Did our first big trip in 2004 to the UK. We also visited Scotland, France, Italy, Switzerland and Amsterdam.
The next trip was In March 2007, when we travelled to Vietnam via Malaysia. We liked VietNam so much we went back in 2008.
In March 2009 we visited Vietnam for the 3rd time, but also went on to visit Laos and Cambodia. Had a great time everywhere. Spent my birthday at Angkor Wat - what a day!
Aug-Sept-Oct 2010 travelled to UK/Scotland/France and VietNam with friends. Stayed in a mix of budget and better accommodation. We're starting to become an authority on VietNam!

After having done the travel that I've done - I truly believe that if you want things to be exactly as they are at home.....then you should stay home!
