Jan 29, 2010 - Sihanoukville Vacation

On our way to south Cambodia for a beach vacation more later. We are at Sihanoukville and at a rather pricey hotel ($39) with all the pool stuff, (swimming pool, pool table (OK no hockey pool, but 2/3 ain't bad)) and a huge room with all the bells and whistles. We are chillin' and grillin' and waiting for our Aussie friends to show up and tell us about their $6 room with all we have and more, sheesh, these guys are good! Not saying any names but their initials are Lucy and Dave Nagle, oops. We didn't realize how much we needed this until we...

Long Reach RTW

Jan 16, 2010 - Sihanoukville

Saturday, January 16, 2010 We needed to use tenders to get to Sihanoukville because a cruise ship was using the port for repairs.. It was an unusually long ride getting to shore. The ride to the temple that we’d be visiting would take 3 hours with a couple of rest and photo stops. The first stop at Trapeang Lpeouv had a number of food stands with a lot of children begging to have their picture taken. The children were so happy and so adorable. All the houses we passed were on stilts because of flooding during the rainy season which also...

Nov 6, 2009 - Last day

Today is my last day in Cambodia. I’m lying in a bunk in the female volunteer’s dorm room at an orphanage, Water of Life, in Phnom Penh. This trip has taken me to unexpected places. I’m a bit sad to leave but ready at the same time. I will go to the clinic at “the dump” one more time today. The orphanage houses about 20 teenage boys and on Saturday nights, they open their doors to all of the street children living nearby to have a big meal. I’m looking forward to that…my last dinner in Asia. To say that this trip has been different from my...

A month in Cambodia

Nov 2, 2009 - Beach day

I had a nice day at the beach today. Good food (seafood!) and snorkelling. I met an Australian couple and we visited a temple. Our tour guide had been a Buddhist monk for 4 years. He explained that life as a monk is sometimes the only way for a young boy to receive education if his family is very poor. I'm off to SCUBA for the next 2 days! More when I get back.

A month in Cambodia

Aug 23, 2009 - Bamboo Island

In realtà siamo ancora a Sihanoukville, però la giornata di oggi l'abbiamo dedicata alla visita di Bamboo Island. Anzi, come pubblicizzava l'agenzia, 3 isole in un giorno...anche se poi le altre due si sono rivelate soltanto delle brevi fermate per snorkelare (ma si potrà dire?). Ora, il viaggio in barca è statauna vera odissea...barca cambiata e seconda barca che imbarcava acqua come un gommone bucato. Però alla fine è stato divertente ed il paesaggio era veramente da cartolina. E poi il praznzo, signori quale bontà...bbq di diverse tipi...

Aug 22, 2009 - Sihanoukville

Dove eravamo rimasti? Ah si, avevo detto che un'altra giornata cosi'ci avrebbe ammazzato. Beh, la giornata e' stata riposante, in compenso abbiamo rischiato di morire lungo la strada. Un tragitto pessimo, reso ancora piu'difficoltoso dalla difficolta'di riposare per un bus davvero poco confortevole. Pero' abbiamo superato anche questa e cosi'siamo arrivati nella Rimini cambogiana. Beh, dai, chiamasa licenza letteraria, il mare di Sahanoukville e'sicuramente bellissimo. E'tutto quello che cé'intorno che fa pensare alla famosa...

Jul 14, 2009 - Sihanoukville

Arrived safe, sound and dead tired this morning in Sihanoukville. I'm starting to think that these beautiful "sleeper-bunk" buses are just a myth, since this is at least the second bus we've been promised had sleeper bunks on it and it turns out that the seats just recline a little and you're expected to sleep. So disappointing, and even more uncomfortable. Even Nytols don't help much. I can't even imagine what it's like for people with long legs. So the four of us crashed at 6 am at Beach Road Hotel. Woke up at no idea what time to a...

Mar 25, 2009 - Sihanoukville, Cambodia

We woke up in Cambodia today. I pulled open the curtains and said, "Wow". 50 yards off the back of the ship (our balcony) was a small fishing village that looked to me like photos you see in National Geographic. Now I know where these hundreds of fishing boats are coming from that we have been seeing around for the past day. We heard that Sihanoukville was very small and not alot to see, so we decided ahead of time to make it a beach day. We caught the ship's shuttle bus. The first stop was in town at the market place. We stayed on, but...

Mar 15, 2009 - Seaside Sihanoukville

I headed off on the 8.30am bus from Phnom Penh yesterday and travelled 5 hours south to the beachside town of Sihanoukville via a public bus with air conditioning set to minus 5. Unfortunately it was raining so the drive took longer than it was supposed to and I didn’t get in until 3pm. From there it was a 15 minute motorbike ride in the driving rain to get from the town centre to a gorgeous little place called Serendipity Beach. I didn’t fancy walking around getting saturated trying to find a place to stay so I just went to the first...

Taking the Long Way

Mar 13, 2009 - Sihanoukville,cambodia

ALOHA TO ALL: Sihanoukville is a port no one seems able to pronounce...we're at Cambodia! Remember the rain at Singapore...cancelled deck party? Well, we more than made up for it under balmy full moon & stars night upon leaving Phu My. I even got in the Congo Line!! Haven't done that in years! We toured the deck, people joining & dropping off the line. Felt like a kid again!! But prior to arriving in this 'resort' port, we had a sea day that to share with you. Remember the quilters who are seated near us in the dining room? Well, after Viet...
