Well ok today i have told my boss i would like a career break, or faling that the likliehood of getting my job back if i resign. Wow i'm defo going for it. Not really feelin anythng but a bit of trepidation at the moment.
I'm trying like a madman not to be on the net planning the next 12 months and spending all my money. I'm not going to.

I know a few things;

I want to spend a few months getting fit and getting toned - and am going to achieve this at a Muay Thai camp on Koh Phangan, for around 2 months.

I want to get involved with local life somewhere - just to experience it really. I have joined couchsurfing.com (a great site) and will be making contact with locals wherever possible. I do want the beach/easy life but i dont want to be on 'holiday' for however long.

I want to come back to Liverpool in Nov 08 for my Dad's 50th - although this will probably be a diversion from an onward destination.

I want to see the following - Philippines/Malaysia/Vietnam/Cambodia/NZ/S Africa/Ghana/Machu Picchu/Trans Siberian Rail. Bit of a list eh?

Anyone who know's me will know how hard it is for me not to be arranging my onward transport from cambodia into vietnam and and trying to find travell buddies online to meet up with in 6 months time! Well in a loose route i'm going to try my best just to follow my feet.

Well 1st installment and all, hopefully someone will read this and maybe someone else will get to the second installment. I am not promising this is going to be exciting or even easy to read, but i do hope that there is someone out there who will stick with me and feel a bit of what i'm feeling throughout this journey.
