I've been to S.E. Asia five times since 2007 and am planning a 2013 return. I owe this to my son, who invited me, that first year, to travel with him after his junior year study program in Thailand. He served in the Peace Corps in the Isaan province and has done well at mastering both Thai and the Isaan dialect. I included my younger son on a trip in 2011 to visit his brother. This was his transition summer into college and a perfect time to introduce him to this part of the world. I expect to return to Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Burma as well. I am happy to share info about where to stay etc. I've also developed friendships with leaders of an organization in Siem Reap that is devoted to helping the villagers.
