Our plan in short

Well, we have just been to Marina’s 50th birthday, great food, lots to drink and good company. Thanks Marina and Bob.
I had some mails from people asking how we are planning our move to Asia, so I thought I let you know, what we would like to do.
We want to leave early 2011 and it does not matter which airport we fly to, as we are going to have a lot of time on our hands (Singapore, Phuket, Bangkok etc) we just need a cheap flight.
Wherever we arrive, the next step will be to make our way slowly, in fact very slowly to Langkawi, an Island off the coast of Malaysia where we would like to set up a new home for the time being. We are hoping to find an Apartment or little Bungalow for about 100 to 150 Euro per month. From there you can take a ferry easily to Thailand to renew the 3 month visa if need be. We shall find out all Visa possibilities this year by going to the different Consulates in Berlin. As there is an Airport on Langkawi we can plan all other trips once we are settled. So far the plan. We are fully aware we might, or surely will experience problems and that it is not going to be easy, but we are fully prepared to take the risk. We think it is a real chance to get away from the rat-race and to start living. Let’s hope for the best and a smooth running.
Thanks to Evelyn, I have added a Currency Converter on the right hand side.

A Good Start

Well, we have received our passports and sold some of the furniture with a profit. Fiona has been on leave over X-mas and new year (bad back and flu, omg what bad luck) and is now preparing for the last few months in her job. God am I glad when she is out of that place. To all who read this, a happy new year and may all your expectations come true. We are looking forward to 2010 in order to prepare for our adventure and when you look at the picture, who needs 20cm of snow on ones balcony. (Click on the picture to enlarge)
