Out of Cambodia…

Our last day in Cambodia was a busy one… Trevor, Chenty and I were interviewed separately by Morgan’s TV crew, and then we spent the remainder of the afternoon chatting to two young ladies who had been backpacking through South East Asia… Olivia and her friend had followed a similar route to ours as I […]
