Today’s the day! I’m finally off travelling! First stop is Thailand, followed by Singapore, Bali, Malaysia and Dubai.

I still can’t believe I’m going, I don’t think it’s actually hit me yet that I’ll be away by myself for 2 months. I am really excited though and can’t wait to get going!

It’s a completely new experience travelling alone but I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve put a lot of planning into the trip rather than just sorting it out when I get there like a lot of people like to do, just because I know I’ll be able to relax and enjoy myself more if I’ve got a bit of a plan to follow and know what I’m doing. I know there will be times where I’m feeling a bit lonely, and I think I’ve prepared myself for that as much as I could, but having travelled before around Europe it’s given me a lot of confidence knowing I’ll be absolutely fine because you meet so many people along the way that I’ll never really be completely alone.

I got the bus from Norwich to the airport at 1am this morning, and my flight is at 9.30. I’m going to be so tired by the time I get to Bangkok at 6am tomorrow morning (Thai time) considering my last night’s sleep would have been 2 nights before! I can’t really sleep whilst travelling but I’m hoping that eventually my body will be so tired it just has to sleep for a bit on the plane. 

Anyway, soon I’ll be boarding, finally! In typical Emily OCD fashion I’ve booked the same seat number for all of my 12 flights (including layovers, so not as bad as it sounds), so at least I won’t forget where I’m sitting! 

I’ll be updating my blog when I can with everything I get up to. See you in 2 months England!

Love Emily  x
