Indochina Adventure

For the next three weeks I will be travelling around what was once referred to in days gone by as Indochina! During the trip I will be employing many fantastical modes of transport including: planes, trains, automobiles, boats, bicycles, sampans and rickety old rickshaws. My travel adventure will take me to Old Saigon, Imperial Hue, Ancient Hoi An, and the Enigmatic Angkor Wat amongst many other exotic and mystical destinations.

Do please come along for the ride!

I’m really looking forward to the trip having waited a whole year to get the finances and plans in place. I leave after Christmas Day and you can follow my travels via an interactive map that will appear in my next blog post that I’ll be publishing before I leave. I found this smashing little quote from some time back while surfing the net, and feel that it’s quite fitting in regard to my next little venture, I hope you enjoy it.
