Siem Reap

After the thought provoking and mellow days we had in Phnom Penh, we were hoping Siem Riep would we a little less depressing and we were in a for a treat! Siem Riep is the polar opposite of Phnom Penh. The city screams happy, shiny people and showcases the happier past of Cambodia, before the … More Siem Reap

Phnom Penh

Measuring at nearly 234,000km2, across Bolivia, Uruguay and Brazil, the Pantanal is the worlds … More The Pantanal
