Basic story is I have worked really hard for the last couple of years(jobs, college etc) but now i feel like i've achieved enough. I feel like life is getting too much like a hamster on a wheel....i wonder does everyone else in here feel like that?
I'm from a small village in Ireland, where the mentality is to settle down and have a good job and babies and "sure isnt that all you get out of life" ya know. Some of the lucky ones have gone to australia for a year( which consisted of only drinking and pulling) and then they come home thinking they can die happy.
I've done a bit of traveling (europe, us etc) but i still haven't found what I'm looking for (don't sue me bono).
My plan is to go from ireland in the middle of sept 08 to Beijing(1 week), Hong Kong(1 week), Then to Bangkok from which I will spend the next 2 and a half months traveling round thailand, cambodia, laos, vietnam. I was thinking about doing some volunteer work for a couple of weeks( heard of a school near angor wat) etc, but basically just see new things, find out new ways of life. I think i will then fly from Phuket to sydney in the early part of dec.
When in sydney hopefully relax for couple of weeks( enjoy xmas, new years), and then in Jan 09 work in sydney or somewhere else for a few weeks. I should have about 10,000 still left in the bank when i get to Australia so hopefully i wont have to work too hard. I may even get a cheap flight to New Zealand for about 2 weeks and then go back to sydney and buy a small campervan ( looking online some are about 2000 euro and if i went halves with someone it would be even better and we hopefully should get that money back!). With the camper van hopefully 1 or 2 people I want to travel up the coast and just see what happens.
Hopefully leave Aus in June 09 and head to fiji for a week or 2 and the the trek home through USA
Just wondering if any other cool people( dont worry I dont think I'm cool) are in the same boat and would like to meet up at any part? Or even if anyone has any advice? I might put this in the round the world forum too.
