Kaladkarin in Backpacker Mode Across Southeast Asia

7-14 July 2008
Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Siam Reap (Cambodia) and Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam)

Marking my first overseas leisure trip. To say that this trip was life-changing is like saying that I have my mom to thank for bringing me into the world. Witnessing wonders such as the Angkor Wat is a blessing that I couldn’t fathom taking for granted. Cliche as it may be, words are definitely not enough to describe the experience; I’ll let the video do the talking. There are also links below the vid to prove our shameless camwhoring across SEA. 🙂
