Cambodia Travel Pictures

Cambodian stone carving

Cambodia is a difficult place to describe. Its beauty is tremendous.  And so is its poverty.  Siem Reap took me back hundreds of years to mystical sort of place.  Phnom Penh brought me back into a present where people continue to struggle.  The images I have of Camboida are good, bad and definitely unforgettable.  Here are a few.

Life in Sa Pa

Sa PaCan you spot the human?

 

Hello, Weekend!

Good morning, Vietnam!  Happy Saturday, everyone!

Real Life Vietnam

Speaking of the people you meet when you travel…

I don’t usually take pictures of random people but this fine chap insisted – because he wanted to see the picture afterwards.  Anyway this sums up a whole other side of Vietnam, one that’s not a gorgeous beach or an ornate building.  Here’s real life Vietnam, smiling for the camera.

Pretty, pretty Vietnam

And because my last two weeks have been filled with starting a new job, learning to teach nine (yes, NINE) new curriculums and dodging my way through streets of scooters that are all out to get me, I have no great words of wisdom to give  you.  Not that they are ever words of wisdom, but this time I am fresh out of words completely.  So, instead, I will shut the what up and share this picture of pretty, pretty Vietnam.  This is the beach at the end of my block…now I remember why I moved here!

Winter Wildlife

Sigh.  Another reason to miss Cape Town.  Despite what you may have heard, Cape Town winters can’t be all that bad.   After all, this travel photo was taken in Kirstenbosch Gardens right smack in the middle of winter.  Just look at that blue sky!

Who wouldn’t want to be here?

But seriously, who?  On a lazy gray afternoon in Simon’s Town, Cape Town, these little fishing boats seemed so inviting…

When I Grow Up…

It was just your typical Saturday afternoon out in Hout Bay, Cape Town.  Tourists were dancing to the local band that had set up on the dock.  When this little brother and sister walked out to admire the band, I couldn’t help but snap a quick travel photo!

Ruler of All they See

This about sums up Cape Town for me.  Ocean, mountains, more ocean, more mountains and an incredible sense of having access to nature in its finest.

An Elephant Doing What an Elephant Does

Hope you’re not sick of animal travel photots yet!  ‘Cause I got plenty more where this came from.

In my recent trip to the Kruger Park (yes, I am gloating as I write this) I was crazy lucky enough to see  animals in action. There were some hectic moments watching a lion kill, and three cheetahs stalk their prey.  But I was also lucky enough to see animals in more relaxed situations.  This elephant didn’t mind our car a few feet away.  He just went about his business, doing what an elephant does.
