I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since January even though I had intentions to do so. There were many things to write about really, including this post. I finally completed my series of Cambodia posts over on my food blog culminating with a recipe for Cambodia Green Mango Salad. Mostly they are journal entries detailing my travel to Siem Reap, the links of which I have written down below. But first I want to share with you the short travel video I made. It’s not by any means an amazing video, but I really hope it provides a glimpse of what Siem Reap holds.
I really enjoyed my trip there and wouldn’t mind going back. I don’t actually say that often enough because there are too many places in the world I want to visit and I don’t have the time nor the resources to travel to a certain place over and over, but if given the chance, I’d definitely want to get to explore Siem Reap- or the rest of Cambodia- some more.
Now on to the photos! I’m still working on developing my eye for spotting the unusual elements and emotions in a scene and I’m hoping I get more chances to do so in the near future, wherever adventure may call my name once again. But all in all, I’m pretty happy with many of the photos I captured during this trip.
As I mentioned, I had written slightly more detailed entries on my food blog about my trip to Siem Reap. The first part of my travel diaries talks about the faces, places, and my general first impressions of Siem Reap, plus some bits about the silk and handicraft centre called Les Artisans d’Angkor.
My second diary entry is about my appreciation for the Temples of Bayon and Ta Prohm. Bayon Temple is my favourite temple here in Siem Reap mostly because it blows my mind to think about how much talent the sculptors who carved out these great detailed faces of Bayon had. To think they had used some rather primitive tools to capture such expressions! Ta Prohm on the other hand is well-known for being the location for movies such as Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones.
Finally, my last travel diary featured the Grand Ol Angkor Wat, and the Ton Le Sap Lake.
