I grew up in Asia, so not surprisingly I am familiar with many destinations there. My very first taste of solo travel/backpacking was in my final year at university. I saved up the summer before by working a job in a Mechanical Engineering department lab, and used the money to backpack around New Zealand that Christmas break. It was a soft introduction, since language was not a barrier and New Zealand is so backpacker/traveller-friendly, but it lit the fire well and good.
