The Oedel Family - Trip to Southeast Asia and Japan





Click here to go to itinerary list

Travelling is learning - about other peoples, their cultures, their way of living and their very dreams.

This trip - 10 weeks in which we will visit Bhutan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Japan - is intended to be a learning experience for all of us. Bill, to introduce him to other ways of life. Marie, to study and meet paper makers and bookbinders in societies where paper and fabric are significant parts of the economy. Myself, to explore and photograph areas of the world that are remote and cultures that are undergoing great change.

We hope to explore and learn much during the next 10 weeks - and invite you to join us for some of the highlights.
