We thought we had some takers but they've decided to stay in Cambodia so now we're offering this up ...

Wanting to find the Utopian life. Beer find for repliers;)

Posted by BellsCinnamon on 3/11/2008 at 18:26

I'm landing in Thailand the first of May next year. This is the beginning of a long trip for me.

I might do a few sailing courses since I might try to get a job on a boat when I’m bankrupted. Besides that, I got no plans. Then my questions start: I’m thinking of exploring Asia, before I maybe go down to Australia or/ and South America. The whole idea with this is to stay abroad ...
