2 WEEKS OUT: ARRIVING IN SIEM REAP

The air conditioner was at full blast. I was freezing when I woke up after about an hour of deep sleep. I checked the map on my phone to see where we were and it appeared that we were almost there.

As the bus stopped the conducted yelled on the aisle announcing that we’ve arrived in Siem Reap. I quickly gathered my things, double-checked, then got off. My big backpack was unloaded from the compartment as I stood on the sidewalk.

Disoriented and somewhat confused, I had to gather myself together and think of my next move. But that was easy, my stomach told me that the first thing I need was to eat.

I crossed the road seeing that there’s some kind of restaurant set up on the sidewalk. Seating myself to a vacant table. I gave the menu a good look. I was surprised at how expensive the food is in this particular store. It was $3-$5 a meal. Comparing it from Thailand and the Philippines, it was unexpected that this kind of store would have prices like that.

I ordered a $3 noodle soup dish anyway. I’m not sure though if I should call it a meal since that price didn’t even include water or a cola drink. It was tasty though, not remarkable but it was not bad. Other than my hunger, I also just wanted to collect myself to think straight, imagine being unloaded to an unfamiliar place in the middle of the night with no idea what direction to go to?

Tummy full, brain working right. Let’s get moving! I thought. So I got my bags strapped to me once again as I check where my hostel is on my phone. I just followed the map (you should really learn how to use google maps and other map apps, they very helpful) until I found a street that I thought was a shortcut to the hostel. It was dark and sketchy, but my bags were quite heavy and I’m tired. So I said, what the heck! I took the turn and my map updated the route.

After a short walk, I arrived at my hostel The Garden Village Guesthouse. I was particularly interested in this hostel as I saw on their website that they have spacious grounds and a nice big pool with a nice bar off it. I booked a dorm room which was $6 a night and I was sharing it with three other people only.

I signed the rules and regulation acknowledgment form and paid for the two nights I booked. After which I was brought to my room. It smelled fine to my relief. Tired from the trip, I just tucked my bag under my bed and called it a night.Related: oração de são josé dormindo pelas causas impossíveis, papaya cookies strain, jesse howard obituary, using process monitor to find missing dll, walking ghost aochi pictures, sun valley roadrunner 161, capacidade significado, jaden ivey vertical jump height, código civil contratos, the first taste of injustice of rizal, brett haber family, who paid for david ruffin funeral, msc virtuosa smoking area, portal transparencia balneario piçarras, clayton clay” williams,Related: cane corso yellow eyes for sale, videos of baby chihuahuas, daemon json dns search, golden retriever vs goldendoodle tiktok, chihuahua adoption charlotte, nc, bernese mountain dog hip dysplasia, goldendoodle seattle for sale, french bulldog breeders virginia beach, beagle rescue grand rapids, mi, best grooming scissors for poodles, chow chow westminster dog show 2022, siberian husky club of america trust, brittany puppies for sale new england, basset hound puppies for sale under $300, micro pomeranian for sale near me,Related: florida brittany rescue, pomeranian puppies for sale in cleveland, ohio, chihuahua brown long hair, docker: command not found jenkins, fluffy cardigan welsh corgi for sale, light golden retriever breeders near da nang, chihuahua eyes squinting, how to potty train a belgian malinois puppy, docker usb permission denied, rat terrier for adoption near madrid, whippet puppies near alabama, great pyrenees fighting coyote, docker compose zabbix agent, havanese puppies calgary, what to know about akitas,
