Sawasdee and xin chào!
My name is Paul, and I’m going to be your guide through ten weeks of incredible travel in an amazing part of the world – Southeast Asia! We’ll be starting in Bangkok and making our way through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia. We’ll cross rivers, islands, forests, caves, and a few massive cities. We’ll eat all kinds of delicious food as well: rice, noodles, curry, salads, fruit, and maybe some deep fried insects!
I’m originally from Washington, DC, USA, but I’ve been living in Asia for over six years. I am based in southern Vietnam, where I run an international summer camp program for children and teens, and I’ve also spent time working as a surfing instructor and music teacher in New Zealand. I’ve traveled all over the globe, and lived in the Philippines, Morocco, Russia, Finland, and Australia – I’ve got some great stories to share from each of those places.
I’ve been working in education for more than ten years, and I love to help people learn. I am here to help guide you every step of the way. I believe that travel is a unique way to grow and change, and I’m excited to meet you all and join you on this adventure. Bring an open mind, an adventurous spirit, and everything on your packing list.
