1/8/12 UPDATE: My trip got delayed to July, but still on track. I now have a better idea of what the trip may entail and what it may look like, but I'm still flexible with locations and timing. I'm glad I joined this site and have already connected with some of great people here. If anyone else is interested let me know.
---
I'm 35, live in California and have been working too much for too long to build a career, a name for myself and to secure my future, only to realize that I had forgotten to live my life today. I'm ready for the experience of a lifetime. I don't yet have any specific plans and haven't done a lot of research, but I'm hoping to find someone with similar interests that wants to plan this with me. I rather not do this on my own as the best memories are those you can share with someone for years. I'm very flexible and time and money are not an issue (to a certain degree). I welcome all ideas, tips and advice as I've never attempted anything remotely similar. I'd love to find someone to go with from start to finish, but I'm also interested in meeting other world travelers for legs of the trip. Let me know what you guys think.

Juan Herrada Hey Damian! How are your travel plans coming along? We were also looking to escape the city rat race and do a cool trip through some relatively untouched countries, while checking out some charities and community projects along the way. So we'll be going from Peru to Guyana, through Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela in August. You can check out the trip here - http://globetrooper.com/the-inca-rally-2012 What do you think? Will you be around that part of the world around that time? It would be cool if we could coincide!

Angel Like I like your introductory write up very much, I feel the same and want to start travelling to some good places within India. I'm around 30, based at New Delhi (India), educated and working in a full time job. Want to take some days off and travel. Anytime post Oct 30 (next week) is fine with me. Are you guys in India by any chance?

Damian Hi! I haven't started my trip yet. I'm thinking I'll start next year between March and June. I may do South America and Oceania first so it will be a few month before I get to India. Let's keep in touch. I'll send you a message with my info.

Damian Hey, utrippin, I just left you a note on your trip. I'm starting a little later than you, but we should partner on parts of the trip if our itineraries allow. I'm very flexible.

egypttravel Egypt Travel as a huge distinguished foundation is not introducing itself here as a new tourist establishment or even evaluate its tourist activities, on the contrary, this great firm is matured enough, simply because it has played an outstanding part in the development, improvement and implementation of tourist business throughout Egypt as a unique destination on the map of the International tourist markets.

Fenners
Fenners Hi Damian. How are the plans coming along? I'm planning to travel in July/August and very interested in where you are at with your plans. Like you, I've never attempted anything like this before and I can't wait to get going.

Damian Hi Fenners, I'm slowly getting my plans in place. I finished doing a lot of research about locations, timing, weather, financial and political of all the areas I want to go. I also plan to start mid year. Thinking of heading into Central And South America first and then west towards Australia, but may go straight to Aus and leave America for last. What are your plans so far?

Fenners
Fenners My trip has been brought forward to June and I'm going to go to Thailand, Singapore, Australia, NZ and Fiji. I still have a lot of planning to do, although it really feels as though things are coming together nicely. My initial list of countries/places to go was horrendously long and I decided that I'd rather visit less countries and really get to see them than rush to fit everything in. All being well, I'll cover America next year. Keep in touch and if we're in Aus at the same time (I'll be there in time for Christmas) let me know and we can hook up.

Damian Hi Stewart. I think August in South American is a little early for me. I'm hoping to start sometime in July in Central America. It may be more likely September for me at the earliest.
