On December 27, 2004 we left for Bangkok to cycle to our friends in Saigon once again. The day before we left, we heard the news about the tsunami but we immediately realised that our route was far away from the disaster area. The main part of our trip was in Cambodia. Although the route was less adventurous than we had imagined, we really have enjoyed this holiday.
Cambodia appeared to be a very easy to travel country. The adventurous highlight was the unpaved part of 70 km of the highway from Sisophon to Siem Reap. The cultural highlight was our visit to the temples of Angkor. Furthermore, we have enjoyed the boat trip to Battambang, the ride to Sihanoukville, some excellent restaurants in Phnom Penh and Battambang and friendliness and hospitality of the Cambodians. Our visit to the Tuol Sleng prison in Phnom Penh has made a deep impression on us.
The number of cycling days during this holiday has been limited because Anke was unlucky and slipped by the swimming pool in Sihanoukville, bruising her arm. Cycling on bumpy or unpaved roads would have been painful and irresponsible. Therefore, we went to Saigon with some taxis and Mr. Son, where Ria and Ricco were willingly to welcome us earlier than expected. We have done very little in Saigon, only the photo exhibition about the ever present effects of Agent Orange is worth mentioning. We finished this holiday with a visit to a resort in Mui Ne to enjoy some sunshine, the sea, the beach and our books. We returned safely to Schiphol on January 28, 2005.
