CAMBODIA | Thursday, 15 Jan 2009 | Views [1244]

15/01/2009 The boat ride to Battembang was incredible and I'm so glad that I did it. I had heard mixed reviews - some saying it was fantastic and others saying the boat had to turn around and head back to Siem Reap after a few hours.  I woke up at ... Read more >

From Laos to Cambodia

CAMBODIA | Monday, 12 Jan 2009 | Views [656]

New Years Eve

LAOS | Saturday, 3 Jan 2009 | Views [630]

New Years Eve in Vang Vieng didn't really meet my probably over enthusiastic expectations. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but I wanted to at least have fun. It ended up just being more like a high school dance with young drunk people everywhere ... Read more >
