Wait wait wait

Today we stood in THE LONGEST immigration line ever!!  Going into Thailand from Cambodia at Poipet was insane.  It was organized but so very slow. Our driver came to get us promptly at 7:30 this morning and we wound our way out of Siem Reap to the north.  The road was nice and smooth thank […]

Angkor Wat

Ahhh. Our final day in the tuk tuk seeing temples.  It was wonderful and exhausting.  Wet took us to the biggie, Angkor Wat, first where we tried to avoid the crowds by going in along the side and seeing he famous panels from the reverse tour route.  It is massive and gorgeous.  The kids were […]

Kids day

Bryan was sick all night with food poisoning… Something didn’t sit well.  So, we changed some plans around and I took the kids out. We got breakfast and talked about what to do, and decided on an “animal tour” of our neighborhood, pool time, and followed by a visit to a playland. After taking Bryan […]

Tuk Tukking

This was our long day in the tuk tuk. To break up temple viewing we spent today riding in the tuk tuk out to two outlying sights. It was just under an hour to Bantaey Srei; a small gorgeously carved temple. I know it’s another temple, but it is quite different.  For one,  it’s carved […]

Ho Chi Mihn

In fact our pilot had to go around, which added a half hour to our already delayed flight. bummer…puking Koreans everywhere. We both fell asleep again on the bus home; it was […]

Today we had a liesurely day of shopping and swimming. Woke up to another sunny hot day and read an email from my Dad about snow in PA! Hard to imagine as I’ve been sweating from every pore all day. We had breakfast and packed up our stuff checkout – they stored our suitcase for […]

Tonle Sap Trip

We awoke this morning to a deluge; it was the most and strongest rain I’ve ever seen, complete with lightning and thunder. Powerful. Took our time having breakfast, and hung out at the hotel for a bit waiting for it to let up. Surprisingly to me it was over in an hour. We boarded our […]
