It had been years since I’d been to Asia for work, and as a digital nomad I knew that the region was a hot spot for inexpensive living, fast WiFi, great food, and incredible experiences. In the fall of 2017 I finally made my way back to Asia to motorcycle tour Vietnam and explore Myanmar. The trip was short, but so worth the adventure. In 2019 I parked my truck camper and flew to Indonesia to spend the winter on Bali. Soon after the world came to a standstill with the COVID-19 pandemic, and I ended up spending several months on a Thai island, running on the beach, enjoying the tropical weather, and eating way too much pad thai.
