Re: Random travelling around the world?

First of all, a big thanks for all the replies!

To fill you in, I'm 23, am selling up everything (flat, cars etc) to do what I want to do, travel.

The time I spend travelling could be years, at least I hope it will be.

I should of guessed that low cost flights would be confined to europe, it makes sense I've heard that around Asio in partular, trains are very cheap, and cover large parts of the continents, also sounds like a great way to see the world too as someone posted above.

A few more questions:

Where is a good place for round the world tickets? I'll try local agents etc, but maybe someone knows first hand? and typically, how long are they open for?

I think my starting point will be Australia, it's always appealed to me greatly, and very few people i've spoke to have anything negative to say about it.

On the side of communication, I will be taking a laptop (a very small one), I'm very technically minded (by profession) and for me it would really be something I couldnt be without!

I guess I should look at entry requirements for countries, I have a friend from the soviet, her boyfriend finds it quite painful getting a visa when they visit back home!

I'm practially itching to go, encouraged by the wine im drinking, but really, I hope I'll be embarking on the time of my life

I'd love to hear of people favourite places, maybe see some photos and things, anything really, I've been quite shocked at how little I've found on the net about peoples journeys, maybe im looking in the wrong places?

Again, MANY thanks for all the replies!

I will be sure to post here when I'm out there!
