The End

Where do I even begin? That was the most fun and interesting three months of my life. It’s super cliche but I know why people do it. I’ve made so many new friends all around the world and can’t wait to visit them in the future although I think the English ones will be the easiest ones to see for the moment while I work my butt off to get myself out of debt…

Some reasons why I’m happy to be home at the moment.

  1. Not having to live out of a back pack
  2. Access to all my clothes
  3. My cat!

But you don’t want to read that! You want to see what some of my highlights were! Well my friends, you are in luck as below are some of my highlights while I was away.

  1. Getting stoned at Jimmy Eat World when a random guys passed me a joint. I’d never been so high in my life.
  2. Laying in a hammock on a Fiji beach, watching the world go by.
  3. Flying a small plane in New Zealand.
  4. Ross and Athena’s wedding in California.
  5. Climbing the Sydney bridge.
  6. Visiting the glow worm caves in NZ.
  7. HOBBITON!
  8. Singing “I Want It That Way” at open mic nights and at every karaoke opportunity.
  9. Riding 35km on a bike through some beautiful New Zealand scenery with mountains in the background.
  10. Hugging a koala bear.
  11. Japan…I just love that country so much
  12. And of course…everyone I met!

Like I said on the previous post, this page will go on a break until I decide what to do next with it. I’ll probably end up with more food posts as I love eating and of course, when I visit a new country!

Thanks for joining me on this journey 😘

The itinerary

So you’re thinking “Nice one Ed! But where are you going?”

Well i’m glad you asked so here we go:

5th September to 14th September = California
(Then apparently you miss a whole day)
16th September to 23rd September = Fiji
23rd September to 20th October = New Zealand
20th October to 14th November = Australia
14th November to 28th November = Japan
28th November to 4th December = Hong Kong

And then finally home to see my cat who will bloody miss more than anything!

What have I done…

If you’re on this site then you know i’m leaving work for three months to go gallivanting halfway around the world and I’m currently sitting at my desk thinking “What have I done?”.  I’ve never been away for so long and I am absolutely terrified.

Why am I doing this?

The short version, because I want to see more of the world!

The longer version is a slightly different. I’m doing it because of two reasons.

1. Work has been pretty demanding and stressful recently and I just want a break from it. I’m in a position where I have a great opportunity to do some travelling,
2. A girl. I was in what I thought was a pretty good relationship but that has ended and it put me in a real dark place mentally.

BUT, let’s not dwell on that. That’s in the past, we are looking forward.

The goal of this website is my own pleasure really. Something I can look back and think “yeah I did that.”

Thank you for reading and I hope that you come back.
