Leaving the crowds and cities behind, we ventured to the beaches of Koh Rong Sanloem for relaxation, naps on the beach and a good breath of fresh air. Starting and ending our days eating cheese breaks and drinking the creamy sweetened iced coffees.  Trekking to Clear Water Bay and wading out in the sandy warm shallows, we got caught in the rain before taking shelter in a simple hostel, drinking tepid beer and wringing out our clothes. Saying goodbye to our Island Paradise and our new friends, we make it back to the mainland, just barely, after a wave-leaping, ocean-sprayingly wild boat ride. 


A one night stay along the river: watching the fisherman head to the sea for their nighttime harvest, we avoided the sharp heavy seeds dropping from the trees above. The music from the hostel down the way was keeping us awake, so we decided, “if you can't beat em, join em!”
