    Week 24: Below

    Posted on

    I had wanted to return to Angkor Wat anyway, primarily to get better photos. The first time I visited, in August 2013, the weather on the day of our visit had been overcast and not that great for photography. It wasn’t even bad enough to be interesting – it was just a big bundle of ‘meh’. Added to that, I was still using my Canon 400D, which I bought with my first student loan instalment in 2005! Shortly before the trip, the light meter readout had decided to stop working. Fortunately, it came back just a short time after arriving at Angkor Wat, so I was able to come away with some good shots, but not many.

    First Impressions: Siem Reap, Cambodia

    Posted on

    The very first impression of Cambodia was obviously of Siem Reap International Airport (REP) which, I was astonished to find, was quite a modern and fancy affair. Granted, we did have to walk across the apron, from the bottom of the steps from the aircraft across to the terminal, but being only a few hundred metres, a bus would have been frankly insulting. Once inside the aggressively air-conditioned building, everything was neat and clean and modern.
