Well its official Brown Bear (aka me) will be jetting off to see the world and explore what life can throw at me and what I can hurl back as well!

This is the planned route but judging from timing and budget this may be lengthened or shortened I haven't decided yet but hey ho!!

Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia (live and work for 8 months), New Zealand, San Fran, Mexico, New York & Toronto /Montreal


I should be gone for a year, in that time I have set myself a few little tasks and challenges but more on that when I actually fly out!

Also to answer a few questions which are been thrown my way constantly, welcome to Marv's FAQ section

Q.Why did you pick these places?

A. I only really picked Australia, New Zealand and New York but the uber- sexy travel agent kept added more places to the list as I continued to drool on his desktop! The added bonus is that I have never been to any of these places as well and I get to see my fake uncle Jerry who may be the coolest person I know!

Q. Why did you decide to do this trip?

A. I'm officially 30 and as a mini crisis I decided to make a go of it as I have no house, no bf, no gf, no gerbil, nothing so might as well do something I've wanted to do since I was a teen but was too poor or drunk to do!

Q. You're moving to Oz will you be staying for more than your intended time?

A. To be honest I have a feeling I'll be leaving in the 8 months, I want to do the NZ and American part of my tour and I think me in a racist country will be too much..... For them!!

Q. You going alone?

A. YES, if I took someone with me I would end up killing them or planting 1.5 million of coke on them to get rid of them and I have a few things I want to do and with the distraction of someone else I doubt I'd finish them! Plus I have no patience so I can do things on my time.

Q. Are you sure you're ready to leave?

A. In all honesty no but when you do something you have no idea of what is ahead of you, how can you be sure......


Oh well that’s Q&A done back to packing.......

Well I can be followed aka stalked on FB - or instragram "maloweuk" if you look creepy I won't add you...... unless I'm drunk
