Rickety Bridge

Hello and happy weekend!

Today’s picture takes us to the heart of Cambodia in a little village south of Siem Reap (known for the Angkor Wat temples, don’t worry, i will post a photo of them soon enough). I was on my way to a homestay, where we spent the night with some very friendly completely non-english speaking people, their three chickens and the pig. From the moment we crossed this rickety hand-made wooden bridge on our bikes, we were swamped by young children all desperate to use the word ‘hello’ and to hear it back sent them into rapturous joy.

If you ever travel to Cambodia or the surrounding regions, i encourage you to partake in a homestay while you are there. It lets you experience the community and get to know the people far better than a stay in a hotel or hostel could ever do, and their hosting is legendary! If you are blond, ginger or a light brunette however, be prepared for a lot of hair stroking. And thats before the kids get involved!

See you tomorrow, where we shall hop over the border for a snapshot of Vietnam! If you want more information on Cambodia, let me know and i can either make it a post soon or get back to you directly. Future posts will cover Siem Reao, Sihanoukville, and Phnom Penh.

  1. Hi, I do believe this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I am going to come back once again since i
    have book-marked it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.


  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with
    the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing,
    it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.


  3. Thank you very much for the compliments! The blog theme is free, it’s called Radcliffe i believe and i just tweaked it here and there to make it a bit more personal. I will endeavour to keep up the writing 🙂
