My latest travel fascination has been the beautiful and mysterious South East Asia. Australia, being the isolated country it is, makes it rather difficult to get over and explore all the wonders of Europe. Luckily we have countries such as Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia (the list goes on!) right on our door step. Literally less than 5 hours flying time away.
What I love most about traveling is learning more about the world and your place in it. Seeing different ways of life, unique cultures and meeting the beautiful people of this world. I love learning from strangers, foreigners… those who’s life is so different to your own, yet so similar. They may work different jobs, live in different homes, have different families and have a different perspective on life, but at the end of the day we are all human. We all want to love and be loved. We all have a desire to love and be loved. To find a soul mate and grow a family. To make our friends and family proud. To impact this world for the better.
And I love seeing how this plays out across the world in off-the-grid locations, and how foreigners make the experience of life unique to themselves.
Oh how good is traveling! This has always been one of my favourite travel quotes and I’m not sure why…

Here are some places I’m keen to explore and become immersed in within S.E.A:
