Can probably swing a 1.5-2 month travel period if i play my cards right. I am so excited.

 

You'll have the time of your life! I liked it so much I did it twice! The first time for 3 months, the second time 2 months, but I also went to Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. 2 months should be plenty of time to see most things in Thailand/Cambodia/Laos and perhaps a bit of Vietnam as well. 

 

Oh, how I miss the long college holidays. Enjoy them while you can. Traveling in college is worth racking up some debt over. Don't spend the money on fancy hotels or food, but stay in cheap hostels, sleep on the beach if it's safe, etc., and save the money for the experiences. You can get by on $20-30 a day, depending on your lifestyle and the season. That'll get you a bungalow on the beach, amazing street food/small restaurants, some thai whiskey and some taxi trips to wherever you want to go. It might be cheaper (and lots more fun!) to rent a motorcycle if you're staying in the same place for a while.

 

I did it, and I don't regret it at all. I probably wouldn't have the job I have now without those travels, and the personal growth and self-reliance you achieve by traveling solo in your late teens/early twenties is well worth it.

However, if it looks really bad, I'll opt for something else. I like the thought of the "black shoes after 6pm" thing and like the formality in following some of these old rules. If I insist on wearing black, I'm sure you all agree that a pair of casual black shoes would be more appropriate, but what would be the best style? A plain toe derby, a loafer, or something else? Also, I'm open to the fact that I'm completely nutz. smile.gif

 

If you like to wear black shoes and want something versatile for such events, perhaps consider a monk?  Technically casual, comfortable and easy but so much more slick and sexy than a loafer.

 

Also, wild card: black suede?

 

P.S. Eating rotten cabbage is deviant behaviour.  Indian food is the bestest.

@Coxsackie Has the whole world gone crazy? That suit definitely has an overcheck.

But not in another colour, I guess that is what was meant.

I am all over the place with ties...NMWA, Vanda, local store, etc...

 

As for the tie in the picture, I am not sure of the material, but here is a solid navy:

Good call.   I covet that Panta.   CB's is a teal or turquoise.  Tricky to find.

Haha, I've been done with college for 5 years. I'm leaving my job in the early summer (june-ish?) to travel a bit before starting med school in the fall. Starting to do the research now. And trying to save over the next few months for the trip as well!

I'm also thinking of heading to london for a week or so in march!

Haha, I'll probably still be around then. Meeting up with a couple of the SF'ers there would be awesome!

 

I'm going to be in London and Dublin visiting and hanging out with a friend that's doing her masters at the school of trop med. Haven't seen her in a while and we've had a blast traveling together in the past so this will be a good time.

Going back to school gives you the chance to be young again! People have fun in med school too!

I've never met up with people from the Internet, but what the hell, send me a PM when you're in London.

Sweet deal Mimo and mf. Ill let you guys know dates when I'm able.

This trip brought to you by the return of an interest free loan from uncle Sam.

Med school is rough though. Hopefully I'll be able to do another trip during the summer between the first and second year. It's going to be nuts living entirely off loans though.

Also I wish I'd listened to my folks in high school and switched to Spanish. It'd have opened so many doors for travel and it's something i could easily speak a few times a week at work and even when i was in college done since there were so many bilingual people.

Really, there are many Korean restaurants in DC metro but nothing comes close to homemade.

@EliodA
Stay away from clean and nice looking Korean restaurants. The best ones tend to be hole in the walls.

I had incredible Korean food here, last night in Ottawa.   We waited 45 minutes outside in -20C. It was worth it.  Yes, in an old house, essentially a hole in the wall.

Come say hi! I can recommend the food places.

Hah, it'll be hilarious if my presence spurs a london SF meetup!

Was it here @Claghorn came out revealing his planned wardrobe for the week? In awe of you there ol' friend.

Not quite so sophisticated but I do the same with...

Shoe Shine Shunday






PS Be delighted to hook up for lunch if anyone is in town anytime soon, RTC let us know your itinerary? I have the pleasure of Upr's company next week (18th) if anyone is near by? Lunch on me!

That's a whole lotta shine, Cleav!
