Well today is the day its all become official! Today I set the alarm to get up on this cold winters day to pick Matty up (a fellow 'amigo' that I'll be making this journey with) and we headed on down to our friend at a flight agency centre to book our tickets to Latin America!

So the idea's to book the cheapest and dodgiest airline possible (just so i can say "I've flown on the dodgiest airline possible") - and yes i admit, some might think I'm crazy! However i think of it as just another interesting experience/adventure. Our mate at the travel agency centre in all her years of working there has never even booked a single flight for someone with these airlines. I wont go naming the airline as of yet, but i can tell you, it was nearly half the price as the traditional Singapore, Malaysian, etc airlines ha ha! So whether we have milk crates to sit on for seats and chickens running around inside or not, I'll find out all in due time...

I have a stop over in Taipei before reaching the final destination L.A. (cheaper then flying to Mexico) and will head straight on down south for a Latin adventure. For now my immediate intentions are to travel as long as possible (without flying) through Central America, the Caribbean & South America, reaching from the U.S. / Mexico border to as far south as Buenos Aires & Rio. In which I'll be then taking off again to meet up with my partner Jasmin somewhere else in the world to find work. I will miss you Jasmin an unimaginable amount, while fulfilling this traveling dream...

For now, this is such an exciting feeling knowing that I'll be back on the road, back to living my life!!

Follow Your Dreams
Hey I bet you never expected me to pop in. Just read the beginning of your adventure and I must admit it brought some tears to my eyes. I think reality set in just how much you really want to go, even though as you were growing up we encouraged you to do anything you put your mind to (you may or may not remember)we will miss you heaps.
To experience life through travelling, I know will be more rewarding for you then any 9 to 5 job, car or house. You have had some of these items through your life but hey! I know you and you like to try and touch on lifes experiences.
Half of me is very excited and envious and the other half....well I'm your Mum so Dad and I will of course worry but we will look forward to your adventures, enjoy. xx

on ya man!
nice one mate, its an incredible feeling that you will only know, life is taking us on paths that it and we choose, our bond is strong and has been formed over many years, both playing video games as kids to experiencing those wild years afte schoo! Our paths will cross many times over the years finally to come to a parrallel when we settle down in adelaide one day, On that 1st day in LA, suck it all in, experience it, step into your experience and try not to step out until you feel it nessasary!

Sit back, listen to the silence and let your soul catch up with itself!*

peace mate, i'll see you soon


* - if you choose to sleep the night at LA airport you wont be able to listen to the silence coz the f**king intercom goes off loud all f**king night! haha
