  2. Beth Whitman wrote a blog post Vietnam Travel Tips - Part 1

    Since 1992, I’ve traveled to Vietnam 7 times. While I could travel there another dozen times and still feel like I’m learning about the country and its people, I definitely have some insight into traveling through the region and love to share it."

    These eco-friendly, sustainable homes are completely off the grid. Harnessing solar power and water catchments, they are fully livable units where people are able to grow their own food in greenhouses."

  4. Beth Whitman wrote a blog post The Cost of Travel - Is It Worth It?

    People have laughed at me over the years when I explain that I’d rather find a job on the road to pay for my expenses, than racking up credit card charges and having to pay them off when I return."
