Travel, Trip Planning

My Itinerary for 5 months in Southeast Asia.


It’s almost time to leave the USA for my first ever trip abroad!

Zoom’s route

It’s been a whirlwind of prep work, but the moment is finally here! Getting rid of all my stuff, deciding what I wanted to live on for the next 6 months, moving out of my apartment – it’s all lead to this, the biggest adventure of my life!

We interrupt this blog for a commercial break!

Today we’d like to thank our supporters! Zoom’s friends and family from Ohio and Chicago. Burner friends and family networks. Blog subscribers and fellow travel enthusiasts! I’m so excited to have you along!

Note that this itinerary is just a flexible, inexperienced shot at a plan and is subject to change!

Of course I’ll keep you updated along the way! Click the links for more details on that particular adventure.
