the random de-tour to thailand last week

Posted by mermaidnz

i got to have a trial backpacking trip to bangkok last week,which was..uh…interesting. i learnt to choose my travel partners well, travelling with people who are usually accoustomed to traveling in a package tour is an odd thing when your an independant traveller. good fun tho :) even tho we stayed in a hotel (groan) since there was no hairdryer i learnt very soon what condition my backpacker hair wll be in when i make it back to civilization…should be a mission to NOT obtain dreadlocks haha

today we booked our first flights- Brisbane to Osaka. got a sweet deal-saved $700!! we got one way for $75 each plus taxes…so really it was $250 each, but thats still fucking awesome! w00p!  we also got snow gear- two pairs of pants and a jacket-for the same price as a single jacket! SCORE!

ive tweeked the trip a bit more too, thrown in more days for Nepal and Sapporo, and jiggled a few days from Goa and Mumbai to Kerela and surrounds. i think ive added alot more to the budget too. just gotta hope i can save that much!!

im now looking at 14K for 2 people over 4 months in japan,china,nepal,india and egypt.not including flights. scary!!
