Damian Hi Lisa, this is great. Let's connect. My trip is now delayed a few months because of some health issues. I need Spine Surgery, but hope to recover by July.

Lauren Hey Damian, wow that's a lotta countries for 12 months! Will you be doing the trip on a budget (i.e. backpacking, hostels, couchsurfing) or more luxurious? And are you wanting to plan it all out before you jet off or just have a general plan and be able to stay longer/shorter in places when get there? I'm not sure where I'll be in the world, probably Australia, Chile or Canada in Mar'12, it would be great to meet up for a beer/coffee. What's your rough plan? Which continent first? Cheers

Todd We got "stuck" in India for 5 months straight :) So yeah, lots of countries. But I'm sure it would be a blast too. Highly recommend India, Egypt and Peru from that list. Australia is pretty expensive, but a good wind-down from the culture shock of Asia and elsewhere.

Damian Yea, I know I won't make it to all those countries in one year. That's my dream list. I don't want to rush, so even if I get to half the list I'll be happy. Todd, when you say 'stuck,' do you mean not by choice? Ouch. I'd like to hear that story.
Lauren, I want to do a little bit of everything. My plan is to stay in some nice hotels in key destination. Backpack, coach surf and hosteling for legs of the trip, get a car and road trip for other parts of the trip. I don't have anything planned yet, but I don't want to have a set itinerary. I'll figure it out as I go. Not sure yet if I want to start in South America or Australia. I want to leave Europe for last.

Todd Hey Damian, no, I meant stuck as in we loved it so much that we didn't leave until our visas expired. There was adventure around every corner, as long as you keep away from the tourist hotspots. It's very easy to get off the tourist path in India. We only ran into too many tourists once we hit Goa.

Damian
Damian Ok, that sounds much better now. Yea, I want to do a little of both. Some key tourist traps, but mostly out and about mingling with the locals and being exposed to the culture. I just started planning and have a million questions. Maybe I can run some by you and Lauren once I can get them all compiled. You guys seem to have a lot of experience in this.

Lauren Give us a call whenever you like, my skype name is globetrooperlauren. My first piece of advice if you don't already have it, is get skype :) And be careful of Australia. It's big and expensive = budget blown for a lot of ppl.

Damian Matthew, you are absolutely right. My idea is to do the US later on in life. On a bike or RV. I know, complete opposites. I think it will depend on my age, haha.

Damian Hi BeFree, I think we coordinate some parts of our trip. I plan to start going west from California. Fiji, Austrailia, etc..and then move to SE Asia. I haven't yet plan the complete itenirari, but working on it. Like you, I'm leaving a lot to chance and play it by ear as I go. Send me a Private Message if you want to try to coordinate something.

Damian Hi! When are you planning to start? I will start in central and south America moving east then through French Polynesia, and Australia so it be be a little while before I get to SE Asia. I don't have all the details, but I know I want to visit Thailand, Vietnam, and Singapore. Then move towards China and Japan.

Ludmila
Ludmila Hi, tentatively in August next year. I plan to start from Central Asia (Tadjikistan or Uzbekistan) moving eastwards covering almost every country and fly to South America from Hong Kong or smth. Thailand, Vientnam are on the list as well. I though plan to skip Australia and Polinesia due to visa implications.

Damian What kind of visa implications? Trying to figure out if there's something I should know.

nativeguy
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.

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
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.
