"I'm going to base myself in Vietnam.."

Hey daveh, why Vietnam over the other Asian countries as your "base"?

A few reasons really.
I think now is a good time to go there from a work point of view and English teaching pays a relatively good wage compared to the cost of living.
I want to explore the place a lot more, although i want to explore more of Asia generally, and admittedly Bangkok or somewhere similar would be a better option to get to other places in Asia i just like Vietnam. I have a friend or two working in Vietnam as well so personally i would find it an easier place to settle in than somewhere like Bangkok.

daveh, living in Vietnam sounds awesome, good for you. Love the country, and the food!

So far this year, been busy at work, much time spent on dreaming of climbign Mt Kinabalu in Sabah and heading to India.

I have already planned my current year trip: Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam...may be able to go to Laos and Burma, it will depend. But my next year trip will be either hiking in Ireland or hiking the Kilimanjaro in Africa...cant decide...

I saw on the news 2 days ago that the peak of Kilimanjaro is no longer covered in snow. Scientists thing this is the first time this has ever happened.

Dave, was it you that had to be brought down from the Kilimanjaro before hitting the summit? I read it on a post but then I lost it...I cant really remember who it was. I have lots of questions.
