I am not a fish. I was born in May under the sign of the bull, Taurus. I like to hike with my two feet firmly rooted to Mother Earth. Diving does not come naturally to me. If you had asked me only a few short years ago if I would ever learn to dive, … Continue reading Notes on Diving and FEAR
I know I have been a bad blogger lately and have not posted anything since Battambang, Cambodia. Since then I have finished my trip to Cambodia, started and finished (early) my trip to Vietnam, traveled and rented a villa in Ubud, Bali and there is more to come. I promise to complete my previous posts … Continue reading Beyond Bali
Siem Reap - A city built up around the ancient temples of Angkor Wat for the vast sea of tourist flowing in and out, with it’s hawking of wares, tuk tuks, massage, tourist scams and of course, a pub street. We arrived here after a seven hour boat ride in which we were scammed at … Continue reading Siem Reap – The City that Temples Built
I wrote this post while sitting in a slow boat on my way to Siem Reap from Battambang. I got some funny looks from the other tourists around me for having my computer out but since the slow boat ride lasts for about seven hours I thought it to be a good time to write … Continue reading Bada-Bing! Bada-Boom! Battambang!
Depends on what kind of backpacker you are... I was sad to leave Bacoma behind and travel to Siahnoukville. I had been told that it is the touristy area of the coast in Cambodia but was also assured that it was worth a visit for the lovely beaches. We left Kep and traveled, in a … Continue reading Sihanoukville – Backpacker Heaven… Maybe
When figuring out where to stay on the Southern Coast we had the choice between the ocean side town of Kep or the river side town of Kampot. In the end we decided that Kep was more towards our liking and decided to just do a day trip to Kampot while in Kep. I was glad … Continue reading Kampot – Salt, Pepper and The Central Market
Most people come to Kep for the crab and the beach. I came to enjoy nature and the outdoors. Kep has it's own National Park that circumnavigates the mountain top around the peninsula - about 50 square kilometers. It was great to be out of the hectic and noisy Phnom Penh and being the hikers we … Continue reading A Day in Nature – Kep National Park
The highlight of Kep was our accommodations at Bacoma (BAnana, COconut and Mango). It is a beautiful hideaway that is well maintained, clean and very peaceful and no wonder why it has a five star Tripadvisor rating. I have dedicated this post as a review of the beautiful Bacoma guesthouse which was our home during our stay. Kep … Continue reading Bacoma Guesthouse – A Slice of Heaven in Kep, Cambodia
Wow! Cambodia. Of all the places in the world to be, we are in Cambodia. Every time I go to a new country I have this feeling that comes over me that can only be explained as complete awe of where I am and what I am doing. I feel like I need to be … Continue reading OMG! We are in Cambodia!
Today I am sitting on my bed in my hostel room in Cambodia, taking stock of the last week and organizing myself for the next leg of my travels. It’s hard to believe that it hasn’t even been a week since I left Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands. So much has happened. I’ve had three … Continue reading Singapore – A Melting Pot of Wonderfulness!
