Thai visa acquired

Without much effort too

snow -2 °C

We acquired out Thai visa quite easily: it really was a matter of bringing the required papers and leaving some money behind. The only slight glitch was that we couldn't give the place where we planned to stay in Thailand, for the simple reason that we haven't booked a hostel yet. We had to fill in something anyway, so had a friend give us the address of the first Bangkok hotel he could find. Turned out to be a five star hotel, but oh well, as long as we have our visa, nobody will know if we ever stayed there or not.
The Indonesian visa will be more complicated as we have no place to stay ánd no flight tickets to show (we plan on hopping over by boat from Maleisia). Will let you know how that goes.

Countdown: 45 days until take off

We both wanted to travel, preferably for an extended period of time and around the world, since we were teenagers. For different reasons we never did. We discussed it at length when we got together and decided that if we had the chance, we would travel through Asia for as long as possible together. And now we have that chance. We saved up enough money for at least half a year of travel and we're willing to work on the road to prolong our trip. We researched the monsoons, malaria and ticket prices and on February the 15th, we finally booked our tickets. If all goes well, we will take off from Budapest Ferihegy airport on April 14 at 8:40. After a stopover on Borispol Airport in Kiev of 2,5 hours, we should arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand on April 15, around 3:30. I'm very, very excited.

Countdown: 56 days until take off.
