In January, 2014, I’ll be heading off for a 3-month trip through Southeast Asia. I’ll spend one month volunteering as an English teacher in a small town in eastern Thailand. Before that, I’ll travel through Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, where I’m especially looking forward to a scuba/snorkeling adventure on a small island in the South Andaman Sea. After volunteering, my son Michael will come to Thailand and we’ll explore Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam together for a couple of weeks. When he returns home, I’ll travel to China to visit some places I’ve not seen before and to visit dear friends in Shanghai.
The trip is still 5 months away but requires a lot of preparation. One thing I’ve been doing is trying to become more proficient at using my new video editor application, Sony Vegas Movie Studio. Toward that goal, I’ve created a video overview of the trip to describe the places I’ll visit and the routes I’ll take. You can watch the video below on YouTube by clicking the play button.
