The following is an account of my recent trip to Thailand and the Philippines. Most of the trip was for martial arts training but we did take some time for site seeing. Some of this is just the minutia of daily living, some of it is tips and things to watch out for when visiting these countries, some is about the places that we visited and much is about the training that I experienced. I hope that you find at least some of it interesting.
You may wonder why I am writing these posts. Since I first started to travel about 7 yrs ago I have found it to be an eye opening and sometimes life changing experience. Besides just wanting to share these experiences with others, it is my hope that some of you reading this will stop with the excuses, get out of your comfort zone, experience life, decide that “Yes, you can do this” and perhaps decide to see the world for yourself.
