Name RTW Gap Year in Asia, NZ, Australia, South America

Before heading off to college, beginning a career, retiring then dying, I have decided to take a gap year and travel around South East Asia, New Zealand, Australia, and South America. With reluctant support from my parents, I am going to embark on an eye-opening, fun-filled, educational adventure. Plans are very raw right now so I am open to any suggestions. I hope to find a travel partner or group who is willing to fully immerse themselves into a foreign culture with an open mind and positive attitude. I'd prefer to travel with fellow Gap Year young adults (18-24) but I am also chill with anyone up for a grand journey. The trip would ideally be around 8-12 months.

Realistically, I'm hoping to begin the trip in Thailand and then branch off into the rest of S.E.A. After a couple months in Asia, I'd like to fly to New Zealand and Australia to spend about two months. Then I'd like to end in South America.

I have a really tight budget which I personally think makes for a greater experience abroad. (I am still working out the actual amount of moeny I will need) I truly want to explore new places, ideas, foods... We'd be staying in hostels most of the time and living out of light packed backpacks. Talking to locals to find the best beaches or nightlife and letting go of our "western lifestyles".

There are a few things that I really want to do that are a bit more expensive which I plan to budget for. Ideally, I would like to skydive, bungee jump, scuba dive, snorkel, ride elephants, and a few other excursions.

Let me know if you'd like to join me in this experience so we can begin planning!
