Eating dinner and having Angkor Beers in Sihanoukville, Cambodia

by Samuel on April 4, 2013

In our latest travel video we celebrated our one year anniversary by having a nice meal along the beach (barracuda set dinner), drinking Angkor beers and chatting about the current state of our travels along with revisiting the past (how we met) and what some of our future travel plans are down the road. Overall, we enjoyed the sunset views, delicious food and refreshing beer; however, we were hassled frequently by touts of all ages trying to sell us random things. Some even took our refusals quite personally by cursing and waving a stick in our faces – especially one delinquent Khmer teenage boy. Although it definitely did put a bit of a damper in our evening plans, we didn’t let it faze us too much, as we still managed to salvage the night and relish the time we had together. One of the highlights of the evening is when a cute cat came to visit us at our table. It hopped right up on Sam’s lap and started purring immediately. When our barracuda was delivered to our table we enjoyed feeding it little nibbles on the sand. We both talked about how we’d like to have pets in the future – most likely either cats or dogs – although we realize given our nomadic ways we’ll have to put that one on the back-burner for a while. Although we’ve been critical of Sihanoukville we still found a way to enjoy our anniversary.

Touts of Cambodia are pretty annoying, especially kids.
A funny story I witnessed on the top of one of Angkor Wat temples-
A tout boy with hands full of postcards, bracelets, and other souvenirs approaches a tourist and asks “What would you like to buy from me for one dollar?” A tourist quickly replies “Nothing”. A boy smiles happily and says “I’ll sell you nothing for one dollar” 🙂
