Juno go round, round, and round!
(And it’s updated in Sep. 07, 2010)
From last year, I met so many great fellow travelers and witnessed tweetup after tweetup. It occurs to me, I could do that, you know. Make my itinerary according to people I want to meet and who let me meet them. And, maybe someone could offer me a couch?
So I call this,
I apologize in advance just in case if you feel bad about I mentioned your name and these random things to do. I didn’t really ask your permissions. So I’m sincerely sorry for that. Also sometimes I only know just a gist of where you are, so please forgive me and correct me if I’m wrong.
So, here we go!
My dream Round the world trip (RTW), I would like to start with Trans Mongolian and Trans Siberian.
.From Incheon, will take a plane to Beijing and take Trans Mongolian. Explore Mongolia and Russia along the way. All the way to Moscow. It would take about a month or a month and a half. Oh it would be fun!! Ride some horse, and other animals out there.
Then fly up to Finland. There’s my friend, Simo. He will offer me a couch, right Simo? Actually this is Simo and his buddy, Kalle’s route when he went back home from a year of life in Korea. He will gladly let me crash his couch, won’t you? I have this wild image of Finland, and I would love to see all. You and Kalle live in different city, right? Guide me!
Finland then move on to Sweden. Up to Norway, and hopefully catch some Northern light. This is the closest way to be near the north poll, so hopefully! In Sweden; I will meet awesome couple, @AsWeTravel . They will know all the cool stuff about Sweden. Will be count on you!
Down to Denmark, and the great UK. Does Denmark really have greatest milk? Well, anyhow Andy, @501places , Darren @TravelRants , Lynne @lynnerosie , Abi @Insidethetravellab , Zoe @quirkytraveller would love to see me, wouldn’t you? We can do a little group tweetup! Hoot!!
New friend Jools @jools_octavius is in Edinburgh or Glasgow . I will let you know when I’m coming!!
From Andy’s blog few months ago, his trip to Scotland and England were just fascinating. I want to do that when I get there.
And some of my friends I met in New Zealand. Matt, Saul and Laura will be happy to meet me after these years. I see your status via Face book but that’s not realistic considering we met a long time ago, right? Can’t wait to meet you all. Saul is almost a celebrity.
France, when I hit Paris, @ParisBuff and @EasyHike101 are going to see me! Pleas have one expensive cup of coffee in front of Eiffel tower. Please, please?
Belgium, hanging out with lovely @Isabellestravel . Promise me to introduce the best Belgium waffle and Belgium chocolate!!
@VelvetEscape in the Netherlands. However I’m not sure he is going to be there when I arrived. He is in all over the world, I tell ya! If you are around, hang out with me in the beach with the air planes.
Germany. Melvin, @TravelDudes . I think we could get along just fine. Also I’ve heard you are a great tour guide! When I meet him (finally!) there’s a lot to talk about in so many subjects. Start with ‘Traveldudes.org’, right? So many to talk about!
@Lozula if you are in Germany in that time, will twit you for sure. If not, let’s meet up in New Zealand like you said!
Now, this beautiful Italy. I wanted to learn Italian but haven’t done yet. Maybe I will start when I get there. Lovely Simon @1Step2theleft and I will have some lovely time at beautiful Italy. Would you do with a bike tour to Rome? Michela @RockyTravel ! Would you like to meet me in somewhere in Italy? Point some great winery out for me!
Mediterranean Sea is one of thing I really expect. I’ve heard weather there is dry and fantastic, and ocean in Croatia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. So definitely Greece, Croatia, and Italy. Oh and since I love Greek food, that should be included. Anyone based on Greece? Would you love to hang out with me?
Slovenia, if @MKL is around. I think you know pretty great place to around, right? I’m counting on you! Frankly I know so little about Slovenia.
Kosovo, hiking with Todd, @ToddVassel . I’ve seen his photo from his hiking, and that is just too beautiful. Take me to one!
Up to Romania, Lori @Travelmoments would love to hang out with me, right? Do you think your husband let me drive one of his remote control plane? 🙂
Rest of Europe, Eastern Europe. I always want to visit Prague, Turkey, and probably I would love rest of Eastern Europe. @Turkeysforlife is an expert of Turkey travel, so I will ask you some advice, cool?
