Cambodia through Instagram

Hi guys, I’m back!

Actually, I have been back in Penang since Saturday but am only getting around to posting today. Last night I dropped Carina off at the airport and am so sad and lonely now that she is gone. After spending 24/7 together for 21 days in a row, being on my own again is bizarre and disorienting. It feels like I am missing a body part or something. Maybe I am just missing part of my heart :-(.

Friends goofing off in Cambodia

It was absolutely wonderful traveling with Carina but now it is back to life as usual here in Penang. The good news is that I fly home in 3 weeks! Hooray!! USA! Dear lord, I miss America. I have yet to purchase a return ticket but am planning on staying for a least a month. Or maybe longer… Who knows? Perhaps I will stay until my parents kick me out ;-).

Now I am sure you want to hear all about our travels around South East Asia. Let me tell you, we had a great time galavanting around Cambodia and Thailand but it was HARD. We had several mishaps, falls, bruises and breakdowns but ended up having the time of our lives. I would do it again in a heartbeat… just give me some time to recuperate! Collectively, we took about 1,600 pictures and I cannot wait to share highlights of our trip here on Kirsten Captures.

For now I will share some Instagram shots from each location. First up, Siem Reap!

Straight chillin’
Legends of the Hidden Temple anyone?

Hey what’s up?

Wow that is certainly a lot of Instagram pics from Cambodia! Yes the fish pedicure was absolutely insane and tickled like crazy. The fish in this tank were enormous and I could feel their sharp little teeth munching away at my nasty feet. It was weird.

Can you even imagine how many pictures I took on my real camera? Yikes!

Next I will share Instagram photos from Chiang Mai, our favorite destination of the trip. I hope you enjoy!
