I have always been a “Planned” guy, who does everything with a decent amount of planning and thinking. But somehow, the concept of unplanned traveling always exhilarates me.
In the year 2015, I decided to go on my first solo travel and left my country India for the first time. I was in Australia for around 8 days. All alone, in an unknown country far from my homeland. That was an experience which along with giving me a feel of adventure, gave me inspiration. More than going abroad and visiting great places, I have been craving for that experience of being alone in an unknown place. A weekend or 5-7 days long trips do not excite me anymore.
So, I decided to do it again and this time, it should be bigger. After saving for few months, I decided to quit my regular office job. Finally, 11th April 2016 was my last day at one of the favorite companies I worked for. Giving priority to my heart over my brain, I decided to travel as much as possible, before either I go broke or become exhausted.
The whole plan is based on the assumption that I will be able to make some money doing freelance work while traveling. But as I said, it’s an assumption yet to be proven.
So here I am, in Thailand. Jobless, determined and focused on chasing what I have dreamed about. This first trip is going to be 3 months long starting 7th May 2016 covering 5 Asian countries. Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.
If you are a friend, here is how you can help:
1. Suggest me amazing places to go.
2. Forward me any freelance opportunities. As a part of skill set, I am a penetration tester or Ethical Hacker. I find ways to hack applications so that companies can fix them and become more secure.

Wish me luck friends 🙂
