Hi Chloe

Yeah ive had a look at the places idf like to see and things id like to do and a little bit of research on how to get about but ive looked at tours and as much as they would take a bit of the nerves away knowing youll meet people the minute you arrive that are doing exactly the same trip you are .... theyre quite expensive considering your on a schedule so lose the freedom to stay longer in places etc.

my sister has been travelling loads and she has always said going on your own is the best way ... she literally meets ppl from the second she gets off the plane .... i always think i would be that person that went when no one else was there!!! thats the nerves im sure!!! haha

im pretty open to where i go i think just having a good odea would help but i like to stay open minded. alot of the time when you stay in the hostels they have things goin on like excursions and that.

so excited .... sorry ive ended up writin an essay!!! xx :)

I'm Tiffany, 24 from Chester (and no, it's not like I have the month of June off and am also looking to travel somewhere...Have travelled before and am interested in doing so again (but it would be rather dull on my own). Where are you guys interested in going? I am open to suggestions, interested in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, India (but June would be a very bad time to go, too hot!). Also, closer to home would love to go to Italy or Greece...

I've just quit my job and I'm going to work in Tenerife for a little while. Afterwards I'm open to suggestions, would be good to meet up with like minded travellers do a big world explore. Would like to see Europe, parts of Asia but not too keen on Thailand area and OZ. If anyone has similar plans, it would be nice to here from you.

I'm planning my first ever solo trip, and would be very interested in joining any of you in my travels. Since I'm an Indian female (living in NYC) I have loads of pressure from my family on doing a solo travel in order to convince them and for my own safety and budget I decided to go to places only where my friends live and where my friends- family or friends can put me up at there places.. Here is what I have so far... Because of various reasons I dont have the luxury of taking a very long vacation at best I am planning to do 4 1/2 months, hence calling this trip "Around the World Sampler" Planning to start April 15th from NYC (this could change a bit because I need to get visas for so many countries and have very little time doing so) -NZ (south island through Stray travel bus, until April 30th) Austalia ( Sydney, Kakadu National park, GReat Barrier Reef) until May 12th, Japan (May 12-19th), Korea (May 20-26), Singapore (May 27-29th) Indonesia (May 30- June 6th) Thailand and Laos (June 7th- 19th) China (june 20-30, beijing and Guilin), Bangalore, India ( entire July spending time with family, if you are happen to be there during this time I will be happy to meet you and show a bit of bangalore) UK (August 1st week) Turkey (Aug 2nd Week) Couple of other European countries rest of august.
Little bit about myself...I'm flexible, adventurous, LOVE outdoors and watching wild life, I'm a rock climber and desperately looking for a climbing buddy, I love food and eat a lot:) often things revolve around food:) I believe in exploring the local markets and streets rather than going into too many museums.. Please drop me a line, if we could just meet in any one of the above countries for even a brief period.
