I'm nuts, I suggested going to Cambodia by train...but we spend like 6 hours in a 3rd class Thai train for 200 km... 2 days ago I was in a Shinkansen doing 500km in less than 2 hours ha ha ha. But on the other hand, I like it! Our train depparts at 5.50 AM from Bangkok and arrived at Aranyapayet arround 12h :lol
Thai people are amazing I still remember a young couple that give us one seat for being Aioh and me together... and she stays 3 or 4 hours sit on her BF (I think)!
Once at Aranyaprathet we look for a Tuk-Tuk that drive us to the Border (like 10 minutes).
Houston, I have a problem!
During all of this trip, many massagist told her that I wasn't flexible "Lady, your husband/BF/Friend is not flexible", I'm really flexible and here is a fact, I jump to the tuk tuk and CRAAAAAK! my shorts get broken on.
Our Tuk Tuk driver lead us directly to a trap, he stops in front of a kind of Cambodian officers that tell us they can pass us on the border without problems, because our visas are wrong, bla bla bla :p but again the Nanny save me, we lead to the market crossing the border walking and of couse millions os children come to receive us "nyam nyam", "One dollar sir" Wow! this children talks much better english than me(Ok, I will practice more :p).
I was a little bit annoyed about the conflict between Thais and Cambodia , but when we go to the cambodian border, she haven't any problems, so we are in Cambodia.
While a lot of all kind drivers were trying to steal us, a guy from UK, Daniel aproach us, he looks so lost, he wanted to share the transport, no problem! Now she have to take care of 2 kids! Meanwhile i became more and more nervous, Why? She have got everything under control! Daniel also was becoming nervous:
Daniel: What happens?
JC: Don't worry she will solve it
JC: Let her do and you will see...
And of course she solve it by 50$ (I tell her 50$ was ok, don't spend more time reaching 40 or 45$) so 17$ each!
Famous bumpy road!
Yeah I heard a lot of this road and have to say that didn't deceive me, it was really Bumpy, idiot me! I expect to be in Siem Reap in a couple of hours.
