Armchair Travelling – Cambodia

Who’s up for a magical journey to Cambodia?

Bonjour From Brittany

The onset of Spring here has brought us little respite from increased Covid infections and further travel restrictions. This means that another virtual journey is in order and so, for Wordless Wednesday, I propose another holiday in Cambodia to revisit the fascinating Angkor Archaeological Park which contains the remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century.


















It is humbling to imagine how much human history has passed by the way while these temples have stood resolute down the centuries! Stay well!

  1. It is hard to imagine building these incredible structures with all the history and architecture. They’re beautiful. The tree is very cool!

    • Yes, these photos suggest so much culture and history…sadly, they have had very dark times as well, but understanding their past would be a great way to pay tribute to them! Thanks as always for commenting, love getting your thoughts!

      • Well said, John. If people knew about history… sadly most do not. Honestly, I think history should be a bigger focus in high school. When our son was in prep school in New Hampshire, he had to take ‘religion’ in order to graduate. He was dreading it. As it turned out, that course was really philosophy and history- and it was his favorite. As a preschool teacher, my students love history, especially through my chapter reading books.

      • The lack of interest by so many in how we got to where we are today – and the horrible lessons that were learned – is one reason we are doomed to repeat them!

      • Interesting point, and very true…sort of. Teachers can instill interest (which is the most important starting point), and those history lessons can best be learned by a teacher reading aloud powerful stories of history and injustice to their class. The glass-half-full here teaches history in so many different ways to preschoolers. Hopefully they have a foundation to continue to learn and to question.

        When I read aloud the statement in Little House on the Prairie, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian”, I slam the book down and looked shocked. We have a long and deep conversation. I need to introduce history, and also ‘right and wrong’ when it comes to people. So, if I keep doing what I do, perhaps some people aren’t doomed to repeat.


  2. These are amazing pictures, John. A great share.

  3. My good friend Antony and his wife have been to Cambodia twice in the last few years, John. He also took some great photos of the temple complexes, as well as everyday life in the ‘stilt-houses’, and remote fishing villages. It was like going back in time.
    Best wishes, Pete.
