'Looking forward' for many people involves planning their week of bagged lunches and appointments.
For a backpacker - it's all about where to next.
And, of course, I have a few ideas:
Ethiopia - amazing untouched culture, great food and the Great Rift Valley
Nepal - snow-capped peaks, great food and cool treks
Mongolia - yes, go back to Mongolia, friendly culture, horrendous and repulsive food and wide open spaces. But this time it has a huge twist - buy horses with Kelti and ride across the country.
I only have 8 months to decide...anyone want to weigh in?
