After handing in my TV Documentary and successfully completing four great years at Ryerson, it was time for an adventurous break. With only three weeks available, me and Sachin Seth decided to hit up Southeast Asia and do/see/explore/travel as much as we could.
I think we did a pretty good job considering the time we had: we saw four countries, including capital cities for all of them; we got a crash course in the history of that region; we saw the most breath-taking landscape; we met the nicest and most humble people; we trekked, we swam, we rode an elephant…. and of course, we documented it all.
While I start working on putting together more blog posts from our trip, here is a glimpse of what we did. On our last day in Koh Samui, Thailand, a lady sold a lantern to us. I drew a quick map on it and we released it into the Thai skies, reflecting on what a great trip we had.
The fellow travelers we met on our journey criticized our lack of time for exploring this beautiful part of the world. And indeed three weeks aren’t enough. The months are probably not enough either. We did speed through Southeast Asia but we are glad we got to do it – even if it was an express trip.
Stay tuned for more updates from the trip
