Our Asian Stomping Ground details the adventures of a couple of ‘farangs’ (white people) planning their journey, and travelling rough around Asia for (at least) seven months.
The goal of this journey is to live simply, explore deeply, learn wisely, eat wholey, thrive on adventure and change, and most of all – not be tourists, but instead travellers.
Daily life will be simplistic and luxuries will be few, but it will always be a fulfilling experience. The backpacker’s lifestyle will become the ‘norm’, and instead of so often taking the things for granted, we hope to realise more fully; to understand and appreciate the absolute wealth that we have in so many ways.
Culture, history, architecture, people, lifestyle, tradition and food are the main interests of this trip – to see parts of the world so rich and different to our routine 9 to 5 lifestyle back home.
This trip is going to teach us so much. Not just about the world, but about ourselves and the way we view things and handle situations, deal with difficultues, stressors, exctitements, dissappointments, fears, successes, people, and life. We understand there are so many exciting prospects ahead, but also challenges to be faced in the coming months.
There are promises we must make to look out for one another, work together with each other, and most of all, make the most of every moment of this big, big journey.
For us, travelling is one of the most important things in this life – it opens your eyes to the world, to life, to experience, to people, to adventure, to light, to sound, to smell, to taste, to love, and to more than you and I can even begin to imagine.
Come with us as we make Asia our home.
