I'm leaving for my trip tomorrow. I'm quite nervous, anxious, scared and don't feel like going anymore. I keep telling myself this is supposed to be fun and exciting. Going away for an extended period of time, as I am, I feel a bit overwhelmed. I felt the same way before going to Southeast Asia last year for the first time. But that was only for two weeks; this time my trip is more than twice as long. Another factor adding to my anxiety level is the fact that my plane lands in Bangkok at midnight. It would've been much better if I was reaching Bangkok during the day time. Anyhow, like last time, it promises to be an excellent learning experience and an adventure to remember.
I've no fixed plan; just a general idea of the things I want to do and see. It'll be just me and my backpack for quite some time. I'm hoping travel and change of place will impart some new vigor to my mind.
I'll try to put some updates on this blog from time-to-time. Until then, drop me a line or leave a note here.
I'll end with these words of wisdom from Mark Twain:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things 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.”
