My SE Asian rollercoaster ride

It’s been almost 3 months since I arrived on the island of Koh Chang, began my teacher training and put away my backpack- the very backpack that I have been living out of for 4 months prior to that, the backpack which holds pretty much everything I own, the backpack which (in fear of sounding…

Don’t skip Phnom Penh

Before arriving in Phnom Penh, I had so many preconceptions I was almost scared to visit. I had heard by fellow travellers that it was really dangerous, not to go out alone, not to go out after Sun down and to watch myself as crime is really rife here. I found none of this to be…

Top 10 destinations-Asia

I’ve spent so long deliberating this list; Joe and I always discuss what our favourite places are and they’re forever changing and shifting positions in my mind. I think I’ve locked it down here…and I’m pretty happy with it. I have loved my Asian travels too much to put into words; the continent is so…

A day in Kep

Kep is a tiny seaside town only a 20 minute drive away from the centre of Kampot. I have no real interest in any more beaches, or eating fresh crab- which is what Kep is known for, so I wasn’t too bothered about visiting . However, Kep managed to seduce me through my love of…

A Kampot guide

I feel like I am finally doing something on this trip! For the past couple of weeks all I’ve done is ‘relax’, I use the term loosely as in reality I’ve not relaxed much at all. I’ve laid on a beach, read a couple of books, swam in the Sea…but I’ve been itching to do…

Paradise in Koh Rong

Koh Rong is the definition of paradise- its long stretches of white sandy beaches and unbelievably clear blue-green sea are like heaven on Earth. Koh Rong is far from being off the beaten track; I’d say it’s pretty firmly on the banana pancake trail, but this didn’t bother me in the slightest, in fact for…

Snooze-ville Sihanouk-ville

I’m feeling pretty uninspired right now, I feel as if I have nothing to write about, nothing to take photographs of…I think I’m experiencing a bit of a writer’s block. The past two places we’ve visited in Cambodia haven’t been great. The first of which was Battambang (I prefer to call it Battenberg); the second…

What Vegan’s eat-Siem Reap

Siemp Reap is an absolute gold mine for vegan cuisine, it’s quite possibly the most veggie friendly place I’ve visited in a long, long time. The thing that I love about the food here is that a lot of it is traditional, authentic Khmer food…and it’s downright delicious. I only visited Siem Reap for a…

Siem Reap-Angkor what?

I’ve been a little apprehensive about Cambodia and have beenΒ fretting over how much I hope I enjoy it. Cambodia is my final destination in SE Asia, I have 1 month to explore it before I officially have to start the daily grind once more.Granted my daily grind will be teaching English in Thailand-but still, no…
