Unhappy

Hi Folks,

My first post here

I have been reading the various topics in this forum with interest over the last few days.
Great advice to be had here for sure !

However, I am beginning to wondering if I am the only 31 year old guy (although I look younger :D ) heading to Oz for a year/using this forum ?

Your age means nothing here my friend, a budget trav'la is a budget trav'la at any age!!! We are here to help and to be helped!!! You can be infected with the travel bug at 15 or 50, it is something that ca be avoided, you age is no protection!!!

Our resident travel god is WorldWideMike, and I think he is in his 30's, so do not worry about a thing!!! Sit back and enjoy the ride my friend!!! Post away!!!

Women always dissing us younger guys, going for their father figures. Oh well.. I can wait til I am 40 to marry my 20 year old sweet heart. That works for me, cause I like younger women. :D

Thanks, CD. I feel like I'm in my 30s, but I'm 40. No biggie, though, I feel young, act young, think young. It's all a state of mind.

Besides, when you're going to live forever like me, 40 IS young...

Oh, and thanks for the Travel God thing...yeesh. There's lots of people on this forum who've done tons of things I haven't. Look at Atchoum...she's 38 and taking a year off from her career to do a round the world. Last I heard, she was in Laos!

Welcome IrishDude...you're in good company...
