Beginnings of my Solo Travel Adventures

So the first time I experienced a true solo travel experience, apart from of course when I decided to move to China to live and work alone, was last January/February 2016. I'll never forget it. I went traveling to South East Asia; Bangkok>Laos>Vietnam>Cambodia>Bangkok and then back to Shanghai, or at least that was the plan. In fact, originally my trip was planned with a work friend of mine. We both wanted to travel South East Asia for six and a half weeks so we thought why not join up?
