Fall has started, winter is nipping at our heels, and 2019 is merely 10 weeks away. Put like that, it is just around the corner, not very far off. I have already started making travel plans. Yes, it is essential to have a travel plan from now. To cop the best travel fares, land the best accommodation and secure a spot on your much sought-after adventure activity, now would be the perfect time to start planning. God willing and life be spared, this year’s remaining travel will be completed, and new missions will occur in 2019. Stay tuned to hear what those will be.
So, as I wrap up this year’s commitments, see “Coming to A Place Near You” I am reminded of a promise made to you earlier this year to share video footage of my Southeast Asia trip (catch up in the archive blogs May – July below). This post will fulfill that debt.
When you plan a bespoke itinerary, you always hope to walk away with photos and videos that tell your experience over and over. But, sometimes that is not the case. Many travelers like me are amateur photographers. We capture favorite scenes with our point and shoot cameras or smart phones and other tech devices.
Whichever lens used, oftentimes it is hard to control the environment even though center-stage or an incredible vantage point might be yours. Some of the things you cannot control are: extemporaneous noises, movement, unsteady hands holding the lens, talking neighbors, babies crying, etc. You may see a bit of some of these issues as you watch. However, focus on the clips. You may still be able to vicariously enjoy the scenes as much as I did.
SINGAPORE – Merlion Park (night show of projected light to music)
BALI – Tegallalang (rice terraces)
PHILIPPINES – PALAWAN (indigenous people playing on rudimentary instruments)
KUALA LUMPUR – view from the KL Menara Tower. (Did you catch a glimpse of the Petronas Towers?)
Recounting the holiday experience and selecting the footage from my collection has taken me down memory lane. Indeed, a blast from the past. If you are thinking about taking a break in 2019 and would like a customized itinerary, then look no further. I am your gal – Itinerary Planner.
