A Travellerspoint blog

Random Musings

sunny 33 °C
View South East Asia on suzebert's travel map.

As we wind down toward heading home I began to think of the number of weeks we will have travelled for and the number of UNESCO sites we've visited and so on as well as the things we'll miss and the ones we won't, so I thought I'd blog about it, interesting huh?

Things we will miss when we're back home:
The heat (but maybe not the immense sweats)
The lack of work and the resulting ability for plenty of naps :)
Cheap living: beer that costs €1.50 and a massage for €4
Doing/experiencing something new everyday
The food!
The smiles
The colours - everything is brighter in the sunshine
Random Asian craziness (e.g. a donut selling scooter below)


Things we won't miss:
Airports/bus & train stations
The inability to flush your toilet paper
Using bottled water to brush our teeth
The constant sell
Living out of a bag
Mosquitos and the DEET and the poxy Doxy that goes with them

The Numbers

Weeks travelled: 27 weeks and 6 days (doesn't sound like a lot does it?)
Countries visited: 6
Passport stamps: 24
UNESCO Heritage sites: 9 (Sukothai, Luang Prabang, Georgetown, Anuradhapura, Sigirya, Kandy, Galle, Mulu National Park, Melaka)
Flights: 25 (quite a large carbon footprint I must admit)
Items lost (so far): 1 camera and 1 ATM card (we still have a week to go I hope I don't jinx it)
Average weight of packs: Will 14kg Suze 18kg (chivalry's dead or I just carry too much crap)
Tubs of tiger balm: 3
Bottles of DEET: 8
Books read: 20

Too many to count - the number of times we've been offered a tuk-tuk and a suit; mosquito bites

And the big one...

By the time we arrive back in Dublin we will have travelled: 42,427km/26,364m
