June 1 marks the day that we return to Asia. Are we excited? Absolutely. It feels like returning to a long lost love left mid sentence across the world. I have missed the area dearly, anxiously, from the living seas of Indonesia to the crooked smiles of mainland Asia. This trip, will be our most ambitious yet. We will search for forgotten temples in Cambodia, swim with camouflaged cephalopods in the Lembeh Straits, seek out the hill tribes in Laos, and traverse through the splintered Union of Myanmar by train.
There will be gorgeous beaches, and too many flights. Choppy boat rides and dangerous nights. This trip will be ambitiously insane in any right. And yet, I will take the time to tell our tale. Our adventure will be laid out across the page screaming out from little typed words and big bright pictures. That is how we have done it around here, and will continue to do.
This time around, 4 of us will be making the trip. We have Kristin and I, along with my brother Ryan and his friend Meagan. I will do my best to keep things entertaining, so you do your best to keep up with the blog. Hell, tell your friends and their friends, and your friend's friend's mom. Tell your golden retriever and the opossum that lives in the back yard. Trust me, no one will think you are crazy. This is an expensive hobby, and I want more readers. To say that I do this for free would be a vast understatement, a considerable investment takes place before even one stupid little word scurries out from my fingers and onto this glowing page.
I used to want to change the world. Now, I just want to see it. That is either a beautiful or horrible thing, perhaps both even. In the coming weeks, I am going to post my favorite pictures from some of the places that we have been. Enjoy the blog, our adventure starts in Vietnam in early June.
