Hi

My partners 20 year old daughter has been saving for a travel holiday for several years now and time has come to start planning.

She's going to be going on her own but will meet up with friends after xmas. She's probably going to be going east and doing some charity work, possibly with Orangutans or similar (in Borneo).

So we're going to sit down this afternoon and go through her options....maybe fly to Thailand and go from there.

Not sure how much planning should be done or should it be a case of....."might go here tomorrow, might go there tomorrow" and literally do things on the spur of the moment (as a 51 year old virgo, i would have everything planned down to the last detail)

This is her "gap year" which she is taking before starting a 4 year uni course at Essex uni.

So if anyone has any advice or pointers to websites etc, it would be very reassuring and welcome.

Kindest regards

Andy

Hang out on thorntree and make a list on what essentials you need to cover. Do not forget insurance and planning for emergencies.

Plan the initial part as well as some things she wishes to do, then be flexible about filling in the gaps.

Airbnb do accommodation all over the world and you can get places really cheap to stay at short notice. They have reviews as well so you can see which ones are trustworthy. £25 voucher: www.airbnb.co.uk/c/hannahl423
