I took a grand tour of the Asia Pacific region in 2012, a last dash abroad before my vacation time became more limited and locked down. I started in Los Angeles and flew to Palau via Honolulu and Guam. Then, made my way to the Philippines for a SEALNet project in Tacloban, Leyte. I ended the trip with a quick visit to Brunei and Sarawak, Myanmar, KL, Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, and Tokyo. Then, back to LA.
