We’ve been traveling for nearly four weeks now and we still have just under three weeks until it’s all over. We’ve realized that sometimes you have to do nothing.

We Have A Phobia Of Missing Cambodia | SE Asia #018

It was a short six days but a memorable six days.

It was a short six days but a memorable six days. We regret not doing more research beforehand about what a great country Cambodia is. We would have stayed longer and perhaps seen more of the country instead of seeing it as a thoroughfare between Vietnam and Thailand. Alas, we can only learn from our mistakes and we’ll definitely return one day. And even still, there is a lot to take home with us:

Learning From The Cambodian Genocide | Phnom Penh | SE Asia #015

The 1970s. Voyager I showed us the first glimpses of Jupiter’s rings. Pierre Trudeau was Prime Minister. Video tapes and VHS were first being released. People were watching Jaws and listening to Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, Silly Love Songs, and Bohemian Rhapsody. But in Cambodia, the Khmer Rouge were committing genocide and most of the world had no idea.

The Arduous Journey From Vietnam to Cambodia | In Transit | SE Asia #014

We are what we refer to as ‘bouj-et’ travellers, where budget meets boujee.

We are what we refer to as ‘bouj-et’ travellers, where budget meets boujee. There are things we like to splurge on (like speakeasies or theatre tickets), but in order to do that, we have to save in other areas. And that is why we ended up spending fourteen hours trying to cross the Vietnam-Cambodia border.
