PMaz11 I would like to get involved in volunteering but I am finding this takes a lot of planning: have you things in mind? I have some background in ecology (not applied recently). My travelling start date is less flexible (Oct'11 onwards), but maybe we can overlap somewhere on the way (see the trip I have set up).

travelinhappy I haven't had much luck finding travel partners either. I have most of my RTW panned. How are you traveling and what type of volunteering are you going to do?

Todd Hi travelinhappy, sometimes it's easy on RTW trips to find people for small sections. Or to meet up in particular cities. There are travel bloggers all over the world, so if you land in a city and want some company, try a quick search on Google for bloggers in the area and they're usually more than happy to catch up. We've met lots of them on the road in South America and India. Hope that helps.

Todd Sounds like an epic trip Annie. We'll be around some of those countries at the same time; so we should keep in touch. Currently in India, but heading to Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, etc., from late July. You'll love India if you've never been before.

annieehyett Probably around mid august/early September. I am pretty flexible. My plan was to try and find a companion first but it is turning out to be a lot harder than i would have guessed. Hopefully i will run into some free spirits while volunteering who may want to go forward with me.
