    What episode of Doctor Phil were you on?

    How do you travel with a computer? What troubles have you experienced? Also, do you travel with a DSLR camera, if so what is the best way? Do you bring just one lens? How do you pack each of these?

    Sorry I know this is a lot of questions but I appreciate your response!

    I love reading your blog-it has proven to be very successful. Also, I am traveling to Guatemala this month too. Hope you have a great trip.

      Glad you enjoy it.

      I actually don’t carry a computer with me while traveling. All of the stuff I’ve written is after the fact. I figure, I’d rather spend my time doing stuff instead of writing blog posts (which can suck up a ton of time).

      In regards to the camera, I’ve usually gone with just one lens, a small 35mm fixed. I’ve got a bag that slings around my shoulder.

      Hope this helps!

    Hi Paul,
    I just incidentally read your comment on the article “Why I’ll Never Return to Vietnam” by Nomadic Matt.
    I felt really sorry for you about such a terrible experience you had in a restaurant in Nha Trang. I totally understand the feeling of being ripped off as well as not being treated like a human, especially as a tourist. It was also an embarrassing surprise that there were 2 different types of menu in a same restaurant! As a Vietnamese, I truly apologize to you.
    Just to let you know that I’m currently an international student in the U.S and my tuition fee is simply three times higher compared to an American citizen’s one.
    No doubts, there was nothing different between the dishes that you were served and other ones. And I guess I am getting exactly the same education with American citizens.
    You could say I’m supposed to be rich enough to come to the U.S for education, and because of that I shouldn’t be complaining. Well I am not, but I would come up with the idea that, “Then you must have been rich enough to make an oversea vacation, don’t you think? ”
    Imagine how simple it would be if we all though of it as a political issue? That it’s just the country government’s policies? If the U.S government charged its non-citizen students that much, should the Vietnamese government have the right to treat its foreign tourists like that?
    You were pissed off because you were made to pay some more dollars to somebody that had little money than you? I am enjoying my life in the U.S.
    Anyway if you had a chance to come back, hopefully you would take it. And good luck!
