Where have I travelled in the past two years?

In November 2015, I told myself I would put travel plans to rest because I needed to save money for Iceland in winter the following year.

But Iceland never happened in 2016, for reason I couldn’t recall, and I remember telling myself I would make it happen the following year.

After 16 months of not travelling, I flew to Luang Prabang – a city in north central Laos – for a short trip in April/May 2017.

Movies that make you want to see the world

This year, I may or may not travel.

But who knows, because based on last year’s adventures I learnt that I was capable of making an impromptu decision. Just like when I decided to purchase return tickets for my then 7-year-old nieces, five days prior to flying to Jakarta … just because I wanted companions and most of all, I wanted to expose them to a backpacking adventure. That was in May 2015 and boy, we had a blast.

Quotes that make you want to see the world

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” – Aldous Huxley It is never too late to travel solo. I started doing it just recently. After many years of contemplating and procrastinating, I flew to Denmark last December. I was nervous but excited at the same time. At the end of my three-week trip, I learnt that travelling alone is not a bad decision after all. It is okay to travel alone and be afraid of it. Along the way, you will make new friends and overcome fear one step at a time because you have no choice. If you are afraid of embarking on your own adventure, I hope this will help. You may also want to read travel quotes to inspire you to see the world. Personally, I love reading quotes. Especially on travel and adventure. Here are my six favourite quotes I found online 🙂

A traveler lost in translation

How does it feel to travel alone to a country where you don’t speak the language and know no one? And the only language you bring is your own? When I traveled in Denmark, stopping a random person on the street for help was easy. I didn’t face a language barrier because most Danish people and travelers or tourists I bumped into spoke English until I met Cecelia.
