Southeast Asia Diary:
Tales of Cambodia, Laos
and Thailand

This website is a travelogue, photogallery and RealAudio archive of my November 1997 trip to Southeast Asia with my perennial travel partner, Susanne Cornwall. Through this website you can enjoy my entire travel journal, which is listed city by city on the left side of the screen. And when you're done with the diary, be sure to visit our other Southeast Asia websites listed below.

One last note: The Southeast Asia Diary has a pop-up dictionary built into it. As you read the diary you'll occasionally see certain words followed by a little red star: That means there's a dictionary entry for that word. Click on the red star and a definition will pop up.
