Awesome! Yeah I'm going on the 21st. I am volunteering at some hearing clinics across Cambodia for the first half of January as I am starting audiology next year at uni :) China would be awesome! Always wanted to go there. Are you from Australia?

No I'm from the UK, assume you are from Aus?

Wow thats sounds awesome!! What a great way to get some experience before uni!

I'm hoping to go to Cambodia after this tour. I'm volunteering in the Chiang Mai elephant sanctuary straight after then I have a week to explore before I head down to Singapore, so hoping to go into Cambodia then.

I am sooo excited :D

Awesome, what part of the UK? My parents are from Scotland and I spend a bit of time over there. Cambodia is amazing, my favourite country I have traveled to. Working with elephants would also be an absolutely amazing experience they are such cool animals :)

Looking forward to seeing you on the 21st in Ho Chi Minh!

I'll be there too. :)

Doing only the Roam Vietnam, but starting the same day so I assume we'll be in the same group for 12 days. :)

Hi there :)

Yes it does say on our itinary after 12 days some may leave and some may join for the Laos section.

Where are you from? Are you traveling solo or with someone esle?

I dont think the Chu Chi tunnels are included in the tour but are advertised as an optional trip so I'm hoping some of you guys are up for visiting when we are in Ho Chi Minh at the start as they look really interesting.

I am so excited! I've got 4 weeks and 3 days until I am off for the start of my adventure I cant wait!

Jo :)

Sorry Lynsey I didnt see you had replied.

I'm from Norwich - kind of near London.. ish! I'm also half Scottish but minus any accent. I have family in Glasgow. Where are your parents from?

I arrive at about 1am from China into Ho Chi Minh so am planning to crash out at our joining hotel then go for a bit of an explore in the day before we meet at 6pm.

What time are you guys arriving? I doesnt feel real I just cant wait to get out there!

When I did the Roam Cambodia tour it finished up in Ho Chi Minh and usually the whole group does the tunnels. The leader asks who wants to come the day before and organises the transport and all that jazz. On my last tour, everyone did all the activities as a group as I think people really want to see as much as possible.

My dad is from Glasgow and my mum for Kilmarnoch :)

I am arriving on the 20th Jan by bus from Cambodia and staying the extra night in the starting hotel.

EXCITING :)

Hi again, a bit late reply.. :)

I'm from Finland and travelling solo too. I'm arriving in the morning of 21st, so I have only two days to explore the city before we start our journey. Those tunnels look pretty scary, not sure I want to go in but definitely would like to see them outside. :)

Only 10 days to go, WOHOO! :)
