That's right! I've quit my job, I finish up in a few days, then a quick trip in Montreal and then a week later, on to Asia! Here's our current itinerary:
Oct 14 - Oct 19: Tokyo, Japan
Oct 19 - Oct 21: Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam
Oct 21 - Oct 23: Hanoi, Vietnam
Oct 23 - Oct 26: Luang Prabang, Laos
Oct 26 - Nov 03: Bangkok, Thailand
It was all pretty spontaneous. Erica suggested she'd like to see Japan some day. I suggested we leave right away!
The decision to leave my job was probably a bit silly. It means job hunting pretty soon, which won't be easy with Christmas around the corner. I do have to say though, I don't regret it a bit. I knew I wasn't particularly happy at my job, but I'm astounded just how much my mood in general has improved since I gave notice. It was almost instantaneous, after a bit of shock a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I hadn't realised how heavy that weight was getting!
