Photographer's Note

‘Kampot - Another example of more ambience than sights’

My third and last photo of Kampot.
This is the kind of boats with tourists that sail on the Preaek Tuek Chhu River in the evening in the centre of town. Probably a strange sight for those who were in Kampot years ago.

In my previous note I already wrote this town wasn't exactly my cup of tea.
Far too many tourists hanging out just about everywhere and without many sights around.
Just my own personal opinion.
Most westerners seemed to like it there.


During my (only) long-term journey in my life I took heaps of photos that I suspected I could only show a limited number of on this site because I would probably make another trip in a next year.

When I came back home we were in the midst of the corona pandemic and travel (and a lot of other things) were restricted.
Since travelling seemed impossible for a long time, I decided to show as many photos of my Asian journey as possible.

In the meantime I have been home for 15 months and I realise that I’m only half way through the number of pictures I would like to show for a representative overview of the trip :)
I don't know if I will succeed completely.

Somewhere there’s a fatigue or at least a feeling that I’m too long on the same subject.
I think this is because I really miss a new trip.
The desire to travel is evident. However, although the infection rates are improving in large parts of Europe, they’re still far from ideal. I can't imagine taking a 'classic journey of me’ without having a wrong contact.

Even if you have had both doses of the vaccine, you remain susceptible to infection. Few still get seriously ill, but you can still infect others and I think it remains our responsibility to prevent the latter.
So for now on this site I will stay in Asia for a bit longer.
