10 Aug It’s All Up to You…. Do What Makes ya Happy!!
Posted at 00:21h in Southeast AsiaWriting to you from Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Our crew are now scattered all over South East Asia while they explore the region on their own with their own personal agendas. The majority of the gang left the island to search out the wonders of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. No trip to Cambodia is complete without a tour of these majestic stone temples, built from the 9-13th century and are the national symbol. Flags, money, beer…. its everywhere! Irene and Constance decided to stay in Siem Reap and volunteer with ACODO. A home for children who are orphaned or come from families unable to care for the properly. Preforming traditional Khmer dance to generate funds for the center, they are always in need of volunteers to help run their english classes. Hilary headed back into the hills of northern Thailand to Chiang Mai. Our day visit to Panyan Organic farm just wasn’t enough! She is headed back to spend her free time on the farm soaking up all she can about alternative energy sources, sustainability and organic farming. Alex, Monica and Lea are flying to the infamous beaches of Bali, Indonesia! Jealous! On a mission to add expert surfer to her resume, Alex is going to tackle the waves and go diving. Located in the coral triangle, Indonesia is also considered to be one of the worlds best places to dive. With more fish and coral species than anywhere in the world, the girls are in for a treat! Then again, lying on the beaches could be just as much fun! Katie and Adrienne are off to the Mekong Delta in Vietnam tomorrow morning. Famous for their floating villages and well preserved culture, the girls are going to make there way up to Ho Chi Minh city to experience the Kuchi tunnels and the intensity of the Vietnam War Museum, offering a very different outlook on the war. Then its through Siem Reap for them too! Will, Carly, Dayna, Chris and Alyssa all went to Siem Reap then headed for the beauty of southern Thailand’s shores. With Rai Lay, Koh Phangan and Krabi as a few possible destination points the gang is doing some serious island hoping! Expecting some glorious tans when we see them again! Amanda and Mike are stuck in the city of Phnom Penh! Addicted is an understatement. However, we are optimistic that we’ll shake the infatuation and check out some of the less travelled cities in the country… soon. That’s the plan at least. Everyone is planning to meet in Kanchanburi, Thailand on the 19th to wrap up our adventure together!! Safe travels till then!!!
