Cambodia

As I write this post, my heart gets heavier by the word. A trip so sweet yet so short, so fulfilling yet capable of leaving one feel so hollow. 3 days is surprisingly more than enough to discover Siem Reap but when it’s time to head home, the thought of spending a whole month at the ruins doing absolutely nothing grabs you by the mind; making you think thrice if you have made the right decision. The answer is simply subjective / subjectively simple – depending strongly on whether you are a tourist or a traveller. I knew right away there and then that I was born with el síndrome del eterno viajero
