What’s next? Well, it’s that time of the year where I cannot sit still and I need to get going. Plus I am really tired and I guess it’s good to recharge. The perk of my current job is that my work place would close for a whole month so it is great for planning a long trip. This time round, I have decided to only do South East Asia mainly because of budget and the timing. Timing is because most places in the world will be experiencing winter and I am really kind of sick of cold weather by now.
Borneo Island: This is home for me. So, I don’t think I’ll be doing much touristy stuff but more of catching up with family and friends. Did I mentioned eating too!! I missed local seafood and durian. I hope it will be in season.
Cambodia: I have always wanted to visit Angkor but never really got there. So I don’t see any reason I shouldn’t visit the place since I am already in South East Asia. Christmas in Angkor – that would be fun.
Thailand: I have always had a soft spot for Thailand. I don’t know why. It felt like a second home. Great food, awesome people, love the culture, beautiful beaches minus the touts, cheap goods and what are there not to love about Thailand? I don’t really know. I have even considered working in Thailand for a bit for the experience and immerse myself in its culture. What do you reckon, C.F?
