Cambodia Trip: Happy New Year!

Hi readers,

Happy New Year!
I know its been a long while since I've posted.
申し訳ございません (Moshiwake gozaimasen)
I really have no excuses as to why I haven't posted recently. If you follow me on Facebook you might have noticed that I recently went on vacation with Alex to Cambodia. We visited Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh. The water at the beach in Sihanoukville was a beautiful greenish blue and the most comfortable temperature imaginable. So comfortably warm you never wanted to get out. To top it off you could get 1 hour massage by the beach for only US$5.00. You will however, be constantly pestered by the locals to buy services, bracelets and other souvenirs if you are unable to say no, firmly.
I loved my stay at Sihanoukville and would love to make a regular vacation spot.

The cows just sort of roam free. Thought they were kind of cool :)

 Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia. It busy, kinda dirty and many buildings are under construction. It's growing, the economy is getting better day by day. There's great food, fresh fruits and pretty much fresh everything. We were able to get fresh mango smoothies everyday for only a dollar. Amazing!

 I had a fantastic time in Cambodia and hope to visit there again soon, if even just for the food and beach. 

Did you go away on vacation during the winter holiday?
