25 days to go…

And 17 hours and 32 minutes to be exact but who’s counting right?

I was 8 years old and flicking through my baby book with my mother, when it came to a page titled ‘When I grow up I want to…’. Without hesitation, I ran to get a pen Β and began to write, in my childlike scrawl, ‘Travel the world and be a rockstar!’

Well, I’m now 27 and whilst I’m not a rockstar,Β to my utter disappointment,Β I am about to tick off that other childhood ambition of travelling the world!

So I packed in my teaching job, roped in a travel buddy (who didn’t need too much persuading) and booked the flights. No turning back now πŸ˜‰.

With 25 days to go and my anxiety bubbling away, preparations are in full swing.

First on the list: travel tattoo βœ”οΈThe plan is to get all the continents filled in. πŸ˜ƒ

Moving onto the daunting mission of condensing my 2 wardrobes, very large chest of drawers and 4 suitcases of clothes (too much clothes? Who me?) down to a 60l backpack has been difficult to say the least. However after 15 attempts and being brutal, I think I may have cracked it…Β  Can you spot my favourite book and film series? πŸ˜‰

We of course have a brief outline of things we’d like to see and do along our route.Β Speaking of our route:

  • Thailand
  • Laos
  • Vietnam
  • Cambodia
  • Thailand (island hopping)
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
  • Australia

If you have anyΒ hidden gems or must sees please let us know!

Must dash, just had the urge to see if I can squeeze that one extra dress into my rucksack…

  3. It sounds like a fab travel list. I travel pretty light so I’d be ok with a back pack, it’s the idea of hostels that would put me off lol
