Indo China – Day 16

This morning started a little earlier than expected, as I woke up at about 5.40am, and because I thought the alarm was going off at 6, I got up, though left Mollidy to sleep. When I got back to bed, Mollidy woke and asked what time it was, and I said the alarm was about…

Indo China – Day 15

We ended up having a bit of a broken sleep due to an unknown number calling me at around 3am, and then Mollidy’s watch alarm going off for some strange reason at 5am. So when the real alarm finally did go off at 6am we were a little groggy, though showers and putting on freshly…

Indo China – Day 14

With 12 hours sleep for Mollidy and 10 for me, we both found ourselves up at 8am, which meant we clearly needed the rest. We went downstairs for the breakfast that was included, and most of the group were already going off in small groups for their days activities, but there were a few of…

Indo China – Day 13

Being woken up by a rooster is one thing, but being woken up by dozens is another. Being a local community means they all live pretty close to each other, and all of them seem to have their own dogs, cats, cows, and roosters, and so once one rooster started they all started. Luckily the…

Indo China – Day 12

Despite not having to get up early, we found ourselves awake by 6am, but that meant we had a decent 9 hours sleep, so we were pretty refreshed. We jumped on our iPads and mucked around on the net, as it can be a bit of a luxury having internet in your rooms, so we…

Indo China – Day 11

Today was another early start for us, but a bit later than yesterday as we didn’t have to get up till 6am, but seeing as we were in bed by 8.30pm the night before, this wasn’t an issue. We packed up and headed down to a local restaurant for lunch which Jay our tour guide…

Indo China – Day 10

Today was a pretty early start, with a 5.30am wake up so that we could shower and pack, as after 3 days in Siem Reap we were finally moving onto the next stop, Kampong Cham, which was going to be a 6-7 hour public bus ride. Jay, our guide, had built up the fact we…

Indo China – Day 9

As we woke, with the luxury of no alarm, we were glad to see it was 8am, meaning we just both had our best and longest sleep of the trip so far, a whole 8 1/2 hours! We knew this meant we were finally 100% acclimatised, and though it might sound odd being excited about…

Indo China – Day 8

Today was one of those days I was looking forward to since first booking this trip, but it was also one of the days we knew could end up being the most physically taxing to get through. The reason why I was looking forward to it is it was my chance to finally see one…

Indo China – Day 7

You know the saying, better work stories? Well here’s a better travel story that will make you laugh, as it sure made us laugh. After our orientation the night before, we were told that the tour bus will leave at 7am, and the included breakfast will be at 6am, so we decided to set our…
