I know that you've been waiting for some news about our book in progress "Where Should I Go in Southeast Asia?" Well, we're super excited to release it too! Here are some updates for you:


Initially, I was hoping to work with Abbey of Le Rêveur. But I got an email from her that she could no longer continue this project as she has a lot on her plate at the moment. Bummer, right? But it turned out to be great thing because I received an email from another artist who wanted to collaborate.

The funny thing is that she is a French girl currently living in Asia. And I'm this Asian currently living in Europe. How's that for a twist?

Marie Pottiez is a travel blogger, founder of Miles of Happiness. Curious of everything, she has an unquenchable thirst for discovery and sharing. Originally from France, she lived in Belgium, New Zealand and Indonesia, before settling down in Hong Kong in 2014. She spends as much time as possible traveling throughout Asia, discovering new pieces of paradise all year long.


You can follow her adventures on Facebook , Twitter  & Instagram. You can also watch her videos on Vimeo and get inspired with her Pinterest.

I chose to work with Marie because she's a super talented artist who's also well traveled and she's been to some countries we've visited in Southeast Asia. I also love that she has illustrated a children's travel book, 61 Days in New Zealand. She's a digital nomad just like me who takes her work wherever she goes.

Here's a sneak peak at Marie's work on etsy:

  1. Southeast Asia travel is one of the best you could ever experienced. It offers holiday paradise destinations that are much more affordable than those on the European countries.
