The “backup” Plan

Its been a while now since my trip to Nepal back in April and I am hungry for another adventure .. So I’ve  been planning my next trip but it just never get easier especially when new things come up that you need to put into consideration..

So where  will my next journey be? to be honest I haven’t mad my decision yet .. there are the following factors to consider:

Time – when and how long? since I only have few days of vacation left this year it’ll probably be sometimes early next year .. it would be smart to find a holiday and attach few vacation days to save my vacation days for other trips … Although I am also considering going all the way and take all my 30 days vacation days for 2011 plus the 15 days unpaid leaves and just cruise around the world for 45days !

Budget – money is a concern since I am trying to save some for something else in mind Inshallah … so I have to plan wisely .. since there is so much that I want to see in this beautiful world of ours .. I thought of concentrating on the less expensive destinations .. so that would be somewhere in Asia .. I realized that I can see about 10 countries in Asia (excluding japan) compared to maybe 2 or 3 somewhere else for a similar budget!

Where – well this is mostly depending on the time and budget .. but I am thinking either diversity (more countries) or beach destinations since its been a while ,I’ve been thinking mountains, camping, and cold weather mostly so am ready to switch ..a yearning to visit my university and home away form home might throw things off!

Type – anything goes .. It could be cultural, adventure, relaxation, meditation, photography, fun,work, volunteer or a bit of everything..

This has been part of my agenda lately, planning my trip, but in our life and crazy world anything goes …

  4. China is a fine place for spring. Our charity trip of 15 days from Calgary (Canada) to Beijing then to Guilin, Guangxi (China) this spring was 570 KD each person. If we flew from Kuwait, the cost would have been 420KD, including airfare, transportation (train and bus), meals and park/museum entrance fee, except souvenirs. This was based on shared accommodation and we were saving each penny, as all savings went to the orphanage. I like a trip with purpose.
    India is a great place – never been there. I heard that the return ticket to Mumbai is only 100 KD (Fahaheel travel agent). How about Maldives? Beaches there looks nice on the commercial.
