haha this is true - very jealous!


I leave April 27... I'm going to spend 2 months in SE Asia - northern Thailand, Laos, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia maybe, then I'm flying to Paris. From there, a train south to my parents' holiday house. I will hang about with them for a bit. We are doing a drive holiday along the Cote d'Azur and from there to Tuscany, returning home via Switzerland. In July I'm going to that Exit festival thing in Serbia, so I might check out a few places suggested in the other thread. Then in September, I will see the parents off when they return to Australia and I will stay on. At some point this year i plan to visit Ukraine (mainly for Pripyat), and at the beginning of 2011 I want to do a cargo ship cruise down the east coast of the Americas. I might then go back to Chiang Mai from there for a while.

How about you?

20 days until go time.

What comes next? A hot apartment in Istanbul, bazaar shopping, Turkish baths, a 500km trek along the Lycian Way on Turkey's Mediterrenean coast, the deserts of Syria, Mt Nemrut, a dance workshop retreat in Portugal, maybe some WWOOFing, then off to start a new life, a new job and a new career in London.
The drinks were few and the people many. It was everything I expected and less.

My countdown is probably the longest. But 11 months until I scoot out of here for 3 months to Central America. Yeew!!!

Hate having to wait until the Uni holidays, but grateful I get 3 months off each Summer.
I wish I were an artist.
to live in dark corners of beautiful cities.
music to coat my ears and beat my heart.
passion, love and splatters of paint.
coffee cups, cobble stones and soft clouds of smoke.
There is so much beauty in this world.

Have been to the US a few times but either working or holidaying on my lonesome so this trip with 2 of my gf's will be enormously epic

Just about to leave from the airport now!!

Nairobi > Zanzibar (5 nights) > Arusha (2 weeks volunteering) > Safari into Serengeti, Ngorongoro crater etc (4 nights).

Quite excited but also nervous as my first time to Africa and my first time travelling solo. If anyone has any tips, I'd love to hear them that's if I can access internet in Zanzibar given they have been without electricity for over 1 month.
