the joys of travel


For the first time in a very long while, I missed my daily post yesterday. And just like the last time, because of ill-health.
We’d scheduled a tour of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom (Bayon temple) and Ta Prohm. All was peachy until we got there when I was overcome with nausea and felt very faint – it was also incredibly hot which didn’t help at all. Despite my reluctance, we cut Angkor Wat short and I napped in the car while Don checked out the Bayon temple with our guide. 

We came back to the hotel around midday for a rest, a shower and some anti-nausea drugs and we headed back in the afternoon to see Ta Prom – which was really quite amazing. 

Don was feeling none too fabulous either, so we skipped dinner and spent the rest of the evening sleeping and recovering. 

Now thankfully feeling about 85% (as opposed to the 2% of yesterday morning) and managed to get out and about today.

We’re back to Angkor Wat tomorrow for a second attempt before we fly on to Hanoi.

(It’s almost like I need to plan a week of pre-holiday to acclimate health-wise before I start the actual holiday)

    Enjoy Hanoi! I think you will like it. Make sure to have an egg coffee at Cafe Pho Co in 11 Gai Street. And eat all the street food. Yes, you will probably get sick, but it will be totally worth it. And visit Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum for the complete communist state experience.
