Welcome to our travel blog! We plan to share photos, stories and lessons learned from our 2016 one-full-year adventure in Southeast Asia. If you have any tips or suggestions we’d love to hear from you!
In preparation for this trip we sold, or gave away, everything! Ok …99% of everything (we have a few boxes of keepsakes stored in our mom’s basements). The house, both cars, mountain bikes, all the furniture, etc. are all gone. Everything we kept fit into our compact rental car. We are off with just the clothes on our back.
When we return we will get to start fresh… and after a year away we are hoping to have a new perspective.
We left Kelowna, BC, Canada on December 18, and spent a great, wintery Christmas season in St. Albert, AB with family and friends. Then we spent another wonderful 10 days in Escondido, CA, USA with Christine’s mom. On January 10, 2016 we fly to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Our friend Fred lives there and we will start our trip with a long overdue visit.
After travelling in Malaysia we are hoping to go to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. There are many other countries we would also like to visit – we will be making up our plan as we go! Bhutan is a dream for Mark… has anyone been there?
