No I am not joing the Navy haha, I am off to South East Asia for 6 weeks of busy travel ending in a week of relaxation in Koh Phangan, Thailand.
Yep, I finally found somewhere to go, someone to go with and it’s all booked in! As I mentioned before, I had the time off but nowhere to go and no one to travel with, and in my previous post about my dilemma I mentioned that I was sending an SOS email to my friend in San Francisco hoping he would be able to help, well Chris came to the rescue not only helping me decide where to go but he is now my travel companion.
So.. Next Saturday 21st August I fly out of Sydney (on an Airbus A380 woooo) after 9 hours I land in Singapore for 3 nights to visit my friend Mark, then off to Bangkok fora lovely reunion with Chris (going for the slow motion run though the airport for dramatic effect haha) the next morning we fly to Vietnam spend 12 days traveling around Vietnam then back to Bangkok for the night then 14 days though Thailand, Laos and Cambodia then off to Phuket for 2 nights then 10 days on beautiful Koh Phangan soaking up the sun and sipping cocktails. Bliss!
I will be on my email every few days and will update the blog whenever possible though I do warn you, I may be having too much fun and not find the time ;) I will be back October 2nd ready to jump right into wedding season. I am of course taking my camera and hope to come back with loads of beautiful photos from my time away.
I leave you with a photo taken on the Greek Island of Ios, where I met the lovely Chris and his wonderful brother Steve, exactly 5 years ago!
