We have finally arrived at a decision closely resembling jumping feet first into the abyss, and are making definitive plans on selling up our current property next year, and relocating/purchasing another property on the south coast of the UK. This decision is made with the sole intention of renting out the property that will sustain and fund our travels for the next few years (at least 5) and being based on the south coast of Devon in the UK, which after several visits ticks all the boxes for a great location to eventually return and live in.

All going to plan, we’re planning on being based  in South Goa from October 2018 as our long term base for an initial stay of 6 months. With the introduction of the 5 year visa for British nationals it’s a great opportunity to take advantage  as not only will this save you time and money to enter India, but opens up endless possibilities of sustainable travel throughout south-east Asia, with flights from Mumbai to Bangkok from as little as £75 one way, and from there the worlds  your oyster with Air Asia’s cheap flights to hundreds of destinations across Asia. We have had numerous scouting adventures and  can’t fault South Goa as an ideal location as a great base to plan for other journeys across India that you can also read here.

Our future plans include further adventures in India, travelling across China, finally visiting Nepal, and lots of destinations across Malaysia & Thailand,  especially Koh Chang and it’s surrounding islands. If you’re looking for information about this destination then look no further than to visit www.iamKohChang.com that’s the definitive guide to everything about this great island and it’s surroundings, and also has some great accommodation on offer. If  everything works out we have promised ourselves it’s our first point of call as it’s been on my list forever and is top of the agenda, and it’s owner also has a great name, though reading recent reports, we’re close to extinction namesake 🙂
