Our Travel Plans For The Next 6 Months

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.

We’ll then finally make a stop over in Singapore, a place which has kept eluding us during each and every of our Asia trips.

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!

      We’ve had some pretty interesting days here in Sri Lanka so far, definitely an adventure ;) I’d love to make a visit to the Philippines, it seems like a amazing place.

    This sounds like a fun plan, and love that you’re keeping it flexible. Looking forward to exploring Asia through your posts.

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 12, 2012 at 11:21 am #

      Yeah we’ve never been very good at sticking to our plans so we’ve learned that the best way for us is giving ourselves flexibility from the start :) Stay tuned for our Asia posts coming soon..!

    I envy you for this exotic destination and I am sure that you will have a great time in Sri Lanka, wish you all the best

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 13, 2012 at 5:06 am #

      thanks – we are really enjoying ourselves at the moment :)

  4. Claudia April 9, 2012 at 11:38 am #

    Ah that’s so cool! We’re leaving for Sri Lanka in three days and are as excited as you guys are :-). What are your plans so far?

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 12, 2012 at 11:24 am #

      That’s awesome! Right now we’re in Hikkaduwa, will be staying here for a couple of days and then head inland to the tea plantations and Nuwara Eliya, maybe pass by Yala National Park before that as well. How about you?

      Have a great time in Sri Lanka guys!

  5. Alexey Statsenko April 12, 2012 at 6:06 pm #

    Guys, if you have not been to Penang and Georgtown, I highly recommend to spend there 2-3 days. Really nice national parks, good variety of Indian, Chinese and Malay food. I loved it and will definitely go there next time I am in Malayasia.

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 13, 2012 at 5:05 am #

      Hey Alexey – thanks for the tip – we have been to Penang and LOVED it there! great food and heaps of culture :)

  6. Ryan April 13, 2012 at 6:16 pm #

    haha sounds like you guys have an exciting year ahead of you! Spending the birthday in India might be a little reminiscent of that Wes Anderson movie “The Darjeeling Limited”. Hope you have a blast!

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 13, 2012 at 7:04 pm #

      Hey Ryan – yes we are very excited about our travel plans for this year – Sri Lanka so far is truly amazing!

  7. Hogga April 14, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

    Sounds amazing! My travel plans keep changing as well depending on what I get sick of and my financial situation haha

  8. The World of Deej April 20, 2012 at 12:25 am #

    Awesome you guys are headed to Singapore. It’s #1 on my list…

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 26, 2012 at 11:59 am #

      yeah – we can’t wait, heard it is a really amazing and fun city to visit!

    When booking return ticket, my
    suggestion is always try to look at the Airline’s website and buy 2 x one way
    if possible. One can find cheap air tickets on deal finding websites. Example recently
    I got cheap air tickets Melbourne to Hobart $45.95  

  10. Abu Dhabi City Tour April 25, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

    really fine plans

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 26, 2012 at 11:59 am #

      thanks – we are really enjoying them ;)

    Hey, if you do happen to visit India for Nathan’s birthday and happen to be in or around Mumbai. Do let me know, beers on me :)

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog April 26, 2012 at 5:42 am #

      Great! We’ll definitely stay in touch if we visit India and Mumbai. Glad to hear you like our blog :)

  12. Lee Carter: global-goose April 28, 2012 at 11:54 pm #

      Awesome, where are you guys planning on going?

      • Lee Carter: global-goose April 29, 2012 at 6:04 am #

         Not much of a plan right now, landing in Bangkok at the end of June and we literally don’t have a timescale we will be in South East Asia.

  13. Flashpacker Family May 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    Looking forward to seeing what you think of Singapore. I haven’t been yet either, even though I’ve been to this part of the world countless times. We’re going at the end of June though.

    • Sofia - As We Travel Blog May 23, 2012 at 3:50 am #

      also looking forward to Singapore – heard many things about the place so it should be interesting to explore!

    There are so many things to discover in Malaysia. You should go to Terengganu, Langkawi and Pahang for National Park :)
