Cambodia & Thailand. We’re back.

It’s nearly a week since we’re back, stuck in our daily school routine, early wake ups, evening’s tiredness and my new yoga classes fascination(!).

Cambodia for ten days; Thailand, well, actually Bangkok only for four days. Cambodia, its purity, nature and people stole my heart. I can’t say much about Thailand. Probably, I won’t discover anything new by saying that Bangkok is not a good representative of the whole country at all. I’m close to say that I did not like it much, but probably I shouldn’t discredit it, as my enthusiasm was faded by million of tourists wandering the Bangkok streets and nearly 40 Celsius degree doesn’t make things easier when you are stuck in a 6 million people city. We definitely have to go back there; I mean deep into Thailand’s beauty, not Bangkok really.

Phnom Penh

Image

Killing Fields in Phnom Penh. The 1,5 hour walk in silence, while listening to this dreadful story of Pol Pot and the genocide of his own people.

Image

The very common street view, while driving throughout Cambodia, Thailand or Vietnam.

Sihanoukville

Image

Tuk-Tuk ride. On the way to Sihanoukville- our beach get away.

Image

Image

Image

Our very own bungalow. $ 15/night. 30 seconds away from the lovely beach. Cannot get any better than this, can it?

Image

Image

Breakfast.

Image

Need petrol for your bike? No problem. Jameson bottle please!

Image

Siem Reap

Image

Image

Image

Image

At Angkor Wat- the largest religious monument in the world. I wasn’t allowed to enter the temple, wearing a skirt and showing my legs, like anyone cares. Wrapping myself into a huge scarf didn’t help. ” No scarfs, proper clothes”. Like all those hippie-trendy looking tourists wear proper clothes. Not happy then at all.

Bangkok

Image

Image

People with umbrellas always confuse me, especially at the 40 Celsius degree heat.

Image

P. got interviewed by the University students as a part of their English class project. Thai Star!

Image

Walking the Bangkok streets, we encountered something like this, a parade, no clue what and why for.

Image

Ethos, a place to chill out from the Bangkok madness. Very healthy and ethical too.

Image

I found it on the window in our hostel’s room. Quite surprising taking into account that Bangkok is flooded with litter and stink. Send all Thai people and tourists to the prison. Now!

Image

We have seen a big part of the city transformed into the striking camp. We saw some kind of manifest too, but very peaceful at this time.
