I am one of a group of five women friends who like to travel and talk about travel. We consider ourselves young seniors and when we get together we talk about our wish list of places to visit. Asia had been on the horizon for years.
We decided on a tour of South East Asia for 31 days and joined a group led by Intrepid Travel out of Bangkok.
The trip was advertised as soft adventure travel – it was very much on the budget side of travel and it called for some fitness, a sense of humor and an open mind in exotic places. We travelled in small private buses, overnight trains, houseboats down the Mekong and two internal flights.
