A Year In Travels : 2014

I am 5 months late! I know. I have been preoccupied drafting post and editing a lot but this one can't be missed no matter how belated this post is. Besides that, when you are traveling, you never really paid attention to the date, days, months and the time. I have been there on one of those longer backpacking journey. It's all good. Here is a reflection of my year in travels last year.


My year in travels: 2014

4 countries with more than 10 destinations for this year:

Indonesia : Batam
Thailand : Krabi, Phi Phi, Phang Nga
Vietnam : Saigon, Dai Nam, My Tho, Cu Chi, Vinh Trang, Mui Ne, Nha Trang
Malaysia : KL, Johor Bahru

It was an eyeopening journey to live differently.
Some nights i had to eat tuna & bread, some nights i need to fend off crazy guys, and some night i waited in front of the atm for 5 fckng minutes to get my money because it was so slow in a state of panic. Some nights was a dream. I bathe in a black out, i run out at 3 in the morning to sit in the cold streets, i sleep under a tree, under many hammocks, inside lighted disco sleeper buses that plays crazy music.
Of course there are days when i wish my loved ones are with me to witness the sunset and days wish i could cry on end for being so thankful to God. Yes i can sleep in hotels and do convenient stuff but if i want luxury, i can just do it back home. That's not what i travel for.

Some nights i had to shout at taxi drivers trying to scam me, i lost my way, i almost miss my bus, i cried in the hotel room because i was too scared to sleep alone (only 1 time), i walked a thousand miles but in this whole experience.... i learnt to already live as poor as i already am.......it was my best journey in life.

"We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls."

Seize the moment. I can't wait for the next one and to many more. Filmed using my beloved Go Pro Hero 3+ & Powershot sx280hs. P.s Watch in HD.

For now, my mission is still conquering IndoChina. Follow my adventures as i travel more extensively to different parts of Asia. Safe travels!
