Big Carbon Footprint

By Ling

Carbon footprint is defined as a measure of the amount of carbon dioxide produced by a person, organisation or state in a given time

My carbon footprint is BIG.

Since I left Glasgow on July 15th 2009, I have flown here, there and everywhere.

Glasgow to London to Hong Kong to Bangkok to Chiang Mai to Bangkok to Penang to Kuala Lumpur to Perth to Sydney to Melbourne to Singapore to Hong Kong to Kaohsiung to Hong Kong to Seoul to Hong Kong to Sydney to Melbourne to Sydney to Melbourne to Sydney to Auckland to Sydney to Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne…

…and then tomorrow, back to Sydney and then wait another couple of weeks and then back to Melbourne and then Dubai and then Glasgow!

Yes, I am going home for a short and sweet visit!  I am looking forward to spend time with family and friends.  But at the same time, I am quite disappointed with some friends who never bothered with me after I left UK…but oh well, I guess it’s a true test of who your real friends are!

I wasn’t planning on going home so soon because I actually have a return ticket in July 2010, but for some bizarre reason, Mr Dorky, the boyfriend, booked these tickets within the first week of dating!!!  He is desperate to meet my family and friends and I hope they welcome him warmly.  I have warned them that Scottish people are crazy!  LOL…especially my family!!

Anyway, so back to the carbon footprint – after Glasgow, it’s Dubai to Melbourne to Hong Kong to Penang to Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong to London to Glasgow!

One year’s worth of travelling complete!  Bank account is depleted but I have gained a heckuva travelling experience and met lots of lovely friends and special people out there – y’all know who you are!

What happens after that?  Wait and see…

    Hello. Excuse me just a question. I heard talking about Thailand here. I’m about going on holiday to Asia. I would like some info on Pattaya in Thailand. I would know if It’s a good place to go with family or should I choose another place? Thank You so much.

    I have not been to Pattaya myself, but I have heard that it is a nice place there. Personally, I would not suggest going to Bangkok…but go to Chiang Mai for cultural experience =)
