This is the diary of my transcontinental adventures across Afro-Eurasia. I've just turned 22 and my name's Steve although most of my friends call me Bugs. The first leg of my journey is taking me to China where I'll be witnessing the solar eclipse of 22-Jul-'09. After a few weeks in China and short visits to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, I will be relocating to awesome Bangkok for about 5 months where I'm undertaking a semester exchange to study journalism and advanced reporting in Asian politics. During this time, I plan to take every opportunity to explore Thailand and visit neighbouring nations (Laos, Cambodia, Burma, etc.)
By mid-December, I plan to backpack my way from Bangkok to London for several months as I travel via India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, the Middle East, Egypt and Holland. From there, I will hopefully have enough funds left over to still see France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain. Will just have to see how good I can be at saving the pennies. 😉
Journey begins: July 16, 2009
Journey ends: When funds run dry.
Keep in touch friends,
