Getting our feet wet

Words cannot express how much the Protheros have helped us ‘land’ in Phnom Penh. Bread & jam, cups of tea, Royal D, all-night fans, Tiger Balm (a pungent mosquito repellent & bite itch reducer) and SWIMMING!

We’ve now moved into our own place… but a heavy rainstorm means walking back through floodwater, in a country where sanitation and litter collection are… very basic. Win some, lose some. 🙂

Off to Cambodia

We’re off! After months of deliberation, planning, packing, and preparing the house for our lovely new tenants, it’s time to say farewell to Blighty.

A short train ride to London then two fairly long flights and we’ll be in Cambodia. It’s actually happening!
