Just wondering if there's a forum here on trip advisor that specifically deals with people going backpacking for a year/round the world flights etc. If so, I appologise for writing here but I'm really longing for some advice. Here's my route (open to all suggestions,cricitisms!! )
I start in
Basically planning to travel SA for 6 months, then New Zealand for 3 months, then the remaning three months in Australia, Bangkok (ideally about 4 weeks in Thailand area), perhaps Delhi in India for a week and then back to Ireland.
I've done plenty of homework on where I'd like to go where to avoid, but the more I read the deeper and deeper I go, and I've now realised I've read alot of the information months previously when researching.
I'd love some advice on anyone who has done a similar trip!!
I've about 15,000 euros or 20000 dollars. I'll be wanting to stay in hostels (highly rated ones as usual). I'm also keen to possibly visit: Galapagos Island (I know the expense involved), Fiji, Cuba, or India as all very optional stops along the route.
I'm hoping to leave in 6 weeks.
Any advice/help??? I'd appreciate please. thank you
