      You are mentioned many times my dear!! :)

    Wow! I am so impressed with you. I love to travel as well, but I have kept it to the domestic USA side. Funny, that you leave for South Korea shortly. I am doing the exact same thing for China very soon.
    Your story is inspiring. Best of luck to you!

    • intrepidtraveller October 31, 2010 at 6:49 pm #

      That’s cool that you are going to China. I look forward to reading about your chinese adventures. Thanks for reading my blog, love getting feed back so really appreciate your nice comments.

    I want to be a traveler and journalist like you. :D But I know this is not that easy. Becoming a journalist may not be that much tough (I’m already into it), but being a traveler (while not having a lot of money) is definitely tough.

    Good that you enjoy your life. :)

    • intrepidtraveller October 31, 2010 at 6:47 pm #

      Thanks for your nice comments Sajib. If you put your mind and your heart to it, I’m sure you too could become a Journalist!

    I really like your blog!

    I wondered if you’d be interested in being featured on a Korean Travel Website? Here’s the link to it:


    We started the site as a pilot, with just Gangwon-do, but it’s been so successful that we’re launching version two really soon with information on the whole of Korea.

    We’d love to feature some information from you or your blog if you have some you think would be suitable – we would link to you and hopefully increase traffic to your blog also… See http://www.thesouthkoreatravelguide.com/thesouthkoreatravelguide_contribute.html for details on what’s in it for you :-)

    Hope you like the website! Look forward to hearing from you!

      Thanks, I hope I will have some adventures once I finish my masters!

  9. advgrrls January 12, 2012 at 12:46 am #

    Ok you beat me….nice list…. ;-)

    • intrepidtraveller January 12, 2012 at 12:59 am #

      haha WOOHOO. I will be adding Belgium and Luxembourg in 2 weeks!

      • advgrrls January 12, 2012 at 1:08 am #

        Hard to go all over with a motorcycle…unless we take our dream 3 year trip. Might be staying in North America for awhile riding on our bikes until then. Have a great time.

      • intrepidtraveller January 12, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

        Wow cool! You guys need to read Lois Pryces book…I interviewed her for my Journalism thesis. She went, alone, on her motorbike from London to Capetown, the whole way down through Africa AND from Canada down to Patagonia! Amazing woman! https://janetnewenham.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/international-adventurers-part-2/

  10. advgrrls January 12, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    I read about her…great stuff….we will one day make the trip from Ireland to South Africa…need to find the time and get bikes over there we think…that would be a long trip…we have grandiose plans…just have to work out the $$ and time away from our jobs. I am just starting a new job so I need to behave for a while before telling them I need time off! LOL

    • intrepidtraveller January 13, 2012 at 10:02 am #

      Wow that sounds like an EPIC trip. If you start in Ireland be sure to look me up…although I myself might be back in Africa…where my heart belongs! :)

  11. alterego9221 January 22, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    • intrepidtraveller January 30, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

  12. crowcanyonjournal January 23, 2012 at 4:56 am #

    Wow! That’s a long list of countries you have visited! I just read your postings about Australia and New Zealand and will drop by again to read about some of the other places. Good Luck in your studies and thanks for visiting my blog!

    • intrepidtraveller January 30, 2012 at 5:33 pm #

      Thanks, hope you enjoy the other posts! :)

  13. Lisa DeChavan February 16, 2012 at 5:37 pm #

    wow! You’ve already done so much! What an amazing life you’ve lived so far! I read your “about” as well – you are an inspiration Janet! =0) Peace, L

    • intrepidtraveller February 16, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

      haha thanks for your lovely comment…I have many more adventures ahead of me! :)

  14. Subhan Zein March 17, 2012 at 7:35 am #

    I admire your list, so exhaustive! But unfortunately you haven’t visited a place heaven meets earth..

    I think you should definitely go there one day! :-)

    Subhan Zein

    • intrepidtraveller March 19, 2012 at 10:23 pm #

      You are right…many, many beautiful places in the world left to visit! But I’m only 26…so have all the time and energy in the world!

      • Subhan Zein March 20, 2012 at 12:32 am #

        True! And that’s even better, you’re still 26, you still have the wonderful opportunities to see the marvels of the world! Awesome! With your energy and venturesome, I’m sure you’ll eventually be able to visit all countries listed in the UN… :-)
