Name Round the World - Without flying!

Looking for like minded people, also on a budget, for all or part of this trip for company, hope to meet some amazing people along the way too.

The plan is to set off from the UK after Glastonbury 2014 and head East on the Trans Siberian, happy to head through China and towards India before heading south overland and sea to Australia, maybe settle there for a while to bring up the funds again before hopping across the Pacific to travel America, North and South (who knows, maybe even Antarctica - lets see when we get there). We can then head to Africa, see all its wonders and be back in Europe in time for tea!

This trip is very flexible, I'm open to any and every travel ideas, I would like to spend a decent amount of time on each continent, not just rush through it. The plan is to volunteer, work for room and board, and perhaps 1/2 way round (eg Australia) spend a good few months working.

I'm happy to couchsurf, camp, findacrew, WWOOF etc, I am an animal friendly vegan and would love to travel with like minded people.

It IS possible to travel the world over land and sea so lets give it a go!

Bex World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOFing) there are plenty of sites like this one where farms/hostels/and other projects look for volunteers to work for them in exchange for room and bord. Its a great way to live cheeply and get to know the area and other cultures. You can often stay at these places for weeks even months and they are all over the globe!

KayeYatta My plans are flexible, I'm toying with the idea of going to the World Cup finale this summer. After that I'm going to head to Europe for the Summer months and head to Asia around the end of September/ beginning of October.

Bex Hiya, thanks for your message. Its Funny you should say that about the World Cup just yesterday I was toying with the idea too, nothing fixed or planned yet though. Would love to spend alot of time getting to see S. America (and the rest of the world). Do you have any time commitments or are you up for taking as long as it takes?
