A Travellerspoint blog

Pre-trip

So I am heading of on a backpacking adventure in 6 days. I was talking to a friend yesterday who mentioned that I didn't seem like I was all that excited about my pending departure. Specifically, one week out from departure, the expectation is that I shouldn't be able to stop talking about my plans and how exciting it all is. He is right, I probably haven't been doing this. I think the reason for this is that my plans are just so open and so my expectations are not low, just kind of blank which I think might be a good thing. I don't have a lot to talk about if I don't have plans.

Plus I have been quite pre-occupied with getting my vaccinations organised (come at me diseases for I am VacMan) and finding a tenant for my apartment.

So my brief plans to date are:
1. Kuala Lumpur - Watch a formula 1 race (a common theme for this blog over the coming months)
2. Dubai - Learn to snowboard. See big tower. See desert.
3. Istanbul - See Istanbul

I am sure I will flesh these out a little bit over the next few weeks. Particularly Istanbul, as I would like to stay there for a few weeks I think. After Istanbul my plans are very open but I am thinking that I will catch a train in to Greece. Alternatively I could check out some other areas of Turkey. I will make some decisions on this front once I am in the country.

I hope to make another post just prior to departure which will be on or around the 25th of March.
