    Since this is about motorcycling through Cambodia I thought I would share the place where I rent bikes in Phnom Penh. I've known Johnny for about 3 years and he is the only one I trust when it comes to bike rental. You will see my stickers on most of his bikes. He is an honest and just all around great guy. I'm very happy to share this very short video I made for him here. If you are traveling to Phnom Penh looking for a motorcycle to rent check out Johnny at Victory Motorbike.

    Every time I return to Cambodia I'm not so subtly reminded how OUT OF MY WORLD I am. Cambodia remains a place where a traveler can have a truly unique experience. Most of that rides on the back of the people you will meet. They are just as interested in you as you are in them...Simply amazing!

    Met these guys in the Jungle of Cambodia...they are from FRANCE and riding their bicycles across ASIA...HOLY COW!! These guys had some crazy stories but as we talked and they looked critically what propelled them to continue to succeed on their ride...Its jumping in when everyone else tells you to turn around. Best wishes guys! I'll be following

    I held a photo workshop in the jungle called "portals". This is where you give kids (students) some photography training and then hand them cameras to take photos of their home. Then you take 30 of the photos and publish them to show people who have never been there what that place is like. I just finished the edit and I'm super stoked. It was hard to choose only 30 but they were great...here are a few of the pics i got while the kids were taking pictures. None of these pics will be in the final project only the pics the kids took.

    I've made a series of VIDEOs called "Cambodia Travel Guide." I made these videos to give my contacts in Cambodia and hopefully help someone plan a ride there. This video is from Osoam and this village is pretty much the main reason why I go to CAMBODIA...In the videos I talk about where I rent my bikes, time and distance between cities, road dangers, my favorite points of interest, hotels/guesthouses I stay in, best restaurants...you get the picture. Every time I go to Cambodia I have a better experience so these are just to help the next person!

    Thanks! I'm happy to report these laptops have the potential to help the whole community! Adults as well...if they choose to use them.
