Type Travel Partners Wanted

Name SE Asia and S America

Anybody is welcome to meet up with me at any point in this trip, be it a day a week, whatever! Im planning to begin my travel adventure around October 2010 time.

I plan to visit South East Asia and South America with Thailand and Peru my top places to visit, though I plan to visit several countries in between.

I’m not too keen on buying an ‘already organised’, ‘mapped out’, ‘around the world ticket’, I’m more set on going somewhere, staying as long as I like then moving on when I get bored – I mean, if I like somewhere, I might stay forever!!!

I have been to STA travel and sat for over an hour with a guy there (very helpful). The 'blueprint' of my travels is basically - i plan to do around 3 months 1st in SE Asia then 3 months S America. I am going to pay a little extra for a flexible around the world ticket that allows me to change flights (only have to pay the difference in flight cost) if i decide to stay longer as i dont want to be tied to a date at ANY point in my travels.

I plan to fly to Bangkok early-mid October, from there i will head North, cross into Laos then Vietnam, working my way down through into Cambodia, ending back in Bankok, then i will head south with Singapore my final destintation. From Singapore i will fly to Sau Paulo - from here there is no real route planned, all i know is i will head back to London from Rio. For this, my flights have been calculated at £1,350

Im looking at 6 months in total - but im VERY flexible, there really is NO TIME LIMIT as such.

Cicciolina Hey Kevin, I am thinking of a similar (but shorter) trip leaving approximately the same time. What's your departure date? Maybe we could meet up in Bangkok.

Antonio D'souza I've already visited half of the countries on your list but am not opposed to revisiting them. Your timeline and budget match my own vision so I'm thinking of joining you. But I would like to know where you're getting your flexible around-the-world ticket to see if I can get this too.
