RTW 2011: South America-Africa-Europe-Transiberian-Asia-Australia

Solo traveler looking for companions on a round-the-world trip!
13 years ago, May 5th 2010 No: 1 Msg: #110252  

I bought a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires for December 27th, 2011. I plan to trek around South America and the only plan I have so far is making sure I end up in Salvador, Brazil during Carnaval (March). After a few months in South America, I wanted to work my way up the Eastern coast of Africa, then do a few months in Europe, then Transiberian across Russia, then spend a few months in Asia. I'm pretty open about what I see and where I go... I just know I'll leave the U.S. in December and plan to roam free until I'm out of money. 😊

About me: I'm 24, female, and have traveled a lot in Europe and Asia. I am conversational in Spanish and Russian, should definitely brush up on my Bengali and Dutch, and can fumble with a few phrases in Mandarin and Indonesian. Any takers? Reply to this

hey kwiesbrock
I am currently in Chile and am planning on being in Salvador during carnival next year. I am now looking for places to stay and they all seem to be pretty pricey. Have you found a place yet? Maybe we could somehow bunk together and make it a little cheeper. I am with my boyfriend and we heard that you can rent an apartment for a week and have a lot of people involved. Reply to this

Hi Eric and Tracy! I haven't started looking for a place yet, but the apartment idea sounds great. Do you know any others who are planning to be there? When would you arrive? I think I plan to fly from Caracas to Salvador on March 1st or March 2nd... then stay through Ash Wednesday at least. Will you be traveling from Chile? Reply to this

Hi Kimberly

I am also a solo traveller starting in February for Carnival however am undecided on Rio or Salvadore..

I am planning on travelling in South America for at least 3-6 months before heading to Spain for the summer.

Is there a particular reason you choose Salvadore?

If I decide Salvadore also would be happy to meet/share accommodation.
