A beach on the river bank, Kampot – Cambodia

When we first saw signs pointing down the red dirt road stating “Sabay beach” we were a bit skeptical, to say the least. We weren’t aware of a beach being any closer to Kampot town than the half hour drive to Kep. After speculating for a while, we did eventually decide to go and check […]

We had a very underwhelming talk from a bored member of staff, looked around the shop at the various overpriced pepper […]

Exploring the temples of Siem Reap – Cambodia

The following day, we woke up just after 4am, ready to be picked up by the TukTuk driver at 5am to watch the sun rise over Angkor Wat. We sped through the streets, strange smells hitting us in the face and catching in our throats as we drove passed. H had been feeling queasy from […]

Pub Street, Siem Reap – Cambodia

The taxi weaved in and out of mopeds and trucks at speed. Cambodian traffic is pretty intense, people tend to not really stick to a designated side of the road or wait for enough space before overtaking. We whizzed passed small villages and shacks, naked children running wild and stray dogs wandering up and down. […]
