Having retired from corporate life they now love to travel at a grassroots level. No more 5 star accommodation.

When his wife, Barbara, suggested a holiday traveling through Southeast Asia for 4 months, Des jumped at the opportunity. To make things more interesting they decided to set some conditions: •Minimum luggage so traveling would be light and easy •A budget of $50 per day for 2 people.

Discover the best places to visit, which bus, train or plane to catch and how to make bookings and save lots of money. The narrative makes it all sound easy – and it was. The result: two leaner, fitter and healthier people, still enjoying being together!
