Since everyone on the planet has an opinion on what they’re best travel destinations are around the globe, and since I have seen a small piece of the globe, and since I (like everyone else) have my own opinions, It seemed appropriate to throw out what I consider to be my own Travel Top Five. Now I happily confess that this list is based upon my own travel experiences, so it is… Read More

AM- Some general thoughts about Cambodia. I picked April-May because it was ahead of the monsoons. Its quite a nice time to be here. The days are hot and basically sunny all day.
