Around the world in 80 days

No, I think that would be a bit unrealistic with the Hubs’ working hard and the girls’ school. We do randomly ‘ponteng’ school quite a bit (as I do not believe that school is the be all and end all as I probably educate them even more out of school, and I do not believe that us ‘ponteng-ing school will result in my teaching the kids not to be responsible adults as I have other lessons to counteract that) but to ‘ponteng’ for 4-6 months at a go, I think would be a stretch. So I’m not quite sure yet how we’re going to do this but let’s start by listing the cities that we plan to explore……

One thing I find really sad is that the Hubs refuses to travel to India or China or any other ‘what he considers’ 3rd world countries. He’s such a SNOB!!! I’ve asked him countless times to follow us to Myanmar. He is just NOT interested. So it is a definite that we won’t be visiting India or China. With him anyway. I’m still working on the Asean countries but it’s not working well. Even going with his parents to Cambodia, he says he’s not interested. Bah.

New Zealand – 7 days

Singapore – 3-4 days

Tokyo – 7 days

Hawaii – 3 days

USA/Canada – 7 weeks – 3 days San Francisco – 3 days Yosemite – 3 days Death Valley – 3 days LA Disneyland – 4 days LV Grand Canyon – 5 days Phoenix – 3 days Houston – 5 days Chicago – 2 days Ann Arbor Detroit – 1 day Pittsburgh – 3 days Washington DC – 1 day Philadelphia – 7 days New York/Long Island……to be continued to include Canada to visit Topaz  🙂

Middle East – 8 days

African Safari – 5 days

Europe – now here’s the interesting continent. We want to see so much of it that it is impossible to do it at one go so we’re going to split it for the first round and then return if the desire hits, and I am sure it will as we have so many friends and family there; just like Australia……and the US.

For the first leg of Europe, we would travel the 1st world countries (Hub’s favourite destinations since he needs efficiency and hygiene) and cover France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechenstein, Luxembourg, the UK, Austria, Netherlands, Monaco and maybe Germany. On our 2nd leg, we’d do Spain, Portugal, Germany, Prague and Greece. This is why I need to work.

South America – 2 weeks

Russia, Scandinavia, Alaska, Iceland and the rest of the world – when and if the urge arises.

That’s 22 weeks at a minimum, 6 months to take a round the world trip if you really want to see places and not just fly from city to city. But we’re going to do it.

Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.

Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.

She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.

A beautiful life without limits.

Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
