Day 51 – Sihanoukville

Barely call it a cycle day, but we did do 3kms, so I suppose it counts as our shortest day’s ride so far. We haven’t quite got used to Cambodian time. We ordered breakfast at 7am and thought we would be finished by 7:30 ready to leave for the bus at 7:45. At 7:40 my breakfast had still not arrived, so it was a mad rush and getting my breakfast take away to make it to the bus on time.

There are many benefits to cycling and not being beholden to other people’s timetables is one of them. My preference was to ride through the Peam Krasaop Wildlife Sanctuary and other wilderness, but I couldn’t convince the others to ride 100kms up and down mountains without any towns to break. Instead we took the bus direct to Sihanoukville and had a relaxing afternoon on the beach. Julie even had some pampering and hair removal while we played in the surf. Which would you choose?

  1. 100% would have chosen Julie getting hair removal. If you’d gone the wilderness route and she hadn’t had hair removal she might have been kidnapped and adopted by a troop of monkeys.

          1. But you’re a cyclist, shouldn’t your whole body be hair free to make it more aerodynamic? haha

          2. This body was never going to be hair free. Luckily we have Maurice (human gorilla) or else I would be the hairiest in the family.

  2. Beware of that troop. Women need pampering. I have some in Perth next week. International Women’s Day today. I am woman hear me roar!!
