My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

DMK: Phnom Penh, Cambodia - Kampot, Cambodia


"Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second..." - William James

DAY 8 - (25/10/2012 – Thursday)
Route: Phnom Penh - Kampot, Cambodia
Distance: 175km
Hotel: Heng Reak Smey Guest House, Kampot

(Tired bikers, but still energetic...)

We didn't have breakfast and there was no hot water even for a hot Nescafe. Started riding after 0800 and thronged the massive early morning traffic jam. Stopped to refuel and fixed Bakar's flat tyre. The mishaps of yesterday’s fall and today”s flat tyre made Bakar temperamental and moody even at a simple joke.

It was a leisure ride to Kampot as the road is good. We arrived early and rested at Riverside View Hotel while waiting for the organizer to fetch and bring us to a muslim retaurant for mee soup lunch.

(The Kampot bridge, partly destroyed and rebulit...)

We checked in a Heng Reak Smey Guest House, booked by the DMK organizer. After a short rest we went for a late lunch of prawns and crabs. The group then took a van to Kep beach to watch the sunset and bought more crabs for dinner later.

(Catching crabs for dinner...)

We took a stroll for dinner at Ustaz Sulaiman's house. After a glass of teh tarik, we walked back to our hotel under the moon shadow of 10 Zulhijjah.
