One of the many awesome things about Adelaide is its accessibility.. to exquisite wine regions such as the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and the Clare Valley, remarkable wildlife areas e.g Kangaroo Island and to glorious golden beaches. You are never too far from where you want to go… One minute you are in a vibrant, exciting city; 20 minutes later you are relaxing on a gorgeous beach with a distinctive holiday atmosphere. Yes, I may be a little bias toward the place I grew up, but I do not lie… Adelaide in South Australia is a extraordinary place and I can’t wait to tell you all about it… starting with our beaches.
Vietnam was on my bucket list of places to visit and it didn’t disappoint. My favourite part of Vietnam?… Easy, the people. I found the Vietnamese people to be very welcoming and friendly. Second favourite thing… the food! Delicious noodle soups, meat filled baguettes and fresh wrap-it-yourself spring rolls. During our travels, we spent a lot of time eating where the locals eat, thus we engineered plenty of opportunities in which meeting, and interacting with, the local Vietnamese people was a forgone conclusion. What was not a forgone conclusion however, was how much we enjoyed their company and them ours.
Travelling around Cambodia on a motorbike for near on three weeks was an adventure in itself… eating some seriously crazy food, added yet another dimension to our adventure! We love to travel, we love to eat, and we love to try different foods! We didn’t get to try all the different foods that we wanted to, while in Cambodia, but the following five, I think, are the craziest we did eat. I’ll start with my favourite!
The decision to visit the Choeung Ek Genocidal Centre was difficult. After visiting the Tuol Sleng Genicide Museum I wasn’t sure I wanted to subject myself to another day of misery. But here I was in Cambodia, eating, drinking and enjoying myself. So I contemplated, did I owe it to this country that was hosting my visit, feeding me their delicious Khmer food, pouring ice cold beer and cleaning my room? Should I visit their past and show my respect?
Angkor Archaeological Park is an astonishing place full of ancient temples. The 400 square kilometre archaeological park became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. The park is home to literally dozens of ancient temples in varied condition from complete ruin to well conserved. We visited many of them during our stay in Siem Reap. Four of the temples stood out, each in their own unique way. Angkor Wat is immense, Bayon is known for it’s carved faces, Ta Prohm is only semi cleared of the jungle that encroached it, and Banteay Srei is small, intricate and beautiful…
I’m writing this post, not to tell you why you shouldn’t ride an elephant, but to encourage you to read more about elephant tourism before decide ‘to ride or not to ride’. I’m not an expert, in fact I’m far from it. I’m just someone who made the mistake of riding an elephant before doing the research. I was unaware. I must admit I hadn’t really thought about it. I should have known better, I’m not stupid…
Two nights and three days of awesomeness! Awesome place, awesome people, awesome animals, and an awesome experience! I would do this trip again in a heart beat if given the chance. I loved everything about it. The orang-utans and other wildlife we saw, the delicious food, the wonderful crew, sleeping on an open boat under a mosquito net, the gorgeous sounds of night descending and the raucous awakening of birds, bugs and gibbons in the morning!
