Oh Cambodia, we hardly knew you

IMG_6620Tomorrow we fly to Kuala Lumpur, and then on to Melbourne the following day.

Though we are very much looking forward to time with wonderful friends in both Melbourne and Dodges Ferry, Tasmania, our time in Cambodia has felt all too brief. As I wrote in a recent post (in typical verbose detail), we love this country. I’d come back in a heartbeat.

Riding in a tuk tuk to the Phnom Penh Russian Market today, I felt a little sad that it was our last tuk tuk ride, our last market trip, our last visit to the delicious Blue Pumpkin (a must try if you are ever in Phnom Penh or Siem Reap. Go for the redberry yogurt shake. Delicious!)

There is so much we haven’t posted about during our 17 days here – our trips to Cambodia’s largest waterfall and a Bunong village in Sen Monorom to name just two. So we’ll try to capture the essence of our time here in the photos below. Next post: Aussie!

The Bou Sraa Waterfall is a double-drop waterfall about an hour outside of Sen Monorom along a dirt road
