Although my first interested listed says 'Travel' I have done very little of it. I have visited Tsilivi in Zakynthos and Ibiza in Spain, but I dont count these fully as 'travelling' as I made no effort to get out there and learn more about the culture of these places.
I want to start 2012 with a plan of attack to see more of the world.
In 2013 I want to start backpacking. I am by no means experienced in this and have no idea where to start (I guess the decision was the beginning.) And by backpacking I mean budget travel round the world. And by round the world I mean certain parts of the world, not the whole world. Taking baby steps :)
Im struggling to decide where to go, I would love to see South east Asia, some of the south pacific islands and India. As i said..baby steps
If anybody out there has any advice on where to start, how much money to take, how long to spend in each country, city, town, any reccommendations for sightseeing etc please give me a message.
Im also keen to know how im going to tie all of these places together as regards to flights, trains, buses (getting from one place to another!) Id also like to know about potential dangers as regards infections, and dangerous animals/insects.
Im brand new to this so and advice will be greatly appreciated!!
