This MSN list is quite an interesting thing to think about. I'm glad to see Laos on there - and definitely like that Vang Vieng is becoming less popular. I'm sad I've only been to three of them - and two of those are France and Spain, which seem way too close to home to be popular Gap Year destinations. But maybe I'm biased - and bitter about my lack of French/Spanish language skills.
Blog is a bloody stupid word isn't it?
