The bus journey was good as I slept for the majority, it took 15 hours from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City including a 30 min stop at Phnom Penh and an hour at the Vietnam boarder to get our visas stamped, finger prints scanned and luggage checked! You have to get your visa for Vietnam prior to arrival at the boarder! We purchased ours at the …
... the temple bells in the morning, and the smells of flowers, incense, animals, cooking, raw sewer (hey, I didn’t say it was all good). I remember our second day there when I was like, “Look at all these beautiful rivers running down the sides of the roads everywhere. I love it!” The response I got? “Um Jamie, that’s basically raw sewage.” Riggghht. Regardless, I will never forget India.
Towards the end ...
... feel awkward but it would be so worth it. I sat in the freezing cold, mega-large classroom and daydreamed of being elsewhere (daydreaming is a HUGE strength of mine by the way!) Yet... I didn’t switch majors to Anthropology because this logical part of my brain said, “Where on earth would you go? How would you make a living?”, and the self-doubting part of my brain said, “You can’t do that. You don’t speak any other ...
... of the mountain where we climbed the 480m to meet the entrance- this was tough in 35 degree heat! Upon entering the cave the temperature dropped dramatically. We entered at the highest point which is 80m meaning we had a fantastic view of the expansive space. It had been superbly lit which made it fell otherworldly, almost like we were on the moon. Unfortunately the photos we took don't do it any justice but ...
... I'm grateful that Luke responded so quickly to that email (thanks mate); and I'm at peace knowing I turned my life choices over to God at that point. It's crazy/cool to think that now I'm currently the one who has taken over Luke's responsibilities in that respect: I get to be the person answering the emails from people looking for the same adventure that I was. It sounds so cheesy but getting to share in people's excitement is the best part of my job. Because they're ...

At $15 a room with free wifi, computers and tea and coffee plus the lovely, very friendly and helpful couple that run it, this is a great guesthouse. It location is perfect, everything is within walking distance, and it's situated down a narrow alley buzzing with stalls and Vietnamese women cooking on the street! I love it! I have not give it 5 stars as our room is a little noisy as its above reception but not really much to complain about!
