Backpacking Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia: Land of the Temples

Southeast Asia: Land of the Temples

Yes, it is true. I have set off on a new travel adventure.

New, since I haven’t been full-time traveling for a couple of years. New, as the route will zigzag through Southeast Asia, an area unknown to my travel agenda. But mostly new, because for the first time in my life I am not traveling on my own.
That’s right. I have found someone crazy enough to tag along… :)

First stop? Thailand: “Land of the Free”.
Siam, as the country was previously called, officially adopted this new name – “Thai” meaning “free” or “freedom” – on May 11, 1949, to stress that Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia never to have been colonized by Western powers.

Other countries to be visited on this trip?
LaosVietnam, and Cambodia.

To keep each report from becoming far too long to read – a.k.a. to keep you from getting bored and abandoning my blog ;) – our Southeast Asia adventures will be divided into several blog posts about different cities or countries, starting with the next post on Bangkok.
