I've been asked a few times what has been my favourite country i've travelled to. I find this a hard question to answer so my reply is a little all encompassing: I have enjoyed every country i've been to in different ways.
In Northern Thailand I loved wandering into temples, soaking up the reverence of them.
In Laos I enjoyed travelling on the rivers, taking the slow boats from village to town, seeing life unfold on the banks of the Nam Ou & the Mekong Delta.
In Vietnam it was the people. From the shy Vietnamese on the train saying hello and asking what my job was to the students who wished to prcctice their English.
In Cambodia I enjoyed the Temples, they are by far some of the best temples I have seen and explored.
In Myanmar i loved Inle Lake, it was beautiful. A lake framed with moutains where fisherman use their legs to paddle whilst they cast and gather fishing nets. I also enjoyed the trains!
Back in Thailand and this time I enjoyed a slower pace, from finding little hidden cafes offering gems of cappuccinos to sandy beaches and monkeys!
Overall the thing i've enjoyed the most has been the people i've met and the friends i've made. Thanks for a great travel time xxx
