This week was amazing and one I’ll never forget from the building of a toilet from scratch! To the amazing loving, caring and beautiful people Patti and I got to work with through the week. I sometimes forget how good life is and the people that come into your life when least expected. Over and over I realize that doing for others along with caring about them can be the best feeling and leave you with the best reward☺️ #toiletcrew#wearebamboo#cambodia#missingyoualready
What makes for a good adventure? I have been to quite a few far away places, but this trip up the Mekong River through Cambodia and Vietnam blew me away. It defied my wildest expectations. I think that’s what got me, being surprised and delighted every time I turned a corner, it’s hard to have that experience in this day and age where information about every square inch of the planet is available at our fingertips. This trip changed my perspective on everything from food (I ate a tarantula🕷), to architecture (like this cool temple), and what you need to live happily (not much). If you read this far, I appreciate your interest in my travels, have you been somewhere that really changed your perspective?
While travelling through Cambodia we made a stop in a town called Skuon, specifically, its Spider Market. Apparently, the town is so infested with spiders that the locals took to frying and eating them, and of course, serving them to tourists (along with scorpions, mealworms, cockroaches etc.) Safe to say, being greeted off my tour bus by a kid dangling a fried tarantula in my face was an unusual welcome! But trying them was *not* for me... Would you give them a go? 🕷

Landed in Siem Reap and within 15 mins of checking in to our hotel, we were on the road to Angkor Wat to buy our tickets and catch the sunset..
Anyway, this morning, I started thinking a little bit about what it would be like to travel for a living. I have been doing it for 13 days, i.e. travelling while shooting videos - and I am exhausted! Would travelling still be as fun if you had deadlines and obligations during the trip? When I used to work in training, we had to travel for work all the time! I hated it. Cause we barely had the time to kick back, relax and really absorb the new environment.
@thejeremytoh keeps saying we have the best job in the world! I totally agree with him.. Well, one of the best jobs anyway. It's just super tiring too! I guess anything worth pursuing takes energy and dedication. And the more of yourself you put into it, the higher the chances of success!
If you look at this picture, you can see the @djiglobal Mavic Pro still in the bag beside me. Well, I tried flying it and I guess there is a reason it's all packed up neatly in the bag on the floor. Why would they disallow drones in Angkor Wat? Weird.. More of this in the videos - that should be released in about a month or 2! 😅

(I’m going to make this the official Ching Ching appreciation account, like what people do for their kids and pets and things that they like taking photos of, but feel guilty about subjecting the world to, except to other weirdos who are into that stuff. I’ll be posting all my personal NON-Ching photos at @sincerelyjoejoe. This will include bikes, and “artsy” shots, and other dumb shit that has NOTHING to do with Ching. Not a single Ching-related photo over there. Zero Chings. 👍)
Featured here is Ching looking all cute at Preah Khan. How does she make it look so effortless?? This was between bouts of sneezing, which I captured in video, so get ready for that extreme cuteness tomorrow! 😻
Angkor Wat está protegido por la UNESCO, está compuesto de muchos distintos templos incluyendo el templo más famoso Angkor Wat y la tumba Angkor. Para poder ver los templos necesitas como 3 días. Es muy caluroso, pero vale la pena la aventura.
claro que las mujeres se tienen que tapar los hombros y las piernas, y los caballeros no. Otro día que va, ¿no?
Youu gals & guys are amaziiing! My mentorship program was sold out before I could reply to everyone! This makes me so much more motivated to help you reach your dreams, that I might do another one sometime soon, maybe not as big as this one tho. ✨
How about the beach, from 1-10?
A throwback to the most amazing Cambodian beach we could find 🌴
