Hi there. First post in 2014.
Yups, it’s been ages since I last wrote anything here. I returned to my hometown for good now, so seem like I have nobody to tell story online anymore. Just recently when I received the notification to renew my domain, I was actually hesitating to decide whether I should continue or just close this blog for good as well.
But then, a little re-evaluation brings me to the final call. *ding*
My travelling life isn’t done yet. No, N.E.V.E.R!
Just because I am giving myself a year stay home holiday, that doesn’t mean that my passion for travel is over. I am going to leave again some fine day in the future to create more stories to be told. Until that day come, I can still plan in advance.
Yess… Guess I still have to continue mumbling once in a while here for another year. Haha
And the truth is… My first solo travel was a mess. I do plan the basic things like places to visit, budgets, accommodation and flights, but that alone wasn’t enough. Big time.
There was this one time when I went to Jeju-do, I have no plan whatsoever, so I just stay at the guesthouse lobby for the whole day doing nothing but people watching. The funny part comes when the new guest actually thought I was one of the staff there so they start asking a lot of questions to this clueless girl.. haha.. Such a wonderful memories..
Still, looking back at my photos, I noticed too many places I forgot to visit. I suddenly remember too many things I wanted to try. Seriously too many of them.. Well, I did come back home smiling proud that time, but as time goes by, that itsy bitsy tiny little regrets slowly come knocking. Since first timer can’t always be good, I can live with that tiny regrets, but I cannot and will never let that happen again.
So, for future reference and convenience, perhaps a little more detail plan might help smoothes my future trip.. I always have this few places in mind that I really want and must visit at least once in my life but I am terribly suck in planning. I always prefer to go with the flow, yet I am only good doing very last minute work. That isn’t right. Since I already have the intention to change that habit but financially broke to start travelling around the world for real, I finally decided to start planning my first round-the-world virtual trips here.
Sad, but… I dream big, I know.
For now, I might still be..
Dreaming the dream.
Planning the dream.
But soon, I am pretty sure I will certainly be able to…
Live the dream.
Happy dreaming Ann,
And to all of you too.
