Cambodian Kickboxing and Phnom Pen Traffic – Photos

Just got another couple of photo galleries up. Kickboxing Match in Phnom Pehn Traffic in Phnom Pehn

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Arizona.

Arizona? That’s right, not exactly, but it is true.  A few years ago on a trip to Scottsdale, AZ to visit my friend Chad’s father, I had a conversation with his fathers girlfriend. Chad and I had driven down to AZ to purchase a boat and tow it back to Colorado.  We were in a Jeep […]

Where in the world are the trucks?

Although our interactions with the border guards on Monday gave us a feeling of comfort leaving the trucks at the Cambodian border, some second thoughts of course still existed.  Is it safe to leave our cars at this border? The main immigration officer that we were dealing with told us it would be okay to leave […]

Heartbeat of Cambodia

Phnom Penh. The capital city of Cambodia. It is without a doubt one of the most interesting cities we have been to yet. It is a city full of life, culture, history as well as intrigue and mystery. A lot has gone down in Phnom Penh but from the looks of it, the city has a […]

3 more days

Cambodia has been a wonderful time.  I really do not want to leave this place, but the show must go on. Tomorrow we will begin our trip to the border of Vietnam and head for Ho Chi Min City.  There we will pick up Bouey’s father and a couple of others to head up north.  […]

If I meet another expat…

I will probably go up and give them a hug.  For those of you that don’t know what I am talking about, expat is short for expatriate, which is a person who resides in a country other than the one that they hail from.  We have met people from the US, UK, Hungary, Russia, Greece, […]

New Photo Galleries from Thailand and Cambodia

It is a huge task.  There are so many amazing things that we see daily that we do not realize just how many photos we have to go through.  Steve Bouey did most of the work editing the photos and getting them up online.  Overall I think that he went through over a thousand photos […]

Our First Wonder of the World

A long time ago the seven ancient wonders of the world were made official in a poem by Antipater of Sidon, who described the structures around 140 BC: "I have set eyes on the wall of lofty Babylon on which is a road for chariots, and the statue of Zeus by the Alpheus, and the hanging gardens, and […]

Mine Boggling

Before we even arrived in Cambodia, I knew the country had a troubled past and one of the results of the conflicts is a landscape littered with land mines. You occasionally read about the Cambodian land mine problem in a magazine or hear about it when a famous celebrity mentions something about it at a PR event. […]

One Hell of a Ride

We have heard many horror stories about the road conditions in Cambodia. People frequently disregard traffic laws and you basically need a tank to get over all of the pot holes. One such stretch of road, famous for being particularly bad, is the road from the border town of Poipet to Siem Reap and the […]
