Well, my name is Andrew Headspeath (aka Deligente when I’m feeling particularly proud of my Filipino heritage). I was born in the Philippines to Filipino and Scottish parents. Since then I've lived in Saudi Arabia, The UK, Vietnam and Malaysia. I’m now a fully qualified journalist (NCTJ & BCTJ accredited), and aim to continue blogging and traveling on the region for many years to come. Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most popular backpacking spots, and my fascination with the place is deeply personal. For me, there’s something primal about this region. It has a buzz, a sense of excitement a rawness you can’t find anywhere else. Perhaps it’s in my blood. I hope that through reading my stuff you can feel the love I have for Southeast Asia.
