Got the Bug!
Ever since my trip to Costa Rica 4 years ago, I have the itch..that is the travel bug. My next main trip that I want to do is Asia, in particular Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Japan.
I believe that one can travel a lot on a little. I have no problem staying in a far from 4 star hotel, and eating VERY simply to make the trip last longer. I love doing as the locals do, or eat or drink where ever I go. Thats the real way to see a culture. When you make friends with the locals you can see things you would never know to look for otherwise. I believe in being humble, gracious and observant when visiting a foreign country. Watch how people communicate, how they interact. I want to blend in with the locals, honor their ways of life even though it may be strange and different to me.
