Most Memorable Travel Experience
Visiting S21 and The Killing Fields in Phnom Penh on the same day was one of the most memorable days of my life as I've never felt such raw, deep emotions. Walking down the road with tears streaming down my face a group of young Cambodians came over to comfort me. Amazing country, amazing people. A little piece of my heart and soul is still in Phnom Penh.
In 2016 I completed me first long trip around the world thinking that would scratch my itch and quench my thirst for travel. It didn't. It broke my savings account but lighted a fire in me. I don't know when I'm going again, certainly not for a big trip, I just know that's not the end of my adventures.
