For a number of reasons I have decided to discontinue this blog. The main reason is that I have become aware that WordPress has been placing advertising on my blog. I never wanted the forum where I share my experiences and ideas to be used to promote products and services, particularly those I do not support. I have contacted WordPress about this, but the only way to stop this is to pay not to have adverting. I actually have no problem paying, as I understand services like this have to make money some how, and people need to be paid. However, I disagree with the way this was done, and for me it’s the principle of the matter (that part is supposed to be read in a poncy voice).

Despite this, it also seems like a good time to end this blog. I started it to share my experiences in Cambodia, and that time is coming to an end. I leave Cambodia in three sleeps and will be returning to Sydney. Who knows where to from there.

My year in Cambodia has been a very difficult and a very wonderful one. I have learnt a lot about myself. This has been both quite terrifying and empowering and believe I am a better person for it. It seems every ten years I rediscover myself. It may say something about me to note that the last time I did this I was also in Cambodia. Cambodia has always held a special place in my heart, and I anticipate returning here regularly for many years to come. I hope that my tales have encouraged some of my readers to think differently and maybe even venture out a little bit, whether it be to Cambodia or somewhere closer.

The end of this blog by no means signals the end of my opinions and photos being forced upon the world. Please follow me on twitter at or on Tumblr at

Thank you so much for sharing this time with me and I wish you all the best.
