Siem Reap

Cambodia


In Cambodia you start to realize that happiness is in the simple things that surround you. The only thing you need to do is start to see it.

Not knowing what to expect was the best way to arrive. Food, spices, traffic, population, heat, noise, culture, all my senses were sharpened.

The temples of Angkor Wat are beyond impressive. Dedicated to various Buddhist gods, I could easily spend days examining them. Every temple tells its own story. Around the temple complex I’ve seen young monks dressed in bright orange clothes, children playing, elephants, monkeys and tourist. One day I set off to floating villages. This place totally changed my way of thinking about how people live. The locals spend almost all of their time on the water. Floating schools, shops, markets and houses.

Despite poverty and everything their country has suffered, Cambodia’s real treasure is its people, an unbelievably happy people. To be perfectly honest, I left a piece of my heart in Cambodia.

TIP: Make friends with the locals. Ask them what they like to do in their part of the world. Eat the traditional delicacies and street food. Take the bus. Learn a foreign language. Be spontaneous.
