Sharing my own story here:
It is always my goal to staying long term in overseas.
It is not because I do not like my homeland, somehow I just tend to see, explore and experience new and different stuff in overseas.
Ever since young, I used to have this passion (even till today) and I always shared with my close friends that I want to find a job in overseas, even just going to the neighbouring country Singapore is also Ok for me… you could see how desperate I am to stay abroad for a long term.
I thought a lot of ways to do make it happen.I tried to apply working holidays to New Zealand on 2017 and it failed. I was upset a while and decided instead of continuing to wait for another opportunity, why not I try to find out other ways to achieve my dream.
Hence it started my research where should I go…where can I travel cheap? I did a lot of online research and consult my friends who have done that before. After everything getting ready, I just tendered my resignation letter to my previous employer without any hesitation.
There how it started my almost 4 months solo trip to Indo-China aka Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand in 2017.
Travelling alone indeed brought me a lot of interesting stories.I still remember Doha, Qatar was the first solo trip that I have ever done. I will share it more in my next new post for “Qatar“ about what happened over there and what had I done with Arabs. Another story about my solo “Japan” trip where I have met a crazy couchsurfer and what crazy stuff I have done over there. Stay tuned for my new posts!
To be frank,traveling alone is not as scary as what you thought.If you are not confident enough to go abroad alone at the moment, try to test yourself in your own country first. Then slowly to those countries which are safe to travel alone. I could say that I could go anywhere and wherever I like now.(by proper preparation) If I could make it, why not you?
