Long time no see

If you have been a follower of my blog, you’re probably wondering where I disappeared. Well, after having spent a chunk of my savings on a two-month trip to USA earlier this year, I got back into the saddle and took up a job, so as to collect the funds to be able to travel once again. Sometimes it almost feels like I make a living just to travel even though I like what I do, resulting in what is now a continuous cycle; like means to an end. And just like Phoebe once said on Friends “There’s dancing in my head”, for me, “There’s travelling in my head”. Okay, dancing is in there too. More like a mix, like doing the flamenco in Spain or belly dancing in Turkey. However, armchair travel isn't good enough for me. I need the real thing. That feeling of complete liberation; that urge of doing something stupid and yet relishing every moment of it.

So, even though I haven’t written a post in a while, I’m constantly thinking of where to head to next. And the list is endless. There’s Iceland to see the glaciers, Sweden for the Ice Hotel, and, of course, the northern lights, Cappadocia in Turkey to see the fairy chimneys, Spain to do the flamenco and salsa (both of which I've only managed to learn the first levels of), Germany for the Christmas markets, and many, many more. But for now, I have to satiate my appetite with the hope of getting time off to escape into my travel fantasy. However, you on the other hand can look forward to many posts to come, updating you on the goings-on of the travel world. From news updates to travelogues, there is a lot to come.

Until then, à bientôt
