Travel Report: Cambodia Landmine Museum.

Cambodia Landmine Museum. January 2020. Take even a rudimentary look into the history of Cambodia and before long you’ll find yourself entering the tragic world of the landmine. During decades of war, experts say at least six million landmines found their way into Cambodian soil. Moreover, these evil devices have been responsible for the deaths and […]

Travel Report: Wat Damnak Pagoda, Siem Reap.

Wat Damnak Pagoda. 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.

Travel Report: Artisans Angkor, Siem Reap.

Artisans Angkor, Siem Reap. January 2020. A common misconception about Siem Reap is the idea that, aside from The Angkor Temples, “there’s nothing much to see”. I hear this time and time again.

Travel Report: Wat Preah Prom Rath, Siem Reap.

Wat Preah Prom Rath. January 2020. I remember feeling surprised by how just incredibly clean and colourful Wat Preah Prom Rath Temple is. In fact, both Sladja and I were literally blinded by columns of kaleidoscopic light as we entered the complex. These competing streams danced around us in all directions under the glare of the […]

Miniature Replicas of Angkor, Siem Reap.

Miniature Replicas of Angkor, Siem Reap. Following our life-changing adventures in Belgrade, Sladja and I drew up plans for a future together. With her living in China and myself based in The UK, it was all a bit complicated. Nevertheless, we managed to book up what we thought was going to be a 1-month stay in Siem […]
