What You Should Do

I have no idea what you should do. I barely have a clue about what I should do, and even that is a little murky, shall we say.

Other people who blog seem very sure of what to do, and I am grateful for their confidence. Their wisdom and willingness to share has been an invaluable resource.

For instance, if you want to blog, start here

If you want to learn about visiting every country in the world click here

If you want to read some of my favourite travel writing click here

But if you want to see some clueless wide eyed impostor stumble his way through Southeast Asia, I'm your man.

From The Theoretical To The Real

S-21,Toul Sleng School

So in a few weeks I am going to points unknown. Passport? check. Vaccines and meds? check. Plane ticket? check.

One month of my life soaking in as much of the human experience as I can.

From the bloated and fat sex tourists of Bangkok, to the magic of Angkor Wat, the despair of  the Killing Fields and S-21Saigon, Phnom Penh, Hanoi, Halong Bay and Hue and god knows what in between.

Its the adventure of a lifetime, and I am so blessed that the stars aligned to give me this opportunity. Hopefully, I'll find the right moment to give back along the journey.
