Location: Sihanoukville, Cambodia

MapGot to the beach in Sihanoukville just as the sun was setting on Sunday, jumped into my bikini and went for a swim. Wonderful!! White sand, clear blue sea.. blar blar blar, don't want to make you too jealous!
So good to chill out and relax after a few hectic days.
Quite an experience being on a cambodian beach - for start the acommodation is free (although a little basic) and the beach is a hive of activity - the locals are milling around all the day selling fruit, jewellery, massages and food. Felt really luxurious today as I had my laundry done for me and got an hour long massage for $3! Everything is so cheap! And there are loads of lovely little friendly bars that continue into the early hours. Not going to be a beach bum for too long though - got a tan, so heading off to the Cambodian border by boat tomorrow as there is more of SE Asia for me to explore! xxxx
