The Special One
Hi. I’m 32 and I've in Manchester, England and have lived there all my life. I currently work in supply chain for a Multi national food manufacturer called McCormick. However, my time with this company will soon come to an end (to much relief of some of my work colleagues I'm sure!) when I set off on an around the world adventure on the Oct 22nd.
My personal adventure is planned to last approx 9 months. I am going with a total open-minded way of thinking and simply going with the flow so who knows what will happen or who'll I’ll meet whilst I’m out there. My tour / adventure begins in New York then LA (both for 3 days). Then it’s over to Hawaii (inc Maui) for 2 weeks then over to Fiji. From there I go to New Zealand for 3 weeks and into Sydney by the 18th December for the Christmas and New Year festivities and celebrations (cant wait!!). I intend to stay in OZ for at least 3 months then its over to Singapore, maybe then malaysia, indonesia, definetely Thailand (approx 3 months) and Vietnam. Then home :-( and back to normality!
Initially ill be a lone traveller (yes I am slightly petrified), but I’m hoping and I’m sure I will meet lots of fantastic people from many countries and hopefully make some good friends whilst on the road.
Why am i doing this? Through the advice & encouragement of a very special and forever friend, someone who's always there for me and i can always rely on, someone with a heart of gold who inspired me to do this & enjoy make the most of my life!
Secondly i just want to enjoy myself and I want to have some fun, i want to see the world, I want to meet some wonderul people, i want to break my boring routine back home and prove there’s more to life than getting up at 7am each day and going to work. Finally I regret not doing certain things earlier in my life and I don’t want not travelling and not seeing the world to be an entry on this list - Everyone who’s done it says its amazing! and im now off to find that out for myself.
