We left Kampot to venture onwards to Sihanoukville, where we were to join the grandparents (my parents, Alan & Jeanette). But before meeting them we had 4 days to kill so we bought a ticket for the ferry to Ko Rong Samloem.
Three nights in Kampot was easily extended to seven, thanks mostly to the great hospitality we had at Bohemiaz, a wonderful eco friendly resort just outide the town. Brian and Michelle the father and daughter team that run the place. Great food, a fussball table and a naturally filtered swimming pool complemented by a friendly troop of cats and dogs a large room with bunkbeds and even babysitting!!
We have embraced the art of slow travel managing to over stay everywhere we've been so far in Cambodia. Firstly, Battambang kept us busy for five days despite the awkwardness of streets constantly being closed off for the filming of First They Killed My Father (a harrowing but highly recommended read). Followed by a seven night, or was it eight, stay in Phnom Penh.
We are now in Cambodia after again being forced to flee from Thailand owing to visa expiration. A number of countries were in the offing this time. Myanmar, Laos, Malaysia but we settled on Cambodia for a few reasons. Namely it looked the cheapest and it was an easyish overland crossing. Plus although we have been once before it was such a fleeting visit we felt up for exploring it in more depth.
