Hey all,
Well I have been traveling now for 9 months. I have been in Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Burma. Between my travel buddy Jessica and myself, I think we have taken about 8-9000 photos. I have been working in a dive shop on an Island called Koh Tao in the gulf of Thailand for the past 3 months. The Island is one of the best places to learn to dive for two reasons, first off it is the second cheapest in the world to to training and secondly it has some of the best and most numerous dive sites around. I have been having the time of my life and am going to be awfully sad when the time comes to leave; But I miss BC, my dogs, family, Jeep, and all my friends. So coming home will be bitter sweet. I have tentatively booked my return flight for Oct 1. I hope you all enjoy some of my photos I have posted w/ this thread. Let me know if you have any questions, I'll do my best to answer what I can. I can't wait to see you all again have a cold Canadian Beer and wheel the carp out of the old jeep. See you soon .......

I took my Mom, dad and friend to Angkor Wat when they visited me last month

The roads are crazy here ... their version of a highway is a crazy old back road to us. They will drive anything through the middle of nowhere at break-neck speeds and road rules are nonexistent .... tons of fun and I so wish I had my Jeep here. I did one leg in N Cambodia in Toyota Camery with 11 people in the car, 3 were puking in the back, the driver was sitting on some dudes lap and the road was a fawkd ..... good times[36]

[omg]

What gorgeous pictures!!! The things you must have seen... and the pictures probably don't do enough justice. What a wonderful experience you must be having over-seas as well... the culture, the people, the scenery. What an awesome experience...

One day I hope to do what you are doing...
