From here I don’t know yet where I’m going. It also depends if a company can help me with a flight ticket, because I’m almost running out of money. My plan is to cross the ocean and go towards South America.

I’m still looking for internships there but also in Africa, Australia & New Zealand.

if you are an agency, brand, charity or another cool organisation/initiative please let me know if you want me as an intern:  mark@thebackpackerintern.com

    Heer Daniel,

    Weet je al wanneer je in NYC bent en heb je al een plekje?

    Ik zit hier de komende maand in ieder geval nog voor MediaMonks dus als je een hook-up nodig hebt, kan altijd even rondvragen.

    Veel plezier en succes en dingen!

    Niels

  3. Ricardo @Zbulo! Discover Albania

    Heya Mark,

    great trip you are rolling! I am not sure how tight you cling to the initial itinerary, if I hit the road my schedule usually dissolves within 72h, should you ever get attracted to the Balkans make sure to drop by in Albania ;)

    After returning from Turkey to Germany I wanted to go back to the Middle East, my girlfriend wasn’t so fond of it so we decided to move to Japan. Looking at the map there are an awful lot of places you miss out on flying to the land of the rising sun, so I came up with the idea to travel there by car. Six month in we got to Albania and *wow* I fell in love with the place! I’m looking forward to your story!

    I like your idea.
    How about have a trip in China?
    We located in Ningbo, 2.5 hours drive from Shanghai.

    We may also try to meet in NewYork or Boston around 14th May ~ 16th May, since I will be there during that time. For discuss your Chinese trip if you like to.

    Best Regards!

    If you come to China, I will be waiting for you in Wuhan city. All I want you to help me to do is playing Pingpang with me. Do you think you can beat me?
