Create New TripSE Asia Sojourn to Visit Old Friends

a trip by Gerry Kataoka
From: July 23rd 2018
Until: ongoing

The primary purpose of this trip to Southeast Asia is to reconnect with friends I have made over the years, on previous visits. This trip includes two dear travel companions, and includes the countries of Thailand, Malaysia (L and Penang), Cambodia, and Vietnam. Along the way, we will enjoy some great meals together, but most likely a minimum of tourist type activities.
