  • I want to run away to the circus Another morning run, this time earlier and we watched the sun come up. Evan met some locals playing an unusual game sort of like hacky sac crossed with badminton.

  • Battambang - what a cracker of a town!Battambang is a fairly quiet town and upon first glance the streets seem sleepy and sedated with not a lot to see or do. Look beyond this however and you will be rewarded with a delightful town that has so Posted by Evalikat in Honeymooning | Jul 23, 2015
  • New Hope CambodiaAs we left Cambodia, we were searching for the reasons why we fell in love with the country.
