Cambodia. If you asked me a year ago, I never would have thought I would make it there. But, life changes and as an expat in Thailand, I get to do a lot of things (like heading to Bali), which I originally never thought possible.

In October, I headed to Cambodia for work (Save Elephant Foundation opened a new sanctuary outside of Siem Reap) and got to experience the country for a brief moment.

Sure, I missed Angkor Wat thanks to it being closed for the day, but I was able to wander through crowded markets where the pungent smell of animal flesh permeated the air, and shop owners at the Night Market tried to hawk their various T-shirts, arts and other assorted goods at me. The Night Market reminds me a bit of Morocco’s souks where a whirlwind of colors, sounds and smells attack your senses, but without the pressure of having to spend, spend, spend.

While I was only in the country for a quick two days, one thing is for sure — I will be back!
