Abel Tasman

Abel Tasman national park lies in the top of the South Island of New Zealand. The park offers a splendid coastal track following the shoreline past the many bays, beaches and rivers.

The park can be accessed from two sides, Golden bay and Kaiteriteri. You can walk for a couple of days or just go on a day trip taking a water taxi that drops you off at a beach and than picks you up at an other beach later during the day.

One thing to keep in mind is to check the tide table when planning your trip, some parts of the tracks are flooded on high tide, and can be dangerous to cross.

Fading Away

When in Thailand we also took the time to visit Cambodia. After taking the boat from Battambang across the Tonlé Sap lake to Seam Reap we spend a couple of days straying through the ruins of Angkor which was once the capital of the Khmer Empire.

Angkor covers a vast area with magnificent temples partly covered by jungle. Carvings and statues show the faces of the past that are gradually fading away though times.

This place is certainly worth a visit, you can easily spend a couple of days there. The transition from the border from Thailand to Cambodia can take a bit of time though.
