Making this world a better place

After a half an hour ride in a tuk tuk on one of the bumpiest roads (yep, organization I am volunteering for – Cambodian Child’s Dream Organization (CCDO) – still doesn’t own a car – which shows how carefull and thoughtful they are when it comes to spending their hard raised donations), we finally arrive at one of…

Value of drinking water

One of the activities of the organization I am currently volunteering for is building water wells – based on donations of people like you and me, people that realise that not everyone on the world has an easy access to drinking water. Can you imagine? Drinking water, something that majority us take for granted!? This…

Morning @ Angkor Wat

Was it worth getting up at 4.30 to see the sunrise at famous Angkor Wat? Yes and no, to be honest. The main temple site is rather huge, the sunrise was a nice one, but seeing all those endless crowds of people going there… all doing the same, all taking those same photos from that…

When universe conspires…

…or maybe I shall better say “when friends read your mind?” In any case, the fact is that I have a blog! I have a blog! I need to say this out loud one more time! I have my own blog! I can’t believe it! I know, for some people it is just a simple thing,…

Even though I haven’t really experienced mountains as I have imagined and looking for, I have at the end experienced so much more. Living for 4 days in a jungle, where forest was our sleeping room, our kitchen and dining room and nearby river or a small stream our bathroom and a shower, was just…

Morning at a Buddhist temple

One of the advantages of these types of travels, when one is not constantly moving around and hopping from one place to another, but staying longer in one spot, is that you get to know people a tiny bit better; let’s say enough for them to invite you along on a visit to a temple….

Evening calm

As everyone who knows me is aware, the evening is my time. I enjoy the warm rays of the evening sun and can never get tired of its charms. Today I could not resist taking these beautiful serene shots. There are many more on my phone, but I’ll save them for dark winter months in…

Not lost, but found

Sometimes when we are not searching for something particular, but we are just curious enough, we get to find and come across amazing hidden places… I found this one yesterday… and had that pier just for myself… It was another great day exploring the island with the motorbike.
