Sihanoukville to Siem Reap, Cambodia

I just arrived after a 12 hour “VIP” bus ride from Sihanoukville up to Siem Reap. Next up will be visits to Angkor Wat but for now I’m going to relax in my hotel for a couple days.
I booked at the Ree Hotel, a quality 4-star hotel with modern amenities for a very reasonable [...]

Koh Ru was Wicked

Koh Ru has been a magical 24 hour slice of relaxed paradise.  I arrived via a one hour boat ride from Sihanoukville and got checked in where I was excited to be able to upgrade from a dorm room to my own beachfront bungalow for $13.  After dropping my gear in the bungalow I stepped [...]

Bus Ride to Snooky with Funny Pictures

I’m on a bus right now on the way to Snooky (Sihanoukville, Cambodia) and very excited to be on the way! The ride should be a total of 4 hours long and my seat is adequately comfortable. The Cambodian driver is wearing a straw hat “white trash style” and talking on his [...]

A day in Phnom Penh

Cambodia has been a real treat for me so far.  I’ve been relaxing during the days at the restaurants by the river, strolling through the malls in the afternoons and at night hitting all the top venues. 
I’ve been really enjoying some of the food here in Cambodia.  Their western food is also quite good.  Last night, [...]

It’s a Holiday in Cambodia…

I’ve got a song stuck in my head that just won’t go away, it’s called, “Holiday In Cambodia” by the Dead Kennedy’s. It’s lodged in my head because I just left Laos and flew in to the capital city of Phnom Penh.

Flight to Vientiane (the Capital of Laos)

Well my last day in Luang Prabang was spent with my traveling friend Myrna.  After we enjoyed a fantastic french-inspired Laotian breakfast, she rented bikes for us to go riding around the city, and we did.  I think both of us worked up a real sweat but neither of us seemed to mind too much.  We [...]
