Travel Report: Wat Preah Prom Rath, Siem Reap.

January 2020. I remember feeling surprised by how incredibly clean and colourful Wat Preah Prom Rath Temple is. In fact, both Sladja and I were literally blinded by a cauldron of sparkling colours as we entered. These competing streams danced around in all directions under the glare of the afternoon sun. Indeed, I had never […]

Travel Report: Wat Damnak Pagoda, Siem Reap.

January 2020. There are a number of fine temples and pagodas to enjoy in Siem Reap. My favourite of these is the pretty Wat Damnak Pagoda, SR’s largest Buddhist centre located on the eastern side of The Siem Reap River. Moreover, it was just a short tuk tuk ride from our place at Foster Apartments, in […]

Travel Report: War Remnant Museum, Siem Reap.

War Remnant Museum, Siem Reap. January 2020. I’m unlikely to ever forget our visit to Siem Reap’s so-called War Remnant Museum. Not, I should point out, for the right reasons. Sladja and I had some truly unforgettable experiences during our seven months in Siem Reap. Hiking with the elephants of Kulen Forest. Meeting the legendary […]

Travel Report: Tribe Art Gallery, Siem Reap.

Tribe Art Gallery, Siem Reap. June 2020. I always enjoyed the flourishes of street art peppered around Siem Reap’s trendy Kandal Village. Each time we came here, usually for coffee at The Little Red Fox, sometimes for breakfast at Ivy Guesthouse, Sladja and I would notice something new. Eventually, an almost shameful six months into […]

Travel Report: Royal Independence Gardens, Siem Reap.

Royal Independence Gardens, Siem Reap. May 2020. I’ve spent a great deal of time championing the city of Siem Reap on these pages of mine. Hopefully, at the very least, I’ve dispelled the misguided notion that there’s not much to do beyond the world famous temples. That said, it’s probably time to share one of […]

Travel Report: Phare, The Cambodian Circus.

Phare The Cambodian Circus. March 2020. I can pinpoint the precise moment the world last felt normal. If I can even use such a word. It was the 3rd of March and Sladja and I were making our way inside the red, big top performance arena for a night at the circus. I say it felt […]

Travel Report: Scudamore’s Punting, Cambridge.

Scudamore’s Punting, Cambridge. May 2019. Mike and I had enjoyed a comprehensive day exploring the gorgeous city of Cambridge. But now, with afternoon edging towards early evening, there was one more quintessential Cambridge experience left. In fact, it would’ve been criminal to have bid the city farewell without taking a cruise down The River Cam on a traditional […]

Travel Report: Barrington Village, Cambridgeshire.

May 2019. I knew I was going to like Barrington Village the moment I started reading about it in China. I’d been dreaming about regaining a sense of lost Englishness. Of treating myself to a quintessential corner of Blighty where people walk their dogs and the air is fresh and punctuated with birdsong. Where there […]

Travel Report: Chesham, England.

Chesham, England. August 2019. The leafy English market town of Chesham in Buckinghamshire isn’t an exciting place. In fact, one might say it has very little to entice the passing traveler. While nobody could describe Chesham as the pulsating heart of England, it nevertheless occupies a special place in my heart. Because, ladies and gentlemen, Chesham was […]
