Travel plans 2013

I've been thinking a lot lately, about traveling.  For 3 years I was immersed in an MBA program that I completed, earlier, last year.  The program, overall, wasn't too strenuous but, it kept my focus primarily on academics.  After I wrapped that up, I traveled to Africa, Nicaragua, and Japan but, was still in that mode.  Towards the end of last year, my right brain really began to kick in, and I began toying with art and ideas of my next adventure.

I hoped to travel to Nica this month to assess a health center in Chinandega, to formulate a plan to return with additional volunteers, but alas, with all of the recent activities at my job (which I absolutely love!), I had to postpone the trip.

I plan to travel to Nica sometime this summer, for a week, when the waves are looking good =) and hope to continue with my plans to assess the Nica health care system and provide some sort of support in the future.

As for my "big" travel plans, I have a coworker who traveled to Nepal to hike to the Everest Base Camp.  She shared her itinerary and I researched (looking at the pretty pictures on Google) Nepal, and since then, I haven't shaken my thoughts of traveling to Nepal.  Recently, a friend mentioned her plans to finally travel to Vietnam to cave spelunk.  A few Google images of the Son Doong cave(s) and I was blown away!  If anyone is planning to travel to Nepal and/or Vietnam in August/September/October, let me know!  =)

During my research, one thing led to another and another and another and soon, I stumbled upon an inspiring blog by a fellow soul wanderer, Anna.  Her blog is here.

After reading her blog, I'm all the more excited to travel this year.  Her posts provide, not only her experiences, but a step by step of how she traveled, many of the questions that I would ask.  Aside from her posts detailing the various places she experienced, I do recommend her posts located under Inspiration and Travel Tips.   It's great to travel to distant places but, I agree with her, the journey to improve  and enlighten yourself is far more valuable.

I'm going.  Somewhere.  Somehow.  To live life, that is!
