Well, what can I say other than that this year’s travel plans didn’t really turn out at all as planned.
Just a month ago I was expecting a whole different turn to the year, but as everything in life, things always change – so I guess we will see how close to these plans we actually end up.
However, one thing is definitely confirmed – this week we’re going to Sri Lanka!
With our 4 month trip coming to an end here in Germany, we were clueless of what to do and where to go next – after the idea of visiting Sri Lanka came up and we did some research, we decided that it was definitely the place where we would be heading next.
We’ll be preparing to fly to Sri Lanka as you read this post, and I can’t tell you how excited we are! We would love to hear some tips and advice from you of how you think we should spend our 21 days exploring Sri Lanka.
After that, we’ll be heading to Malaysia and good old Kuala Lumpur again, from there we will travel down the coast, pass by the quirky city Melaka and maybe check out Johor in the south.
From what I understand one of the best things to do there is to eat & go shopping – which suits me perfectly!
After this our plans are still a bit fuzzy, but we will make our way up to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand where we will rest our feet and spend a couple of months working on some secret (!) projects we have going on.
We were considering doing exactly this last autumn, but decided to spend the winter skiing in Europe instead.
Now after spending 12 months traveling in Europe we’re longing back to Asia and knowing that Thailand accommodation is such great value for money – we hope that we can spend more money and focus on building our business than we would have been able to do in Europe.
We will of course not be able to stay away from traveling, and we have some really exciting travel plans in the coming months – so stay tuned! (hint: maybe another train trip like we did in Europe last year) …
I also promised Nathan long ago that we would spend his 30th birthday in India, so I’ll really try to keep that promise and after Thailand travel up to Myanmar, Nepal & India by September.
After all, what better way to celebrate the end of your 20′s than in India, a perfect representation of how your 20′s were – up-side-down, crazy, and inside-out..!
We would love to get some tips for things to do and foods to try in these places, so if you have any – share them below!
