Have you been to (or lived in) Asia or just happen to be interested in Asia?

In 2013 I spent over 3 months travelling in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam - absolutely fascinating cultures! It was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream for me, and was a rewarding and enriching learning experience. In 2014 I went back to Thailand and Malaysia, and then spent 3 weeks in exotic Bali, Indonesia. There is much more of Asia that I'd like to discover and explore firsthand. My cover photo was taken at Kuang Si Waterfall near Luang Prabang, Laos.

What do you hope to get out of your 'Friends-of-Asia' Meet Up?

Just hang out and socialize with new friends that have Asia as a common interest. I'm always keen to meet Asians and to learn more about the various exotic Asian cultures. I look forward to sharing stories with everyone about their experiences travelling and living in Asia, and also seeing photos that others have taken.

What do you find fascinating about Asia and things Asian?

Just about everything, but mainly the people, of course!

Introduction

I've been a writer and researcher for most of my career, and am taking an extended break to travel and experience different cultures. I've always had a keen interest in Asian cultures and people, so I'm looking forward to this social opportunity.

What Danny F is saying about this Meetup Group

I've only been to one event so far, but I'm quite sure this will become my favourite meetup group. I really appreciate and look forward to all opportunities to participate in fun and enriching social events with a cosmopolitan group of Asians and “Friends”! Hopefully we will have similar events regularly, as there seems much of mutual interest to talk about and share. Thank you to everyone who is so incredibly friendly, polite and welcoming! Even though I’m not Asian, I feel a deep connection with this group and all of its fascinating and exotic cultures.
