So here is 10 nations that I am going to set my eyes and Pound Sterlings on in 2016.
I have never ever been to Central Asia. Kyrgyzstan is a nation that sets itself different from the rest of the other STANS! They give you 60 days Visa Free and its a good launching pad to get to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
Yes it does neighbour Kyrgyzstan. You can get a bus between Bishkek and Almaty in a short period of time. The good thing is I don't need a visa for Kazakhstan (cause I'm British) but the bad thing is I only get like 15 days in the country and by taking many trips within Central Asia it might add up.
My only concerns with going to the Stans of Central Asia that its still going to be cold and snowing in March
So far in my quest to visit former British Colonies I have been to: Australia (born & raised there), New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, Gibraltar, Singapore, Malaysia, India, United Arab Emirates, Brunei, Papua New Guinea and Ireland
I have yet to visit South America and I hope to get to the Guyana's and spend a few week between all 3 of them. But as English is my mother tongue I think I am going to ride on into Georgetown. Besides Guyana hates being lumped with South America as they play their Football with the Caribbean
I have always had proud times visiting an Armenian church in Sydney and Singapore. So in 2016 I hope to finaly visit Motherland Armenia and spend a good 2 weeks there. Armenia isn't a country that I would only want to spend 1-4 days inside its borders..
Okay its not really a country at all and its flag doesn't fly at the UN General Assembly. But for 100 years of British rule in Hong Kong is enough for me to want to visit. I can live and work in Hong Kong because its pretty easy to get a work permit over there
I have grown up with Maltese Immigrant's in Australia, my Yoga Teacher is of Maltese Decent and Malta was once a British Colony so all these things are making me want to go visit Malta.
I hope that its a cheap flight to Malta from London or I might get the ferry from Italy
Yet again Guernsey is not an Independent nation, but like Hong Kong its got a bit of special status to it. My cousin Charles lives in Guernsey so I plan to see him the next time I move back to England. Its so expensive to live in the Channel Islands as you would have to have a live in job to save on rent
I was supposed to go visit Manila in January 2015, but a fucked up illness in Borneo struck me down, I had to cancel the rest of my Asian holiday because people are too stupid to drives buses in Borneo at 16C and not covering their fucking mouth when they cough.
I am going to spend a night in Manila in March/April on the way back to the UK. I know I have this habit of having a layover in a South East Asian nation before going to Heathrow but the Philippines is closer to Papua New Guinea and Indonesia and it needs to be coloured in on my map.
I brought a very cheap flight to Sweden to leave in October 2015. But unfortunately I ended up leaving for Europe earlier than expected because people in Sydney are wankers for not giving me the chance to rent a room and people in Birmingham are also wankers for not giving me a job.
I really want to go check out Stockholm and even pay my respects to Quarthon and Dead at the local Cemetery
Yes the Australian Government tells us all NOT TO TRAVEL to Sudan even when it is the over landing link between Egypt and Ethiopia.
I want to take the slow ferry from Aswan in Egypt to Wadi Halfa, travel down to Khartoum while stopping by some Pyramids and then travel onto Ethiopia.
Tips for anyone who wants to travel to Sudan. GET YOUR VISA AT THE CONSULATE IN ASWAN! It only cost $50 and you don't need a letter from your countries embassy.
