So it's getting close... exactly 15 days till I'm on the flight to Asia for 1.5 months on my own for the first time. I'm getting nervous and excited. I have been travelling a lot over the years but this is the first time completely on my own. I know it's normal to be nervous and I don't doubt that everything will be fine, but still there are so many things to think about and to remember when you're on your own!?

Well, if you were male, I would say spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch... But, considering - you'd have to borrow item #2. So instead, I recommend taking along your common sense, your sense of adventure and a clean pair of undies. ;)

Have a great trip and you will do just fine while out wandering the world!!!

Haha, yeah i guess it will be a bit difficult with the testicles.. and when it comes to the spectacles... nah i think I see better without them
Well I just hope that I have thought of all the important things, the rest will work itself out I'm sure

Indio....your such a independent strong person to be doing this its great. All the feelings you have are completly normal and im sure when you arrive and settle a little you will love it. Wish i was going. Think of all the adventure! you never know what is around the corner...but even thought its a little scary its so exciting. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time just keep your wits about safe and trust your intincts.

Take care
