A relaxing summer’s eve in Copenhagen
My last stop on my short and sweet South-East Asian adventure turned out to be Bangkok due to cheap as flights. Luckily Thai new years was in full force which happens to involve vast amounts of water getting thrown about. This did mean minimal photo time, but it was a good time to drink and be merry. Fortunately there was a moratorium on rioting. Here be photos.Fire brigade doing their bit. Plush toy with swagger.Cool character in Chinatown.

I don’t know why people are attracted to tropical islands with long white beaches and calm crystal clear waters. Travelers have been known to “get stuck” at such a tropical location for months at a time. Admittedly, they do look nice in a photo. But for me, boredom sets in after the first hour of beach time. How many rays can one meat stick soak in before they look as leathery as a 40 year old Gold Coast meter maid. After my 5 day stint at the ever so tropical Koh Rong I decided on a new mantra… no waves = no fun.

Reminiscent of the shining, this old and abandoned french town is located on top of a big mountain just outside of Kampot in Cambodia. Apparently it was to be the Grand Palace and Casino, built for the colonial French settlers to live large and frolic in their amazing wealth. But work on it was abandoned in the 1940’s leaving behind an austere shell which was destined to become a sort after Cambodian wedding location. There is an even creepier and colossal new casino and hotel which is home to Cambodia’s largest empty car park.

The city of Battambang in the North-Western Cambodia is said to be known for 4 things as stated by Tripadvisor: the circus, the bamboo train, the bat cave, and most importantly… the number one cafe in the city. I ticked off 3/4.Comms tower sunset in Battambang, CambodiaThe trail of bats from the bat cave. 45 minutes of solid bat action, but where were they going…The high speed bamboo railway tourism adventure train.
