"World Exploration" largerama's Profile

As I travel these pages will change, as I hope I will.

Dont be shy about asking me for advice on any place Ive been. I love to hear from other travellers and believe in sharing as much as possible.

No matter how you travel, I'm sure you can educate me about places you have been, things you have experienced and I will reciprocate.


Practice Runs Have Been Done

Yep, had a few kind of dry runs with a month in South Africa for summer 2003 and various shorter trips here and there. But now is the time for the big OFF!!

Saved up for ages and tried to hold back from planning too much (but that's half the fun isn't it!!), and set off round the world on Sept 9th 2004.

Let's see where the road takes me.

The First Half

9 months long and 13 countries. My, do I have an impressive passport now. Not only is it loaded with stamps but it's very dog eared and creased.

The route I travelled for this journey was North Eastern America, East and West Canada, down the West coast of America, Tahiti, Cook Islands, Fiji, North Island NZ, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, East Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam.

I have been asked so many for my favourite place but I cant answer that. I like different places for different reasons.

The Second Half

In September 05, I begin again.

The planned route is India, Japan, Hong Kong, China, South East Asia, West Australia, South Island NZ, South America.

Let's hope that dog eared passport lasts the journey!!
