Asia is one continent I am determined to explore more. So far I have only been to Singapore and Hong Kong and I loved both. I have my sights firmly set on Thailand at the very least next year. I have been lucky to have had contributions about Sri Lanka from my friend Linda.
Hopefully there are more posts coming about the Maldives (again courtesy of Linda).
If there was one place in Asia that you feel is a must visit where would it be?
I have to say I am very excited at the prospect of spending some time exploring this continent in the future.
