Less Then A Month Away

27 days to go till we are Scotland bound. Still have a lot of stuff to take care of before we leave. I bought a nice Under Armour spring jacket for the trip but still have a bunch of stuff to buy. I'm hoping to pick up a pack by the end of the week but I have no idea what i'm looking for so hopefully they can help me at the store. Also have to buy a cash belt to make sure my money, passport etc. is safe while were traveling. A camera is another item that I have to buy before we leave. I found one yesterday that shot in HD, 14.2 megapixel and had WiFi capabilities so I could upload right to the net from the camera which I thought was cool. Only problem was that it was a tough screen which didn't work as well as i thought it could (I'm used to the Iphone touch screen that works great). Lastly, it was a Samsung. Not too sure if Samsung cameras are any good but I was hoping to buy a Cannon or a Nikon. Most importantly though we need to get train tickets out of Scotland otherwise they will turn us around and send as back on a plane as soon as we arrive.

Originally we were planning on heading across the Straight of Gibraltar from Spain to Morrocco so we could go across Northern Africa to get over to Egypt but it's looking like thats not the best idea with all the political unrest over there at the moment. We are now thinking a better route would be going through Ukraine to Russia and then through Kazakhastan to get to China and then head south from there. I heard theres a place in either Cambodia or Thailand that you can rent a beach hut for 3$-4$ a night so i'm hoping we can find that and stay there for a bit. Who knows where we'll end up to be honest though. That's the beauty in not having set plans or a specific route to follow.

If anyone has traveled over to Europe. U.K. etc, i'd like to hear of some of the must see places we can check out on our way. It would be kind of cool if this blog could become the go to place if you want to know what to check out, where to stay and where to eat while your over there. So all suggestions are welcome no matter how big or small. Thank you!


  1. hey jeff!!! liking the blog my friend.. good job! hopefully our paths will cross at some point. if you are flying to Thailand and i am still there, you could always crash at mine.... so dont worry about that! How excited are you? Adventure of a life time.... keep up to date with me, and lets meet before we both go, to clear up any paths that might cross.. Dont forget to follow my blog! talk soon!

  2. Thanks Sarah! When will you be in Thailand? I think we will be going through Thailand between July 1st and July 15th. I read that you have a place to stay in Thailand... Where abouts is it?

    I'm gettin pretty pumped with a little bit of nervousness though lol. We will definitely meet up before we leave. We leave April 25th. Do you have a date picked yet?
