    Postcards Home – Week 59

    To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,

    Last week’s escapades led us to the capital of Vietnam – Hanoi.

    Postcards Home – Week 56

    Once we’d left our flour-soft sandy beach haven of Koh Rong, we caught a boat and bus to a cute colonial seaside town called Kampot, which is renowned for its pungent pepper plantations.

    Situated on the South coast of Cambodia around an hour from the Vietnamese border, this peaceful town is sprinkled in rustic sand-coloured colonial buildings, cosy corner cafes and most prominently, a laid-back promenade overlooking the Kampot River.
