What to See in North Vietnam?

by Cuong Nguyen @ Travel Sense Asia

Thanks to the perfect geographical location, Vietnam has inherited many wonderful landscapes from Mother Nature and absorbed the essence of neighboring cultures. This makes people wonder what to see in North Vietnam. Because I have spent almost all of my life here, I can confidently say that I know this area inside out. My friends […]

January in Breb. Life in the Freezer

by Alyson Long for World Travel Family @ World Travel Family

We’ve been waiting for this. When we first had the idea of basing ourselves in Romania, locals told us winter temperatures can easily drop to -25C. We checked online, we couldn’t find any records of temperatures that low, so we kind of didn’t believe it but wanted to find out what it was like. With […]

Kommentar zu Sihanoukville Reisetipps: Anreise, Strände, Essen und Unterkünfte von Patrick

by Patrick @ Kommentare für Trip Angkor

Hallo Ingrid, in Kambodscha ist die medizinische Versorgung allgemein „rudimentär“. Internationale Krankenhäuser gibt es nur in Phnom Penh und Siem Reap und selbst diese fliegen intensivmedizinische Fälle, aber auch gewisse Unfallverletzungen, häufig z.B. nach Bangkok aus, da dort eine bessere Behandlung möglich ist. In anderen Teilen von Kambodscha (inkl. Sihanoukville!) sieht es noch bescheidener aus. Ich kenne zwar jemanden, der ebenfalls eine Nierentransplantation hinter sich hat. Daher weiß ich ein bisschen etwas dazu, wie es danach weiter geht - unter anderem Diät essen sowie nur besonders hygienisch zubereitetes Essen und besondere Körperhygiene insb. mit häufigem Händewaschen, da immunsupprimiert... In Kambodscha (wie auch in anderen Entwicklungs- / Schwellenländern) ist das natürlich deutlich schwieriger umzusetzen als bspw. in Deutschland. Soviel einleitend dazu - ich würde wohl auch lieber die Welt sehen wollen, als mich da sehr einzuschränken, kann und will aber nicht etwas in Richtung „alles kein Problem“ sagen. Das musst Du selbst abwägen. Zu Deiner eigentlichen Frage: Wenn das <a href="https://tripangkor.com/hotels/?id=44559" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Sokha Beach Resort</a> zu „protzig“ ist, empfehle ich einen Blick auf Unterkünfte bei Otres Beach zu werfen. Da gibt es nette 4 Sterne Hotels, teilw. auch Boutique Hotels. Schaut Euch z.B. das <a href="https://tripangkor.com/hotels/?id=1156404" rel="noopener" target="_blank">White Sea Boutique Hotel</a>, <a href="https://tripangkor.com/hotels/?id=2193709" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Otres Resort</a>, <a href="https://tripangkor.com/hotels/?id=862097" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Ren Resort</a> oder <a href="https://tripangkor.com/hotels/?id=1113971" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Naia Resort</a> an. Alles nette Unterkünfte in Sihanoukville. Und abschließend noch: <blockquote>Muss ich überhaupt Bedenken haben, dort meine Badetage zu verbringen?</blockquote> Dazu kann ich bei Deiner konkreten Frage (bzw. dem medizinischen / gesundheitlichen Hintergrund dabei) als Reisewebseiten-Betreiber und Nicht-Mediziner wie gesagt wirklich gar keine Aussage treffen... Weder „ja“ noch „nein“. Ich hoffe, die allgemeinen Reiseinfos helfen dennoch ein wenig weiter. Viele Grüße, Patrick

Hallo Roland, viel günstiger dürfte das nicht gehen, denn die Strecke zieht sich extrem. Ich habe die Strecke selbst mit dem Privattaxi noch nicht gemacht, weiß aber, dass Reisebüros / Unterkünfte in Battambang ca. 150 US$ nach Koh Kong City aufrufen. Und von da sind es ja ca. 20 km nach Tatai... Ich weiß auch nicht, ob Taxifahrer da noch eher über Phnom Penh fahren oder es mittlerweile „direkt“ via Pursat durch das Kardamom-Gebirge geht.

