Eeeeeeeeeek so 2 weeks to go until I start the adventure of a lifetime on my way back to SA!!!
Yesterday all of my belongings were dropped off at the shipping company and it suddenly seemed so real!! A huge thanks to Murray and Angela for letting me ship my things on their container for FREE… let me tell u this has saved me huge amounts of money!! It costs £100 to ship a 30kg box home and then £30 per box thereafter. And believe me my boxes weighed more than i would have been able to afford to pay, the cost would have run into the thousands!!!
I have so many mixed emotions…. I’m excited and scared for South East Asia. I’ve been to Thailand before so I do know what to expect but the last time I went it was luxury all the way and with friends… this time (apart from the first week and a bit) I will be going solo and besides for the first week I have not booked anything.
From my “obsession” over the last year of reading other people’s blogs I know that the route I intend to travel is a common route and I will meet loads of travelers along the way. But thoughts like will I get bored of travelling for 4 months and just want the comfort of a fixed home or will I be lonely still cross my mind. I do know that I will be ok and I do know these thoughts are natural to have. I’m just thankful that for the first week or so that I will be spending New Years with people I know 😉
This whole trip just seems unreal…am i really doing this!!!!!!!!
