One of the big benefits since moving to Almaty, Kazakhstan, over a year ago is that I am able to take more trips then I normally would. From May, 2010, until November, 2013, I did not travel anywhere except for a short trip to Can Tho in south Vietnam. Since I started working in Almaty a year ago, I have traveled back to Saigon, Vietnam, 4 times (next month will be my fifth round trip back to Vietnam), visited Indonesia (I still got more Indonesia blog posts coming), Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea. As I mentioned in yesterday’s article I will visit India this weekend. I even got to pass through Bangkok, Thailand, last month.
In 2015, I plan to travel less, just flying to Vietnam on holidays with possibly one trip back to India and even Dubai. By Summer, 2015, I plan to only make business trips as I start focusing on doing consulting and IT work as I start to transition away from education again (3-5 years I want to run my own consulting firm as I did back in 2009-2010).
If I do take trips, I want them to be more relaxing, possibly focusing more on meditation or spiritual retreats. Once this happens, you will start seeing a transition of SaigonNezumi.com, I hope. Until then, I will keep posting more and more of my travel photos.
