BRB – I’m Traveling in Southeast Asia

December 4, 2017

Soon I’ll be hopping on a plane to Singapore for a third trip to my favorite travel region: Southeast Asia!

I’ll be traveling through Laos, Cambodia, and if all goes according to plan (ha…) probably a bit of Vietnam.

In some sense, it feels like going back to the well, as I’ve already visited these countries before. On the other hand, I’m so excited for the chance to check out interesting places that I overlooked on earlier journeys. One thing I’ve learned is that even if you think you already know a country, you never truly do—and there’s always a different side to discover.

I’ve also been itching to update some of my Southeast Asia destination pages, some of which were among the first I ever wrote.

This time, I can’t wait to head into Laos’ Nam Kan National Park, explore the Bolaven Plateau, venture into Cambodia’s little-known Cardamom Mountains, and lots more.

If I don’t respond as quickly to comments over the next few weeks, I apologize in advance. I might just be busy traveling!

I won’t be live-blogging the trip (apart from maybe a few social media updates) so that I can totally focus on the journey.

Happy travels, and see you in 2018.

    hey Marek, my comment is a bit off-topic, but hope you could give me some insight 🙂
    I was reading some of your posts and noticed you’re using mediavine network on your site. I didn’t find many reviews about this network, just one that glorifies them quite a lot, which made me interested. so I’d be very curious to hear your experience.
    right now I’m using a combination of adsense + on my site and I feel the cpm could be improved

    ps. we met some time ago in Lisbon 🙂

      Hey Petar, how’s it going? I’m very pleased with Mediavine. The pay is very good, their ad script is fast, and they are super helpful. I agree with all the glorifying reviews 🙂

        it’s going well, right now back home but going for a big trip in few weeks.
        ok, you convinced me to give Mediavine a try! 🙂
        thank and safe travels man!

    No matter how many times we travel to a particular country, everything appears different everytime. Indeed that is the charm of travelling – we get to explore a lot. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.
