"It is the journey that matters..."

San Francisco, United States

The title is the caption on the back of the t-shirt I'm wearing right now. It's a quote from a noted science fiction author [1] and it seemed an ideal sentiment to summarize my feelings as I get ready to start my Big Asia Tour, 2009.

This will be a very open-ended and spontaneous tour. Except for the first two weeks, I have neither schedule nor itinerary. I have only a general idea of the countries I wish to visit; the specific dates, places, and order of travel will be decided by me on a day to day basis.

The first of my trip will be sailing down the coast of Thailand and Malaysia on this old style clipper ship. Isn't she a beauty!? This will include short trips to Cambodia and Singapore as well. After that, I may visit the following countries: Philippines, Japan, Vietnam, Sri Lanka. But as I said, this is all subject to change. On this trip I expect to do: sailing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba ,diving, sightseeing, trekking, eating, drinking, partying, meeting old friends, making new friends, painting, drawing, writing, talking, laughing, and ... other things :)

I have my little travel laptop (cutest laptop in the world) with me, so I expect to be blogging on a daily basis, and you dear reader, are invited to follow me and share in my adventures! I invite your comments to these blog entries as well (but please don't use my real name -- just address me as "Panini").


[1] Here is the full quote:

"It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey
that matters, in the end.” –-Ursula K. LeGuin

Since you are going to the Philippines, it is a must to go to Boracay, it is a paradise. One of the world's top five beaches (accdg to yahoo, etc)Perfect white sand beaches with crystal clear water, lots of activities: island hopping, bar hopping, shopping, and very cosmopolitan, you get to a bar and meet fun people with different natinalities like koreans, japanese, russians, chinese, european backpackers etc. and don't forget the filipino hosptality and boracay's famous sunset,hehe
