Getting stale in Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I don't get it, Garry.

Seriously, I find many people's hassles begin with themselves (including me)

Travelling doesn't change you, beer does.

Came here to settle and stay from day one, went through countless can't bear it anymore phases alternated with i love it so much ones too.
Been here 15 years, not even excited to travel back to my mother land anymore.
Intend to be buried here ultimately.

I travel all over the world with my work nowadays but I still get excited when I land in PNP.

To me some places just have a hook which keeps you there. Phnom Penn has that hook but I,m buggered if I know what it is or why.

But some things never changed, I once travelled 25,000 KMs from home to escape myself only to end up in another place going "Oh, fucking you again, you followed me all the way here?"

Yep, as they used to say in the 60's Wherever you go, there you are. But, having said that those with a sensitivity to bad governance might be happier elsewhere.
