Ludicolo Travelling

Travelling! For a gap year, for work, for volunteering, to see the world. Why ever you're doing it, talk about it here!

So I've come the conclusion that I need to spend some time doing something different, something that might give me a different perspective before I embark on a career proper. Since I don't have the travel bug, I was thinking of doing some volunteering. I was having a look at this site, particularly at the idea of teaching somewhere like Fiji, but I wonder if it's worth a good three grand just to get away from the UK and the internet.

I left my house once.

It was awful.

I left Kuno's house once.

He tried to call the police whilst I was gone, so I've had to have him under 24 hour superveillance since.

Oh hey so I already tried this once and it failed horribly. Huzzah!

So yeah I was going to go travelling a bit after my last job but the company I organised with fucked it up and then I decided not to go anywhere and then I got a job so YEAH.

But now, I've booked booked off the first week of November and will be flying out to Iceland! Four nights in a foreign country on my ones, because they say you should do the solo travelling thing at least once. If I like it I can go somewhere else for longer next time and if I hate it I never have to do it ever again. And four nights gives me the buffer of a weekend either side of it.

I've got a few excursions booked but I've left myself some space to see the capital city for myself. I'll be going to see the Northern Lights one night and doing a big tour of all the natural sights another day.

Should be good!


Anyone else going/gone anywhere fun?

I didn't realize how much I wanted and needed to see the world until I got the chance to leave the country for one single week.
