Travel is never complete without the people you cross paths with along the way. They infuse your experience with a different kind of soul, a depth, and a dynamism nothing else could fulfill. However pretty or rotten a place is, it’s always a smile across the street from a local or a shared memory with a stranger that becomes your trip’s clincher.
I haven’t been to many places yet, but I am certain that the people in Siem Reap are some of the best you could ever meet. They’re quiet, gentle, and polite, and their smiles are so bright its warmth just washes over you. A huge part of why I fell in love with Siem Reap is because I fell in love with the people; from our hotel’s staff, to the vendors at the Night Market, to the old men and women and little kids at the temples, to our amazing tuk tuk drivers. Everyone I met was just love.
And then of course there were my amazing friends, who made about 60% of this trip. They are love!<3
What the heck, Now my feet all are itchy for a destination again. Haha.
