked for seven years within design consultancy and decided there is more to life than this.... and after my 3 week oliday in Thailand booked my ticket and now need ideas and thoughts to share.

I am heading to KPN from Dec 18th....where I will say goodbye to my friends and family rather than a cold Heathrow airport. Then who knows I have no real tight plans I intend to travel through Thailand from the South Islands to the North then Cambodia, Laos. The usual suspects.

I'm pretty easy going and enjoy having loose plans I don't want to hook up with people who sleep with their lonely planet guide books and who are on a mission moving from place to place just to tick boxes I would prefere to meet with people who enjoy the moment. I want to experience the local culture and maybe do my TEFL on my way.

It woud be great to meet female travellers that are travelling on their own. I am a little nervous it's my first solo trip and it would be great to meet some fellow people in the same position.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Emily xx :-)

Just wanted to wish you luck and to say I know how you feel! I met 3 other girls on here back in 2006 to start my RTW trip and I had an amazing time. We travelled SE Asia (North Thailand, Loas, Vietnam, Cambodia, 6 Thai islands, malaysia & singapore) together and then i did the remaining 11 month trip alone.

You will meet so many people and be absolutely fine...just getting started is the scary part!

I am planning a 3 month trip in feb/march 09 to indonesia and the philippines so if you are going to head there, send me a message! I am currently also looking for people to travel with as i'm sure like you you have worried friends and family and being with someone else will put their mind at ease.

Happy advetures, take care
