    Hey there,

    While this may be my first post on TF I have been a regular visitor to the site and reader of forum discussions.

    I'm a 23 year old Irish male from Belfast and I'm heading to Bangkok on the 20th of Oct. 2009. I'm easy-going, like a drink (well, I am Irish), doing activities and generally having a good time. I haven't really got a plan for what I'm going to do (I'm just going to see how things go and go with the flow).

    I intend to go to the following countries: Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong (maybe China aswell) before heading into Australia.

    I've got a NIV with multiple entries for Thailand and a 1 year WHV for Oz so I am in no rush whatsoever. I'll only return home when I've either got bored (not likely) or run out of dough. :)

    If you're up for grabbing a beer, travelling or what not give me a shout and we'll see if something works out.

    Oh, sorry, one last thing. What am I looking to get out of this as its my first time travelling on my own? An insight into other cultures, to see the sights, learn some more Thai (been listening to Pimsleurs Thai audio tapes) and make new friends.

    Hit me up if you're interested.

    I'm a 23-year-old guy (and current Manhattan resident) planning a 3-month long solo excusrion to SE Asia. My plan roughly coincides with yours--arrive in Thailand (bangkok) on Nov. 3, then spend roughly a month in Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, respectively.

    I am actually applying for PhD programs in American History--specifically, social and cultural history as it relates to our involvement in Vietnam--so I'm interested in an "authentic" (problematic, I know) experience in the less-trammelled parts of Indochina.

    Since I left my corporate job late this summer, I plan on a very loose itinerary, with plenty of time for relaxing/exploration.

    Let me know if this sounds cool...

    If your interested let me know

    Have a good one

    That sounds good. I'll e-mail you when I get back to Ireland and have access to my personal e-mail address. I'm currently working away from home at the minute and leave my job on Friday so I'll give you a shout then.

    Have you got any idea where you're staying etc.? I've made no plans as of this moment in time and am wondering if you have heard of anywhere that's been reccommended?

    I'm Adam from Leeds, England. Travelling alone to SE Asia for the first time on 8th November (31 Days to go WHOO). I arrive into Bangkok on the 9th but i'm flying up to Luang Parabang straight away. So if your, or anyone else, is around it would be good to meet for a cheeky few drinks.

    At the moment I dont have anything planned at all. I arrive pretty late I think around 11 at night and then I think I'm gonna head right on over to Kaoh San road and find a place to stay. I think I'm only gonna be in Bangkok for a couple days before heading on to Cambodia but like I said I am really up for anything and am gonna be super flexible.
