Cambodia I'm not having a mid life crisis but thought it was time for me to experience living overseas before I get too old. I'm starting in Cambodia and then see where it takes me.

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 2 Nov 2014 | Views [306]

I have been at the Don Bosco Technical School for just on a month. Things certainly move slowly in Cambodia and I have really only just started serious teaching last week.! The Technical School has approximately 400 students (200 in each year) and ... Read more >

Siem Reap and Learn4Life

CAMBODIA | Monday, 28 Jul 2014 | Views [752]

I came to Siem Reap to teach at Learn4Life – another volunteer NGO which gives young adults/adults a chance to learn English at a very reasonable cost ($20 per semester). I am very impressed with the set-up here. The volunteers have the option ... Read more >

Preah Vihear Temple

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 23 Jul 2014 | Views [414]

Preah Vihear Temple is well worth the effort to go and see. Australia and other countries still have warnings about going to visit the place because of previous disputes between Thailand and Cambodia, but at the moment it is perfectly safe ... Read more >

CAMBODIA | Wednesday, 25 Jun 2014 | Views [298]

Returned back to Phnom Penh after leaving Koh Kong. Very uneventful bus trip (Sorya big bus). Harry my friendly tuk tuk driver in Koh Kong had arranged a front window seat for me which was great. I was a bit dubious about the front windscreen standing ... Read more >

Koh Kong

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 24 Jun 2014 | Views [375]

I was in Koh Kong at the start of the rainy season which is not the ideal time to play a tourist. The plus side is there aren't a lot of tourists around cluttering up the local countryside! I had a very interesting trip as I took a "normal" bus. It ... Read more >

Return to Sihanoukville

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 8 Jun 2014 | Views [686]

After my 3 months in Sen Monorom I decided that I needed a break and somewhere that I could get some good food for my body - away from all the MSG. Sihanoukville has a good supermarket so I got cheese and yoghurt along with Aussie muesli - oh the ... Read more >

Ban Lung

CAMBODIA | Tuesday, 15 Apr 2014 | Views [1506]

The second leg of the school holidays in Sen Monorom I spent in Ban Lung. Lots of waterfalls around the area but the town is very spread out and apart from the market area there isn't really a lot on offer in the town itself. It was however a very ... Read more >

Travelled by luxury this time (4WD) which was probably just as well as an hours journey each way on the back of a moto in the dust may have been a bit much! Foregners pay $1.25 entrance fee and this goes towards maintenance of the park. I was very ... Read more >
