The Travel Experience Nobody Talks About

I haven’t written a lot about coming home to Singapore after my 2 years of globetrotting. If you follow me on Instagram, chances are that you’ll still see me all over the world. Jumping from mountain tops, riding cable cars and hanging out with animals. But in reality, I’ve finally unpacked, stowed away the backpack and started my internet bookmarks afresh for new places to dream of.

2 Years of Travel in 200 Seconds

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!

 

Closing A Travel Chapter with a Hot-Air Balloon Ride in Cappadocia

 

Returning to Cappadocia and getting to ride in another hot air balloon with Royal Balloon has been an emotional yet reflective experience for me.  I’ve grown and changed so much both as a person and where this travel journey has taken me. Although I did plan my year of ‘escape from my 9-7 corporate life’ to begin in Turkey, I never thought it would come full circle and end here too. From my basket, I looked out over the rising sun in the rose valley, surrounded by colorful hot air balloons. I’ve realized that travel has indeed changed me (as much as I claimed it wouldn’t). I’ve learnt so much in the last 2 years. My whole outlook on life has changed, and I can’t wait to share everything that I’ve learnt about full-time travel and life on the road with you.
