Cambodia – The Tourist

Cambodia – The Tourist

I was very lucky to have had the time (thanks to Twiggy convincing me I had to) and the money to afford to stay-on in Cambodia for a few days after the work part of the trip with Oxfam Australia was finished. To be a tourist.

Since getting married and having children, I’ve had short trips here and there, but to pop my backpack on and navigate international travel again, just like in my 20s was amazing. Sounds cliche, but I did rediscover myself. I really needed to.

Here’s a few snaps of my time in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. And yes, I did see the sunrise over Angkor Wat, along with a bagazillion other tourists.

And then, just like that, I boarded a plane home again. My heart full of joy. My head full of new information. My soul recharged. And aching to see my kids again.

They survived fine without me. Twiggy is an amazing man. They’re amazing kids.

And I felt pretty darn proud of myself.

This is the seventh in a series of posts about my recent trip to Cambodia as part of my work with Oxfam. For more information about the work Oxfam Australia is doing in the area of labour rights go to: https://www.oxfam.org.au/whos-making-your-clothes/.

  1. Oh lovely photos… i completely get what you mean about getting away being so refreshing. I’m off this arvo to country NSW with a group from Autism Awareness Australia to do a day-long series of talks. Two nights away with good friends… the thought of it has uplifted me all week and I will enjoy it so much… and will love seeing bairns when I get home too. I must get to Cambodia one day and eat some spiders.

  2. I’ve enjoyed all of your blogs from Cambodia…thanks for writing them. Glad you took the chance to be a tourist there…it’s an amazing place with amazing people.
