Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 18

22 September - Soc Trang - Saigon   Awake around 7.00am, and I feel good.  Well, health wise good, but not overly good knowing that we have one of those dreaded goodbyes that needs to be done, this morning. Not to mention that five hour bus trip, as well….. And just like the night before, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 18

21 September - Soc Trang   Slept really well, and didn’t wake up till it was light.  But it probably wasn’t the light that woke me up, more some kind of chanting, or perhaps a Khmer call to prayer???, being played over a loudspeaker.  Not really sure. It went on for a little bit, and … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 17

20 September - Can Tho - Soc Trang   I actually get woken up by the alarm, which doesn’t tend to happen that often. It’s kind of nice, as it usually means that I had a good night’s sleep, which in this case, was exactly what happened. I only got up once during the night, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 16

19 September - Can Tho   Awake at 7.30am; a little bit of a sleep in, I suppose. The process of then figuring out how I actually feel, begins. And through the haze of just waking up, a realisation hits me. I feel good.  Like, really good! Finally, after a week, it seems to have … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 15

18 September - Can Tho   Alarm was set for 6.45am, but as often happens, it wasn’t required.  Awake at 6.30am; oh well, close enough. Actually slept okay, and now, as I lay there, I await the usual signs from the past week to tell me I don’t feel that good. Headache from last night … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 14

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 13

17 September - Chau Doc - Can Tho   Awake.  Again. But at least this time it’s reasonably light outside. However, it’s still only 6.00am, which means I’m awake a bit earlier than I wanted, or needed, to be. While some sleep was achieved, there were certainly lots of times that I woke up during … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 13

16 September - Chau Doc   Wake up about 7.00am, and I guess the good news is that I did manage some sleep. But geez, waking often, and either feeling hot, or cold, coupled with bouts of profuse sweating, and then dealing with a nose running like a tap; it wasn’t heaps of fun…. So … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 12

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 11

15 September - Chau Doc   I wake up a bit before 7.30am.  Which is good, on two counts. It means I actually got some sleep, and it also means I’m still alive. It was a rough night, though. Fortunately, I suppose, it was all about the high temperature and the just generally feeling like … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 11

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 … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 10

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
