Happy New Year from Sihanoukville
Happy 2022, or is it 2020 II: Electric Boogaloo?
SIHANOUKVILLE - Happy New Year! While the pandemic rolls into its third year, Cambodia is defying the Covid trend of the rest of the world. We shall see what it looks like after another month of being reopened.
Considering how much I have to cover in Cambodia, my publishing schedule for the next month will be dedicated to Future Southeast Asia. I just posted a Phnom Penh construction update, and a Sihanoukville update will be next week. I will eventually do a Sihanoukville travel-related blog post for Nomadic Notes.

I have been following Torbjorn “Thor” Pedersen and his quest to visit every country in the world without flying for some time, who had nearly finished until the pandemic struck.
I still remember the day in the last nineties when a friend who was travelling to India showed me this thing called Hotmail so I could keep in contact with them.
