4 Days in Bangkok: The Southeast Asia Journey Begins (Vlog 001)


…That’s hello in Lao.

As I write to you, I’m currently in Tha Heua, a small fishing village 25km south of Vang Vieng, Laos. There is almost nothing here, but the occasional local fisherman slowly motoring by in a two person long boat and the small guesthouse we serendipitously came across a few days prior.

We’re loving it. Until we arrived, we’d been in quite tourist-heavy towns and cities. It’s nice to disconnect (a bit) and slow down. After all, we said we were not “backpacking” but “vagabonding” – the distinction being that we intended to travel slowly and really experience each place.

Anyway, to get to the point of this email…

As cringe-worthy as this is to share (because I’m awful on camera, hate my own voice and 99.5% introverted), we thought it would be cool to share our journey (literally) around the world with those who wanted to follow along.

I spent FAR too long on this video. I’ve never made or edited a video so go easy on me! Just wish I would have made one for our other stops along the way in NYC, England and Mallorca …but this is a start.

Nevertheless, here’s our stop in Bangkok, Thailand.


Tha Heua, Laos
