I thought I would quickly just share my adventure so far in the form of maps because I don’t want to ramble on and on ya know. I started in Cornwall, UK where I have lived for most of my life. I feel lucky to have been brought up there as it’s a beautiful place with a relaxed way of living. However, for me personally it has many drawbacks and this was highlighted to me when I went to uni in London for 3 years. But that is for another blog post because I have lots to say on that topic 😉
The route we did around Thailand and Vietnam is a popular one and one I think is great if it’s a first adventure or a solo trip. Although the countries were completely different to anywhere we had been before, it didn’t take long to adjust to their cultures. The fact sooo many people spoke English and there were always fellow travellers doing what we were doing really helped. I’m not saying our time there was plain sailing but it wasn’t as daunting as I thought. And most of our great experiences were made that good by the locals that helped us.
There are so many places/things we didn’t get to see, it would be easy to spend several more months there than we did but due to visas and money it makes it a bit more difficult (as I’m sure lots of people understand).
