    Hey all!

    I'll be landing in Bangkok 4th January, my birthday, and intend to go to Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

    No set itinerary I'm just gonna choose somewhere I like the look of from a travel guide or recommendation and make my way there with no set time scale.
    Hopefully meeting some great people and having awesome adventures along the way!

    If this sounds like something you'd like to get involved with, please get in touch :)

    Big love, Aaron.

    Hey Aaron,

    I'm landing in Indonesia on Nov 14 and will be traveling thereon through all these countries. I plan on landing in Laos in January and backpack through there, following with a bike ride through Vietnam and Cambodia. I'd love to stay in touch/meet up. Let me know if interested!

    Hi Aaron/Nitya,

    Honestly, you will meet lots and lots of people when you are there. You really don't need to panic and arrange to meet up with strangers via the net! Relax and enjoy yourselves.

    Tennouji - Nobody is panicing! and strangers on the net or strangers while traveling. Can't do any harm to have people to meet up with in advance surely? :-P

    Ill be already 1 month into a 6 month backpacking trip by that time! I land in Thailand (BKK) from Amsterdam on Nov. 28th and plan to stay in Thailand for the full 30 days (dec. 28). After that I'll be on the move into Laos, Cambodia, then back into Thailand to do the south then onto Indonesia!

    Like the last poster said, it can't hurt to have some pals to meet up with along the way!

    If the OP or anyone else is up to meet up in one of those countries then the first round is on me!
