About five months ago, my boyfriend and I departed on a year backpacking in Asia. After graduating from university, I left with less of a sense of personal success than I expected and a new uncertainty about my future, realising that my degree in fashion design wasn't really the path I was meant to follow. Since then, my life and potential future has taken so many new twists and turns that I have lost count. I had planned to do this trip a year earlier, not long after finishing university, but life had gotten in the way and opportunities came up that I couldn't say no to. Once I had exhausted those opportunities, we quit our jobs, packed out bags and booked our flights. By taking a break from daily life, I hope to return refreshed with a new perspective on the world. In the next posts, I will backdate my activities in Asia until I catch up with my location now, India. I'm looking forward to re-living the memories of this amazing half year so far, and recapping what I have learnt along the way. I will be happy to expand upon any topics that I touch on, please just leave a comment on the post and I will write about it as soon as possible.
