+ Travel in a world of adventures
Read my full day to day blog of my first big overseas solo trip.
On Sunday afternoon 6:00pm I will be departing for my first ever big solo travel adventure. I will be away for four months traveling to 5 different countries. First stop is Muscat Oman , Second stop Durban South Africa , Third Bangkok Thailand , Forth Cambodia of where is will be spending a month doing Volunteer work, and last stop is Vietnam before returning home to New Zealand.
There are no words to describe my excitement but I am simply beaming with only a couple of days till I depart. This is not to say that nerves have not yet set in, but as of right now my joy and curiosity overtakes it.
For the past few years travel and the idea of seeing the world has crept more and more into my daily activities, from scrolling through Pinterest looking as the beautiful Thai islands in Stats class when numbers and bar graphs became all too boring.
Throughout my journey I hope to become more aware of the world around me and learn what I can do to change it . I hope to come out of my shell a bit more. Anyone who knows me may describe me as "the quite one. " Although this is part of my personality I hope travelling to new places as a solo female and only being able to blame myself if something goes wrong will allow me to become more confident and gain trust in myself.
Along the way I will be staying with family and friends and I will be doing a G adventure tour for Thailand and Contiki in Vietnam.
...Anyway I must get back to trying to figure out how I am going to fit four months of my belongings into one medium suitcase.
