We are in our new home in Siem Reap. It's been an adjustment, surprisingly so. This mercury retrograde isn't helping at all. With that being said, lets jump into it! We had so many "standards and rules" on what type of apartment we would have, the things we "needed" and our budget. Yea, that didn't work. Let's start with the obvious one - Budget We spent hours browsing the internet searching apartment listings in Siem Reap and comparing options, floor plans, add-ons, and inclusions to set our budget.

We are here, the wife, the kid and I. A little shy of a month now, seems much longer but that's life when you ageing. It's been interesting dealing with perception vs reality. The real life versus photo's and video's taken from a perspective that doesn't fit me and mine or my skin color. What's been more of an eye opener is everyone's eyes going big when we announce that we will be here for a year. Shocked is easily the word I can use to describe their facial expressions fo
