Marcia stacey What sort of month are you expecting to go to Thailand, Australia? Because I can alter the dates to august that would probably be a better time for me to go. And starting from Canada could be good for me as I have a friend that has gone on a 6 month visit to Canada. I'm open to suggestions and Mexico would be good to see to. Just at some point of the trip I'd like to head to Australia and Thailand. What do you think

chowitzer Australia and especially Thailand are high up on my list of places I'd like to see but as I'm planning to travel slowly from west to east those destinations will probably be nearer the end of my trip, and since I've never embarked on anything this large before I'm still not entirely sure how long that will take me. I can say that after I am in South America (I will have family business to attend to in Chile in December) I will be looking to cross the ocean toward Africa then north through Europe before staying for a short while in England (I've family there as well). I'll use England as sort of a "home-base" to plan my path eastward which will eventually culminate in getting to the East Indies and SE Asia and Oceania. Your thoughts?

Todd Hi Marcia, we're in Chiang Mai in Thailand now, highly recommend it. Super cheap, lots of longer-term travelers to catch up with, and a nice base to ride up North into the hills.

chowitzer This is exactly the sort of thing I've been planning. I was going to leave to travel the world in August of next year sometime, starting from my home in western Canada and heading eastward through to the Canadian Maritime, then down through the United States along the east coast, doing odd work, perhaps teaching (I'm going to get my TESOL cert.) and simply walking, taking cheap buses or even hitchhiking along the way. The rub is that I must be in South America by December of the same year, Chile to be precise, which is where my road would eventually take me via Mexico, Central America and the Andes region.
Cammy
Cammy Hey girl, your dates say 2012. Did you mean that or did you mean to say 2011? I need a travel partner and am on a budget as well. Romania, Hungary, Austria, and Switzerland are on my mind but am open. Holla if you are interested. I will be there August-September.
chowitzer
chowitzer Not a girl, but yeap I mean 2012. I have some lingering affairs to take care of and loose ends to tie before I go anywhere for any extended time. If you're still on the road when I eventually am I'm willing to travel with anyone who likes seeing new places as much as I do.
