Flashback Friday – Adventures in Battambang, Cambodia

Memorial at a killing field outside Battambang

I spent a full afternoon cruising through floating villages to arrive in Battambang.  It was here that my motorbike guide gave me his first hand account of living through the Khmer Rouge genocide, and later invited me to eat dinner with his family.  In the most unassuming, and seemingly random location, I had several of my most memorable moments of the whole trip around the world.

The kindness of strangers can have that kind of an affect on a traveler.

The dog eating part was a little bit revolting. ;-(

But the photos were absolutely wonderful! Have you considered sharing them on travel sites like trivago?

In any case, thanks for the great story!
