I am currently on the East Coast of Australia in the Brisbane to Sydney departure region looking for someone to plan the middle leg of my around the world trip.
We'll want to try for the following countries, in order of East to West, (but not priority).
Manilla (I have business in Philippines so a regional trip from Singapore would work)
India (Somewhere with cheapest routes/connections, but also still desirable location to visit)
All legs are subject to the benefit of the cheapest time/fare etc. For example if flying from New Zealand to Manila/Singapore/India is WAY more expensive than Brisbane, we may forget New Zealand or fly back to Brisbane. But I have found the prices are only marginally different.
What's more, we can go to or from any other near by location of interest, or simply eliminate one all together for the sake of the best route/fare.
We're looking to explore on a budget while getting to Slovakia. We'll do Instanbul to Slovakia by land. So we just have to get to Instanbul and would like a few adventures along the way.
So basically, if it costs $1,200 to get to Istanbul, we'd ideally like to spend around that in pieced together flight sections (legs). Maybe regional airlines come in the mix. AND, I am also willing to pay more than what the direct cost would be within reason. Say $1,500 total (each) for all airfare (for example –may be more or less, I don't know). Just know, we're more budget than not, but we'll spend what we have to :)
We'll start the trip June 1st. We're thinking 3-4 days in New Zealand
Eventually we'll make our way by land to Spain until September, then fly back to Vancouver from any of the cheapest airports (perhaps London) so we can hit Paris on the way :)
Hope that makes sense. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I would be happy to have travel arrangements for any and all legs (together, or separate)
Please keep in mind "Baggage" and other fees when documenting options.
We'll work from a Spreadsheet in Google Docs, or another method of sharing best leads.
Thanks so much,
Skills: research, travel-arrangements
