Yes, it’s official. I received my unpaid leave to go backpacking in Asia, starting from mid January 2014 until the end of May.
The idea of backpacking came to me in May. I didn’t win the lottery of €30 million so I started thinking what I would do if I had that kind of money; the answer was travelling. Then I realized I didn’t need millions to do the thing I love.
For the past 1.5 month I started planning my trip to Asia. The countries that I’m going to visit are; Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and if I have time also Indonesia.
I’m still figuring out the exact route, I have a broad idea and I’m still deciding on my starting point: Bangkok or Singapore.
Now all the other preparations can start:
– getting vaccinations
– what to bring (and what to leave at home)
– saving some more money
– figuring out my route
– and a whole bunch of other stuff ☺
