Same-Same, But Different!

Plastic tables, cool beers & friends....memories of  Vietnam.
Good friends, plastic tables, cold drinks….memories of Vietnam.

There are people who enter your  life unexpectedly & leave an indelible mark! Marlow & Les, an intrepid couple from Saskatchewan are two such individuals.  We met these fine folks in Hanoi last year on the second day of our travels. We have wonderful memories of an afternoon spent wandering back streets, dodging hoards of scooters, to finally sit at little plastic tables & chairs (so typical in Vietnam) enjoying a cold one while swapping life stories. What fun we had & how fortunate we were to be reacquainted several times throughout our respective journeys last year!

Alas, winter has taken its grip; the wanderlust & lure of warmer climes “off the beaten track” beckons. Return tickets to Bangkok have long been purchased & we are very excited to continue our travels in South East Asia. Nights are spent scouring the Internet, figuring out a “loose” itinerary & backpacks are almost organized.Our departure date is two days away & will extend until late March.

Our 2015 travels include the central, southeast & gulf coast of Thailand, with lots of island hopping as we eventually make our way to Malaysia & Singapore. We plan to spend the first few days in Bangkok to get acclimatized & then an open script awaits.

Needless to say it will be a privilege to have you along as we once again experience the carefree back(flash)packer life on the road. So, here’s to another epic adventure & living in the moment!

Cheers, Bob & Theresa

We love to wander, aimlessly at times it seems, and will keep moving as far and as long as we can. Serendipity has provided many wonders along the way, when least expected, and we love the anticipation of the 'next great find' just around the corner.
