Loose yourself in Angkor Wat

Cambodia is one of the most beautiful countries in the entire world. You could spend an entire lifetime there and still have a whole host of things you have never done. However, if this is the first time you are visiting Cambodia, you should spend an extended amount of time in Angkor Wat.

Angkor Wat

The Angkor Wat is the largest temple in the world, and one of the most stunning constructions ever built. It is a surprise it has not been named one of the Seven World Wonders yet! The Angkor Wat was built in the 12th century, and is spread over a 500 acre territory. It’s an incredibly well preserved temple and depicts all the power and skill of the Khmer dynasty.

The Angkor Wat is the main temple, and it is supposed to be modeled after the universe itself. There are a number of bas reliefs depicting various fables from Cambodian mythology, and a lot of sculptures of Vishnu. The temple looks absolutely stunning, covered in undergrowth and surrounded by beautiful fields.

The main temple is located in the middle of the Angkor Archaeological Park, which spreads over 180 square kilometers. A number of other temples line, from the 9th to the 15th century are scattered around the archaelogical park.

If you are a fan of exploration and ruins, take a few days to explore the Angkor Wat. It is a once in a lifetime experience you will never forget.

Things to do in Vietnam

So I was looking at some things I’d like to do when I go to Ho Chi Minh City. I’ve found quite a few things on tripadvisor that look pretty interesting both historical and night life. I think there are a lot of things to do that you could really get involved and soak up the history of the city and the politics of the region. It’s an exploding country and the city really shows that. I am certain there will be more than enough sites to visit in the city and would love to visit some of the memorials from the Vietnam war. I was checking out some other trip reviews and this one hit my fancy because its a 3 day trip and gave some good insights into things I can do in the city in a short amount of time. Looking forward to getting a few days to check out all of this stuff and really interested in checking out the reunification palace and the war remnants museum if I can. Also the emperor jade pagoda looks like a really great site. I am hoping as well to find a good motorbike rental so I can get around without having to worry about taxing taxis everywhere.

Update from the Traveler- Sweden

It’s been awhile since I posted, I had actually fell in love and don’t want to take this blog into something I destined it not to be…all about me.

I wanted to share my journey of a guy traveling the world after selling his stuff and having enough money to see the world and experience it first hand. The truth is, love comes with it.  Every…single…time.

Enough about that.

I recently flew out and landed in Stockholm, Sweden. If you haven’t flow into Stockholm you are missing out. The airport sits right by the sea and it looks like you are going to skirt right across those ocean waves, but alas, you glide into one of the most modern cities in the world. 

I chose to use the modern transit, which is amazing, and hit the biggest art and cultural attractions you can before taking the train to another Swedish community you can’t miss.

Gothenburg is one of those cities you have to visit Sweden to even know of.  Well, maybe not, but until I landed here I wasn’t aware of everything it has to offer.  As I took this amazing train ride I was researching the history of this beautiful city. Did you know it made the list of the top 21 places in the WORLD to live? Not Europe, the WORLD!

Driving to Gothemburg is something I would recommend as well, the terrain is just “unique.”

My friends that live here describe it as boring, but as a world traveler on a mission to see as much as you can the forests, the streams, the animals, and then urban technology you see in places like Stockholm and Gothenburg make it well worth it.
