I am all packed and ready to go. I can't believe how fast the last month has gone by, not to mention the last year! But it has come to an end, and my little adventure is about to begin. I head up North for New Years tomorrow...then leave for Hawaii on Monday...then it's off to Bangkok on the 8th. Things have come together quickly, and I am still amazed and grateful every day that everything has worked out.
The rough itinerary is going to be something like this...
5 days in Bangkok to get visas, etc
A week in Ko Tao to get scuba certified
A couple weeks in Northern Thailand
Boat out of Thailand via the Mekong River into Laos around Feb 8th-9th
Spend 3 weeks in Northern Laos (the last untouched SE Asian country according to everyone who knows the area). I will stay near and around Luang Prabang.
I will fly into Hanoi, Vietnam in the beginning of March where I will travel the entire length of the country overland to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in the south. This should take around 3 weeks.
After that I will fly into Siem Reap in Cambodia and spend a week or so exploring Angkor Wat before heading by bus or boat into Phnom Phen and the Killing Fields.
As of now, that will be the extent of my travels, I will fly back to Hawaii and then home.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and everyone has a happy and safe New Years!
