Biographical Info:

I love south-east Asia. Cambodia (3), Laos , Burma (2), Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia where I've been several times. Next destinations will be PNG, and Papua Barat again, Burma. I would probably move there if I would have a job there. Art, religion, history, culture, people, food, photography and scuba are my main interests.
