This was my first time attending the NAB Show, it’s mostly big budget movie and TV type gear, but there were some consumer products. It’s similar to CES but without the million cell phone case sellers.
The week before our 3 week long South East Asia trip, I spent 5 days in Dallas for work.
We spent 5 days in Northern California working, drove from Southern California up the 101 to stop by Jocko’s Steakhouse, my favorite steakhouse.
After a nice dinner with Eric and Cindy, we made our way to the Hanoi train station for our 6 hour overnight ride to Lao Cai, then a car would pick us up and take us up the mountain to Sapa.
Originally we were going to do a two night Halong Bay cruise, but decided to add Sapa to our itinerary, so we shortened our stay in Hanoi and did a one night cruise.
We finally got to meet up with Eric Kim and his wife Cindy, they moved to Hanoi about 6 months ago.
We spent three nights in Ho Chi Minh in District 1, in the Little Tokyo area.
We only spent two days in Siem Reap, there’s tons of temples, but we figured we would see a few of the most famous ones and move on to Saigon.
We finally made it to our hotel in Chiang Mai just before midnight, slept well and headed out for our first of many coffee shops.
Joel and I few from LAX to the Seoul Airport, we had a 12 hour layover and took advantage of the free tours at the ICN airport.
