Hi, im 21 and just about to graduate and finally ready to take a trip of a life time. Im looking to travel for a year from july/august 09 mainly around australia and new zealand, popping in at asia and figi along the way!

Nothing is booked yet. I'm still not sure where i want to go in asia. Too much choice so everything is flexiable.

It would be nice to have a travel companion as im going alone and this is the first time ever doing something like this.

Give me a message if anyone has similar plans. would be nice to hear from you.

Hi Holly,

These are exactly the places I want to go but I can't leave till the beginning of Sept 09, so if you're flexible with dates let me know

My plan was the following trip (but it is flexible!): London-Bangkok overland Singapore-Melbourne overland Sydney-Auckland-Fiji-LA-London but I don't feel confident of travelling to Bangkok on my own!

Let me know if this sounds interesting to you,

I'm exactly the same - slightly put off by doing the Thailand bit on my own! My thoughts are the same as both of yours Oz, NZ, Fuji then US. I can't leave till November though so maybe a little late for both of you?? x

hi holly!

i'm also graduating in july (can't wait!) and am heading off to see a bit of the world on a 5 month trip to asia and oz (im such a homebird when it comes to christmas!)

i'm heading out to china on the 21st july to do a month long tour, then im working my way down through vietnam, cambodia, laos, thailand and malaysia, just spending my last 3 weeks in australia.

i've done a little bit of travelling before so not completely new to it but still would be nice to travel in numbers rather than alone. if you're planning to head to any of these places at a similar time, let me know. would be nice to meet up along the way :)

good luck with your planning :)

hey well looking into a few things, think i might possibly be booking soon. get in there hopefully while flights are cheaper. I think im going to be going end of july but possibly to hong kong or thailand first before oz.

when will you be in either thailand or oz?

i'll be in thailand the end of october into november (will be there for the full moon party on the 2nd nov!) and i head to oz the end of november. are you just going to thailand in asia or popping to any other surrounding countries?

i'm not going to thailand now. Just kept it simple for myself. i might look into venturing into Thailand later on if money permits lol. Im going to HongKong instead just for a couple of nights. Then onto oz. Ill be in Sydney in November.

Hi Holly,

Im 22 from Manchester and i'm looking to book end of June because its soo much cheaper than July / August. I really want to go Thaliland but in the same position i'm scared to go there on my own first but then its one of the best places to go like full moon parites and stuff.

I want to go there Singapour, Cairnes, Sydney, Oz, Fiji or Hawai then somewhere like LA or San Fransico

You planned anything yet or anything i really want to get something booked soon x

hey Lucy127

I have kinda booked something now. Only just put a deposit down so far. I have been to thailand before and i would love to go back but i was a bit worried of going there on my own first aswell
I've decided to go to Hongkong, somewhere different first just for a couple of nights then go onto oz in august, but lol i dunno if thats even scarier haha i'm hoping ill be able to meet people in Hongkong to see the sights with.

As for singapore, i thought it might be kinda samey to hongkong so i just kinda chose between one of them and for what my mileage permits for my ticket i don't think i could add both in.

But as i say i've only put a deposit down so it can still be flexiable. Think i was spoilt for choice but i spose i couldn't do everything. lol.

oz, nz, and fiji are still a definate and i've added in La and New York to end with.

when you planning on flying to either singapore or thailand?
