The time on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam was authentic, adventurous, and relaxing. We had two different types of experiences staying near the city center and then going to a resort (we won 2 free nights while in Singapore in October). We will tell you all about our trip in next week's podcast.
► In the meantime, if you want to see what it looks from a scooter driving through the heart of the island on a Sunday night, check out Nikki's video as I handle the bike. Subscribe to my channel while you are there, please.
► Nikki and I are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our friend Darice from home. We had a blast hanging out with her in May in Sicily, and now she is back to discover Vietnam. This is her first trip to SE Asia, and we are pumped to show her why we enjoy it so much. We love getting visits from friends on our journey!
► Remember those crickets and roaches I ate while in Cambodia? Well, apparently I am way ahead of the curve and didn't even realize it. Some people are paying good money for that insect protein. I promise, my experience was much cheaper.
► Did you see this story on people talking in accents that aren't natural of their homeland? It's hard not to think this rare disease is pretty funny. If I come back speaking like a Japanese dude, just let me be, please.
► In this week’s podcast episode, we talk about Cambodia Travel (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Angkor Wat).
Our adventure to Cambodia included celebrating the Water Festival (Bon Om Touk) while in Phnom Penh, discovering the beauty of Siem Reap, and taking in the mystery of Angkor Wat. The massive celebration in the country’s capital city brought in over a million visitors, and we had the chance to take in the festivities alongside them.
Eating insects, watching the boat races, and hearing the fireworks were all part of the 3-day massive party. Our time in Siem Reap helped us understand why it is a backpackers heaven with many pubs, cheap dining options, and the bucket list mystery of Angkor Wat. The magnificent Temple from the 12th century will leave you asking questions of what was built. Our journey to Cambodia was amazing. Listen as we share what we learned along the way.
I hope you have a great week ahead!
