Many people would argue that world travel changes a person in very positive ways, making their vision wider and their life more complete. The next best thing, or for people planning future trips is to read about other traveler’s eye opening experiences. I thought it would be great to document my experiences in South East Asia and see if I could deliver some value to others who wanted to go or simply learn more about these countries and their wonderful cultures and people. I look forward to seeing the new blog grow and hearing what readers think about it. It’s really a pleasure to write about.
Phillipines & Thailand
Philippines and Thailand were two of the highlights of my travels. Both countries had their own unique benefits and things to enjoy, it also gave me the chance to dedicate some of his time to volunteer work. In Bangkok I worked at the Pakkred Babies Home Orphanage, a place desperately in need of funding and assistance of all kinds. A life changing experience, it truly illustrates the differences between the East and West when it comes to the most disadvantaged people and the situations they are forced to live in and make it through. Bathing elephants and tasting the abundance of cuisine Thailand has to offer was also high on the lists.
Swimming with whale sharks, Kawasan Falls jungle trek, and staying on NoaNoa Island were also standout adventures for me in the Philippines. And of course, who could forget the filipino smile everywhere you go!
So take a look round, and hopefully you can pick up some travel tips and get a brief glimpse into what South East Asia has to offer.
