Hello everybody, I’m Noah. I’m a fan of history, technology and photography, among other things. I really enjoy visiting new cultures and learning their histories.

I’ve studied recent Southeast Asian history in school, but I’m eager to learn the region’s history ‘on the ground’, and traveling the historic Mekong seems the ideal way to do this. I look forward to learning about this area in depth, and in a way that can give me a unique perspective going forward.

Overall, I hope to learn more about the world, myself, and how to travel better, and along the way make some good friends. See everybody soon.

Here is quote from one of my favorite writers John Steinbeck:

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
