April 30: The South Coast of Cambodia (Kep, Koh Tonsay & Sihanoukville).
After leaving Phnom Penh, I boarded a bus for Kep, but I ended up in Kampot. What a happy accident! I sat by an expat gal who works in PP and talked me into spending the weekend with her at her favorite hangout. Good times! But I didn't take a single photo. From there, I did go to Kep, then Koh Tonsay and lastly to Sihanoukville.
BACK TO TOP
I opened the door of my bungalow in Kep, and this is who greeted me.
The beach in Kep. Just locals. I only saw about 3 other foreigners in the whole town.
Kep is famous for its crab, and since this is the country of statues, this is what they do.
Sippin' on my ginger ale, watching the water as I wait for some crab.
Then I headed to Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island). It's awesome to find a place of paradise that hasn't been ruined with hotels and night clubs. Just me, my thoughts and a view like this one.
But I will say, such a romantic spot can be a touch lonely when you're alone. But I did chat with some other very interesting travelers from all around the globe.
Yup. This is just another day in my life. Some people are rich in money. I'm rich in location.
My home for a couple nights. Very basic - no running water. Electricity is from 7-9pm only. But who needs much more than a bed on an island like this?
Could use a little company though.
Island au natural - as it should be. Love it.
Kickin' it, watchin' the sunset. Happiness.
Tethered to a gorgeous spot.
Taking it all in, hangin' in my hammock.
It's not a bad life.
And then I went to Sihanoukville - the antithesis of Rabbit Island. This place has been taken over by sleezy old men and all the needs to fulfill their desires. Gross.
After this kid made me a free "friendship bracelet" and told me that since I have no brothers, he is my brother, I decided to humor him and have him make me a name bracelet.
The most beautiful name in the world. And now I am not alone.
There is a big stretch of beach that's still not developed (though it's full of trash) but you can see, that won't last long.
I have never seen so many jellyfish in my life. The whole beach was lined with hundreds of them. It made me not want to go in the water. They're like aliens from another world.
And that's all for Cambodia. One night in Ko Kong, and then back to Thailand with my long awaited, very proper visa. The question is, then what?
Ah, when to the heart of man
Was it ever less than a treason
To go with the drift of things,
To yield with a grace to reason,
And bow and accept the end
Of a love or a season?
