Catching up on the past: Cambodia

Continuing the effort to get more of our travel photos online I have uploaded a set from our time in Cambodia (many of which have appeared on the blog during the Cambodia travel entries). Here’s a shot which hasn’t appeared here before, taken on a boat trip in the Ream National Park. Photo by Brendon […]

Day 7 – Wakey Wakey, Sihanoukville, the Beach

One of the buildings we slept in Keryn should write this really, she was better prepared. Anyway, lets just say that by the time I woke up and more to the point got up we the group was about ready to leave. In the light (very bright, why was this?) of day the complex was […]

Day 6 : Spiders, a Shopping Centre and a Home-stay

This worked out OK and after getting our day passes we were soon walking the […]

Day 2: Cambodia, travel to Siem Reap

The next morning we all congregated in the hotel foyer at 7am and then started our journey towards the Cambodia border. We had two vans to transport us to the border, eight of us in each. Our van was very bling, the ceiling was an array of garish lights (thankfully not turned on) and there […]
