Hey guys! A week ago I touched down in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and what a week it has been. I was greeted by both a wall of heat and humidity, and the lovely Cambodian Leap team, and taken to a hostel not too far from the town centre. Soon enough, all the Leapers were getting… Read More

Our time in Siem Reap is now over and it feels bitter sweet, a month is quite a long time to spend somewhere and there is only so much $0.50 beer you can tolerate drinking and we became a bit too familiar with X bar. However we made our little volunteers house a home with… Read More