Expats, You CAN Go Home

by noreply@blogger.com (With 2 Kids In Tow) @ With 2 Kids In Tow, It's Backpacking We Go

I came across an interesting article last week from the perspective of an 'expat' who wrote 4 Ways Living Abroad Changes You...Forever.  While the author generally advocates the benefits of travel, it was his perspective as an 'expat' that got me thinking.  Suddenly I realized that I, too, was an 'expat' while I lived in Australia.  And in spite of nodding my head in agreement to most of the article coupled with my recent move home, I found I  strongly disagreed with one of the author's key points.

According to Wikipedia, 'an expatriate (or expat for short) is a person temporarily or permanently living in a country other than of the person's upbringing'. So I guess the 12yrs that I spent living in Melbourne qualifies me!  Interestingly, until now I've never thought of myself that way, tending to think of expats more in terms of people from English, Western countries who live in non-English speaking places.  

But in the article, the author states: 'You can never go back home'.  As you may recall from my recent post, I have done just that.  After being away from Vancouver, the place where I was brought up, my family and I have just relocated here.  And what do I think of coming home?

Firstly, I had no expectations that things were going to be the same.  How could they be?  Although I have been back for a few months at a time over the the years, I'd been gone for 16yrs! I fully expected things to change, people to change, and relationships to change.  But the reality was, I still have my closest friends and family here and they have been great upon my return.  Yes, I am not entirely the same person that I was before I left due to my experiences, but then again, neither are they.  But in the end, deep down, we haven't changed and neither have our core values. 

 I had greatly underestimated how the values of a society can differ from one another and thus affect one's sense of belonging in the long run.

Secondly, for the first 8yrs or so while I lived in Australia, I still referred to 'home' as Vancouver.  But 4yrs ago or so, I had unconsciously started to regard Melbourne as 'home'.  So moving back was actually a bit difficult psychologically and now, I catch myself still referring to Melbourne that way!   While in some ways I feel caught somewhere in the middle, I have still experienced a sense of belonging here where I grew up that I never quite realised that I missed.  There is something to be said about being able to connect with people who share a similar upbringing as you.  When I first went abroad, I accepted being 'different' as a necessary part of travel whether it be on a short term basis like on holidays, or on an ongoing long term basis as an expat.  I know that I can adapt quite easily to my environment.   

But merely adapting doesn't erase that fact you don't really ever fit in entirely and at at first, that was ok.

Don't get me wrong, I never consciously felt like an outsider while living in Australia--at least not all the time.  But now upon my return to Canada, I finally realize that the feeling was always there and it's been a pleasant surprise to find that gone now.  I feel like people understand me more, and vice versa.  It's just more 'comfortable' being me! 

So I think the answer to the question whether you can go home again or not lies within yourself and your expectations.  It's much like when you re-visit a destination that you had previously loved.  Why are you going back?  Is it based expecting that you will find things are they were the last time you were there?  If so, there is a good chance that you will be disappointed as things change.  But if you approach the return wanting to find a good experience within the existing framework which you had previously experienced, then you might be successful.  

We've been here for 6 months now, and maybe we've just been one of the lucky ones.  It's still early days yet but so far, I think we have settled in nicely.  Returning home has made me realise that I am truly a Canadian at heart. And how does that saying go?  Home is where the heart is.  Yes, expats, you CAN go home (if you want).

So what do you think?  Have you thought about going home or have you done it?  Leave us a comment below!

Koh Trong Paradise Island

by CamboGuide @ Cambodia Travel Guide

Koh Trong is a beautiful quiet island opposite the riverfront of Kratie Town, an almighty sandbar in the middle of the river. No cars, but carts, smiling peasants, craggy fishermen and a rich soil that man turned into an orchard, Koh Trong is a small paradise. It is a short ferry ride between town life and a slice of Cambodia’s rural ways.

Surrounded 8 months a year by white sandy beaches, constantly refreshed by the river’s breeze, the island of Koh Trong is some sort of an ideal Cambodia. The beaches call out to be lazed upon with a picnic after a dip in the Mekong.

