What have I gotten myself into this 2014?

Before 2014 started, I told myself that I will dedicate year 2014 for traveling. My goal was to travel or go to a place I've never been every month. I am not the type of person who splurges on fancy clothes, shoes, jewelry, gadgets and other material things. I splurge on traveling because it gives me an experience like no other. I get to step out of my comfort zone, I get to meet people from different walks of life and I get to discover and learn a lot of things about myself.

So my biggest splurge this 2014 was for my travels. Every penny I worked hard for all went to finance my trips. Yes, I may be broke financially at the end of the year but I am definitely richer in experiences that are definitely for keeps.

Before the year ends, let me take you to a trip back to memory lane and share with you my travel tales or as I would label it in my Instagram posts --> #traveltalesofyanyan

January: Kuala Lumpur & Genting, Malaysia 

My first trip for 2014 was the most memorable one because I traveled alone without a concrete itinerary. Also, I never rode a cab while exploring the city. I commuted all throughout the trip. I'm really proud of myself. HAHAHA!!
