Mike and I are now traveling on our own, after our whirlwind tour with Road Scholar, through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. And what a tour it was!
My blog couldn’t keep pace with our activities and even now, this summary will only provide a taste of those incredible 20 days.
Here are a few of the many reasons I love Road Scholar.
Road Scholar made contributions on our behalf to the two village schools and hospital we visited.
While traveling in Cambodia a few years ago, the Spitlers asked their guide to suggest a worthwhile project. The end result was this village school.
Prior to the Spitler School, children in this village had no opportunity for education.
JAW DROPPING EXPERIENCES
And of course, the many Buddha images in Laos and Thailand were unforgettable and impressive.
Fantastic experiences are even better when shared with like minded companions.
I’ll give your eyeballs a rest, and stop with the photos.
You’ll just have to take my word for it, this trip was AMAZING!
I am intensely curious, with a spirit of adventure that is tempered by my very strong aversion to anything with potential to cause pain. I love travel, photography, reading, gardening, yoga, music and propelling myself through space (biking, dancing, walking, dancing while walking). I've never considered a lack of proficiency in any of the previous activities to be a hindrance, counting on abundant enthusiasm to make up for my shortcomings.

2 weeks with global volunteers after Mike leaves. I just learned the school only has squat toilets. Good thing I brought skirts!
Too bad the weather in Hanoi isn’t as great as in HoiAn
