It is kind of crazy for me to fathom than 2017 is indeed coming to a close and in less than 48 hours, 2018 is taking over. I definitely deliberated quite a while before even starting this post. Even taking time to read through my year in review for 2016, split into 2 parts even! (Part One / Part Two). It left me feeling in a puddle of fuzzy emotions and I thought it’d be fitting to do one for 2017 as well.

So in 2017 alone, every single big travel related media publication has come up with their version of the same article that we keep clicking over and over again. A list of the…
Today, it will be almost 2 months since I’ve surprised my family at the airport when I landed at Changi International Airport after 2 years of being on the road. (Yes we are the kind of family that goes to the airport for dinners..)
It’s been difficult, to say the least, to concisely put into words what the last 2 years of travel have done for me.
So I’ve put together 40+ countries and 200+ cities worth of highlights in one Epic Travel Video just for you (okay, and a little for the future grand kids as well) narrating the last 24 months of my travels in ~200 seconds.
It took a lot of coffee, EDM music and many power naps.
BUT ITS FINALLY HERE, ENJOY!
Let me know which is your favourite scene!
For those who are interested in all things travel, I’ve put together a digital community on Facebook called Asians Abroad where I will facilitate discussions, chat about all things travel and even find you travel buddies!
See you in the group!
