I’m taking my bed bug bites and heading to the beach. I’ll be honest, I didn’t know Cambodia even had a beach, I do now, I’m going there! Another 10 hour bus ride to SIHANOUKVILLE.
There are several islands to choose from, I pick KOH RONG.
I TAKE THE 40 MIN. FAST BOAT vs THE 2.5 HR FERRY.
As burned out on travel as I am, I’m still good at it. Cambodia is similar to many of the other asian countries. The tourist sites here are well developed with a wide range of restaurants and accommodation.
THIS IS “MAIN” STREET, PUSHING GOODS ALONG THE BEACH TAKES 5 PEOPLE, IT’S ACTUALLY DIFFICULT TO JUST WALK IN THE FINE WHITE SAND
I eat at THE PARADISE, where i’m staying. I have a super meal while talking with Natasa via Skype. She wants me to send her a photo, OKI
THIS WAS ON THE BACK OF A BATHROOM DOOR
I’ve always heard that water would be the next war. Being from the “WET” Pacific Northwest, I really didn’t get it. But, now I’m on an island, during the dry season. I got a bungalow with shower and toilet, but no water.
I couldn’t flush my toilet, take a shower or just wash my face. There’s a bucket for a water stash in the bathroom. We got water for an hour, I quickly flushed the toilet and fill my stash bucket for flushing later! Not enough water for a shower though. Development and resources on the island were not in sinc. I saw the guy next door managing his water storage tank several times a day. I asked him if I could take a shower, “sure”, “just don’t tell anyone!”
I got my hotel to give me a bottle of water, so I could brush my teeth.
Next time you hear, drought or water shortage- it’s real and complicates many of the things we take for granted.
I am a tourist, so I sign-up for a snorkel boat trip, with lunch and fishing, all for $12. I didn’t catch any fish or did anyone else on the tour.
I MADE A BBQ FISH SANDWICH WITH VEGETABLES, MMM
The boat had a low draft, so we had to swim to shore to watch the sunset, hence no camera or photos. If I ever came back I would stay on this side of the island. LONG BEACH is gorgeous with simple, uncrowded accommodations. I’m so done with house music till 2am, this beach is a “I’ll be back for sure.”
The bar, next to my place, had a chalk board where you could mark the country where your from if you bought thier special drink.
YEP, SLOVENIA WAS LISTED
