  Monday 23rd February 2015 We stayed in Phnom Penh for 3 nights and very much  enjoyed our time there, but it was now time to set off back to Thailand. We were going to use the same border crossing that we left by. We set off from the Hotel at 9.30am, the traffic in […]

The first meal out in Phnom Penh was a disaster the steak was inedible and such a disappointment. In the past when we have been in Phnom Penh we have dined at this restaurant (La Marmite). After the meal we had a couple of beers then went back to the hotel. The next morning Mao […]

  Thursday 19th February 2015 After arriving in Kampot I tried the same trick again ? We found the Tourist Information Office on the banks of the river and I asked if we could plug Plodd in to their electricity, it nearly worked but the brother of the guy I was talking to turned up […]

Hi Everybody, I have just undertaken a big job on Plodd, the 24v aircon works so good that when it is on it blasts cold air out that much that the condensation (water) blows out with the air all over the inside, so I decided to re site the aircon unit under Plodd, what a […]

Well unfortunately Plodd is back on the move! I say unfortunately because we thought we would be able to keep Plodd in Thailand until we decided what to do next with her, however, the Thai authorities have other ideas. As I put in earlier notes we only got 30 days for Plodd to stay in […]