The amazing Africa. Wow Africa. I thought Africa was a country when I was 8 or 9. Teacher wanted us to pick a country and research about that country. And I choose Africa. I’ve read books and everything and she said Africa is not a country. That is a name of continent and I didn’t understand what that was. Anyhow that is my first relationship with Africa. Okay Africa, now it’s time to hangout with me!
Morocco, Algeria, Senegal, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Madagascar, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt. And so many other places in this wonderful continent. I will visit you all. Oh I can hardly wait! Wherever you are, @AcasiaAfrica , please come out and hang out with me! And if you are around Giulia @giuliaccia , meet up with me in Cairo! Or, Italy, that’s fine too.
Then up the Middle East. Frankly I’m little afraid of Middle East. There were so many issues, war, religion and everything. Phew, oh well, I think that is different to travelers? Hope so. We do a lot of projects base on Middle East, and every time people told, they have to spend too much money on security. Have to prepare for random people shoot, fight or kidnap. Hopefully, for travelers that does not apply.
Now Adam @TravelsofAdam is in Middle East, so I could get some advice from you when I’m heading to Middle East, right?
Then back to Asia. Quite weird, since I left from Asia but now it’s time to South East Asia. Start with Burma, then Thailand. If @Eloren @Gotpassport and @OurownPath are still there, let’s hangout! I haven’t met @Gotpassport but I think you guys are really cool. And we ( @OurownPath and I) only met once, but I think we become a good friend since that was our first tweetup, right? Oh and @KevinRevolinski might be there. Kevin is all over the world too, so hard to keep it up!
Daniel @Eloren , you and I have to do some photo shoot!! Let’s do long exposure! Can’t wait! Photography buffs are always my best friends. If you let me of course.
Laos, Vietnam, and Malaysia. In KL, there’s going to be my favorite gal pal, @AgentCikay . I will bring great quality running shoes, so you have to take me all the great food places on your blog. We start with running and then eat, right? And your blogger friends too!
@kennymah , @Malaysiasia you know I’m talking to you all. There are so many things we could do, and we have to do! You know. I’m really looking forward to it!! You know it! I may don’t want to leave because of you.
Philippines and Indonesia. Island hopping. Looking forward to it! Dave @TLWH, if you are still around, let’s hang out! No? You wouldn’t!
Now it’s time to road trip in Australia. I really look forward to do it. Well, everything is but Australia. According to what I’ve read and heard, I will fall in love with this country.Desert, I really want to see, and ocean, surfing, oh and don’t forget the Opera house.
My friends I met few weeks ago, Bryony @Brypie and Paul are going to be there I hope. Let’s do another tour in your city!
Caz, bring your Yellow tail bottles and vegemite out! I will bring wildberry jam. Vegemite is great with jam, did you know? 🙂 @ytravelblog
Drink on the beach, awesome. Looking forward to it!!
Oh and when I hit Sydney, can I join Sydneytraveltribe? Then I can meet all of you at once! Please include me in!
Sorry I thought symbolize Australia as “Yellow Tail” wine, but what can I do, I love this wine! When I do some road trip in Australia, I might buy dozens of bottle of this. But you know what? It has wildness and kangaroo in their picture. So.. It’s Australia, right?
New Zealand. How can I leave you out? I’ve been there already twice, and I explore everywhere but still there are more to see, more to do. I lost my chance to visit Milford Sound last time because of heavy snow storm, and more beach? I bet there are still million things to do, and I will like the most of it.
@BackpackingMatt , @TrailsofAnt , @Kiwitravwriter , and who else? Let’s come out and travel with me!
Oh and fairly new friend Scott, @Adventureskope I will twit you when I’m in town. Hang out with me! 🙂 Want to hear all about your LP gig!
I think @illuminatdtrvlr could be there. If you are, we could be travel mates!
Now it’s time to another grand tour, on my list forever, South America. Homeland of coffee, Mayan, Inca Empire, and all the monuments. I love coffee, but descent coffee is too expensive. Well coffee is generally over priced in Korea. I don’t know why. So I buy coffee bean and make my own. In South America, gorgeous coffee.. hmmmm… Yum!
Not only coffee, I’m really excited to see all of those cultural monuments. It’s almost overwhelming. History always fascinates me and this ‘grand’ history will blow my mind.
