London to Bangkok 26th Sept

Hey people,

Im 28yrs old unbelievably easy-going lad from Scotland looking for a travel buddy (male or female) to travel around S/East Asia (Thailand 1 month, Laos and possibly Vietnam depending on time) - before going down to Singapore to do Australia.

Don't have any particular plans other than to just "wing" it when i get there.

Anyone else going the same time that is as nervous about travelling solo also?

Hey there you 2. I fly out and to bangkok on the 30th September and will be spending 5 weeks over there, I have to be in Koh Tao to Scuba dive on the 4th, after that I am free to travel around, I'm nudging 40, but you wouldn't belive it, still a teenager and free spirited, full of adventure, lets hope this trip is as memorable as the last one 5 years ago.

Mail me. Joss369@yahoo.com, Facebook, Jason Roach. I have a K-Swiss t-shirt on.

Hi all,

I'm a 27 yo Irish lad, arriving in Bangkok on the 27th of September.

I have around 4 months to travel around SE Asia before heading for NZ for a month.
I've a very loose route at the moment which I'm expecting will go out the window pretty quickly :)

Very interested in doing a PADI course also, but may leave that until later in the year.
Joss, are you doing a course while in Koh Tao?

Sammy, I was very very nervous about the whole thing up until last week. The excitement has finally taken over. If you fancy meeting for a pint in BKK, just drop me a message.

Barry.

Barry. Yes I am doing the padi diving course on Koh Tao, while looking around at all the different countries in the east, I found that this island is among the cheepest in the world, not to mention a great dive site, it is costing about £190 for the 3 and 1/2 day course, which enables you to dive up to 15 metre's.

I've literally just booked everything last minute, and i leave Heathrow at 10pm on Sunday and arrive in Bangkok 3pm on 27th.

Hey Sammy,

I couldn't find your pic on facebook.

You can get me by searching bdevenney (at) gmail.com or just fire me an email.

I'm the one riding an inflatable bull . . . :)

Safe flight!
