The floating village in Cambodia are actually inhabited by Vietnamese. They travel from one end of the river to the other as the monsoon comes and goes. It’s quite a touristy spot though. I hear that if you go further in on the river you get to see more authentic living.
some more images taken from Siem Reap
When you go to Siem Reap you are most likely there to see Angkor Wat and you’ll soon realize what image you have of Angkor Wat is actually Ta Prohm. You’ll never forget the first moment you see these amazing temples. I’m reminded of how it felt when I first set my eyes on Istanbul, the feeling of stepping back in time.
The roughest ride of my life. This is an old track used by locals to transport goods from one village to another. They still use it in the mornings to do exactly that but in the afternoon to evening it turns into a tourist trap attraction.
we visited the only “mountain” I could see in the area. It’s another sad landmark out of many in Cambodia where many men and women lost their lives during Pol Pot’s reign.
Did u know the movie “king and I” is banned in Thailand. Although its a democratic country they still treat the king like a deity.Off to see the grand palace and temple of emerald buddha. It’s hot and I have to make some effort to not let that start annoying me. I pull my hair up in a bun and face the heat. It’s quite beautiful and my tour guide does his best to explain everything to me.
I’m going to south east asia on a solo photography trip. The time has finally arrived and I must rise to the challenge. In the next week and a half that I have left to get ready I will be posting just that. the prep!
here are some more shots from my trip to mali. it already feels like it was ages ago!!!!
my apologies for the lack of weddingy photos :) personally it’s quite nice to take a little break from wedding photos. i think it’s important to switch things up a bit and exercise my none wedding muscles.
thanks to all the peeps out there who take the time to read what i post and view my photos! I wouldn’t be here without every single one of you!
