Change of plan

Unfortunately, Cambodia greeted us with rain on our last day – although we didn’t mind as we read our books all morning and swam for a bit. We decided against rabbit island as nothing can beat Koh Rong. Plus, there was only 3 places that sold food there and it was all sea food – we couldn’t have poor Ol starving to death. 

We did walk towards Kep beach but the sea looked rough and the red flag was out, so we made the most of the weather and chilled again rather than risking our lives.

We ventured out for lunch when it stopped raining and ate noodles and ice cream like yesterday. 

We booked our bus tickets to Vietnam for tomorrow, 7 hours in an air conditioned mini bus isn’t too bad I guess… Fingers crossed for no Chinese nuisances!

When we realised we needed to spend our riel before going to Vietnam, we decided to treat ourselves and have tea at our lodge – Olly is having his usual pizza and me a chicken salad and Gin Sling. We’re hoping to play pool after although last night’s game became very heated when my version of hitting the ball was more like a golf swing. But, A level maths finally came in handy as I used my angles and managed to come a close 2nd – I’d still get an Olympic silver if it was down to me.

We’re sad to be leaving this beautiful country but getting excited for seeing you all when we get back now. Me and Ol have been dreaming of Weetabix, normal chicken and being able to drink tap water – only a week left now! 

There won’t be much blog activity tomorrow as I’m sure you don’t want bombarding with boring pictures of us on a bus – that is unless anything dramatic happens, and I’ll be sure to inform you. We’re arriving in Can Tho 6pm our time so don’t panic if we post later, fingers crossed for a smooth border crossing.

Speak soon,

Love Al and Ol xxxxxxxx

It is the witching hour again and I have been reading your blogs regarding your last day, I sent a blog but it appears not to have happened, its so frustrating….briefly I blogged about my joke, [miximitoasties] which I don’t think you got! you were going to Rabbit Island and you have been having different toasties to eat, oh well, its not the same when you have to explain it.
    I also said that I did not have any Granddaughters, especially ones coming home with dirty frog stained clothing!! and clothes with holes in them…I will have my needle and thread ready, also, stain removers and Vanish on standby, I miss you so much I cannot wait for you to come home
    Well its farewell to Cambodia and you are off once more on your travels, take care, stay safe and we love you loads, Nanxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
