Finding an Apartment in Cambodia
We made the move from Ecuador to Cambodia, and after a 2 week long quarantine, it’s time to find an apartment in Phnom Penh. Apartment hunting in Cambodia is a wild ride. There are a ton of options at a variety of levels. I’m here to break it all down for you.

Right now, as I type this, I am sitting in a hotel in Cambodia.
We recently moved from Ecuador to Cambodia – a move that was about 6 months in the making. Back in January, Sara was offered a teaching job at what seems to be an incredible school. We were ready to leave Ecuador and go back to Asia, so the move was planned for early July.
Even though we had moved to a new country 5 times already, it’s always difficult packing up everything you own and flying across the world.

The Galapagos Islands – truly a once in a life time experience
We spent a total of 6 nights – half on the mainland and half on a cruise ship.
There’s a lot of argument online about what’s better: a cruise, which costs a lot more, or the cheaper land-based stays. I recorded every penny and in this article I’ll breakdown the costs of a Galapagos trip, both the cruise and the land-based island hopping versions.

We are seasoned travelers. We’ve been to over 30 countries. We’ve taken beat-up buses through dangerous switchbacks. We’ve shared rooms with snakes, rats, and who knows what else. We’ve spewed liquid out of both ends in both hemispheres. And to be honest, I kind of like that aspect of travel. Unpredictability makes life exciting.
And then there’s India.
After booking a flight for a week-long trip to Taiwan, we started researching things to do. Our list ended up looking like a restaurant menu. For us, food is almost always the highlight of a good trip, but in Taiwan the possibilities overwhelmed us. I was more excited about a Taipei night market, than I was Ankor Wat or Machu Picchu. We decided to stay in Taipei for the whole week, and basically live like a local – a local that’s on the highway to obesity.
