A Video Trek Through Southeast Asia

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re big on starting travel groups on sites we like. Jon started up our flickr group for us a little ways back for photos, and I started a travel video group on Vimeo, aptly titled: “Travel Videos” (it was a less than creative day for me that day, give me […]

Not A Typical Day In Cambodia

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I have yet to meet a person who is not fascinated with Cambodia.
