Belgium - Thaïland

As the site represents quite an overwhelming amount of information i 'll allready introduce myself as I browse through this site for further information.

Well, the idea is pretty straithforward;

I've got it in my mind of going to thaïland.
I honoustly can 't say why, but there it is, Itching. Waiting to be scratched.
So I'll scratch it, I 'll scratch it all the way from Belgium.

But the farthest i 've gone so far is the south of France, which is pretty much at my doorstep.
To me, it looked like just something I 'd need to prepare a bit more than my previous trips
Any preparation would of been an improvement I guess

Anyway, my old man was so kind as to press my face at a map of the world to let me see what I really was thinking of.
I was silent for quite some time, as I really wasn't having an idea how far that trip really is going to be.
I might of looked like this a bit





I 'm still going

Anyway:
Hi there

Welcome to HU

Be sure to join the Belgian HU Communities (link on left) - and suggest getting together sometime soon. You'll meet loads of others interested in travel too.

And get to the HU Travellers Meeting in the UK in June - sorry no Belgium Meeting this year - next year there will be one if all goes well.

enjoy the site!

I went from Belgium to Thailand last year. Read it here: www.nohorizons.net and ask questions where needed.

I've had it resting for a while, but i'm still really looking forward to meeting some of the advanced connaisseurs in the area of intercontinental travel.

So I'm still very insterested in a BBQ or something like that
Although I would turn out to be amazingly enthusiastic about a simple lineup in some back ally bar of low repute (or any repute for that matter)

Who's in?
