See that picture up there? That’s awesome. You know who took it? ME! That’s right, I took that photo and it is incredibly cool, it is. Look at that serene image from Angkor Wat, as the sun comes up over the horizon, illuminating the ancient temples. It was beautiful…it was ancient…it was…
…packed with people.
Thankfully, I managed to find a place where there weren’t 10,000 tourists standing in front of me in awe of our surroundings. In case you were wondering, we went to Angkor Wat for our October break. In case you were wondering where Angkor Wat is (and I know that there are a few of you…I could probably name names if I wanted to [I'm talking to YOU, Maake...you, too, Gillian], Angkor Wat is located outside the town of Siem Reap in Cambodia. Basically, it’s almost dead center in Cambodia. Explorers discovered these ancient ruins long ago, as it was a city that had been abandoned, though at one time, it had over a million inhabitants.
We had a bit of “temple fatigue” as we went along, for when you first get there, it’s amazing. Then the NEXT temple is amazing. And so is the NEXT one. Then, you’re kind of like, “Yeah, that’s an amazing temple. What time is lunch?” Still, we managed to have a good time and that’s that.
