Travel Companions

I was thinking of getting this forum as a "watering hole" for all ardent local Malaysian photographers who intend to plan for some overseas trip mainly for photography but does not have adequate companionship to make the trip. For example, there are some who wish to visit Yunnan, Tibet or Jiuzhaigou in China. Or those who like India, Bali or wherever.
Ideally, the group comprises a small group of 2-4 persons at most. The basic understanding would be -
1. common destination
2. same duration and scheduled date
3. strictly on each personal sharing cost
4. pleasant character to mix and medically fit
This arrangement means a lot of give-and-take attitude on the participants. But it presents good opportunities to make friends (or enemies) to last a lifetime. And we hopefully get those treasured golden images after the trip which you can talk for days without end. Feedbacks most welcome.

great idea...

I'm of the same mind like you.
Would love to take the rail trip to Lhasa..heard its fantastic view.
Bali, Angkor Wat, etc or even eco trips would be great.
I'm easy going and will go along with the majority's decision on trips.
Lets meet up and talk abt it. But I'm a banana so cannot speak Mandarin.... so China may be difficult for me.
