After Nepal, Singapore, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, we finally arrived in Cambodia – the last country on our itinerary and the place were we were hoping to find jobs and settle down for a year or two.
We loved Cambodia almost immediately. Before settling in to Phnom Penh and looking for work, we wanted to see some of Cambodia. So we spent a while lying on the beach at Sihanoukville, eating crabs in Kep, feeling like castaways of Rabbit Island, hanging out in Siem Reap and visiting the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat. We also spent a lot of time exploring Phnom Penh, finding good restaurants and bars, and hanging out with some friends from home who already live here (and their adorable baby).
So our travels are over for a while now. We are both working for NGO’s in Phnom Penh, and settling in to life in the Cambodian capital.
Life in Cambodia
Our blog will now focus more on living in Phnom Penh – what its like to be an expat in the Kingdom of Wonder. We will have a lot more reviews of places – restaurants and bars – lots of tips and advice for people visiting or living in Phnom Penh, and stories of the life in Phnom Penh.
We will no doubt also post a lot about the work we are doing in Cambodia. We are working with the Cambodian Children’s Fund, an amazing organisation founded by Scott Neeson in 2004. CCF provides eduction, nourishment, vocational training and medical care to 1300 children from some of Cambodia’s poorest communities.
