4 days to go!

| January 21, 2008 | 7 Replies

Four more days to go; both for my exams and of course, continuing the Nseries Urbanista Journey after Devin.

These are the dates of my travels:

25th January:

  • Leave london 21:00 to Singapore.

26th January

  • Arrive in Singapore: 18:00

27th January

  • Leave Singapore 10:00,
  • Arrive Kuala Lumpur 11:00

29th January

  • Leave Kuala Lumpur: 08:00 via Bangkok (09:00)
  • Arrive Koh Samui: 12:00

4th February

  • Leave Koh Samui: 17:00
  • Arrive Bangkok: 18:00

8th February

  • Leave Bangkok: 11:00
  • Arrive Chenai: 13:00

10th February

  • Leave Chenai: 04:00
  • Arrive London: 09:00

I’d love to meet anyone who’ll be in the area when I’m visiting. One of my mates will actually be flying out to Thailand soon and I might get to meet him up at Koh Samui.
Everything is pretty much all set. On the advice of Devin I am packing light. Just one small Rucksack, hand carry size.


I will NOT be bringing my laptop. It’s 17″ behemoth of a Dell (1710) – a desktop replacement. Plus, it’s my main work station so I’d rather not risk loosing it.

Instead, I will be bringing the N800 upgraded to OS2008 plus a BT keyboard. With the N82 to record and the N800 to upload, I’ll hopefully be doing frequent short video blogs as my journey progresses. I’ll also be posting a selection of the full size pictures off to photobucket and then linking to them here on this blog. In addition to what you’ll see on the Nseries site, here’s the album to which my pictures will be uploaded: Photobucket link – click me. Fingers crossed that I can get some upload speeds.

Vaccinations have already been taken of a couple of weeks ago, just need to buy the last few essentials of insect repellent and plug adapters. All I got to do (and should be doing) now is revise and finish the Jan Exams!

BTW: If any one knows how to upload to youtube straight from the N82 without doing it the compressed MMS way please pop me a message on how to do that? 🙂

P.S. Check this Competition Link out to win the N82 for yourself. Just work out where the photo was taken.

    You can upload straight to YouTube via ShoZu ( It’s a really neat app that lets you upload pics and videos to quite a lot of services. It does however use about 4MB of RAM all the time and that’s why, sadly, I can’t use it with my N95-1 (even after v20 fw, 4MB still is too much). Hope this helped. Anyway, travel safe!

  • Looks like a travel worthy kit! I second the Shozu recommendation… it will actually let you CC uploads to multiple services. I think photobucket is even one of the included ones for photos.

    Subscribed to your photo feed. Look forward to following you.

    If you wish to play with another video service you might try out Vimeo. Tumblr has simple vimeo integration that supports uploading directly through tumblr as well. I plan on throwing together a new Tumblr that includes all my generated media and postings during the trip. Best of will be blogged normally too, but it’s nice to see it all in one place. Plus Tumblr has natively supports a mobile format.

    looking forward to following your trip! make sure you take photos of people you meet too, sometimes i feel that the photos that have been uploaded for the moment are too much of streets and cars than what is actually happening. you know what i mean? i’m sure the trip is more than getting from one place to the other, but what you do.

    good luck!!

  • Hi Jay,

    I like ShoZu and use it to send my photos with their geotags to flickr. I did find that trying to upload video from my N95 to YouTube took a loooooonnnggg time.
