Mekong River Adventure Part One; Cambodia to Vietnam

After a week or so in Cambodia, it was time to move on over the border in to Vietnam. There was a couple of options open to us, get a bus across or get a gentle cruise down the Mekong River stopping along the way a few times. The choice was a simple one, the…

Phnom Pehn, Our Next Stop In Cambodia

After a short trip, only 5 hours, in a cramped air conditioned mini bus, passing through several rural Cambodian villages we arrived in Phnom Pehn, the capital of Cambodia. Siem Reap offered so much, it quickly made Cambodia the favourite stop yet on our trip and despite knowing of the sites which we would be…

Cambodia, The First Leg

Cambodia is the place I was most looking forward to on the trip, simply because it was the place I had read most about. Once you start looking into Cambodia, you realise there is a lot more to this country than the temples of Angkor Wat. OK, they are one of the seven man made…

Amazing, We’re One Month Done Already

It’s hard to believe but we’ve been away from home for little over a month already. One month of our seven and a half is behind us. Mental! We’ve seen & done so much it’s been amazing. There’s also been a couple of not so good moments, but these are very rare. It’s amazing to…

Some Sunshine At Last!

Day 18 of our adventure, all is going well so far and we’ve reached the hot places. We landed in Bangkok two days ago and made our way to Ko San Road; our trusty guide book informed us that this is the place to find lots of Hostels. It took us an hour and a…
