For the first time ever, my father booked a family holiday just a few weeks ago. To Iceland, much to our surprise. As someone who doesn’t exactly thrive on ice, I was quite chuffed to be going during the summer. Little did I know, the puffins leave in early August! I was too late. However, I shared a tender moment with some lovely Icelandic horses.
At the ripe age of fifteen, I learned about the (rough) history of the world. That’s when I formed my bucket list featuring Angkor Wat. However, my parents weren’t exactly thrilled about me traveling Southeast Asia alone after high school. So, I put Angkor on the backburner. Then, I moved to Bangkok and booked my ticket to Cambodia with one of my closest friends. Here are a few snippets of our time there–it was filled with history, art, and many western tourists.
Right, so sometimes you have a holiday where you did and saw multiple things and you cannot wait to gush about it to all of your friends. Other times, you have a holiday where you did a whole lot of nothing and just enjoyed it in the moment. You recall it fondly and wish you were still there. This is the latter, so I won’t ruin the beauty of these places with my (semi) inane thoughts and musings.
