Anxious, apprehension, excitement, nervous . . . it’s my first time

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.

Anxious, apprehension, excitement, nervous . . . it’s my first time

Post by yong » Tue Jul 31, 2018 8:39 pm

Yes guys these are what I am feeling right now as I am posting this.

Tomorrow will be my very first time that I’m stepping into Cambodia.

Any advise? Any words of wisdom? Any warning?

You have been in the region long enough so it shouldn't be any huge deal. Where are you arriving at? Are you driving?

Such a blessing to find such levels of excitement in simple things. I hardly ever feel excited about anything. :(

....when I cross paths with 'people of enthusiasm', I usually cross the road though.

I'd be excited if I was visiting a country for the first time, especially one as mysterious as this.

Yeah right. I don't get excited by that. I don't even get excited if there's a dozen bottles of wine waiting for me.

Sorry to say but you can kiss those lovely banquets in Thailand Good-by. On the other hand there is no shortage of therapists.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Bring dollars when you do the visa on arrival not baht, they will rip you off if you pay with baht.

That's simple then, I thought you might be driving in from Thailand and that would be a bit more difficult. It's not that different from Thailand, maybe a bit rougher round the edges but also friendlier.
