Following. Same boat.

I have buddies who are pilots so I have had the chance to bounce around a good deal. Like M1 said, It truely depends on what you wanna do/see. Describe the experience you wanna have and myself, others could certainly offer some insight.

Been to Prague. Thinking about going somewhere with a beach (maybe South America) or just a chill locale to unplug a bit, see sights, take in the culture.

Will look into SE Asia for sure - thanks for the suggestions

Booked trip to Thailand. Plan is to start in Bangkok, then go up to Chiang Mai, and then head over to Vietnam (Hanoi). I have about 24 hours in Hong Kong before my flight back to the states as well. Looking forward to this. Any suggestions for lodging or things to do / be aware of are welcome...

Anyone know much about routers?
