Hi folks,

Unlike the Russet potato which is "born to be fried", I look at myself as "born to travel",and for the past 40 years I have been travelling, and travelling - first in the course of my job as a journalist, and now as a media consultant for UNDP-GEF Funded Project. Since nature, conservation & environment are very much in my blood, I suppose my travels are all linked to these interests...the most recent sojourn was a 3 week backpacking to Cambodia, Laos & northeastern Thailand - almost a re-run of my trip 2 years ago...My next trip will be to fly into Phnom Penh, and then get to Ho Chi Minh city by road/boat, and travel up north, and cross over to Savannakhet and into Thailand...With that my 2 year obsession to complete the whole of Laos, Cambodia and Thailand will be fulfilled...and after that my eyes are set on Myanmar.

What have i learnt from my travels so far? Hmmm...Better understanding of humanity!

So guys, maybe u have similar feel free to be in touch.

Chiao, Ar Khun, Sabaidee, Terima Kasih, Nandree,
