- Tuk tuk LAYDEEEEE Yesterday morning we decided to have a quiet walk by the river. Close up to the river this wasn't such a good idea. The river was clean, but it was in the bright sunshine and there wasn't so much to Posted by mulliganward in Mulligan-Ward Travellers | Mar 13, 2014
- Nice Day for a White WeddingYesterday as Bill was still feeling unwell, we decided to stay close to the hotel, unfortunately this was too much for Bill and he had to head back to the hotel after an hour and spent the day in bed. Posted by mulliganward in Mulligan-Ward Travellers | Mar 11, 2014

- Sihanoukville and Ko Ta Kiev
Our journey down to the coastal town of Sihanoukville was supposed to be 10-11 hours, but it took more like 14 (this always happens in Southeast Asia!). So we rocked up into Sihanoukville at about 9.30pm after leaving at 7.30am Posted by mattandsusanne in Matt and Susanne's Travels | Mar 6, 2014

- Siem Reap (Cambodia)[center]Oh my night bus!
We booked a sleeper bus from Sihanoukville to Siem Reap (11.5 hrs) from 8pm at $19 each...
After some very poor (but stereotypically Asian) management, we found 2 "beds" together and nestled in for the night.

Gorgeous, elaborate buildings dotted the spotless grounds with large trees and topiaries providing natural beauty to compliment the elegant man-made structures.
