Visiting Asia was one of the highlights of my life. My first trip was to Indonesia where I spent two weeks seeing the laidback island of Gili Trawangan, explored Papua and Raja Ampat, and even learned about the traditional games of Indonesia. It was an epic experience!
A couple of years later I went back to Asia on the Holland America Maasdam visiting six countries starting with one day in Singapore, taking a Thai cooking class in Bangkok, and even spending a day in Hong Kong.
My last big trip was to a very different part of Asia, in the Middle East. I spent four wonderful days in Amman Jordan where I learned to make traditional foods like red pepper dip. Exploring the ancient ruins of Jerash Jordan was incredible and floating in the Dead Sea was on my bucket list.
