I was born in Hanoi and graduated from the National University with a degree in Languages. I started as a tour guide and moved into the role of Office Manager for a Danish adventure travel company working in northern Vietnam. I then was a remote field office manager a mining company and moved onto work with MAG, Mine Action Group in Vietnam. I came to Laos with Jim and was the Managing Director for the largest adventure travel company here but was fortunate enough to start Remote Asia and use my years of experience to bring different tours to clients.
Tour Creator/Trip Researcher - James Barbush "Jimoi"
I’m American by nationality but not mentality and have chosen to live here in Asia like many other expats.
I truly love living here and especially riding on and off road
to get deeper into the areas that few tourists get to. I've been to
about 75 countries around the world and am pretty amazed by Southeast
Asia. I'm pretty lucky, Quynh tells me to go riding and occasionally we
have clients that pay me for what I love to do, sweet indeed. In my work experience, I've been in the hospitality industry since 1988 in various hotels, restaurants and travel companies. I've owned a few here and there and a very cool Tex Mex bar in southwest Germany. When I
was back in the States, I was fortunate to work and own a bit of Green Tortoise Adventure Travel and
have brought a little of that spirit here with me to Remote Asia
Travel. I am very happy to have fallen in Love with Quynh and we enjoy
living in Vientiane. I’ve spent over six years riding motorcycle around
Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam to find locations that are remote
and pure. I’ll share most of them with Remote Asia Travel but keep a
few to myself. In the photo above, I'm in out riding in a remote area
of Laos plotting a trip for a client.
Why do we do it?
Thanks, Cam on, Khop Chai Deu, Cheers!
