2012 will be a year where I’ll go out of my comfort zone and test the waters. I’ll be travelling to different countries in Southeast Asia and if all goes well, I’ll be able to live like a nomad. I know a few people who have already done this backpacking journey and I’m inspired to take the same route since I’ve been prolonging this travel adventure for quite some time.
But I couldn’t just pack my things with me and go on a trip until I’ve settled a couple of financial setbacks. Even up to now, I’m still working on a few items that I should’ve completed a long time ago. Mapping out the locations, figuring out the itineraries, computing the budget, and basically coming up with a plan – all of which I haven’t really done yet and I’m ready to hit the panic button. I’ll probably just throw caution to the wind and make those decisions when I’m out there.
This is scary sh*t but ever since I was able to go out of the country, I’ve also been taking a step higher to see how far I can go in staying out of my comfort zone and travelling beyond boundaries. I’m an adrenaline junkie and I plan to go for those moments that get me all pumped up.
I hope to try some physical activities in different locations. Tubing in Luang Prabang, eating spiders in Vietnam. I’ve already bungy jumped in Macau and also in Malaysia. Who knows, I’ll be able to get some Ski Holidays and have great snow adventures in time. The nearest country there is, according to friends is South Korea but that would require a visa – something I haven’t really fully tackled. But I’ll definitely get a taste of ski boarding in time.
I’m going full-time with my freelancing career and I’m studying other projects to help me sustain this type of lifestyle. Uncertainty is a fear I’m overcoming and I’m definitely a newbie when it comes to being on the road on my own, but I’ll enjoy the ride in the process of learning. Besides, I need to get out of this stage of comfort as it’s not fun anymore if I keep my current way of living.
