Before each New Year, I look back at my journal and write a recap. It usually consists of how I feel about the year coming to a close & a new one beginning, my most memorable moments & significant events and things I was most grateful for. The last part of my entry is dedicated to goals and continuous dreams -if they haven't come true yet!- for the New Year. Each year there's a section about travel, I always want to visit new cities and explore new corners of the world with either J, my family or my bestest friends. Lucky me, 2 weeks into 2012 and I'm already visiting a new city -country, actually!- with my best friend.
SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA
My trip started off with VIP service, Aileen was at the international airport in a tuk-tuk ready and waiting for my arrival. There's a very comforting feeling being greeted by a familiar face in a sea, and city, of strangers. I spotted my bestie right away and we were off to our hotel in a matter of minutes. We didn't stay long as it was getting a bit late and we didn't want to waste any time... The plan for the night was to feel out the Old Market area and find a restaurant to have dinner at. After walking around, we decided on Cafe Central - a spacious, breezy all day cafe. Their menu has everything from the usual breakfast suspects, coffee -my favorite Illy!-, options for hearty or light lunches, great snackies, cocktails and lots of choices for the dinner crowd. Aileen and I shared a bacon/chicken/broccoli pizza and the mezze platter, both of which we finished with ease ;)