One Year Home

by noreply@blogger.com (With 2 Kids In Tow) @ With 2 Kids In Tow, It's Backpacking We Go


Hard to believe that just over 2yrs ago, we were at the beginning of our year-long backpacking trip with our kids.  In some ways, it seems that it was a lifetime ago.  And now, it’s been over a year since we’ve been back to ‘normal life’.  While the past 13 months have been a bit of a blur, full of highs and lows, here's an update of where we're at:

In some ways it seems like our trip was just a dream, but because it was a shared dream, we know it was real.  That’s the good thing about traveling companions—you have someone who can vouch for your experiences and memories.  And traveling as a family is all the more reinforcing—we can supplement each other’s memories and thus keep the trip alive.  The many beautiful pictures we have adorning our walls at home also help too.

But don’t’ get me wrong—we don’t sit around all day everyday talking about our trip.  Far from it.  Real life is much too demanding to allow that.  However in the most unexpected moments, one of the kids will randomly bring up a memory that they have and ask us to expand on it.  ‘What was the name of that place where we went on that boat trip?’ or ‘Remember that waitress named Atune from Koh Phangan?’  The kids’ memories work in wonderous and unexpected ways!

And we still have random discussions on theology which began during our travels.  Recent events in our lives have also no doubt served to keep that line of enquiry alive.  Not sure what to think though when our 5yr old says things like ‘I know that dying is part of the circle of life’.

Definitely without a doubt, the kids have grown and matured a lot since we first left on our trip.  Then I was worried about our eldest child’s social skills and her lack of confidence.  Since coming home and starting school, she’s ‘blossomed’. She’s quietly confident and self-assured, although still a bit on the shy side.  But the friendships she’s since made or renewed, since returning home have all added to her sense of self. That’s the down side of traveling—kids don’t get enough opportunities to make friendships with kids their own age.

Looking ahead, it looks to be a busy year.  Our youngest started kindergarten/prep two weeks ago and loves being a school-girl at last. Already we have a nightly double dose of readers to go through as well as writing journals.  Both girls also have a small assortment of extra-curricular activities that we’re trying to balance.  There’s also a 3-week trip to Thailand planned for mid-year.  Despite our current hot Australian summer that sees us at the beach on average once a week, already I am longing for the carefree lifestyle that we had during our time on Koh Phangan last year.  While I do remind myself how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place with a nice lifestyle, near daily massages for $6USD, eating delicious freshly prepared Thai cooking and being together as a family without distractions of work, school, friends and activities are things that I can’t help but dream of at the moment.

Until then, I must remind myself to be grateful and thankful for what I have each and everyday.  And hopefully I will feel like writing/updating more too.

Commentaires sur Saigon – Phnom Penh en bus par Marine

Bonjour Léa, merci d'être passée sur le blog ! Nous avons récupéré nos visas le jour-même, dans l'après-midi. J'avais un papier de mon entreprise car je faisais faire un visa business, il est donc possible que la procédure ait été plus rapide à cause de ça. Dans tous les cas, compte 24h minimum, juste au cas où. Mais l'ambassade du VN à PP est vraiment efficace, tu ne devrais pas avoir de souci. D'après mes souvenirs, un multiple entrée 3 mois touriste est autour de 80-90$ mais ça fait maintenant un an et demi que je ne suis plus à Saigon, les prix ont peut-être changé (à l'époque où j'y étais, il était impossible d'avoir une grille de prix fixes de toute façon, ça changeait toutes les semaines...).

Ich hab gelesen, man kann von sihanoukville nach battambang mit einem nachtbus fahren. Nur wenn ich bei der app,(timetable Asia) diese Strecke eingebe, kommen immer 2 Busverbindungen, mit manchmal länger Wartezeit, bis es weiter geht. Und auch keine passende Zeit, sodass dieser über Nacht fahren würde. Mach ich da was falsch? Soll ich vor. Ort und ein Reisebüro für den nachtbus gehen? Wenn ja, wo gibt es in sihanoukville eines?

