I love spicy squid stone pot dupabap.
Also, I'm starting to plan a big SE Asia trip this summer. I have to go to India to see family, but after that... thinking cambodia, vietnam, thailand, maybe laos...?
Can probably swing a 1.5-2 month travel period if i play my cards right. I am so excited.
You'll have the time of your life! I liked it so much I did it twice! The first time for 3 months, the second time 2 months, but I also went to Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. 2 months should be plenty of time to see most things in Thailand/Cambodia/Laos and perhaps a bit of Vietnam as well.
Oh, how I miss the long college holidays. Enjoy them while you can. Traveling in college is worth racking up some debt over. Don't spend the money on fancy hotels or food, but stay in cheap hostels, sleep on the beach if it's safe, etc., and save the money for the experiences. You can get by on $20-30 a day, depending on your lifestyle and the season. That'll get you a bungalow on the beach, amazing street food/small restaurants, some thai whiskey and some taxi trips to wherever you want to go. It might be cheaper (and lots more fun!) to rent a motorcycle if you're staying in the same place for a while.
I did it, and I don't regret it at all. I probably wouldn't have the job I have now without those travels, and the personal growth and self-reliance you achieve by traveling solo in your late teens/early twenties is well worth it.
