DaveJAFA

I'm a 28 year old tradesman from Australia. I recently quit my job without anything else in mind, other than travel and life experience. I'm not great with keeping a tight schedule so I'm hoping to meet travel partners who are good organisers. In return I will provide, good humour, witty banter and a lot of fun!

In 2012 I'm looking to travel to Europe; mainly Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Netherlands and maybe Greece.

I would also love to Travel to Central and South America. East to West United States. The Trans Mongolian Vodka Train. Egypt and Jordan would be amazing too.

I would also be up for living and working in the UK for 6 months plus or volunteering in countries that need it.

As you can see, I want to do it all. So don't be shy, let me know what your plans are and we'll go from there!

Dave

PS If you like to live closer to the edge I would love to meet up with someone who likes; skydiving, bungy jumping, white water rafting, atv's, scuba diving or anything else that gets the adrenaline pumping ;)

Suad

Suad Hey fellow backpackers.
So for the summer of 2012 i will do a Europe backpacking trip from June-July. My trip will start in berlin and I will be buying an inter-rail train card. I am now looking for super fun funky, spontaneous travel partners between 20-28. Prefer female company but male can join if I would be accompanied by at least one other female. I am a very spontaneous young woman (22) and want to have a lot of fun under my trip. I’m on a tight budget and will be staying on cheap accommodations, (maybe even couch surfing sometime) so you should not be a person that expects high class stays. Moreover, I am very responsible and want to travel with mature and responsible people.

Cities I will visit berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Portugal, Venice (Vienna, Budapest, Prague if the time is enough)
If you are serious feel free to contact me 

Johana
Johana I will do that too. Let me know your dates... I would love to go with you.
