the Vietnam visa

the Vietnam visa

Posted from Krong Preah Sihanouk, Cambodia. I had read online that the Vietnam embassy in Cambodia was located in Sihanoukville. Seeing as I had plans to go there I decided to not apply for my visa in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city. Vietnam is one of those countries that require you to prearrange a visa […]

Koh Rong – part 2

Koh Rong – part 2

Posted from Kaoh Kong, Cambodia. While sitting on the beach the day after arriving on Koh Rong, and after a brief evening stroll, two very familiar figures began making their way toward me. Funny. I never thought I’d run into Andrew and Mariela again, but there they were. An American and an Argentinian I had […]

getting to Sihanouk Ville

Posted from Krong Preah Sihanouk, Cambodia. I booked my ticket to Sihanouk Ville the day before I intended to leave Phnom Penh. I had no clue how important this was until I got on the entirely full bus. And I was sitting at the back. Again, assigned seating. So I’m guessing I got one of […]

Koh Rong – part 1

Posted from Kaoh Kong, Cambodia. Well, my journey keeps getting better. I left the sesspool known as Sihanouk Ville and took a 2.5 hr boat ride to an island called Koh Rong off the south coast of Cambodia. Koh stands for island. A van picked me up at the hostel and drove me all of […]

Viva la Mexicana!

Viva la Mexicana!

Posted from Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I had to do it! How can anyone blame me? One of my great thrills since arriving in southeast Asia has been trying the cuisine. I wasn’t always a very adventurous person food-wise. My joy of culinary experimentation only really blossomed in the past two years, but it’s […]

S-21 and the Killing Fields

Posted from Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Day 12 Someone suggested I see the jail first. Then they said I should go to the Killing Fields. To be honest, these were only things I had heard of. I don’t know much about Cambodian history. I had heard of the Khmer Rouge, but to be fair […]

Posted from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Day 6-8 After switching beds early in the morning (to a much nicer bunk in a 32-bed room (with a towel and a blanket) for $2.50/night, I headed to the hostel’s café and had some scrambled eggs and toast for $1. My mission for the day half completed by 8 […]

getting to Siem Reap

Posted from Siem Reap, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Travel guides like Travelfish or TripAdvisor say some sketchy things. Here’s how my day went. Day 5 4:15 a.m. my alarm goes off. The train that leads me toward Siem Reap departs at 5:55 a.m. and I need to get a move on. It’s going to be a long […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
