I am afraid I have no pictures for this blog, even the feature picture is one from the free picture gallery. But our border crossing from Cambodia to Vietnam was such an interesting experience I thought I would share it. We started out by leaving our hostel on time instead of early as we had … Continue reading An Interesting Border Crossing
Pods, Palace And A Prince
I have already written about some of the less pleasant, but probably more important sites we vitised while in Phnom Penh, however we did do a few other things while they were there which I would still like to share with you. First off, I want to talk about the hostel we stayed in, Eighty8 … Continue reading Pods, Palace And A Prince
After our rock climbing adventure, we headed to Kep to chill out at the beach for a couple of days or so we thought. The place we were staying was nice enough, it was traditional style accommodation in wooden buildings raised off the floor, and much cleaner and well kept than High Tide had been. … Continue reading Beach Days

We visited so many temples while we were in Siem Reap we almost got templed out. Before I go into more detail about the Keep Calm part of my title, with the exception … Continue reading Keep Calm And Angkor On
Sunrise? Wat Sunrise?
The most touristy activity possible in Cambodia is going to watch the sun rise behind Angkor Wat. So after a few days in Siem Reap we gave in and booked a tuk tuk to take us there, leaving our hotel at 4:30am. As we arrived it was still pitch dark and we both instantly regretted … Continue reading Sunrise? Wat Sunrise?
