Thailand, Camboda, Vietnam and Singapore

In November I went on an amazing holiday in South-East Asia. I thought I’d share a few photos from the trip.

  4. Welcome back.
    Thanks for sharing these amazing pictures with your readers.

    I discovered your blog during your hiatus and I’m happy that you are back to blogging.

  5. Great pictures. Did you really eat the Tarantulas? I went to Cambodia too but I don’t think I was as brave with my food as you were!

  6. What a wonderful time you must have had. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. I’m super jealous. But I agree with Nymeth – you can keep the fried tarantulas.

    Welcome back!

  7. I’m so glad you’re back! I’ve missed your posts! Looks like you had a great time, though πŸ™‚

  8. You ate a fried tarantula? Ok, in my opinion the only good tarantula is probably a dead-and-fried-into-oblivion tarantula but I’m pretty sure they would still wig me out! Definitely could not eat one! That is hardcore!

  9. Thanks everyone for the welcome back!
    Yes I really did eat the tarantulas! They didn’t really taste like anything other than the soy sauce they were fried in and the dipping sauce. But they had a really crunchy texture. I also ate two different types of snake and fried red ants. πŸ™‚
    I’ll post some more photos later on. πŸ™‚

  10. Wonderful to have you back, Dominique! Thanks for posting some beautiful pictures! The Angkor Wat temple looks so beautiful! Do they really serve friend tarantulas?? I can’t believe it! Halong bay is so beautiful – so divine! Looking forward to seeing more pictures of your trip! And were you able to make that trip to Vanuatu?

  11. I’m a bit late with this, but Welcome back, Dom! πŸ™‚ Looks like you had an amazing time, love the pics. And fried tarantula legs? I need to visit Asia at some point πŸ˜‰

    And Merry Christmas, hope you’re enjoying the holidays!
