Round The Corner (World)

Post by Shrek » Sun Feb 08, 2015 1:32 pm

Well that's it I'm off, its just taken me a year to sell the house so I'm in the process of applying for my visas before I set off on a great new adventure. After working for Her Majesty for 24 years and then having a few other jobs and meeting some great people at some ABR rallies and listening to what they have done, I just thought to my self life is to short and if you don't do it now when will you do it????

I have told some friends over the last your of my intentions but the days has finally arrived.

The rough plan is to leave on the 22 March 2015 and Travel east, I don't have a time scale.

Route - Poland - Bulgaria - Turkey - Georgia - Russia/Azerbaijan - Kazakhstan - Mongolia - South Korea - Australia (hopefully stay there for a year) - S America.


PS reason for round the corner is because the world is a big place and I don't know how far I will get and it doesn't sound so daunting B)

Why not organise a send off day/evening, that way you'll feel more pressurised to keep going :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
