I’m leaving for some Asian countries in a few days where I’ll spend the better part of two months visiting a whole lot of places I’ve never been before. In fact it will be my 1st foreign trip.

Believe it or not, despite one year of traveling and having visited almost India, I still get a bit of anxiety before I visit someplace new.

It isn’t the same sort of rush I had when I first started out, but there is definitely feeling you have before you visit somewhere new.

What should I do first? What’s step two? Will everything work out? Is there a best route to take? There’s a lot to think about! Your list of things to do can seem endless.

Let’s have a look.
