She did it! Just a reminder for those of you just joining us. We set out on an Adventure333 (3 Generations, 3 Months, 3 Countries+). 3 generations (my 72 year-old mom – Gma Bev), to cover 3 countries (Laos, Vietnam & Cambodia), in just 3 months (November, December, January). Our amazing Adventure333 has come to an end and Gma Bev made it all the way!
We crossed over from Hà Tiên (border town), Vietnam into Cambodia. The first stop for us was Kep. We had plans of relaxing on gorgeous beaches in the south of Cambodia for a few weeks and then make our way north to see Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. Well plans changed quickly, once we spent our first few nights in Kep, near the border. As with all of our other accommodation Gma Bev covered her portion of the costs, so we will show the full price. We will cover our costs in the post about our expenses in Cambodia.
A few years ago I read about the bamboo train in Cambodia and I was fascinated with it. It sounded like a fun experience that needed to go on the bucket list, if and when I ever made it to Cambodia. Back then, it was a far off dream to ever visit Cambodia and look were we went! As part of our last few days our of a month in Cambodia, we made it to Battambang and rode that Bamboo Train!
We arrived into country number 3, Cambodia, on January 3rd. This was very exciting for us all. We were thrilled that Gma Bev was still backpacking along with the rest of us. This was her trip of a lifetime and she was doing well. Of course, you should know her by now, there is never a dull moment with Gma Bev around. Nope there is an extra layer of adventure and excitement, so let me share with you her shenanigans in Cambodia!
Adventure333 (3 Generations, 3 Months, 3 Countries)
We have been staying in Siem Reap for quite some time, and we’re just now getting around to visiting the biggest attraction, both in terms of physical size as well as the number of tourists. That is of course, Angkor Wat.
As you know we are a family that travels full-time and sometimes we need to enjoy some of the finer things. This time we were hosted by Palate Angkor Restaurant for a very nice meal in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
There are a few things that we miss from the U.S. The most common thing is food, but for me specifically, I miss having a motorcycle on which to rip around. We’re currently in Siem Reap Cambodia, so when I saw a sign that read Goshen Motorcycle Adventures, I knew the Motorcycling Gods were looking favorably on me.
Of course when Siem Reap Cambodia is mentioned, you instantly think of Angkor Wat and time visiting the temples. Something that we did enjoy, but we also wanted to explore other parts of the area during our 3 week visit to Siem Reap. We did just that when we took a 1/2 day tour with Tara Riverboat.
