First strategic meeting

I can recall the situation quite clearly... having a lunch with Zdenek on Friday October 26th 2007, talking about various things as usually, but also coming up with a crazy idea to set off for a big journey. It shall be the biggest trip we have experienced so far and that will be pretty hard to challenge in future as well. Let's see... :)

Well, nice idea, but let's carry on with some appropriate planning!
Today, it is Tuesday January 29th 2008 and we are meeting again at Zdenek's place for the First strategic meeting.

What is on the agenda:
  • set a rough timeline
  • share our expectations (don't worry - we are not just bullshitting around, thanks to a decent preparation since Christmas)
  • choose destinations
  • create a flight plan
  • fog out (vymlzit) the budget (uff... it was hard to precisely evaluate the costs of accommodation in Vientiane (Laos), transportation fees in Bangladesh or cost of female entertainment in Thailand... you can imagine, can't you?)
  • check our bank accounts :)
  • launch the blog (yeah!)
  • and last but not least... set the next steps, of course!

We've been extremely productive and after 2,5hrs of ice breakers, we've decided the whole thing within another 5hrs.
See the map below to get a better idea about it. More detailed "output" of this meeting will be available soon.

Martine, k tem papucim se kamase daji sehnat jen tezko... uff.

Martin said...

huste papuče :D
anyway, zaujimave čitanie o tejto oblasti som nasiel v knihach Luda Jambricha s nazvom "Indočína skrz naskrz" - prvý diel naprieč Thajskom a Kambodžou, druhý diel naprieč Vietnamom, Laosom a Mjanmarskom. worth checking if you intend to take this seriously.

Diky Martine za tipy, urcite to skouknem a posharujem. O "seriousness" cele akce by mel vypovidat jeji kryci nazev;-)
