Where am I going?
Well, over the next few years I’m going to be travelling to different areas all over the world!
In 2017 from the months of March – September, most of my time will be spent in Europe and South-East Asia. This is where I’ve most wanted to travel to and experience for a long time now. I’m going to be exploring Europe firstly, then Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, China and Malaysia. Possibly Cambodia during my time in Thailand and possibly Malaysia depending on what the weather will be like there at the time.
Then September time, I plan to spend a week in one caribbean island before returning home to Burton-Upon-Trent, England. I plan then to work for 3 months till Christmas 2017 and then in the new year, put that backpack back on my back (That’s actually hard to say, lol) and go exploring again. Maybe Africa. Maybe The Americas. Maybe Europe. I just dont know yet. I’ll decide at the time.
So, There’s only 2 months to go now before I board my first ever flight, from London to Spain, Andalusia to begin my 6 month trip all over Europe and Asia!
People are asking me, What are you taking with you? and How are you taking it?
Well, I’m going backpacking so everything I take will be in the backpack which I’ve just ordered . I will also have a smaller day bag for day trips. So, below is my personal kit list ahead of my 6 month trip to Europe by campervan.
- Main Rucksack
- Day Bag
- Sleeping Bag
- Mobile Phone & Camera with Bag
- Trekking Shoes/Trainers
- Clothes – 3 Long sleeved Shirts, 2 T-Shirts, 2 Trousers for trekking, 1 Chino, 1 Jeans, 7 Boxers, 7 pairs of Socks, Rain Coat, Hat, Beachwear.
- Sunglasses & Sun Cream
- Toiletries – Bog Roll, Toothbrush & paste, Anti-Perspirant, Shampoo, Quick-Drying Travel Towels, Travel Wash, Biological Soap
- Medical Kit
- Mosquito Repellent 50% and higher Deet
- Travel Adapter ( Worldwide)
- Waterproof Money & Document Belt
- Small Combination Locks
- Water Bottle
- Pocket Knife
So that’s my kit list. As a whole, I’ll try to pack as light as possible because anything I need, I can buy out there. Plus I’m going to need space for souvenirs that I may buy.
2 months to go now and I’ve only ticked a few of the items off this list. I’ve also booked my remaining vaccinations for Rabies and everything. Some people have said that you don’t need them but personally, I’d rather be safe than sorry! I’ve also got Visas for Vietnam & China to sort out. So little time, so much to do…I´M ALREADY READY HAHA!!!
I´ve also have thought about my transportation way all over the place. For example how will I move in China with all those big ditances and with probably not information in english? Wel.. As I did with Spain I have a list of possible "bed options" and "campervans" or train (for big distances).
Here are some example (I do not want to show all the list, which is huge) of my travel list options:
- Spain: Caracolvan
- France: 69campers
- Germany: DRM
- Norway: Nordiccampers
- Turkey: Letsgocamper
- Vietnam: Wickedcampers
- China: Motorhome-China
Those are just some examples, but as you`ll know Il bbe in lots more countries and places and not always by campervan, but it´ been always my first option.
Any advice? Do you know any other camper van company better in those countries? Anyway I have seen more than one option for any single country.
