Tourist Boat

Tourist Boat. This is one of the boats that takes the tourists to the local islands surrounding the Sihanoukville area. I have not taken a ride on any of the boats myself. I have heard from lots of unhappy people. Some saying they were sold a different tour, and some saying they just wanted a ferry and found themselves going snorkeling before the final drop off point.

They only come into shore every few days so when I saw one this morning I quickly grabbed my camera and waded into the water to get up nice and close. This boat had just unloaded and was getting ready to leave.

Big departure

So today is the day that most of the regular season employees of Sea Garden are leaving for the season. As I write this I am surrounded by people hugging and wishing each other well. Most of them are going off to Siem Reap, and after that they are all breaking up and going their own different ways.

Thats one of the things with travel. Friends are made fast, and move on fast. Sometimes it’s possible to keep in touch and others you know they will never be seen again. It’s impossible to be able to keep up with everyone met on the road. Sometimes I just wonder who are the ones I will still be taking to in 5 or ten years.

And

I had so much fun working on photos today. It’s been awhile since i just kept grinding through and getting images I liked.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
