In October 2015 I jetted off to Cambodia for a two and a half month adventure. Basing myself in the city of Siem Reap, I did a short spell of English teaching before hitting the open road. It was an amazing time, featuring some of the world’s most stunning temples, a traditional river village, bamboo trains and tropical beaches.
Moreover, I toured one of the world’s unique national parks and witnessed the flight of a million bats. In Cambodia’s bustling capital, I took in the harrowing memorials to the country’s turbulent history. Along the way, I met a dude on a bus who ended up becoming one of the great friends of my life.
In January 2020 I returned to Cambodia for an extended period of travel and writing. With its relaxed visa laws, low cost of living and western-friendly cafes and restaurants, I figured this would be a good long term base for a hopeless digital nomad. The only thing I hadn’t counted on was COVID-19.
