CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [11]

Cambodian BBQ.  Similar to Korean, but the grill is surrounded with vegetables and water that becomes a delicious soup with all the meat being grilled. We've got 7 kinds of meat here, chicken, pork, beef, kangaroo, squid, crocodile and fish. ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-3

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [10]

Pub street in Siem Reap. Literally every place is a bar, restaurant, massage parlour, or some combination of all three. Don't assume that pub street during the day is the same at night. Once the sun goes down the street transforms into a plethora ... Read more >

  Prague is the most beautiful city I've ever been to. Simple as that. It's unbelievably picturesque. Every way you turn, there's a photo opportunity. It's hard to put away the camera and soak up the city. The temptation to try to capture everything ... Read more >

Cambodia - Day 3-1

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [6]

Ankor Thom area, another temple site. Don't underestimate how large these temples are. Bring lots of water, sunscreen and food. Otherwise be prepared to have to bargain hard with the vendors to get a half decent price.

Cambodia - Day 3

CAMBODIA | Tue, 30 Sep 2014 | By changstein | Views [7]

Ankor Wat. Pictures and words do not fully explain how big these temples truly are. If you come to Asia, do not miss this experience. Also, if one vendor offers you 10 postcards for $1, and another offers you 1 postcard for $1 and you get 9 ... Read more >
