Siem Reap Cambodia

For the past week I’ve been in Cambodia checking out the temples in Siem Reap. As you can see from the picture above, it has been a great adventure. I’ll be heading over to Thailand shortly, but happy Canada Day weekend to all the folks back home. I’ve been traveling since October 2012 and it has been a great experience, but it will be nice to come home in late July. Now onto dividends and such…
