Instagramming Cambodia

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…

      It is very typical Cambodia isn’t it? There is always at least a few tuk tuk drivers lazing around in their tuk tuks, especially around popular areas such as markets.

    • Dean Wickham Feb 5, 2014

      Vibrations? No I can’t say that I have, Abirami. Perhaps it is something personal for you. I take it that you are religious?

      • abirami Feb 6, 2014

        no dean i am not religious , but vibrations just enter my body , how to describe it, i dont know exactly, it feels like tiny bubbles just bursting under u r skin, sometimes i feel this is how X 100 times yogis must feel when they are in eternal bliss, it feels gud actually after that , y i dont know ,it makes me smile ,is it becoz of the places or it is just me , i always wonder, , bye ,, continue u r eating trail…..
