There’s been some hard decision-making going on my end, but I’m finally kicking off my travels this year with a minor bang.
Like I told you in the beginning with my blog, outlining the possible scenarios of traveling….it’s now evident that I will do a small travel at this juncture of the year, basically due to the fact that work is fluctuating like crazy at the moment.
Since I got some excellent feedback with crazy jobs, big projects and not quitting my main job (fully), I decided to go through with it.
I stated that I would be completing the trifecta this year in Spartan: sprint, super and beast being the races I would need to compete in to obtain that unique medal.
So, if I can take a pre-workout with the sprint in Malaysia/Singapore come March/April, compete in the Super with a massive team in May, and top if off with the Beast in Australia come November = WIN!
Now that I’ll be on a visa that enables me to travel every 2-3 months, I have even more opportunities to visit the likes of Jakarta, Bali (against), and hopefully fulfill that fantasy of doing a Tedx in Morocco later on this year.
Airlines going to and from both KL and Singapore are infamous. Air Asia, being a low-budget airline, forces passengers to pay for extra luggage. Not only that, this airport is no longer in the vicinity where I live. I would have to trek to northern Bangkok, stay at a hotel in the weeeee hours of the morning, then check in at 5:30am. That’s a pain in the ass. Furthermore, I have to pay for luggage and fly to the dog-house (KLIA 2 – the airport that smells like URINE – LOL).
If I go to Singapore, I can fly with scoot, who’s known for cancelling flights (like Australia’s Tiger Asia). I get free baggage, but I might not get there. Plane tickets are around the same cost….but Singapore’s hotels are more expensive, and the day of the race requires me taking a train and a cable car to Sentosa Island, something I seriously don’t want to do after a race.
So with the ridiculous but manageable problems, I decided to make a podcast that was just about everywhere in terms of information and throwing my arms in the air.
