Slowly slowly

March 21, 2011 § 4 Comments

In the process of trying to recover fragments of not too long ago, I find myself back in the all too familiar process that is travel planning. Although this time the period is only a fraction of what it was a few years back, the complications of booking flights, finding accommodation, and negotiating multi-city stops are none the easier. In fact, I think back on my big trip in 2008-2009 with what I can only describe as great fatigue really, as I sit here in my comfortable living room watching my big screen TV, wondering, how on earth I ever managed to pull it off. Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of what I accomplished, but right this moment, all I want to do is have someone pick me up from the airport, bring me to a nice hotel, have someone take me around on air-conditioned private tours, and take me shopping, damn it. Of course plans always change and the first unexpected bump has occurred even before I’ve left. It turns out I need about a month to get a tourist visa to Brazil, and considering I leave in 2 weeks time, that plan is scratched. Instead of going to Brazil to be received by a friend, I have to go to Chile alone, somehow figure something out over there for 5 days, before reverting to the original plan of Bolivia, Argentina, Mexico and LA/San Francisco. It all sounds way too hectic already. Anyone wanna come along to make things easier?

    I only realised the other day that I officially live outside of New South Wales now. This is the furthest I’ve been away from Sydney and my first time outside of NSW since my arrival to Australia. Feels strange, man.

    You’ll venture further and further, I hope! 🙂

    Cool. A big bummer about the visa, though… same reason why I did not end up in a place called Morocco for my recent holidaying.

    Have fun!

      Funny thing about South America is, my Malaysian passport has finally come in handy as don’t need to pay silly visa fees! Bummer about Morocco.
