After 2 long days of searching for the house (cycling around Siem Reap and asking people around, visiting 10 local houses and 4 flats in total), we have finally found the place of our dreams- 3 bedroom semi-detached house for me, Cez and Barbara (joining us very soon). Let’s have a look how we, tramps, are going to live for the next few months in the “Land of Smiles”.
Ladies and gentlemen, make yourself home… :)
The front door
Our corridor. I love the Cambodian masks hanging on the wall!
Apart from the masks, we have also plenty of Cambodian pictures hanging on the walls all over the house.
My bedroom. It’s very modest and pretty big. I have a huge wardrobe in the corner, TV and make-up mirror.
Have a closer look.
That’s Barbara’s room. Hope the green colour will make her feel energetic and positive all the time :).
Cez’s working here right now until Barbara’s back.
Cez’s room (it was supposed to be our living room hehehe).
Our kitchen fully equipped with stove, fridge and water container. Our landlord makes sure we have everything we need.
Let’s look through the window.
There are adorable kids always playing outside our house.
We have lovely neighbours here.
And very funny :).
Our garden and the landlord- extremely hospitable and friendly lad!
Mini temple so we can pray to Buddha :).
Recycling place :).
Palm trees surrounding us!
It’s green, sunny and beautiful every day :).
The road is a nightmare though.
But kids look like they don’t mind it :).
Green, green, everywhere’s green!
And the flowers I water on a regular basis to keep our house flowery.
I have been over the moon since moving in. I wake up in the morning and make a breakfast in the garden enjoying the beautiful weather (unless it rains). Love Siem Reap, so happy to be living here <3.
From now on, I will be sharing my work and travel experience in Cambodia living like a local and tramp.
