My trip starts in Mumbai on January 20th and I'll be in India for about 4 months travelling south down the Malabar Coast before heading north to Sikkim. From there it's on to one of my favourite cities, Varanasi, and if time allows I'll try and fit in a few places I haven't been, such as Lucknow.
I then fly out of Kolkata to Bangkok for a few days R and R and a chance to get visas sorted out. Then its on to Myanmar from where I'll cross back into northern Thailand and explore that area. From there it's on to Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia before once more entering Thailand. This time I'll be seeing the area just north of Bankok and then heading south to laze about on island beaches.
Then its Malaysia,including Penang where I was born, Singapore, Indonesia, Sulawesi and Borneo.
On the last leg I hope to visit the Philippines, China and finally Japan, though I haven't given much thought to this stage as yet.
Well, that's the plan, but plans are there to be changed and who knows what will happen along the way! Wish me luck.
