One month to go...

... The list

rain 11 °C

Today's Mai 11th and so far I'm really satisfied with my plannings. Gear is not yet completed, but with parcels flying in almost every day I should be done with this by the end of next week. And I think it's pretty good to have time on my side to sort those things out, which will have to stay at home :/

I have started to create a list in my head, what aims I want reach and things I want to do on the trip. It's not a promise I'm going to do them all (espacially those associated with spiders :D) but I'll give it a try and going to keep you updated.

1. Getting an Open water and Advanced Open water diver's license (probably Thailand).
2. Giving something good back to every country I'm visiting (volunteering for s.th. etc.)
3. Learning to cook a typical meal in every country I'm visiting
4. Learning (at least) how to say "Yes", "No", "Hello", "Thanks" and "Please" in every language I'm confronted with
5. Visiting at least one person that I met during my former travels
6. Getting a (small) tattoo
7. Climbing the Machu Picchu
8. Taking a boat on the Li river
9. Visiting Lhasa (when possible)
10. Sunset @ Angkor Wat
11. Taking a selfie every week (to see myself changing :D)
12. Reducing flights to the minimum and taking trains/boats/buses instead
13. Reducing litter by using refillable containers/reusable items
14. Diving @ Great Barrier Reef and on the Galapagos Islands
15. Improving my spanish
16. Travelling to the end of the world
17. Couch Surfing
18. WWOOFing
19. Learning how to surf
20. Meeting awesome people :)
21. Combating my fear of heights by covering at least 100 height meters (up-> down) within max. 30 minutes (skydiving/bunjeejump/paragliding etc)
22. Combating my fear of spiders by having a big one sitting on my hand
23. Jumping down a waterfall
24. Seeing (touching?) a wombat (favorite animal ^^)
To be continued...

I would like to suggest that you start a new map. And put the same date in a Stop as you put into your blog at the bottom in 'Describes Travel From'.
That is an alternative method of Connecting the blog entry with your travel map & works quite well.,

Are you going to be keeping your blog up to date as you travel?

If you have the time, you might want to investigate getting your Vietnam Visa before leaving home.

Happy planning.

Thanks for your comment, Steve :)

I will have the map updated as soon as there's an almost specific itinerary.

And yes, I'm planning to keep this updated :) For my friends and family to follow and for my own memory ;)

Concerning visa: I'm going to get them on the road. I don't want to start sending my passport around via mail now, risking loss so close to departure. It's way more expensive in Germany aswell.

Best wishes
