To help you, please read these guidelines first before submitting a question:

  • Read the FAQ first

  • Search this forum first BEFORE you post a question. Your questions might have been answered before :-)

  • If you already know when you're leaving, please provide how long you're going to travel, which months and year.


    - I want to make sure that I don't send you off to the worst monsoon season in Asia :-)

  • Please provide the countries you want to visit (if possible) and approximately how long you're going to travel.

  • Please provide what kind of activities and sights you're picturing visiting or want to visit. It gives us a sense of feeling of who you are. A beach itinerary doesn't exactly suit a trekking traveler ;-)
