I’ve always wanted to travel to Asia, but my wife also had no interest. She’s a microbiologist and fears such densely populated areas with loosely regulated markets. I was making some headway on getting her into the idea, but then…

…yeah. I’ve got quite a few more years of work to do now.

If you go to smaller towns in Asia it may be better for her. All major towns are definitely crowded and very dense. I have to say of each continent I’ve been to Asia is my favorite. I love the dynamism of it all where the new world meets the ancient traditions. Vietnam is where I want to go next. Ha Long Bay has long been at the top of my go to list. Nepal is up there too.


Try and do Ha Long off season! It is a f’ing circus otherwise. We went in Feb and ended up on a traditional day junk, just the 2 of us with captain and his wife. She made a multi-course seafood meal that still ranks near the top. Because it was just us we really got to talk to them and ended up sharing some Mekong whiskey! Whiskey was horrible but the friendship was fantastic.
