Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 10

14 September - Phnom Penh - Chau Doc (Vietnam) Wake up around the time the sun comes up, and as that happens, the usual street sounds can be heard.  Tuk tuks, bikes, cars, horns, and even some guy giving his angle grinder an early work out. And then there was the kind and considerate person … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 10

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 9

13 September - Phnom Penh Slightly quieter night than the previous one, although I did hear that woman screaming out what seems to be her mantra, a couple of times. I’m not really sure what’s going on there, and I’m not sure I want to know, anyway. Awake a bit after 7.00am, but just can’t … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 9

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 8

12 September - Phnom Penh Slept alright, and things were reasonably quiet throughout the night. Except for the woman who screamed out “(expletive) me!”, four or five times, over three separate occasions. Well, that’s what it sounded like. And then there were the howling dogs at one point. So yeah, perhaps I didn’t sleep that … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 8

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 7

11 September - Siem Reap - Phnom Penh   The alarm goes off at 5.40am.  Which it didn’t really need to, as I was already awake waiting for it. It tends to happen like that, when the early start follows a not so early night; well, not as early as I promised myself. I think … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 7

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 6

10 September - Siem Reap   Awake around 7.30am, and even though there is nothing that we really need to be up for, we get organised to try and make the most of our final day.  Slept alright, and while I heard fairly steady rain throughout the night, it’s not raining at the moment. Which … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 6

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 5

9 September - Siem Reap   Wake up around 7.30am.  I actually managed to sleep through the night!  And there were no more mad rushes to the bathroom. But now, how do I feel? While not great, I’m actually feeling kind of okay.  A little fragile, perhaps, but not too bad. Certainly better than I … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 5

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 4

8 September - Siem Reap Alarm goes off at 7.00am.  On a Sunday!  And we’re about to embark on a second day of visiting temples. Seriously, what’s happened to me….. Feeling okay, but a perhaps a little drained, we head out in search of breakfast.  Our target food, partly because it was pretty good, and … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 4

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 3

7 September - Siem Reap   Up just before 7.00am to get ready, I suppose, for the main / real reason we’re actually here in Siem Reap. It’s something Lisa really wants to do, and it’s something I probably have to do, seeing as we’re here. Don’t get me wrong, I want to go see … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 3

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 2

6 September - Kuala Lumpur - Siem Reap   As scheduled, we arrived in Kuala Lumpur around 4.30am.  Landing on time is always a good thing when it’s a relatively short stopover. And the sleep thing? Actually managed to get a fair bit, which was nice. Maybe it was because there was a vacant seat … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 2

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 1

5 September - Melbourne   Well, the day is here.  After booking the flights way back in March; after knowing the trip was going to happen probably six months before that; the 5th of September had finally arrived. And the fact that there is actually a Trip Report 1, means that yes, Lisa’s recovery went … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 1
