I am finding that a combo of phone and camera photos is working out nicely. I’m taking separate photos on my phone to send to specific people, but I then can forget to take them on my camera because it’s too much work to take the same pictures of everything on two devices. sooooo anyway, if you notice a difference in photo qualities, that’s why!
We went on a tour of the floating villages today! It was originally going to be a full day, but due to strong winds it got cut to a half day. Oh well.
We first stopped along the way to take a look at a lotus farm. We even got to eat lotus seeds, which were surprisingly delicious.
Then we hopped on a boat and set off to enjoy the scenes! It was cloudy, but we didn’t mind it because it wasn’t as scorching hot.
We sat on the front end of the boat for a while. It was windy, so the water was rougher than usual – it made it all the more fun!
We took a 15 minute break at a floating gift shop – I skipped the shopping and enjoyed the little details and the views.
Alligator meat and skin is very popular in Cambodia… I felt bad for these cute little guys who weren’t just going to be pets…
I sometimes feel like I’m creeping on people, but it’s part of photography and I really love candid stuff.
creeping on Jennifer too…
I never take selfies, but since you’ve not really seen my face at all, here is my best attempt at a selfie out at sea.
We ended with a meal on a floating dining hall type place. They had hammocks and free alcoholic beverages and stuff and Jennifer and I felt like we were a little too young and poor to really be there. Haha! But it was fun and totally worth it. The tour overall was a newer experience (for me at least) and something that wouldn’t have been possible without a tour guide!
I ended up not feeling well the rest of the day when the tour had finished – I felt crummy the day before as well. Disappointing to miss open time to enjoy stuff, but I am thankful for cozy hostel beds, wifi to use, and books to read (currently going through the Harry Potter series for the first time EVER…….before you lose your mind, know that I was sheltered from Harry Potter during my childhood [which was not my parents’ fault btw, they were persuaded to do so and they regret it] so I’m late to the game. But I’m also experiencing what most people my age did when they were kids, so I feel like a kid and I LOVE it).
