I'm tired of Canadian Winters. I'm tired of not doing all the things i said i'd "one day" do. I'm tired lamenting my last relationship and brooding about being alone.
So my remedy was pretty drastic. I sold the property, sold the car (Honda SIR, sniff), paired down my clothes to a few shorts, pants, t-shirts, and hiking boots, sat in a corner...looked at the remnants of my worldly possessions stuffed into a Bora 80 Packpack and felt for the moment that i should be locked in a white room with a straight jacket on. Now i see why people do this at age 20 and not 30.
The good part about selling everything is that you have money in the bank account. To the tune of over $30,000!!
So I bought a ticket to Bangkok, Thailand and leave on December 31st to start my new life come the new year.
Thing being, i'm going to be kinda lonely i think. Having a wifey around for the past few years made me lose my independance and i kinda relied on her for her company and getting things done.
So if you'd like to join me, either at the outset or at some point along the way, i'd more than love the company. I'm starting in Thailand and will use my 60 days up there before moving on. Which direction is up to me, i'm my own pilot with no set direction or time limit.
My plan is to drift south first, so Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Phillipines, Australia, New Zealand, French Polynesia are all on the "to do" list. That'll all take over a year or two, so let me know at what point you'd like to jump in, and i can manouvre my way to where you are.
I'm 30 (blech), athletic, adventurous, like climbing things, scuba diving, and like lazing out on beaches as well. I'm layed back, funny (i like to think so), don't smoke, and so on.
If you think i'm balls crazy for doing this and you'd like to say so, by all means let me have it as well. I personally dont know what to think about what i'm doing.
Hope to hear from someone.