Insurance: Necessary Evil or a Waste of Money?

by noreply@blogger.com (With 2 Kids In Tow) @ With 2 Kids In Tow, It's Backpacking We Go



Insurance—what are your feelings about it?  Necessary evil or a waste of money?  Do you have home or tenants insurance in case of fire or burglary?  And insurance on your car should it be in an accident or be stolen?  Do you purchase travel insurance, even for the ‘short’ trips? Will your family be taken care of financially in the event of your death? Will you be taken care of should you be diagnosed with a serious illness?  Apologies in advance for the topic of this post, but if you’ve been following our blog, you will know that it has not been an easy time for our family lately.  Far from being behind us, it has made us look at ourselves a bit closer and realise that shit happens.  The question is then how can we be best prepared to deal with it when it does?


But first, a disclaimer:  Jim and I are by no means ‘poster people’ for the insurance companies.  Nor have we been the most ‘prepared’ people—probably better than some and worse than others.


I’ve always had tenants and homeowner’s insurance when I was younger, and of course car insurance.  Travel insurance was something that we took out sporadically in the past, although due to having the ‘2 kids in tow’ on this past big trip, we did make sure we were adequately covered.

Becoming parents has definitely changed us in terms of thinking more about the future and of being responsible for people other than our two selves.  But once again, in that regard, we still have a lot of work to do.

In addition, due to our recent events I have become quite focused with making sure that in the event of our early death, as parents, that we have done all that we can now to ensure that the girls will be adequately taken care of. As part of his job, Jim has life and disability insurance so that should something happen to him, the girls and I would have some financial security (or the money would go to their guardians to aid in their rearing). 

But until now, I myself have not had any life insurance.  It’s something that I’ve ‘been meaning to look into’.  Honestly, I am guilty of chauvinistic thinking here—that should Jim who is the main bread winner of our family pass away, we would be financially disadvantaged and would need ‘help’ ie insurance.  But should I pass away first, well, Jim would still be able to provide for himself and the girls, right?

Well, not necessarily.

If I wasn’t here, how would I want Jim to look after the girls?  And would he be able to work full-time while being both father and mother to them?  Who would tend to the ‘domestic duties’ that I currently undertake?  I’d want him to drop everything and put the girls’ care and needs first.  But in order to do that, he likely wouldn’t be able to work full-time and would need to hire help (after all, mother’s DO do the job of at least 3 people LOL).

Which brings us back to the issue of life insurance.

So I finally bit the bullet and opened that can of worms (yes, I like my clichés).  After many hours spent talking/emailing/waiting on hold, I am pleased to say that I am now insured so that if anything should happen to me, Jim could drop everything to look after the girls and not have to worry about working as well.

But then guess what?

Not 48hrs after my policy was in place, we were in a car accident.  Ok, it wasn’t that dramatic, and it was minor in the scope of things, but we did get a chance to utilise one of our other insurance policies (it wasn't our fault but our car was a write off) and boy, did we ever feel grateful that we had that well covered. 

But that’s another story.

Insurance is one of those funny things—it’s a lot of money at the time, and chances are you won’t need to use it but if you do, it sure comes in handy to help make the fall-out from a bad situation a little bit easier.  We’d like to think that we can control what happens to us, and that ‘bad stuff happens to other people’, but in case that’s not going to be true for you, I’d advise you to give the topic of insurance a good long thought.

Hallo Sabrina, das Busunternehmen, welches den Nachtbus zwischen Sihanoukville und Battambang anbietet, heißt Virak Buntham. Mit den Nachtbussen von Virak Buntham gab es schon den ein oder anderen Zwischenfall. Ich vermute das ist der Grund, weshalb diese nicht überall zu buchen sind. Schau z.B. hier: http://www.khmertimeskh.com/news/16702/virak-buntham--sexual-assault-/ Allgemein gehört Virak Buntham zwar zu den großen Busunternehmen in Kambodscha, hat jedoch nicht den besten Ruf. Aus diesem Grund habe ich Virak Buntham hier nicht die Auflistung mit rein genommen. Schreckt Dich das nicht ab, kannst Du direkt auf der Webseite vom Anbieter buchen: http://www.virakbuntham.com/ Viele Grüße, Patrick
