Hi fellow travellers!!

It is early planning however I am sorting out a RTW trip from Nov 2004 onwards for a year. I plan to visit India and go on a tour and then after three months there I'll be in Thailand (around mid Feb) onward to Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, OZ, NZ and then parts of South America including Rio. I am an adventurous type of gal and whilst out there I plan to do some tours, see various temples, volcanoes, camping under the stars, soak up the culture and have the time of my life. I don't really want to just go out there to all the touristy bars and get drunk all the time (although I can't say I don't like my beer and the odd few parties) I get on with people both young and old, and those who have a sense of humour - no stressheads please So if you want to meet up and would like some company - please let me know. As I said this is all early days but there's no harm in early planning I say!!

Hi Ruth,

yeh I'm still looking :) I plan to travel for a year - spending most of my time in India and South America - about three months in each country!! In between those destinations I hope to do Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, OZ and NZ. I have found a route that does all these countries "One World Explorer" that is £1,525 all in (incl. all taxes and charges). Haven't booked it yet though as I find it hard deciding which route to do and what have you. Which countries would you like to visit the most? Hope to hear from you soon!!

hi Rach
sorry it's taken me so long to reply. The places you wanna go are basically the same as mine except i would like to go to France as well but i can do that at the end of the year. I hadn't originally planned to spend 3 mths in india but we could like meet up on the way or i could fit france in there. How long were you planning on going for? Also whats the one world expolorer site i've been trying to find it but can't

Hello, I am real tired today - have slept loads must be these wintery days that have arrived make me feel all sluggish! Ahem anyway yeh I am going to India probably around mid November - I think 3 months is good to explore everywhere in India - this tour is with dragoman - website is www.dragoman.com - looks as if there is lots of good tours there. Then a couple of months or so in Asia then OZ, NZ for a couple of months then I plan to see South America around June/July 05 until around September time :) About the flight - I think I will choose my route last after booking one or two tours etc. - It is so hard to make up my mind as to where to go. It is fun planning though!! The site is www.trailfinders.co.uk I think or there is another www.travelbag.co.uk - you can use an interactive map on that one it is really good. The 'One World Explorer' is the name of the ticket (I don't explain things too good) there is other good ticket deals for RTW one is 'Star Alliance' type of ticket which is good value - but should find out about it all on the websites I mentioned above. I am all still a bit unsure of the route. I reckon if you wanted to do France you should squeeze it in :) and meet in India with me somewhere or if all that fails - SE Asia would be good. Anyway I'm off to grab some grub!! Hope to speak to you soon!!
