The Rest Of The Trip’s Itinerary

Sharon and I have now officially booked and planned the rest of our trip, including our return flight back to the states. In this post, I’ll give you a quick update on our plans for the next few months.

August 12th is our departure date from Korea. Hopefully there will be no issues, as the 12th is exactly our 90th day in Korea – the limit on our tourist Visa. We’ll be flying from Seoul to Singapore with China Southern Airlines.

Our next flight is one month later, also out of Singapore. Our plan for our month back in Southeast Asia is to spend a few days in Singapore and then move on to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After KL the plan is to head to the beach and do as much diving and surfing as possible. We considered trying to get to Bali, Indonesia, but we wanted to avoid another plane flight. So, we’ll instead most likely be hanging out in Peninsular Malaysia. If you happen to have any suggestions on good diving or surfing places around Malaysia, any help would be appreciated!

After our month in Southeast Asia we’ll be spending two weeks on the island of Guam (Sharon’s other 25% ethnicity). One of the cheapest flights we found home happened to have a layover in Guam. After talking with Continental, we found out for an extra $100 we could have a 2-week “layover” there. That was a no-brainer.

September 25th we fly from Guam -> Hawaii -> SF - > Seattle where we somehow land only 2 hours later than we departed (the international date line can be trippy). We fly into Seattle, for Sharon’s cousin/best friend/LAC #1 Fan’s wedding. I’m also excited, as this will be my first time in Seattle.

After Seattle, we’ll be spending the next few months in the states. There may be a trip to the east coast, but primarily we’ll be spending time with friends and family in California.

After the New Year, we’re still debating what’s next. One of the leading ideas is to head back to Korea to teach for a year. By doing so we’d be able to save money again and also learn a lot more Korean. Regardless of what we choose, I don’t think our Life After Cubes adventure is coming to an end quite yet.

P.S. It’s pretty hard to believe, but this is our 100th post. Time for a mini-party.

Be awesome and help us share:

  1. i’M SO EXCITED TOO!!!!! Woo hoo!!! Tell me how singapore is…. I told sharon it could be a place we move to! haha We’ll see! I can’t wait to see you guys! 3 more months today! I wonder how many comments I have… just under 100 I assume :D

  2. I once spent a few days in Pangkor Laut. I’m not sure about the spelling, but if you want to chill for a few days, it’s really, really nice there. It’s off the west coast of Malaysia. They knew about it in Kuala Lumpur when I was staying there.

    You’ll love Singapore. Fun place. It’s been fun reading your blog :)

  3. Holly - I’ve heard Singapore is a really cool place, that’d be pretty exciting if you moved there. And yes, I would assume about 100 comments as well :-) .

    Carmen - Awesome, thanks for the suggestion, we’ll definitely look into it. Glad you enjoy the blog!

  4. Wow your experience is really amazing, I’m an Asian but I even did not visit so many countries around my country Taiwan. Hope you will have the chance to visit Taiwan next year when you come back to Asia! I saw Taiwan in your initial itinerary but it’s a pity you did not travel here!

  5. Hi William,

    Thanks for visiting and the comment, really appreciate it! Taiwan will definitely be on our itinerary the next time we’re here. We really wanted to visit, but there are just too many places to see and so we decided to see it the next time we’re here. I’ve heard great things!
