Hi there,

I'm currently saving to travel in Jan (end of Dec if possible to be away for NYE) to India, and either fly into Delhi or Goa.

I am really keen to book flights but haven't yet done so as I have expected a friend to get involved, but as yet none of my friends are free for the 2 months or so that I plan to spend away, so I am wondering whether anyone else is travelling around India during this time?

I'm a 22 year old recent graduate and this will be part of my so called "gap year"!

I have no itinerary as yet and am open to suggestions. If no one is travelling at the same time, I would love to hear from anyone who has already travelled around India alone or who could tell me how easy it is to meet people. I've travelled around South America and Central America alone so if i hear that it's safe then I won't hesitate to travel alone again but my preference would be to have some company.

So yeah, I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi I've sent you a message on the thread i was writing on - the one about travelling to Goa but have just found this message of yours that has a little bit more info about yourself so thought i'd give you a bit more info about me!

I'm 25, female and a paediatric speech and language therapist. I'm originally from yorkshire, spent 3 years working in essex then went travelling for 6 months. At the mo I'm working as a temp at a special school in Surrey.

As soon as I got back from my 6 month trip I decided I wanted to go away again and India sounds amazing! unfortunalty none of my friends are able to come with me and i don't feel happy going to india alone - I travelled Oz, New Zealand and Fiji alone but India's a bit different I think!

have a read of my other message and I hope to hear from you again!

Hi Laura and H,

I'm a 29yr old from Singapore, currently undergoing my training as a teacher and in the midst of making plans for the upcoming 2weeks semester break.

I visited India in March for about a week and had an absolutely amazing time. I met up with a friend there who was doing an exchange programme in Delhi. We went to Agra, Jaisalmer (absolutely divine place!) and Jodhpur, and of course I travelled a little bit around Delhi alone as my friend had classes.

I am keen on a repeat visit to India, this time perhaps visiting Goa and Mumbai. If you ladies are planning to go there anytime between 23rd Dec and 7th Jan, do count me in.

Hoping to hear from either of you.

Hi all, i will be arriving in delhi on the 2nd of january, sorry this is last minute. Last year i went to goa for a short holiday but i will be spending three months in india this time. i am 19 yr old male from nottingham, england. i will be meeting up with some family in delhi for the first time as i am part indian myself. From delhi i plan on going to rajasthan (the desert) making my way down to goa and i am flying from goa to thailand on 1st of april. meeting other travellers in india is very easy and i suggest to you H that you should fly to goa first, that will be where you meet fellow travellers, and make your way into the real india from there!!

All the best
and merry christmas to all x
