See You When You See Me

I'm about to go to sleep for the last time in my bed, my room, my guesthouse and what now feels like my city. It seems as though I've said this a million times already but I love Cambodia and am incredibly sad to be leaving. The goodbyes are by far the worst part. Saying goodbye to my students, friends around town and the other teachers was bad enough but I'm actually dreading saying goodbye to the guesthouse staff in the morning, who have become like my family.

All of that being said I feel confident that it's time for me to move on. Siem Reap is definitely a place I can picture myself living at some point but not just yet. There is still so much more I want to see and do before I commit to staying in one place for an extended period of time. Now is the time to get out of my comfort zone and into a new country with a new language, different customs and unfamiliar faces.

As the Khmers say, "see you when you see me" Cambodia - I'll be back! Next up: Thailand, Malaysia and Japan, stay tuned!
