In 2 1/2 weeks, Ryne and I will be leaving on an exciting  journey to southeast Asia. We will be gone for 5 months as we travel to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and possibly India! WHY? Much can be learned through traveling and we want to support local communities through eco-tourism. The more people that visit wildlife conservation areas, the more likely people will realize that leaving forests intact is profitable because naturalists, like us, will pay to see it.

We plan to explore several national parks and other natural area to soak up as much natural history knowledge as possible. We also plan to volunteer on a local organic farm to learn about the culture, and I would love to learn how to cook authentic spicy asian cuisine.
