In October 2015 I jetted off to Cambodia for a two and a half month adventure. Based out of Siem Reap, I did a short spell of English teaching before hitting the open road. It was an amazing time that saw me visit some of the world’s most stunning temples, a traditional river village and tropical beaches.
Moreover, I toured one of Earth’s most unique national parks, rode the bamboo train and witnessed the flight of a million bats. I also made time to visit Cambodia’s buzzing capital and its harrowing genocide memorials. Along the way, I met a dude called Daryl 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, cheap accommodation and western friendly cafes and restaurants, I figured it a good long term base for a hopeless digital nomad like myself.
It all sounded perfect on paper. However, I certainly hadn’t counted on the sudden and devastating effects of COVID-19. Needles to say, I’ll never forget those memorable seven months.
