Getting Ready

5 Weeks to Go!

This is our first blog about our year long travel in South East Asia. Here is some quick and brief background information about us. My girlfriend and I decided to take a year off from work so we could get out of our routines, spend time together and explore new places. We made the decision to both leave our jobs for 12 months so we can travel around South East Asia for a year. The trip is going to start in Indonesia in June.

So with that said, it's starting to get close now. With only 5 weeks to go, the days and nights are getting booked up pretty quickly; with so much going on, it’s really pretty fun. But we also need to finish up our planning over the next couple of weeks; mainly finding a good deal on a storage unit and moving of our stuff into it, as well as the necessary paperwork for a 60-day Indonesian visa. The visa process is really making us do a lot more planning than we initially wanted to do. We need to show our onward travel out of the country, this means figuring out to and from where we're going. This isn't nearly as easy as it sounds, especially since Indonesia is so big and there's so much to see. But we aren't really complaining, this is a pretty cool problem to have!
