    Gut Ding will Weile haben

    February 21 in Cambodia

    Um dem Großstadt Chaos etwas zu entfliehen, sind Chris, Genz & Lotta am Sonntag Morgen in Richtung Kampot weitergezogen.

    Ich blieb noch etwas in Phnom Penh um die Behörden Gänge hinter mich zu bringen &
    mir einen Tieferen Eindruck über die Dunkle Geschichte Kambodschas zu verschaffen

    Dienstag morgen ging es dann für mich in Richtung Süden nach Sihanoukville, wo unsere Bus stehen sollte. Die anderen beiden sind heute morgen (Mittwoch) dazugestoßen

    Chris und ich sind dann Richtung Hafen gestartet. Dort angekommen wurde uns mitgeteilt das unser Bus erst diesen Freitag den Hafen erreicht...

    Um sich die weitere Wartezeit positiv zu gestalten, geht es morgen mit der Fähre auf die Insel Koh Rong.

    The Big Easy

    March 18, 2017 in Cambodia

    These past 24 hours have been very different to my previous 2 weeks.

    The group left me yesterday at 9am and it was a sad goodbye, having made some great friends, mainly Amanda and Vanessa, who never failed to put a smile on my face.

    Having not felt lonely due to constantly being around people, this was the first test to see how I would do on my own. I checked out the hotel at 12pm and made my way to the hostel I was booked in for called the Big Easy. Straight away I met two of my roomies, Tess and Imogen, who were both from England, but they had plans for that day so it left me fending for myself.

    I sat in the bar alone, not many people there as usually check in is later for most. As I sat there it dawned on me that I really was on my own which made me quite emotional to say the least. However, I decided I was the only one who could change that and so being proactive I headed to the beach to soak up some sun. There met Helena who was from Sweden and happened to be staying in the Big Easy as well. She was great company and we grabbed dinner together to line our stomachs for the bar crawl later that evening.

    By this time, our dorm was nearly full with two guys having checked in, Jamie who is from NZ and Michael who is from Australia. Both were very bubbly people which was refreshing and settled my nerves about not meeting people. Pre drinks were held in the bar of the hostel then moved on to various other bars, finishing at JJs. I would love to be able to say more about what we did that night however my memory is a little foggy, I just know I had the best sleep I've had in the two weeks I've been in Cambodia.

    Today was another chilled day at the beach with a more peaceful evening at the hostel, preparing myself for the islands tomorrow. The day was topped off with a catch up from Mum, Dad and Ross which was lovely to see their faces and hear their voices.

    Big Easy, Sihanoukville

    April 1, 2017 in Cambodia

    This last week was a very hectic end to my month in Cambodia, needless to say it's been the best month full of amazing people, places and experiences.

    Of course, my last week was spent at the Big Easy, easily my favourite hostel I have visited. Having loved it so much I even decided to work there for a few days, however I wouldn't even call it work as it was so enjoyable and social there was never a dull moment.

    The friends I have made this past week I want to keep for life. I've met some great characters, all who are lighthearted in spirit and so easy to get on with. Saying goodbye to them was emotional and it's time to start making friends again.

    Drinking, sunbathing and relaxing are the activities the past week mainly consisted of. On the Wednesday there was the weekly jungle party known as Kerfuffle which starts at 10pm and finishes at 10am. There's also an after party which is for the real party goers. This night will go down as one of the best nights so far and I'm sure will remain hard to beat.

