In Retrospect: 2015 through the Travel Lens

Catching sunrise in Jeongdongjin, Korea in June 2015.

It’s a little late in the new year for a retrospective post, but better late then never eh?

2015 was a good year in terms of travel for me, considering that I am still working in a normal office job full-time and am restricted by the amount of vacation leave I have.

In 2015, I went to Ho Chi Minh City in April, Seoul in May/June, Batam in August, Tokyo and Kyoto in September and Penang in December. With the exception of Seoul and Batam, it was my first time in the rest of the towns and cities.

I consider my Vietnam and Japan trips the most memorable and the most out of my comfort zone, considering that I had been avoiding both countries for the longest time because I was afraid of the language barriers. (Really, what language barrier?)

Looking at my travel patterns, I admit, I am quite the typical Singaporean traveller, going to tried-and-tested and “safe” places.

In 2016, I hope to break out of my comfort zone, to go to places I would not have otherwise gone, to travel solo at least once, and to keep my trips a little more budget.

Will look back at this post on 31 December 2016 to see if these travel resolutions were fulfilled!
