If you haven’t noticed already, I took a lot of photos when I travelled through Cambodia. If you think I’ve taken a lot of photos from what I’ve shared on this blog, well, you still have no idea. My hard drive is full of them. When I look at all of the photos I took, it makes me wonder how I found time to do anything else when I was there. Anyway, the point is that Cambodia is such a photogenic place that I found myself constantly pressing my shutter button.
Of course, my DSLR camera wasn’t the only one getting a work out. My phone’s shutter button got pretty worn out as well, and as I do on all of my trips these days, I made live photo updates on Instagram for the duration of my trip. In today’s post, I’d like to share my favourite Instagram photos from Cambodia. Ah the memories…
