The first two months...

Blogging has been one of the main things I wanted to do on this trip and up until this point, it hasn’t really felt right. At one point I was debating a newsletter, but I still can’t bring myself to inflict my waffle on other people’s inboxes. My Evernote is full of unfinished posts - most of them negative and ranting… Which is fine however, this is not the space for that - which is why I’ve started scrawling in the notebook my mate Lizzy gave me (aka journalling). For the first time since I left London (on the 18th November… Yep that long ago now!), I feel like I’m starting to become grounded, I feel like I’m home. As soon as I landed in Siem Reap I knew Cambodia is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now. Isn’t it funny how our gut and intuition is always right? I’m currently writing this looking over the Praek Tuek Chhu river in Kampot, pumped full of rather strong Khmer coffee… And here goes. WELCOME. ENJOY.

So neatly bullet pointed (and for those who are interested) this is where I’ve been so far… 

 

Thailand (2nd Dec - 22nd Jan) 

  • Bangkok 
  • Chiang Mai
  • Pai 
  • Pa Pae 
  • Chiang Mai
  • Koh Phangan 
  • Phuket 
  • Koh Lanta
  • Krabi Town 
  • Bangkok 

 

Cambodia (Present) 

  • Siem Reap 
  • Phnom Penh 
  • Kampot 

 

Seeing it written down like that makes me realise how much ground I’ve covered in the past (almost) couple of months! Holy shit. And I thought I was travelling slow. I’ll go into each of these in more detail over the next few weeks… I’ll have the time, trust me. I’m now settling in Kampot, Cambodia until the middle of April (if not longer) where I’ll be volunteering at a wonderful women’s empowerment project called Banteay Srey - aptly named after the beautiful women’s temple in Angkor. Once again, I’ll post on this properly! But over the next couple of months I’ll be teaching yoga there and helping them out with their marketing, mentoring one of the staff members and also being their IT support. I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to get stuck in. I’m also going to be teaching (once again on pure karma) at a vegan/ vegetarian restaurant in town call Simple Things, the studio space is beautiful and I’m feeling very, grateful to be teaching there. 

 

So once again WELCOME. And thank you for taking the time to read this, I promise I’ll be updating this regularly with my thoughts and movements. 

 

Love and light.
