Introduce Yourself

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.

Hey mate.

Those to things that you speak off, not drinkin and staying in shape. Are the two biggest demons for 99.9999 % od travelers and expats on KoW.
Again, you are hanging out in the wrong places. A lot of my buddies are runners and we train for Ultras. Fit enough for you?

I am sure not many fit people there, that is why the only reason I go to Soksan is for the excellent "L'Annexe" and #136 for the Sun & Moon. Never go to Victory Hill.

What's up group? :D

I'm currently in Seattle but, probably coming to your lovely kingdom in a year or so. I lived for a few years in Taipei and about a year in mainland China when I was younger, more than a couple years ago. *cough*. I've been wanting to get back to the region for quite a while. I appreciate the info you all are sharing here. BTW: Even though I'm trying to work out other options, I'll probably need to teach some English to get the ball rolling there so, try not to flame me too hard. lol. I taught in Taiwan and China the whole time I lived there and it wasn't bad. I was actually one of the few expats who I knew that didn't mind it as a job, most of the time anyway.

Any general info or suggestions you might have for a newbie to the region (I know, don't come there. lol) fire away.

Have a good one, and thanks for having me here!

Hey, the mention of running caught my attention. :D I'm a trail runner here in Seattle and am tentatively planning a move there. Is there much in the way of trail running (once I adapt to the heat and humidity)?
Thanks!
*edit* Nice. Just watched a vid on the Angkor Ultra. The trails look pretty nice there. Looked like a well organized and well attended event to boot!

Hey, Did you know that running is the oldest martial art and defense known to mankind. If you are good at it you will never lose a fight .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
