2011-2012 Backpacking in Asia

R.O.T.I.P. travel blog
Welcome to my blog for my trip to Southeast Asia. On these pages, I'll attempt to tell you about my observations and thoughts while touring Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand.

If you are looking for knowledgeable advice from someone who knows what is here to see, then you'll have to look elsewhere. (grin) But, if you'd like to read about the bumbling journey and (occasionally) funny observations of Southeast Asia by an intrepid explorer, read on!

Note that by default journal entries are listed in REVERSE CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. My newest entries are at the top of the list. So, always start at the bottom or at the oldest entry that you haven't read yet. Enjoy!

For this trip, I'm only bringing what I can carry. I have a large backpack and a small suitcase. I'm taking many short trips from my base stations with only my backpack. When I occasionally move my base stations, I'll lug the suitcase with me. If it didn't fit, it stayed home!
