Here’s a map of the region, for the perspective:
I’ll be reading this TIME Magazine story on the plane:
I’m very curious about the big Chinese cities in general and Shanghai in particular. And apparently the city is changing so quickly that you could visit what seems to be a whole new city in a couple of years. Olympic Games in Beijing are in 2008, right? I’ll probably see loads of construction works going on everywhere then.
That’s it for now,
For this one, I could really use your help. As I’ll probably be without news for long periods of time during my travels, I’d like to ask you (anyone who is reading this) if you could keep me up to date on any interesting / gripping / important news? I’m thinking current events, cyclones to dodge, presidential elections and any great new inventions involving chocolate. Click on comment, and let me know!
Preparations are fully underway for something I have set out to do a long time ago: a voyage through Asia, for up to a year. I have dreamt a long time of this opportunity, travelling with only around 18 kilos of utterly necessary equipment in my ultra-durable backpack (though probably after two weeks I wish I had written 10 kilos here).
Underway, I will post frequent impressions as I immerse myself in such unfamiliar countries, cultures, sights and sounds. Departing on the 9th of October, I think this travel journal will really get going after I’ve acclimatised in Singapore, and once I’ve started my explorations in Indonesia (oh god, I can’t wait for the food there! yummm).
Anyway, I’d better get going!
