As you can probably tell, I had a thing for Thailand and Cambodia.
These shots were taken in Koh Tao, Bangkok, Sihanoukville in Cambodia, and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
I was carrying everything I owned in my Jansport Odyssey, a 39-liter King of Backpacks. While other backpacks ripped and fell apart, the Jansport is with me to this day. For the first few months of my travels, it held everything.
This included my:
- Canon 60D
- ASUS 14-inch laptop
- 2-3 changes of clothes
- My Kodak Zi8
- An electronic Japanese-English dictionary
- 2-3 notebooks
- My travel tripod
- A poncho & raincover for my backpack
- And much, much more
It always blew my mind to see people carting around giant body bags and stuffing them into the local tuk tuks.
