Holy Mother that was a chore. Both Wordpress and Google Blogger were difficult to steer followers to, unless they registered specifically with those blog sites. Hopefully TravelPod will be as easily found and followed as it was to make this entry.

So quick background; I'm Kristin, I work for a lovely non-profit that has a sabbatical program. Since I learned about the program back in 1994, I knew I'd use it to travel to Vietnam, more on that later. Flash forward 19 years, my Mom Karen, who is a retired critical care nurse, has agreed to come along & this site will serve as our travel journal.

Today was packing day, time to really evaluate the necessity of everything in my bag. We will be taking several short hops via air once in Asia & we recently discovered the Air Asia’s carry on weight limit is 15.4 lbs! Yikes. I’m confident I can fit everything in a carry on size bag, but under 16 lbs? This will be tough! Stay tuned!
