A quote that reminds me why...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain

We survived traveling overland from Pakse, Laos to Siem Reap Cambodia (more on that later) without getting massively ripped off or having to bribe the border officials too much, and we got to travel with a professional musician and magician. We're now in Siem Reap having met up with a childhood friend of Becca's and a group from Oregon and Washington. As a result, much temple visiting is going on for the next few days so it'll be awhile before there are any major updates.

Check in next week for an update on our visit to the Angkor temples and the very heartwarming way we spent my dad's birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPS!).

Cheers-

Brian

I agree with your Mark Twain quote - you will have NO complaints that you haven't done anything!

If only I had paid closer attention to Mark Twain's writing!So much catching up to do, and so little time for us to get it done. Thank you for letting us enjoy your adventures through your journal and pictures.
