When I run out of things to say (which is rare), my go-to conversation starter is telling people that I have three Asian aunts. To which they reply, “Really? But you don’t look Asian….” Their bewilderment gets me riled up every time. I sarcastically reply with a smart-assed smile, “ Why yes, born and raised.” While I do in fact have three aunts that were married into the family, the embarrassing fact is that I’ve never been to any of their home countries. To kick-start my eventual plan to travel to Asia, I’ve compiled a varied set of tracks from the Eastern and Pacific regions.
