Magical Angkor

Angkor, I’m ever so happy to finally see you.

It was a two-fer. I got to go to a place I’ve been dreaming to see for the longest and I got to squeeze in a half-marathon there, too.

Angkor is unbelievable. The abundance in texture, detail, and history is hard to take all in one go. I was lucky to have gone with people who are pretty gung-ho about going here and there, and scrambling up and down places, and getting dirty, so that bit was pretty good. Still, one day I hope to return and get my fill of it all; I still crave for more it seems. I, unfortunately, am not “templed-out.”

More to come in the next few. I’m still in transit. I just felt the need to share these as soon as possible.
