Travel Report: Central Market, Phnom Penh.

Central Market, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. —— September 2020. I really love the old French Art Deco buildings across Cambodia. From the shapely structures of Siem Reap and Battambang, to the crumbly, balcony-laden houses of Kampot and Kep, we had seen dozens of the country’s most impressive colonial creations. One afternoon, in Phonm Penh, we mapped […]

Travel Report: The National Museum of Cambodia.

The National Museum of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. —— September 2020. Imagine having a national museum all to yourself. A private audience, so to speak, with a nation’s most treasured historical relics. That’s what Sladja and I got to experience when we stopped by The National Museum of Cambodia during our final few days in the […]

Travel Report: Wat Phnom Temple, Phnom Penh.

Wat Phnom Temple, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. —— September 2020. We were into the last few days of our seven month adventure in Cambodia. Having finally gotten through the capital’s essential but mentally draining genocide sights, I figured we needed to lighten the tone. When I first read about Wat Phnom my initial reaction was: Do […]

Choeung Ek Killing Fields, Cambodia. —— Please note: You may find the story and images presented in this article deeply upsetting. Thus I wouldn’t blame you for sitting this one out. For those of you who do proceed, I’m guessing this is going to be as difficult to read as it was for me to […]

Travel Report: The Strand Restaurant, Kep.

The Strand Restaurant, Kep. —— August 2020. Sometimes the most memorable travel experiences are the ones that come completely out of the blue. That place you didn’t even know existed. The one you ended up stumbling upon when your plan A didn’t work out. This is precisely what happened to Sladja and I one evening in […]

Travel Report: Rabbit Island, Cambodia.

Rabbit Island, Cambodia. —— August 2020. It felt great to be finally taking our foot off the gas. While we had enjoyed all our field trips across Kep, for the most part each adventure had been quite the physical demand. From The Crab Market and the abandoned villas to Kep National Park and Samathi Pagoda, […]

Travel Report: Samathi Pagoda, Kep.

Samathi Pagoda, Kep, Cambodia. —— August 2020. After a somewhat disappointing afternoon hiking around Kep National Park, I found myself letting out a sigh of relief when our tuk tuk rumbled to a halt outside Samathi Pagoda. “Yes, we made it!” From the moment Sladja and I spotted its orange-gold roof sticking out of the […]

Travel Report: Kep National Park, Cambodia.

Kep National Park. —— August 2020. It was another Monday afternoon in Cambodia, which meant we were back in a tuk tuk for the forty minute drive into Kep from Kampot. After our adventures exploring Kep Beach, the abandoned colonial mansions and the Crab Market, our next project was an afternoon hike through Kep National […]

Travel Report: Kep Crab Market, Cambodia.

Kep Crab Market. —— December 2015 & August 2020. It was late afternoon and the weather was not improving. While the rain had finally died out, there was now a blustery wind cutting in from the sea as we approached Kep Crab Market from the road that winds around the cliffs. With our arch nemesis […]
