At this point in my Cambodia Trip series, I will be telling your stories and be sharing experiences from the trip! I was writing this post and realized just how long it really is. Instead of having one way-too-long post, I have decided to break it up. That’s right, a series within a series!
This post is going to include an overview of the trip and then link you to all the other stories! This means that you get to choose which stories interest you, just click on the headings!
Before we get into the storytelling, I need to warn you that all the details that I write here are based on my own memory and personal experience. See my Terms & Conditions Page for more liability information.
During the weekdays, we stayed in the same small hotel in Phnom Penh and were designated a roommate. We spent these days visiting a lot of places in Phnom Penh or nearby. The places we visited were largely meant for learning and academic purposes.
The weekends were treated more like a vacation. At these times we would go outside of Phnom Penh and stay in a much nicer hotel, doing things like spending a day on the beach or touring Cambodian Temples.
