I should probably mention that I am planning on taking a career break and travel the world for a year when I turn 30! And yes, doing it entirely on my own. It’s a bit daunting, and I have no doubt that I have terrified the life out of my parents, but it’s something that needs to be done before an opportunity is missed.
I’m having great fun researching trips with STA. I went in and had a chat to one of the ‘Travel Experts’ the other week about a possible route.
Good news! It is all possible.
So at the moment it is:
Los Angeles – could go to San Francisco/Las Vegas
South Africa (possibly going into Namibia and Botswana)
Back to London
I was thinking about doing a bit of volunteering in Thailand with Elephant conservation – I’ve always been a bit of an elephant fan since I went out to South Africa a few years ago. Has anyone done this?
I was advised to do tours in Burma and India and have liked the idea of these:
Has anyone done these or can anyone recommend other places to go along my route?
