Hi guys, I’m sasha
So my gap year starts from the summer of next year but i think i will need till around Jan/Feb 2013 to get the money together and then be off for at least six months…
basically Asia is the place in mind, especially Thailand but there is literally so many places in the world I want to go, I’m up for anywhere really!
the main issue for me is being a solo female, so for this reason i have been looking at tours, to be safer and a garantee that i will meet people and be able to spend my time with like-minded people throughout my trip. although i am not totally convinced about the tours, my idea of travelling is endind up in unexpected places rather than having a detailed itineray set out from the begin so i dont know if the tours are for me really -this is why i need friends to travel with!!!!
so if there is anyone out there looking to travel 2013 (i know its ages away but wanna get the ball rolling) feel free to get in touch with your plans so we could maybe think about travelling together or meeting up somewhere along the way… or even if you just have some advice about being a solo female traveller it would be a great help!!!!!
Just wanna get out there and see the world!!
You could do a tailor made tour, then you’re calling the shots and telling them where you want to go.
Footsteps in Asia has an option for this kind of thing. They are very reasonably priced too. They usually wholesale their tours to bigger companies like G Adventures and Exodus who mark them up and sell them on. However, they’re re-branding themselves and selling their tours at the same price as they wholesale them at.
Worth a look at least I reckon ..Good luck!
I’ll be sure to check that one out, thanks for the help!!!
I found Thailand really easy for a solo female. So many backpackers in Bangkok.
I’m also on a gap year next year, and was planning on going to SE Asia probably around early 2013 for a few months and would love to go with a group of people.
What plans did you have? I’d love to do maybe four months in Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, from Jan- April ish. I’m really up for going to a full moon party, doing a PADI course (although I’ve never scuba dived before) And heading off the beaten track a bit. But I’m happy to just turn up with a backpack and a guidebook and see what happens.
Im thinking about travelling at that time too and that was also my issue about being a solo female. This is my first time travelling and im up for anything and going anywhere, would feel alot safer and secure with a bunch of like-minded people too
2013 is the year I’ll be going too, havnt put allot of thought into it yet but would like to start planning something with a bunch of people
Gimme a shout, I’ll be up for anything !
I’m really glad there’s quite a few people interested :D
Maybe we could set up a facebook group some time closer to the date?? So we can find out what everyone wants to do
Thanks guys :D
