So where are HA'ers going in 2014? Post your plans here and maybe some members can meet each other.
I want to bale out of Bangkok soon and go back to farangland for a couple of months. Not so much because of the political trouble or poor dating experience here, but because my mission in Thailand is complete for now. I will surely come back here though.
I also need to return home to get a new passport, as I have no room left for the whole page visa stamps they use these days.
I'm still finalising my 2014 travel plans, but I most want to check out Vietnam.
Where is everyone else hoping to go?
I may be returning to Japan or Korea in 2014. A lot will depend on what kind of visa my wife can get. I wonder if I can convince her to try Thailand?

I've got a lot of places I want to go in 2014, but no definite plans yet, although already being in Asia helps a lot.
-I want to visit Thailand while I'm still in Asia, hopefully date at least one girl from there.
-I want to visit some other cities in China before my teaching contract is up.
-I want to visit the Philippines again before going back to the States
-I'll go back to America for a while after my contract is over, and then hopefully within a few months after that, I'll head out for a another teaching job. Maybe Japan, maybe South Korea, maybe even China again (different province though...)

I hoping to take a 2-3 week excursion around Christmas/New Years to Ecuador/Colombia/Panama region (can't decide how to squeeze it in, but i need to make a decision by the end of the week). I may take another 2-3 week excursion to IST/BEY/MAD sometime in the summer. BEY may be a stretch, but I think I can have enough to do if I just did Turkey and Spain for 3 weeks.
Cambodia and Indonesia - to rather unknown islands and beaches. Indonesia also to photograph the Komodo Dragon. Myanmar.
Possibly Africa or Nepal. Also, possibly Vietnam.
Maybe back to the states to visit my family.
US -> South Korea to begin my English teaching career
Don't know where I'll go from there, but it definitely won't be back to the U.S. I am the latest American man to have written off American women for good.

Philippines (presently here)
Back to Thailand (diving primarily)
Indonesia (maybe a month + diving)
Taiwan (maybe up to two months)
A slightly possibility of maybe parts of China too. Not sure though.
After that i'll be going to the U.S. for a little bit then hopefully i'll be starting my latin adventures starting with Mexico into S. America This will last about 6 months.
This should cover most of 2014.
This of course depends on whether or not I extend my stay at some place due to some unforeseen circumstances or other.
Dec 2013 - Bangkok
Jan 2013 - Chiang Mai
Feb 2013 - Somewhere in Thailand
I don't have any plans after that, but it's possible I'll spend more time in Thailand, or maybe spend some time in China and East Asia. I also may have to go back to Australia for a while if my online business doesn't take off soon, or I may go there to see my family.
Probably spending my summer vacation in the Phillipines, Thailand, and Japan. Hoping for about a month of each. Might do two months of SEA and a month of eastern Europe though, I kind of miss Hungary and want to give Ukraine another shot.
Possibly back to China, possibly somewhere new (South America?)
