That month we spent on motorbikes
In February 2017, at the start of our trip around the world, we explored Vietnam by motorbike. Starting in Saigon and ending in Hanoi, we chronicle the amazing people, food, and culture of Vietnam we saw along the way.
A year-end update from the End of the World
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Temples, a recovering country and economy, and some pretty great moments with the sun
Thinking of Cambodia, a warm orange glow comes to mind. Its hot and humid air, permeated with the smog of burnt leaf litter and trash at all times of the day, laced with a particularly heavy and thick acrid smell. As a side effect, the sunrises and sunsets are particularly beautiful. But during the day, if you have your helmet visor down tight, the floating ash makes you feel as you are trapped in a snow globe of a lost civilization, rebuilding itself after a troubled past.
Five days in the Land of Smiles
Whoa world. What a week. 😅
We are gearing up for our year long traipse around Asia, Europe, and Africa! We leave San Francisco on January 31st to fly to Bangkok. This week we’re doing motorcycle training so when we head out from Bangkok to Vietnam, we’ll be ready to put rubber to road immediately!
We’ve got a busy month of clearing out our apartment, wrangling visas, seeing friends and family, taking advantage of quiet weekdays on the ski slopes, whittling down packing lists, and ironing out itineraries. We’re excited to flesh this out with our actual travel plans, trials and tribulations of fitting a life in a 50L bag, and what it’s like to convince Russia to let you visit.
