Fantastic! Where are you travelling off to? I’m currently in NZ and will be in SE Asia for around 6 months. In any case, hope you enjoy your trip 👊🏼


Awesome! Where are you going in SEA? I am flying to Hanoi in two hours and will make my way through North & Central Vietnam, Laos and maybe Northern Thailand in the next two months


Fantastic! Currently planning Philippines in Feb and then very much TBC in March, potentially Laos (never been) and Thailand (would like to revisit). Let’s stay in touch and see if we overlap anywhere
