Cambodia is a truly unique place. With such a chilling recent history it is hard to forget the country's past suffering. Although the Cambodians have made progress and have seen two decades of relative stability, there is still no doubt that the country is struggling to erode corruption, especially in politics. There is also a real feeling that many of its citizens are living on tuppence. Signs of scarcity are prominent, with littered villages hosting large families crowded in small houses.
Regardless of this, from the pictures you will see that if we look past the material and infrastructural differences between Cambodia and the west, you can see some very happy, smiley people. Personally, I was inspired by their relaxed and appreciative approach to life. Every Cambodian I met was friendly and welcoming and always happy to share stories of their culture. I found that it was the people of Cambodia that made my adventure so special.
