Dear All

I am 23yr old female from the East Mids (UK). I have finally handed in my notice at work and have decided to go travelling for a few months.

I would like to visit New Zealand and Australia, although I have not made any definite plans yet. I was hoping to go travelling with my friends but none of them can afford it at the moment. I am really nervous about travelling alone and wondered if there is anyone out there in the same situation and looking for a companion to travel with.

Hi Guys,
I'm 23 and live in the USA. I'm planning on traveling to New Zealand also (probably sometime in July or August) and am so nervous about traveling by myself. I've never left the states before, but really want to do this. All of my friends are too broke or busy and I would like to have someone to go with! My email is if anyone is interested.

Hey all!

I'm starting out in Aug to India first, Japan, then from Thailand overland to Singapore and looking forward sunning it on a beach in either Oz or NZ for xmas..

Would be cool to gather a crew together to toast the new year in!
