to da family dondon!!!!


Do you have a specific area you need a hand in???

Going overseas on your own is always scary for the first time, I was, and I bet every last member of this community has been a little scared of wait awaits them when they get of the plane for the first time.

You need to look at all the possitives of what your about to embark on, what you are going to do will change you life, and your out look of it. New freinds, cultural experiences, and self confidence are some of just a few of the things that will benifit you when you go abroad. My friend, fears aside, you are making a fantastic choice to go on this adventure.

dondon -

there are LOTS of good books out there with tips on traveling solo. also, lots of good info on the internet.

i'm assuming you're going to be staying hostels...? great way to meet people - you don't have to be alone unless you want to.

one tip i've picked up - keep a journal (for many reasons!). when you sit down to write it feels like you're with a friend.

thanks dude, for the words, it still reverberates in the four corner of my heart(huh!! dunno that heart has corners,lol).

ANyway, right at the moment, Im stil thinking if I will book on dormitory roms ,but I guess, I cant stomach it.MAy be I cannot sleep while somebody is buzzing like a train siren while sleepin.lol.

Anyway, my purpose in this adventure, is to really kno wmy purpose in life(sounds morbid, hehehe), yet appreciating God's creation.

In this stage, I appreciate your words dude, and for welcoming me to this community.Without travelpunk, I dunno, if I have the to do these stuffs,but whewww, IM EXCITED!
