Well, what can I say...

I just bought tickets for me and my boyfriend to Bangkok in APRIL 2010!!! WOHOO!

We will be away for a whole month! ;-)

From Thailand, we will cross the border to Cambodia -- starting from the south (Sihanoukville, Kampot and Kep).

My plan with this trip is to explore the rest of Cambodia (because I didn't get to see the rest of the country back in Nov/Dec 2007), gather FRESH information and hopefully create new articles on Southern and Eastern Cambodia (Ban Lung and Sen Monorom). Trekking in the east and sunbathing in the south are the things we want to experience.

Another thing is that I will revisit Phnom Penh and Siem Reap.
When writing about my experiences for my website, I have to admit that writing about something that happened for almost 2 years ago can be tricky. That's because I can't remember ALL the details (both good and bad), and sometimes that makes the writing hard!

I only had one day at the Angkor Temples and have decided to explore the other temples (my boyfriend is so excited... He has never been to Cambodia)!

And since we're starting and ending the trip in Bangkok, I will gather more practical and relevant info about this capital. A hope is to take a fast trip to Eastern Thailand (but I don't want to raise my expectations too high). CAMBODIA is the real goal of the trip!

It's still 6 months left, but I just can't wait. Right now I'm trying to save money for the trip ;-)

Backpacking Tips Asia taking a BRIEF pause...

... I need to be out of the apartment by September 30.

In other words, instead of using my precious time on writing articles, I have to use that time on selling furniture, moving my stuff and finding a new place to stay!

Sorry about the inconvenience...
