À propos du livre
Travelling to South East Asia was a very spontaneous trip, made with very little planning. Departing England, the first brief stop was in Dubai, before carrying onto Thailand. In Bangkok, I met some friend, and we started our tour. We travelled across Thailand, navigated the Mekong River into Laos, then onward to Vietnam. We explored the country while making way down into Cambodia, then back to Thailand completing the loop.
With such little preparation, we left most of the planning to the road ahead of us. As my first backpacking trip, I had no idea what to expect, and there was no way I could have imagined the adventure that lay before me.
