Barring any setbacks and leaving of the country, this is what my travels look like this year (roughly).
Now that I know my future and I’ve finally let go of the past, I can focus on one of the most exciting times and live ahead. This has been my dream – to teach everywhere, speak when I want, go to conventions, be my own boss, have a team develop content, teach, and travel the world. Sure, sounds a bit hectic, but inspiring while visiting places that might change who I am for the better is simply life-transforming.
Earlier this year I made a podcast and goal-list to inspire myself to reach higher. Because things got sour and I had to close out a toxic workplace, I had to wait and see what was going to come into my life in terms of micro work, first. Now that it has happened and I’m able to project what’s culminating, I can refocus on what I absolutely LOVE TO DO!
First Travel: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This is going down NEXT WEEK! Spartan Race, meeting with a team member, and a wedding – all within a couple days. Just booked out! Is it going to be possible to get some entrepreneurial work done while I’m there?! Nonetheless, Malindo Air (and lots of blogs to follow) is on the way. Stay tuned!
Second Travel: Ho Chi Mihn, Vietnam
I miss Vietnam and the unbelievable friends I have there. I even met a brilliant Thai speaking national at the airport when were were standing around, incredulously, wondering where the hell our plane was. Vietnamese Airlines for $121 dollars RT?! Pfft, you crazy. In America, you can’t go from Los Angeles to Las Vegas without spending $130 minimum. This is why I emphasize that living in Thailand is so centrally located to everything. 3-4 days in the heart of June!
Third Travel: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Spartan Beast + Trifecta Achieved
This might be the most heartwarming and emotional trip ever! Achieving a goal that I set out to achieve in the early stages of last year has to be claimed! Achieving what’s going to be my first trifecta while going through an unbelievably amount of pain, wanting to give up every second of the way is going to be the pinnacle of it all. The 2005 regional championship race is going to come back when I’m ready to give up, and that’s when the overdrive will takeover. I’m beyond ecstatic.
Fourth Travel: Bali, Indonesia
I HAVE TO go back to the place that almost made me cry when I left (in a good way). The banjo playing “la bamba,” serenading at the entrance of the plane almost reduced me to to bawl mode. From staying at the Sintesa Jimbaran, to meeting a wonderful Australia family at a safari. This was one of those moments that I will cherish forever – but I need to create more memories by going to UBUD.
Fifth Travel: Hong Kong/Taiwan
It’s a hard choice in between the two, but I need to go to uncharted territory once this year. I can’t continue going to the same places. Vietnam and Indonesia was 2016 and Maldives was last year. I have to keep it going.
New Years – Australia?
And, of course, I’ll have to FINALLY do something good for New Years. There’s no better place to go then going back to Australia…..but again, this could or could not happen based on my status here in Thailand.
