Epic Journey 2013 – It Begins!

It’s official!

In exactly one month I will be leaving Canada again for another trip around the world.  This trip will be longer, with more stops and I’m visiting 6 new countries along the way. I’ve been carefully planning for months – I began to plan this trip as soon as I got back in Sept 2012, so this puppy is a long time coming!

When I started to plan my trip I began with some basic questions – Where do I want to go next? What places are calling out to me? What can I absolutely not miss this time around? Also my trusty travel partner factors into this – where does Chelsea want to go and see?

Here’s the basic plan: Start with Chelsea in Bali for two weeks, then Philippines for two.  Miss C goes home after that (boo!) and I continue on to Singapore for ten or so days, then Malaysia for about the same. THEN, Australia awaits!  Yes, I am going down under FINALLY to see for myself why I love the Australians so much.  Anyone who knows me knows I’ve got a weak spot for that accent!! My final trip will be to NZ, where I will be catching up with two amazing ladies that I met on the night boat to Ko Tao! All in all I will be gone for about three and a half months, and will have covered most of SE Asia and Oceania in my adventures of this year and last.

This trip is very important to me, for a few big reasons. Number one, I graduated university this year, and this trip is my present to myself for accomplishing that milestone and taking a break before adult life and a full time job.  I learned so much and got to know myself in new ways while I was travelling last year, I knew my journeys weren’t over.  I want to strap on my trusty sandals, throw caution to the wind and live my life wild and free like we are meant to do, if only for a little while.

AND GUESS WHAT?? YOU GET TO COME WITH ME! In blog, form, that is. 😛

Welcome aboard. It’s gonna be a hell of a ride.

  1. Loads of irony in the fact that I’m sitting on the beach in Koh Tao reading this as I’m scanning train and bus schedules trying to figure out how to get from here to Malaysia and eventually Kuala Lumpur so I can either fly to Bali or the Philippines next. (I’m not sure which direction I want to do the circle…) I have a feeling you and I may cross paths at an airport, train station, or along a ferry at some point.

    • Sounds like it!! I start in Bali July 1, lets see if we can make paths cross! That would be cool i love your blog 🙂

      • Yeah – I can almost guarantee it’s going to happen. My birthday is July 3rd and out of of everywhere along the path I could spend it I’m about 100% sure Bali is where I want to be.
