Around the world…for the 2nd time!
My first round the world trip from 2012-2013 took me to many different countries, travelling continuously for 20 months – an amazing time during which I also met my boyfriend, Mathijs. After that, I worked for a couple of years, but never stopped travelling – as much as my annual vacation days would allow me. Now we want to go on another long trip! From January until April 2018 I will do some „shorter“ trips by myself, from May/June onward Mathijs and I will travel together again. And of course we have lots of ideas for our second world trip already:
What we would like to see (just some examples):
Hoi An – Mekong Delta – Sigiriya – Maldives – Jerusalem – Petra – Wadi Rum – Marovo Lagoon – Tanna Island – Rangiroa – Moorea – Easter Island – Argentina and Chile from North to South – Lake Malawi – Tofo and surroundings – the untouched North of Mozambique – the rock churches of Lalibela – the surreal landscapes of the Danakil desert – my favourite city La Paz -.….
What we would like to do (again, just some examples):
Watch the glowing lava at Mount Yasur – dive at the most spectacular places in the South Pacific – spot bull sharks, tiger sharks, whale sharks, mantas, alpacas, turtles, penguins, cheetahs, humpback whales and many other cool animals – island hop around French Polynesia, from one bounty beach to the next – go on at least 1 multiple day-hike in Patagonia – watch Perito Moreno glacier calving – cheer with a drink with 100s of years old glacier ice – bungee jump – try all vegetarian food available – forget, what time, week day and date it is – learn NOT to plan – learn to be more patient – ….and loads of nice travel pics! 🙂
The tentative master plan:
My separate trips before the actual start:
Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon Stopover in South East Asia, then visit Mathijs‘ family in Australia South Pacific (Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Tonga, French Polynesia)
South America (Bolivia, Chile, Argentina)
Africa (Ethiopia, Mozambique, Malawi)
