My visa expires at midnight….I’m meant to be going home today after one year travelling and working in Australia. I never intended to stay longer than a year, but I am lucky enough to be able to decide otherwise. I do not have some of the commitments my fellow travellers have, or have a ticket home and I’m not ready. I would like to see my family and friends but I know in my heart that if I went home it’s unlikely I’d be able to get back to this side of the world quickly enough.
It’s been a big year and the last 4 months working on farms has been challenging, before that I was working in Sydney, albeit not very hard and I was living a very relaxed lifestyle but it was still work and it was still nearly every day.
So it’s time for a time out. Using the tax back I have received from the Australian government I’m on my way to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia starting a 3 month trip heading around Malaysia to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. I have a rough idea about what is in store and a loose plan of where I’d like to go but I’m going to be travelling day to day again thinking on my feet and I can’t wait.
I’m traveling alone around Malaysia meeting up with Audree in Bangkok on the 5th of June continuing the adventure together. It will be the next step in my relationship with traveling and my relationship with Audree. Wish us luck!
