This trip has been a long time coming. Joe and I first dreamt up our Asian Odyssey, while spending six weeks in India at the end of 2012. It had been a loosely formed plan that hinged entirely on our savings, which we didn’t really take seriously until mid 2015 when we decided that our twenties were leaving us behind and the pressure to settle was fastly encroaching and if we don’t do it now when would we.
January 2016 saw us decide to get married and then preceding months saw the planning of what was the most wonderful wedding and party we have ever experienced. While our wages were split between wedding, living and travel funds it had been hard to envision a date to start our “honeymoon” but 3 weeks post wedding, we have finally set a date of departure and so the mad rush to have everything in its place before we leave begins.
