Well today i thought was a good day to start my blog. This is the day i have been planning for probably around 3 years.... You see i missed out on the backpacking when i was in my early 20's - my own fault really.. having a boyfriend etc but now glad i did, I am 33 years old (in 2 weeks) and on the 28th Nov 2010 - i am doing the most spontaneous event i have ever done... i am quitting my job and taking a trip around the world for 3 months...
For the past couple of months i have scanned the internet on destination advice, read blogs, quoting fares, pricing up hostels etc etc to build up my courage and confidence for today - the day i book my flights !! I have hardly slept the past 2 nights - my mind has been have a battle with it self "am i doing the right thing", " what if i cant get another job when i'm back" etc but they say the hardest thing about doing a round the world trip is making the booking itself - from there its sorted !!!
After lots of reasearch my main flights is:
28th November 2010 - Heathrow - Bangkok
Bangkok - Kuala Lumpar - overland
28th December 2010 - Kuala Lumper - Bali (additional flight with Air Asia)
4th January 2011 - Bali - Darwin
Australia overland with internal flights
30th January 2011 Sydney - Christchurch
New Zealand overland
19th February 2011 Auckland - Fiji
26th Febraury 2011 - Filij - Heathrow (los Angeles)
Fare total £1256.00 plus £29.78 for Air Asia Sector !!! Bargain i think
Its now 7.30am.... a serious gym session to get the head into gear and then a call to Jarvis at roundtheworldflight.com in London to book !!!
