Travel Forums Introductions Hey! :)

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd introduce myself :) I'm Paul, 23 from North West England. I haven't been to many places yet but I plan to do as much travelling as possible over the coming years. I can honestly say that I have a massively adventurous spirit but unfortunately I never seem to be in a position to nurture it. No more! Everything I do from this moment on is going to be geared towards getting out of this little box I've been living in for far too long now; recently I've been crawling up the walls with boredom - I'd give anything to get out there and see something new :)

I'm actually thinking about doing some volunteering in 2009. It couldn't be for long unfortunately because both getting time off work and money will likely be a bit of an issue, but I figure even if I can only do it for a few weeks or a month at least I'd be getting out there and doing something worthwhile. Failing that it's a trip to Oz to scope out job opportunities etc - I'm hoping to move abroad as soon as possible. It's a bit of a pipe dream at the moment but if I can get my head around which direction I need to be heading in then I'll attack it with everything I have.

Erm.. not sure what else to say really. My favourite place thus far has to be South Africa. All of it! I love it so much, especially Cape Town. Amazing place!

Anyway I'm hoping to get to know a few of you because, being single and all I have to travel alone. It'd be nice if I could tag along with a few like minded people at some point.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! All the best for the new year

See you around the forum,

- Paul

Hey Paul,

Nice to have you here on Travellerspoint. :) Sounds like you're really geared up for doing some travelling in the new year! What kind of work do you do? There's certain professions that are really good for getting jobs, while others can be a lot tougher.

Thanks guys!

I'm working in I.T. at the moment, though I'm not sure what I want to be doing a few years down the line :) I.T. is good enough for now though.
