So whilst travelling across Asia, I chose to do the overland countries first.
Meaning I can travel from country to country without the high cost of flying. The fact that I really don’t like flying anyway helps this decision.
But I did expect to use the bus, train and maybe the odd taxi if the journey was short. Having a car can be a benefit but then over half the countries actually drive on the opposite side to how I am used to.
Not to mention the way they drive!
Now I have been in Kampot for over 2 months I have had to accept that the use of bikes is a valuable asset.
Currently, I travel by Mountain bike, my journey from the farm to Kampot town usually takes me about 1 hour
( it is about 15km)
But with it does limit how much you can travel and how far you can go, even if you are quite fit
So the prospect of renting a scooter seems more appealing, and even the potential of buying a small motorbike to travel further afield is slowly entering my head.