    So for my last night in Cambodia, it's safe to say it's been a dream and I couldn't have asked for a better time in an amazing country. Despite being extremely sad to leave, I've been told that's better than wanting to leave. Its undoubtable Cambodia will see my face again one day

    Sihanoukville

    December 10, 2017 in Cambodia

    Nach einer 11-stündigen Nachtbus-Fahrt sind wir in Sihanoukville angekommen.
    Zuerst haben wir den Sonnenaufgang am Strand genossen und uns dann auf den Weg zu einem kleinen Cafe gemacht, das von einer deutschen Backpackerin geführt wird. Endlich gab es mal wieder Oatmeal zum Frühstück! 😍
    Den Tag haben wir dann am Sokha Beach verbracht, der relativ leer und sehr ruhig war. Leider wurden wir hier in Wasser von nesselndem Plankton gepiekst, sodass wir am Nachmittag zum überfüllten Ochheuteal Beach rübergelaufen sind, wo Philip mal wieder die ganze Zeit damit verbracht hat, mit ein paar Jungs Fußball zu spielen.. 😂
    Morgen geht es auch schon endlich nach Koh Rong! 🏝

    Sihanoukville

    August 6, 2017 in Cambodia

    Diese Stadt ist für uns nur ein Sprungbrett auf die Inseln vor der Küste Kambodschas. Viel zu bieten hat sie nämlich auch nicht, außer einem langen Strand mit reihenweise Clubs, Bars und Partyhostels. An sich nichts Schlechtes, aber nicht das, was wir gerade suchen. Nach nur einem Tag geht es für uns auf die Insel Koh Rong Samloem.

    Sihanoukville

    November 18, 2017 in Cambodia

    We bleven in Sihanoukville eigenlijk voor 1 reden maar en dat is de was die gedaan moest worden.
    Op de eilanden hadden ze geen Laundry service dus hebben we alles op moeten sparen tot we weer op het vaste land waren. De was neemt 24 uur in beslag dus tot die tijd hebben we even gerelaxt en zijn we ook sportief bezig geweest door ’s ochtends te gaan hardlopen over het strand. Dit is iets wat we de laatste paar dagen vaker proberen te doen zodat we een beetje fit blijven.

    Naast het heerlijke weer dat ze hier de afgelopen dagen hadden kennen ze ook hier regen en onweer. Het is dus echt niet altijd lekker weer. Beide dagen heeft het geregend dus we waren gelukkig net optijd van de eilanden af.
    We waren wel bang dat de was niet oprijd droog zou zijn, omdat ze die normaal buiten hangen om in de zon te drogen.

    Gelukkig was de was helemaal droog en konden we alles in pakken om de volgende ochtend vroeg met de bus via Phnom Penh naar Sen Monorom (Mondulkiri) te gaan. (9 uur reizen)

    Welcome to Cambodia

    February 27, 2017 in Cambodia

    When I walk up my fisrt morning in Sihanoukville, I really had no plan what to do in Cambodia. But really quickly it was clear that I will love this country. As soon as I arrived I met so many nice people! Especially at the otres beach II. I extended my overnight 5 times... so not a lot to say about how much I like it!

    The whole atmosphere was so nice and do you know this feeling, when you just feel very happy. It's almost like to be in love with butterflies in the belly. 😜

    After some nice days wirh lovely people, a bunch of the cutest puppies ever, a unforgettable jungle party I will visit the island to relax.

    Sihanoukville für Müde

    March 23, 2017 in Cambodia

    Das Küstenstädtchen hat uns den Start in den Trip wirklich leicht gemacht. Trotz fehlender Nachtruhe sind wir als erstes die Strände des Orts abmarschiert, die sich über mehrere Kilometer erstrecken. Und das bei über 30 Grad Mittagshitze! Tja, wer was erleben will, muss eben manchmal leiden 😉

    Ansonsten bietet der Ort leckeres Essen, reihenweise nette Unterkünfte (wie unsere, das Zana Beach Guesthouse) und Bars.

    Hier kann man es also leicht ein paar Tage aushalten - und genau das haben wir für den Einstieg auch vor. Für morgen sieben Uhr früh haben wir eben einen Scuba-/Schnorchelausflug nach Koh Koun/Koh Rong Sanloem eingetütet. Nur Strand wär eben doch etwas fad... Also heißt es heute zügig ins Bett - gute Nacht schon mal!
