August 5th 2018 we'll leave Belgium for our 1-year-honeymoon.
Where will you go?
Asia and Oceania.
Do you plan everything in advance?
Hell no. Yentl can't even decide which socks he will be wearing tomorrow.
But you must have some plan, right?
Yup! The first 3 countries will be Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India. Probably we'll book our plane tickets for these 3 countries already. Why? Because the Maldives are crazy expensive and we don't want to come home early. So if we plan our stay in the Maldives a bit, we'll be able to save a lot of money 🙂
After India we'll go to the Andaman islands (part of India too) and from there on we'll go to Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam or Laos. The order of these countries will be depending on the prices of the plane tickets.
Around the 5th of February 2019 we might pay China a visit to celebrate the Chinese New Year there. Afterwards we'll head south towards Indonesia (Bali is high on Katrijn's bucket list 😉 ), Singapore, Timor, …
And then finally we'll head east towards Australia and New Zealand (and probably some islands floating around these two countries).
If (yes mom, only if) we have time left, we might pay some Southern American countries a visit.
Will you work during your trip or how will you pay for this trip?
Normally we won't work on our trip. We'll try to stick to a daily budget. We haven't decided on how much this will be yet, but we will soon. We both started saving money for traveling when we were younger and we kept doing this so we'll make good use of these savings now.
