October 2003:

The Euro is sitting at 1.20 Euro to the USD. I love Europe. Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, and France were under my belt and I wanted to go back in February of 2004. Airfare is ridiculously high, too high. I want to see Prague, Italy, Germany, Eastern Europe, but can’t justify spending 20% more, at least. (Brief political rant – Thanks for the strong dollar policy GW)

Where to go? How about the other side of the world? Airfare to Thailand, $800. A little prohibitive, but then I check hotel prices. $20 per night with breakfast included. Hell, I can make up the cost of the airfare and hotel to Europe by going to Southeast Asia.

How little did I know that this trip was going to be one of the most life altering experiences I have faced in my 33 years on this planet.

This blog documents my travels around the world. Currently, I'll be travelling to Southeast Asia (Thailand and Cambodia) from November 17th to December 12th, 2004.

As time permits the stories from a previous trips to Thailand (February 2004), Barcelona and Ibiza (July 2003), and Amsterdam and Paris (November 2002) will be added.

This will be easier that trying to send e-mails to everyone to tell them what I've done, where I've gone and the goofy events that have occurred while I'm away.
