Like I said, when you get the hang of it, you’re unstoppable. And I am. Leaving for Bangkok on the 24th of March, destination to be decided on the spot. Only for two weeks and it’s totally against my current budgetary principles. So let’s just call a spade a spade: I am going do some field research. Because I have to practice travelling on a budget… like really travelling on a budget… at least that’s my excuse for packing my backpack again (barely two months after I came back from my last trip to Thailand & Laos).

During my previous backpack trips I wasn’t really travelling on a budget. Of course I told the guesthouse owners I was, to get a discount…if only a minor one. Because generally it’s still very cheap-to-sleep in Asia, but it’s just because the thrill of it. With a friendly smile, a good attitude and a little blinking with my gorgeous blue eyes (oh no… that doesn’t really work in Asia), it has always been possible to get a discount. But I didn’t really need it. Because for the past years I have done some freelance work, next to my fulltime job as a consultant. The earnings of these freelance activities were quite high (and it actually gave me more pleasure than my full time job did), so this allowed me to make all these trips to distant destinations.. But because it was also the time of the year for me to get away from corporate life (and the winter blues) and enjoy the things I really wanted, I’ve always told myself: don’t pare too much. Just enjoy, enjoy to the max! I am here anyway, so why not enjoy it to the fullest…

Today I managed to buy a ticket to Bangkok for a mere € 450 (for all the jealous ones out there: yes you can, too!!! http://www.thailandtravel.nl. They’ve got some really interesting deals now and then). In this case, I’m flying with Jetair Fly, departure from Bruxelles and only a quick stop in Phuket on the way there (direct flight back). Almost too good to be true…almost. I realize it does look like a totally irrational decision…or in fact it is a totally irrational decision. But a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I’m following my heart yet again… The truth is: I have to go see about a boy 🙂
