The night is never ending in Bangkok.

This was the biggest tiger at the Temple. His did not like me touching him so he whipped me with his tail. Stacey went before me and got a good kick from this guy.

The view from above Railay. The best place and beach in Thailand.

Welcome to Siemreap, Cambodia. Nothing in our lives prepared us for what life in Cambodia is like.

Angkor Thom is place of stone heads, all of them smiling.

Walking our way out of Cambodia.

Stacey and I are riding a scooter while taking this photo.

The first mistake we made was leaving the south of Thailand. After Phi Phi Island we stayed in Railay. This is the best place we have been in Thailand. Beautiful cliffs all around and once agian no cars, only feet here. We loved it there and we should have stayed but we decided to take the 12 hour over night bus to Bangkok. It sucked, but we made it alive. We did some more sight seeing in Bangkok and then we did a day trip to the Tiger Temple. This place has real big tigers that the monks take care of and you can pay them to pet the giant animals. It was crazy and it would never be allowed in the Western World. Then the next day we went to Cambodia. Like I said we should have stayed in the south of Thailand. We got scamed on the bus ride, then you got crap hotel and the place is a bit scarey. It all worked out fine and we were albe to see Angkor. Although we were depressed by the way things were around us, we did enjoy the temples and the experience, once it was over. After another 12 hour travel day we made it back to Thailand. Now we are spending a few days on the beach before we go to Taiwan to see Ed in his world. Traveling is not like a vacation, it is like having to go somewhere on a budget.
