Relaxen am Strand von Sihanoukville und auf der Insel Koh Rong gleich am ersten Tag, als ich in Sihanoukville ankam, und ich ein Bad im erfrischenden Meer genoss, wurde mir meine Sachen vom Strand gestohlen :-( Die ergatterte Beute war: 1 Handtuch 1 Kapperl 6 Dollar und mein Zimmerschlüssel Gratulation zu diesem erfolgreichen Coup :-P die nächsten Tage verbrachte ich an den idyllischen Stränden von Otis-2 und auf der Insel Koh Rong mit schwimmen, schnorcheln, faulenzen und Sonnenuntergänge bewundern. Denn viel mehr kann man auf einer abgeschiedenen Insel nicht machen.... read more

Hi People, So luckily I was feeling miles better this morning, still had a few stomach cramps but ok to go on the boat trip. We headed down to the Happiness bar to meet the people on the '3 island trip' with us, there was a good mix of Brits, 2 Germans, 6 Argentineans and an Indian family. Breakfast was included in the tour, we both had scrambled eggs in a baguette, with a fruit juice. We then headed out on our dodgy yellow boat complete with car engine mounted on the back, with a starter which was just a hanging wire (just like P&O ships ;)!!!).... and headed about 30 minutes to the first little island, we anchored off the island so we all did some snorkelling. It was the best yet-great coral and some ... read more

Hi People, So today I think is going to be our worst blog so far!!! :( I got up and Vick had been up all night with Gastro so I went to see the guy we booked the boat tour with and managed to get it postponed until tomorrow due to our illnesses!! Thankfully he was brilliant and said it was no problem, also I picked up our Vietnamese Visas so that was two worries off our back. Vick had had stomach cramps and other things all night (i won't go into details), So i left her in bed while I got more water. I had a nice breakfast burrito and Vick managed some toast with nutella, which has stayed down!!! She laid on me on these massive sofas while I read and she watched a ... read more

Merry Christmas Followers and Readers, We got woken up at 3am by our pissed up dorm mates this morning!! (ARSEHOLES), I managed to get back to sleep but Vick couldn't so a bad start :( Vick then woke me up about 7am to give each other presents, (you can't take the child out of the woman :P ), So we had got an amazing piece of art for our house (when we get it), so we agreed on a $5 dollar limit for presents (I thought $10), Vick got me a sweat band which I need as I am a very sweaty man out here, not made for this humidity!! Also she got be baggy thai pants, so comfy; 3 ferrero roche and an arty christmas card to frame!! I was a lucky boy!!! I got ... read more

Hi People, So we finally got to Sihanoukville on the bus, we were dropped off in this dodgy looking bus depot. (Vick was still angry at my drunkness yesterday) We managed to chat to a German and British couple who agreed to share the price of a stupid $12 dollars to our hostel (was meant to be $4 the hostel for all of us!!). Vick haggled it down from $5 each). So our hostel the 'Everythang' is nice, very rustic, all bamboo cladding and beams, the people running it are really friendly and helpful so we are defo on to a winner here!! We are in a dorm with 6 people, our bunks are ok just that awkward height to get out as you drop a few inches which scare you when you're half awake going ... read more

After avoiding what felt like a certain catastrophe, we were finally making our way to Phnom Penh so we could blow through to Snooky. Call us crazy, but the idea of taking a day time bus WITHOUT any signs practically stating “All your shit is probably gone if you end up staying on this bus”, seemed to be slightly comforting compared to our last attempt at leaving Siem Reap. Having said that, we couldn’t help but think to ourselves how surreal it was that we were heading back to Phnom Penh. Had it really been 3 years already since we’d been there? How could that be? Part of us wondered if we would remember where we were, but another part of us wanted to slap ourselves in the face thinking such a tragedy. Don’t even bother ... read more

I had planned a brief stay in one of Cambodia's five star resorts on the coast, thinking I might need a bit of R&R after Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. It seemed a bad omen when I boarded the bus in Phnom Penh and realised that my seat was home to my luggage as well as my butt. The bus itself was packed, as people headed home for the Pchum Ben festivities. Pchum Ben is a fifteen day religious festival which culminates in a national celebration, and this year it's 22-24 September. Cambodians return to their province for the holidays to pay their respects to seven generations of ancestors, visiting temples, and making food offerings. There I was squished into the seat my legs all at odd angles, trying not to impinge too much on the ... read more

My second stop in Sihanoukville stole just a little bit of my heart. There is just something about that sleepy little town that captured my heart. There are small little shops everywhere, happy people, and very angry street children. Even my hostel was full of wonderful people. One of the hardest things about traveling on my own has been constantly having to make friends. However, in Sihanoukville it just seemed to happen. I feel into a group of about 10 other travelers. I only meant to stay one day in Sihanoukville, and ended up spending five. There is just something so comforting of being with people who you just seem to click with. Over our five days we did absolutely nothing. The highlight was me getting my Vietnam visa. Though I didn't do anything that exciting ... read more

it was an early ish start for us on Saturday as the mini bus was leaving at 7.30am, although I was hopping off as i have time. I had set my alarm so we were up in time but when we got up to have showers etc there was no water. Becky had already flagged this up to the hotel people and they were working on the situation. It finally got sorted and everyone got clean and packed and the bus left about 7.45am. I hugged and waved goodbye to everyone and waited for my minivan to arrive, which it did just after 8am There were already 3 people from the UK and 4 people from the states/Canada on the bus. We then drive round the town picking up more people until the van was full ... read more
