cycling-in-cambodia-19nov16-102

I decided to move on from Koh Rong. I've never been a beach person anyway, but I was conscious of time and I was looking forward to cycling again. After watching the sunrise, I sat and had coffee whilst doing some writing under the palm trees. Getting my bicycle to and from my room in Vagabonds was anything but easy.…

I awoke to the sound of the sea lapping up the sand below my tent platform. There had been a rainstorm overnight and the air was fresh, I decided to take a walk along the beach. Koh Rong Samloem is the smaller of the two Koh Rongs and is supposed to be far less developed than its' bigger brother. As…

I was awake before sunrise with a heavy head. As the sun rose I was pedalling out of Kampot munching on a baguette I'd bought the previous day.

I awoke to the sounds of countless cockerels in the gardens of the homestay. Breakfast was an absolute delight, with delicious bread, passion fruit, watermelon, tea, coffee, an omelette, and some spongiform translucent cupcake shaped local delicacy. To the latter I tried one but passed on the remaining four. I was sad to be leaving the Nam Thamh Homestay, my stay…

I awoke to the sounds of countless cockerels in the gardens of the homestay. The day started with a noodle breakfast overlooking the Mekong. There seemed to be some cloud cover ahead and I wondered whether it would be slightly cooler today. No sooner had I thought this, the sun burned through the clouds and it was once again, sweltering.…

I flicked the lightswitch next to my bed in the hotel. The light did not turn on so I panicked, not because I was afraid of the dark, but I was on the fifth floor of the hotel and today was my day of departure. I was facing carrying all four panniers bags and my bicycle (still in the box)…
