My last flight is booked. I've had a dozen vaccinations and I feel like a biology experiment! My medical insurance is ‘almost’ sorted and my visas are being processed. Surprisingly, even my accountant has finally stopped telling me off.

I'm about to study Thai massage. I'm going to visit my favourite elephant sanctuary, travel across Asia visiting all those people who I miss dearly. I'll be teaching and practicing yoga. I'm going to experience Tibetan culture, and will probably bring back with me another tattoo. I'm going to challenge myself, move out of my comfort zone and create unforgettable memories.

So, this is the list of all the places I'm going to visit. When it's written down like this it's intimidating, but also how exciting! 

Thailand -> Laos -> Cambodia  -> Vietnam -> Burma -> (still trying to squeeze this one in!) -> Bangkok -> Singapore -> Bali -> Kuala Lumpur -> Nepal (teaching yoga!!) -> India (more yoga)

I'm pretty sure that at one point or another my friends will get either a sobbing FaceTime message or a random paradise/handstand picture! But it will be worth it. Susan Sontag once wrote: "I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
— Mark Twain
