Wes' one-year Asia adventure

Wes travel blog
Welcome to my Trip Journal!

Here you will find my personal guided tour of my Asia trek!

I have been planning this trip for several years, so I am truly excited.

How did I come to this monumental choice and why Asia?

First of all, I LOVE to travel. Every time I do, I feel a little more enlightened and a little more liberated. For many years, I have been taking all kinds of various trips, mainly limited to this part of the world, and generally for from several weeks to up to about 3 months, but never more than that. Through it all, I have often wondered what it would be like to travel for a whole year. That's how my dream of a one year trip around the world began.

I was going to just take a year and go see the whole thing. Then I began to realize that world was way to big to see in one year, so I decided to narrow it down to one region. What is the only continent (besides Australia) that I have never visited? Bingo! Asia.

I have mainly travelled to Spanish-speaking regions in an effort to perfect my Spanish language skills. Now that I'm quite fluent, I have an additional, maybe loftier goal: become conversationally fluent in Japanese (which is why more than half my itinerary includes Japan). I have been studying the language and a local university and will enter a language institute in Japan in order to achieve that goal.

That leads me to my other main goal: have fun!

I don't know what lies ahead in this impending adventure, but I do know one thing: it will be interesting!

Feel free to stop by as often as you like and contribute to my message board.
