My 20 Favorite Photos from Southeast Asia

Photo 1 (above): Standing in front of the Batu Caves in Malaysia (June 2019)
For four months after graduation, I traveled to almost every country in Southeast Asia. I started out traveling with friends (Maddie and Caroline), saw family along the way, and then transitioned to a solo adventure. Since the world has been so shut down due to the global pandemic, that period of time is one of my favorite in my life. It was challenging at points, but I worked hard, made ends meet, and saw countries I never knew I wanted to visit.
To showcase these travels, I’ve selected 20 favorite photos to share.

Final Thoughts

In the next couple of years, I hope to head back to Southeast Asia to enjoy the lantern festival in Thailand, a redemption trip to the Philippines, and the two countries I haven’t been able to visit yet in the region: Laos and Bangladesh. I hope to capture some of my favorite memories in similar snaps when I do!
