Having worked so long and so hard in Vietnam, working over 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, and 4 hours on the other day, for the last 6 months, I decided we needed a well deserved holiday. One that might last a little while in fact!
The majority of our main group of friends in Hanoi had slowly started to leave, and now, it was our turn to say Goodbye!
My housemates, best friends and boyfriend (Luke, Winnie, and Brendan) already left on the 3rd February, and I moved out of our house and into a hostel for a few days after. I had to complete my contracts which finished just as TET Holiday was about to start, and wanting desperately not to be there for that period, I booked my flight out for the following day.
I decided I would go to Thailand, meet a friend who was living in Krabi, and then meet Brendan a week later in Koh Phangang. Here we would stay for 5 days, before heading to India.
India, is a place I admit never really interested me too much to visit. But the truth is, I knew nothing about it, until meeting people who had great stories to tell. And so, I became fascinated with the idea of going, and we decided that this would be where we would travel to, spend all our money, however long that will take, and then either head to Burma before the monsoon season, or, if we are too poor or too late, head back to Vietnam, where we have a little more money, and do a road trip around the country by motorbike.
I am keeping this blog, which I have been terrible at keeping up to date with, mainly as a diary, which I can read any time, but everyone is more than welcome to read and see what we get up to, where we go, the ups and downs we might have, the trouble we might get into! Who knows? We might as well live our life while we can, before we all have too many commitments which will inevitably take over our lives in no time at all.
