G´day people!! I thought I should explained what I´m doing or better what I´m gonna do for the next 10 months.
Ok, first of all I´m Simon, I´m 23 and I come from Colombia.
I´ve being working in Spain for the last 13 month in order to earn the money for my trip.
´Cause I love to travell, I love new experinces and I had thought of travelling around the world for the last 5 years.
My trip will start on the 30th of September 2006.
On the 30th I´ll take the ferry at 13:00 from Ibiza and will arrive in Barcelona at 21:30. I´ll then stay in Barcelona for two nights and on the 3rd of October at 03:00 I´ll take a flight to Tel Aviv, Israel.
Then after that the route is uncertain. There are some places I would like to go and see, but almost everything will be decided on the road. In Israel I think I´ll stay in Tel Aviv for a couple of days, I´ll go to Jerusalem, Masada, and the Dead Sea.
I got in contact with a guy from Israel that Aoife and I met in Prague on May 2005, and we´ll probably meet. I also have a friend from Palestine, who used to work with me in Germany, and I might visit him as well.
Then I want to go to Egypt! Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, The Valley of the Kings, the Pyramids, the Nile!! Some diving in the Red Sea? YEAH!!!
After Egypt I don´t have a clue. I want to fly to India and from then on, all or almost everything by land. Of course there will be places where I can´t enter (e.g. Kingdom of Butan) or some that are very difficult, so I´ll fly or try to get around them. I would like to make it to the Philippines, “having” then to cross almost all Asia (Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong and China jajaja )
Then comes the flying part. I would like to fly to Australia and New Zealand. I´ll probably stay only the necesary or just a very short time, because of the high prices, and then I´ll fly again to Chile.
Once in South America, I´ll go to Chile, Argentina (probably stay some time there with my sister and godson =) ), Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and then at last but not least my beloved Colombia, that I´ll try to have with/on me in form of a hat (Sombrero Vueltiado) for the whole trip.
This is my journey, this will be me for the next 10 month, un sombrero a camera and a bag, this is me making my dream come true.
Now you know what I´ve being doing for the last years, now you know what I´ll do for the next one.
The journey ends in Colombia in August 2007,
then, is time to get back to college, glups!
