Hopes are running high as the departure date begins to come over the horizon, a mere ten days until I am propelled eastwards to a foreign land, thus initiating a surely life-changing experience. All things in need of preparation have been prepared; all we can do now is wait. Our first trip takes us to the throbbing city of life that is Bangkok, Thailand. Regrettably we shall only be experiencing this incredible city for just one day, as we embark on a tour taking us through the nations of Cambodia and Vietnam, soaking in the society, lifestyle and history of these fascinating countries. Personally I look forward to exploring the temples in angkor wat, and witnessing the 'killing fields' in Vietnam first hand. An experience this shall be.
