Tonle Sap – Water, Sky and Sunset (#42)

The boat ride leading out to the massive open waters of Tonle Sap lake was very relaxing. We had the boat to ourselves and the open top deck gave me an uninterrupted view of my surroundings. Tonle Sap was huge, with its quiet calm waters expanding into the horizon. I felt I was in another world where time stood still.

Slowly, the sky turned orange, creating a spectacular painting of golden hues across its borderless canvass. Does the boat driver realise how lucky he is to witness this transformation every evening?

Angkor’s temples are magnificent, but if you ask me about my happiest memory from this trip, it would have to be the leisurely boat ride on Tonle Sap, touching the wind, breathing in the natural scent of my surroundings and watching the sky change colour.

What a beautiful way to wrap up the day!

      1. I have so many travel ideas for this year… though I am trying not to plan so much, sometimes is good to improvise a bit 😀 but I know that there will be Brazil 2 times this year, as have to visit my family and also go to my best friend’s wedding 😀
        Denmark is also on the list for sure!!

        What about you? Any travel plans for 2015?

      2. I have a few pressing issues on the home front, and that is why I have not been blogging for some time. I definitely want to travel but bit looks like any plans will only materialise in the second half of this year. Will keep everyone updated once my travel plans are more concrete. 🙂
