Since I am about to send out the link to this site, I thought I should post a bit more about what I will be doing over the next couple of months. Next Monday (December 27th) I leave on a 2.5 month trip that will take me to Hawaii, Thailand, Cambodia and <possibly> Vietnam. All places that I have never been before.
I'm hoping that this journal will serve as a means to update my friends and family about my travels. Perhaps not as personal as postcards/letters, but hopefully my writing and photos will be a bit more timely and I can include more than would fit on your normal postcard... ultimately, I'm hoping that will be a good thing.
In any event, for those who want to follow along, here's the schedule as it currently stands:
December 27th: Depart for Hawaii
December 27th - January 3rd: Kauai'i with Christine's family
January 3rd - January 7th: O'ahu with Christine
January 7th: Travel to Bangkok (via Tokyo)
January 8th - February 18th: In and around Thailand (based in Bangkok and taking classes at Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration - i.e. Bangkok Business School)
February 18th - 21st: Angkor Wat (Cambodia) with Mom & Dad
February 18th - March 9th: Further travels in Southeast Asia (most likely Vietnam)
When I arrive in Thailand, I will be with 6 other students from Fuqua (as well as a number of UNC and Kellogg students) and meeting up with Marc Lefkowitz (who is living Bangkok for the next couple of months). My parents will be in Thailand for ten days starting February 11th and I will travel with them to Cambodia once my classes end. If anyone else happens to be cruising through Southeast Asia, be sure to drop me a line!
