How to get from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong Sanloem

I spent a lot of time figuring out which island of Cambodia to choose for our February vacation and after deciding to go for Koh Rong Sanloem (which is supposed to be quieter and less crowded) I was totally confused about how to get to the island. A lot of blogs, forums and official information from ferry services can be found on this subject, however to manage all the logistics seemed quite a challenge. First of all, you need to decide which ferry service to pick, second you need to know your timings (flight arrivals, departures, time to get to the airport and back etc…) and at last but not the least, you need to book your boat ticket online… […]

Resort review: Pearl resort (Koh Rong Sanloem, Cambodia)

This February we chose Cambodia for our short escape from European winter. After spending 3 days in busy Siem Reap, exploring the majestic Angkor temples, we decided to relax on a beautiful island of Koh Rong Sanloem. While checking carefully all rooms in Saracen Bay (the main beach and port on the island) I got the impression that we would be squeezed between hundreds of hostels and bungalows – and that is definitely not my cup of tea.

I wanted to know if we would be able to visit the Saracen Bay and go places we wanted to (the island has no roads […]

Fear of flying? Interview with a pilot and some interesting facts might help!

It all started on my trip to Vietnam; we had some modest turbulence during the flight for about 2 hours, and for some reason I was sweating and shaking like a leaf, waiting for the end to come. It probably had also a lot to do with the fact that I was flying alone and I definitely didn’t want to make my hairy sweetheart and orphan. Since this has been going on a lot lately (I guess the older I get, the more alive I want to be), I have decided to get familiar with my chances to survive up in […]

Intervju s pilotom: kaj vse gre v zraku lahko narobe?

Vas je strah letenja? Niste edini, po statistiki sodeč se s to fobijo sooča vsak deseti. In, verjeli ali ne, zadnje čase se je to dogaja tudi meni. Prvič sem težavo resneje zaznala lani na poti v Hanoi, ko smo imeli v zraku približno 2 uri zmerne turbulence. Ves čas sem se tresla kot šiba na vodi in samo predstavljate si lahko, kakšni scenariji so se mi pletli po glavi. Verjetno je k temu pripomoglo tudi dejstvo, da sem bila na poti sama in takrat bi človek dal vse na svetu, samo da še enkrat vidi svoje najbližje. Ker se mi strah pred letenjem dogaja vse pogosteje (očitno leta naredijo svoje), sem se odločila, da se malce bolj poglobim v […]
