Stace
Stace Hey guys, I am also going to travel around South America (and Mexico) starting in late December for at least a couple of months. Would be great to find a travel buddy for some if not most of the trip, I really have no firm plans as of yet in terms of destinations and dates. Liking the sounds of your itenerary... What sort of trip / experience are you looking for?
Todd
Todd Hi Stace, we're currently in Peru and will probably head to Argentina in a month or so. (I still can't get over how cheap it is here.) We'll be here until late January, so let me know if you'll be around then.

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.

Tyro
Tyro Hey, I'd love to go visit the middle east. Lebanon & Jordan towards the top of my list! 10-12 days sounds about right for me as well. Were you planning a budget(ish) trip or ? Anyway - I'm flexible with time as well although End of september would be ideal for me. Let me know if you want to look into it a bit more....thx!
orenishi
orenishi hi tyro..yeah lebanon, jordan, syria have been sitting at the top of my list for around 5 years too! i'm not sure about the budget, possibly budget to mid range. i dont think i could do end of september because i'm on holiday at the moment, and will need to be back in england in sep/oct. i will have a better idea regarding exact dates in about a month when i'm going to get serious and start looking at tickets. whereabouts are you based? if you're in england then maybe we could meet up to discuss it. anyway i'll keep you posted on what dates i can do.

Tyro
Tyro hey again! Sounds good.. I'm in London and happy to meet up to discuss more. Whereabouts are you based? BTW i was in a pretty similar situation with having to wait for a new jobs' start date to be confirmed before travelling anywhere! I've ended up deferring it till March next yr though so am more flexible with dates etc now :)

Tyro Apologies for the delay! that sounds good - Will be easier to attempt to plan atleast once you're back. Is there anyway to send a personal message through globetrooper so I can give you some contact details?

orenishi
orenishi i don't think there is a pm system, i looked everywhere before. i have a junk email which i think i still remember the password for- theorenishi@yahoo.com. if you mail me at that, then i'll mail you back from my proper address.

Todd Hi Kate, a bit of a coincidence... someone else has posted a trip with exactly the same name and the same picture, but going at a different time. Maybe it's worth sharing ideas on itineraries. The other trip is here: http://globetrooper.com/cairo-to-istanbul-2010
