I’ve also been thinking about my long term travel plans. Due to me being of a "certain age" it's either now or never to apply for an Australian working VISA. If I don't get accepted then I’ll just stay in Thailand until my money runs out and return home when the time comes. However, if I am accepted, I’ll be leaving Thailand mid October (just before my birthday) and will be flying straight to Australia where I’ll work and live for a minimum of 6months, but up to a year if all goes well. I’ll use the money I earn in Australia to come back to South East Asia for about a year again. Nothing's certain until I do or don't get the Australian VISA, that’s "IF" I even end up applying for it in the first place. It’s still very much just a thought for now. A possibility, not a certainty.
Returning to Hat-Yai paid off in the end as after studying a map I realized something. I’ve actually inadvertently travelled down the entire west coast of Southern Thailand (Andaman Sea). This gave me an idea. From where I am now, I can travel up the East coast of Southern Thailand (Gulf of Thailand) and make my way to Bangkok. With the possibility of Australia in October, I need to get in gear and start making my way north, otherwise I wont have time to see the rest of Thailand. I now have a plan again.
