I dream a dream


Don’t worry I am not going to talk about how Anne Hathaway sang the song terrible .. Opps did I say it out loud? I am talking about that time in your life when you saw a picture of something mystical and dreamt of visiting that place or when you saw Lara Croft jumping around the temple of Angkor Thom, did you have that moment?

I did.

When T suggested Cambodia for our first trip together outside Japan, I was so excited, finally Angkor !!

I have envied for a long time my co-workers and friends who have visited the place and kept on dreaming of seeing it with my own eyes and finally I did.

T and I decided to explore the Angkor area on a bicycle and it was the right decision. First stop is Angkor Wat.

Then we cycled for minutes and then reached Angkor Thom and visited The many faces of The Bayon.

At the back of Bayon , you can find Baphuon .

Ta Phrom is about 15-20 minutes by bicycle but it was worth it. There are more temple along the way but we decided to go directly to Ta Phrom.

It was an unforgettable experience and I am thankful for it.

      Yes they are, I was really fascinated by the place. There are still restorations going on in Ta Phrom but the trees are left as they are. I think the one in top(middle) was featured in Lara Croft movie.

Any thoughts?
