We spent the last three days in Siem Reap, exploring the vast temples of Angkor Archeological Park. The number of visitors was soaring but we still managed to get some 窶彗lmost窶 private time with some of the temples, taking in all the mystical and magic atmosphere of such a wonderful creation. Tomorrow we窶冤l get once again on our bikes to head towards the Thai border.

We had to leave Kep.. eventually! Kampot, around 25km up the road, has kept us busy enjoying all sorts of Western food we have been craving on our trip (eggs benedict!). We happily hooked up again with the amazing @joe.folkard & @sofahunt and shared some pork ribs, cheap draught beer and laughs. We have also finally met @naomiduguid, whose knowledge of the world, cultures and food are inspiring. By the way, this big Durian doesn窶冲 smell!

Kep has a fascinating history, including a period of French colonisation during the 60窶冱 which turned this sleepy seaside town into a luxury complex of designer villas for the elite from around the world. It was destroyed by the Khmer Rouge and subsequent Civil War leaving a ghost town of decaying buildings - amazing to visit. This one even had some artwork by Belgian street artist Roa!

We have been lazing around in the quiet coastal towns of Kep and Kampot the last few days, enjoying the peace and quiet after Vietnam. We窶况e also had some time to finish up Episode Four on YouTube - check it out - link in bio. .

After an easy border crossing into Cambodia we felt free! Away from the constant tooting of the busy Vietnamese roads, the smooth tarmac rolled under us and we squealed with delight. So what did we do? We chose to take the unmarked, sandy and bog-laden paths along the coast to Kep! Sand is probably the worst surface to cycle, and not much easier to push through, but look at that smile!

We reached Ha Tien, which means it窶冱 our last day in Vietnam! It窶冱 been a crazy seven weeks filled with highs and so many lows that we almost ran away after 3 weeks. Thankfully, Southern Vietnam from Hue to the Delta, has been predominantly an enjoyable experience and we窶决e glad we stayed. Tomorrow we will roll over the border into Cambodia with our eyes set on the calm, clear blue waters and unlimited seafood. Thanks for having us, Vietnam, we sure won窶冲 forget you.. for better or worse.

Second last day in Vietnam and we are loving the Delta窶冱 hidden lanes and bridges that wind through peaceful villages away from all the traffic. We stopped off at a beautiful cacao farm and learnt about production - unfortunately the owners children have moved off to the city to earn money and the farm is in jeopardy. It窶冱 hot and sweaty, and we still  have another 70k to go, but it窶冱 been a great morning.

Day two on the Mekong Delta. Today we went off exploring Ben Tre Province aka the Coconut Island! Palm trees, raised paths winding between marshland, rickety bridges, quiet villages. Leaving the main roads and venturing off down unnamed paths isn窶冲 always the best idea - of course we got lost! Don窶冲 trust anything google maps or maps.me tell you, although it was fun anyway!

After getting out of the messy Saigon traffic, we took some back roads and headed towards the Delta. Around the 50km mark the traffic disappeared and the fields of rice, pineapple, coconut and dragon fruit started to appear. Here窶冱 hoping our last week in Vietnam stays as beautiful as it was today!

Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City? There窶冱 no shortage of Uncle Ho images here. Some fantastic architecture including the Central Post office and the impressive Independence Palace, too. A few days rest here before we head to the delta and then onto Cambodia!

Highway 1 links Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh and is a busy old road, yet people living right on it make the most of the hard shoulder. Just ahead of these drying rice crackers, the shoulder was completely covered with straw, awaiting their production into sleeping mats. It may not be the most beautiful road in Vietnam to cycle, but it sure is fascinating!

We found a resort that was being refurbished and the owner let us not only camp, but use his shower. He cooked us an amazing dinner and even delivered cold beer to the tent! It窶冱 been a while since we camped, and falling asleep listening to the waves crashing was a very welcome change.
