Hi guys,
I really need your help, I am planning to take an around the world trip starting May 2006 for 6 months-1 year. I will be travelling by myself, I am a singlr female and will be 25 when I go.
Where do I start, I have no idea where to start my planning or how much I should look to have saved. Please any advice would help me out right now.
I know I want to go to South America, Africa, Australia, Europe and Asia, I know I can't afford to see every country but definetly want to touch on alot for as little money as I can.
I was thinking I would need US$20,000(including airfares), please let me know what you think!!

Have I said please enough yet?

You might want to look into buying a Round-the-World plane ticket. MOst of them truly aren't around-the-world, but I believe United offers a package that will let you zig zag around to your heart's content, as long as you are progressing one way (east or west) with each flight, with all the north-south movement you want.. These generally cost around $10,000 or so, but in the end may work out to be worth it. Good luck!
