Name RTW at my own pace

My itinerary is not set in stone. I am leaving from the US and am extremely flexible on the route taken and how long I travel. I plan to connect with locals as I go. I would like to visit cancer centers in places I can locate them. It is my goal to inspire others as I go and leave happy vibes along the way.

4wsedr6ftyghi Do you have any idea where you will be around Jan - March of 2012? I will be travelling around the world at my own pace between those months, too.

PMaz11 Hi, I'm coming from the UK to the US at the start of a RTW trip probably in October, but have lots of similar interests in terms of countries I am interested in. (Although time is short my itinerary is definitely not fixed). What is the scope for overlap where our plans overlap?

travelinhappy Not sure where our plans will overlap. I don't know what your plans are. I leave Pennsylvania about the time you hit the states. Do you know where you will be heading first?

PMaz11 Possible overlap in South America? US plans at the moment: NY, CN, MA, VT as route to Canada, but need to investigate OH and IL where have contacts.

Jamie Starbuck Hey I'm currently travelling the US and heading south (eventually) through South America. I'm not limited in time and travel as cheaply as possible. I'm looking for a travel buddy for central and south america. When do you plan to cross the US/Mexico border?

travelinhappy Hi Jamie, what part of the states are you in now? I should be hitting the border by late fall. I am also looking to do some travel with a buddy. If you jump on my website you can get more info and find my contact info if you want to talk more.

Trey Taking a RTW trip has always been a dream of mine, so I’m seriously thinking about taking such an adventure while I’m still healthy enough to do so. But I don’t see how it would be possible to spend a year traveling for only $8000. Is this really possible? Last year I had to undergo treatment because a patch of melanoma had penetrated my skin, but thankfully there are no signs it spread. Would you be willing to tell us what type of cancer you had?

Todd Hi Trey, not sure if you've seen our recent blog post about cost of living around the world (http://globetrooper.com/notes/cost-of-living-thailand), but $8k is possible if you stay in the right places. However, flights can quickly eat into that. I doubt you could travel though Western Europe and Australia on only $8k for the year though. In Asia and South America you can spend $300/month or less on accommodation. So that would be less than $4k for the full year. So although $8k is possible, I think it would be tough.

travelinhappy Trey I am glad to hear that you are fine. My issues were with my cervix. You can learn more about what I am doing by visiting my website www.unlimited-smileage.com I will be doing a lot of camping and those types of things so yes I believe this can be done relatively inexpensively. I agree with Todd the biggest expense will be airfare and I am also considering other ways to cross the ocean.
