Southeast Asia Journal:
My Journey to Cambodia,
Laos and Thailand

By Susanne Carvin

In November of 1997, I explored Southeast Asia with my longtime travel buddy (and now husband), Andy Carvin. This website is the story of that journey, as well as a collection of photographs and RealAudio files of the world we encountered. The journal is divided into our various destinations and is mapped out on the left side of your screen. When you've finished reading these journal entries, please check out the following websites as well:

Andy's Southeast Asia Diary. Andy's perspective of our trip.

The Children of Southeast Asia. A special photo exhibit of the dozens of kids we met in Cambodia, Laos and Thailand.

About me: I'm a researcher at National Geographic Television, currently based in Boston. Travel is my passion, and in order to learn more about the human experience, I have extensively explored the USA, Europe, Southeast Asia, India, Nepal and the Middle East.
