Japan is number one on my destination list if I ever start making real money


Had a friend/acquaintance live there for two years studying and I think teaching English. The photos he posted on FB were unbelievably beautiful. I've wanted to go ever since

Vietnam war eh?


Yeah, I question his sanity for enlisting, not drafted, in 1968 and volunteering to be a doorgunner on a huey gunship. He was in Phu Hiep for those wondering.

Then again I did three times the amount in combat and I was infantry. Not scared of flying but i much prefer to fight on the ground.

Spent a week and a half in Indonesia, one day in Singapore. Recommend Singapore. In Indonesia I was in Jakarta working, had a great guide and saw some great markets but not sure if I'd be all I to returning.

I've been all over SE Asia between 1974 and 1989. Unfortunately, 1989 is a lifetime in the past compared to what it is now and I probably can't provide any information that is accurate to today's Far East.

 

Jakarta was fun, Singapore was a blast as is Thailand. Hong Kong back in the 70's was one of my favorite places to visit. When poo started getting serious in the Middle East around 1978-1979, it became more difficult for the Navy to make many port calls in the Far East, opting to bypass to get to the North Arabian Sea quicker.

probably just want to stick to Thailand mostly. No interest in Malaysia, Philippines, etc, unless there's just something there that can't be missed. 

 

Will definitely be doing ankgor wat, and I'd love to travel north to see ha long bay as well, but don't know if it's worth it. maybe just a trip into HCMC.

I can speak/understand like 10 words in Khmer (Cambodian). Will make my way to Ankor Wat one day for sure and visit my girlfriend's family in Cambodia. 

 

 

That's all I got.
