With my two days off, I decided to rent a motor bike for the first time ever and drive down the coast to Kep. It's lovely beach town 25km south of Kampot and 45km from the Vietnam boarder. I spent the first day cruising around then relaxing at my hotel before going to The Sailing Club to watch the sunset. I was up early the next day to take a short boat ride over to Rabbit Island. It was a perfect day where I could just relax in a hammock, have a massage and lunch. Simple and beautiful.
My first week in Cambodia has been wonderful and welcoming! I'm so happy I made the decision to come here. I'm a volunteer yoga teacher for the Banteay Srey Project in Kampot which is a refuge for women's transformation. The trainees offer spa services such as body scrub, full massage, facials, and manicure/pedicure. Every morning we do a 30 minute morning yoga class together. Another teacher will have a stronger morning practice 9:30-11:00am while I've been teaching a more gentle flow/yin 5-6:30pm. Here's a look at the past week:
