"Hi Aaron and Aparna We are now back in Singapore after a fantastic adventure in Cambodia. Once again we loved all the stuff that took us off the beaten track. Sophea did a great job, he has such a lovely big smile. One of the highlights was the visit to his village and his Mum cooking us lunch after the ox cart ride, his family made us feel so welcome in their very humble abode. Thanks for another incredible trip!"
