Tentative plans...

Well, after much deliberation, I have a rough outline of what I'd like to do after my time in New Zealand. It will begin with a couple months working back in Omaha. This will serve two purposes: To save more money to extend my travels; and to wait for weather in Asia to become a bit more comfortable (less heat, less monsoon). Then, in September, I plan to head to China for a couple months, maybe more. After that, it's likely I'll visit Southeast Asia (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, etc). And I'm strongly considering a working holiday visa to Singapore for six months in 2009. Singapore is a very modern Asian island-state, located at the tip of the Malaysian peninsula. All this is subject to change--I haven't even purchased my plane ticket back to the US yet. (I will be stateside by 27th of June for Paul's San Diego wedding though...and back to Omaha shortly after that).

So that's me, in rough pencil form. I'll begin finalizing plans in the coming months. Rest assured, though, that I will not be returning to the office any time soon. I think restaurants are where I belong for the time being.

I hope you're aware that your return to the States requires a Sunday trip to the Dubliner for yelling-Irish-guy trivia night.

have been lurking on this blog for a while now, as i'm thinking of going to NZ for a working holiday.. didn't realise that singapore even had a working holiday! ah, the things you don't know about your own country. i'm afraid tipping isn't very common nor generous here either.
