Southeast Asian Tour

     For the first 22 years of my life, summer time meant vacation. That's 2 months of fun-filled activities, cool workshops, a time for personal projects, bumming and travelling.

     Now that I'm working, I still find it hard to believe that the 80-day long vacation is over. So just to continue the tradition, I saved up all of my VLs to spend it on an 18-day long vacation travelling to 5 Southeast Asian countries.

     I have lots to share on this trip and I will do it in detail on my next posts. But for now, I’ll just share some of my pictures.
