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.

nativeguy Hey Bro, I'm totally into this idea of yours. I feel the same way. I think if you wouldn't mind having me along I'd like to go all the way with you (no homo) man. I'm down for the long run. I really need this in my life. I need the memories. So, Hit me up with any questions. One thing though. My budget for a trip like this would be less than ten grand. I don't know if that would be a problem.

Bryan hey I recently found a web page you might like its oneworld.com you can pick flights that take you around the world choosing up to 16 stops. Im heading to Austeralia for a year to work and travel. We should meet up for a beer if you get there. Also for cheep flights around Europe check out easyjet.com and ryanair.com or better get a euro-rail pass be fore you leave home.

Damian Hi Bryan, thanks for the tips. I was aware of oneworld, but not the other two. I'm debating on whether to get the europass or buy a car somewhere in Europe and sell it at the end of the trip. Send me a message with your info when you have a chance. It'd be great to meet up.

Ian [EagerExistence] damo, you only need skyscanner.net, it hooks into many airlines like easyjet & ryanair. be warned though, budget airlines charge for check-in, so try and carry-on.

Damian Brazil's economy is doing pretty well, it may be good to try there. I want to stay in Brazil for about a month and travel through the coast and also visit the Amazon jungle. When are you planning on starting your trip?

JeremyH I am a photographer and am looking for some great places to photograph. I came to this site looking for something similar to what you are doing. I need a break from my real profession in the medical field. I am 34 with little to no experience traveling the world, which is why I need to travel with a group. However I have a lot of experience with outdoor adventures. Mountain climbing, rafting, hiking, camping, ect. I would be interested in learning more about your plans.

Damian Hi Jeremy, photography is one of interest as well. And outdoor adventure is a passion. I just started indoor rock climbing. I'm far from ready to do it in the real world though. I skydive and scuba dive and one of my desires is to do it around the world as I travel. I'll send you my personal info next.

tmouzon@alum.emory.edu Hey Damien, I'm looking at a similar route starting in Peru ending in Europe (check out my trip). However, I don't plan on leaving until the end of the summer possibly late fall.

Damian Hi tmouzon, we divinely have some similarities on our interest and locations. I'll message you with my info so we can stay in touch. I'd like to start during the 1st quarter, but still have a bunch of things to do so it may slip a while.
