step one: apply for leave
step two: check online for information, decide which countries to go
step three: buy/borrow guide books to plan trip
even if u're not going to paris any time soon, that chinese book in the bottom left corner of the picture above is an interesting read. thanks to a dear friend who told me about it, i can now plan my shopping route without much trouble...hmm. BUT. there's one problem. so many charming shops in the book...so little time...which ones to visit?
step four: book air tickets online
steps one to four have been accomplished. hooray!
step five: finalise itinerary
step six: book accomodation
step seven: purchase travel necessities
step eight: finish all work before leave starts (the most most most difficult and least fun step...@_@)
step nine: pack (2nd most difficult)
step ten: take off and have fun!!
my dream...is less than a month away from coming true...can't wait!
