Southeast Asia

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

So I'm crossing off one of those places on my bucket list of sorts:

Asia.

At least parts of it.

My friends Chris and Dan are fantastic travelers and planners. They planted the seed for this trip earlier in the year and I said, "Heck yeah!"

Now it's September and, along with a good fella named Adam, we're winding our way around Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand.

We're not even halfway into it, but it's already been a marathon of incredible sights, pushy souvenir vendors, crazy road rules, food galore (some great, some "eh"), hotel rooms for a night or two, drinks that have umbrellas and good ol' beer, washing clothes in the tub, exhaustion at night, early mornings, and heat—lots of humid, drenching heat.

It's been awesome.

Just got into Luang Prabang in Laos this evening... haven't even seen the place in the daylight. But if I can stop freaking out about mosquito bites and malaria, I think I'm going to love it here.

Enough typing for now, it's bedtime! Until my next infrequent update, there are naturally some photos so far:

I want to go to Asia when im older, the culture over there is so laid back and respectful. So much to see and do!
