Hi Lynsey,

I booked this trip yesterday! I'm also a solo traveller and really looking forward to it :)
Are you doing any trips before or afterwards?
I'm volunteering at the elephant nature park north of Chiang Mai for 1 week before flying to Bangkok.

It's my first gadventures trip so I'm not sure what to expect!

I'll be in Bangkok around midday on the 7th. I'm visiting some friends in Singapore after our trip and will be flying back to the UK end of October. So in total I'll be travelling for a month, I've never been on holiday for more than 2 weeks :)

Are you travelling anywhere else after the trip?

I love Scotland! I lived there for 6 months before moving to London for work.
I've travelled mainly in Europe with group tours from Belgium. 5 years ago I did venture a bit further and went to America twice, first time Florida (Disney world :) ) and the second time I did a month long tour around the west. I loved it!

How about you?

I've only ever been on family holidays so this is my first time abroad alone :\
I've travelled to Singapore alone but always stayed with family.

I was thinking of doing a couple of group trips when i'm in America but i'm not too sure, might just see who i meet or go sightseeing alone.


Where did you stay when you lived in Scotland? I live in Dundee :D

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all as excited as I am to get this trip started!!

This is also my first foray into travelling and I too am a solo traveller - really looking to meeting all of you!

I'm doing the big trip - Bangkok to Bali over 28 days. I'm flying from Newcastle on Oct 6th and arrive in Bangkok via Dubai (I'm flying with Emirates) at 1pm local time on Oct 7th.

Does anyone else arrive around this time? I'd love to have people to travel to the meeting point with.

I've packed and repacked what seems like a hundred times, do any of you have any helpful tips for essentials to bring?!

The countdown to finishing work starts now!

Laura :)

Cheers all,

I'm allready in Bankog and booked on the tour. Did some looking arround today (Temples...) and will be biking bankog tomorow (rain permitting). If anybody is in before the tour, am happy to join up. Like to have a look at the clubs tomorow evening and hte day after. If you got a lightweight sturdy umbrella, maybe bring it ;-) its to warm for a raincoat and to rainy to do without cover.
if you arive before the trip and want to join, best contact me at walk@wolke7.net, I will be online every evening (local time).
Will be staying singapoore 3 days after the tour to have a closer look there and than fly over to melbourne (trip is a little longer).
Looking forward to See you all
