After much procrastination, I've decided to finalize and post my travel plans. I use the term finalize incredibly loosely, because I'm not exactly sure of anything beyond December, but it's definitely what I hope to do. This plan will probably change, but it's all I have for now.
Today is my last day of classes at Curtin, and I don't believe I'm going to be returning for another semester. It's been fun, but after a lot of thought, there's one thing that everything keeps boiling down to:
"Life is short".
Think of it in any way that you want to, Yolo, Carpe Diem, but I feel the need to get out there, see the world, and define who I am before I get any older. You've gotta take advantage of the things in front of you before you die, right?
Anyways, here is my plan thus far:
Early November: Backpack Indonesia
Late November - Late December: Backpack Thailand and Cambodia
January - May: Go to City University in Hong Kong for one semester
May to June: Backpack New Zealand, Possibly Australian East Coast
July and August: Backpack England, France, Spain, Holland, Sweden
September: Return to Brock!
For the first part of this journey (Up until Hong Kong) these are the homies that I will be traveling with, all from the UK, which I think is pretty cool.
I don't want to really overplan the trip, but I'm still waiting on acceptance from my HK uni (and acceptance into res there), as well. Oh, by the way: anyone who would like to join me for backpacking is more than welcome - the more the merrier.
Anyways, that's it for now!
