My boyfriend and I were trying to decide
between Bali and Vietnam and your pictures sealed the deal.
I was having a hard time 'getting' Vietnam and Cambodia
from the guidebooks. I was also having a hard time getting
past the images from war movies, etc. I found the spirit
of these places in your photographs and hilarious commentary.
Your site is truly awe inspiring.
I was up til 3:30 looking at your pictures and I am so
inspired. I would never, ever think that I would want to
go to Tanzania, but now I HAVE
TO GO. Thank you for creating this sight and for sharing
with the world your gifts!

Hi! I accidentally stumbled upon your
site. :) I love your photos, they're full of character and
were really funny. I'm visiting Vietnam for the first time
next week, and your photos, videos and entries really helped.
I learned a lot! Especially when it comes to crossing
the street. hahaha! Anyway, cheers! later.

I've thoroughly enjoyed your website,
I'm still trying to get through everything and I'm well
on my way. Needless to say, I'm very jealous and excited
to read about the rest of your trip.
My friend Ryan who's currently traveling in Southeast Asia
for a couple months forwarded your website to me encouraging
me to meet him in Hanoi. It was very, very convincing, more
than you can imagine. I was getting signs everywhere. Unfortunately
for me, I decided I couldn't make the trip. I think I made

Too bad you didn't make it to Hanoi - maybe sometime
in the future. You're probably sick of hearing this but
it really is a wonderful, special place - one of our favorites!
Thanks so much for looking at the website and writing in.
We're glad you're enjoying it. Let us know if you do ever
make it to Vietnam. We'd love to hear whether it lived up
to all your expectations.

OMG!! That video was amazing and the
pictures are spectacular...
I'm going to vietnam in 39 days (and counting hehehe) and

me want to leave for vietnam tomorrow... if only!!
I'm hunting for a new camera for when i go to vietnam and
am wondering about the camera u have... because the quiality
of your pictures are breath-taking.. if you can tell me
the brand and model it would be soooooooo appreciated.

Glad you're enjoying the site,
Jessica - that's great!
So... first off, don't be worried
about Vietnam. It's actually a very pleasant place to travel.
The people are really nice and it's generally quite safe.
About the camera, you can find
a lot of information here: gear_technology.
But it's worth mentioning that the camera is really only
a part of the story. The lenses are very important (in my
opinion, even more important, most of the time). And what
you do with the pix afterwards in terms of cleaning them
up can matter a lot, too (mostly when you're trying to save
pix that have good content but maybe weren't shot in ideal
Most importantly, have a great
trip and enjoy Vietnam!

I made it to the video part when I had
to stop. I enjoyed your pictures of Vietnam very much. They
made me feel as if I were there. I look forward to viewing
your entire site and sending you additional comments. Keep
up your excellent work. Regards to you both.
PS: I really was searching for quail eggs. Somehow I think
it must have been that huge plate of ribs, infront of Susan,
that brought me to your site.
