WInter Travels Part 3: Southeast Asia

After a trip home for the holidays, I joined former Woodstock roommate, Emily (who is now working in Wisconsin), and Elsa for three weeks of traveling southeast Asia. Our plans were threadbare - meet in Ho Chi Minh City and, three weeks later, fly out of Bangkok.

We deemed our style of travel the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants approach. We typically knew where we were headed at least a day in advance but, especially in Vietnam, we changed plans quickly and frequently. We opted for local transportation - buses, tuk tuks, and - the greatest of all - motos! When I recall our trip, I often smile at the memory of the three of us zooming through crowded streets on the backs of motorcycles with our packs strapped to our backs.

Here's the route we ended up taking. More posts to come!
