Back in September, I spent a good few hours researching and plotting a full route through SouthEast Asia (described here). After hopping from Japan to Korea to China, it would’ve taken me down through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and into Thailand – just in time for Songkran, the Thai New Year celebration.

I also mentioned that I often plan such trips knowing full well that they may never reach fruition – I do it so that I know what options exist, and can make quick, well-informed decisions while on the road.

Well, after careful consideration, I’ve decided to cut my current trip off here. I’ll hang around in China just long enough to witness the Chinese New Year – which falls relatively early this year, on January 26th – before catching a flight home to Los Angeles.

The main reason for doing this is to give myself some time and space to refill my bank accounts and get ahead on several projects which have been backing up little by little over the recent months. Working on the road is a great idea, but it’s tough to sustain when none of the income itself is passive. Some time back at home will provide a nice break, and an opportunity to try and setup a few sources of passive income.

I’m not really sure where things will go from there – settling down, moving back to Japan or China, going to grad school, or continued wandering. I guess only time will tell.

So, to my family and friends, I’ll see you all soon…in less than a month’s time! 🙂
