After three days I am still waiting for my Visa, the embassy staff told my I can pick it up on monday between three and four o’clock in the afternoon. But I checked my visa status few minutes ago and I saw the visa is still “under process”.
I was looking for another place to stay yesterday and I found a young man to host me until the eighteenth of this month. I like privat and camping places much more than hostels. You have more place normally. And a hotel is too expensive.
The problem with my website is fixed. You can visit my page again normally.
I have opened a new page on landphotographie.wordpress.com.
There is just one photo now, but a lot more photos will follow. My plan is to sell the photos to finance my trip.
You choose one or more photos and tell me the price you wants to pay. I will give you my bankdetails and send you the photo per mail.
Yeeehh, I arrived in Myanmar, applied for the indian visa and lay in my bed now. I was a bit shocked when I had the conversation with the embassy staff worker. Not, because she was not friendly or something. Because the room where we had the conversation was completely diffrent as my idea from a room in an embassy. You need to know that I never have been to an embassy before. I thought, everything looks very nice and rich. But this room was closed to the opposite. 😳
And the best is: I have a server problem!
So please try to open this page and write in the comments, if you could open it or not. Thank you! 😊
Tomorrow I am in Yangon at this time, hopefully I can apply for my indian Visa tomorrow.
The last days was very much, but also very nice the most time. I got the new passfotos for my indian visa (they have to be 2×2 inches), finished the visa application form and celebrated the birthday from Ajits brother and the house inauguration. Tomorrow we will celebrate my last day in Malaysia for the next time. Ajit and Hanns wants to buy a christmas tree for this. I don’t know why, but I will be surprised.
I am at Hanns’ place again, but we visit Raveen and Ajit tomorrow. Ajits brother came over from Canada and we celebrate his birthday tomorrow.
On sunday we visit them again on their new home. We have a party, something between a inauguration party and a house blessing. They invited prayers, but also friends and family. It is a new experience for me to bless a house. I have never heard of this before.
And I am happy I don’t get the satellite mobile phone anymore. I had a deal with one of the company managers, he lied to me. And few days ago I saw at the visa information page from the indian government that foreigners are not allowed to take a satellite phone with. Sometimes I am happy I do not need to understand everything!
My friends went back from India yesterday at 10pm. We was awake until midnight and longer. They told me from their trips to the montains, somewhere around Amritsar.
Today we go to the vet, one of the dogs have ear and stomach problems.
It was raining today, I had to go out with the dogs, so I though it is a good idea to test my rainwear (a pant and a jacket) today. And what should I say? It is working very well.
So thank you very much again to Aparso Europe GmbH (http://www.aparso.de/)! 🙂
My Visa for Myanmar was approved on Monday and my flight will go from Kuala Lumpur to Yangon on the 11th of December.
I found out they cancelled my ticket, not the flight. They increased the price and could not take the money from my bank account, because I changed just the money I thought I need for the ticket to my bank account. The rest was still at my saving account.
But I decided now I go to Myanmar first, apply for the Indian visa in Yangon. Then I want to go directly to India and from there maybe to Nepal.
I am lucky I checked my flight status five minutes ago. I was wandering why they did not take the money from my bank account. The airline cancelled my flight without writing an E-Mail to me!
But my slicker and the rain pants from Aparso Europe GmbH arrived two days ago. I was very surprised when the package was already in Malaysia after two weeks, it came from Germany.
You can find clothes from Aparso here http://www.aparso.de and on Amazon.
The most of my utensils arrived now, today also my ice spikes. So I am just waiting for the slicker and the rain pants.
I have to stay in Malaysia until the fourth of December minimum, because I am looking to few dogs from my friend. She and her husband going to travel in India for two weeks.
But I have to leave Malaysia before the thirteen of December, my visa runs out at this day.
The last days I was looking for a way from Kathmandu to Uttarrakhand, India. But google maps is really not the best for this. I have a rough way, but I will look for a map in Kathmandu to figure out the final way.
I will start between the two dates mentioned above, in Kathmandu, to buy the travel permit.
I don’t know why I love caps like this so much, but I do!
I bought this cap yesterday in the afternoon secondhandly. It is a bit small for me, but without my hair pot I can put it on well. So I have to cut my hair because I do not like wearing it open. But I wanted to cut them anyway, because I have a lot of hair and they are very thick, which means: I always sweat if I do not tie my hair.
And I finally sent the application form for the Australian superannuation to the tax office of the government. So hopefully I get my super back in the next four weeks.
Yesterday I applied for a lot of jobs as an Influencer and I asked some companies for sponsoring, that will help me a bit. I know it is very late, but better late than never. And of course, in return I will mention the company by name on this blog! But so far I have only received cancellations. Not because my project is not good enough. The companies don’t have any new Influencer projects now. However, so far only a few have responded. So I keep hoping!
I am also thinking a lot about the route in Nepal. Not only because some places are more dangerous than others, also because of the park entry permits. They goes up from 10 US Dollars to few hundred in other parks. So I checked online if the affected parks are in my hiking direction, and until I have not found any. Hopefully it will stay that way until I arrive. From Nepal I want to hike to India, somewhere in Uttarakhand, then cross Afghanistan to Tajikistan. When I am on the way I will look which way I will hike after Tajikistan.
Update: I am sorry you didn’t hear anything from me for a long time. I will try to write more. But I was very busy the last weeks. I changed my plan.
I do not start in America as I wanted to do it first. Start is in Nepal around the first of December this year. From there I want to hike to Europe, then to America, Russia and back to Nepal. I think that’s the longest way I can hike around the globe.
My first video about my last trips is online.
Today I tried to get back my Australian Superannuation. It is quiet difficult if you don’t have all the fund numbers anymore. I was so stupid to put them into a bin few month ago because I thought I don’t need them anymore.
So I tried to contact the Commonwealth bank of Australia in Sydney, where I have my bank account. But I forgot they don’t have an email service. That’s bad. So I searched for the telephone number and I found it. But the time was over, it was too late, I have to call them tomorrow.
But what I also did I tried to put all my staff in my big backpack. I thought it doesn’t work because I have really much, but it works. The rest of the staff which I don’t need anymore goes to other people.
Yesterday I already sold my lovely camera and my Australian cowboy hat. I got 1100 Ringgit for both together. That’s not the best price for me but it’s also not bad. Now I just need to sell my daypack and my shoes and then everything is perfectly.
