To say that I’m excited might be an understatement. To say that I haven’t quite processed it all might also be true. But in four days I will be setting sail for the other side of the world for three months- to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Bali, Australia & New Zealand – and I don’t think I’ve ever been so ready for anything in my life.
Itineraries have been set, visas issued, passports polished. Many, many most probably over-expensive and unnecessary travel products have been bought. Flights too. Travel folders have been created too because myself and my friend are probably the most over-prepared travellers that ever were. And simply more than anything, I’m excited for new places, new experiences and new people.
So here’s to a 2016 which is already starting off in the best possible way: full of possibilities. I will be trying to blog as much as I can while I’m away, dodgy wifi connections permitting, so please do follow my travels! I would love to hear any tips or recommendations as I go.
And lastly, I wish you all a happy new year. You don’t have to do anything as dramatic as leave the country to have a fresh start, you don’t have to look any further than to your own mind. As cheesy as it sounds, I wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2016 – enjoy!
