May 11 to June 15 - Thailand: Bangkok, Sukhothai, Chiang Mai, Pai, Bangkok, Ko Tao, Ko Pangan, Ko Samui, Krabi, Ko Phiphi, Phuket
June 16 to July 3 - Malaysia: Georgetown, Penang, Langkawi, Perhentian Islands, Cameron Highlands, Kuala Lumpur
According to our Southeast Asian itinerary, around this time, we should still be in the Southern islands of Thailand.
But we're not.
If you've been following our posts on Facebook and our location updates on the blog, you're aware that we're currently scheming in Bangkok. Scheming? You heard it right, we're putting together a BIG trip.
That means, yes Malaysia. The rumors are true. We're ditching you.
You were so attractive to us in the beginning. We craved for your food and dreamed of your landscapes. We really wanted things to work out between us, even for just one month. But the best laid plans often go astray. And that's exactly what happened. We've gone astray, into the arms of another. It all happened so fast, really. But this is what went on in the last few days:
The Sole Sisters are Going to Myanmar! from Sole Sisters on Vimeo.
So there you have it guys, we've answered your question. Although it isn't as major as birth announcements. Instead of spending a month in Malaysia, we will be flying out to Myanmar instead. We will be traveling from June 4 until July 1.
That means the Sole Sisters will be OUT for 28 days.
We will have no access to the internet, phones or the outside world. But we will definitely have some scheduled posts during this time. While we're gone, please take the time to go through our archives and leave us a comment or 2.
Here's our plan for the remaining 2 months (unless we change our minds again):
June 4 to July 1 - Myanmar: Rangoon, Mandalay, Inla Lake, Bagan
July 1 to July 3 - Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur
July 4 to July 17 - Indonesia: Bali, Lombok, Gili Islands
This is by far, the most scary-awesome adventure we're going to embark on in this trip. But we also know we have to do the thing that freaks us out. We're not out to prove anything, we simply have to experience Myanmar and see things with our own eyes.
It will be hard for us to be away but we know you will support us on this journey.
