Siem Reap – KL – Langkawi

Thursday, 18 Dec 2008 | Views [730]

Caught my flight to KL this morning.   Once at KL, and having made no plans I bought a ticket to Langkawi. I had an hour to kill before the plan left so treated myself to MacDonalds......Man, did it taste good!!! Langkawi is one of a group ... Read more >

Wednesday, 17 Dec 2008 | Views [491]

Tim left first thing this morning....it was strange saying goodbye after having spent so long in each others company and sharing all the experiences Luang Nam Ta nealry 6 weeks ago.   Now on my own again I had a wander around the town, which ... Read more >

Siem Reap – Angkor Wat’s all the fuss about!

Tuesday, 16 Dec 2008 | Views [471]

We’d saved Angkor Wat the largest and the most famous of the temples for today.   We hadn’t planned to see any other temples today as we’d see enough the day before.    Angkor Wat is by size and scale of workmanship the most spectacular.   It is ... Read more >

Siem Reap – Templed Out

Monday, 15 Dec 2008 | Views [574]

We’d hired a driver and his Tuk-Tuk to take us to see the Temples.   I bought a three day ticket   (which I later regretted after getting a bad case of Templeitis)   Our first temple was Bayon....built around 1200ac.   For me, this was probably ... Read more >

Phnom Penh – Siem Reap

Sunday, 14 Dec 2008 | Views [406]

After saying goodbye to Lisa (our travelling companion since the Southern Laos), Tim and I took the seven hour bus trip to Siem Reap.   First impressions of Siem Reap projected the characteristics of a tourist fuelled town, which is of no surprise ... Read more >

Phnom Penh – S21, The Killing Fields, and The Palace

Friday, 12 Dec 2008 | Views [702]

Tim and I hired a Tuk-Tuk and driver for the day in order to see some of the main sites in the city.   Our first point of call was the S21 Prison, formerly a high school converted in August 1975 into a prison and interrogation centre by the Khmer ... Read more >

Phnom Penh – A look around the city

Thursday, 11 Dec 2008 | Views [415]

Bit of slow start of the day which is of no surprise since Tim and I only got back to the hostel in the early hours.   Later went out with Barbara-Jean to have a look around the city.   The city is extremely busy, with mopeds everywhere; a far contrast ... Read more >

Sen Monorom – Phnom Penh (Capital of Cambodia)

Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | Views [510]

Hours of travelling in a mini bus to Phnom Penh took up most of the day today. Once in Phmon Penh, we checked into The Green Lakes Hostel in the Lakeside area of the city.   Strangely enough the hostel is located by a lake, in the backpacking ... Read more >

Sen Monorom - Three on a bike....not a good idea

Tuesday, 9 Dec 2008 | Views [595]

Managed to persuade some locals to lend us their mopeds for the day in order for us to explore the area.   Another waterfall! (Bou Sraa) – a 35 meter double drop into the jungle below.   On the ride back we hooked up with Shaun (an Irish backpacker ... Read more >

Sen Monorom – Elephant Trekking

Monday, 8 Dec 2008 | Views [944]

We had arranged for an elephant trek into the jungle today.   So with two of us cramped into a tiny bamboo basket balance on top of the elephant we slowly made our way into the jungle.   I was only too please to break for lunch by the river.   The ... Read more >

Sen Monorom - A day for doing very little (again)

Sunday, 7 Dec 2008 | Views [453]

Had a relaxing day.   Went to check out the market (Same as every other).   Had my hair cut for 75p, which for three quarters of an hours work, is a bargain.   That’s pretty much it for today!

Banlung - Sen Monorom, Cambodia - Alternative mode of transport

Saturday, 6 Dec 2008 | Views [1538]

An early start to the day as we had to catch the 7:00a.m. bus. (We, being me, Tim, Lisa and Barbara-Jean from NY/LA)  We had a transfer point at Snoul, where we would get another bus to our destination, Sen Monorom.  Unfortunately, there were no buses, ... Read more >


Friday, 5 Dec 2008 | Views [451]

Had a lazy day.  I had look around the market and later chilled out on the sundeck at the guesthouse. A few of us from the guesthouse grabbed a lift off the local moped owners to take us to the lake to watch the sunset.  By this time it had gone ... Read more >

Visited the lake again but this time we’d hired mopeds.   Visited a remote ethnic village.   Pretty relaxing day...they’re getting all too common now!    Tim and I later had a look around the town, and come across a large lake where the locals ... Read more >

Biking in Banlung

Wednesday, 3 Dec 2008 | Views [568]

Hired some bicycles and rode to a volcanic crater lake called Boeng Yeak Loam (or something like that)   We relaxed for a few hours, taking the occasional dip in the clear blue waters to cool off from the midday sun. Tried one of the local drinks;... Read more >

Strung Treng - Banlung

Tuesday, 2 Dec 2008 | Views [400]

The bus ride to Banlung in the Ratanki Province was extremely bumpy as we hit the potholes and dodged the oncoming traffic. It was of no surprise that the rear tyre blew and ripped to shreds!!!    After a check roadside repair we were back on route.... Read more >
