We wanted to start in India. But because of
stupid bureaucracy and politics my father and grandparent’s connections to Pakistan (as in, they’ve previously held Pakistani passports), getting a visa for India for someone who is linked to Pakistan, despite being a British Citizen and have never lived anywhere else, is like trying to get blood out of a stone. So that was that.
BUT wait a minute, what’s even better, a bite sized country just below with rich food, colours, vibrant people and great tea? SRI LANKA baby!
So we head there on 14 January. And then from February to end of April we’ll be in South East Asia travelling though Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia. Then some Thai islands. Like this hopefully….
Then Sydney some of Australia where we’ll spend up to 6 months as Ben will hopefully have some work to do there. Finishing off with Indonesia and Malaysia.
It won’t be that easy. Remember we have a toddler.
