Asian Odyssey.

I missed the 100 day point that I was planning on blogging about, but it’s day 102 and just as apt a time to blog!

I’ve been away from the UK for 102 days and what a 102 days they have been. I’m so glad I’ve done this. I’ve met some amazing people and had some fantastic experiences. Without getting too soppy, travelling to Asia has been one of the best things to happen to me. It’s opened me up to things I could never have imagined and forced me to face a fear of the unknown. Before I would never have kayaked through a pitch black cave, let alone even get into a kayak (or a cave!).

Asia has a place in my heart as a home away from Sunbury, St Davids, Bristol and Cardiff. Northern Thailand is my “place” and I know I’ll be back here again some day. It’s like a magnet!

We leave for Australia in about a week and although I’m excited to broaden my horizons, I’ll be sad to leave this beautiful place. It’s well and truly captured me.
