In 1983 I make the classic South East Asia sojourn with my friend Donna, taking in Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia & New Zealand. A year later, in 1984 I make another trip with Donna & Craig, this time going off the beaten track, to China, India & Nepal. Craig & I return in 2010 for a five week odyssey to Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam. In 2018 we revisit India, adding a week long side trip to Sri Lanka.
The blogs themselves, especially the photos, tell the stories of a couple of prairie kids with a gypsy streak who make a three month trip to China, India and Nepal into the honeymoon before the wedding. The travel bug bites hard and deep, the couple bond, and Asia becomes a turning point.
