CTB Take Flight

Ho ho ho it is that time of year where many people travel. Living abroad it is the one holiday pretty well everyone is going somewhere. Many people travel back to their home countries to share the holidays with friends and relatives, while others go on beach holidays or other fun travel destinations. Each year thus far we have gone home for Christmas, but this year is different. We are going to Siem Reap, Cambodia to see the temples of Angkor Wat.

I love ancient history and Egyptian and Roman art and architecture are my favourite. I love exploring old temples, churches and reading about days long gone. It amazes me how such incredible structures could be built without modern technology. Angkor Wat promises to dazzle and awe in the same way.

Bags are almost packed and 1 more sleep before we get on a plane to one of my most anticipated locations and adventures in travel. Since we have been living in Shanghai we have had the chance to see many amazing places and meet fantastic people. From the Terracotta Warriors and Great Wall, and huts on a hillside where every cell relaxed and became tranquil, to a hustle and bustle of a busy city. My love of history has built this next destination up in my mind as the best yet and I just can’t wait.

We are gone for 10 days and I will have my iPad, so I can try to blog. I do not have a cord to download photos from my camera to the iPad, so you may have to wait for images :0)

All the best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Travel safe….

Stay tuned….

      It was so incredible soon as we got off the plane and walked into the airport we could smell lovely flowers. The streets are filled with people. I guess this is the high season since it isn’t too hot. It is early morning and it almost feels chilly!

    • Already filled a memory card! Well actually thought I had deleted old pics from previous trip to HK so I filled it quickly. Luckily had a USB with me to save some and get ready to take more photos. The temples are so amazing I couldn’t resist. Soon as I get more consistent internet I will post.

  9. Wishing you a fun, joyful holidays. Spent post Christmas with relatives too outside Houston. A perfect holiday adventure.

    • It certainly has been an adventure and nontraditional. I wish my family could be here too. Technology is a wonderful thing. We got to Skype everyone.
      Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday 🙂
