I'm on a big jet plane With my briefcase and crime in my veins I'll be the first to toast To my rowdy soul
But here we are the rolling people Cant stay for long We gotta go The Verve, The Rolling People
looks like i got really burnt today... really cant be too grumpy tho, iv hardly got a tan up untill today.. that was the reason why i had left my suncream at the hostel. well, also cos it leaked everywere in my bag the other day..
so did best part of the day seeing some of the temples outside of the core group around Angkor Wat. was cool to see and a lot less crowded. there are HEAPSA tourists. Adam was telling me in Laos that the main Angkor Wat gets half a million visitors a year... craaaazy.
oh and another thing is the people. adam told me about them too. the kids are sooo gorgeous its almost impossible to say no to all the things they sell. iv got myself a few common responses now tho -
"really, what would i do with a tablecloth!" "no i dont have a girlfriend and even if i did i wouldnt buy her gifts!" "a scarf! its way to hot for scarfs!"
they always get the joke, and are fun to joke with. OH and when you say your from australia theyre hillarious!
i've decided that now is the time for me to make my first overseas endeavor, and so i am doing a bit of traveling, doing a bit of working, and mostly just doing a bit of everything.
so i leave (or have already left!) Sydney on March 3 for numerous overseas locations: some already planned, many not.
wish me luck!
to get in touch with me you can leave a comment on one of the blog posts, email me, or if you're lucky, catch me on msn or skype
