Hi Ronnie, don’t have any advice, but it would be nice if you could tell us a bit about yourself in the ”Your introductions” forum

Hello and welcome.


Take lots of money?


On a more serious note I would say that it's difficult to give worthwhile advice when we don't know what experience you have.
Good on you for doing it (or in this case planning it) though and I hope you get there and that you enjoy your travels.
