Siem Reap, Cambodia

Ryan and I decided to spend a day away from the temples and really get to know Siem Reap. We classified today as our “taking it easy” day. By taking it easy I mean we rode our bicycles about 10 miles from town.

Even though it was a long tough ride in the Cambodian heat, it was still very enjoyable. There was something about riding along a dirt road with an unknown destination and friendly faces along the street. It was a great adventure and I was happy to do it on my bicycle rather than zipping by on a motorbike (even if I was soaked with sweat in the end).

Below are some images from one of the villages we visited. It was quintessential Cambodia – smiling faces despite poverty. Everyone seemed happy to see us. We parked our bicycles and strolled up and down the narrow streets, walking into homes to say hello.

The only “taking it easy” we did today was on our way back from the village. We spotted a hammock bar and took a 2 hour rest. We swung, ate stir fry chicken, and even managed to get in a bit of a snooze (the first time I’ve ever napped at a restaurant). It was a perfect way to end our day!

Enjoy the images.
