Apologies to those who have been asking my whereabouts, as I haven't posted in a long while.
In the past few months, we have left Thailand, relaxed on the beaches of south Cambodia, marveled at the ruins of Angkor Wat, hosted friends in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, made our way to south Vietnam, bought motorbikes, driven the coast of Vietnam from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, sold the motorbikes, and flown to Laos - our last country in southeast Asia. It has been an incredibly busy, rewarding, and exhausting few months. After arriving in Laos, we were happy to put our bags down and stay in Luang Prabang for about five days - the longest we've been in one place in a long time. We have been hitting the road hard, and it's been good to be able to rest our legs for once; to relax, and not feel the need to constantly be on the move.
The tough thing about trying to keep up with a blog is that it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to keep up with, especially when we have been traveling as much as we have, moving every two or three days. There's a delicate balance between using the blog as a way to pause and reflect on experiences versus the blog itself becoming a source of stress, the constant nagging feeling that I'm neglecting it or not doing enough.
When you are traveling every day, sometimes you have to sacrifice a whole day in order to write a post, and most often I make the choice that I would rather go explore or do some sort of activity rather than sit indoors and take the time to write a post. But I think it is an important process to be able to write and reflect about the experiences, share pictures, and update loved ones on my whereabouts.
So, dear readers, please excuse the hiatus and enjoy some pictures from our time in Cambodia below. You can scroll through to see the different pictures. Another post about our motorbike trip in Vietnam is coming up soon!
