Craigo here - I live in Bangkok, Thailand where there are two types of weather - hot and hotter. Just kidding, we do get a few monsoonal storms every now and then, but by and large, it's an amazing city. The traffic is horrendous, but the food more than makes up for it :-) Some of my favourites are Khao Kha Moo (ข้าวขาหมู), Som Tam (ส้มตำ) and Gang Kiew Wan Gai (แกงเขียวหวานไก่). Translation - Braised pork leg on rice, green papaya salad and green chicken curry. Oh, and at a buck a bag the fresh pineapple sold on the streets is a gift from the gods. My Thai hasn't improved in the last few years, but I know enough to survive over here.
Did I mention the temples? Wife 2.0 would want me to - bless her. Whenever I have too much baht burning a hole in my pocket I head to the bars, sink a few icy cold Leos and watch the world go by, usually with my PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-TZ70 in tow should I see something (or someone) worth snapping. I'm sure one day I'll get my head around ISO, aperture and shutter speed.
I love to travel and being based in SE Asia is great, with many exotic locations just a short plane trip away. Think Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Laos. If you've never been to Vientiane before, head there soon. Trust me, it's a top spot for a few days and then nip across to Luang Prabang.
