Hey,

I'm going to be heading to SE Asia in late May and plan on traveling around for the next few months. I also consider myself an amateur photographer and taking pictures is one of the main things I am wanting to do. Hoping to find some off the beaten path places to take photos of.

hey jayhawk, that sounds good... off the beaten path is always better! I will send you an email when I arrive to check where you are and if we can align travel plans somewhere around the area. How long do you plan to travel around?

Hey, I checked out your site, great images.

I will be traveling around for up to 6 months. Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, then maybe Indonesia, Malaysia and India. Basically I will be going with the flow with no firm dates. Keep in touch, once you get closer to your travel date just reply to this post and I'll let you know where I am and if you want to meet up somewhere.

Later,
Vincent

We won't be crossing paths (I'll be in Indochina next month), but I'm sure you'll take great photos of southeast Asia; I checked out your blog and I was impressed with your shots. You really have an eye (for travel photography). Good luck!

Hi. I've been to Vietnam and Cambodia a few weeks ago. I might visit Bangkok this December 3. I'm sure you'll have a great time traveling around. I can tell that you'll take amazing shots of the Angkor ruins and the old landmarks of Vietnam. Wishing you a safe trip.

Hey! I will be heading to Thailand on August 17th. Arriving in Bangkok and making my way south to the islands to try some diving until at least the beginning of September. Then heading to Northern Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam through mid October. I'd be interested in meeting up if we're in the same area. My email is amanda.kort@gmail.com.

Happy and safe travels!

Hi,

I'll be arriving in Thailand in October and hope to travel around SE Asia for at least 4 months. Like yourself and Jayhawk, photography will be a big part of my trip (hopefully!).

If we end up crossing paths it would be cool to meet up.

Barry.

Hello!


I am looking at spending August 20-25 in Cambodia, and August 25th until the beginning of September in Thailand. I could also do Thailand for a few days before Cambodia (i.e. from the 13th or so onward). My itinerary for Thailand is completely up in the air :)


About me: I am a 25 year old female from Toronto, Canada. I have travelled solo, but it is always fun to meet travel buddies along the way! I'm currently in Mumbai for an internship and I'll be travelling more of India during the beginning of August.


Please send me a private message or reply here to let me know whether your schedules jive.


Take care!
