Where to go?...Im 32 but looking for a older travel companion. Im a bit older for my age i think ive done the partying scene and now just want to see the world.
Im being made redundant in october but want to be back in UK for xmas so thinking morocco west Africa and then back travelling jan but need to meet my mum for holiday in feb so not sure where to go.
I want to see the world but i suffer from aniexty so my only problem is. I dont like hours travelling most i think i can do is 5 hours but i dont want this to ruin my life so need the push to go further. I love reading and most of the time will be stuck in my kindle but would like to have a traveller with me to share the experience so if your the sort of person who Likes to be alone but have someone not so far away i.e seat in front then please get in contact to arrange a trip. My ambition is to see as many places next year as life is too short to say i wish id gone, happy travelling

4I'm not saying its impossible.
Its just a lot more difficult than (say) SE Asia.Or Australia,or the USA.There are plenty of other places in the world...
If you really want to go there,then why not?Plenty of people go to Morocco,rather fewer to West Africa.But it is not easy to do that kind of trip (esp.alone) unless you are pretty confident ;-)

5You should be fine in Morocco, especially if you speak French. Parts of West Africa are quite the culture shock, though again, if you speak French you can ask for the right bus or grand taxi. A heads up: You'll almost certainly have to expand your 5-hour travel limit.
You asked for people to contact you. Are you aware that TT disabled PMs?

9It is.....great in some ways,but tiring and annoying in others ;-)
You will get more varied opionions on this if you post a new question in the Morocco section (Africa branch).
Basically,in the tourist areas there is a lot of hassle.People trying to sell you things,trying to guide you,beggars,touts.
It can be pretty continuous and unless you are a very tolerant person,it can be difficult to cope with..particularly when it is very hot and you are trying to get around in a hurry.