Seriously, I want to go every bit of this continent. Maybe skip where it’s too dangerous. I would not know because I’ve never been but from what I’ve heard, some places in South America could be dangerous. For solo-female travelers. Sometimes danger could be overrated but don’t hurt to be safe, right? Oh and I might include Antarctica in. It is my ‘the’ destination, but I’m not sure there will be a tour to South poll in that time. We’ll see.
Now I have few friends in South America too! When I hit Mexico, Earl @WanderingEarl is going to be my company. He even offer me a couch. How sweet of you!
Move on to Brazil, @TravelholicA is going to hang out with me. Sweet! In Brazil, I think I will remind @AndiPerullo ‘s engagement story. So sweet!
America, I already set some plans to meet Leslie @LeslieTravel , Jeremy @Budgettravelsac , Mark @Planetnomad , and Ted @TravelingTed . I will visit each and every of you and we could do some trip to somewhere, like Hawaii? I’m thinking, Chicago to meet Ted, like he said, since Chicago is in the center of the country. I will introduce you to my good friends, Luke and Laurie! They are fascinating.
Then Ted and I go to NY to get Leslie. Then cross all the way to San Francisco. Meet Jeremy, Mark oh and Ashley @NonionsXpickles , and then fly to Hawaii. How’s this? Perfect? Oh and please promise me to visit the world greatest observatory of all, Mauna Kea.
We can convince Gray @Solofriendly to guide us to Vegas. Since she is an expert!Oh and I can’t leave out the capital. So I’m going to twit @Landlopers . According to his articles, he is a master of DC! So, would you? It will be fun!! I bet!
Stephanie @TravelDesigned is in Illinois, so I will twit you before I go. Would you let me visit your town? I will bring great Korean food recipes. I know states in America are huge, and I have no idea how big is Illinois and what’s there. Oh! I can meet Mr.Traveldesigned !
Keith, @travelingsavage said he lives in near Chicago. Do you know what that means? I will visit you! You have to show me around your town! According to your writing style, I think I have a lot to learn from you. Because I like your writing! Have to sneak up when you are writing. haha!! 😀
And team GotSaga @GotSaga @GotsagaLatino @PatriciaVance , wherever you are, I have to meet you! Some of you are my twit-sters, aren’t we?
Andy, @AndiPerullo promised me to show me around the USA. Would you like to be one of the tour group? Head to Hawaii! yay!!
My lovely friends, Meaghan, Camber and Lindsey. If you guys are back to US, then please come out and.. road trip baby! That would be leagen-wait for it-dary!!
Of course there are so many more places I want to visit. So I will do that and then visit you. I don’t want to drag you all around.For starters, I will watch tons of musicals in New York. No one is going to stop me! Well, maybe my wallet will stop me.
Up to Canada, there’s our favorite lady, Janice @Solotraveler . She officially offered me a couch so I will be her house for few days. (Still available?) Maybe we travel solo and together at the same time. Since Janice and I are fan of solo travel, so maybe, why not? But it’s interesting to travel two solo travelers together, right?
Dave and Deb @TheplanetD seem like fantastic people to hang out. You guys are inspiring. I will twit you when I get there.
I believe @Globetrooper is in Montreal. I’ve never met anyone from Montreal, so please inform me about this great place!
If you are there Evelyn @JourneyWoman please have a cup of coffee with me. Because, simply you are so awesome!
Of course, Nova Scotia! Terry @travelbyTerry is going to show me around this beautiful town. Only area I know is BC because of my friend. Since you love my country and all, I think we have a lot to talk about.
Oh and if you are back in town @Ayngelina , will meet you in Toronto! I think you are so fascinating. I’ve read your South America travel stories, but tell me all about it!!
Hope I can catch Northern lights at northern Canada. Expecting to see some amazing forest in Canada.
Some new offers were coming in.
And then, maybe… just maybe I will fly home, to Korea. That simple.
ONLY If I didn’t find any path for me on the road.
How’s my plan? Phew, feel like I just went all those places! Just thinking about it, makes me happy.
And who want to be in, and offer me a couch for my grand ‘Juno-go-round, Tweetup-couchsurfing RTW‘?
Let’s comment away!
