    Hey friends :friends2:

    Just wanted to announce that I quit my job to make a world tour. It was always a dream to travel around the world with no technical toys. I'll take some basic gimmicks with me in case something goes wrong (because I'm alone on this trip) like a Nokia 5500, compass, flashlight and two cameras.

    I did several workouts and I'm totally motivated to do this .. and I'm pretty sure it will be fun. I start in Lhasa [Tibet] (next week).

    So I'm around 6 months (maybe more) definitely not online.

    I wish you guys good luck and the best!

    Best of luck CHEF. I envy you. I would love to travel the world for six months (but I would have to get online during that time).

    Best wishes, chef.
    Wow, half a year! That will be great. I frequently meet travellers doing the same when I travel myself as backpacker. Once I even met the same 2 weeks after in another country.
    The longest time I could so far has been 5 weeks (only).

    I am sure it will change yourself. You'll meet a lot of different people. You'll see life different after it and interacting with different cultures will change your self-awareness.
    IMHO one of the best things in life one can do: to travel.

    Yes keep most of your common stuff away, take only with you what you really need. Soon you'll see anything from a different perspective and with a clear mind without the common thoughts (and habits).
    I'll miss you.
    Have fun and enjoy it. Take care.

    I hope to see you again at MDL when you're back.

    P.S.: Keep your login details at a safe place.I am sure you'll get problems reminding them when you are back, lol.

    Yen. :hug2:

    Any possibility that you can take Bat.1 and lobo11 with you? I'm certain they won't be any distraction.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    And if it develops into one of those "Three leave but only one returns." scenarios. we'll understand. :)
