A Quick Hello

sunny 33 °C

We've arrived in Siem Reap (Cambodia).

Keith and I both have an amazing intuition about Cambodia and, since arriving, we have been overwhelmed at the generosity of spirit around us.

No matter where you go in the world, it is the people who make it.

Cambodians are wonderful people and we already have such a fantastic vibe.

We're meeting Pip (the volunteer co-ordinator for the school in Preychrouk) tomorrow morning and heading out to the school afterwards. Wow!!!!

There will be many, many photos so keep your eyes on this blog!

Slater - ok, Sandra might be the only one to get this salutation, so - tarra for now.

We've moved countries!

Now in Laos, heading our way to Cambodia to do our volunteer experience - as a true Scots woman says "I Cannae Wait"!!!. Need to get the Irish equivalent from Keith :)

Took an amazing bus and long boat ride today, so proud of myself for now being able to go across a river without fearing the sound or fin of Jaws - go on, chuckle out loud.

Had wonderful news about our volunteer stuff and Keith and I are very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very excited. Hey, you guys know me - always up for amazing contribution! Fantastic that Keith is of the same spirit.

Had a local beer tonight and am humming "It's My Life' by Bon Jovi. Marvellous (although somewhat intoxicated, hee, hee).

Must head for sleep now, we've got a 6 hour boat trip tomorrow to take us to our next destination.

Gosh, I love life...

Hope this message finds you, our reader, ecstatically happy :)

We're just back from an amazing day quad biking and white water rafting.

Pictures to follow soon.

We're also getting a DVD of our white water stuff and will try and load it up to our site - I promise you, you will laugh your cotton socks off. Or, for the ladies, your black opaque tights (yep, I've heard it's darned cold back home - great wellies, hats, scarves and gloves weather. It's colder up here in Chiang Mai - only about 24 degrees, sorry, I know, I know...)

If we can't load it our DVD, there will have to be many popcorn nights around mine (wherever the heck that's going to be!).

Have a scan at what we've been up to and the friends we've made :)

We came to Chaing Mai last night - amazing 12 hour bus ride - woah!

Going to stay here for a week then we're thinking of going to do our visa run to Cambodia instead of Vietnam. There is a new school looking for volunteers to help out. Keith would like to do some painting/decorating and I'd like to set their computer up and write out some jotters for the kids to start school. Now that will be contribution if we can get it all organised.

David and Nok travelled with us and we're going to meet up with Ben and Dave from Aus and hang around here for the next few days.

I'm going to try and keep this a wee bit more up to date - keep your fingers crossed!!!!

Update

The lights of Rawai are keeping us here for a few more days, then the rocks of Krabi will beckon closer.

Thought I should post something just incase you think we'd deserted this planet and gone to Mars :)

Haven't made it to Patong yet, although the 'ping pong' show is still on before we head to Krabi. Giggling even more now coz I know what it is. Perhaps my feedback will only be a few descriptive words - don't want to get anyone in trouble for reading dodgy stuff on our blog!

Keith is teaching me how to play poker - good to get the brain going (at least once on our trip!). It is a major step up from my classic 'SNAP'.

Off now to... I don't know. Sit in, chill, watch the game and have a bud. Hee, hee - a large glass of Spy Classic, I reckon.

Hasta La Vista
