To Moscow With Love

We have 24 hours per day and still people complain that they don't have enough time. But for me, I'll always find time to travel.But it gets annoying sometimes when people say it's because I have a lot of money when the reality is far from that.

All you have to do to travel are cutting costs and SAVE, SAVE and SAVE!

So it just happens.. that on the historic day, 21st of April 2014, which miraculously coincides with me receiving my salary and also "tunggakan dari Januari" for the increment in salary, that there was a Vietnam Airlines Sale on all international flights. There were flights to Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, Moscow.. etc for rates under RM2,000!!

Say what?? Return flight tickets to Moscow for RM1,948.00??!!! I almost screamed in delirium. And many finger-tapping-on-keyboard moments later, I secured the tickets.



One month salary....swooooshhhh! Down the drain. Just like that! Days after the thoughtless purchase  resulted in me going out less and going hungry most of the time. I even resorted in borrowing my sister's scholarship money just to buy some much needed home essentials. Hahaha!

***fast forward to 26th September 2014***

My backpack was packed and ready to go. I printed all my train, bus, cruise, and flight tickets and would be heading to the airport right after work. It was just two weeks earlier that I was discharged from the hospital for acute eczema, and on that traveling day, without healing properly, I was going to be traveling again. My fingers and feet were wrapped with medicated bandages but I was determined to fly by hook or by crook. All those months of planning wasn't going to waste just like that. So Moscow here I come, sick girl goes traveling!

Praise to god, weather in Moscow has been good to me!  
OK... managed to write only a few paragraphs to update my pathetic blog. Hehe. Will try to update more, especially that part where I had to sleep at Hanoi's airport and waking up all alone in the departure hall!!

Till then, happy traveling! :)
