Sunday Snapshot: Going green

Hiking in Hocking Hills over the weekend led us to come across some stunning scenery. Maybe distance is making me grow fonder of Ohio after all.

Sunday Snapshot: It's usually sunny in Philadelphia

First trip to Philadelphia over the past 36 hours was lovely, from running up the Rocky Steps to scarfing down a cheesesteak (with whiz and onions). So yes, I've got lots of good vibes towards the City of Brotherly Love.

Destination: Koh Rong and Sihanoukville (Cambodia)

The second part of my Cambodian trip last year (first part here) took us away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Sihanoukville is a seaside town on the west coast of Cambodia, and serves as a jumping-off point to a number of pristine islands that are a boat ride away. From there, we went to Koh Rong, an island where nobody checked their watch and just enjoyed the powerful beauty of nature. It was an amazingly calm locale, and many backpackers had taken up residence here in the middle of their travels as employees at the hostels and restaurants.

Sunday Snapshot: Cruising through the Big Easy

Nothing beats a streetcar ride through the streets of New Orleans. We had a busy 24 hours down south but it was a wonderful weekend. Congratulations to Emily for her first appearance on the blog.
