Hey, I'm 28 and from Zurich, Switzerland. I just finished uni and am working now to save up money to get out of here and see the world. I hope to leave next year and travel for at least a year.

I've been planning this for quite a while now so I have more or less a plan of where to travel. My plan is to start in Sri Lanka/India and travel east from there (Nepal - Bangladesh - Bhutan - Timor and Papua New Guinea and then travel around Australia, New Zealand and some of the surrounding islands. Then, if there is still time and money, I'd like to fly to LA travel around the western part of the US and then all the way down to Panama. Obviousely I'm gonna be on the road quite a bit. I'm not the staying-at-one-place-for-weeks kinda person. I'd like to see as much as I can, make new experiences, meet new people and new culters and exotic animals (maybe do some volunteering with Pandas in China) but also take a rest at the beach once in a while to relax.

However since I find it kinda sacry to do it on my own and it's hard to find people with the time and the money to join me, I'm looking for travel parters with the same interests and same way of travelling, who want to joint parts or all of my journey. As for the date, I'm more or less flexible (though I'd prefer early 2012), just waiting to save up my money, quit my job and leave! =)

PS: I haven't managed to upload a picture but I'll keep trying. =p

Here are some ideas:

I just finished my RTW trip, about 100 cities, averaged 3 days per city.

Traveling alone was scary to think about but I couldn't have imagined it any other way. Such freedom. And you can use couchsurfing to meet up with locals and other travelers. What I did was just put up an open request on CS and I would get invites all the time.

If I don't find a job I really like within a few months maybe I'll go do it again.
