Find out what happened as I rode my bicycle from Kampot to Phnom Penh as I cycle Cambodia.
There is one comment that almost every traveler or tourist makes during the course of their trip. Here is why I think it's problematic.
Kep, Cambodia. Jungle clad mountains rolling into turquoise waters made it the perfect escape for upper class Phnom Penhoise. That is, until upheaval, genocide, and decades of civil war ripped Cambodia into pieces, leaving behind only the ruined mansions of Kep, a ghostly reminder of what once was here.
When you're wondering what to do in Kampot, you absolutely must ride up to Bokor Mountain, even in the rainy season.
As I cycled out of the Cardamom mountains, I experienced some of the hardest, most challenging days of the trip. What happened on that ride changed me, mentally and physically.
A trip report of the early days of my bike ride around Cambodia, including a detailed report of the trail from Battambang to Koh Kong through the Cardamom Mountains.
Starting on May 1, 2017, I will be riding a bike around Cambodia by myself for 36 days. Want to know my plans?
