Lauren Hey Jaxon, great trip! Love your attitude. Todd and I (co-founders of Globetrooper) have been travelling since June 2010. We're in Berlin for the next couple of months and plan to be back in Sydney/Canberra, Australia in March next year. So let us know if you decide to check out the east coast, it would be great to meet up.

Jaxon Hi Lauren, I am actually from Sydney, moved to Perth a few months ago for a bit of a sea change. As nice as the place is, Perth isn't somewhere I can stay for too long because time goes backwards here if you know what I mean! No doubt we will cross paths at some stage in the future. Great website by the way, love it!

Lauren Thanks. Maybe you should consider Chiang Mai in Thailand? There are many travel bloggers always coming in and out of there. I bet that's the real hub spot compared to anywhere else in the world. Otherwise Europe, as it's so easy to hop across the border to meet up or go to a conference.

Jaxon That's not a bad idea actually. I was in CM for the Thai New Years water festival back in 2008 and had an amazing time. I'll very likely find myself there at some stage in the next 12 months.

Todd Hi Jodi. We're coming to India after the new year and travelling around the entire country on this trip http://globetrooper.com/the-great-circular-indian-railway-challenge-2011. We may come early to live and may stay longer too. Anyway, check out that trip; there's a charitable aspect and lots of people coming.

Jodi I saw that! I want to come soooo bad! My Visa expires in March, though. I'll have to look into extending once I'm in the country. If it all works out, count me in!!!

Todd
Todd Hi all, I'm really eager to climb Ama Dablam sometime in the next three years (it's even at the top of my bucket list - http://globetrooper.com/trooper/todd). So I'm looking for anyone interested in developing their mountaineering skills. I'm not sure of the best path, but maybe a 10-day technical course in Alaska, then Aconcagua in Argentina, then Mont Blanc in France, and then finally Ama Dablam. Anyone interested?

comehikewithmike
comehikewithmike I recommend the courses at AMS. It's a stunning environment to 'learn the ropes' - excuse the pun. Here's a link to the 12-day technical course. http://www.climbalaska.org/mtc-12day.html

Vanessa Todd when are you thinking of doing the technical course in Alaska? Depending on timelne might be able to join!

Todd
Todd There are a few options for this: Alaska, France, Colorado, BC (Canada), NZ, etc. The Alaskan Mountaineering School has quite a reputation (and plenty of training ground). France may be the second best option combining the mountaineering course with a summit of Mont Blanc.
