Southeast Asia 2011
Monday, January 24th, 2011
In the wee hours of January 29th 2011, Julie & I together with our good friends and travel companions Dave and Mary Apps depart our Deep Cove Oasis for a month-long journey through Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos & Thailand. While this is our first trip to this part of the world both Dave and Mary have traveled in the region before. Their excitement at the prospect of returning is infectious. In this travel journal I hope to share with readers some of the sights, sounds, tastes and textures that we will experience along the way. While I cannot say we have done extensive research, we have watched some great movies and read some great books in the last couple of months. We have also visited a few Vietnamese restaurants.
Even though we don’t leave until Saturday (today being Monday) there are actually only four more sleeps given that we are scheduled to depart at 2AM Saturday morning, arriving in Bangkok 11 AM on the 30th. There is still much to do before we sleepily shuffle on board.
