We’ve been lucky to travel quite a bit, and continue to do so. Between Trevor and I we usually end up in 10-plus countries in a year. Last year was quite a bit more. And, just like you, we’re getting older, one day at a time. While reminiscing over a couple cold beer about trips we’ve enjoyed, we decided it was time to share a few of our noteworthy Asian trips that still resonate. So, buckle in, and get ready to travel with us on Our Favorite Asian Adventures.
Trevor: Trevor tells a tale from his first trip to Thailand in 1996 when he visited Khao Yai National Park in search of wild elephants at night, on foot, only to find out the next day that it was a great way to get eaten by rogue tigers, which he then proceeded to almost do!
Scott: Scott talks about cycling to Tibet base came in 2006, a physically challenging adventure that culminates with a Pabst Blue Ribbon at Everest Base Camp.
Trevor: After heading south from Thailand on the same 1996 trip described earlier, Trevor talks about his adventure on the Indonesian island of Sumatra where he experienced some of the most intense and interesting culture shock of his life—and orangutans!
Scott: Scott follows up his earlier tale of physical challenge with another, this time hiking and biking Mae Fah Luang, Thailand with Greg Wilson in 2004.
