Forgive me for going all Adele and broadcasting my love life to the world, but I’m writing this post as truth and integrity are important to me. Social media is full of positives and well that’s just beautiful – all that cake baking and sunny beaches, smiling faces and achievements. But we all know that life isn’t just roses, it’s a complex web of emotions and events and not all of those need to be shared.

Travellers say many things about Cambodia: the people are wonderful, the begging is extreme and that everything is super-cheap even by South East Asia standards. Spoiler: only one of these things is true!
I’m going to take you on a little journey, one that took us just over two weeks to cover from North to South Cambodia.

As most travelling girls with restless souls will tell you, adventure is their first love. Unlocking our planet’s secrets, exploring every ocean and getting under the skin of the myriad of earth’s cultures is what makes my eyes sparkle. The joy of moving, living a nomadic lifestyle and home being wherever we lay our backpacks is the life we choose to live. It’s never lonely and much of the beauty is in the solo journey. I’m so grateful that I had that experience but what happens when you meet your soulmate and they share the same dreams, passion for travel and nomadic soul as you do. Magic happens that’s what!
