Right will start from the top =D
Myself (22yr Male) and a friend of mine (26yr Male) are going to FINALLY begin our adventure this March,
Have been wanting to do this for years, We live on a small island near the UK, and run a Martial arts club, we have wanted to go see the real world and come back with some new skills =D
Basically this is how we want to travel...
We have a nice sum of cash between ourselves together we have near enough £20k for spending money,
Even with this though we will travel on a budget, as the longer our money last...the longer we stay away =D
We want to try and see the "real land" and meet the local etc, Helping out at any small villages we can even if just labouring chores, We will try and do as much Charity work we can out there, We want to experience the real life out there, Doing trekking hikes, Hell even stay in the jungle for a short time with basic supplies etc, Everywhere we go we are going to try and taste as much culture as possible, depending on location...Ideas like
We would like to dabble in Yoga and train as much as we can in this,
Train various martial arts while we are here,
Do some voluntry/charity work in some towns/villages
And of course we cant forget....PARTY PARTY PARTY =D
Will be the "enlightening" period =D, Here i would like to very much dabble pretty much the same as we would in India and maybe find some hike/trek trips also..
You get the picture =D
I ROUGH plan is as far..
India/Nepal/ Western China/Mongolia/Eastern China/Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos/Thailand and further south into Asia
We are leaving to India on March 13th and thats when the adventure begins,
Also when we arrive in Eastern China...we are planning at staying at the Shaolin Temple for a year if we can hack it,
You dont have to do this lol and this is where our Journey can part...Or if you want to do Shaolin more than welcome =D
Take care people!
